Stick with this book, you will not be diaspointed. Love, Adventure, Twists, new content! Great book!!
Initially I thought this was another twilight'ish book (which I liked but am over it) but it was far from it. The author wove a fantastic story that had undertones of Romeo and Juliet but wasn't so much a romance novel. It was just at truly unique story. It was hard to put down. I kept trying to figure out who Karou was and what her origin was. The end wasn't what you expected but didn't disappoint at the same time! Defintely would recommend.
This was one of the best books I have ever read/listened to! The story is fascinating and the writing is excellent. I also really liked all of the characters, especially the main female character. I definitely recommend this!
Gave a whole week to this book, Here and there trying to engage myself with the story.
It`s not the isn't creative. The universe and the characters are interesting, its just that i`m about to reach the last chapters and she still setting up the stage for some action to happen. Its just boring.
I would not recommend if your are looking for some dystopia, suspense or thriller. May engage teenage better, the ones that are twilight fans.
But if you are an mature reader you probably get bored.
If you like love stories and fantasy this would probably be your kind of book.
Audilbe.com definitely needs to come up with a separate category for romance novels disguised as si-fi or fantasy. If the novel contains a scene in which the heroine is forced by her friends to wear an evening gown that is much too revealing but she looks fabulous in it and then her one true love dances with her, its not science fiction.
I just couldn't get into it. The story is between chimeras & seraphim and as much as I enjoy fantasy, I just couldn't relate to these characters. If you like scifi, this is probably more your scene.
There wasn't anything wrong with the narration, it just wasn't a great story.
There is a follow-up, but I won't be reading/listening to it.
Don't waste your time.
This was a book I was not super into throughout but felt compelled to finish because it was somewhat interesting. There were a few questions early on that kept me listening because I wanted to know the answers. If not for them, I may have ditched earlier. Very different than the typical YA book. Odd places, scenarios, characters. Sometimes so odd I had a hard time relating but interesting enough so that I wanted to know more. I will not be getting the sequel though as I do not really care what happens to anyone :(
It would help a great deal if Audible would tell the customers what audience a book is written for: children, tweeners, teens, adult, etc.
Reviews and descriptions are too general and make it difficult to really know what you're buying. Seems like the "rave" reviews are "above the fold".
It would be interesting to know the average age of the book's readership.
Unfortunately, I would not have liked this book as a teenager, either.
