Confusing plotline.

This was such a unique story with many nooks and crannies! I think the only fault was that it was maybe a bit long, but the main characters and storyline kept me reeling. ( )

Even though I was immensely attracted to the witchy cover vibes of this novel, I kind of expected not to like it. So many horror books are either too scary or are a total let down in their treatment of the occult (which is obviously what I'm there for), but Middlegame gets you hooked with the characters and plot before you can even fixate on the other aspects of the story! The tale centres around genetically modified twins Roger and Dodger (ugh, I know, their rhyming names are a bit of a throwaway) who are separated at birth so that they can later manifest world-controlling abilities. Again, not necesarily a story that I would immediately buy into, but the concept of the universe being controlled by binary elements is a strong theme when combined with the concept of them manifesting through semi-human constructs whose normalcy and humanity ends up saving them in the end. McGuire spends the majority of the story exploring Roger and Dodger's lives and we only see them begin their journey down the Improbably Road to the Impossible City in the last 100 or so pages (totalling a mere 20% of the novel). Arguably, their journies towards and away and towards eachother in infinite loops of semi-avoidable inevitability are also a part of the path, but their not knowing and natural growth is what makes the story believable and engaging. Their seemingly random acts to avoid their "destiny" wind up being the correct scenario to finish the battle against the alchemists who created them and seek to control their power, which ties up the story neatly by the finale, even while wea re on the edge of our seats until the very bitter end. An engaging read from page one, whether you're in it for the action or the characters! ( )

More like 3.5. One of those books that's so imaginative and unique and a slow-dawning of realizing what's happening...and I never want to read it again. I'm not one for horror and this had too much for my liking. Trigger warnings galore. ( )

A twisted, dark coming-of-age story about a set of nearly human twins - there is dark alchemy, time loops, very creepy evil characters, and strange powers of mental telepathy. A very creative novel about very old themes. ( )

Satisfying on all levels of the reading experience: thrilling, emotionally resonant, and cerebral. Escape to Witch Mountain for grown-ups.
