Oh my goodness. Get past the first few chapters. Nothing is as you'd think when you first start reading this. This book gets better and better as the plot goes on. I love how tangled the plotline gets. At first I thought some of the characters where a little too archetypal at the beginning, but it starts to make more sense later on. I also love the way the author explores the different sides of villain's character later on, that said I can't say anything or I'll spoil a huge part of it. Reminded me of little bit of a mix between Harry Potter and X-men, in the way each student had their own "gift". This book portrays the importance of integrity and shows the extreme dangers of getting obsessed with power. So much I want to say about what I loved about it, but not wanting to spoil it The plotline leading up to the end is really well woven together, although I found the very last part at the end up bit cheesy, that said, at least four stars and well worth the read!!
This book is one of my favorite books. Elenora Rose Sabin is an author with a wild imagination. Because of this book, I am now making my own book. Thank you!
