    Not quite overtaken

    Although I hate to say it, I was somewhat underwhelmed by this book. I had high hopes because I've heard good things about Lieske, but I just never connected with this book. I read a lot of YA and enjoy fantasy and scifi, so I thought this book would be right up my alley, but I was never sucked into the story...never able to forget I was reading a book. You know how when you're reading a book that you really connect with, you can lose yourself in the story? I was never able to lose myself.

    It wasn't a bad story. I thought the premise was interesting. Being a comic book fan, I enjoyed the idea of the characters having powers, but it would have been nice to see the powers used a little bit more. It sounds like the powers may play a more key role in later books, so maybe I'm just impatient ;)

    With a romance central to the story's plot, I didn't "believe" it. Yes, the characters are young and therefore may be forgiven for acting silly, but it still seemed a bit fast to be throwing around the "L" word after only a few dates. Since this story is obviously going to take up more than one book, I think the romance aspect may have worked better for me if it had been a slower build up across the whole trilogy/series(?).

    This is also a small nitpick, and maybe it's a regional thing, but Shayne spelled like that makes me think of a girl's name.

    Note: I read a free review copy from author
