    Rating: House/Well, a paranormal with lots of suspense

    This and more reviews at The Book Bar.co

    Honestly, I was getting a little worried when I was at 40% and wondering when we were going to be "let in" on what in the world was going on with this book. I love LOVE Lindy Zart and her writing and this is the first 'paranormal' from her that I have read. The suspense Zart creates in the first 40% is gripping and you can't put it down because you're dying to know what everyone surrounding the main character, Honor, seems to already know.

    Honor (*awesome character name alert*) witnesses a terrifying incident involving a fellow classmate and you think maybe she has a morbid, overactive imagination. Her suspicions are confirmed when men in suites come after her.

    The introduction to the book is all from Honor's perspective. We learn a little about her and her background but within a couple days, everything is questioned. Who was her father, really? What about her mom and sister? What does the future hold for her?

    Honor doesn't really take comfort in the fact that fellow classmates are also in the same situation and seem to be more aware of what's to happen to them. Ryder, a boy she thought was harassing her for fun and a chance at a date, turns out to be one of them and Honor is torn between missing the boy that constantly hit on her and the man-child that is willing to segregate the UD's & the UDK's.

    Having to adjust to her new life, Honor tries to remain stoic and unaffected but she needs a friend. Someone that can provide comfort. The man who brought her in and changed her small world seems to be cracking his 'tough guy' exterior whenever he's around her. I love the Nealon character and I feel the emotional connection these two are making even if they don't want to. I don't know what 'type' of connection they are creating, but I like thinking of the possibilities.

    The last part of the book is divided into the views of the surrounding characters; Nealon, an 'almost 30' agent, Christian, a newbie UD, and Ryder, a newbie UDK trained by Superior August. Every perspective reveals more information and you start to connect with everyone that you pegged a 'bad guy' in the beginning. There's always a villain and this guy, Superior August, could go toe to toe with President Coriolanus Snow (Hunger Games). The man has a personal agenda, thus his arrogant title. He wants to appear to be caring or fair, but really, everyone is expendable. Nealon, being an agent for almost two decades, is tired of this attitude towards the UD's and ultimately makes a decision to level the playing field. We're not sure why he isn't going with the majority, but a peek into his past reveals more emotion to Nealon.

    'Paranormal' seems to fit this story, but it's not like anything I've read before. This is not zombies or vampires. The book does end with a crazy cliffhanger, but this book was a fast read and I am anxious for the follow up.
