Arclight - Josin L. McQuein Read this review and much more on my blog, YA Fanatic.

I debated whether or not I should finish this book since I got it from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I didn't wanted to finish it because I started reading it at least 5 or 6 times but I never got past the first two pages. Isn't the start of the book very important? Shouldn't I want to grip it tighter and never let it go, at least not until I finish reading it? It didn't happen. And I kept hoping it will get better with time. The main reason I was persistent is that some of the bloggers I follow read it and gave it 3 or 4 stars. So I pushed myself. I wanted to like it but I just couldn't.

MC, or pretty much any other character in Arclight was like an Egyptian fresco painting where you can only see one side of the model. They were like cardboard cutouts with no heart or soul.

I went from thinking those Fade creatures were zombies, to ghosts, to Dementors and then it turn out they are in fact people. I'm not even sure they are human since I didn't finish it. They were the only thing that kept my attention this far but in the end it wasn't enough. It just wasn't. And I'm sorry I requested Arclight and it's going to get even lower rating. I'm really sorry because the author clearly had a great vision. It just wasn't for me.
