Entanglement by Dan Rix

This is a book I got as a freebie from Amazon one that is a good story and worth it even if it was a little confusing. It's a dystopian romance where everyon is born on the same day at the exact same time as one other person their half. Halves are introduced on their eighteenth birthday. In the rare cases a child is born without a half they are born a stillborn, that is in all cases except one.

Entanglment follows Aaron Harper a seventeen year old boy who, unlike the rest of the kids his age, is dreading his eighteenth birthday. Something is wrong with his clairvoyance channel which may interfere with bonding with his half. Once he meets Amber he starts dreading his birthday for an entirely different reason.

I started this book with really high hopes seeing as I'm a romantic at heart and anything with true love and ment to be loves is right up my alley. However this book was good but not as good as I was expecting it to be. It had a very narrow focus, jumpy narrative, and several unanswered questions.

The book is written in third person yet it follows Aaron extremly closely and it doesn't really allow you to learn much about most of the supporting characters with select  exceptions.

Speaking of supporting characters where most of the characters are seventeen parents are almost entirely lacking.

The ending leaves you with several questions but no answers.

It was a great premise that was attempted in a moderatly good book. I still recomend it but with reservations.
