Loved: I have a confession.
My mom and I bought this series for my younger cousin’s birthday…I may or may not have read the first book before we wrapped it!
It remains one of my absolute favorite MG series. I love how Tal and Milla start out in two different worlds, completely distrusting of each other, and end up forming a strong friendship and alliance. Plus, Milla is a great kick-ass chick!
Learned: In a lot of little ways, this series has been a frequent source of inspiration. The idea for my first WIP came from a dream I had shortly after finishing one of the books. I like how each of Nix’s main characters is strong in his or her own way…yet in a way that’s at odds with the fellow MC. It creates a great push-and-pull dynamic that helps the characters grow into their own.
