Series: Mind Games, Book 1
Fia has an uncanny ability to make the right decisions. Annie sees visions of the future. The two sisters, left orphans at a young age, are taken into an unusual school for girls with their kinds of talents. What they little expect is for that school to use their talents for their own purposes. Now Fia is trying to protect Annie, no matter the cost.
Things I Liked:
What a crazy ride this book was! I got really immersed in Fia's mind, though it was not a place I wanted to hang out. I loved that we got to see from Annie's point of view too, because she made it more palatable to be with Fia. I could only handle so much of Fia's stream of consciousness style. The book has a twisty plot and crazy ideas and is not a happy ending kind of story. Which made me like it even more. Also, it felt like a stand alone, which also made me happy, though I understand there are to be sequels. I loved trying to figure out what was going on, who was doing what, and why it was all happening. I got answers to most of those questions.
Things I Didn't Like:
It got a bit confusing with all the stuff going on - the multiple perspectives and the mysteries. At times I was completely lost, but I think I mostly just enjoyed the ride. I was swept up in the action, in broken Fia and I especially liked the ending, which seemed just about right, if a bit sad. Really interesting, but hopefully will get a touch more polish in the final version.
Honestly, not sure I've read anything like it. Maybe a little like the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter
BOOK CONTENT RATINGS:
no f-bombs that I recall, but some swearing
though some sensual moments
Fia does fight and kill and she is ruthless
Overall rating: ****
