Narrated by Kathleen Li
Hope Baskins and her sisters are triplets. On their 16th birthday they come into strange powers. This is about Hope, so everything is from her or Bryce’s perspective.
Spoilers possible in discussion. Definitely included after the ads.
- Side Note: Switching character perspectives is fine in a story. I do it all the time, but it’s really, really annoying if the exact same spot is covered from multiple perspectives, right down to lines of dialogue. Don’t repeat lines of dialogue.
- Story 3/5: I think 90% of the story is Hope and Bryce training or talking to his dad. And the father saying “gee, that’s weird. Lemme go research that.” Or them eating tuna sandwiches. Or buckling their seatbelts to go from her place to his or vice versa. Or them kissing.
- Main Characters 3.5/5: Hope’s ice powers are cool. She never gets the hang of the visions though.
- Side Characters 3/5: Sean and The kid Bryce doesn’t get along with (I forget his name) don’t really do much.) There is a big twist at the end but I think it might be undone in a future book.
- World building 3/5: The beginning prophecy is cool, but not much else happens. Even if it got more confuse, it might have made more sense if we even got a smidge another other sister’s’ abilities. There are a lot of questions about the secret society the 3 boys and their dads belong to. Where are their mothers? The secret society is named once early but I forget its name.
- I think the series and premise have potential, but the end battle was kinda anticlimactic. We don’t even get to experience it from Hope’s perspective. We get it second hand through Bryce.
- I do love the sisters’ names. I just wish we knew a little more about them. That would allow for more attachment to them.
- The narrator did a fine job.
- We hear a lot about a great evil and then get 1 mediocre representative of them. What is their motive?
