  • Terrible

    By Meowbitchgetoutdaway
    Poorly written. Interesting idea and concept but the quality is bad.

    A must read for paranormal romance readers. I'm falling in love with this series too. Stacy writes so well that you feel like you know the characters in a personal way.
  • Great Story

    By Keithbornmann
    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This was actually the second time I've read it. I'll probably read it again later.
  • Distracting in a bad way

    By Mythicnight
    This book has a very interesting, if fairly predictable, plot line. The ideas and plot were very interesting and unique outside of that predictability, which is what kept me reading. However, the editing of this story is just terrible. I definitely won't be reading any further books in this series as it's just too hard to really get immersed in the unique story, no matter how badly I wanted to. This book had many spelling and grammatical errors throughout the book, but what was most painful and distracting was the fact that nothing was really fleshed out in the story itself. The story jumped from one major scene to another without much detail, let alone any real transition, which left me distracted while wondering how and why the story had suddenly gotten to where it was. It had little to no detail, and was mostly structured with short sentences that made everything seem abrupt and blunt. I wanted more information, more fluidity, and both were severely lacking on top of the constant mistakes.
  • Love it

    She has done it! I love it and I only read this one but I'm ready to buy the whole series like now. It is a long series but I like the fact that it's not only three or four books and that's it. I want to grow with the characters. Great book

    Before I read this book I had read all the reviews to find most of them positive. So you can imagine the disappoint I felt when I started to read. I couldn't even get through the first chapter without feeling bored. Many of the lines include mistakes or spelling/grammar errors. Which is not entirely a big deal, but the part I was most annoyed about was the wording. Instead of being descriptive or expressive, the author uses common and boring phrases such as "I screamed. I stood next to my parents. I rolled my eyes." Instead of this, the author could have used something more descriptive such as "A piercing scream escaped my throat, eyes wide, I began to retreat backwards." See the description is less blunt and more emotional. Not boring and repetitive. Glad I could offer some constructive criticism.
  • Amazing!!!

    By EsaNiñaFresa
    I loved it! It has a love triangle going on that you would have never guessed and it left me wanting to know more! So many twist that I would imagine!
  • More original then I expected

    By Pretty good game_
    So this book is one of this authors early books, to my understanding, but it definitely did not seem like it. The characters were relatable, without reaching too much, the fantasy elements were on point, without being too cliche, and the romance had enough plot twists to make the story believable, and unpredictable. Definitely would recommend this book to fans of YA paranormal romance, and I myself will be checking out other books by this author.
