Edit note: ok so... I'm going to change my rating. First time ever! :) i actually talked with author and found a very frustrated writer. She paid not one but two editors to go through her book with a fine tooth comb! So shame on those editors!! If you're a writer you might want to check with this author so you don't use those same editors! So I'm changing rating to a 4 star and not punishing the author for the bad edit job. :) the story truly is really good and the characters are great!
POV switches between Kinzie and Greg, two college students who are both likable and relatable characters. There was, however, one point where I questioned something that seemed incongruent with Kinzie's character, and unfortunately that part was told through Greg's point of view, and so we never get to see how exactly she justifies it herself. Also, I had a bit of an issue with trying to keep track of lapses in time from one chapter to the next, when POV switched. But overall this was a fairly minor problem, and didn't detract too much from enjoying the book.
The plot with the Rothston Institute gets dealt with nicely, but at the end it was the romantic relationship I was really interested in, and I would have liked to see more of a discussion between the two involved about how they would resolve the issues that had split them apart before. You can see how it could be fixed, but still I wanted to see the actual exchange between the two addressing it. But perhaps I'll get my wish when I move on to the next installment of the series :)
I will say that I enjoyed the way that the author used science in the story when she could have easily just said “these kids have special supernatural powers!” This made me waver between 2 and 3 stars but the fact that it took me so long to finish the book and I actually took a break from it to read another book, unfortunately put it in the lower category.
There are a few pacing issues, especially in the beginning, but overall it was a fast read and well-written. I liked that the protagonists, though obviously endowed with more than their share of excellence, weren't perfect. There was also a fair amount of work done in developing the bad guys -- often an overlooked part of the craft.
I'm definitely looking forward to the second installment of the series.
