Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Imprisoned, starved and left with no memories, Thalia awakens to find herself at the mercy of an evil cult known as the Septori. Their leader has chosen Thalia as the test subject for a torture device of untold power, designed to change and twist her into something that is neither human nor Denai.

Escaping, Thalia finds an unwilling warrior to protect her and an unlikely Denai to befriend her. After finding a home at the Citadel as a servant, Thalia’s worst nightmare comes to life and she begins to show signs of power. Scared and unable to control her gifts, she tries to hide her past to fit in among the Denai. But the Septori want their latest test subject back and will stop at nothing to retrieve her, dead or alive.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 so much potential 29 avril 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I wanted to like this book. I wanted to give it a better rating. There is so much to like about it

The good:
- wonderful story idea, the author clearly has a great story to tell here
- the characters are well suited to the YA genre
- the language is clean, there is no sex, or even blatant innuendo. This is very refreshing

The not good:
- incomplete ideas and thoughts. It was like the author expected me to be able to read her mind. But then there would be whole sections of frustrating exposition too.
- plot inconsistencies
- not enough character development
- poor grammar, this book really needs an editor

Even though the story is full of holes I still may buy the other books in this series to find out what happens, I did enjoy the story that much and my mind has had a lot of fun filling in the plot holes with my own ideas. I know that I could never accomplish what this author has done- put my ideas to paper, complete the work and publish it - so I feel harsh in only giving 2 stars, but the inconsistencies are THAT bad.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Writing Style Killed It 9 juin 2013
Par Trying to Help - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
*Not really any spoilers. I do quote a paragraph from about a quarter of the way into the book, but it's just a description of a room.

The premise is interesting. The writing killed it for me.

1. A good writer shows things through story. This book just straight up told you a lot of things. Often times, I would read a sentence and wonder how the narrator even knew the things she described. The book rotates from long explanation/description of a person/place into dialogue and then back again. Example:

"She closed the door behind me and I took in the utilitarian gray features of her office with its high, vaulted ceiling surrounded by wide windows and simple white curtains. The floor was simple tiles in muted grays, black, tan and ivory. A black desk set in the middle of her office surrounded by a no-nonsense tan rug. There were no personal touches evident in the room, but it was grand in its simplicity. The walls were bare except for the sconces to bring in more light when needed. A set of stairs at the back of the room led up to another level to Lorna's private living apartment. Each Adept lived above their offices so they would always be close by in case of emergencies."

This is an extremely straightforward description. We don't learn these things while she is talking to Lorna. Instead, the narrator tells it all to you in one fell swoop. In addition, the narrator, who has no memories, has no way of knowing what the set of stairs leads to or why the Adepts would live there. She just showed up. Then she has a conversation, then 3 people show up. This is followed by her describing each of them fully, once again followed by a conversation. It makes for tedious reading.

There is one major contradiction to this: the Denai. I felt like I was reading a sequel when they talked about the Denai, like I should already know everything about them. The amount of stuff that I didn't know about them made it difficult to grasp the concept. They are referred to as a different race, but are born to regular humans? They are extremely beautiful and get fawned over at one point, but then are described as looking completely normal latter? They have powers of some kind... Huh? For the first 25% of the book, I was left feeling like I was missing something that would explain them.

2. The narrator is amazingly resilient. She was just brutally tortured for weeks on end. She's half starved. She needs a bath. She gets beaten up running away and nearly dies in a river. But all it takes is a bowl of soup and she is willing to tell (not show, of course, just straightforward tell) what she knows of her entire story to 2 strangers. Of course, she is afraid of them touching her, but telling them her awful past is a piece of cake.

3. There were a lot of typos in my Kindle version. There were, at times, entire words missing from a sentence. Also, it's "an historian" not "a historian."

All in all, not my cup of tea.

This was interesting, to say the least.

It started out by grabbing my attention but then it kind of slacked off and I got a little bored. I almost put the book down and wouldn’t have finished it but, I decided to push on because what kind of reviewer would I be if I just didn’t read through every book? I’m glad I didn’t put it down because it picked back up and held on to my attention with a vengeance.

Before I knew it, I was physically reacting when someone would show up, gasping and throwing my hands in the air. I’m just glad I was alone because I get strange looks when I react to a book in public.

There are two guys that she’s developing feelings for and for once, I’m not sure who I want her to be with, I don’t know who to root for.

There’s the plainly obvious choice and then there’s the mysterious guy who tells her that she should hate him and she’s starting to question his sanity, the one who switches emotions so fast, you’re getting whiplash for her.

I’m hopeful for this series, if it had not slowed down and bored me in that one section, it would have been five stars. Hopefully the rest of the series keeps up and doesn’t slow down or I will be very disappointed.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Story Idea, Needs More Realism 24 juillet 2016
Par T.O.Powell - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I felt this was a great idea for a story, but unfortunately it wasn't all that good. Some of it would rate 4 Stars while other parts were only 2 Stars, thus I split the difference and settled on 3. I think that if the author had more experience this could have been a super story.

**SPOILERS AHEAD**: For the most part, I liked Thalia and her relationship with Joss. I liked how she learned to defend herself and also liked her special horse. The main thing that bothered me was that I simply couldn't buy into the instant and constant love/hate relationship between Thalia and Kael. It seemed pretty obvious to me that after much fighting/lusting/bickering, etc., they are the two who will get together in the end. I'm sorry, but I just didn't feel Thalia's constant switch from adoration to instant fuming hatred in every encounter with Kael seemed realistic at all. This is where I wish the author had more experience. I think an author with more experience could have made their encounters believable without overdoing the volatile emotions. I also felt the kidnapping in the dress shop was too far-fetched. It seemed to be a pretty big stretch that the bad guys were able to sneak into a dress shop's dressing room completely unseen, and then be able to sneak Thalia and the two kids out without a single person being aware of it. Why would a dress shop have a hidden entrance to their dressing room, anyway? Wouldn't that just allow customers to sneak out without paying? Totally unrealistic. **END SPOILERS**

All in all, this was an OK read. With some more work I feel it could be a 4 or 5 Star effort. If you can get it free or really cheap then I recommend it, but I don't plan to buy any others in the series.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 like watching water start to boil 28 avril 2015

I'm not really sure how I feel about this story. For me it started off a bit slow, like watching water start to boil. By the middle of the book I was finally able to stop having to go back and reread parts. The story finally made sense, certain events were explained! Then as I read on the characters started to come to life. Their struggles and triumphs started to become my own. By the end I sighed with relief that it was finished. I was done with that world til the next book. However, I don't know if I'm going to read the next one.
