did not like it
bookshelves: yuck, did-not-finish

Oh wow, this is a let down. The cover: amazing. I'm so ready to hop in the water with that hottie! But the book? It was BAD! There was a prophecy many years ago that "evil" would come back and a magic person (forgot the word from the book) was also going to be found. So fast forward to this disgustingly, squeaky clean kingdom with NO evil. The monarchs have not told the people about the prophecy because they didn't want to destroy their innocence. All of a sudden this girl is dropped in, and you catch her half way through her training (WTF?!) with her back story told in ill-placed flash backs. She gets a magic book to train with and we find out about the bad guy. He's the black to her white, literally... you can tell he's evil since he has the black Pegasus and she has the white one. (Ugh!) The editing was not atrocious and spelling was fine, but the word building was poor... lots of the same, simple words used often.

Turtles it was free and the cover is pretty!


Chelsea I thought the book was ok - but it needed some major developmental changes.


Kacey Ables Um I thought it was amazing maybe fantasy isn't your fortee


Angela Saucedo I totally agree with you! The way the story is written is just too elementary.
