Synopsis looks great right? The book was great! Amazing even..but then why 3.5 STARS???? Grammar mistakes and missing words!!!! IN THE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF CHAPTER 1. And for a book that was published about six months ago-that’s kind of a big deal. At first i thought i could ignore it but the one in the first paragraph of a first chapter really bugged me. I mean the first chapter is supposed to captivate you and make you want to keep reading. But anyway that kind of threw me off. I know there are grammar mistakes in my reviews sometimes..but for a published book i expected more.
So why did i keep reading? Because the plot was great! It is definitely an amazing book! Absolutely thrilling and enticing setting! You really do not see that ending and figure out what we’re dealing with until Charlie does..so it was pretty cool to be on the journey with her and not in advance.
And let’s not mention the guys! Peter and Alex? DROOL. Not usually a fan of love triangles but this one wasn’t so bad. Both guys were incredibly hot, sweet, funny and yet unique.
Charlie as a protagonist was pretty much awesome. She has a don’t-mess-with-me attitude. She’s strong and does not allow herself to be bullied. Definitely not vain-just normal. And i guess that’s what i liked about her. She’s someone you can relate to and cheer on.
This book has AMAZING potential.I seriously see it overpowering twilight. I recommend this to everyone but it would be even better if an editor could come and touch up this diamond in the rough!!! I did like the book and i’m interested in seeing what happens next!
