I first started this thinking it would be more alone the lines of Xmen mixed in with a military background. Yes, that is me, jumping to conclusions again. But it wasn't that way and once I figured that out I started to really get hooked by the mystery of what was going on and what might happen.
The first two chapters were hard for me to get through, but after that the story really took off. I loved the characters, I was expecting a bit more romance but I would have to say this has romance elements but it isn't the focus. I thought this was really well done, there were things in there that I really didn't see coming and had me going back to different parts to reread.
I loved the snarkiness of the main character and I loved all the pop references that were made. Only one or two flew by me but the rest had me giggling. It didn't get in the way of the story or break it up tension when not necessary. Which I think is harder that we realize.
