Sci-fi with personality.
When Adam faces his poison, and decides he wants to be clean.
Really great characterization. Recognizable voices that I could easily tell apart. Good level of emotion. This character goes through a lot, and May portrays it without getting overdamatic or crazy-sounding.
Sections of it were. It was so fast-moving and high emotion that I ended up needing a break sometimes.
I thought the world building was interesting. In a place without technology, mind-powers are more prevalent. Loved that people were basically afraid of things like cell phones, etc. And she did a great job of maintaining it throughout. Finished it this morning, already downloaded book 2. :)
This book might be better for someone who doesn't need closure.
No, but I'm not reading any more by this author for awhile. This book was really dry in parts. I went away and came back to it several times, just to get it finished. (I just can't leave a book unread.)
I loved the accents, and he did a great job of making each character sound different. Wonderful!
I wished that Kaliss and Nimcha had more "screentime." They are amazingly interesting plot devices who never get fully explored as characters. I loved Meroka. I would read a book that was just about her.
The ending of this book is extremely unsatisfying. Nothing resolves. The characters are left literally hanging. By that point I was *almost* to a point where I didn't care what happened to them, but ... there were just so many promises in this book that never paid off -- Angel society -- I want to know more; really amazing technology -- please show me some that doesn't start crapping out right away; techtomancers can do things -- LIKE WHAT?!? What kind of culture do the skull boys have? What is the origin of Kaliss and Nimcha? Why is Fray so "frayed"? How did Tulwah get that way? NO PAYOFFS!
