I'm delighted to say it's a 4-star book for me. A story that's fascinating as this one and has great character development gets the reader to enjoy every bit of it.

I am yet to read it but getting excited about it from all the posts and reviews I see. Can't wait to get to know Adam and Carly better as I learn their story. A romance between them is an added bonus!

I rated this book 4 out of 4 because of the fresh direction the author took it. Mutants and humans with super powers are not new concepts these days. With the ever growing interest in comic book heroes and the movies they star in, its no easy task to present something unique. But i believe Reign achieved something unique in this book.

Honestly i was a bit apprehensive about the incestuous feelings that were described at the start but i love how she took that and brought it full circle by giving a realistic explanation.

The bond that goes beyond motion between Carly and Adam is beautiful, like two organisms synced, moving together in an harmonious dance.

Another special moment was when Adam realized his adopted father was dead. The love he had suppressed and the desire he expressed to make things right (before he discovered his death), was very touching. All that goodness overtook the dark inside him till it was extinguished.

This was truly a captivating book.

I've been reading more sci-fi and romance than I used to, seeing as how there are a lot of others like me who have liked the book I think I'll give Opaque a read!

I am still reading this book but I love the storyline and how the author's character development is keeping me glued to the pages.
I will rate it when I am done reading but I will recommend the book for young adults.

Opaque is way out of my type of genres but with the interesting reviews about it and a lot of 4 stars, I will like to try it out.

I loved how original this book was. Adam really grew as a character and his relationship with Carly was definitely one of the highlights of reading the book. I love how unique everyone's abilities were too.

I just finished reading the book, and I love it. The highlight for me was Adam and Carly's relationship. I did not like the merger of Dauma to Carly. Though it gave Carly more power, I was not ready for her mom to leave the story. The book was engaging, and I loved everything about it. I am giving this book 3 out of 4.

:no-spoil: I have not had the opportunity to read this book therefore I cannot provide a rating at this time.Maybe a review would have been helpful in an effort to explain what this book is about, the genre and the central characters.

I enjoyed this book a lot. I could relate to Adam's and Carly's characters in different ways. I enjoyed the character development of Adam and his relationship with Carly. Some of the scenes did not seem to fit in YA genre. Still, I think it is a book which deserves full rating.

I would rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I really enjoyed reading the story and I'm happy to say that I could not put the book down once I started reading it. I would definitely recommend it to teenagers and young adults.
