Author Theresa Kay / Reviewed by Felita Daniels / 290 Pages
I haven’t read this author before. It is easy, casual reading. The pacing was excellent. The plot was being advanced while you get to know the characters at the same time. She never stopped the action and had you read paragraphs of information. Bravo! The dialogue was written with the appropriate vocabulary for the characters.
Jace and Jax (short for Jasmine) are brother and sister twins. They are both competent young adults with skills and maybe a few secrets. Jax is a courageous tomboy. I relate to the idea that she doesn’t know how to ‘fix her hair.’ The main alien character’s name is Lir. Unlikely strangers are thrown together for a rescue mission. There is a little, sci- fi, some romance, action and how do you figure out who to trust built in.
It is a real writing skill to be able to write a fight scene. Enough detail to tell us who is where and what they are doing, but not so much that it slows down the excitement and pace with long passages of description. Ms. Kay hit that balance just right.
