Another free YA novel read on the iPhone. This one was disappointing more in all the potential that was wasted. First off, it needed an edit. There were at least a couple times that words were blatantly wrong. This interrupted the flow of a voice that otherwise was one of the better ones I've read in these YA freebies.

The biggest problem was not the concept, but the execution. Things were rushed and not fully explored. Information was given to us in exposition that could have been shown. This w

Time's Daughter was a very well written book. The author used great adjectives and descriptions. I immediately fell in love with the book. The ending however, made me a little angry..... The book ended very abruptly and in my opinion was very rushed. The author dropped the good act she'd held throughout the entire book and finished the book.

I liked it a lot, although there were several grammar/spelling errors throughout (I.e. desert instead of dessert.)

Aeon Still is just an average teenage girl trying to get through high school while under the watchful eye of a camera crew. Anya Breton did a good job at unraveling the story of a girl with a lot of secrets in her novel Time’s Daughter. Aeon is selected to be featured in a documentary about the average small town teens. It wasn’t just Aeon who got chosen though; five others students from her school were also chosen. One of those five was the new kid in school, Alex Chattan, the boy that has take ...more

There is a new guy at school, Alex and he also, is chosen for the documentary. But then something happens that changes her life.

Time's Daughter is one of the most ADORABLE books I've ever read. Heartwarming with more than a few thrilling scenes, this book is just amazing!

Aeon is a lovely character. She's quiet and a talented artist. She's very brave, but not to the point of stupidity, and doesn't hesitate to protects those she loves. I loved that she was able to realistically accept her new reality when she found out about all the supernatural goings on. She was

Aeon is for all intents and purposes a normal teenage girl which is why a film crew is documenting her life for 6months. It's definitey not something she wanted to do but they needed the money for her mothers medical bills so I guess six months isn't a long time right?

Gratefully she's not alone as 5 others were chosen, one being The new kid Alex. A friendship is kindled during Photography class and the pair grow closer, both nice normal teenagers. LOL.

What no one knows is that Aeon

I am not too sure where I got this book from, but let me tell you, I do regret even reading it in the first place.

It starts off with a young girl named Aeon who finds out she has the ability to stop time. She had a dream and realized her father was – get this – Chronos, the God of Time and told her that she had to save mankind or something like that. She is being videotaped for some reality show and then a new kid comes into town. He turns out to be a shifter who can turn into a jaguar. They fa
This book i am delighted to say ranks in some of my all time favorites. Because it was so good i will probaly NEVER finish reading this. Ill just reread it and reread it until i am so tired of it that i know it by heart!

It starts out with this normal nerdy girl (like me! :3), named Aeon, who lives in a camera infested apartment with her mom because she has been selected to be followed around by a camera man for a documentary abt. a "normal" teenager. But soon into the book you realiz

I really did enjoy this book more than I thought I would. But I noticed a few things that kept me from giving it a higher rating. Her whole being the daughter of the god of time, seemed a waste. If others out there had time abilities (they even had a name, time witches) then what made her special? A dream that is never gone over in depth and we never see? A promise of coming danger that almost seemed wrapped up too quickly? I kind of felt it was thrown in there just to make her more important. T ...more

This really was a very sweet story. Though a bit different from anything I've read before, which is good! I wanted different. The characters of Aeon and Alex were very lovable. Aeon was very quirky and a bit sarcastic. Anya did a great job of making her very likable. And Alex was great with his air of mystery in the beginning and then just enough struggle to make you question is he friend or foe?

There were a few places in the book with typ

3.5/5 stars

Loved the idea for the story, but it didn't progress the way I'd hoped. Still, I really liked it.

I found that this was a very fast-paced book. When I was reading it, it didn't at all feel like I was reading a 500 page book. It kept me interested throughout, but the ending left me disappointed. It felt like the book was rushed to be finished, and was left with lots of loose ends. I'm not sure if there is a sequel to come (I hope there is), but as of right now th

1) Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

2) Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

3) Synopsis: Aeon Still doesn’t like or feel normal in high school. That is before she is pick to be part of a documentary which only adds to her discomfort. What she doesn’t know is that she isn’t normal.

4) Feelings: I will say this up front I am a big fan of Anya as a person. When she put this book up for free I jumped at the chance to read it. She describes it as her badly written YA book. This is not a badly writ

This book intrigued me when I picked it up. I enjoy paranormal books, and was excited about the prospect of a girl who is the daughter of a God. I enjoyed the story a lot until the first twist came, then I lost a little bit of my enchantment with the book. I was looking forward to reading a book that wasn't filled with witches, vampires, and the usual paranormal entities of late, but apparently I wasn't going to get it from this book. I felt the rising action was a little underdeveloped to the b ...more

I loved the characters of Aeon and Alex. Their relationship was adorable. I definitely fell in love with Alex. I enjoyed the story though I felt it was only half written. I had so many unanswered questions and unfinished storylines when I finished the book. This story has sooo much potential to be a great novel. More action near the beginning, more explanation about Aeon's mysterious father, the shapeshifters and the creatures would have really helped with that. They almost came out of nowhere. ...more

Aeon Still is 6 years old and apart of the documentary about average american teenagers. Little do they know, Aeon is not your average teenager. Her father is Chronos, the god of time, she has great power and needs to keep the town safe. While, having cameras on her 24/7. Her life turns more complicated when Alex shows up in her life.

I liked this book because it was interesting to read. Who knew Aeon can stop and rewind time? I always thought time was intangible. Its nice to look at it with a n

One night Aeon has a dream about a man who claims to be her father. He tells her he is Time and he's given her his legacy to stop a dangerous threat that will make itself known in her town soon. After that Aeon discovers she can stop time. Now she has to conceal this from the crew filming her as part of a documentary. Theres also a new boy named Alex who isn't what he seems either.

This story has a pretty interesting premise and I did like the story, but it didn't get as in
When I got this book, I was excited to read it. It sounded interesting and I like greek mythology. I assumed there'd be some in this, and there wasn't really. That's probably why I didn't like it as much as I would've if I'd thought it was simply about a girl who could stop time.
This book was nice and cute, and I liked Aeon for the simple reason she wasn't normal. For a standalone book I got for free, it wasn't bad.

I absolutely loved this book as in L-O-V-E-D not just LOVED or Loved or loved or liked. I recommend it to everyone I know. Hopefully there will be another book to this book! I will read more books from this author. It kept wanting me to rush reading just to see what would happen next, (though let me assure you I did not skim over just to see what the next words would be.) It almost had a suprize at every page turn.

This book was really cute. The two main characters are great together however the author manages to give the book more of a super natural feel. The book wasn't too romantic. It was a nice short read. My only complaint after reading this book was that I wanted to read a sequel!

I think the proof reading department ran out of time in the last 4-5 chapters. There were quite a few grammar errors in them. The book was a ok read for something to pass the time but the ending was a big let down. Since it was free I can't complain too much.

Surprisingly entertaining, though 1/2 the book is exposition & then the ending is rushed. Reads like it should be the first in a series but is a stand-alone.

Interesting concept for a book. My complaint though ....too many unanswered questions.

It could be a stand alone book if the gaping holes where filled in.
