The storyline was compelling. The characterization was also fantastic. Jessica Shirvington does a fantastic job capturing Maggie's emotions, transforming her from a shut-off vigilante eager to save her father into a heroine worthy of deep love and respect.
I loved several characters, including Maggie and Quentin. While Maggie is very rough around the edges, she's quite vulnerable and fascinating to follow. I also enjoyed watching Quentin's rise from spoiled rich kid to a hero in his own right.
Hannah Morris tries, she really does. Unfortunately, she hasn't quite kicked the Australian accent. She also ends many of her sentences in a question. This is very disorienting, because Maggie most certainly isn't a questioning character. She's a point-blank, this-is-how-it's-gonna-be character. By ending her sentences with a question, Morris detracts from Maggie's characterization. Further, Morris often lapses into a monotone, and many of her characters sound exactly the same. I'm not sure why Quentin's kick ass mother sounds so darn sweet, or why Morris can't at least attempt a deeper voice for the guys.
They thought they'd won ... she proved them wrong.
