I’m having a hard time writing this review, since I honestly don’t really know what I think of this book. I enjoyed it but I wasn’t really impressed by it.
I liked the main character, Marina, she went for what she wanted. I also enjoyed some of the side characters, mainly Brady, Kieren and Robbie. Brady being someone she met at school, Kieren is a childhood friend and Robbie is her dead brother. Brady was also supposedly the love interest, but that could have been left out of the story if you ask me. Besides these three, there were a lot of less important side characters, btu there were a bit too many of those. To me that became a bit confusing.
I really liked the portal traveling to parallel universes in this book! It was cleverly done, but I feel like I some parts a bit more explanation was needed! I did really like that we actually saw quite some consequences of actions being done by our characters. And how they tried to solve these consequences.
When I was reading the book, I was flying through the story. But once I put it down, for some reason I was not very intrigued to pick it back up. And I do not really know why..
I do recommend this book if you like portals to parallel universes, and a fast-paced thriller!
