A blog dedicated to reviewing and promoting the books I love.
It's official, I hate this author for creating such a compelling and out-of-this-world novel. I mean that in an endearing and loving way. Half the year is gone and this is the first novel that I've read this year that was actually original and kept you guessing all though the ending, which is a cliff hanger (BOO!). Thank god I didn't pick this up when it released in November of last year.
The plot is so original and freeing that it's actually hard to express what I'm feeling at the moment. It starts out slow so we can get to know the characters and the why's of them being so close to each other. Then you get the rug swept from under you as you're introduced to this new world where magic is possible and of course Joclyn turns out to be special. That wasn't really a surprise yet amazingly it doesn't become the main focus of the story. Sure the magic does come all too easily to her, but what the heck it's a story, some things need to be like that for the story to move on.
Don't even get me started on describing Ryland. He's my new stalkee, for starters. He's, of course, gorgeous in every way imaginable, has cute dark brown curly hair and an AMAZING body. He's also caring, sweet and protective, though not to the point where it's smothering.
I can't really say much or I'll give the whole concept of the story away and spoilers of such a fantastic novel would be a waste. One last thought (this goes to the author), please don't make a love triangle out of this storyline! Pretty, pretty please! Unless an author knows how to articulate one it usually ends up ruining the plot and with me hating most of the characters.
