"It’s time to connect the stars in my constellation."
- no world building. none. zilch. zero. nil. nada. its a contemporary story with a couple of sentences thrown in to hint at a fantasy aspect, but with no explanations, no details, no background. it makes no sense whatsoever.
- cliché after cliché after cliché. such a major eye roll. especially with the dialogue, which is unfortunate because AS narratives arent descriptive and tend to be heavy on the dialogue.
- poor characterisation. dull, boring, two dimensional, easily forgettable narrators. i honestly kept mixing the two brothers up each time the POV shifted.

20 pgs: THIS BOOK ROCKS MY SOCKS.
The strongest power above all is a living heart. Humanity is what makes heroes, not powers. The strongest power is humanity.Twins Emil and Brighton did everything together but now that they're approaching the end of senior year, all Brighton can think about is growing his YouTube channel and going to college.
I may not be throwing fire, but I'm just as much a hero as anyone else.And just when his latest video kind of flops, he discovers that his very own brother, Emil, is among the superhumans.
I can’t know who I want to be when I’m still struggling with who I am.Well, Brighton can fix that. Hopefully in time to prevent the end of the world.
She lands and kicks me in the ribs so hard, like I owe her money or something.
In no time, the fire is spreading. I brave through the gray and gold flames. Iris is running behind me, and Altas flies above. I shout for Atlas to get Brighton and Prudencia out of here. I can't believe I'm out here giving instructions, but time is wasting. The higher I get up the steps, the more my rib cage aches.
I tell him I'm sorry for his loss, even though it's too many years too late.
The Blood Casters have got me straight scared with how still they are.
[…] so I got to be quick with fire if he comes for me.
