Review: Florence by Ciye Cho

Title: Florence
Author: Ciye Cho
Publisher: self-published
Publish date: July 1, 2012
Genre: YA, paranormal
Pages: 203 (eARC)
Source: From author for review
Synopsis:
Seventeen-year-old Florence Waverley is out of her depth. Literally. Kidnapped and taken below the waves to the mer world of Niemela, she is the ultimate gift for merman Prince Kiren: a human familiar tied to his side. But nothing is what it seems amid the beauty and danger of a dark ocean.

Every Niemelan has a role to play, from the mermaids who weave towers out of kelp to the warriors who fight sea monsters. But in trying to survive, Florence will end up in the middle of a war between the mer and the Darkness. A conflict that will push her between two brothers: Kiren, the charmer inexplicably drawn to both her and the monsters; and Rolan, the loner who has been pushing her away since the day they met. But in order to take a stand--and find out where she belongs--Florence will have to risk it all: her life, her heart... and her very soul.


If I had to choose one word to describe this book, I’d say it’s beautiful. The descriptions of the world of Niemela, the colours and surroundings, are so vivid and intricate that I could really picture the world hidden at the bottom of the ocean, surrounded by the Darkness. There was such a colourful picture laid out in my head thanks for the descriptive writing of Ciye Cho.

The story itself really sucked me in. Not right away though, because it is slow going when Florence first gets to Niemela. Once she finds out where she is and why, and suffers a failed escape attempt, it really is all about discovering Niemela: the world, the people, the animals. Eventually the story picks up as Florence starts to wonder about what kind of role she has in Niemela, and she becomes more attached to the world, and it’s two princes.

Florence was a great main character and narrator. She’s a girl who is used to being invisible, who observes people from the sidelines. Being thrust into Niemela where she stands outs like a sore thumb, is a highly uncomfortable situation for Florence. She hates how everyone stares at her, and talks about her, and knows who she is. But she grows so much over the course of the book. Her intentions are questioned, and she’s forced to re-examine her life. Who she is, what she has, and what she wants. She comes out as a different person in the end.

Overall, this was a really enjoyable book. My favourite thing about it was definitely the descriptions of Niemela. They really are beautiful. Ciye Cho definitely knows how to convey a picture through words.

Although I haven’t been able to find any information about it, I think there’s going to be a sequel. There’s definitely opportunity for it to be… And I would definitely be interested to see what would come next for Florence and the world of Niemela.

Thanks to Ciye Cho for the ebook review copy!

Waiting on Wednesday (61)





"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!





This week I'm waiting on new books from some of my favourite authors!


The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Publication Date: September 18, 2012

Synopsis:
“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love... or you killed him.”

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before.


Why I want it: Maggie Stiefvater. That's all the reason I need.


Deity (Covenant #3)
by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publication Date: November 6, 2012

**WARNING: SPOILERS**

Synopsis:
"History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time."

Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday--to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she's a goner... and so is Aiden.

If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"--which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time--she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.

But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she's caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed... and destroyed.

Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate...


Why I want it: I just finished reading Pure, book 2 in the Covenant series, and I'm just so excited to continue the story. And Jennifer's writing is fabulous!

What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?

I'm finally reading a book about merpeople! It's a review copy of Florence by the self-published author, Ciye Cho. I'm really enjoying his merpeople lore and the world he's created in the Darkness of the ocean. Here's a teaser:




A voice interrupted my thoughts. "Every being must have a role in Niemela. A purpose and a reason for being," said Rolan in a low, even tone. I turned to see him floating above me, his eyes focused on the warriors outside. "But there is no role for a human in our world..." His gaze settled on me, and though his voice was calm, the threat in his eyes was unmistakable. "... And to exist without a role is a most dangerous predicament," he added.


I've honestly been sucked into this book, and the underwater world of Niemela. It's a fascinating place. Not only is the setting amazing, but the characters have totally caught my attention as well! I can't wait to see how this one will end.

Feel free to share your teasers with me. I'd love to see what you're reading!

Review: Rapture by Lauren Kate

Title: Rapture
Author: Lauren Kate
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Publish Date: June 12, 2012
Genre: YA, paranormal
Pages: 458
Source: NetGalley
Series: Fallen
1. Fallen (review)
2. Torment (review)
3. Passion (review)
4. Rapture

**WARNING: SPOILERS**
Synopsis:
RAPTURE, the fourth & final FALLEN novel, is the Lauren Kate book the world has been waiting for.

The sky is dark with wings...

Like sand through an hourglass, time is running out for Luce and Daniel. To stop Lucifer from erasing the past, they must find the place where the angels fell to earth.

