Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart - invincible, immortal, unconquerable - is dead. And he died by David's hand.Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers.Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though.

IT WAS INCREDIBLE! It managed to each all my expectations and just kept on going! Love, I loved it!!

The characters are amazing, the story and plot are great! I was always kept guessing; at moments I was POSITIVE one thing would happen, everything was thrown on its head and BAM!!! Unexpected awesomeness commenced!

I love the humour and found myself laughed out loud and smiling like a dork all the time well ready this book.

It was EPIC!

With her trademark lyricism, Maggie Stiefvater turns to a new world, where a pair are swept up in a daring, dangerous race across a cliff—with more than just their lives at stake should they lose.

It was a great adventure story.....
BUT SO LACKING IN THE ROMANCE DEPARTMENT!!😭

I wouldn't suggest any girl or .. Boy😏.. Whose into strictly romance should read this book.. Just cause you likes The Shiver Trilogy by the same author, that doesn't mean this would suit it. It's more of the adventure type of story, like I said, it lacks romance. 😟

I am a big Alex Flinn fan! I've reread beastly and a kiss in time each at least 3 times!! And I'm a HUGE fan of retold fairy tails so I was very excited for this book!

But I found it to be:.. A bit doll and also totally random and messed up.
For one, the romance was horrible! You know I'm the old diseny princess movies, how they meet and two seconds later they are in love... That's exactly how it happens in the book!😐 not cool man!

And than there's th hole drugs circle thing... Like whaaaaat?
I really didn't like how they handled the whole boy meets girl, and how they just magically can hear each other.. Seems a bit much.

But I have to admit here were are some good parts..
I likes the whole mystery, the dead daughters journal holds secrets.

I suppose there are some good things about the book... But I'd sooner suggest you go reread Beastly or a Kiss in time rather than buying Towering.. It was okay but I kinda wish I didn't bother listenig to it!

With the Republic edging closer to chaos, the two join a group of Patriot rebels eager to help Day rescue his brother and offer passage to the Colonies.

But as June realizes this Elector is nothing like his father, she’s haunted by the choice ahead. What if Anden is a new beginning?

The first novel was my favorite book, and this was also one of my favorites! I'd say give it a try, if your into YA and dystopian you'll love it! This book is sooooo good!!

Artemis Fowl’s archenemy Opal Koboi has masterminded a way to simultaneously secure her release from prison and bring the human and fairy worlds to their knees. And, unless Artemis can stop her, the evil pixie’s next move will destroy all human life on Earth. Ground zero is the Fowl Estate, where Opal has reanimated fairy warriors who were buried there thousands of years ago. Their spirits have possessed any vessels they can find - corpses, Artemis’s little brothers, assorted wildlife - and they are bound to obey Opal’s every command. Defeating the motley troops and their diabolical leader will require all of Artemis’s cleverness.

"I was told to beware the accursed spindle, but it was so enchanting, so hypnotic. I was looking for a little adventure the day I ditched my tour group. But finding a comatose town, with a hot-looking chick asleep in it, was so not what I had in mind. I awakened in the same place but in another time – to a stranger’s soft kiss."

I loved this book because unlike so many romance books, this one was funny. It made me laugh when the two main characters were made at each other, and it made me smile when Jack was think how cute the Princess is. This book kept you wanting more and i loved it untill about the last chapter... it wasnt a bad ending it just wasnt what i hoped for! I suggest listening to it! :)
