Reading this book feels like the start of a series about an alien entity and its need to possess a host to survived. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking – root word = HOST. Yup, it’s like a duplicate of The Host by Stephenie Meyer minus the world invasion. It’s very close but not nearly as confusing as the way this book was written.
I actually liked the couple here. Misha and Riley have got potentials to weave a long lasting impression in the genre’s coupledom but unfortunately, the interchanging POV (of about a million secondary characters) didn’t really work for me here. It’ way too bizarre (which should’ve been interesting) but boring at the same time. I loved the “alien” McClane’s smart-ass comments but the story itself didn’t give us a lot to really root for the couple. It’s like they only share 50% of the screentime when they’re actually the leading stars. What’s up with that? I told you – BIZAARRROOO.
There’s just too much going on in this book and too many characters to remember but were as unforgettable as hell. Too bad really, it could’ve gone better. But hey – I wouldn’t mind a sequel focusing on the couple instead.
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
