Book Review: 2 Treasure Boxes

Lexi is an average teenage girl, with the dream life until she discovers that in fact she is very different and things are not what they appear. First she wonders what is wrong with her, why does she keep fainting? Then things soon start coming apart. Before long she realizes she has super powers and she needs to come to turn with what is happening to and around her.

The Dragonfly Prophecy is Jacquelyn Castle's debut novel. It is a contemporary fantasy, but instead of

Lexi Blane is living a charmed life, with loving parents and a terrific boyfriend, William. Her life isn't perfect though. She keeps having fainting spells, lasting longer and longer. When she awakes, she finds herself in a different place, her parents are dead and William is only to be seen in dreams.

Lexi was trapped in a place between our world and the next, in a coma. As she struggles to cope with the loss of her old life, Lexi is visited by William, who tells her she can come back to them. A
This wasn't too bad! There was a lot of deus ex machina, or at least I felt that there was, and for a secret society, EVERYBODY seemed to know that it existed, but beyond that, I actually enjoyed it! It was different from the other paranormal romances I've read recently.

Although I found the plot interesting, I just never grew to like Lexi. There would be parts in the book where she would go on about how wonderful she was, phrasing it as "not bragging," but at the same time she would be very immature or stupid while she bragged about being incredibly smart. The story also had a love triangle between her and two guys who just both seemed too good to be true, who both adored her and put up with whatever childish thing she did (so maybe they were the idiots?).

I wasn't really sure what to make of The Dragonfly Prophecy when it first landed on my doorstep as I had never heard of this novel before, nor did I have any preconceptions. When I first saw it, I thought this book was all about dragonflies. It is not. Whether or not this is a good thing or bad thing is for you to decide, but, I repeat, The Dragonfly Prophecy is not about dragonflies. It is; however, about 17 year old Lexi Blane who seems to be living the perfect life. She has a boyfriend who ad ...more

I'm going to be honest. There is absolutely no way for me to review this book if I don't give you a little bit of spoilers. Apologies in advance guys! I'll keep them a minimum, and make sure to leave plenty for you to uncover when you dive into this book.

The Dragonfly Prophecy is an interesting book hybrid. On the one hand, it's a contemporary story about Lexis' life and the struggles that she faces as a teen. On the other hand, Lexi isn't your normal teenager at all. She has powers. Interesting

“The Dragonfly Prophecy” by Jacquelyn Castle is narrated by Lexi, a 17-year-old with a perfect life. Lexi is highly intelligent, has loving, caring parents who (mostly) don’t smother her, and she is dating handsome, rich, British William who is taking Lexi and her parents on a surprise getaway to a tropical island. Well, Lexi’s life is perfect apart from her frequent – and worsening – fainting spells, her horrendous dreams of dragonflies, and now she

I really enjoyed the concept of this book, but I have to admit I was very confused in the beginning, so much that I had to go back and read a few pages just to make sure I had it all right. This book is caught in between reality and the comatose dream like state. I think the reason I was so confused is that it was hard to understand the first 20 or so pages and to understand what was going on. After those pages I really got into this story and was a bit sad when it ended.

The plot in this book i

(2.5 stars) Not too bad. The concept was great but I did not enjoy the writing as much. Full review soon!

There were many times in the novel where I enjoyed some parts, and many times where I was a little confused.
The beginning was definitely confusing. As I mentioned in my 100 Pages post, I wasn’t sure what was going on until maybe 40 pages into the book. I also had to re-read a few pages a couple times to really grasp what was happening.
My favorite part of the novel would have to be

The story revolves around Lexi Blane. Lexi has fainting spells and horrible nightmares about dragonflies. She's fallen in love with a young, very rich British guy during a trip to England. William is on his way to meet Lexi and her parents. They are all going on a vacation together. But something goes wrong and Lexi is in the hospital hearing snippets of conversation. But she isn't quite sure what's going on. Really interesting book and I can't say anymore about it as that will give the story li ...more

Jacquelyn Castle hit it out of the park with her debut novel. The Dragonfly Prophecy is a unique YA story of teenager Lexi Blane caught in a love triangle with William and Chace. One is from this universe and the other is from an alternate universe. Little does Lexi know she is not who she thinks she is and her choices could impact the world as she knows it..forever.
I really enjoyed this book. Ms. Castle is brilliant and imaginative. In my opinion this book has not gotten the attention it shoul

I liked this book up until the last chapter. Even for a fantasy, things seemed to fall into place too easily and quickly.
