Obernewtyn review

book by: Jsovelle Carmody

Review by: Jennifer Talty

The book was very masterfully written, not only for its many different events but also for the human emotions that can be easily seen and felt while immersing yourself into the story. Unlike some novels, obernewtyn is very adventurous and keeps the reader on their toes as they continue on through the story, what with its mysteries, hidden secrets, and many intense moments, this book is a good read for those who wish to be immer...more
Because I must sleep soon, I will only give a shortened version of my thoughts at the moment, with promise of more to come, and they are as follows:

1)This is such a compelling read, it's like Harry Potter with the world-building and the prophecies, but so different at the same time. Though technically a children's book, I reccommend all people 4th grade and up read this.

2)I found my new OTP. And it is adorable.

Review by: J

I found this book to be very interesting along with suspenseful due to the mysteries and also the plot line. Each character had their own personality which is a nice change to just bland characters who just show up and leave randomly within a novel. I would recommend this book to anyone in want of adventure and suspense!

I absolutely love this series! I think I've read the books 3 or 4 times over :) they are so well written as well.

Enjoyable and want to read more. However I didn't find myself having a hard time leaving the world of the book. It was not one I daydreamed about.
Easy to read and a mildly interesting story. I was considering continuing the series, but the combination of one-dimensional villians and the fact that it's not finished after 25 years changed my mind.
This is a good 2 book novel that I own and love. The originality is great.
I like it so far can't wait to see what happens next
Rereading this series on my nook, still loving them!
