    I received this book from the Goodreads.com giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

    I do have to say that I agree with Pikachu Ketchum's review of this novel. Although I gave it one extra star just due to the fact that writing a novel takes real time and dedication, and lots and lots of energy. Plus, it wasn't totally horrible.

    I thought the character interactions were quite a bit unbelievable and did not flow well. Apart from that, there were grammer mistakes. And grammer mistakes wouldn't be

    Despite the earlier parts of the book by the time I got to the and I found that I was really enjoying it. Unfortunately the earlier parts can get very bad; almost the entire first quarter of the book needs to be rewritten. The problem is that this is very obviously one of the author’s earliest attempts at writing a novel and as such the unrevised earlier parts show many beginners mistakes and just generally doesn’t flow very well at all, there are also several very bad character logic jumps that ...more

    Sonora and the Eye of the Titans by Travis Hall is the story of refugees from a parallel planet who flee a cruel and evil dictator. It is the story of a teenager, Allora coming to her powers at a young age of 16. Most Sonorans come of age at a minimum of 18. Allora always felt alienated from her peers but never knew why. Her best friend Katie and her twin brother Dax and childhood friend Tanner are also from Sonora. Her mom Milly is the leader and she doesn't want Allora to know anything about S ...more

    I’m a huge fan of “Percy Jackson” and I really enjoyed “I Am Number Four”, so when I saw “Sonora and the Eye of the Titans” described as “Percy Jackson” meets “I Am Number Four” I knew I had to read it! This description actually ended up being pretty accurate, too. For some reason it took me a little while to get into the story, but once I was sucked in I couldn’t put it down. I love the concept, especially the mythology aspect. I was hoping to like Sonora and Tanner a little more, but maybe in ...more

They are drawn into the battle unwittingly and then become active agents in the struggle. Allora, Tanner, Katie and Dax work together to learn and grow into their abilities and shape their own destiny, knowing it will also have an effect on their own people and earth. The

    Advanced reader review:

    This is my first review as an advanced reader and I feel really terrible with my rating but I know I have to be honest. Truth is I couldn't even finish the book. I only made it about 50 pages in and I can't fathom trying to pick it up again after starting it over a month ago. There are some major flaws in the book. First off the characters have no personality. For example in the first few pages the main character is nervous about cheer try-outs. When the head cheerleader c

    So this book.. What to say…… I liked the concept and the Synopsis grabbed me…
    As for the story itself it had me on a roller coaster of do I want to continue reading it or just give it up.

    It started slow. Typical high school kids dealing with high school stuff than when the action started and we met Sas and found out what the kids were I was totally digging it. Then as I kept reading the story got bad again. Boring, the kids were annoying. I think Allor

    The first few pages drew me in and a few more pages promptly threw me back out.

    There was no depth to the writing. The plot was disconnected and there was zero backstory to build the world. Nothing that happened made any sense.

    One minute this girl, who seems tough, is going to cheerleader tryouts, but then one of the MEAN cheerleaders pulls a prank on her and she dissolves into a pouty mess who's hands suddenly light up in giant fire balls causing massive burns. She goes to the hospital where h

    An adventerous romp alongside four suburban teens as they struggle not only with the normal issues of life in highschool such as bullying, mean-girls, teen anxst, self esteem issues and nagging parents, but throw in their new found magical powers and the fact that they have just learned they are not even from our world and you've got Sonora and the Eye of the Titans.

    This was a First Reads giveaway book. I found this to be a cute story for a YA audience. Allora is a stereo-typical teenage girl full of attitude and defiance. She has to deal with the mean girls at school, with the queen bee of them all being the girlfriend of the boy Allora has a crush on. Things start to get weird when Jennie (the Queen Bee) sabotages Allora's cheerleading tryout. Allora gets mad and suddenly her hands are on fire. From that point on Allora's world isn't anywhere close to nor ...more

    *I received this book from the Goodreads.com giveaway in exchange for an honest review.*

    This book has a lot of potential in the story line, but it needs the gentle touch (okay, maybe forceful touch) of an editor in a really bad way. There were some words that were used completely wrong, which is a huge pet peeve of mine. The story didn't flow very well, and I didn't feel like the characters had enough individual personality. I think once this book goes through the hands of a talented editor it c

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Sonora, Eye of the Titans. It opened my eyes to young adult fantasy novels. His vivid sense of imagination and adventure kept me fully engaged and wanting to read more. I personally really liked how he talked about fictional characters and had his own little story and definition about them- it made the book fun and entertaining to read.

    I won this book as a give away. It took along time to arrive but that's fine by me. I love reading YA fantasy especially action-packed adventures. This is one of them. I love spunky teenagers although I feel as if I needed to know more from the book. I also wanted to know more about the baby in the prologue since it was never really explored. The editing was so-so since I found a few grammatical errors. In conclusion, I would recommend this book for a quick read.

    Sonora and the Eye of the Titans is my comeback to Urban Fantasy, it’s been a while since I’ve read a book of this genre.
    This book tells the story of 4 young adults and their adventures between two worlds. That’s one of the points I liked the most. It doesn’t tell the story from a totally different world, a different ambient. We see the characters grow as teens and also we see how they know and try to control their abilities.

    Sonora, and the Eye of the Titans is a young adult fantasy, in the similar vein of Percy Jackson. Allora is growing up as a 'normal' girl, whilst at the same time knowing that she is a Sonoran and having private lessons in magic and fighting. Also, it took a while to figure out just who knows what they are, and who doesn't. This book seems full of opposites - from being normal and Sonoran, to the love interest who likes Allora but is with someone else when it starts, and then agrees to go to the ...more

    I received this in a Goodreads giveaway through New Guy Publishing, with a letter that personally was signed by the author, T.S. Hall. Also, the book was autographed by Hall, which was greatly appreciated.

    "Sonora and the Eye of the Titans" has an interesting premise with lots of possibilities, and Hall writes with an abundance of natural talent.

    My opinion is that this book would have benefited greatly from professional editing, which it did not seem to have had. Proofreading wasn't a major issu

    DISCLAIMER: I received an ARC of this book for honest review, as part of a blog tour.

    Prepare to find yourself with a new series starter! And I mean if you haven't started this series, there's something wrong with you. The characters were great. Dax and Tanner were my favorite. I love the mixture of fantasy and regular every day endeavors. I really like the author's writing style. The way each character is brought to life is totally unique. They each have a voice and I loved it.

    The character's seemed a bit juvenile for their age. Events seemed to be thrown in for no real reason (camp, for instance) and it interrupted the flow of the book. Book needs some editing. Good story is there, just didn't hit the mark.

    I have chosen to give this book a 5 star review, despite the many areas of grammar mistakes/typos, BECAUSE it has done a really good job of delivering me a solid, fun filled adventure story to feed my mind and soul, which was currently really hungry. Basically, it was over all really good and one I will probably re-read again in the near future. It already has me really wanting the next book.

    I'm a writer, skier, and wanderer. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, but currently live in the beautiful mountain resort town of Sun Valley, Idaho. I love history, mythology, and the fantastical interpretations that have been incorporated in my debut young adult urban fantasy series called Sonora.
