1: The friendships felt real if a little convoluted I mean really your friend is dealing with a lot and you go on to babble about how you are worried you parents and your brother are not getting along? Yeah that totally is something I would be talking about if my friend was dealing with all that stuff. Felt a little callous is all.
2: The brother was fun he felt more real than the main character really had much more maturity and was well a more fun character.
3: The ups and downs of relationships at that age where portrayed well.
4: The concept is fun with the difference between light and dark and the switch of perspectives.
5: The book flows well from action to dialogue and the plot is expanded at a good pace. I detected few typos or things that where written funny.
1: Whiny main character, really whiny. I don't want this to happen. Just go away. The world is ending. I don't want to do that. Over and over. There comes point where you want the main character to be fun to read about and this book the main character just kept with the same thing the same problem. One that she conveniently bypasses at the end of the book by differing the decision.
2: The magic is never really fleshed out at all instead you just have these people with abilities that take just reading a book and BAM they are all ready to go. Kinda felt flat on that.
3: The ending. Wow no spoilers but lets just say there is a thing called accessory to a crime. Oh and I don't for one minute believe that if you are an accessory to that kind of crime against me I am just going to be fine with you just walking away scot free. That was big disappointment. Add in the fact that the dilemma of the whole book was never really dealt with and you have a very unsatisfying ending.
Fun read but like I said it draws alot of preconceived things the whiny yet powerful person who wants nothing to do with their power. Until they are forced to use it. I don't know that I would recommend this to a friend and I probably will not follow the series.
There were some bright spots in the book. I thought that Rose had the potential to grow into an interesting character and there was some genuine attempt to develop her brother and her best friend as secondary characters with their own personalities and issues. While there was a twist in the novel regarding the love interest, I have to say that the boyfriend had zero personality.
Overall, I think the biggest reason that this didn't quite make it into the 3-star or above category was that the underlying story itself was a plot-by-numbers. There were no surprises and no real originality to the events that Rose had to go through. It was just too dull to rate it higher, regardless of the potential.
The lumenancers were a weak area in the book. I was left wanting to understand more about them and their motivations. I was also frustrated with Rose through the middle. She didn't take agency and acted too normal, even as she was threatened. Even so, the pace of the book kept me steadily reading on. I loved how Roland used Albuquerque as a setting, too. It's great to see urban fantasies bust out of the New York City rut, and the southwest just begs for more stories like this.
