I have to say that the first thing to capture my attention with this book are the characters. They were written with such character and passion! I thought that all the characters were captivating, sincere and real. The chemistry between Ethan and Jayna was riveting. They were a united front from the moment they met.

Considering that this is the first book in a series, I found that the author was able to establish the characters and attract the attention of her audience with a plot that completel

This book had a unique concept that intrigued me throughout the novel. I especially enjoyed the start where Jayna found out about the Astral Plane, met Ethan and the demons were introduced to the story. It made me think this book was going to take a different path to the one it did. The characters were developed well and were consistent throughout the entire book. Their speech, attitudes and reactions to certain situations were believ

Jayna suddenly finds herself in a toxic plain surrounded by demons. Thankfully she isn't alone, she finds another, Ethan, who is an Astral Warrior. Ethan takes her to meet the Astral Masters who tell her all about her mission and gift her with a special bracelet to help protect her and prove that it wasn't just a dream. While Ethan teaches her how to control her new powers and explains the rules, she does a little exploring on her own and finds that the astral world holds a lot of answers to ver ...more

After she meets with the Ascended Masters and returns to her home bearing gifts from the Astral Plane, she must admit what Ethan says is true - she is an Astral traveler who has been chosen to battle demons. As Jayna's feelings for Ethan blossom, she discovers her nighttime ...more

It took me sometime to drawn into story, but at the end i cant wait to start the second book. It is different from what I usually go for, but it was worthy. It starts with familiarizing the reader with astral plane and the main characters. Altough the book is YA and paranormal, it does not contain the usual triangle love interest, does not contain self doubting issuies, am i freak problems or is he really in love me troubles. It is love at first sight and they are soul mates. Nobody has self con ...more

I really like the concept of doing battle for the good of the universe on the astral plane. The idea of champions going into battle to defend Earth from the forces of darkness is intriguing. Having the top two champions fall in love as inspiring.

The only reason I didn't give it 4 stars was the spoken text. People often use contractions when they speak to one another. The book, while technically correct, doesn't. It made the banter between the characters a little stiff.

With that said, I loved the

So Jayna is destined to be part of the astral army. She just doesnt know it yet. Some how when Ethan is in the heat of battle he calls for help and here comes Jayna. They instantly click but are forbidden from meeting on earth. What will happen?
I loved this story. It jumps around some so you really have to pay attention. Sometimes jayne is talking, sometimes ethan is talking. Anyway I think this is a great story. I moves at a decent pace. Some places it could move faster. I was sucked in. I carr

Writing poor reviews is always the hardest part of having a blog, especially when I really wanted to like the book. With an original idea and the potential of a cute romance paired with action and excitement I was really looking forward to reading The Astral Ordinance. Even though the novel did have its redeeming qualities I just found that the redeeming qualities it did have didn’t outweigh the things that made this novel diffic
- This book is for those who like: young adult, romance, and paranormal books
- It contains: astral plane, karma, visions, reincarnation, vegetarians, mind reading and demons
- I didn’t get the overall conflict of the book, so I’m assuming there wasn’t one. Just when I thought a comment or note in the book meant a potential overall story conflict, it just disappeared…maybe in the next book?
- Any conflict written in the book is resolved quickly – very quickly. It sort of followed along the lines of
