The main character in this story was really annoying. She was either in trouble or crying at any point in the book. And also, it seemed like the book kind of jumped off into fairy tale mode from almost nothing, no real history behind it. First a normal girl, then suddenly she runs off to Lala Land without a second thought. It could have been much better.
Awesome Young Adult!
I have a touch and go relationship with the young adult genre. As someone that grew up with the Fear Street books as their prime source of reading for that age group I find that everyone now a days is trying to write the next great epic Young Adult book, or writing about all those serious teenage issues like “Mean Girls”, “eating disorders”, “cutting”, and the “gay issue”. I am in full support of us bringing those issues to the for front, however, when I was in high school before I moved on to bigger authors like Anne Rice, Stephen King, and James Patterson, I was an avid fan of books that I just enjoyed. Books that made me bite my nails, books I could read in a few days R.L. Stine and Annette Curtis Klaus come to mind instantly. They were quick, interesting reads and they always left me wanting more.
Therefore, Interim Blue quickly became a Young Adult fantasy book that I totally enjoyed. There wasn’t a forward romance, there wasn’t any of that obvious formula that is in so many of the Young Adult books today Example: “Girl meets mysterious boy, girl falls instantly in love with boy, then girl meets the token bad boy and is sexually intrigued but pulls away in favor of said controlling mysterious boy.” There was NONE of that nonsense going on in Interim Blue. It was a story, a great story with a new twist on the Fae realm, (which I have to admit I have a soft spot for).
I went off and on with my like of the heroine Shade. I mean to her credit she reacted to the situation as I expected most teenagers would. Teens are for the most part selfish and no matter what anyone says they just are. They are in a state of hormonal chaos and have to deal with that in their own way. I love how there was no ‘falling in love at first sight’ situation with her. There was the implied notion that she may be in direct contact with her Soulmate but the story told true where she didn’t just fall at the feet of any male in the story. The men in the story all made me want then in an adult romance so I could see them in naughty situations, but hey, I’m an adult and would have loved to get me a piece of Dylan.
I will for sure be reading the next book in this series. It was original, it was an enjoyable read, and I found myself biting my nails and cheering for Shade in the end.
