I enjoyed the relationship between Tess and her sister. It was realistic in that there are things you don’t always agree on with your sisters (or other females in your life), but you cherish the relationship and care for them just the same. Tess wanted the best for her sister even if her sister couldn’t see what was best for her on her own. That caring, despite the differences (and somewhat because of those differences), helped you truly believe Tess was interested in helping her sister, Bethany, in the situation she landed in.
I also appreciated the relationship with Angie, Tess’s friend and coworker. There were just good, positive female relationships in this story, and you don’t see much of that these days.
It is a very action-oriented, superhero story, which I liked immensely and I’m not actually a superhero kind of reader. The story was interesting and fast paced. I wanted to know what would happen next not only in the budding romance but in the search for answers, as well.
Overall, I simply think this is a well-written and entertaining story. I read almost all of this book in one sitting. I stopped once and started again, but once I picked it up the second time, I finished it off in one night. I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
Once Tess is back home she discovers there have been disappearances, young woman about her age have been going missing and rumors about the white slave market going on. She also discovers there is a weird side effect to the Solstice Syndrome. Tess' can absorb different materials and change her hands into that material. Tess then discovers that her hometown has it's own vigilante and the only way this guy could move like that is if he was like her, they aren't only ones people have been popping up all over the globe with superpowers and acting the part too. Tess becomes obsessed with the vigilante known as The Fox. Tess steps up her game when her sister goes missing and she's determined to find her no matter what to the point she joins forces with The Fox to rescue her sister and stop the white slavery ring.
I love Tess! oh boy do I really love that geeky, awkward, artistic Tess, and the fact that she becomes best friends with a trekkie is a big bonus. Reed, oh heart throb, what is there that I don't like about him? Nothing he borders on perfect. Was I the only one freaked out that her home town was called Weyland? I just kept thinking androids, I mean synthetic humans, were going to pop up somewhere, 'cause you know Weyland/Yutani from Aliens.... anyways. I would love to see the stories of other Solstice Survivors, if there is going to be a full series, but if it stays with Tess and The Fox that's awesome too. It's kind of like Kick*ss, except with real superpowers. Overall, this book was a very big win for me, I absolutely loved it, everything about it.
The plot was interesting and the way the main characters reacted when they found out about their superpowers seemed realistic to me. I liked the fact that they didn’t suddenly transformed into the ultimate warriors. Instead, it took them some time until they gained confidence in their abilities and were able to form a strategy on how to best use them against their enemies.
Tess, with her love for comics, was an intriguing heroine. Her personality was strong and she wasn’t someone who waited to be rescued, but chose to take action herself. I liked the fact that she wasn’t there to be saved by The Fox, but instead she was there to work together with him. She even had some humor that was much needed for a person like her who was going through so much.
“I don’t know how to handle this, my brain informed me. Then it stepped out for a cup of coffee to mull things over, leaving me to black out and smash my face into my bathroom counter.”
This book was more focused on the action, but I liked what I saw from the romance between Tess and her love interest. The main characters had a nice chemistry and they didn’t focus too much on each other’s physical appearance, like I’ve seen in many other romance stories.
I also appreciated the fact that there was no drama between them. The author didn’t keep them apart or make them flirt and sleep with other people just to create tension and fill more pages. I like that they stayed devoted to each other and they had a nice connection.
This is only the second book that I read from this author, but I am slowly becoming a fan.
