The author did a great job in narrating Adam's character. I love it. I wonder how he was able to picture a sixteen years old boy in his mind. Calix deserve 4 out of 4 star for this book.

This YA fantasy seems like an interesting read with engaging worldbuilding as one if its best attributes. I like that, in spite of the fantastical elements, the characters are so relatable. Thank you for the detailed review.

I like YA sci-fi, and one whose characters possess supernatural traits sounds like one I can enjoy reading. I'm, therefore, looking forward to reading it. Thank you for this wonderful review!

I really want to read this! I love books that allow me to escape into a fantasy realm but still seem realistic enough. I can't wait to add this to my collection.

The fact that a lot of information and knowledge is up for grabs makes it a good read: mutation, work, stress, etc makes it a good influence. Your review is great and informative.
