I fell in love with “The Almost Girl” shortly after I started it. I loved the concept of the parallel worlds and the tech war. I would love to see a prequel book.
The characters are great. I really loved Riven! Her attitude, strength, and determination made her a great heroine! Cale and Caden are wonderful as well. I do wish that we would have gotten more time in Neospes before Riven jumped. But what we did get via flash backs worked out well.
The story itself was amazing! Normally flash backs slow the story, but in this book it didn't. It moved the story right along and gave me some much needed information about their world. The story is a fast paced blend of science fiction and dystopian. It was very hard to put down this book and do other things!
This is a MUST READ!
Seventeen-year-old Riven comes from a world parallel to Earth, a world that has been ravaged by a devastating android war. As a Legion General, she is the right hand of Prince Cale, the young Prince of Neospes. In her world, she's had everything: rank, responsibility, and respect. But when Prince Cale sends her away to rescue his long-lost brother, Caden, who has been spirited to modern day Earth, Riven finds herself in uncharted territory.
Armed with the mindset of a soldier and racing against time to bring Caden home, Riven must learn how to blend in as a girl in a realm that is the opposite of all she's ever known. Will she be able to find the strength to defy her very nature? Or will she become the monstrous soldier she was designed to be?
