A book can have text so stylised that it comes off a as gimmicky, or it can actually be something that makes reading it a more novel experience. In this case, my impression of it was more of the former but it turned out not to be such a bad read at all.
The main character, Cass, wasn't interesting. Only marginally less boring was her, ah, collaborator, Max-Ernest. But the villains were creepy, man. The whole evil plot thingy and riddles were kinda reminiscent of 'The Mysterious Benedict Society'. I recommend that series if you'd enjoyed this one.
Oh, and, I absolutely have to mention this: Owen is WAY cool. In spite of only having like three major appearances!
I plan on reading the next books in the series.(less)
