Eureka!! Eureka !!
Huge thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of the book
I feel like running around shouting Eureka !! on the streets like that scientist dude, what was his name…? oh yeah !! Archimedes… This Medes guy shouted Eureka because he discovered something that eventually led to all those huge headaches i had in my science classes but the reason I am shouting Eureka is because for the first time I actually found a kick ass heroin that does not chameleon herself as the story progress.The character starts out kick ass, I mean literally kicking ass and maintains that ferocity till the very end.
I absolutely loved, loved and loved this book.
You got to love the book for its amazing range of characters. This is one of those books where each characters are given their own space and everybody has distinctive identity. The story is amazing and has enough depth and intrigue factor to keep you entertained. The only area that the book falters is in the language and narration department. It is a little rough around the edges and requires a bit of smoothing and if that is achieved, nothing can stop this book as the central character, Lacey will plunge deep into your hearts with her charisma.
For me Lacey alone was enough reason to fall for the book and as the book proceeds you see a sharper and impressive story taking place. Lacey, our central character is sharp, and her tongue even more sharper and making her a very colorful character.
A fantastic central character that is powerful in every way and adds a lot of colour to the whole book and while she brings you to the book, the story makes you stay. Lots of amazing characters coupled with a terrific story makes this book a very promising one. Yes admittedly there is a bit of roughness to the language and narration but something which can be overlooked in comparison to how rest of the book flows.
