This is certainly a first book in a series sort of story. It's incredibly fast, almost too fast for my taste. Things jump ahead months, and if you're not paying attention, you won't notice it. There are also times that I don't even notice Ms. Hale saying time has passed until the end of a conversation. It didn't really like it to much.That being said: There are qualities in the story (the concept) that I am naturally drawn too. And I love the idea of two worlds touching and almost coexisting. The lgbt theme of the some characters is wonderful and I will read the rest of the series. I'll not give up on Ginn Hale.
