The first book was explosive. It was jammed packed with fighting, drama, and a girl who was trying to find herself. The reader got put immediately in her shoes and you felt her anger, well at least I did. Val never got a break. She was blamed for everything and told to stay away from her family. It was harsh. The way that she found herself I liked. She put her powers to use in a good way helping keeping the city safe. I adored her strength to keep her head on straight and do what needed to be done regardless of her feelings.The love interest was good. Although, I am a bit miffed at the way Dan treated her. Dan, you are a Class A jerkwad. That is all.
