This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.

 


 

Hvornår startede det egentlig?
Med den gamle dame der beskyldte os for verdens undergang?
Med drømmen om de lysende hænder?
Med kompasset der gav os brandsårene?
Eller længe før?

15-årige Emilie tegner en dreng med turkise øjne og et mystisk prismesmykke. Dagen efter får hun et chok, da drengen starter i hendes klasse.
Før Emilie får set sig om, har hun trekantede ar i håndfladerne, og hendes skolekammerater begynder at kunne uforklarlige ting.
Eller er det bare indbildning?
Grænserne mellem drøm og virkelighed viskes ud, og Emilie prøver desperat at undgå at blive en del af kaosset.
Men snart må hun indse sandheden.
Det er kun et spørgsmål om tid …

 


 

The book is currently only available in Danish and Polish, lol! Sorry.

I liked the way the author wrote. It was capturing and describing. However, it took half the book reaching the point where it got interesting, before that; it was just a story about friendships and getting a shallow introduction of our main characters. Could have used some more excitement and action! Because it became a little boring. Throughout the book, I noticed some things that was so unrealistic! Especially those parents! They are so unaware of their children; it made no sense to me whatsoever.

I had major problems with some of the characters especially Emilie and Noah. Emilie being our main character is such a weak character, her personality if she even had one annoyed me. Moreover, Noah, don’t even get me started! He was a two – faced lying problem child, I felt absolutely no sympathy with him at any point. The other characters, well Adriana was a little too cliché for my taste.

The plot lacked a bit as well. This is more an introduction seeing as it’s going to be a book series containing eight books in total! However, the things that did happen in this book makes it clear what the next ones are going to be about – and whom of the smaller characters we’ve only seen once or twice – has a bigger role.

My main issue in general was the fact that I was at around 60 percent done with the book before it started getting interesting.
