It was OK. The first 100 pages were a bit slow, and you could see the duct-tape holding the plot points together. Then the second 100 pages were awesome, and it was all the kind of stuff about teenagers realizing their powers that I love. Then the end was just OK--kind of drawn out and overcomplicated and a bit too sweeping for my tastes. But I'd read more books by this author, if he does any.
