The main character Rayne, is a high school senior who is badly treated by almost everyone for being different. Growing up without feeling loved and supported by her parents, she feels ashamed, unwanted, and later betrayed. So many times during this story I wanted to hug and comfort her. I'm glad Rayne had a few people who believed in her and truly cared about her for who she really is. She deserved far better, if they only gave her a chance.
Despite this cruelty and adversity, Rayne proved to be strong and determined to make her way in this world. I greatly admire her for that. I hope she finds the answers she is looking for, but I have a feeling she will gain so much more.
The story is engaging and the main character relatable. It only took me two days from start to finish because I could not put it down. I am excited to begin the next in the series, I cannot wait to discover why Rayne has so much happen to her and what of the crazy discovery she makes at the very end of this book.
Screaming applause for this one!
I'm just thrilled with this book! I waffled between 4 or 5 stars, but ultimately decided 4 stars was too few to properly express how much I enjoyed this book--so 5 stars, it is! I'd say the only thing I wasn't IN LOVE with was the cover; I felt it a bit too amateur-ish for such a great book. Also, it did nothing to show what the book would ultimately be about.
That said, the book itself was great. The writing style (dialogue, specifically) took a bit of adjusting for me, but once I was used to it, I was fine with it and completely understood the necessity of such rigid dialogue. It fit with the fact that these people were a different--more advanced--species. Homo praestans, not homo sapiens.
I really enjoyed the plot. Although, I had hoped we would learn a bit more about what's going on with Rayne and how it would be "used" by others. We didn't really learn anything about what will happen in the future until the last 5% of the book, and even then, it wasn't much. I had hoped to learn more about the Capitolium. Although, the bit with the imaginary surface in the sky definitely has me intrigued! Without getting too much into it and having to tag my sentence as a spoiler, I had wondered a bit about "ancient" Earth (our current time). I'm glad we got a little teaser there.
I liked Rayne a lot. She was strong, but not unbelievably so. She was vulnerable, but not pathetic. She was special, but still ostracized. The author wrote her in a way that didn't make us want to kill her or roll our eyes every other page. I found Rafe to be quite boring, so that was a bit of a disappointment. I was actually most interested in Jhonis and had hoped to see a bit of character growth there.
In any case, I enjoyed this book quite a lot and am glad I got the chance to read it. I'll definitely be checking out book 2!
