I really liked this book! I thought Cali's power was just super cool and really interesting.
Cali was a great character! She was very likable, and her character development? Wow! It was amazing! I felt so bad for Cali sometimes, the thing with her parents and her current situation, but really, she's very strong and independent. As for the other Cal...I adored him! He was very protective, sweet, totally swoon-worthy, and a yummy bad-boy! *swoons*
The plot itself was really interesting too. Even though some aspects of the story reminded me of Marina's Tales, Derrolyn sure has a way of pulling emotions out of me! Hate, for example, is a common one. I love books with emotion, and that is one of the reasons why I love Derrolyn's writing!
The creeper doctor dude...total creeper! And he made me so very frustrating. He was practically harassing Cali and I just wanted to punch him in the neck! Cali's aunt and the aunt's BF were very frustrating too. The aunt was never around and totally ignorant. And the BF was also harassing Cali...ugh! He made me sick!
I wonder what other craziness ('cause I KNOW the crazy creeper doctor and his creepy crazy guard aren't done with Cali yet) Cali will have to go through. I am so glad she has Cal at her side though!
If you have read and loved Derrolyn's other series, Marina's Tales, but have not had the chance to read The Athena Effect yet, well, you should get on it! You will definitely enjoy this read!
