This book is only 170 pages and it is attempting to do a lot in those 170 pages. The author is setting up the world building. She is introducing all the characters. She is giving us a villain and a mystery to be solved. She is also giving us a romance for our main characters. It is a lot to accomplish in just a few pages. While in some respects if fails, in the most important aspect, she succeeded. Simply put, I want to read more.

I enjoyed watching this story unfold. Mimi is such a vibrant character and such a contrast to passionate but closed off Calix. Calix screws up near the end and personally, I wouldn’t have given him another chance but thankfully this was a romance and there was a HEA.
I didn’t finish this book. It is part of the series so I tried really hard to finish. I even picked it up again after putting is aside and got 70% done but I just couldn’t make myself finish it.
Our blog was taken over once again by our Jr. bloggers for a quick review of a Young Adult adventure.

It was one of the few times that […]

This is my last SPI novel. It has lost the fun of the first novella and novel but never transitioned to a more serious urban fantasy. The whole series just flopped.
I like the O’Brien family. It is an interesting group of characters. This series is linked to her other contemporary series, Shattered Past. Just like Shattered Past, this first book features an abusive authority figure.
A captivating set of characters. This is the last novel in the series but it stands on its own. Definitely worth a read.
This was a quick but enjoyable novella. It also proves that maybe I was too quick to judge an author over one story.
