If that sounds a little bit like the origin of Rogue in X-Men, well, Wendy and her younger brother think so, too. And if the research institute Wendy goes to, to try and understand what's happened to her, and hopefully to control or reverse it, reminds you of Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, that's no accident either. The author describes Colorworld and its sequels as "superhero books set in the real world" and she does a fantastic job with that premise.
The book is well written, the characters are complex and well-developed, the ideas the author plays with are compelling, and there are twists and turns aplenty along the way. The story is told from Wendy's first-person perspective, so we're in her head the whole time as her abilities blossom, as she falls in love, and we see everything that her newly expanded senses reveal in beautiful detail.
I highly recommend this book, and I'm already onto Teleworld (book 2 in the series).
The authors style of writing is lyrical. The words have a cadence that sweeps you along with the story.
The relationship with Wen and Gabe is beautiful. I am a voracious reader and it was refreshing to see a relationship I could relate to instead of one so paranormal it seemed rushed and unbelievable.
I loved the storyline, and the relationships that Wen has with people. Her supernatural abilities actually make her relatable, and I found myself wishing I had a Wen in my life.
Things I didn't like.
The story was over too soon. I wanted a few more answers before I was left to wait for the next book. I blame all the fast past paranormal drivel I usually read. I loved this book. It almost like hearing someone's against-all-odds love story and then having them stop halfway through it. You know it ends happy, but that doesn't change the anticipation and frustration of not knowing how their happily ever after came about.
Kudos to Miss Kelly for a fantastic story, I'm ready for the next book now.
with the story continuing
A quick read that's extremely difficult to put down. Can't wait for book 2.
