on Sep. 13, 2012 :
What a great ride! This has the makings of a wonderful series. Well written, a sympathetic lead character that is a young woman thrust into a world she only ever read about, and even then it was a world of fantasy. But apparently it isn't fantasy, it is real - too real at times as she tries to keep pace with the barrage of changes she must successfully navigate to stay alive.
Bryn is something of a loner and a wallflower, or so she thinks. But circumstances beyond her control teach her that she's a whole lot stronger than she ever imagined. And her strength isn't solely physical, which is a darned good thing, as she will have to use her other powers to ensure her survival as well as the survival of her family - past and present.
The characters here still need more fleshing out, but that seems to be progressing with the story. And this story is a wonderful mix of fact and fiction unlike any other I've yet to come across (and my list of books on Goodreads represents probably one-thirtieth or less of all the books I've been lucky enough to read). So it is with great enjoyment that I read this fantastical creation of Ms. Ayer's. I'm grateful to have the next book in the series next up in my que, and sad to know that i'll have to wait until sometime near March of 2013 for the next, and quite possibly final, installment.
This book is full of fun, fear, adventure, the whole emotional gamut - and next to impossible to put down!
