I wanted to give this author a try, but this will definitely be the only book. I tried but could not finish it.
The characters were absolutely clichee, sometimes the predictable descriptions made me cringe.
And the narrator made the whole thing even worse.
I listened to about 60% and then couldnt stand the sticky sweet draw between maggie and caleb anymore. i could not finish the book
There were good and inventive fantasy parts, but there was not enough background story of the aces. where came they from? what is their purpous etc
and every 5 minutes the same repetetive love confessions between caleb and maggie, they had to actually talk about their love all the time, because one could not feel it, no chemistry at all
some intentional similarities to twilight but not the magic of twilight
i am disappointed, all these high ratings at amazon com, where come they from?
I only finished the book because i already bought it nearly 1 year ago together with the 2nd book.
The story started interesting but continued predictable und the weak heroine made me suffer all the way long.
Emily either throws up or has tears in the eyes.
Too many not hot but clinical sex scenes, i would have prefered e deeper developement of the story.
Could have been a good story - pity.
i really liked the developement of the character. Pity, that the narrator is really weak. it took me hours to get used to the artificial and slow reading.
I really enjoyed this 2 book series,
The book starts a little slow but then gets better and better.
Dont miss it, among the best teen stories i have read.
I was surprised by the elaborated developement of the characters.
Also the fantasy story was profound with twists and turns. i really enjoyed the book.
It was even better than the first book. I heard the whole book in only one day.
Looking forward to other books of the author.
WOW This series now is part of my favourite YA novels.
Wonderfully developed characters, good story, heart wrenching love story.
This really is a difficult review.
I cannot remember having read a book in a long time which leaves me like this. i nearly hated kiera, but nevertheless couldn t put it down.
I just wanted to know,if and when her ugly game was revealed.
But the reader has to suffer a lot of guilt and weakness and guilt and weakness and..until finally resolve. I couldn t believe, how the story went on and on, so i kept on reading.
I still cannot understand, why the two guys liked her so much.
and now that its over - i have to read the 2nd book. i think i must be insane.
I have heard all 4 guardian books performed by julia whelan. the books are easy to hear and nicely written but what really makes them entertaining is the perfect and emotional reading of julia whelan.
the heartwarming emotional description of lennie`s sadness about her sisters death and the turbulences of her first love are just moving.
i could not stop listening
and julia whelan is one of the best readers i know, her lovely voice matches perfect with lennies character, she expresses her feelings and thoughts in a way you cannot resist.
it made me feel my first love and all its difficulties again
i really really loved it
