The idea of people who could become invisible was a very neat concept. I was drawn in by the story but soon found out that it was not really for me. The descriptions of their world and the animals that lived there were not enough to paint a vivid picture. The story felt very confusing at times and I had to reread entire chapters to figure out what was going on.
Overall, I didn’t connect with any of the characters other than Caster. He is definitely a new book boyfriend to keep an eye on.
I kind of wish that this story would have taken place around the time the first Flickekin had shown up. I think we would have gotten a better story from that time period. I do think that this story with a little more work could be amazing. It just needed a little more editing. I also think it could be a really good series as there is so much to work with within their world. I would love to see the world beyond the seas.
Romance, intrigue, and plenty of action are woven into a rich and suspenseful narrative in this powerful YA fantasy. The mixed-race heroine Myra is a Flickerkin and can flicker (become invisible) at will. She hasn’t cultivated or revealed this ability, since Flickerkin are persecuted as potential criminals and spies. When invisible people become tricksters and then murderers, Myra’s Flickerkin heritage becomes a deadly secret, putting her relationship with the leader’s son—and her own life—in jeopardy. Loyalties shift and difficult choices are made before Myra understands who she wants to be.
