Mystic City

Mystic City - So I am going to try to review this without giving anything away. I really liked this book and would up the stars to 4.5 if I could (hint, hint Goodreads).Ok - Aria is the main character and wakes up from an overdose of stic not remembering that she has fallen in love with one of her family's biggest enemies...Thomas Foster. There is definitely a Romeo and Juliet feeling to the story...however, Aria's family seems to embrace the relationship and they band together to create a more powerful partnership. There are a bunch of other things going on with this part of the story but I don't want to give anything away. Enter Hunter and Turk - both are unregistered Mystics and rebels. This is all I really want to say about the actual story as I don't want to give anything away.With that said, I did like a number of the characters in this book...I also was annoyed with some. Hunter and Turk are my favorites...I don't know that we got enough time with either of them (in my opinion) and I am hoping that is resolved at a future time. Aria and her friends bothered me. First, I just wanted Aria to figure it out already...It felt like her not getting what was going on was drawn out too long - I kept wondering why she wasn't connecting things. Her friends were just plain annoying - maybe that fits based on the breakdown of the societies in the book but ugh - I didn't like Kiki at all.I was definitely interested in learning more about Aria's brother too - I feel like there is a story there and am curious. We didn't get to see a lot of what was going on with him but there was definitely something.All in all, this was a very good read. I couldn't seem to put it down and I enjoyed how Lawrence was able to deconstruct NYC into levels. If you enjoy dystopian, angst and a little bit of paranormal, you will enjoy this book.
