The story about replicas (clones) with added mystery carried me easily through. Add a quirk of duality in main characters, Gemma and Lyra, present the book materially in upside down/reverse-side-of-the-book stories, make interesting reference to parallel phrases in "The Little Prince"....and you have a compelling YA novel.

You have to give this one time. I was hesistent and skeptical at first because of the format. I ended up reading Lyra first and then Gemma. I thought it was going to ruin Gemma's story for me and when I began, I was rather bored. However, as Gemma's story progressed I found it just as interesting from her perspective as I did from Lyra's perspective. Also, I didn't know this was a series so when I read Lyra's story I was ridiculously unsatisfied but halfway through Gemma's I learned it was a series. So I was excited knowing there was more to this story and these characters.

This was a very different book. The perspectives of both Gemma and Lyra greatly helped to solidify the events of the book, and provide clearer understanding. Although Lyra's part of the book had a dissatisfactory ending (in my opinion), the book tied up really well. The book was a perfect balance of events, with nice pacing to it, too. The book was also meaningful, with nothing just thrown in there without a reason. Throughout this book, I was easily forming my own reasonings and speculations about the mysteries of the characters, backstory, and events that took place. The book answered all of them, without making them anticlimactic. I greatly enjoyed getting to make my own theories as to what was happening in the book, and then getting to see the actual result. Overall, this was a great book and I will be recommending it to friends.
