Passage is a very well-written, captivating book. I was hooked within the first chapter and am left wanting to read more about Charlie and Tirigan and where their struggles/adventures lead them. I felt that the set up and background material was interwoven well with the story. The mystery and action definitely kept me reading. I am looking forward to reading the next book!

With a unique twist and changing points of view, this is a read to enjoy. Charlie and Tirigan are alien twins born on Earth after humans have gone extinct. They've spent their lives traveling with their parents across the globe, meeting few people along the way. When their mother is suddenly captured, their father unveils a dangerous secret which forces the twins to flee to an unknown side of Earth on their own. This part of the story is told from Charlie's point of view, while her brother, Tirigan, slips in every few chapters with flashes to the future where they are on a dangerous mission and he must somehow protect her life. When I picked this one up, I wasn't quite sure how these two points of view from two different time periods would slide together. But the author accomplishes this goal seamlessly. While Charlie does handle most of the book on her own as her and her brother find their world turned upside down and battle to figure out who they are, how they fit in and what they must face, Tirigan comes in only every few chapters as he divulges a dangerous scene in the future, where him and Charlie are closer to their main goal. While the future scene does give away certain bonds of future friendships and alliances, it by no means reveals enough to hint at the answers to the main questions. Instead, these glimpses give Tirigan much more character depth and allow the reader to connect with him on a level which isn't possible earlier. It's clever and works. Although twins, Charlie and Tirigan couldn't be more different, and that makes these characters endearing. Both are determined, willful, kind, uncertain and smart, and thanks to Tirigan's refusal to talk to others and sole communication through his and Charlie's ability to read each other's thoughts, share a very powerful bond. Still, their personalities clash hard. Charlie is emotional, spontaneous, optimistic. Tirigan is more like a 'Spock' from Star Trek. His emotions are extremely held back, he's logical, and highly intelligent. Both, however, are easy to feel for and cheer for. There's never a boring moment, and the plot layers as the tale deepens. Action is mixed with moments of question and discovery. The author takes the time to let explanations hit home, allowing the history and circumstances to gain somewhat solid footing—times when the story does slow down. But it's exciting to follow Charlie and Tirigan as they try to discover themselves and their world, while an unclear danger hangs over their heads. Especially since every character they meet is as intriguing as they are. Science fiction meets magic in a dystopian atmosphere, making this a cross-genre read. Tirigan and Charlie like their mother and an entire species, have a magical ability to control the four elements. Take this with a secret control, which no one seems to fully understand or know about and the dystopian side hits as well. It's a great mix which makes for an intriguing read. The worst part of this book is the cliff-hanger ending. Nothing is wrapped up by the end and the reader is left wanting more. And I want to know what happens to Charlie and Tirigan because these two appear to have tons of danger, excitement and secrets awaiting them. I received a complimentary copy and enjoyed reading this so much that I wanted to leave my honest thoughts.

Dynamic characters, a beautiful, detailed fantasy world, and dual timelines lead to a fast pageturner! The first book of the Akasha Series is a smart read. A robustly built science fiction/fantasy world, fast, witty dialogue, and dynamic characters make this novel a real page-turner while not skimping on the depth of the theory of the magic and social structure that make it realistic. Indie Gantz has captured relatable characters and engaging dual timelines to make me want to never put this book down. After I finished, I kept thinking, "Hmm, I wonder what Charlie and Tirigan are up to?" as though they were close friends- a sure sign of a great read! I can't wait to read more!
