Sometimes after reading so many YA books, readers begin to see a pattern repeated several times over.  Every now and then, a YA book comes along that doesn't follow that pattern and takes an unexpected path.  This was one of those books for me. I have to admit, in the first part of the book, Lucky's lack of judgement and impulsiveness frustrated me; then again, she's an eighteen-year-old teenager, and those characteristics are entirely realistic for that age group.  She was struggling with quite a few life-altering changes and discovered a dark, unknown side to herself but, with counsel from some wise friends, was operating on a more mature level by the end of this book. The characters are so well-developed and distinct and possess such depth they seemed to take on a life of their own.  A few new characters were introduced that may play bigger roles in the next installment.  The world-building is top-notch and fascinating, making it easy to become immersed while reading. Lucky's conflicting feelings about Aidan and Kev are resolved in this book, but that was only part of the story.  There are hints of a war to come, with power shifts and the uncertainty of who to trust.  I'm curious to see exactly how Lucky's G-Ma fits into the overall picture because, in her moments of lucidity, she seems to have some knowledge of future events. This is one of the most enjoyable and captivating NA/YA urban fantasy series I've read and I highly recommend it to fans of this genre.  If urban fantasy isn't really your thing, but maybe you're just a little curious, this would be a great place to test the waters.
