HASH(0x93960504) étoiles sur 5 So Slow 29 avril 2014
Par Sharon L - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I look at all the glowing reviews, maybe not glowing, but most of the reviews are very complimenting, and I feel bad.

I'm in a minority here. What book did I read, I wonder…

Mistwalker was one of my most anticipated books of 2014. When I saw it on NetGalley, I hit the 'request' button immediately. Then, I crossed my fingers and I waited…anxiously…and I was approved.

I actually did a little happy dance then. And happily(!!) I settled down to read it. Imagine my surprise once I realized I was bored. The pacing is slow, the writing is beautiful but I've seen better.

Yes, the setting is fairly interesting and beautiful, the idea is great. But the pacing is so damn slow that I found myself dozing off.
I wanted to like it so badly, but I could barely finish reading it.

Yet, looking at all those great reviews I kept wondering- 'did I miss something? Was I missing something?'

I kept on reading, pushing through it and hoping that at some point. At any point something would happen, something interesting. At one point I was so desperate for Something .

Sadly, for me it never came. Yes, there is that thing that happened eventually (view spoiler). But I felt as if it wasn't explained well. Why did it happen like that? WHY?

Zero. Nada.

Maybe it just wasn't for me. I don't know. I've been putting off this review long enough, and now I don't have much to write or explain.
I actually wish this book would have made me feel something. Even rage. But I feel nothing, beside maybe that it was a waste of my time. It's a weird feeling for me, to be so detached from the book and the characters. So very bored.

A review copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

I really wanted to like Saundra Mitchell's newest novel, MISTWALKER. I've read a few of her earlier books and enjoyed them... Mitchell writes beautifully, but all of her books feel very slow to me. With here other books, the writing and premise were enough to hold my interest, but I wasn't feeling a connection to these characters, so my interest kept slipping.

I can't exactly explain why, but I simply did not like this main character. I think it might have been that she felt very one-dimensional to me... there was nothing that made me feel for or identify with her, so I didn't really care what happened to her - which is a problem when the plot is about her likely demise.

Definitely check out Mitchell's other books, but I won't recommend this one.

HASH(0x937700c0) étoiles sur 5 Amazing and heartbreaking book. 19 février 2014
Par Carina's Books - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I think I have waited about a year to finally read Mistwalker. And I do think the wait was worth it. <3 This is the fourth book by Saundra that I have read, and I have enjoyed them all. I'm rating this a four star. Because I loved it, but it broke my heart. See, I was wishing so hard for something that didn't happen.

But oh, I'm not sure how to talk about this book. Because Mistwalker was a beautiful book. Beautiful and heartbreaking. I really enjoyed the writing. And the characters were amazing. And I loved the story to pieces. But I kind of wanted more from the ending. Oh, it's perfect, but I wanted a tiny thing more.

This story is told from the point of view of Willa and the Grey Man. Willa is pretty amazing. I did love her. But she frustrated me a little bit. With how she behaved around this one person. Hmm. But I did love her best friend and I think they had an awesome friendship. She kind of has a boyfriend. Seth. And I'm not sure how I felt about him. He seemed sweet and kind but I didn't really think he and Willa fit together as a couple, hih.

I'm not going to say too much about this book. Just that it is a beautiful story and I enjoyed reading it. I got hooked early on and I couldn't stop reading until I had finished it. I enjoyed the writing and I liked the characters. For the most part. I did find Willa to be an interesting character. I enjoyed her family, though they are all broken over the death of her younger brother, Levi. And that broke my heart. But I loved reading about how they struggled; with family love and with money issues. It was very real.

