Victor and Eli started out as college roommates, bonding over both of them being brilliant, arrogant, lonely and ambitious. Together, they research the existence of EO's, ExtraOrdinary people - people with strange abilities. Research turns to experiments, experiments with dangerous consequences...

Ten years later, Victor escapes from prison. He has only one goal; find Eli and make him pay.

This book was fascinating from the very beginning. I really love how the story unfolds slowly and all the pieces come together in this engrossing and exciting way.

I especially love the characters in this. I like how there isn't really a clear line between who the good guy is and who the bad guy is. It makes things more interesting. I also loved the side characters, as I thought they were clear and had their own stories to tell, without taking up too much of the main storyline.

What I love most about this though, is that it isn't overcomplicated. The author has a very interesting plot and there's a lot we have to learn and understand, but it it's explained in a relatively simple way. Everything makes sense. I also like the little battle between religion and science, as I think things like that are really intriguing.

I would definitely recommend this to everyone. Even if you don't like paranormal books, I think this could be enjoyed by anyone.
