My Thoughts

 

 

I really liked Gray and Skylar, loved that they had a age difference with the girl older than the guy.  After all, this is something I can get behind, since I'm six years older than my husband.  I will recommend this series as a whole, just on quick wit alone, that is Noelle August, aka writing team Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger.  They have a writing style that is fresh and engaging.  That's not bogged down with an over abundance of overly descriptive sex scenes.  I just wish they had more for me to read.

 

Will I read more from this AuthorYes, I would.  I'm wondering if I would like Veronica Rossi's YA stuff now???

Book Theme Song

(link will take you to my tumblr post with video)

Just Give Me A Reason by P!nk --Paul's a little broken, but I think Marguerite can fix him…

Just give me a reason, just a little bit's enough

Just a second we're not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again

It's in the stars, it's been written in the scars on our hearts

We're not broken just bent, and we can learn to love again

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜ 

4.2/5 STARS

GRADE=B+

 

My Thoughts

 

The action in this is non-stop…Marguerite flits from one parallel universe to another…oh the places she goes...  

 

 

Always chasing her other self, or Wicked, as she names her other self from whichever universe is the bad one (I can't remember the name of it).  If only Marguerite could have been a little less whiny, I don't know if it's the way she's written or just the narrator's voice, but I was ready for this book to end.   Overall, this was a satisfying end to the series.  With plenty of drama, intense action scenes, smoochy love & stuff, and even some clones (that's clones not clowns) thrown in, it is thoroughly entertaining.

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

Alive by Adelitas Way  --This is for Alainn and Lorccan…I searched for awhile on the internet looking at all sorts of songs and then decided to listen to my own songs and found this one, I thought…this is perfect!!!  This song actually makes me like this story a little more than I already did.

 

♫And I'll be hanging on every word you say to me.

Hanging on a feeling that I get,

'Cause you make me

Laugh a little louder,

Love a little harder.♫

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

I really liked this, is it without faults, no, but the faults did not take away from my overall enjoyment.

The writing starts out a little choppy, but evens itself out for the most part, about a 1/3 of the way through.  At least I think it did…or I could have just adjusted to the style.  I liked the futuristic aspect of this, it just doesn't always come off as believable.  There are elements that transpire that seem over-the-top and hard to fathom but, ultimately the sweet love story of Alainn and Lorccan is what kept me reading.  Plus, the oddly weird, but mostly likable assortment of supporting characters…especially the monkeys.  I loved the monkeys!

⇝Sex Factor⇜  This is a Beauty and the Beast spin for the adult crowd, while it is explicit at times it's not overdone at all.

My Thoughts

 

First Impressions:  The title and the cover are super awesome…and the synopsis is too.  I have a thing for parallel universes…

 

This didn't exactly live up to my first impressions.  While mostly entertaining, you just have to not think too deeply about it all, otherwise it's sort of unbelievable or just off kilter-ish.   The science of it wasn't always easy to follow, but I comprehended well enough most of the time.  The Nox…those monsters were freaky crazy, maybe too crazy…

 

 

The narration wasn't bad it's just narrated by the same girl as The Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray and it threw me off because they have similar plot lines.

Sex Factor:  While mentioned, there is no actual explicit sex going on.

My Thoughts

 

If you're looking for something that's not too emotional with a little bit of angst, then this could be the one for you.  It’s a tough subject, done well, but with no over the top emotional stuff.  There is a lack of true depth to the characters, which left me feeling a little Meh about them overall.  But that is my most definable objection with this.  Oh…and I didn't really care for the guy narrator, his voice just didn't click with me.

Sex Factor:  Yes, there is some.  Not too overly explicit.
