I really like this, I just read the prologue but it was quite good. It catches hold of you and makes you read more just like all great books. I would read more but I'm trying to review lots of peoples books today. The only thing I would change is at the beginning of the prologue you say its your sixteenth birthday, and then like maybe 2 paragraphs later, you say its your eighteenth. Besides that it was fantastic, I'll come back another time to read the rest ;) Great job :) -Kristen ♥

Just got through reading Book I, and all's I can say is - DAMN!

Great job in crafting the story from beginning to end. I especially enjoyed how the POV switched from Ray to Lindsey in the epilogue, tying up loose ends but still keeps us guessing. Bravo!

As an aside, have you ever read Cassandra Clare's 'Mortal Instruments' series? I swear, Ray reminds me of a slightly older (but less cockier) Jace Wayland. You're style varies a bit from hers of course, but in a good way. I've always found Clare to be overblown and kind of pandering with all of the pages she puts between her readers and the actual story. Your style, however, is clipped and precise, with cliffhanger chapters that spur us on!

Having said that, I guess I was hoping to get a better sense of your novel's backstory. As I continued on reading, I found myself consciously questioning the odd missed fact here and there. Ray's father, for instance, where is he? The kind of car Ray drives - is it factory fresh or a clunker? And what does Ray's mother do to make ends meet for the family? Those are a few of the things I felt could have used some shading in.

All in all though, this was a lot of fun to read. Can't wait to move on to Book 2!

Highest Regards, Nathan
