~ Review by Jessica ~
I was excited to read this book as soon as I saw it. The cover grabbed my attention, and the synopsis hooked me immediately. My favorite thing about the story, was that it started off with a bang and kept up that fast pace the whole time. I never felt bored, and it kept me reading well into the night.
The plot was good, but I did think that some of the explanations were flimsy. Maybe things will be expounded upon further in future books, but I found myself wanting more solid reasons for some of the things that happened.
I also felt that some of the decisions the characters made didn’t make sense to me. I think some more character development would have helped. I didn’t always understand why people did what they did. I also wasn’t completely happy with the romantic elements. I couldn’t really bring myself to care who Allie ended up with, and I definitely didn’t feel any romantic tension. That being said, there was some great writing in it. Holly obviously has talent as a writer. I definitely enjoyed the book, and I want to read the next one. It’s a great story.
