What made me read this book is because of the blurb. Well, I love Tristan and Isolde's story and thought of giving this book a chance. Sadly, I didn't like it. WHY?1. There are a lot of things the author sacrificed just so she could end the story. 2. She learned that she's powerful and after that go...

Firstly, I’ll applaud Harrison for her accuracy, in part, to the original epic of Tristan. As an Arthurian fan/snob/geek, I really appreciated that. However, I wish so desperately that this book had been better than it was, considering how I adore the story of Tristan and Isolde for very much. I wen...

I did not enjoy this book at all. The premise sounded intriguing and the cover was pretty, but the story itself was boring with flat, undeveloped characters, poorly written dialogue, and a romance that made me roll my eyes more times than I can count. It’s a pretty short book at under 300 pages, but...

So...this review is kind of hard to write.The writing was not good. At all. Then I kept reading and the bad writing didn't stand out to me as much. Maybe because I got used to it?

I had some really high expectations about this book. I thought it was going to be all lovey dovey and it was, but just not in the way I expected it to be. What I like most about this book are the characters. Fresh out this world, the characters are what makes this book. I loved their loyalty, the ...

The beginning of the story starts off well, off. Everything in Izzie's life is too perfect, her relationship with Mark, her happiness with life in general. Not your typical teenager, that's for sure. I don't feel like I'm a part of the story, I feel like the story is being told and I'm watching it h...

This book could have been so many things.It could have been a modern retelling of the myth of Tristan and Isolde, a deeply emotional study on a young woman being torn between the two lovers and the tragedy that ensues.It could have been a hilarious farce about just how many things can wrong when you...

Review originally posted at The Starry-Eyed Revue.Okay, I admit it. I haven’t actually ever read the original story of Tristan and Isolde, but a quick Wikipedia search tells me that, yes, this could be considered a retelling, though I’m not entirely convinced. I’ll still need to read the original ...
