To me, Celia West acts like the non-powered child of two hugely famous superheroes should. She's insecure, she rebels by working for their arch nemesis... You know, the usual. I thought the love story worked and I was surprisingly affected by a death late in the novel. Celia's voice was entertaining and I loved how she was able to contribute to the fight against evil.
I took away one star because even I could tell who the mastermind of the evil plot was going to be, thanks to some very ham-fisted foreshadowing. I'm terrible at guessing who the bad guy is, and I got it pretty quickly.
