MY REVIEW

 

I remember when I first saw Stitch, Book I of the Stitch Trilogy by Samantha Durante. I had to have it! I fell in love with the story and the characters and have patiently waited as each book became available, then devoured it.

 

The Engineers manufactured world is the total opposite of the dystopian world of poverty and desolation the rebels live in. Myself, I love rooting for the underdog and the rebels need my help. Here I come guys.

 

I love that Alessa and Isaac act together, but what about Joe? I think he will be playing a very important part in the story, I just won’t be able to tell you about it. LOL

 

“Poor bugger got stuck.”

 

And the monsters were born!

 

Extermination, extinction, a virus, the end of the world, a man-made apocalypse, secrets, unlikely allies, and a very special girl.

 

This is one of those books that gets my motor running into overdrive. The elite feel they are  the be all end all and to hell with everybody else. OMG! I knew the evil bastards would do something, but I didn’t see that coming. Could it be true?

 

The writing of the trilogy took place over a five year time span. I think it would have been better if I went back and read the series from the beginning and I will be doing that some time. I have a feeling it will change my rating.

 

That being said, once the previous books began to come to mind, I was able to bring myself up to date. The story became intense and I was happy to add Alex and Deion to my group of friends. I found it easy to get lost in their world, their struggles, their regrets, loss, hope and love. the writing made the story unfold as if I was watching it on the big screen.

 

As Samantha Durante brings the trilogy to a close, it brought tears to my eyes. I felt happy with the characters endings. BUT, man oh man, Joe…well, I saw that , and Lizzie, oh Lizzie…I can’t tell you any more without ruining it for you.

 

If you love having your emotions ramped up to a fever pitch, if you love white knuckled reading, if you love apocalyptic/dystopian novels and are looking for an original storyline, you may want to grab the Stitch trilogy.

An Exotic Island Filled With Horror – Child of Lies by Eric Kent Edstrom @ekedstrom
Child of Lies - Eric Kent Edstrom

 

 

The Scion Chronicles by Eric Kent Edstrom has been a wild ride so far and I am ready to dive into Child of Lies and travel to an exotic island that is filled with a horror you can’t imagine.

 

His books have blown my mind, so have a look and tell me what you think.

MY REVIEW

 

Jacey awoke…and remembered.
.

How would you feel if you were bred, raised, educated and trained only to have someone else’s mind taking over your body? They are clones. Sounds pretty freakin’ creepy to me! Unless you’re the other person. Old, decrepit, on your last leg, and death around the corner. A second chance at life.

 

Child of Lies raises many ethical and moral questions, not overlooking the legality of it all. Of course, it’s only for the rich, so you blue collar workers may as well forgeddaboutit.

 

Jacey was not going to let that happen. She felt responsible for everyone.

 

I loved how all the characters learned to overcome their differences and function as a team. Their knowledge grew, as did their personalities.

 

This ”what if’ story could very well give you nightmares. The tension and suspense made me want to look ahead, but I contained myself. No peeking.

 

I am so worried. More than once, Eric Kent Edstrom had me saying, “Oh no, no, no.” Leading me on , making me fear for them all, even the not very nice Belle. Maybe she will learn something and be the better for it.

 

Nature or nurture? Can your environment form who you are? Would a clone have a mind of its own? A personality of its own?

 

About two thirds of the way through Child of Lies I ran across a wonderful surprise and a ray of hope put a smile on my face.

 

Child of Lies by Eric Kent Edstrom picks up where Daughter of Nothing left off, so the series does not stand alone and each book should be read in order. It gripped me from beginning to end. I couldn’t put it down. Human nature and the worst circumstances show who we are and bring out the best or the worst in us.

 

To me this felt original, amazing and so creative and frightening that it stuck with me long after I finished reading. It runs the gamut that is good and bad about! humanity!

The Elite - Kiera Cass

OMG! I absolutely loved this book in the series. It was way better than the first book and gives more of an insight into Illea. I love America because she stands up for what she feels is right no matter what people think. I think she'll be perfect for Maxon and make a wonderful princess.

Under the Never Sky - Veronica Rossi

'm not really sure how I feel about this book. I liked Perry more than I did Aria. She was very annoying to me until the part where they reach Marron's. I was feeling like the book should have been more focused on Perry instead of Aria. The book was pretty average until about the last 80 pages. That's really when the book picked up for me and I ended up finishing it in like an hour. One thing I didn't like about this book was the lack of explanation for things I felt like where important. For example, The Aether and The Unity. I would really like to know exactly what the Aether is and where it comes from. I would also like to know what the Unity actually was. I am determined to read the second book in the series though because of the ending of this one.

The Selection - Kiera Cass

Loved it! It definitely was not what I was expecting. I don't know how I would feel if The Selection was a real thing in America. I think I would participate for the fun of it and to get away from home, but like America I don't think I would actually win. I like how America and Maxon's relationship started. Even though she wants to be with Aspen so bad, I think her and Maxon would be perfect for each other. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
