I enjoyed the mystery in this book. It was a very suspenseful book with a lot of things you didn't see coming. SYLO had a huge range of characters and personalities. The "heroes" are just teenagers, the curious and suspicious ones on the island who pay attention to detail. It was funny how many coincidences there were, especially the way they were brought together.
I also liked the little things, like how the TV just turned on randomly. It is these little details that put the book together. I liked the ending, and how much of a cliffhanger it was. Every chapter was a cliffhanger, which was good. The cover art is also amazing. It screams to me, "Read this book!"
I highly recommend this book, and I cannot wait to read the next book, Storm.
