So after a terribly slow start I finally got into this book. I read the first 10 or so pages like 5 times over the month, never getting very far. Then I challenged myself to read and not stop for one night- reporting progress to fellow goodreader Angie - Hi Angie!- then I was able to really enjoy this story. I really like the world Inlan creates, moving matter is a magical ability is very unique and interesting. Having everything in French the way some things are in Latin, or Elvish, or some oth ...more

This books was just eh for me. Honestly it felt more like a fanfiction book adapted to be an original, and a somewhat poorly written well as well. The storyline was somewhat predictable and I would've like a few surprise moments instead. After the seemingly from nowhere backstory of Fabia's "supposed" imaginary friend Telly and how she hadn't thought about him in years, to the revelation of Rufus' (and what kind of hero name is that anyway?) feeling like he's known Fabia his entire life it was p ...more

Recommends it for: fans of Twilight
picked up in a bargain bin for $2. writing is very clunky in parts, esp. the beginning, which is mostly exposition (to be expected as this is the second in a trilogy, but still). definitely needed a proofreader; lots of typos. humor was better than average but characters pretty one-dimensional. as for plot... eh. some interesting mythology. never liked the title, and soon came to hate it... as every time i spotted it i had Rod Stewart crooning in my head for hours after.

umm okay. I didn't realize it was the second in a series of three, but regardless, it wasn't that good. I 'm glad I bought it used.

The absolute sadness of the first chapter almost brought me to my knees. OMG was that sad. I can't wait until they catch the bastard who did that to Rufus. Though the good guys won't do to him/her what should be done. IMHO an eye for an eye and all that it entails. Rufus made a spectacular hero and Fabia Fair (what a name) was a wonderful humanitarian caring for the downtrodden and abused. A classic tale of good vs evil with a magical twist.

Just finished Reason To Believe, the second book in the Believe series by Jessica Barksdale Inclan, and Rufus Valasay and Fabia Fair's story. Just magical! I liked it better than the first book. The excerpt to third book, Believe in Me, Felix Valasay and Sayblee Safipour's story, read like the best one yet. Plus it will include the final confrontation with Quain Dalzeil.

At the beginning it was hard for me to get interested in the book. This might be because it is the second book in the trilogy and I did not read the first. I enjoyed the uniqueness of the magical abilities and the humor throughout.

There were a few twists that I was not prepared for, that made this book so enjoyable. The Valasay brothers sure are hot, they make me wish that magic really did exist. How do you know when you have found the person that is just right for you?
táto kniha ma oproti prvému dielu mierne sklamala, hlavne kvôli tomu, že sa dej odohráva ešte pred začatím prvej knihy a autorka tak nevyužila dejové prostredie ktoré si pripravila v prvej knihe, ozaj škoda.

Was an okay book. It kept my attention which is a plus but the story just was kind of boring.

Did not finish, read the start but did not capture me and I have too many other books I would rather read

Knížka se mi líbila, což o to, ale autorka by měla psát spíše červenou knihovnu, než knihy pro mládež. :D
