I like the way Ms. Millard uses Mackenzie's voice throughout the story. The language and way she writes Mackenzie's thoughts and emotions are relatable. She is thrown into intense situations quickly and never falters. Perhaps her only fault is how well she is able to process those moments, which in reality I think would leave you quite stunned. When you're thrown into the moment and are left to sink or swim though, the situation calls for action and Mackenzie doesn't disappoint in this novel. She pieces things together and tries to help herself instead of standing by as a victim. I kept wondering the whole novel if there were more to her panic attacks than what meets the eye, so I was happy to have that answer by the end. Mackenzie's parents weren't mentioned as much as I thought they might be, so I hope more of their history is revealed as the series continues in the next book.
Eli Markham ends up frustrating me quite a bit more than I expected him to, but he's still endearing knowing his past and how he is trying to protect Mackenzie the best way he knows how. He seems to be really appreciative of his uncle, and I feel bad for him with everything he's been through from both his mother and his father. I love his protective nature. A lot of Eli's behavior or nuances in personality are so much more easy to understand as the story evolves. Every time I feel like you learn a piece about him though, he backs off in a way that made me frustrated.
Sam is actually more of my favorite male character in this first book. He is that great guy that looks out for Mackenzie and seems to have all good motives. I found myself wondering if his altruistic motives were going to lead to a romantic entanglement with Mackenzie, but I'll leave that answer for other readers to find out. Sam seems loyal and trustworthy, but his involvement in the pack and with Ezra make you wonder about him (and Daniel and the rest of them), but he seems to slowly gain Mackenzie's trust and respect, and he gained mine as well. I hope he doesn't disappoint moving forward.
I would have liked to read in this book a little more about Ezra, the pack, the house and the history there, but I'm hoping that maybe some of that comes in book two. There were plenty of supernatural things introduced in this novel that I'd love to hear more about as Mackenzie's story continues. The book did a nice job of some foreshadowing where Mackenzie's panic attacks and senses were concerned, but left enough to wonder where it was heading that I just couldn't put the book down. The way a lot of the characters end up intertwined by the end of the novel was also something I might have had a hunch about, but not nearly to the extent as you find out in the end. Nice job for Ms. Millard writing the slime ball villain of the story too. I wouldn't want to meet him on any day; he was creepy as all get out and completely evil.
Overall-loved the novel. Like I said, I couldn't put it down. A must-read for those that like this genre. I can't wait to read the next one.
**Disclaimer: I have received this book for free from the We ♥ YA Books! group and the author in exchange for a honest review.**
As an author, I always try to support other authors in this crazy pursuit of writing, so I sign up for read to reviews every chance I can. I don't do it with the expectation of giving 5 stars. Not ever. I feel like all scripts could use some improvement and am always honest in my reviews. Going into this story, I wasn't sure how I would like the script. Based on the blurb, I just wasn't sure it would appeal to me, but I wanted to give it a try....
Dude.....SO glad I did. This story is unlike any I have ever read. At first, it's hard to understand what's actually happening. Not because of a writing flaw, but because of the nature of the story. You get subtle hints that the world the author has created isn't like ours, but the intrigue keeps you reading. You have tons of questions and the author does not disappoint-answering them all by the last page. The humor and the snark are strong, as are the dimensions of the characters. The protagonist is lovable, her love interest is a great mix of snark and alpha. You get easily swept into the story, and by the time you finish the last page, you immediately find yourself looking up Millard on Amazon to see what other books she's written.
I highly recommend this story for lovers of young adult fiction. Very well-crafted, Millard.
The characters were supernatural beings whether they were aware of it or not. There wasn't alot of complexity to most of the characters. Eli was the most layered having being the 'tall, handsome and brooding', guy that suddenly showed interest in Mackenzie. He was the one who opened up and showed more of himself. Mackenzie and Nicky were pretty much open books.
The author chose to blend supernatural with the human world. Mackenzie being inexplicably strong when having a 'panic attack' and Nicky being able to see things or have 'feelings', lent the characters to much speculation about their supernatural powers.The book progressed quickly and jumped right into the action. The enemies became friends and protectors. The real enemy remained "Faceless". I guess that was deliberate. What saved this book was that there was some closure. We got reasons why things happened, a sense of who the enemy really was and that things would change. These changes would eventually evolve into something good.
Honestly,the plot was to the point and didn't give a sense of depth. This book was good but seemed more like a 'long short story" if you will.
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review.
