***I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book, through Reading Deals, so I could give an honest review.***
This book had me hooked from the first sentence and I found myself lost in the world that David has created. I fell in love with the main characters from the beginning but they weren't the only aspects that made this book spectacular. David obviously put a lot of thought and work into each character and each of their personality traits. He managed to portray the struggle within that each person carried and how that affected the way they reacted and interacted with each other. Benjamin was so well written, with his intense desire to do the right thing at any cost but being misguided as far as what that right thing would be. He was such a conflicted person and I felt so sorry for him. Jason and Helene had so much to struggle with as they tried to find the best way to help Kailani without getting into trouble themselves and the difficulties between Helena and her mother. The story line was seamless, and everything progressed in a way that didn't drag out too long or try to hurry you to the ending. I enjoyed every moment of reading this book and was a little sad to see it end because I wanted to find out what would happen to Jason and Helena, Kailani, and her parents, really all involved. This wasn't the first book I've read by this author and I dearly hope that it's not going to be the last.
I didn't care of any of the main characters. The difference between the two worlds (spiritual vs. material/pragmatic) was too weak. The main character (Kailani) was one-dimensional.
Based on an interesting concept, this book should have been so much better.
Without giving the plot away this is not a simple good versus bad story, rather a conflict between two contrasting ideologies. The author cleverly takes some fairly predictable scenarios and puts a nice twist to them.
I have read all of David Litwack’s books and this one is in the same vein as his first, There Comes a Prophet.
I would recommend this book particularly to young people. It provides an excellent forum for the constant struggle between the rational and visceral, as well as the contrasting deductive and inductive thought processes.
I enjoyed reading the book.
