With parallel storylines, intertwined familial links, and two very separate styles of life, you quickly get caught up in the lives of the characters. It's good to sometimes be thrown off the scent, to have your faith in a character be tossed about like luggage on a turbulent plane. Don't count on trusting anyone in this story, until you get to the end!!
I really enjoyed this book, and the story, and the twists and turns.
The author combines reality with science fiction in this story of a young girl choosing her own destiny despite the efforts of her elders, some selfish and some for what they consider her benefit. Although the characters are convincing and well-developed, the storyline gets bogged down with repetition, exposition, and melodrama. The reader doesn't need a whole paragraph that includes the line: "He no longer tried to stop the stream of feelings and let them flow from his body, finally releasing him from the prison in which he had been trapped" to say that he sobbed for joy.
J. Meverington's narration refers many times to the story's alternate world as "weird" and its people weirdos, but I think the idea is beautiful and hope to see other stories about it.
Bad guys and good guys do blur a little in the book and I was questioning what was going on a couple times? And what I knew....
The characters were memorable, and weren't too many which meant the storyline was easy to follow. (Damien was my favourite.)
Each character was visited regularly during the story so i always knew what each charater was doing.
The dialogue was sharp; i never once had to re-read anything to understand it. :-)
All in all, an evenly paced mystery which i read in quick-time, and look forward to the sequel.
