Hello. My name is Tricia, and I have an addiction, an addiction to fiction. Fellow addicts, I welcome you with open arms. Blogger over @ bookwormcoalition.wordpress.com
Starr Fall was an exciting read! I liked the idea of this type of shadowy government unit recruiting the best and the brightest in this really suspect way, even against their will. I really want to know more about them and the kids that they are warping to their surely nefarious ends. We got to see the lengths they are willing to go to for what they want, but it is still kind of a mystery as to what is really driving them to these lengths and why they are so desperate to get their hands on Starr Bishop.
I quite liked Starr, she was very bright and resourceful, and she has a kind heart. I loved the systematic, logical way she broke things down each time she was faced with these seemingly impossible situations. A lot of this book was Starr just trying to survive and stay off the radar, but I have a feeling that we will see a lot more of her striking back at this corrupt organization in future books, because there's no doubt that Starr is a fighter, she just needed a just cause.
I'm a little unsure of my feelings on Christian. On one hand he is definitely a noble kind of guy so far, it seems to be like he had a penchant for sticking up for the underdogs, or rather people in need. The relationship between him and Starr seemed a little rushed to me, and to be honest I would have preferred to have a little more of the mystery/suspense and a little less of the romance. But this was a faster paced story in general so I suppose that makes sense to have things advance more quickly. I just have this weird vibe from Christian though like he's somehow mixed up in this situation more so than just trying to help Starr. I have this feeling that he has a secret or two and they may impact things between Starr and him later.
I'm curious to see what else happens in the next book! I have a few burning questions that I would love to have answered.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
