By the time I finished the first chapter of this book, I had fallen in love with Victoria Schwab's writing and world building. The concept is very appealing to me and Schwab was able to develop the story, the characters and the world in a very interesting and compelling way.
As regards characters, I felt that all of them were very relatable and their reactions to the events that unfold throughout the book were very realistic. I connected with Mackenzie and her mourning right away and also loved how badass she could get. Wes and Rolland I keep picturing him as 10 were definitely my favourites.
The only thing I wasn’t completely happy about was the love triangle. It could be said that it had to some extend a purpose for the story but Mackenzie's relationship with Owen seem rushed and unrealistic to me.
Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I had high expectations for it and they were all met. It had a good story, an interesting premise, well-rounded characters and quite a lot of action. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of Victoria Schwab's books, especially Vicious that sounds amazing!
