This book was definitely worth the wait. My kid and I had just finished the lux series by this author and were left with the feeling “now what to read” it just so happened this books timing to be released was only a couple months later! The story was well written and it flowed to where once you started you did not want to stop reading. I finished reading in a couple days (work made it to where I unfortunately had to take breaks) and my kid whose in jr high finished it during the school work by reading any available time between classes and after done with work. We would both recommend this book to others and are super excited to read book two once it comes out later this year. This book can be read separately from the lux series but I would recommend them all!
