There were so many moments as the plot barreled forward where I realized amazing connections that I had overlooked in the early chapters, making it a book to gleefully read again. Surprising and thoughtful, the plot builds steadily and ends with a bang.
The suspenseful bits are ratcheted up high and the mysterious, secretive atmosphere will have readers at the edge of their seats and resisting the urge to shuffle forward a few pages. I absolutely love it when an aura of mystery permeates throughout the entire telling of a story. Wint left enough details unresolved that readers will be waiting with bated breath for the next instalment in the series.
Author J. Wint's young adult dystopian series starts with a bang and should appeal to sci-fi and fantasy lovers alike. The plot moves at a blistering pace, with a narrative that also incorporates elements from adventure and mystery genres to keep you on your toes and turning the pages with eager anticipation of what's to come.
J. Wint has created an entirely new universe set in the semi-distant future that is easy to believe and impossible to put down. I absolutely love when genre lines are blurred, and The Prism Affect is a perfect example of combining science fiction, mystery, supernatural, and action. Even athletics and technology make a fair appearance, as we are introduced to the newest, futuristic sport since Quidditch.
Superbly written, the story fires the imagination from the very beginning. The combination of the race against the clock and the distinctive characters creates a suspenseful and unforgettable first book in what promises to be a spectacular series.
