Creative new world!
I loved the world this author introduced. The division of the Highmost and the Common reminds me of the Uglies and the Pretties in the Pretties series, while the manor divisions reminds me of the different factions in Divergent. The Strains, of course, reminds me of the force. So this novel is able to cover the needs of fantasy, dystopian, and sci-fi lovers alike.
For the most part the novel flows. I love the main characters Leilani and Zeb. My favorite parts are how Leilani befriends Brick, one of the guards at the manors. Their relationship was perfect and delicious at the same time.
A few parts of the novel dragged. A few of the characters are whiny at times, but the world is intriguing and that makes up for the little things. Rest assured, the ending is action packed with a few surprises.
The last quarter of the novel was definitely my favorite.
Young adult readers will enjoy this novel the most, but it's well written and engaging enough for adults.
