To quote a few characters from a few different books, "What fresh hell is this?" Don't know but this is terrible. I took a chance on this book because I read Esperanza and liked it. Bad decision!
I couldn't tell what was going on from the very beginning. The book reads like a rough draft for a video game. The characters are one dimensional, the plot (is there one?) is confusing and the storyline is disjointed. There's a feeling of being dropped in the middle of this tale and the reader knows nothing of what's going on. Forget about world building, it doesn't exist. The characters and situations make no sense. A bunch of college kids have powers. We don't know where the powers came from or why. Names like supporters, prodigies, etc are dropped often but the author never defines or explains in any depth. I could go on and on but I don't feel like typing that much.
