Smashwords book reviews by Marie Francis

  • Pandora's Key on July 14, 2012

    This book is completely enthralling! It had me fixated page to page. It was a completely different and very interesting take on pandoras box. And I had no idea what to expect as the story continued. Its definitely worth reading and I am very glad the author offered her book up for a review for it is a series good enough to ensure I read the next installment.

    Damn Messenger! What a read.. Ok when I got an inbox off Courtney asking if I wanted a copy of this book she just didn't just ask she basically demanded I read it, she raved this book and and built it up so much the word "no" never came to mind. I was in a rut as far as reading and no matter how good a book was that feeling you get, the excitement and adrenaline of reading a new book, a book you know is going to be good- was lacking. Like I said I was in a rut, no book was cutting it for me and as my list of books from various sources built up I couldn't bring myself to write their reviews because to put it simply I didn't want to. I had no motivation and although I could distinguish a good book from a bad book my enthusiasm lacked and I wouldn't do any book justice through writing reviews that had no emotion or enthusiasm behind them. Now enough of my waffling. Jon, Jon, Jon, where have you been hiding!? I could have done with World Aflame #2, #3 and #4 right now! That's right, with every page I turned I felt my curiosity and my excitement return. I had a smile on my face the whole way through as I sat up and really took notice and care in every word that made up 'Wind Warrior'. When I saw that cover slowly I felt like my old geeky self. I felt my fingers twitch to begin this amazing story and my eyes never left my iPad from that moment on. Courtney you saved me! And what a catch you caught here huh!? Messenger this book was not fab it was amazing! Xander was such a character and do you know what? It was so bloody refreshing reading a book from a guys POV, no more needy and insecure heroins that just get under your skin. I was able to bond with him immediately and this read kept me glued from page 1 to page end. Who doesn't love a good elemental story? Xander is a 20 year old college slacker, he knows his family is not 'normal' but I bet he wishes they were when he finds out why. When a normal day turns into anything but and when he feels the wind fill every space his body retains and which ultimately saves a mans life its safe to say his own life is never the same again. I loved how this fast paced novel still wangled in some romance, a book is never complete without it. And that ending! What more could readers want. You, Messenger, have managed to write a remarkable YA Fantasy novel and I would not only like to thank you for sharing it with us but also for getting me excited about reading once again. I think my dear friend Courtney said it best when she described this novel as "AMAZEBALLS".
