My Thoughts

 

First Impressions:  The title and the cover are super awesome…and the synopsis is too.  I have a thing for parallel universes…

 

This didn't exactly live up to my first impressions.  While mostly entertaining, you just have to not think too deeply about it all, otherwise it's sort of unbelievable or just off kilter-ish.   The science of it wasn't always easy to follow, but I comprehended well enough most of the time.  The Nox…those monsters were freaky crazy, maybe too crazy…

 

 

The narration wasn't bad it's just narrated by the same girl as The Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray and it threw me off because they have similar plot lines.

Sex Factor:  While mentioned, there is no actual explicit sex going on.
