- Crest Of The Blood Moon
on July 26, 2013
This is one of the best YA fantasy books I've read this year. Despite the fact I haven't finished reading the first two books in this series, it didn't make this one hard to fathom. It differs itself from the common genre about supernatural beings, particularly werewolves and vampires by elaborating and adding more intricate facts you wouldn’t find in any other books. I just don’t like the heroine being so over dramatic beyond what a normal teenager naturally acts but overall the characters are carefully created that makes them all valuable to the story as it progresses. There are also some minor proofreading that needs to be done since there are quite a few gaps with the story line. (Sorry I can’t help not to notice :) )
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who love romantic/fantasy story but adamant to read one since most of it treads on the same story lines. Crest of the Blood Moon differs itself by being able to stand on its own and by creating an all-new different concept. It doesn’t follow the common road every werewolf/vampire novels does which makes our eyes roll most of the time. I can't hardly wait for the next book in this series and I’ll make sure this time I’ve read the first two books before starting.
- Doubt - Among Us Trilogy Book 1
on Feb. 22, 2014
Rate: 4.5 stars
This is the first book of the Among Us Trilogy series by Anne-Rae Vasquez. It revolves around the lives of unique individuals that are banded together to discover the truth behind their missing loved ones; little do they know they will discover much more than what they anticipated. Harry Doubt created an online game known as Truth Seeker, as a way to gather these people, particularly those with exceptional abilities and skills. Their quest for truth will lead them in the midst of “the end of the world” and it is up to them how they are going to stop it or if they have what it takes to impede these catastrophic events.
What I like with this book is the fast-paced action and suspense in every page, which keeps me on edge and glued to my seat at the same time. Being a supernatural / paranormal fan, I loved how detailed the author depicts every scene, making it so realistic and plausible, to the point wherein we question ourselves about the reality of the world we’re living in. The story was complex enough to keep you guessing without being exaggerated. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5-star is that some of the characters are not transitioned into the story properly, making it difficult to remember who’s who and their relevance in the story, which I hope to be cleared out in the next part of the series. Overall, this is definitely a good read and I honestly can’t wait for the next book in this trilogy.
I highly recommend this to everyone who loves science fiction and dystopian genre with an added supernatural twist.
- The Daughter of Fate
on Sep. 22, 2014
**I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)**
The first two to three chapters started out dull for me. This is where you'll notice that it the book clearly needs editing. I had to skim through these pages just to get to the real story. The "Fates" concept is very interesting and I just wish the author elaborate on this. The story was more on the Mackenzie's feelings towards Gabriel and vice versa, which only dampens the good story behind being a daughter of Fate. Overall, I rated it 3 stars because of the great concept conceptualized by a new author.
