I just finished the book last night and couldn't sleep because I kept thinking about it! This is a hidden gem of a novel and I absolutely loved it.
What I loved: I really liked the protagonist Jade, who was strong and knew what she wanted. I loved the Skorplings, I could totally picture them in my head and wish I had one as a pet/friend! I was mesmerized by the worlds that Ms. Savage created- the domes and the politics between them were fascinating. And she does have a way with words when it comes to food and clothing and scenery. My mouth was watering in several places and I had to go grab something to munch on. I also wanted to possess the dress made of crystals for my own! One of my favorite characters was Ralston, so I was excited to see he will be back for the next installment. The whole idea of Transcenders and if they do or don't mess with the fabric/track of time is really interesting and I hope we'll get a lot more into that in the next book. I loved the idea of parallel worlds and being able to travel to other ones. The one thing that I wonder will ever be dealt with is... what about the other Jade? What happened to her? and why is it that she can go back to her time without anyone noticing whereas, the hints in the cliffhanger suggest that she has been missed in Domerica.
Small comment of what I didn't like, which obviously did not detract from the stars given above... Savage does have a habit of inserting "dude" or mentioning "Brad Pitt" etc. when she wants Jade to have a faux pas. I think if she just talks naturally without those phrases, it is quite clear she talks differently from the other characters.
I hope everyone gets to take a look at this book. Ms. Savage has an amazing imagination and put it together really well in this first installment. I look forward to reading the next book and will look out for it!
Jaden is a bit snarky and is thrust into a parallel world where she learns here she is a reigning princess. While she's been told this was an galactic error that could cause unknown changes in destiny, she finds (of course) love ...! She struggles with her alternate life and must decide when the time comes, if she will return to "her" own life. Fun story to follow and worth the read.
Nevertheless, Vicky Savage is phenomenal at bringing worlds alive. I was so engrossed in this world that she built that I couldn't put it down. The people, their lives, and their world seems to be breathing at your fingertips.
I can't wait to read more about this world that Vicky Savage has created I found it intriguing and her imagination to be a wonderful place to visit.
I became a bit frustrated with Jaden’s immaturity and use of colloquialisms and slang, but am hoping she has matured a bit in the sequel.
As for the romance part itself, I felt it was a bit rushed here and there. Didn't ring totally credible at times. It just feels too abrupt when all the love talk starts. All it needs is a few added sentences to slow it down a bit and draw the readers in. Allow the characters a bit more of self-doubt and wonderment about those overwhelming feelings so the romance takes on a more natural pace.
All that said...I can't wait to start digging into the sequel!
