Vesper is a really interesting debut to a sure to be awesome series.
The first noticeable thing about Vesper was the readability. The moment I opened the page and read Emily's transcript I was hooked and almost finished the book in one sitting (I didn't because I had to sleep). It was easy to read and not too long or short. There could have been more details but it was mysterious and never boring.
The story is about Emily's transformation between regular girl to Nighttime Emily who's a total wild child after the other Emily, Emily C. is killed by a bullet. What's causing this transformation is the main sort of conflict and I was just as stumped as Em was. Emily is a likable character. She was a bit scared of people but she was genuinely cool and funny. Nighttime Emily was awesome. She was crazy and a risk taker but she never went too far. She was clever. Both Emilys together made an even better girl who was thoughtful but daring.
The mystery of the story revolved about Emily's transformation. During the transcripts we'd get brief little clues as to what was happening. I love this way of telling the story- you know there is a bigger picture and you get little clues that help you figure it out but everything is revealed only in the grand finale. There were many surprises while reading Vesper and it was fun.
Overall, a quick fun read full of mystery, action, and a bit of friendship. Vesper debuts a series to keep your eyes on. All it was missing was some answers. 3 stars,
