I feel like there could be potential for this to be a good book (which is why I'm leaving a review), but getting there is rather tortuous. It's almost like reading a draft. The story doesn't flow. I mean it kind of makes sense from a narrative point of view, but I'm not sure if it's the odd dialogue or the excessive visual details or what, but after Leah, the characters are awkward for me. Nathan is supposed to be the hero, but he just kind of comes off as a bit of a brat thus far. There is a disconnect between what is happening and his reactions to it. I mean if I were having nightmares about a girl and find out they were real, I'd be freaked. But you don't get that in the story. I mean, Nathan is a poor orphan who lives with his loving grandfather who is a caretaker for a rich family. There are a lot of things that the author could have done to make him more relatable, but it just gets lost in the background. For me, a good book makes you feel like you are inside the characters- I go through what they go through- I feel their pain and the details are just that- details. I'm not sure if the author was trying to do too many perspectives at once, or what, but I want to feel what Nathan is feeling, not just be aware of it.
With a good book, getting to the end is effortless- like flying. For me, getting to the end of this one is more like plodding. And just to be clear- flying is way more fun.
The majority of young adult novels i've either read, or glanced through, seem very superficial. Twilight being a prime example of this. The Main character in Legend of the Firewalker is NOT a manic depressive pair of pants that anyone with little to zero self esteem can slip into.
Give this book a try! From the very beginning you're going to get thrown into scenes that are down right creepy. Mr. Bevil seems to enjoy eliciting some of our instinctive fears of the dark, and the unknown.
I'm looking forward to the sequel!
