"You have very pretty eyes" he said softly. "They look like diamonds"
This book .... THIS BOOK. I truly, truly don't know how I feel about it. Do I love it, do I hate it? I just do not know (Which, btw is a pretty shit opener for a review. Hello, today I will be reviewing a book I both loved and hated)
I just ... I just don't know. THERE WERE BITS AND PIECES I REALLY LOVED and then there were bits that literally made my eyes roll into the back of my goddam skull due to how cliche they were. ...more
I'm not going to spoil the book for those who haven't read it yet!
Now, most of YA books are very unoriginal (they have the same plot over and over again) which makes them dull. However, this one keeps you guessing until the very end, and the story was refreshing.
When I was reading I was trying to guess what the characters were,
Ever ate too much candy? Ya know, when you eat so much you get sick from it but can't make yourself stop from eating more? Yea, this book = that.
Interesting paranormal concept. Somewhat original and I applaud the author for that. Sadly, not strong enough to make me wanna stick around.
The 'heroine' is beyond annoying - whiny, weak, immature, pathetic, TSTL. I don't need my heroines to be kickass right away, they can grow into that role, but there is only ...more
4.5 stars — It’s been a LONG time since I’ve read this one, and I’m finally coming back to finish the series!! Hopefully. I will admit that it didn’t suck me in quite as much as it did the first time. I’m not sure if it’s the mood I’m in, b/c it seems to be a common theme with books the last few weeks. Or even maybe that I’ve read book 2 now, and so I’m more reserved about some things. But either way, I still totally enjoyed myself, I just wasn ...more
OMGOMGOMG, FINALLY, A GOOD BOOK; I was beginning to lose hope in authors' with all the crappy books I've been reading, BUT THIS, THIS IS WHAT I NEEDED.
P.S. I really didn't expect this book to be good because the cover was so cheesy
I'M FILLED WITH SO MANY EMOTIONS, DO YOU WANT ME TO EXPLAIN THEM? OKAY HERE YOU GO-
(view spoiler)[SURPRISED: I'M SURPRISED THIS BOOK TURNED OUT SO GOOD
HAPPY: I'M HAPPY I HAVE FOUND THIS BOOK; I'M HAPPY KNOWING I GET TO READ THE 2ND BOOK RIGHT AWAY

I was gifted this arc by the Author, Rebecca Ethington in exchange for my honest review. This is the first book in the Imdalind Series. I have to admit upon first looking at the cover, I really didn't like it at all. After reading the book, I realise that the female on the cover is Joclyn who at one point in the book falls from a window, but I still think the cover could do so much more for this well written action packed book. The cover could j ...more
I thought the book was well written and flowed pretty well, for the most part. I liked the beginning and ...more
I'm glad I gave it a second chance.

I actually had to create a 'did not finish' shelf just for this book. I couldn't take the cliche romance and plot anymore. Maybe I'll try to finish it at a time I'm less irritated. ...more
Characters– Let’s start with favorite-
Ilyan- Amazing, smart, handsome, mature, royal attitude, kind. Just love him. ❤ Wyn- sweet, girly, fierce, adorable. Talon- loyal and good. Ryland (Ry)- second main character- Good, protective, perfect friend and boyfriend. Ovailia- mean, insolent, but love her sibling. I’m not judging her right now knowing what she has gone through and I’m sure there will be more to this character in next books of t ...more
First and foremost, I quickly grew tired of all of the Czech words and sentences without any translations. Then, the dialogue became quite repetitive until at one point, I went back to the previous page to make sure that I was actually reading the s ...more
Wasn't my cup of tea. For me the romance and the whole plot was weak and lacked in excitement and depth. Despite not liking the book, I also felt betrayed by the romance somehow.

Wow!! Just wow!!! What an amazing start to the Imdalind series. Kiss of Fire was a book that contained everything. Bursting with suspense, action, romance, passion, heartbreak and excitement. This was a book that I had a really hard time putting down because I was desperate to find out where the story was going to take me.
Joclyn Despain has had a mark on her neck since the age of five. Sensing that t ...more
Loved it! Kiss of Fire was such a brilliant book-just perfect.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book. I liked the idea, but I felt it could easily have ended up being a dull, predictable book. Turns out I didn't have to worry because this book was amazing. The twists, the turns, the surprises-they had me on the edge of my seat.
Joclyn was a wonderful heroine. She deals with everything thrown at her with ...more
I think I found a new author to squee over. I’m already in love with this book, I’m already in love this series. I think there are about 5 books in this series and I will read every single one. This book was very steadily paced. It had a really good flow. I just couldn’t get enough of it honestly. I’m a little infatuated with this author. It’s very suspenseful. It builds and it builds, but it’s not building so slow that you get bored, it keeps you engaged ...more
Nocturnal Predators Reviews
It's official, I hate this author for creating such a compelling and out-of-this-world novel. I mean that in an endearing and loving way. Half the year is gone and this is the first novel that I've read this year that was actually original and kept you guessing all though the ending, which is a cliff hanger (BOO!). Thank god I didn't pick this up when it released in November of last year.
The plot is so original and freeing that it's actually hard...more
This story was full of love, action, despair, and heartbreak. Joclyn was marked when she was five, but doesn't find out what it means until she is 16. But she keeps the mark hidden. Ryland is her best friend since childhood that she has slowly fallen in love with. They both have secrets hidden from each other. A big secret will tear them apart.
My heart breaks for Ryland, and Joclyn's broken heart. But I am so excited to continue this series and see what other heart wrenching plo ...more
