Review:

  • Parts of the book, especially when they were hiding, felt a little slow. I wanted more suspense. The last third of the book was super good though! A lot of stuff happened that I wouldn’t have suspected or even figured out on my own.
  • Really liked the characters. Riley was dealing with PTSD and survivors guilt, but she still managed to do so much during the book, even if she didn’t feel that way. I liked that she had knowledge thanks to her father being a cop.
  • Max had his own POV. It was done differently than Riley and I liked that it seemed to match him really well. The dictionary descriptions went well for each one, but I also liked that it helped you understand how he was thinking a bit more.

Review:

  • It was interesting but I thought the story would be different based on the description. I can’t pinpoint what exactly I was expecting, but it was missing something.
  • Nix’s father had a lot of problems in this book and I had a hard time liking him, I still didn’t near the end, but if he would have communicated with his daughter more a lot of things could have gone smoother.
  • The traveling aspect was the most interesting, but some of the rules about the maps really sucked for the characters. I wanted to more about the traveling and how it worked. We do learn some crucial things but I wanted more.
  • Overall it was an ok book but not one that I loved.

  1. I’m still skeptical about The Girl from Everywhere so I don’t know if I’ll end up reading it. I’ve read a lot of positive reviews but I just don’t know…I have a feeling I might feel like you did here about it. Kelley Armstrong always delivers though – I REALLY need to catch up on her books soon. She’s like a little machine, putting out books so often 🙂

    • Yeah I kind of wish I hadn’t read it now, it took me days to try and get through it.

      Yes, I was kind of surprised when I got Masked Truth as a gift because I didn’t even know it was coming out! But it was good and I think you’d like it. I still need to read some of her books, I haven’t even read 13 yet!

  2. I’m glad you read The Masked Truth! I loved that one and I think it was partly because I was in a slump and it was just the book I needed to get me through it. I was hooked right from the start! I also liked the dictionary descriptions. They worked well with his parts!

I love comments! Feel free to leave one, and if it doesn't show up right away don't worry, I just have to approve it.
