Stel Alaster life revolves around the corridor. 17 years ago it appeared and it is the only portal to a parallel version of her world, First Earth. 

The Mods, who are humans with special powers are feared by those on First Earth because of this they are captured, branded and detained in Corridor laboratories. 

Stel is hiding a dangerous secret; she is a mod that can open a portal to not only Second Earth but other parallel universes.  But when the corridor begins to fail, Stel must risk it all, with the help of a escaped Mod and a boy from a third universe, in order to save the family she thought she knew. 

*Love the cover*

 

This was a tough read because the idea of this book is wonderful but Stel was an issue for me.

Stel is at a point in her life she doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life. But it isn’t just that. She doesn’t know what she wants to do with anything. Her relationship with her “best friend” her relationship with her brother or even her relationship with her dad in part. I say in part because everything in this book is about her dad. I am all for strong relationships with the parents but she has built her entire life around her father that she doesn’t have a life any where else.

She is constantly throwing mix signals and she isn’t the brightest star in the sky. Not only does she disregard the obvious signs literally thrown in her face in regards to her brother but she also doesn’t care to learn more about herself and her power.

I also didn’t like the fact that she really lead the boy of interest on and kept throwing him away like something was complicating things. -.-

However, what I did like was the fact that the author was able to incorporate twists into the novel very smoothly. There was some predictability but overall the author was able to create a balanced story, that led to engagement i.e. completely the entire book with emotion other than a blank stare.

Overall, I thought the book was okay. Some people may enjoy it a lot more than me but I am very particular about characters and predictability within characters.  I am not sure if I will read the second book. If I do I am hoping for huge character development in Stel.
