Evenfall (In the Company of Shadows, #1)

Evenfall (In the Company of Shadows, #1) - Santino Hassell,  Ais 3,5 stars but I’m having a Boyd moment over rounding them up or down, so the rating might change.Many reviewers have already covered everything that needed to be said about the length, the repetitions, the wordiness, so I won’t dwell on them. It’s a little tedious sometimes but it doesn’t ruin the book, in my (and many others’) opinion. The authors created engaging characters, living in a dystopian world I never once questioned.This story is a lot like Sin and Boyd : a little bit too much sometimes, overanalyzing, imperfect but talented at the same time, intriguing, exciting and sexy, full of potential.Despite his insufferable inner monologues and obvious flaws, I’m seriously considering adopting Boyd! I’m not saying I like him more (don’t kill me, I want to read the series!) but as much as I got excited over Sin’s exploits, I often wondered : “wow, is he for real?!” Also, according to m/m readers’ standards, Sin never fucks up and that makes me want to stand by Boyd even when I want to throttle him.Most of all, they excelled in building tension and thus creating a good anticipation story. Evenfall is overall captivating and generous. It gives a lot of action, a lot of characters to grow attached to, a lot of possibilities to mull over, a lot of story lines to get interested in.I had so much fun getting anxious, frustrated, relieved, frustrated again and anticipating the next developments!Obviously, I’m hooked and looking forward to being crushed by Afterimage.
