Overall, I rated this book 3 stars because the story is unique and one that I would continue to read to find out what happens to the characters and to learn more about the Shattered Realms.
I wasn't sure what to expect but it wasn't what I got and I enjoyed it quite a bit. It's hard to explain without spoiling the book so I won't. It's clean and there is some mild language. Think of a world on 2 sides of one coin. That is the best I can describe it without too !much detail although there were times I was confused by the alternate worlds. While it didn't end on a cliffhanger, the story is definitely not done. I look forward to reading the rest of the story. Spoiler-ish questions below...
I hope to learn more about Hunter and his background. He is a prince but not this king's son? Who are his family? If nothing regenerates then how is he possible and is there hope in his "secret?" What is life like in the dying lands? Why do the people change? Lots of questions that in all the action never got answered.
The concept of this book is very interesting. Two worlds depending on the other to survive with two people caught in the middle. There were parts I really liked and then it would become confusing. There is a lot that is alluded to that I guess you need to read the next book to understand but I'm not sure if I am looking forward to it or not. There's a cliffhanger at the end and I don't know that I care to see what's at the bottom of the ravine or if I am content to hang out on the cliff and think about the journey there and wonder how I got there. If part 2 is free I would consider learning what unfolds, otherwise I'm content to have just read the 1st one.
PS -- LOVE the cover!!!!!!
This is my first book by Melissa Wright. The cover is amazing and fit the story perfectly. I gobbled this up in one sitting and even ordered pizza so I didn't have to stop and cook. THAT is saying a lot! So not only did I enjoy the book but the kids reaped the benefits too.
It starts with monsters entering our world through the veil when it breaks. Now I usually don't read much of the new adult age because authors usually make characters so wishy washy and whiny. Mackenzie was neither of these. She was strong and self sacrificing and even tried to help a stranger from the monsters. That is where the ever mysterious Hunter came in.I can't tell you much about him without spoiling anything but I will tell you that I had sympathy for everyone in the story.
This was well worth the read and I'm desperate for the next in the series. Until then I will check out the authors' other series The Frey Saga and The Descendants.
