I finished reading Emergence two days ago, and I'm still suffering from the book hangover it's left me in!
In this beautiful, action packed story, we follow the tale of a girl named Asha. She is introduced to a whole new world, The Infernal Guard, where she learns about all the creatures of the underworld who would try and destroy humans. Asha and her new friends learn to fight evil, and also how to grow up together while dealing with this strange new world!
The dialog in this book is probably my favorite part. The back and forth between Lexi and Asha reminds me of so many of my friends. It's effortless, and even in the beginning of the book I felt like I already knew Lexi and Asha. Lexi is the kind of character you want to pull right out of the book and insert into your circle of friends. She's smart and sassy, beautiful and loving, and a total bad ass. I'm such a sucker for powerful female characters who don't need rescuing, and the female characters in Emergence are bad ass chicks. If you're a fan of Buffy the Vampire slayer like me, you'll enjoy how these girls dominate.
World building is so important in a good fantasy, and the descriptions in Emergence make me feel like I'm right in the middle of everything. I have such a vibrant picture in my mind of Nidhan's home, and the headquarters, the classrooms, the restaurants, etc. I learned so much about Indian culture, exotic food and clothing, weapons created for specific monsters, monsters I could never even imagine! I absolutely love how much detail went into explaining underworlders and how they're killed, how they hunt, what their weaknesses are. When Uma talks about the history and folklore, I found myself completely enthralled. In Emergence, you're not just introduced to new creatures, you get a full, rich backstory.
The relationships built in this story gave me all the mushy feels. The friendships are deep and meaningful. They respect each other and want to see each other succeed. Even when there's a hint of jealousy, or misunderstanding, they work through it. When they fell in love, I fell in love right along with them. My heart was swelling with that love-at-first-sight feeling we all experience with our first real love. There's so much more I wish I could say, but I don't want to ruin anything!
This book grabbed a hold of me and refused to let go. It's enchanting, haunting, action packed, and heartbreaking. I need the second one right now! If you haven't read this book, go read it right now. And then tell everyone else! Because this deserves all the hype!
I think it is exceptional for a first novel!
Okay so going into this book I was not sure what to expect. I had talked to the author (lovely human btw) and just knew I was excited to read it! It was SO different than what I had thought. It was fast paced, funny, and sweet! It was honestly so different than other books I've read and that alone I believe is a feat! The way the story moves is very quick, some parts a bit too quick for me (Asha's first kiss.. saw it coming but not at that moment). But the weapons and food and killing techniques were all so different than the norm. Especially the killing techniques! I loved the references to Indian culture. The names were unique and interesting to read.
Next, the powers. So. Freaking. Cool. I would love to train at their headquarters and get those amazing sounding weapons. Not to mention the state of the art rooms (i.e that bathtub!). Such a cool book absolutely worth checking out!
