If you look at my past reviews you'll see that I frequently give five stars. To me five stars doesn't mean the book was book was perfect, but that it was well written, engrossing, and there weren't any glaring and continuous writing issues. There was just some things missing from Karma that don't justify a higher rating, which is unfortunate because it had such an interesting premise. The heroine was a little annoying, for starters. She refuses to see any bright side to her situation for a long time despite many people probably wanting to kill to be given the chance she gets and the less than ideal circumstances that we learn surrounded her old life. The male hero, Fate, is too vaguely described, both in terms of his physical appearance (I don't even think the author bothers to tell us his eye color) and his background. The author doesn't do a great job establishing the reasons behind the attraction Karma has to Fate. There's nothing wrong with him, it's just that you don't really see when or why it developed. It's just there. You don't feel it intensely like you do with some books. What kept me reading was the central mystery surrounding Karma's fate and role. That is where the author did a better job. It was pretty intriguing. There was also some interesting takes on concepts like soulmates and fate. So it wasn't all negative. I'll probably finish the series because it did a good enough job at getting me invested in the outcome, but I'm not really dying to read the next book like I could have been if the above issues weren't present.
I liked this book. I would have said I loved this book but for the ending. I read it in one sitting which tells me the story grabbed my attention. I also loved the world building. But the ending came up well before the stroy seemed to have finished (lets say when it finished I expected it to be after they found the man behind the Suit, since the found the Suit about half way through and the rest of the book I had thought would be focused on finding out who that person was). I also did not buy the reason why Karma killed the Suit. ie just because the others might learn that the other side were also trying to recruit her and that throughout her life she had unknowingly used her extra talent to make sure the bad guys got off? Nope not buying it. She never intended to "cheat" the system, if that's what it was. So the reason to me was spurious as was the reason to speak the the Suit alone. Now if she killed him simply becasue he was the one who killed her and she lost it. Yep, that would seem to be a fairly good reason.
All in all, I like the story and so will read the next episode. But I do want a full episode to finish next time and not this half time call that seemed to happen here.
I couldn't put it down. It was funny and entertaining, witty and with suspense thrown in, I can't wait to read what happens next!
