I really wanted to like this book. The synopsis made it sound really interesting and I wanted it to be good. But unfortunately it fell short. It did not live up to my expectations and there were too many things that annoyed me so that is why I am only giving it 2.5 stars.
The story itself was slow moving. Nothing that overly exciting happened throughout the book. The world that the author created I have to admit was very imaginative and captivating. I liked learning about how Arkana came to be.
The characters did nothing for me in this book. I didn't connect to any of them and that is a big problem in my opinion. I didn't feel that the relationship between Molly and Victor was believable. It felt too forced. Molly I felt acted very childish and naive for her age and she just really got on my nerves at times. Victor I did not get. One minute he wants to kill Molly and the next he is declaring his love for her. It was done in such a short space of time that it didn't feel believable.
Another big issue I had with the book was the writing. It didn't flow and some sentences felt out of place and choppy. There were numerous grammatical errors which normally I can overlook but there were too many to ignore here.
There didn't seem to any definite plot or point to the book other than the relationship between Molly and Victor. It seemed like the author would just throw in something to keep the story interesting but instead it just felt out of place and unnecessary.
I know there are others who have loved the book but sadly it wasn't for me.

This is one of those books that starts at a gallop and never slows down. You will be grabbed from the word go and will be left thoroughly shaken. A faThis is one of those books that starts at a gallop and never slows down. You will be grabbed from the word go and will be left thoroughly shaken. A fantastic read.
The story was gripping and had enough twists and turns to keep you entertained and engaged. It was a very unique plot and I found myself wanting to find out more about The Immortals, The Quorum and the entire story behind the soul-stealing. The story is action-packed, never a dull moment. The writing flows effortlessly, beautifully descriptive, filled with both heartache and humor.
There is a great cast of characters to find in this book. Farley was very likable She's stubborn, sarcastic and knows how to speak her mind. She's also level-headed and very mature for her age. I instantly connected with her. Her best-friend Tess was really funny. I thought she was a great friend to Farley. Daniel I loved. He's a bad boy so obviously I would :P I love guys with that sarcastic attitude, and brooding demeanor. The ones that have a hidden depth to them. And what is it with guys that can fix cars and ride motorcycles and have cool cars (I want a guy who has a dodge charger!). I couldn't get enough of Daniel and loved that we got some of the story from his POV. The romance part was very well done. It wasn't all lovey-dovey, insta-romance, soppy crap. It was well paced and was very mature and realistic. I loved watching their feelings for each other slowly develop.
The rest of the characters were also very interesting and contributed greatly to the story. I can't wait to find out more about Kayden but I really hope there won't be a love-triangle in the second book. Please don't let there be a love triangle!
So overall a very unique and intriguing story packed with action, humor, love and heartbreak. A must for lovers of paranormal YA....more

Never has a such a short book left me so emotional. I loved Jonas from Intangible so when I heard he was getting his own book I was thrilled! But oh how my heart broke for him. Indomitable tells the story of Jonas' past and how he became a vampire. Being black he had to live as a slave and the things he went through were just horrible. It's just so heart-breaking to know that this is what people did actually go through years ago. Hearing the things Jonas did after he was turned you could fully understand why he did them. But even after all the pain and suffering he went through he still came out a better man, wanting to protect innocents. I can't wait for the next book to continue this amazing story.
