"When the tailsman and the fair sovereign borne of the line are found in unity, she will possess the power to destroy our great people forever.".........

I went into this book with high hopes.

I have been in the mood for something different lately, and haven’t been able to find one that’s already in my kindle to read. I ran across this book, and read the blurb, then viewed the trailer. I’m a sucker for a good book trailer,

Sovereign Hope is a pretty nice and interesting read. While I did have some issues with the writing, primarily with the romance and sometimes a little on the heroine I can say that it had shown quite a number of potential to be a good series. Maybe just a little improvement here and there.

Farley was a character I couldn't identify with immediately. I wasn't sure what to really think of her character at first and it took me some times to get used to her. I don't know if she's tough or just reall

OMG OMG OMG!!!

I FINISHED THIS BOOK IN ONE NIGHT!!! I've never done that before. All i can say is that i enjoyed it I'm going to be a nightmare until the next book comes out. I loved the main characters. they were way more believable than some of the ones I've read about in books recently. Farley's amazing because she's strong and smart and she doesn't do retarded things every five minutes, which was refreshing.

Daniel was... sigh... so HOT! I really wish there had been more making out. If yo

Like I said, Wow, just awesomely WOW. Loved this story! It was amazing, captivating, enticing, all those words that describe how I can gush about this book.

Farley Hope is just trying to find her mother. 6 months after her disappearance and no word on what happened to her, Farley is being chased. She’s not paranoid. Literally, a black SUV full of big bad dudes have come for her in the middle of the road in L.A. standstill traffic. What do they want? And who is this breathtaking handsome man name

First off I would like to take this time to thank Frankie Rose for sending me a copy of Sovereign Hope to review. When I first read the blurb for Sovereign Hope I was instantly intrigued, I wanted to find out more about the book because there was just…something.

I am sure you all have had moments like those, where you just have that feeling that you know you will end up loving the book. But if the blurb wasn’t enough to get my attention, once I received the copy and saw the cover, it had m

Sovereign Hope is the first book in the Hope series by Frankie Rose. When approached about being part of this blog tour, I was excited to be part of it. Just from reading the synopsis, I knew I would like this book. I wasn't wrong. It was one of the best books I've read so far this year. I'm going to try hard not to gush, but I'm not making any promises, guys.

I felt so privileged to be among the first to get a sneak peek at this book. Being a bit older than the intended audience (ahem) I wasn't sure if I'd be able to fully immerse myself in YA Land. And as you can probably tell from the books on my reading list, I'm not normally a big fantasy gal either.
But...this book sucked me in right from the start and kept me intrigued til the last page. The characters were so wonderfully rounded, and I really connected with both Farley and Daniel straight away.

I really liked this book. I'm glad Frankie gave me the chance to read and review it and be apart of her blog tour. <3 A million thank you's to her gorgeous self! Sovereign Hope is different from your typical YA book. It has a pretty cool plot twist and is awesomely written.

The world of Sovereign Hope is total excitement. Dark, dangerous, and thrilling. It's new and it's very neat. I loved Frankie's writing. There's a city under

I was all over the map with my feelings on this story for awhile, but in the end I really liked the characters and enjoyed where the story went. My rating is somewhere between a 3.0-3.5 stars since there were some aspects of it that I didn't like.

Sovereign Hope starts out with a bang, so I was expecting this to be a thrill-ride of a story, but it slowed down a lot after the opening scene shocker. Farley is dealing with the strange visions she sees, desperately hoping her mother is somewhere out

Farley Hope is still dealing with the fallout of her mother's disappearance when Daniel, a mysteriously sexy guy, and the Reavers turn her world upside down. There is an entirely different world of super humans living beneath the city? Farley is a part of some ancient prophecy? What's a girl to do when all she wants is to find out what happened to her mother and get back to her normal life?

Sovereign Hope is definitely one of the best i

It had me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it. I had to put it down for a few hours and I was dying to get back to it.

Sovereign Hope is one of those books that once you start reading, you just can’t stop. I was instantly drawn to the story from the very first page.

One of the reasons why I was instantly intrigued by the book was the fact that Farley is destined to die. But of course, I knew she isn’t going to die because she’s the main character and what is a story without a main character, right? However, I picked the book because I was interested to know h

Sovereign Hope starts out with a girl named Farley, her Mother left work early one day and hasn't been seen since and that was six months ago. Farley is just shy of turned 18 and is in her last year of High School, her best friend Tess is all she has left since her Father died befo

Okay, here I go again.
I was planning on write this review since the day I finished reading the book, but guess what? It didn’t come good.
Every time I start writing I ended up repeating the “I loved it” phrase. And you know that’s really annoying!
Once again I don’t want to say a lot about the plot cuz it was so unique that I want you to live the thread getting caught surprised of such amazing scenes and characters.
Did I say that I loved Daniel? Naw, I haven’t mentioned him!

Severely disappointed. This was not what I had expected from the blurb. The whole book was basically Farley moping around in a bland, underground cavern. There was some action at times but it wasn't enough for a good suspenseful read.
The writing was poor, in my opinion and sometimes I found it hard to comprehend what she was trying to say. I don't mean to insult the author, but that was just something that bothered me a bit.
I did like Kayden though and would've liked to explore his character

Wow, wow, wow!!! I. Absolutely. Loved. This. Book! I won't say it reeled me in on the first page, but by the third page, I had a hard time putting this book down.

I loved the characters as well especially Farley, Agatha, and Daniel. I felt they were all well developed characters.

Yes, there is a bit of a love story going on but it doesn't take over the whole book which is nice. It's more of a backstory. There was also plenty of action.

This is definitely one of my favourite reads of forever! I'd d

Oh man! This was such a smashing book! I had to force myself to stop and write this review before diving right into book 2. I miss Farley & Daniel already! Farley was so brave and steady from the very beginning. Most people in her shoes would've fallen apart but she kept her faith and kept pushing forward no matter what. And what can I say about Daniel? He's an arrogant, rude, too-sexy-for-his-own-good, badass. I fell in love with him immediately. Their chemistry together was...well.. tense. Uns ...more

Pulse pounding action, kick ass female lead, breakout originality, smoking hot Daniel, frustrating romance…all equate to an extreme read...

Within the first 6 pages of this book I was doused with the inability to stop (or sleep). From reading the synop on GoodRead’s I already had a pretty good feeling I would, at the minimum, enjoy this book. I, by no means, was prepared for how MUCH I would enjoy this book. So much so that I’m quite sure that this has made it on to my top reads for 2012. SOVEREI

When I first started reading this book, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. For one thing, it just jumps right into the action without any build-up, so I started out just as confused as Farley about what the heck was going on. And you know what? It worked. Because I had to figure out what was going on, just like Farley. It wasn't long before I was totally sucked into the story. And what a story it is!

Sovereign Hope is the debut novel and first book in Frankie Rose’s Hope Series. When I read the description of this story, I figured another one of those teenage girls in distress, since it did not look like the lately normal YA dystopian theme.

The action in the book started pretty quickly, and even though at the beginning, you may not understand what is happening..neither does the heroine, you are pulled totally into the story. I was totally surprised, and pleasantly I might add, how Frankie Ro
