*I received this through a Goodreads ARR in exchange for an honest review.*
When I first read the summary I had the impression that this books was going to be two things: 1-A very unique and intriguing story. 2-A paranormal book. Turns out that's it was intriguing but not paranormal.
The book not being paranormal was a good and a bad thing. On one hand, it's a relief that there's a book out there with really interesting content that has an explanation (or not quite). So it was more science fiction than anything. The bad thing was, some of it came out as unrealistic to be true.
One of the things that bugged me is that I didn't get the answers to a lot of questions I had from the very beginning.
Zara or Zip is nothing if not realistic. She acts like a normal teenager-and can act a bit stupid sometimes, but don't we all?-and helps Kieran get through his ordeal at the same time without turning into Miss-Super-Knowledgeable-Even-In-Matters-I've-Never-Heard-About.
Kieran is one of the sweetest guys ever. He's never had a normal life and that shows on him. Plus, he never pretends to be normal when he knows he's not.
Kayla is one of those supporting characters who you know has potential. I liked her a lot, sometimes more than Zip herself. I hope we get to see more of her in the second book.
This is a light read believe it or not, and I hope I'll get my answers in the second book, which I'm definitely going to read.
