This was a very interesting read. It began quite serious with a tinge of humor. From there things just went sideways. A successful executive on her way to a promotion winds up meeting family she never knew she had and is told that she is something that shouldn’t exist. From there things get interesting. There is some world development, but not as much as you would expect from a series so off the wall. It is interesting how the author manages to balance character development and world building so that you sort of feel like there wasn’t enough of either. I am interested enough to explore the next book in this series, and honest enough to admit I love that she breaks all of the rules on accident. This was described as Stephanie Plum meets Harry Potter, this first book did not eventuate that level of humor but I can see the faintest beginnings. Note: If you don’t want to read the second book don’t read the Epilogue.
