The Prism Affect by J. Wint is the first book of The Skylight Series that sets the stage for a futuristic world in which science fiction and the supernatural merge. Jet has just arrived at Skylight University for his first year, and he is expecting to be an outcast just like he has always been -- thanks to his glowing eyes. He quickly learns about the unpleasant side effects of his rare condition and the fate that awaits him. But at the university, he can meet others who also have this condition, and Jet is determined to join forces with the others to learn more and find a way to fight fate. Jet will soon discover that the past -- and his future -- are way more complicated than he ever imagined.
J. Wint has created an entirely new universe set in the semi-distant future that is easy to believe and impossible to put down. I absolutely love when genre lines are blurred, and The Prism Affect is a perfect example of combining science fiction, mystery, supernatural, and action. Even athletics and technology make a fair appearance, as we are introduced to the newest, futuristic sport since Quidditch. As for the characters, Jet makes an amazing lead with his determined personality and traumatic past, but the supporting cast members are just as realistic, complex, and relatable as they advance through the labyrinth of the well-developed plot. Everything shifts with unforeseen twists that will certainly bring me back for the next book in the series.
