When I first read the description of this book, I thought, ehh, not my usual type of book, but for variety's sake, I'll try it. I did not have high expectations. But as I started reading about Hailey, I very quickly identified with her. She very well could have been me (minus the chinchilla cheese making job)! So with that, I was sucked into the story and loved every word.
Besides the very bookish Hailey, we also have some other amazing characters that make the story just take on a life of its own. To start with, Sebastian, who is for the most part, just a voice throughout the entire book, is intelligent, funny and one tough guy, Alex is smart, handsome, and has a quiet gentleness about him that is appealing.
My only complaint with the book was literally the last page. EVERYTHING in the book was tied up, the bad guys caught, all the wrongs righted, happily ever after. Then you read the last page. The author threw in a non-ending so that she had a place to pick up the story for her next book. All well and good, but it feels more like an afterthought. She could have easily bended it into the last chapter so it didn't leave you thinking "what the heck just happened???"
Despite the shoddy last page, the story was amazing. I loved every second of it and will definitely be reading the next book. Just goes to show ya, give something new a chance because you never know if you will find a new favorite book.
The heroine's job milking chinchillas (for gourmet cheese): had I not read that a UK company sells ice cream made of human breast milk, I'd have tossed the book on the spot. As it is, the chinchilla thing sounds so far fetched, I almost wish it hadn't been in this novel. Then again, some things are so unbelievable, they could only have happened in real life, or no author would have thought of it. (Corollary: some scenes are so surreal, they could only have come from the author's REM-sleep dreams. Time after time, authors have told me I guessed right on that.)
I wanted to review this for Perihelion Science Fiction ezine, but the science lurched off into the realm of fantasy, and Perihelion is devoted to *hard science fiction* with no YA, no sorcery.
The story is fun and engaging. Fans of women's fiction, fantasy, and paranormal should appreciate it. Hard-core science fiction fans, not so much.
The plot moves quickly, the story's pacing never leaves you feeling bored. The characters are well-developed. Not many grammatical errors.
Overall, an enjoyable read.
...Until the end. Once the heroes defeat the villain, the heroine uncovers a unique dilemma in her life, but instead of exploring it, the story just stops. The story was strong enough by itself to entice the reader toward a sequel; unfortunately, the author didn't trust her material enough or her readers to allow a more natural ending to occur and segue into the sequel rather than just tacking on a new problem to resolve in the next installment.
