Main Idea: All in all, I would definitely recommend reading this book. While there is not much Alex, at all… which is a total bummer, it is still a fast-paced, action packed read definitely worth your time!
However, I did really enjoy this book, hence the four star rating. I am all about a book with action and fast pacing, and save the first 50-75 pages, this book totally had that. I also loved the changing timelines aspect of this book- the way it switched from then and now. However, the “then” part always bored me a bit. I liked the “now” part much better!
A new person was also introduced, Julian. Although, I can’t tell you how he fit into the story. That would be a spoiler… But the adventures she and Julian find themselves in were definitely very exciting!
For the most part, I saw all the major plot twists coming as most people have expressed which was kind of a bummer. There were a few smaller ones that I didn’t see coming though, so those were always nice surprises!
