I would've liked more backstory on Lily. I'm interested to know what kind of person she was before the accident including more about her relationship with Wilhelm and her friendships. Overall, more character development was needed in order to lend believability to how awful her boyfriend and friends treated her after the accident. I also think that Markaza and Lily's friendship was too instantaneous. I was surprised at how easily Lily let the girl take over her life. I felt in Bronya, the two girls got to know each other in a more natural and realistic manner.
The prose is easy to read and flows at a great pace. The descriptions were well done, especially the ones involving Markaza's visions. The end of the book was a nice set-up for the next one and I'm eager to see what happens when all of the gifted girls come together.
Jo Michaels is a good writer but she can't expect us to go on paying for each new character in what is really an on-going story. I will not be buying the third instalment.
Even if these are short novellas, you get hooked and pulled into the story. Jo Michaels is an exceptional writer and puts so much detail and emotion into her world.
