My favorite feature is how the four main characters have flaws/quirks that serve as both strengths and weaknesses and that often put even those on the "same side" at odds with one another. It makes it a more interesting read than your typical YA book. That being said, the Ruachian (i.e. from the alternate universe) characters are pretty one-dimensional, particularly the villains (though the author hints at possible complexity to come)
The main characters are definitely high school students. This was at times annoying but not enough to prevent me as an adult from enjoying the book, and it helped with the realism of the book. More annoying was the occasional moments where one of the high school students would be spontaneously deep in their observations that did not fit with their character development. It seemed more like the author wanted some information given to the reader rather than a natural maturation of the character. There were other mature/deep moments that seemed to naturally develop out of who the characters were and what they went through, but the few that didn't stuck out like a sore thumb.
On a side note, the book required some majored suspension of disbelief regarding how law enforcement responded (or didn't respond) to the teenagers' actions. The author mainly avoids describing this part.
Overall, it was a good quick read that was worth the time to read it, and I will be looking for the next book in the series.
The magic and scifi aspects of the book were well laid out; and even though the book was short, we got a good glimpse into what makes the characters tick.
It was a fast, enjoyable read and does make me want to see what happens next.
It should be mentioned that this is more of a novella than a novel, so it is perfect if you are looking for a weekend read but don't want a huge commitment.
