Amanda Hawking does an excellent job of drawing emotions from her readers. Though the prose were lacking, I found myself caught up in the Peter/Jack love triangle. So much so that I've bought the second book. My only gripe is that instead of calling on her own creativity, which I think Amanda has plenty of, she instead borrows from the Twilight series a little too often. It wasn't over the top borrowing, but still noticeable. Overall, I'd give this a four star for the entertainment factor and her ability to draw me into the world.
