When Corinne finds the people around her suddenly acting strange, her and her best friend Ang strive to find out why. Their suspicions soon turn to a mysterious box that was left for Corinne by her recently deceased grandmother. Thus begins the story of Pyxis.
The first installment in a sure-to-be captivating series, Neal has a very natural flow of writing. Her descriptive narration makes this original tale one that you won’t be able to put down. The development between Corinne and her best guy friend, Mason, is a classic will-they/won’t-they scenario; made all the more intriguing when he is roped into their mysterious search. The trio slowly uncovers more about all that surrounds the box and what Corinne’s grandmother never had a chance to share with her before she died.
Admittedly, I was first drawn to the book because of the gorgeous cover and now upon having read it, it doesn’t quite reflect what I thought the book would be about. The story is much more modern and grounded in reality than the fantasy-like cover makes it out to be – and I like that.
