I went into The Many Lives of Avery Snow, by Christy Sloat, not really knowing what to expect. The plot sounded somewhat intriguing, but not like the stories I usually read. I wanted a quick read though so I picked it up this weekend and thought, "Eh, maybe I'll like it enough to finish it in a couple days."
I could not put this book down.
I was shocked by how quickly I was drawn into the story, into the world that Sloat has beautifully created. It was so fast-paced and exciting that I never once got bored, the only time I put this book down was when I could no longer keep my eyes open at 3am!
The characters were my favorite part of this first book in the Past Lives series. I'm 100% Team Avery, all the way. She is a fantastic heroine, who has dealt with some pretty bad stuff, and even though she has weak moments, Avery is real, relatable, and easy to fall in love with. The rest of the cast was equally well written, each character felt so unique and were their own person with real depth. And then there is Dallas*excuse me while I go swoon*.
As I stated before, Christy Sloat has done a wonderful job of building a unique world for Avery's story. The mythology she has created is beautiful and unlike anything I've ever read. It really was a treat to read!
I only had one real issue with this book. The editing was very, very lacking, and maybe that kind of thing bothers me more than most people, but I found it to be quite distracting at points. I don't fault Christy for this because, well, she's not the editor. I also am not an editor, but I found myself wanting to grab a red pen and fill in all the missing words, commas, and apostrophes. Despite all of the errors, I was able to overall enjoy the book.
I'm sure it's obvious by now, but I want to restate how much I really loved The Many Lives of Avery Snow. I'm definitely looking forward to continuing the series, and if those books are as good, it's a series that I will probably reread someday!
