In the Here & Now, anything is possible. Alyson continues to amaze me with the beauty of her world. Imagine if you could conjure or wish for anything you want. Sounds great right? But Riley’s just going through the motions no matter how perfect everything seems. After she’s sent on her first assignment, a mission that returns her to earth, the pages started to fly. I ate this book up in all of its goodness. This book is a fun and entertaining read that I finished in just a few hours. I’m glad I was able to visit Riley again. I enjoyed the introductions of the new characters in the Here & Now. Bodhi, Riley’s guide was more than the typical geek that he was portrayed as. I enjoyed his interactions with Riley. The constant bouts between these two had had me laughing it up.
RADIANCE is a YA book geared toward middle grades. The characters are believable and exhibit all of the characteristics of the middle grade age range. Noel did an excellent job making these characters come to life.
If you are a fan of Noel’s Immortal Series, I do believe that you will enjoy this spin-off. And if you’re like me and you enjoyed Riley in EVERMORE and wanted more, then you’ll want to grab this book to see what’s really going on in Riley’s world. RADIANCE definitely proves to be a satisfying start to an exciting new series.
