It was really hard for me to read the first half of this book. I almost gave up reading it. *hides* The reason being is because I really disliked Ella. I know she was angry about certain situations and felt guilty, but I did not like how she handled things.
However, I'm really glad I continued reading because wow! There are some potent truths she learned that really spoke to my heart. She had an extremely touching transformation that opened my eyes to how we can stop hate. Not only that, I went from not being fully invested in her journey, to really wanting her to succeed in what she's called to do.
I was quite surprised how things unfolded concerning One and the Grifters. Both of those situations are what spoke to my heart the most. <3
Overall, a great read in what is sure to be an on edge sci-fi adventure!
It's based in modern times and about a girl, Ella, pulled from regular life and thrust into a secret government "Academy" for super-humans fighting "Grifters" (which are also 'human-like' but creepy looking and way stronger). I enjoyed reading Ella's growth of character throughout the book as she learns to see not only things from her point of view, but realizing there is another side to every story. While she hones her skills, she learns that not everything she originally believed was correct (super vague but I don't want to put any spoilers!).
There is also not an annoying love triangle like every other YA book on the market so that's always a plus!
This book has a female main character, but also equally strong boy characters, so a good book for both genders, and ages young adult on up! The unpredictable plot keeps you on the edge of your seat. It includes all the elements of a great adventure: characters with special abilities, intense battles, suspense, and unraveling secrets in the search for truth.
I’m looking forward to Book 2 coming out in November 2017!
