    Live To Read

    This book is perfect for those who enjoy mythology. The book starts out by almost shocking the reader. The first chapter lulls the reader into a sense of security until, about halfway through, the action breaks in and chaos begins. Readers don't have to worry about the violence too much-there isn't that much gore...it is at the right level for the reader to appreciate the scene without wanting to wash his/her hands. The book's action takes off from there.



    The characters were nice to read about. Kaia, the main character, was very humble and calm. She surprises the reader with both her resilience and her ability not to mourn for her mother and friends...this is a little odd and may make it slightly hard for the reader to connect to Kaia right away. Reeze, the enigma and other survivor of the fire, is just as calm and stoic. These two characters will keep the reader occupied during the novel, however, they could have had more fire. It is slightly difficult to get into the characters' heads as well, they don't really project their thoughts to the reader...at times, it is almost as if the reader is an observer.



    The writing is smooth and detailed, the reader will be able to picture the scenes taking place. The mythology ties in perfectly to the plot. This book is recommended for teens/young adults who enjoy young adult fiction combined with mythology.
