The Soul's Mark: FOUND (The Soul's Mark, #1)
on Aug. 11, 2012
Well, I loved this book! But somehow I can't find the appropiate way to review it, that's why it took me so long to post it.
Above all, it was a fun reading with an impeccable writing and unique storyline combined with perfectly constructed characters. A nice twist on soulmates, a refreshing premise with vampires and some magic. Definitely a fantastic start for a series!
The whole book goes around Amelia, and the story begins when she earns a scholarship and move to her "dream house" and meet her new friends. She has quite a temper! She is strong and brave and even after a dreadful past, she is funny and easy to relate to.
"Jeez! Is this the attack of gorgeous people?" (that line seriously made me giggle!)
In my opinion, one of the most important moments in a book is that exact second when the lovers meet.
Here, as we have a love triangle (well more like a love square at some point lol), we have 2 main encounters.
When Amelia and Eric met I couldn't stop grinning. The situation was perfect and hilarious.
With Mitchell... well... the moment wasn't that awesome, but the truth is I'm biased here lol, for me Eric is totally amazing and Mitchell is not lol, he summoned a rollercoaster of emotions and there were not always good: I loved him, despised him, loved him again and so on.
Sometimes he annoyed me completely, he was selfish and childish, at some point I thought he didn't care about Millie at all. There were many things he did that made me wonder if he was that in love with her or was simple infatuation.
On the other hand, we have some other characters such as Angelle who is sweet and unnerving at the same time, and I believe there is more of her story to come, there was a sneak peek of her past and was great, a little sad, but interesting nonetheless.
Also, there is Erin, the friend. She is such a complex character as well, one of my favorites, witty, loyal and caring.
There was a moment within the story which I personally found to be extremely sad, it was Amelia's talk with her mum, it made my heart stop. So emotive!!!
What else can I add? Eric is delicious and I wanna read more about him. And of course, this book goes to my favorite shelf for sure!
