First Impression: A dark cover is sweetly foreboding, and the blurb makes for an interesting premise.
Wonderfully distinct characters leave room for growth and interpersonal development in this stunning debut by Christian Benjamin.
Writing Style: I was able to read straight through with little grammar or spelling errors. This is an appropriate read for anyone teen and up, with a true PG-13 atmosphere. I appreciated the focus was on the characters development personally and with their abilities, with romance as a product of friendship.
What I Liked: I’m a fan of books that encourage themes like self-discovery and growth. “Truth” holds valuable lessons for readers, while not throwing anything in your face. I enjoyed the build of action and tension, and am satisfied with how the first book in this series ended.
Deal Benders: There are a few spelling and grammar errors, but not too shabby if that’s my only complaint!
Overall Rating: I gave this book 5 stars because I would read it again, and I will read the next one. A delightful read full of adventure, mystery, love, and suspense – I couldn’t put it down. Happy reading!
