I could tell that great care and detail were put in developing the universe of dimensions and Sliders, but I still found myself confused from time to time, trying to keep up with explanations or new, complicated aspects of the world. But that's pretty usual for me when starting a new fantasy series. I was able to catch on to what was going on eventually.
I really enjoyed learning about and immersing myself in this new world. This is definitely a first book in a series though, because, while there was a plot, much of the story was spent world-building and explaining how the system works instead of following a lot of action.
This book is very fast paced and filled to the brim with beautifully written descriptions and great characters.
I really loved Hawk. I don't usually care for the dark and mysterious type of characters, but I found that I was more intrigued with her chapters than Ion's. Ion got extremely frustrating sometimes. I didn't hate him necessarily, I just really wanted to lock him up in a basement somewhere so that he would stop messing things up. The secondary characters were also memorable. I adored Fin so much! And I became interested in Sensei as well. I would love to read a book about his backstory.
There are incredible themes of trust and redemption woven throughout the whole story that were amazing! It wasn't until the exciting climax of the book hit that I realized it was an allegory. There were some crazy powerful scenes towards the end --especially between Hawk and Sensei-- that made the reader reflect on their own life without being preachy. It reminded me of a modern, sci-fi, teenage Narnia in a way.
I'm so excited to see where the series will go from here and how K.A. Emmons will grow in her writing and story telling. After that cliff hanger I'm dying for more!
I found a few typos and some words were used so much that it took me out of the book's world a few times (expound and literally), BUT it didn't bother me. I kept reading and will continue reading this series because it is THAT good.
You will fall in love with the world of The Blood Race. It's different, exciting, and well thought out. You'll also fall in love with the characters and their flaws (and let me tell ya, they got a lot). These characters feel real though. They feel like long-lost friends that I haven't seen in years, and that means the hardships they go through will hurt. But it's totally worth it.
I haven't read such an original story or one that completely captivated my attention in a long time. I'm intrigued, excited, scared, and more. And I have missed that feeling. Thank you, K.A. Emmons. Thank you.

The name Ion. I like the name, I definitely do, but the whole book I was wondering if it was pronounced ee-in or...Read more
