Liked:* The world-building is pretty nifty. I especially like that there is a price paid to use magic. It's nice to see it not come super-easy.* The shift in Allie's powers is interesting and it's also nice that she doesn't instantly master it.* I really enjoyed Cody's character. * The narrator gave an excellent performance.Liked Less:* I wasn't really feeling the chemistry between Allie & Zayvion. * The world is neat but I felt that some things could have been fleshed out a little better.* The ending fell a bit flat for me.Overall, a good UF read with what seems like first-in-a-series syndrome. I will likely check out the next book to see if things go from good to wow.
