About Eve A. James

My name is Eve A. James and I am a member of Romance Writers of America. Writing for young adults is my passion, especially when I can combine it with my love for paranormal. I can’t imagine anything more exciting than a place where an ordinary girl or a boy finds its rightful place among the gifted, immortal or heavenly creatures, where falling in love for the first time, discovering who you really are, is just a beginning.
As a child, I was fascinated by fairy tales by Grimm brothers and Hans Christian Andersen, with their dark twists and universal truth that good always trumps evil. Influenced by a strong hero’s character from those stories she started writing tales where an ordinary person could do extraordinary things. Writing has turned into a passion that I admit I am too weak to resist.
I treasure a good story that pulls me inside and allows me to walk the path alongside my favorite characters.

I'm left in this quiet, foggy kind of surreal place after reading this book. This is a great beginning to a very intriguing story. It is definitely a short story being 15 pages but it carried so much weight. It is beautifully written, compelling, placing me in a trance and wanting much more when it ended.

Some thoughts:

I didn't care for the authors description of Sebastian who is the mysterious friend in the synopsis. She describes his lips being too full to ever be considered sexy and nose too wide to be considered beautiful although she thought him handsome. I know it was meant to be Rose's opinion but please be careful. Those features ARE beautiful.

Voodoo or Vodun is mentioned and I'm excited to see this included in the book and hope the author does the religion justice by being as accurate as possible.

Finally, Rose is an eight year old but the voice carried in the book is of an adult. I actually thought this was an adult book until I read the About the Author blurb and realized the author writes YA. So this had me a bit confused throughout the book but only a bit.

All in all, overall, it was good enough to rate, comment and want more of this trilogy.

This story isn't even on Goodreads. My question is - WHY?

There's not much to review, but I have to say it's amazing. You know - when you read a book you get different feeling. Sometimes it's "Oh my God, end it. It's boring", something it's "I-can't-stop-reading". This story gave me this second feeling.

I couldn't sleep at night (hello, my dear insomnia) and I needed something that will make me fall asleep. It didn't. I started reading and I really couldn't stop. Good thing it was short, because I would have to read it all night. 6331 words - it's for less than hour, I don't even remember exactly.

But it was perfect. Story makes you feel pretty nostalgic and I almost cried - really. I can't say lot about story, because I would spoiler (and it's to short to spoiler...), but it has sense. It makes you think - Iis human nature really like that? You won't know how it ends, what happens next. Perfectly written, perfect story, perfectly developed.

Read it. I give it 5 stars with clean coscience.
