Review: Two Sinful Secrets

November 12, 2013

Amazon

 

Two Sinful Secrets is a sexy page turner that will keep you on the edge of your seat!

Laurel is a skillful and talented storyteller, I couldn’t get enough, turning the pages in a frenzy to see how the plot would develop. Interesting main characters who are great together, and a not so typical story made this book special in my opinion. I won’t give away much about the plot line, but  you never know what might happen next.

I wanted more from the secondary characters, but since this is the first book in the series, I look forward to the sequels. You won’t find a huge cliffhanger by the ending, don’t worry, but you’ll want more for the fun of it.  

McKee crafted a highly pleasurable reading experience.

Review: Stitch by Samantha Durante

Stitch 

(Stitch Trilogy #1)

by Samantha Durante

YA Dystopian

Her heart races, her muscles coil, and every impulse in Alessa’s body screams at her to run… but yet she’s powerless to move.

Still struggling to find her footing after the sudden death of her parents, the last thing college freshman Alessa has the strength to deal with is the inexplicable visceral pull drawing her to a handsome ghostly presence. In between grappling with exams and sorority soirees – and disturbing recurring dreams of being captive in a futuristic prison hell – Alessa is determined to unravel the mystery of the apparition who leaves her breathless. But the terrifying secret she uncovers will find her groping desperately through her nightmares for answers.

Because what Alessa hasn’t figured out yet is that she’s not really a student, the object of her obsession is no ghost, and her sneaking suspicions that something sinister is lurking behind the walls of her university’s idyllic campus are only just scratching the surface…

The opening installment in a twist-laden trilogy, Stitch spans the genres of paranormal romance and dystopian sci-fi to explore the challenges of a society in transition, where morality, vision, and pragmatism collide leaving the average citizen to suffer the results.

→ Opinion | Stitch had a very original concept, but it lacked  character development and a more balanced plot structure.

I’m sad that there is very little romance to talk about. I couldn’t connect with Isaac, we had very little time inside his mind.  I wish we could’ve seen the moment where they fell in love, or that the author made them fall in love again. I sense that love will play a big part in the future, but we were only allowed to see a glimpse of it.

The story begins very slow paced with only tiny developments in the story till we reach chapter 22. By then there’s only 40% of the book left, and that’s when things get interesting. A lot of questions weren’t proposed and most of the ones who did weren’t answered. I expected more from this first book in the trilogy. i wanted more sci-fi The prose was good though, I was curious enough to read it till the end.

I enjoyed that we had a mild closure, a conclusion without a cliffhanger, but a satisfying one.

This debut has a great potential, but unfortunately, is overshadowed by a lot of elements that didn’t quite work out. The next installments in this series can be very promising if the same errors don’t happen again. This series deserves to have it’s chance to shine!

Review: Poison Princess by Kresley Cole

October 28, 2012
All Afternoon with a Scandalous Marquess

Poison Princess

(The Arcana Chronicles, #1) 

by Kresley Cole

 

October 2nd 2012 by Simon & Schuster
  • Amazon B&N Book Depository
  • Sixteen year old Evangeline “Evie” Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future—and they’re still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.

But she can’t do either alone.

With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can’t totally depend on Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?

Who can Evie trust?

As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of twenty-two teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side….

→ Opinion | Fascinating!

Probably my favorite book this year! Kresley Cole always does a magnificent job with her books, and with this new series she couldn’t go wrong.

Poison Princess is a Supernatural Romance adventure that grows to show this post apocalyptic world while exploring the tarot cards mythology. The world building was fantastic, and the plot was very impressive as well.

There is an incredible development already in this first book, and loved the funny lines here and there. They made all the difference  since it’s one of the author’s most specific characteristics. The tone was very dark, which fit this story well and make us understand where these characters were coming from, see through their eyes. I can’t wait for the next installment!

I’m already addicted.

This book was bought by me and there was no review agreement with the author or publisher.
