I’m a sucker for YA fantasy and this book was right up my street. Orphans with superpowers growing up together, sponsored by a mysterious benefactor. The story grips you from the first intriguing chapter where a baby is handed over. Why? What? How? These questions run through your head Katie St. Claire pulls you deeper and deeper into the well woven tale.
There is a definite hierarchy among the children, and the character of each is so very different but something binds them together and blends well. Julia and Nic are of course in front of the action in this book and there seems to be an unsaid feeling that everything somehow centers around Julia, but unfortunately I have to wait for the second book to find that out.
That’s what I love about series, the can’t wait to find out what happens next and the author has left us hanging, waiting for the next book. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more from this author.
