{eARC Minute Review} The Corridor (The Corridor #1) by A.N. Willis

The Corridor (The Corridor, #1)
Infinite worlds. Endless possibilities . . .

Stel Alaster has never known life without the Corridor. It appeared suddenly seventeen years ago, the only portal to a parallel version of our world—Second Earth. Everyone on First Earth fears Mods, the genetically modified Second Earthers who built the Corridor. They are too smart, too strong, and have powers that can’t be controlled. Any Mod found on First Earth is branded, then detained in the Corridor’s research labs.

Only Stel has a dangerous secret. She has a power, too: She can open a portal to Second Earth . . . and several other parallel universes she’s discovered. If anyone ever finds out, she’ll be imprisoned, no better than a Mod or common lab rat.

But when the Corridor starts to fail, emitting erratic bursts of energy that could destroy First Earth, Stel must risk everything to save the people and world she loves. With the help of an escaped Mod and an infuriatingly arrogant boy from a third universe, Stel sets out to unravel the mysteries of the Corridor and stabilize it before it’s too late. The fate of every world lies in the balance. . . .

First, the cover? Awesome.

The Corridor is a fast paced, quick read, with a very interesting concept of the Corridor and the worlds the Corridor bridges.

Stel was a good heroine. She was a normal girl one minute and then very not normal the next. I felt for Stel's struggles, the weight on her shoulders, having to balance what her father needs and what the world needs her, and feeling so alone and overwhelmed. As if that isn't enough there's a boy, well two, thankfully it doesn't turn into a love triangle but it's still a complication.

The Corridor has a couple of good twists and ends with an OMG shocker that left me desperate for the next book in the Corridor series.
