The first half of the book starts out strong but then dwells a bit too long on the team's interpersonal relationships. I almost put it down which would have been a mistake in hindsight.
I'm torn on the multiple point of views. It was helpful spending time in each character's story, but it also was a little hard to keep track of. I did appreciate the convention of naming the chapter after three point of view character.
I loved the letter to the reader Ms. Williams includes at the end.
I will definitely be buying the sequel.
I loved getting to know Ronnie better (made me want to reread the Meg Mitchell book, especially his parts) and seeing him and his teammates slowly figure out their armors. Totally looking forward to seeing the guys unlock more and more of the suits' powers in future installments.
I adored this book start to finish. The characters, the setting, the dialogue, the action, the FEELINGS. Easily made it to my faves list. I tend to be a sucker for found family anyway, but let me tell you, I would fight bears for these wonderful dumb boys.
In conclusion: Read this, you'll feel better.
Honestly, it's probably a 3, not a 4, but since Amazon considers 3 a 'negative' rating, I gave it a four.
This is definately an homage to the magical transfromation/magical girl tv shows from the 90's and it took me back to my childhood.
I liked the characters, and it's clear to see how they can grow. The characters seem a little underpowered and the world building could use a little more depth.
The armor and powers are cool and while they could also use a little more detail, it certainly fires up the imagination.
The plot is engaging, it makes logical sense, and it has a satisfying conclusion.
This read more like a book 2 than a book 1, it references constantly to events that happened previously, enough that I started to double check the book number.
All in all, it's an enjoyable read and I would quite happily read the next book.
