The story takes the reader on an emotional, heart-pounding ride as twenty-something clothing designer Nicole uncovers a world she never thought could exist. When I began reading No Reflection, I didn't know the book's genre or content. Consequently, during the first few chapters of the story, I become so horrified that I wanted throw the book out the window to erase the grotesque images imprinted on my mind. At the same time, I had and insatiable desire to keep reading. Page after page I became more invested as Nicole explored the limits of her capabilities, taking control of her life in the face of great danger. Additionally, though the story follows the usual structure of a reluctant heroine and her ragtag team of cohorts, the setting and action make No Reflection truly unique. I've been to many of the book's locations and met the types of people described, but somehow I experience them more vividly through the text than in everyday life.
This book is a page-turner from start to finish and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good story, wants a good scare, and can't wait for more.
All in all, I liked this book. The storyline for me was a little bit odd, but not in a bad way. My main complaint is that the paranormal aspect felt a little tagged on. It wasn't really necessary in the context of this book; I would have just as easily believed that the killer was a messed up human with a very messed up hobby. I do think, however, that this book is set up for a more paranormal immersed second book. If the intention was to ease the reader into out-of-the-norm ideas, just as the ideas are introduced to Nicole, I'm okay with it. If not, well...it could have been handled better.
The characters were generally likeable, though awkward at times. They all seemed to be their own people, which sounds like a strange compliment but really is meant as one. I'm interested to see how the relationships grow throughout the course of the series, to see if the characters become less of a smattering of islands and more connected as the adventure unfolds.
The was definitely a different sort of read for me because, while I read a lot of paranormal literature, this was one of the few books that truly focused (like a laser beam...) on the grotesque nature of all things evil. There was blood, guts, dirt, and whatever else one might find in the tunnels beneath NYC. It was explained in such fine detail that I could feel the filth under my nails and found myself choking at the smell. As someone who has never really lived in a city (and would have no idea of these intricacies), I really appreciate Hughes' ability to put me in the space.
No Reflections is full of fun "Easter eggs," fantastic imagery, and a film-noir type plot. It's a quick read, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in sci-fi, paranormal, and horror, but a strong stomach is a must!
We follow the actions of protagonist Nicole Du Pond, a young clothing designer who is pulled into the search for a serial killer when she becomes his next target. Hughes details the mental and physical trauma Nicole endures as she discovers that not only is she being stalked by a sociopath, but he may not be entirely human. Thus begins the exploration into a world that Nicole discovers to be bigger and darker than she could have imagined.
Aside from a few structural flaws, the prose is well crafted. Hughes paints his environments with strong detail without being overbearing. The reader is given a clear path to follow but allowed to fill in the minute details for himself. In contrast, he takes full control over tension-filled scenes to embellish feelings of dread and helplessness. The story really comes alive when Nicole and others are (frequently) in danger.
The book was well paced and not too lengthy,(I was able to read it over a few days). Very exciting and often engaging, I definitely enjoyed my time with No Reflection.
