Brothers continues with her very vivid descriptions and settings in this novel. I appreciate the fact that there is a very concrete distinction between the descriptions of the human world and of Boundless. Everything in the human world is quite realistic, while in Boundless everything is larger than life.
I really appreciate the fact that the characters stay true to form from instalment to instalment, even the ones who don’t appear in every novel. Even though the characters are consistently themselves, they aren’t always the same. They continue to grow and develop based on their circumstances, challenges faced, and the fact that they are teens in high school on the road to becoming adults.
I love that the 16 year old protagonist doesn’t know which boy she wants to be with. It’s refreshing to read a young adult story where teens aren’t bonded or mated for life. The relationships portrayed in this novel are on par for the age range of the characters. Even though they may face some farfetched challenges, their reactions to these things and to each other are quite accurate.
I very much enjoyed this novel on its own and as part of the Unbidden Magic series. I also love the fact that each installment is a story in and of itself, still working to help tell the overarching tale of this very interesting heroine.
