Date Published: February 1, 2016
Serve the community. Obey the laws. Exist on anxiety pills. This is all Monet, a ward of her city, can hope for until she and her friend, Luke, find an old book that shows the history of mankind—a past that’s been hidden from them and all the citizens of Titus. As their curiosity takes them down a dangerous path, extraordinary events begin to occur, showing them God may exist and is reaching out to them through illegal art and a realm of paranormal activity. Monet and Luke find themselves at a crossroads: live within the safe, logical confines of Titus, or embrace the wild truth and risk death.
There are a lot of moving parts to this novel. As always, starting a new series is a bit tough when trying to understand the world the author has created. This one was no different. It took a bit for me to grasp things but once I did, I was hooked.
There are a lot of minor characters to filter through in this novel. Some of the secondary characters were fun and really helped the novel, but some of those minor ones really bogged it down in my opinion.
I loved the female lead and how confused yet powerful Monet was. Luke was very well crafted as a character as well and really seemed to balance Monet.
There is more to come, and I can't wait to see what's next.
