About book Mystic City (2012)

I had to force myself to finish it. It's been really a long time since I read such a lame and boring story. I was going to give it one star only, but, well... the whole idea about the flood was indeed kind of original, even though it was so easy to forget, as the author kept distracting the reader with all those Romeo/Juliet parts that wasn't even that realistic and the main character sounded like a four-year-old most of the time... This story had a lot of potential, but it got lost on the way. LIKES: It had a very interesting premise. Two "mafia" type families. Mysterious memory loss. Star-crossed lovers. Futuristic New York City. What's not to love, right?!DISLIKES: The setting was not properly worked out. It was set sometime in the future when global warming has taken over and people with mystical powers have made themselves known. Everyone can pay for items through their fingerprints, not needing to carry money. But texting and tweeting was still referenced. What? 100-150 years in the future and we are still tweeting? I think not.The love story was not believable. Not to mention that the male lead had no kind of continuity. He would act and talk one way in one chapter, and completely different in the next. I could not get a beat on his personality. The magic system was not explained and was completely random. There was no method to the madness. You can see the twists coming from a mile away. The "big twist" is easily seen from the readers perspective in the first 10 or so chapters, and it still takes the main character until the last 50 pages to figure it out herself....OVERALL, the story had a lot of potential, but didn't live up to it. I do not plan on continuing this series.
