Story elements are revealed in their proper order. There was no confusion, even when something new was introduced.
As the story progressed, I grew increasingly fond of the main character. Serious things were happening, but the vulnerability and humor remained. I think it was a good choice of the author to tell the tale through the eyes of the main character. The author put me, the reader, in the MCs head on page one and kept me there.
This one gets all five stars.
I don't want to give away much more of the story than that. But the story is much more than just the testing. It covers her daily life, her friendships with other residents, the way she is keeping a huge secret hidden from the man who runs the facility, and much more.
The story is engaging and fascinating and didn't end at all as I thought it might. And for those who like to have their books wrapped up tightly in a little package, prepare to be disappointed. The story doesn't end here and the book is definitely primed for a sequel.
I highly recommend this book for young adults and mature adults as well. This is one of the top ten most well written books I've downloaded in the last year. I recommend that the author shop this book around and have it printed and sold as well. It's that good and it makes it available for those who don't read in electronic format. Well done Styna.
To the author: Since I'm a stickler for such things, if you get a chance to edit this novel and re-release it or release it in print...they are called pallbearers, not Paul-bearers, and it's an aisle, not an isle. And why does looking at Al increase her ability strength? You never explained that.
Angela is an amazing character and you get pulled right into her life to feel everything she feels.
I couldn't stop reading until i unfortunately ran out of book to read.
Angie is very likeable, and wondering whether Al was one of the good guys kept me turning pages. Also, her relationship with Eric was very well written. William was a sometimes convincing villain, but he had his human moments.
There were a few disappointing moments as well.
Then I got to the end - you could as well have printed in big letters: "To be continued".
Cliff hangers are my pet peeve.
As much as I enjoyed this book, I won't buy the sequels, and this one has already been deleted from my Kindle.
It would be a great service to potential readers if an author or publisher would put a cliff hanger warning in their description.
If nothing else, I could avoid some 1* reviews for books that deserve better.
If you don't mind cliff hangers, this is actually a pretty good intro to the characters of the story.