I liked reading about the town in this book. It's small. And we don't see too much about it, but enough for me to like it. Though I don't think I could ever be a fisher, as I hate the smell. Sigh. But it do interest me. And I kind of loved that Willa and her family fished for lobsters. It was pretty awesome to read about. Though most of the scenes broke my heart a little. Mistwalker is full of feels. Good feels, bad feels. Mostly heartbreaking feels. But I loved every part of it. Okay, fine, maybe not the ending :D

The other point of view is from the Grey Man. Who is actually a teenage boy. And his story is pretty heartbreaking and he gave me all the feels. I kind of loved him to pieces. And I wish his story had been happier. That is what bothered me about the ending. There is no romance between him and Willa. And I didn't really mind that at all. But oh, I wanted it. I wanted them together. Or at least to be friends. But they weren't even that. That broke my heart a little. Sniffs. Sequel one day, maybe? Fingers crossed.

But anyway. I loved reading about the Grey Man. He's such an amazing character. And his story is so interesting. And I won't spoil it. But let's just say that there is some magic involved. And a curse. And it's heartbreaking but at the same time so interesting to read about. And kind of beautiful. I really enjoyed reading about it in this book. Sigh. But yes. I really wish we had seen more of him and Willa together. I wanted them to have a friendship. Grrr. And that is why this is a four star and not a five.

I can't change my feelings about it. But. I really did enjoy this book. And I'm glad I read it. The story is amazing and the plot is so good. I didn't say much about it, but that's okay. As I think you all should read it for yourself :D It is amazing. I found Mistwalker to be an exciting book. It is beautiful and heartbreaking. It gave me a lot of feelings. And while I had some issues with the lack of romance, I couldn't not like the book because of it. Cannot wait to read more upcoming books by Saundra. <3

HASH(0x9376db64) étoiles sur 5 Tips YA tropes on their heads, love these characters 4 février 2014
Par Anya @ On Starships and Dragonwings - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Mistwalker by Saundra Mitchell tells the story of a small lobster-fishing town with a cursed lighthouse, though the Grey Man residing in the lighthouse hasn’t actually been acting all that mean in the last 100 years. Mistwalker combines the charm and troubles of a small town with a spunky MC, a family trying to keep from breaking after tragedy, and a dash of paranormal. I absolutely loved the inclusion of realistic high school relationships (and ends of high school relationships), a best friend who just happens to also be a lesbian, and parents who are trying their best despite recently having buried a child. Mistwalker was not at all what I was expecting; it was way better!
Note: I received an eARC of Mistwalker through Netgalley for an honest review. Some things may have changed in the final version.

Mistwalker by Saundra Mitchell
Published by Harcourt on Feb. 4th, 2014
Genres: Contemporary Fantasy, YA
Length: 272 pages
How I got my copy: NetGalley

When Willa Dixon’s brother dies on the family lobster boat, her father forbids Willa from stepping foot on the deck again. With her family suffering, she’ll do anything to help out—even visiting the Grey Man.

Everyone in her small Maine town knows of this legendary spirit who haunts the lighthouse, controlling the fog and the fate of any vessel within his reach. But what Willa finds in the lighthouse isn’t a spirit at all, but a young man trapped inside until he collects one thousand souls.

Desperate to escape his cursed existence, Grey tries to seduce Willa to take his place. With her life on land in shambles, will she sacrifice herself?

Strengths:
The Grey Man legend isn’t something I’ve read about ever so it was awesome to see this new semi-ghost story angle. The dual POV between Willa and Grey just added a whole new intriguing element. We find out right away that Grey isn’t the cursed ghost that he’s supposed to be, but he definitely isn’t perfect either. Plus, he has power over the fog :D.
There isn’t much romance in Mistwalker, partially because Willa is in a long-term committed relationship from the beginning, and partially because Mistwalker portrays a typical problem of the end of high school: high school romances don’t always survive. I was thrilled at the realistic portrayal of a couple of romances, which was honestly a breath of fresh air for YA.
Willa’s best friend is Bailey and she’s gay! I was so so so happy with Bailey as a character since she has a lot of other things going on (applying to colleges, avoiding repairing the brakes on her truck, trying to maintain a relationship into college) and really her romantic relationship could have easily been with a boyfriend instead. Mistwalker is an excellent example of how easy and appropriate it is to have a couple of characters that aren’t straight without it being a big deal.
I wasn’t really sure how Mistwalker was going to end, but I was so happy that romantic true love didn’t save the day. There is a really interesting parallel drawn between Willa’s experience with Grey and Grey’s experience with the previous Grey Lady that just made me love Willa all the more.
I know pretty much nothing about lobster-fishing (did you know there are blue lobsters?!?), so it was really interesting to find out a bit more about how all of that works, plus the fun setting of a small town where the elementary/middle/high school is in a renovated mansion, haha.

