The reviews were so good I had to take a look, although the blurb didn't sound so interesting. But apparently this book failed to interest me at all. I don't like the writing style. And there's nothing that 'holds' me, but I suppose the writer's good. Her choice of words is powerful.
Honestly, I have no idea why the reviews are so good. Yes, the plot is well designed but it was not as well written as a 5 star rating should be. I've read many suspense books and this is not nearly as exquisite as those. This is fun to read and has the air of mystery but nothing that makes you want to read on and on. I expected better seeing the reviews but oh well. And there were many religions which just got annoying. Like "million and one times".
But good, nonetheless.
I agree with the review of S.J. It definitely needs and deserves much more than 5 stars! I don't think I have ever come across a book which was so well written! The writing presented a clear view, the words were exquisitely vivid. This in itself, is good enough to earn full points. But the plot? Nothing short of amazing can describe such a beautiful novel. The writing is touching. I found myself taking breaks to get rid of the enchanting spells it had on me. I read and then took occasional breaks. It overwhelmed me.
I believe the author deserves more recognition and this is pure talent. Wonderful!
Your New Fan,
This is a pretty good book. It was a nice following of the other two books. The only problem is the writing which was a tad bit fast and I felt like it was rushed. With more intimacy, more time for the relationship to grow, this one would be awesome!
But it's great nonetheless! The ending... Killed a part of me. Had to read Adrastia immediately.
PLEASE FINISH WRITING THE SERIES QUICKLY, VERY QUICKLY.
This is definitely the best book of the whole series. Though, I love Poseidon way more than Adrastia but that love stems from a relationship I have with him from long ago. I loved this book because it was not rushed, it took its time to build, and had spots you cannot help but admire. You have to like the hero of this book along with the heroine. Both were rightful characters who had a different kind of nice about them. The story was full of suspense. The only thing you knew is what the Graeae had said will be true but didn't know how. Which was clawing my brain and made me want to hit something. But because I knew the ending would be cliffhanger, I read on with such an expectation and wasn't so hurt by it as I was by Hades. :( The plot was great!
PLEASE FINISH WRITING THE SERIES QUICKLY, VERY QUICKLY. I simply cannot wait!!!!!!
This book is not something you should miss out on since most likely you will regret it. It has the effect of any falling object in the surrounding vicinity due to Earth's gravity; you will be drawn and it will latch onto your brain like iron does to a magnet. Just click the button and download it! My review contains spoilers and is the message I sent to the author of this amazing book (I wrote it in the haze of the moment and hence my language is more or less kiddish):
Hi Lizzy. I just wanted to let you know that I finished reading Trial By Moon and my mind is blown! The plot is unlike anything I've read even though I've read so many books with supernatural creatures such as the ones mentioned in this book. I knew what to expect from the ending, an ending that will leave me wanting so much more. But I didn't expect to be so overwhelmed. You don't know just how many possibilities are running through my head. I'm officially going crazy. Since my mind is overly active, I think a lot about pretty much everything. And I finished it last night after I got the ARC. I've tried to decide who will be what. I think what is the obvious about Ben is not really obvious. The fact that there is at least one lie involved is absolutely crazy! I've even dreamt about it @.@ please, please, continue writing this one and finish it because I know I am totally hooked and going haywire.
