This series must be read in order. This is the first book. I can't wait to read The Shadow Collector!
Brooklyn has never understood what she actually is. All she has ever known is that she is Different (with a capital D!) Inside and out. She has always only known her mother... And has serious doubts about her*father*. Did he take her mother? Or just hurt her? Emotionally? Physically? Either way... She doesn't know ANYTHING about him. Not what he looked like. Not his name. Nothing. But he HAS to be where she got her freak show coloring from. How else can a Latino woman have a white as paper kid? Being a firefighter is a dream job, especially since fire calms her and helping innocent people is fulfilling. Finding out she is immune to fire is just an unexpected plus. Will she ever find out anything about her father? Or why she is so different from anyone she has ever met? Why can she read people's intentions clear as day? Will people ever see her as more than some kid?
This is an amazing new world that I can't wait to explore further! Magic and technology side by side along with a smattering of psychics make for an intriguingly nuanced cast of characters. What is hidden beneath the surface is a mystery yet to be solved. Cox out does himself with each and every new world he creates! His characters are vivid and unique, fraught with flaws and dreams, making them believable and engaging as well as easy to relate to. I can't wait to see what this world holds for its inhabitants!
