The Rush by Rachel Higginson

therushUltimately, I gave this novel 4 out of 5 stars. I wavered between three and four because there were several typos and grammatical errors in the Kindle version which really irritated me. (Although I shouldn’t talk because I am the queen of such errors myself.)

This story got really good towards the end. I’ll admit it took me some time to get into it. There was so much needless foreshadowing. The book says is part of a Siren series, we knew from the beginning so this constant oh woe is me routine about her curse really didn’t need to be so irritating. However, I whipped through the last 100 pages when more came out about Nix and his role in all the drama.

I really like the Ryder character, brilliantly done. Although I think there should probably be more of a back story on his family. How could his uncle and dad be affected by Ivy but he not be affected? Also it seemed really insane to me when Kenna broke up with Ryder. The way that bit of detail played out just didn’t seem right at all.

Regardless, I give this 4 stars and I will read the next in the series. Gotta see what happens with ‘Red’ and Ryder.