Weaknesses:
Mistwalker is kind of the opposite of action-packed. There is a lot of stress going on for everyone, but things just sort of progress at a normal pace instead of the edge-of-your-seat action that you might expect. I didn’t find myself struggling to keep reading necessarily, but I did keep wondering when the action would start and it just never really did.
Mistwalker isn’t a book with a happily ever after, so don’t go in expecting that. I was content with the ending and give props for Mitchell staying true to the themes of the book, but there are a few loose ends that it looks like I’ll never get answers for *sigh*.

Summary:
If the idea of the Grey Man and a small fishing town intrigue you, definitely pick up Mistwalker. Mistwalker does an excellent job of combating so many of the common complaints with YA (absent parents, insta-love, lack of LGBT characters), while creating an intriguing and mesmerizing world for you to discover along with Willa. I will definitely be looking for more books by Mitchell in the future since my biggest complaint is that there probably won’t be a sequel! D:

HASH(0x93afbb70) étoiles sur 5 3.5 stars; Might be Mitchell's best novel yet 21 janvier 2014

See more of my reviews on The YA Kitten!

Saundra Mitchell is an odd author for me. Her novels are all over the place, but her short stories are almost always impeccable. Mistwalker had me worried to begin with and I didn't plan to read it, but the word "seduce" is one of my buzzwords and when an opportunity arises... Luckily, my whims decided not to bite me in the rear end this time. Mistwalker may be Mitchell's best novel yet!

The novel is a dual POV novel that rotates between Willa and Grey, aka The Grey Man. Their voices are pretty distinct (Grey uses a lot of old-time language Willa doesn't) and there are formatting/tense differences too, so it's easy to remember who is narrating a given chapter. Grey is a bit of a dolt and makes every wrong step possible while Willa is making just as many terrible decisions. With her brother newly dead after they went to sabotage a rival fisherman (he was in their waters!), she's not in a good state of mind. Because of that one night, the direction she thought she would have in life is swiftly taken away from her and she's almost having to rebuild anew.

She obviously gets more character development than he does, but it works. He is an important entity and character in his own right, but in the end, he is a device for her, someone she can use to get what she needs. In a way, she is the same for him; without her, he might be trapped for who knows how much longer in that lighthouse because of the curse he inherited. Their complex relationship is one of the better points of the novel.

Anyone looking for a break from romance will be pretty happy with this book too. There are minor elements of it when Willa is still dating her boyfriend and when Grey thinks the key to getting Willa to take his place is making her love him, but this is a coming-of-age story above all else. The love the novel is focused on is the love of one's family, one's life, one's freedom--and how far is far enough for any of those things. Thank goodness for that because this story never would have worked as a romance. It works exactly as it is.

So if the book is this good, why does it not have all the stars? It took about 35-40% of the novel for it to actually get anywhere. We have our narrators living and talking, but no progress is being made until they meet. Even then, the storyline and all that isn't as affecting as it should be. There's a funny moment when Grey shows he owns a copy of Twilight and Willa says practically the perfect words when he's trying to convince her to take his place, but it needs to be much more involving than it is for this story to really work its magic.

Here's hoping Mitchell's books keep getting better from here! I'm hesitant to recommend her Vespertine novels, but Mistwalker is definitely one to think about and anything she puts in an anthology is surely solid.
