I was so offended by this book, I can't even...well, I can actually articulate it but seriously?

Okay, let's begin this as we usually begin reviews, or rather as I do. By talking about the characters. In this instance, there are very few characters that can be talked about. Estella, Edgar, Estella foster mom, Scott and his diminutive girlfriend and the nurse that I can't for the life of me remember the name of.

I have read a lot of books in my life, some I have loved and others I have hated. This

Okay so.... I read the first edition, granted. But there were WAY too many errors for this to have even been published. Sentences were lacking punctuation, words, and direction. The story was hard to read this way. Also, Edgar came off to me as a gay abusive father rather than a soul mate. He treated her like a kid the whole time. She did act childish at times, but mostly she acted stupid and bipolar. I grew tired of the constantly changing emotions between both characters. For example, her frie ...more

First of all let me say that I was lucky enough to win this book on a Goodreads giveaway, but it wasn't just any copy. It was signed and personalized by the author, Abra Ebner, herself. It arrived in my mailbox the day before my birthday, and I couldn't have been more thrilled. It was a perfect birthday present surprise.
I had read some of the other reviews that compared it to Twilight(minus the vampires), so I was definitely curious. I had enjoyed Twilight, but ended up disappointed in the serie

This book had the making of an incredible series. The concept/storyline was both fascinating and exciting. It is the story of creation, jealousy, love and betrayal set throughout time. The story was captivating. However, the writer's execution was sometimes tedious and dragged down with meaningless minutia. While I really did enjoy it, I put it down from time to time because I was bored with the writer's inability to concisely put down her ideas in fewer pages and words. I am in the process of r ...more

I give this book 3.5 stars. The first half reminded me too much of Twilight. I was ready to give up on it because of that. However, once I decided to just finish it, I realized the second half grew into it's own voice and really surprised me. I was curious enough by the end to want to read the sequel; Gaurdian. I'm still thinking about it and that's why my rating jumped from a 2 to a 3.5! Hopefully I can read the sequel some time in the near future :)

This story is perfect for those who love adventure, lost love, mystery, suspense and angels. You can't help but feel sorry for the heroine who's empty inside, forgotten her past and unable to feel -- wanting to heal her heart.And then add in a hero you aren't sure you can trust! Abra puts you into a world of beauty with her vivid descriptions of the powers of her characters and their surroundings. The end leaves you wanting more!

This book started out with a lot more potential than it lived up to. The main character was very intriguing. But about half way through the book, she started to get a bit boring. And while I understand that it was written as part of a series, I don't think that is an excuse to introduce elements that never get explained. It's also not an excuse to have a bad ending.

The premiss of the story was good and had the makings for a really good book.
I just felt as though the relationships were rushed. That was my biggest complaint with the book - just too rushed, not enough development or at least believable development.
The book ended on a sad note and I am hoping for a 'happily ever after' for the characters - isn't that what every girl wants? :o)

I don't know what it is, but I can't freaking stand this book. I hate the writing. I hate that the occurrence in the story are almost word for word twilight. Get a little creative please. I can't read the same story again. So made it to page 115 and I can't take another word of it.

"It is more than probable that I am not understood; but I fear, indeed, that it is in no manner possible to convey to the mind of the merely general reader, an adequate idea of that nervous intensity of interest with which, in my case, the powers of meditation (not to speak technically) busied and buried themselves, in the contemplation of even the most ordinary objects of the universe." - Edagr A ...more
