Full review can be found on Delirious About Books
Another dystopian with a very intriguing and, I'm happy to say, unique premise of alternate dimensions. I find alternate dimensions to be such an interesting subject and even though it didn't go into great detail concerning the alternate Chicago, it was still captivating. This certainly has an original plot. The notion of Shades - how they live, what they can do - was enchanting.
I found the pacing uneven, and there were times throughout the book I didn't think I was going to finish it. The story slowed down and I was mildly bored with it. I just wanted it to "get on with it" so to speak. In the next percentage it picked up and I didn't want to put it down, then it would slow down again.
This isn't a perfect novel but it worth the read for the originality of it alone. It wont change your life, but as a standalone read it's one for those days you want to read something lighter and a satisfying ending.
