    Young Urban Fantasy Done Right

    I had no idea what to expect when I first started reading this book. A friend of mine told me that I'd enjoy it, and that the author was an awesome kind of guy. To be perfectly transparent, I've followed Daniel on Twitter and have had minimum correspondence with him - mostly telling him my impressions of this book. From the very opening chapters, I knew this book was going to be drastically different than most of the UF that I've read. It started with the normal elements: Urban Environment: Check Young Female Protagonist (YFP): Check Slightly Unusual but Easily Pronounceable name for the YFP: Check Apparent Single Parent: Check It was well on it's way to looking like most YA UF out there today. Then it took a radical change and mixed things up, by changing one key factor. The YFP that is center stage is named Sierra. Okay, slightly strange, but workable... then you realize that Sierra isn't white! In fact as the story progresses you realize, that as far as this story is told the typical Caucasian protagonist isn't anywhere to be seen. Sierra comes from a Puerto Rican background and the culture that she's grown up in is clearly SHOWN via a number of methods, from the food that is eaten, to the combination of different (but familiar) languages. Having a basic understanding of Spanish helps comprehension of this tale, but is in no way required. Sierra begins as an artist who has been pressured into doing a 5 story tall mural. Then later at a party weird things begins happening and she bugs out. When the weird things continue to happen, she starts to wonder what the heck is going on. She runs against numerous walls as she learns more about both current events as well as her family's secret history. Along the way she finds a wellspring of inner strength that she didn't know she had and this allows her to voice some harsh truths that have been avoided. Those truths once aired allow healing and recovery to begin. This was an amaizng delightful book and I look forward to the requisite sequel. However this book does an excellent job of completely a whole story line and can easily be read as a stand alone.

    Hottest Book of the Summer

    This book makes me want to explore Brooklyn! NYC is vibrant and beautiful as the setting to this magical story. I can't get the characters out of my head. Finished this book in a single afternoon and I definitely want more!
