On the surface, it's a splashy "shoot 'em-up, beat 'em-up," but a layer below that is an interesting pyschological character premise.
This is a fun read that could appeal to fans of everything from "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" to more hi-stakes, complex works by Dale Brown and Tom Clancy.
The only reason it didn't get a five star rating from me is because in my opinion the pacing could have been smoother. Other than that it was a very enjoyable read!
Striking is the Alias vibe - probably because the protagonist is quite young for a recruited spy which is not a bad thing, mind you! It worked in Alias and it definitely works here.
Thomas Galvin is no lazy author. He did his homework, you realize that from the moment you read the first pages. Everything is very thoroughly researched and feels authentic. Throw in some cultural references and you even have to laugh a couple of times even though the atmosphere is really dark and intense.
For someone who has always been fascinated by Psychology, I was very much enjoying the protagonist's split personality. 'Two sides of the same coin' describes her best.
However, I didn't only like the protagonist. Every other character being introduced is round and has found a place in my heart - even the villain (xD)
I try to keep this spoiler-free so I'll just say that the interesting twist at the end definitely makes me crave the sequel!
