Here are my thoughts on book 1:
The first 13-15% of the book is not great. I had a hard time getting immersed in the story because the only really relatable characters were Alfred and Russell. Evil was relatable at times but often said or did things that didn't make sense to me. Reed was entirely non-sensical-- he did what he did and said what he said but it was impossible to understand the character because it was not clear why he acted as he did. And, regrettably, the "Twilight" parallels were all too obvious. I'm not gonna list them because the similarities are extensive; so, I'll just sum it up with saying that if you read Twilight you will notice and likely be as irritated by the similarities as I was.
That being said, somewhere around 19% the author finds her own voice and hits her stride. From this point onward I stopped noticing and bemoaning my slow progression through the book. It became more difficult to put the book down as I wondered what would happen next and tried to guess what the mysteries of the book entailed. The characters also hit their stride and moved away from bland Twilight-esque archetypes toward something all their own.
The book is a stand-alone book with a well-written conclusion that allows readers to stop there, or opt to pursue their curiosity as to what may happen next. I.e., there is no cliffhanger but there are several incomplete plot lines likely to peak one's curiosity.
In just 1 sentence: it's a slow-starter but stick with it and you'll be glad you did.
But this book really surprised me by how well it was written, the loveable characters you intimately connect with, and the awesome story line that makes you want to buy all the books in the series so you can find out how it ends. It was a delicious and beyond imaginative read. This book is one of those that you want to keep on your shelf along with its entire series and hungrily reread them.
