Transfixion – J. Giambrone – Contains mild spoilers

I received a copy of this ebook in exchange for a honest review  

Note: I felt this book had some gruesome scenes about the wounded as it is based around a war. Just be aware of this if your planning to read it

Rating: 2.5 Stars

I am a fan of YA books but usually do not read much Sci Fi, so it was a nice change for me to read this book. The start of this book was both intriguing and confusing, I will admit I had no idea what was going in the first 6 chapters but I was hooked on the story so far, and I needed to know why everything was happening. As the story progressed some things started to be explained but I will admit I spent the book feeling like I may have missed out on something. The story line was action paced and faced paced but I could not work out why the Armageddon and why the fighting was going on.

I liked Kaylee, she was a good main character, as it was a YA book she did not make too many stupid decisions and I did not end up being annoyed with her which can happen with the YA genre. Dustin also intrigued me, at points I wanted to shake him but  she always had Kaylee’s back which was nice. There was a suggestion that there was something a little bit more developing between these two than friendship, but that is only a minor sub plot that is hinted at.

I did wonder why Kaylee was unable to speak until nearing the end of the book, it was not explained. By the end of the book I still had some unanswered questions which I wanted the answer to, there were loose ends in the story and so this did take away abit from the enjoyment of the story. This book was a good read and I wish I could give it a higher rating, I would say if you enjoy a fast paced story with loads of action then this book is for you.

I really did like the writing in the book, it flowed well and was well paced but as mentioned before I wish the loose ends were tied up and I knew who to hate. I mean I was waiting for the massive reveal where the baddie comes to light, laughs over the evil plan and then gets thwarted. What I missed in the book was not knowing who the person or people behind the plot were. I would have given this a higher rating if these issues had been resolved.
