My star rating: 5/5

I began this book in the afternoon...which was a big mistake. I couldn't put it down! Every few pages one of my kids would interrupt me for something, and I got so frustrated! Even so, I read this in one day. I loved the diversity of the characters, as this is a quality severely lacking from so many books. Miranda and Jared were sweet; I think it was so cool that it wasn't one of those "love at first sight" nonsensical stories (she describes it as feeling "uneasy" around him). Every one of the characters were expertly fleshed out and relatable, even the "villain" (I feel bad calling Gareth that). The action scenes were full of energy and completely engaging. But my favorite thing was the narration. It changed completely depending on what time period the author was referring to. When we're reading about the brothers' past, it's very formal and fitting to the date being spoken of. When it's happening in the present, it's more light and current. Great job!
