Will I continue this series? I think so…
The first few chapters of this are very scattered, I just couldn't make sense of anything, and I really wanted to DNF…but I hung in there and slowly, things started clicking together. Not fully together, but enough that I enjoyed the story. By the end, despite the major editing flaws*, I was actually feeling like I might want to explore this world further.
I adored the characters in this book, Lex & Ember...Stein and Ethan, plus many more...the only issue is keeping all of them straight in your head.
Sex Factor: None at all.
*Every chapter in this book is headed with a name whose head you're in and one of the last chapters is labeled wrong, that screwed me all up and I had reread that entire chapter.
