3.5 stars. I thought this was well-written, and generally an entertaining ride. A bit redundant, though, especially in the beginning as Alex is first realizing his situation.

It didn't wrap up very neatly, which was maybe necessary, but still disappointing. A lot of characters that interested me were just dropped flat, never to be seen again. Meanwhile, a cheesy, overly convenient explainer-type character, who I didn't care for at all, took up quite a bit of the second half of the book. I think I would have preferred the story without him.

I would read more from this author. Especially if he turns out more stand-alones of this quality. Any YA author who can write fantasy/sci-fi/supernatural anything NOT in the form of a series gets my love.
