The story is told in an intelligent, action driven style with twists, turns and incredible emotional drama. The story has elements of teen romance which complements the overall theme as it adds to the story, not detracts. The situations that the main characters, Libby and Milo, find themselves in are incomprehensible to most people and yet Gladden is able to bring down to earth reality around the events, revealing realistic reactions, feelings and emotions from her characters that increases the reader's desire to believe the unbelievable.
When I was 75% into the book, I wondered to myself how would Inquest end, knowing that this is the first in the Destroyer Trilogy series. Let's just say, I was not disappointed as many answers were revealed that satisfied my "need to know" but there were enough left unanswered to tempt readers to read the next book in the series. A well written novel especially for teens, young adults and anyone who enjoys mythical and mystical, urban fantasy thrillers.
I give Inquest: Book One of The Destroyer Trilogy 4.5/5 stars
Recommend to others: Most definitely a great page turner and a great read.
Libby is unique because she's known since a very young age what her talents are and that she's the Destroyer. The book starts with the day of her Inquest and we see how she loses everyone in her life at once since all of society is taught to fear and despise the Destroyer.
This was a nice set-up book to the world and really the rest of the story that will be told. When dealing with a trilogy, especially one where each book is relatively short, you know that the first one won't really get into the meat and potatoes of the plot because then what would the other books talk about? So we are introduced to characters and they continue to remain a mystery to us as Libby learns about each one herself.
I liked this book for what it is and the plot is interesting enough that I want to continue reading. This first book was a free read from Amazon, which I think really works because it was good enough to make me purchase Book 2.
There are times when I get really frustrated with Libby and Milo, but then I have to remember that they are 16. The only thing that I think is unnecessary is the multiple love triangles going on. I'm almost through Book 2 and only now do I really see what the author may be trying to get at, but it's also brings home my frustration with Libby. For some reason, I don't have much patience with her. A part of me understands that she's only 16 and that she went through some traumatizing events. But her continual clinging to Milo kind of bugs me.
