Opaque is a YA adventure book, first in the Scion Saga series, which focuses on
Adam, the main character, Carly, their relationship, and how they realize their true roots.
Adam, is portrayed as a dark-minded introvert who does not care for the "animals" he's surrounded with in the city of Piure. However, his only exception is Jo-Ann, his mother. He relishes every moment he gets to spend with her. On the other hand, he has a dysfunctional relationship with his father and loathes his very existence.
Then there's the new girl at school, Carly. The aftermath of their first encounter reveals that they are in love with each other and they don't even know it. They eventually spend more time together and get into a relationship, after which Adam realizes that he and Carly are Descendants. Carly then begins to train him and educate him on what is to come. Carly and Adam then go to Afrax, a place hidden underground in which only Descendants can enter, protected from the Iksha, a group of scientists who plan to capture and/or wipe out the entire generation of Descendants.
I honestly loved this book. This is another book I could not drop, and just had to finish it in one sitting. The whole plot and setting were superb. Although there were almost-sex scenes, I wouldn't say this book contained explicit content. There was only one incident of profanity. I would rate this book 4 out of 4 if not for the few errors I noticed. However, there is nothing I disliked about the book. Everything was interesting to read, and that alone pushed me to finish this book way sooner than expected.
I would also recommend this book for people who love reading about adventure (like me).
I rate this book 3 out of 4.
