In this book, there are special people in the world who go throught the world without attracting any kind of notice from others. They are unable to leave an impression on anyone, even their parents. They are called Nobodies, and they make the perfect assassins. This is how Nix was raised, and he is sent to kill Claire. She happens to be the only person who can notice him, when no one else can. She’s grown up knowing that she’s not normal, but her encounter with Nix shows her just how abnormal she really is.
The plot owes a great big debt to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and a few others; but I don’t think that it took away from the enjoyment of the story. The character development is strong enough to make it unique and exciting.
