Convince us to read the book: The book had several elements which were strong, and others which were weaker. The interwoven story lines worked well. Just when you were getting tired of one story, you would be whisked to another, and your interest in the book was rekindled. Unfortunately, both the romance and the way the story lines actually come together seems very contrived.
Memorable or Forgettable: This book was somewhat unmemorable. The intertwining story lines were nice and refreshing, even if the author didn't pull their intersection very well. There are, however, several parts of the book that are bizarrely skimmed over as well, the climactic battle at the end being a notable case.
Cover: The cover reflected the content of the book fairly well, and it did tempt me to pick the book up.
Age Range: Under 12 through 15
Quality: 3Q Readable
Popularity: 3P Some teen appeal
