I burned through this book like lightning (though it's also pretty short--less than 300 pgs) and actually really enjoyed it; it's my favorite so far of the mountain of teen girl meets the paranormal that I've been sifting through lately. Which is sad, because I LOVE teen girls meeting the paranormal, but most of them just take too many pages from Twilight, unfortunately, whereas this one does not. The protagonist actually has a personality: she's fun and flawed, her actions have consequences, and her love interest is atypical, too. Sure, he's handsome (I'm not going to begrudge handsomeness in fantasy, ever), but he's not a prop and he's not creepy. Understand, I don't even mind creepy love interests--all about them, actually--I just prefer them to be acknowledged AS creepy. And the antagonist in this story, whom Madison did kiss at one point, is absolutely acknowledged as such. Enjoyable stuff and a book I would recommend to teen girls looking for YA fantasy that doesn't insult their intelligence.
It's not without its flaws, though, mostly in that it was a little bit insubstantial: I liked the mythology, but I liked the passages where Madison was interacting with her community and taking photographs just as much. The end is definitely a bit of a convoluted info-dump as well, but ... I don't know, man. It's a fun read and if there's more, I'm on board.
