***I was asked to do an honest review of this book*** there are NO SPOILERS in this review! :)

Charlay Marie has done a phenomenal job with this scifi-mystery-romance novel, and she has left me craving more. She deals with real topics such as depression and abuse, but at the same time, keeps it whimsical and action-packed.

I had no trouble getting into the story of Blue City. The action kicks off right away, and there is a lot to visualize as Jen gets swept away into a crazy futuristic adventure. Things flow pretty smoothly as far as the story goes, but the omniscient point of view threw me off as it dodged around through the minds of different characters without a whole lot of rhyme or reason. I am really curious to see where the story will go next, and I think if the POV gets ironed out in the next book I will b ...more
