This book for sure get you in from the very first chapter! It has action and romance and it's different. With a
really nice surprise at the end!

For starters to talk about the book in general...i liked the writing. It was simple in a way that you could read
and read without being bored or tired. The story is also placed in our world, and you see ordinary things
around and as a result you get more into it. From situations, places or people, the world feels close to you.
Even the parts of it, you probably haven't see in your life (gangs and stuff).
The story in general is original. It might at some point, use a concept seen before (no worries..no world
destruction or a prophecy) but it's used in a totally new way and i loved it.

The characters, even the mean ones, are all so well created you just can't dislike them. You are into "i want
to know more of why they are like that" than "oh what a bitch!". They all have their history, and it's nice to get
to know it more from the conversations with the other chars than just a simple re-telling into a paragraph at
some point. In every chapter, you learn one more little thing.

There were two things i didn't enjoy much. Firstly, was non-Sydney/Abithica parts. I wasn't really interested
in them. I would prefer if the whole thing was from Sydney's POV only. And secondly, as i said at the start it
has a surprise at the end. Unfortunately, cause of some small hints i managed to see it. Once again, i would
prefer no hints for a more excited discovery on what's going on at the end.

Conclusion it's a different and light read. Small book too. It would be nice for a travel or a fast-read at the
beach. You get the point XD
