This book was surprisingly addictive.  Once I got into the story it really sucked me in.  I didn’t know what was going to come next and who was going to change next.  The characters were unique but relatable.  Though they had super powers they all still had the flaws of regular people.  In fact, the addition of powers only forces them to choose what road to go down, the good or the bad.  They all had personal struggles with their powers.  This made the characters very relatable.  Overall, the writing and the story will consume you and allow you to relate to the unrelatable.  J.R Mallette just keeps getting better with each book she writes.
