This novel was a bit of a hit and a miss for me. It started out well by exploring Theo, his ability, and his world that is similar yet different from ours. I was pleased that Dakin took the twists that he did in regards to Theo's world, but in the beginning, there were so many parts that confused me. In this section of the novel, I personally needed more explanation. However, once the novel kicks into gear, everything starts to become much clearer for the reader. And Theo's world become much more fleshed out.Despite this small misstep, I really enjoyed the novel. Dakin has a lovely ability to blend in unexpected twists and turns, which keeps me on the edge of my seat. The pacing was fantastic. There are very few down times within the novel and with the added mysteries to uncover, the reader is sure to be dying to figure out what will happen next. Overall, this novel is a wonderful to start to a new series, and I cannot wait to see what happens next.
