This was a pretty good read.
This series seems to be paced like the Darkest Powers Trilogy, in that the ending of the first book in that the climax isn't BAM! in your face and it's not really a cliffhanger hanger...I don't know how to explain it, but if you've read the Darkest Powers, I think you'll know what I mean.
Maya is a strong character and she's unfolding - as the story progresses- the truth about herself. One thing I loved about this was that the parents in the book were actually involved in the main characters life because more often that not in YA paranormal/fantasy the parents are barely there. It's nice to see that they play a role here.
Rafe (the mysterious bad boy but not really aka love interest) I'm not sure of, sure I'm rooting for them, but I haven't gotten enough information about him to say how I truly feel about him as a person. We do get a fair amount of scene time..I'm just greedy ( :P )
Daniel is a dear [the protective best friend). Right now (anything can happen later..I doubt it though) he and Maya are just best friends, and I love their relationship. And I'm pretty sure that he's not exactly human
The town itself is...well let's just say I want to know just exactly what these research people are up to.
Overall it was a fun and quick read.
