What I wasn't too fond of is actually same things that I didnt care for in Phobic- the romance! The females lose their heads around men. They are teenagers who are completely willing to give up everything for "love" . Everly and Nikolay's romance felt a bit forced (in the way at times) and honestly I can see why she's attracted to him; why is he so in love with her that he changes his whole life's path ?
As I do not usually read horror/supernatural books I can't fairly compare it on an originality level, but I think this was a pretty clever book as far as the whole magic system goes. While it was cleverly put together, it was also pretty confusing, which is why I didn't give five stars. The explanations were rushed and usually delivered via one character explaining it to another, which seemed like the author leaned a bit much on telling vs. showing. On the other hand Cortney is a superb author, so I found it a little ooc compared to other books of hers that I've read.
The characters were interesting. I liked how the love interest had a lot of aspects that at first glance are usually ascribed to bad guys--and I mean villains, not likable bad boys. It added to the mystique, because he unfolded pretty quickly into a fine guy. The main character was on the better side of typical--not too immature and not too stupid (though she had her moments, but nobody's perfect and it had to drive the story forward). I do wish the romance had been slower in its development. It almost seemed like they were obligated to fall in love because of the circumstances rather than falling in love for who they were. The secondary characters were all various good supporters, each with their own quirks and stories. Quite a few of them were on the juicier side of interesting, which is excellent because most plot-driven books like this one fall short on dimensional characters.
This book is richly written, with an extremely vivid setting and mood. I really felt like I was there with the characters, which is saying something since they were traveling through portals and time and such. And, if you like this kind of thing, I kind of had to shake off the creepy scary feeling whenever I paused reading. It really gets under your skin. As far as supernatural happenings go, this book is very believable.
If you love mystery, horror, suspense, action, romance, and magic, this is the book for you. As always, Cortney's poetic prose beautifully draws the scenes to life. Don't worry about cliffhangers here, either.
Delve into the magic of the Forbidden Doors series with INTRINSIC!
