This was one book which was so difficult to get into and the one which was so difficult to get out of. The story started with scenes so disjointed that I was fragmented in my view to continue to read further on not. But I am glad I stuck to my determination of getting past the mental blocks. The last few pages captured my imagination in ways I could never have anticipated.
My first book by author Mitzi C had me totally awed with the events unfolding of the past and the future of the two main characters Kandi and Juan. One pure being whose blood was both poison and cure and the other a hybrid who had survived the poison.
This was a true sci-fi with a thin sliver of fantasy thriller where Mitzi has combined the primitive natural forces which generally govern the people into the powers which govern both the beings and humanity. I found my pulse spiking at the high rising drama which unfurled in front of me. The powers in both Kandi and Juan had me literally clapping my hands. And hitting my head!! Why didn’t they use their powers to escape?!! Sheesh!!
So that led to my niggles, the book did not grip from the get go. I had to force my brain to read which was not a good sign. I didn’t really like both the main characters. The latter one third worked well, and I felt that this book 1 of the series had so much potential to be something more than what it was. It just missed the mark in the first half.
Overall an enjoyable read in the last few chapters.
I received a copy of the book from the author, and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
My rating : 3 stars
