Genre: YA fantasy/paranormal
Back Cover Blurb:
Khan’s writing definitely has a very YA feel to it, yet readers never feel as if she’s talking down to them. It’s really the best of both worlds. She develops her world in a unique manner that leaves it open to the readers’ interpretation. It definitely comes to life all on its own. That said, there’s just something about the way that she words things at times that prevented me from completely immersing myself in the story. The plot was enjoyable, but without this connection, I felt somewhat removed from the tale.
The characters in this novel were very well done. I appreciate how Khan makes her YA characters YA individuals, but with a twist. These characters incorporate youth infatuation/young love with an urban fantasy adventure including mythical beasts without missing a beat.
As a whole, this was an enjoyable YA read. It was unique and well presented. It would definitely be enjoyed by those who love the genre.
