Smashwords book reviews by angela courington

  • In Your Dreams on May 11, 2013

    **I received this book from the author via Goodreads in exchange for an honest review** Where do I start? I liked this book alot. It was a nice change of pace from your usual YA books. I liked the character of Zip, she seems like such a sweet kid. Keiran was good too, although I would like to see some more character development, and I'm sure that's what will happen in the second book. Kayla seems like a "mean girl" at first, and I was satisfied with how her character turns out. I liked that there was not a love triangle (don't get me wrong, I love a good triangle!), and that there was virtually no time for Zip and Keiran to get physical. This story is appropriate for both my 13 and 16 year old daughters simply because of this fact. I also liked that there isn't a cliffhanger, per se. If you choose to stop reading with this book, you get an ending. I want to and plan to read the next book, but with the ending I got, I feel like I can safely go on to another book without losing the storyline of this book while I wait for the sequel. So no matter if you're reading for yourself, or to determine suitability for your children, this book is an overall great read.

    *I received this book from the author, via Goodreads, in exchange for an honest review* This is the story of Spencer Perry. She lost her boyfriend, Micah, to a tragic accident that almost cost her own life. She has been a recluse all summer, because, well she can see Micah's ghost. Her love for Micah, and Micah's will to be with her have cracked open a door, just enough for Micah to slip through. Just when she thinks she'll never recover- herself OR Micah -she meets Ferris, and ambushes him, forcing him to give her a ride into the underworld. And that was the easy part! There she meets Hadrian, and bargains for Micah's return to the living. She unknowingly gets more than she bargains for. As she spends more time with Hadrian, she begins to understand him more, which makes her a threat. According to his brothers at least. The whole of the Underworld knows who Spencer is, but Spencer has no clue. As she begins to discover herself, will hers and Micah's love be enough to last forever? This is a retelling of the story of Persephone and Hades. I normally don't enjoy retellings much, because I feel like I already know the story, but I truly enjoyed this story. The author put in a lot of good twists, and plot points. There is no sex, and that makes it appropriate for a wide variety of age groups. If you like Greek Mythology, fairy tales, and a great romance, this is the book for you!
