Ayda Blackhawk was the beautiful, mysterious new girl at Eagle Ridge High School, in the Mountain Division of the New World, She was not there to make friends but to bring destruction. Her assignment? To kill the Thunderkin heir. But Ayda meets Adrian the ThunderKin leader, and through a twist of fate, the rules change which places Ayda, Adrian and their world at the cross roads to either destruction or redemption.
I thought the universe behind this story was interesting and unique. I liked the fun and lighthearted tone to the story, although at times it seemed to clash a little with the serious tone of the plot.
Plot: Basically, a girl was created to kill the heir of another clan. The entire plot has a kind of Romeo and Juliet thing going on, but set in a strange, modern-fantasy blended world. Although I thought the plot was fairly predictable, I enjoyed the journey along the way.
Characters: The characters in this story seemed strangely lighthearted given the premise of the story.I found the characters to be fun, but at-odds with the universe.
Setting: I thought this story was supposed to take place in a universe different from our own, but it seemed like any other high school setting that you would find in a non-fantasy book. Because of the confusion, I wasn’t sure if the story was supposed to take place in a fantasy universe, or in our own world.
Writing: The writing in this story was fun and fast-paced. There is never a dull moment, and the plot progresses nicely throughout the story.
If you like fun, lighthearted fantasy and classic YA tales of forbidden love, then you will probably really enjoy this book and the ones that follow.
