Series: untitled #1


Blue woke up one morning in her small town to find that almost everyone in it was dead. Seth was a stranger in town but also survived. The two of them met while searching for survivors and discovered they had developed superpowers. Someone was after them and didn’t want them to be found.

The romance was the best part of the story, which was a huge part of it. Seth and Blue developed feelings quickly but didn’t trust each other right away. It had an instalove vibe but it didn’t bother me much. They took more time getting to know each other than in other novels like this.

I had expected there to be more in terms of plot. The majority of the book they were on the run and it got slightly repetitive. I hadn’t realized until the book was over that this is the first in a series because there wasn’t really a resolution at the end. All of the character’s fates were left unexplained. I wouldn’t say it ended with a cliffhanger. It’s more like the story ended at a random point half way through.

I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
