I really enjoyed this–definitely stayed up too late the last two nights reading it. The small town setting was right on. I feel like I’ve been to that town. I would have liked more direct interaction with the monster, or at least more direct menace from the monster, but that’s a pretty minor complaint. I feel like the end set up a possible sequel, and if there is one I’ll definitely be reading it.
This was great fun. The very specific, descriptive names of the superheroes made me laugh several times. I particularly love Inspector Well Actually. This was fun and light and very enjoyable.
I really enjoyed this. It was a fun premise and has so much more to explore in sequels but still wrapped up the story that was happening in this book. I also enjoyed Cass’s voice and the problems arising from her friendship with Jacob.
I felt like the story was just getting started all through this book. Then, there was an incredibly abrupt ending, basically in the middle of a scene. I was actually startled when the “you’ve finished this book” page popped up, because I was expecting the next page of the scene. There were some really good parts, and I loved the descriptions of small town living, but I was left feeling like I didn’t get a full story.
I’m only giving this three stars because it was really disjointed in the beginning. There were a lot of jarring jumps between scenes throughout, but they started making more sense later in the book so weren’t quite as bad, but it was hard to track what was happening. I had to work a little harder than I usually like to keep going. That said, I really enjoyed the characters and the premise and the undercurrent of magic in modern places.
This was my favorite of the stories so far. I feel like things are really moving and yet getting more complicated. Lots of fun, and I can’t wait to see what happens next! And I’m so sad there’s not a next book to roll right into yet, darn it!
This was another fun read. One of the things I especially like about this stories is the little hints of things going on underneath the main story. Hints about the Families and other possible magic. The hints make me try to guess what these bigger stories might be and keep me reading to see if I get any more hints.
Another fun story. I love how fast these are even if it makes them really hard to put down so going to bed at a reasonable time is out of the question. The ending was a little abrupt and left a couple of cliffhangers (I really don’t like cliffhangers!), though, but at least the next book is out so I can jump right in and see what’s happening next.