Dark forces are after them, and Daniel doesn’t know if he can do this—live only to lose Luce again and again. Yet together they face an epic battle that will end with lifeless bodies... and angel dust. Great sacrifices are made. Hearts are destroyed.

And suddenly Luce knows what must happen. For she was meant to be with someone other than Daniel. The curse they’ve borne has always and only been about her—and the love she cast aside. The choice she makes now is the only one that truly matters. In the fight for Luce, who will win?

The astonishing conclusion to the FALLEN series. Heaven can’t wait any longer.


Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin. This book really wrapped up the series, and it did it in a great way. There were a few things I didn’t see coming, but also some I did. What I did really like about this book was how it jumped all around the world again. Yes, that happened in Passion, but this time Luce and Daniel were actually together.

I felt so much relief as Luce finally figured out her past lives and who she really was. It was such a fulfilling feeling to have everything come together and to get some honest-to-goodness answers. I felt like Luce, like finally knowing who she was just completed me. This book really makes you feel complete, whole, and gives great closure.

I was sad that there wasn’t more Cam in this novel. He played a much bigger part in the first and second books, and I feel like he should’ve had more of a part in Luce finally discovering who she was. He was there, but I think he should’ve had a bigger part. There aren’t many new characters in this book, with the exception of Dee, and she was a great character. She had such a huge role, but I don’t want to tell you exactly how. Bill/Lucifer kept making appearances in Luce’s memory. I liked how we were shown the kind of impact he had on Luce in the long run. His influence on her definitely made a difference to the way she acted in this book.

All in all, I’m sad that this series is over, but it was wrapped up very well. The ending was bittersweet, for sure. I wish that there was another way for it to end! Like the way it does in my head. But if I can’t have that, I’m glad it ended the way it did. I won’t be forgetting this series anytime soon. It will always hold a special place in my heart.

Thanks to NetGalley and Random House for the ebook review copy!

This week I'm reading Pure, the sequel to Half-Blood, by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I'm remembering why I love Jennifer's writing so much. Here's a teaser:



Seth and I weren't getting along at the moment. In our last training session, he'd "accidentally" hit me with a blast of pure energy and I'd "accidentally" thrown a rock at his head.

Perhaps I did have a problem with throwing things.





*Snicker* I like Alex. The way Jennifer writes her is just so witty and sarcastic, and it makes me giggle and smile a lot. I can't wait to see how this book unfolds. I've heard amazing things!

Feel free to share your teasers with me! I'd love to see what you're reading.

Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Title: Shatter Me
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publish Date: November 15, 2011
Genre: YA, dystopian, paranormal
Pages: 338
Series: Shatter Me
1. Shatter Me
2. Unravel Me (February 5, 2012)
3. Untitled (November 2013)
Synopsis:
Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war-- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting as The Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel.


I fell in love with Tahereh’s writing within the first few pages. She so clearly expresses Juliette’s thoughts and torments. Her descriptions are magical. The emotions flows so strongly from the words on the page. I would compare her writing to the style of Maggie Stiefvater, which, if you know me, is probably one of the best things I can say about an author. I was entranced, I was invested, I was Tahereh’s from beginning to end. And she did not disappoint.

Juliette’s story is so heartbreaking and so convoluted. When we meet her, she’s a broken girl, not having talked to anyone, touched anyone, seen anyone in roughly 9 months. But when Adam is deposited in her cell room, everything changes. Soon, Juliette is taken to a compound where Warner, a leader in The Reestablishment, wants to win her affection and partnership. He is obsessed with her and craves having her as a weapon for The Reestablishment. Here, Juliette has to face more terrors than the solitude and nightmares of her time at the “mental institution.”

The development of Juliette as a person is phenomenal. She changes so much throughout the novel. She goes from a near-insane person who fears herself and her life, to someone so much stronger, much more confident; someone prepared to meet the world head on. No spoilers, so that’s all I can say. But I love her to death. She’s one of my favourite characters ever, and I think it’s amazing that her mind, and her transformation, can be conveyed so clearly through writing.

The other characters are fantastically written as well. For example: Warner. I hate Warner. I think he’s a poor excuse for a man. I think he’s vile and twisted. I don’t understand how anyone could ever be “Team Warner.” It’s morally wrong in my books. Adam on the other hand… well I have to admit I get flutters in my tummy thinking about him. He’s sexy and mysterious and vulnerable, and just so fantastic overall. I can’t wait for you to read this book so you can discover him for yourself.

I’m so excited for the next book in this series. The sad part is that we have to wait until February 2013 to read Unravel Me. But seriously, if you haven’t read this book yet, get to it ASAP. It’s fantastic. Fantastic writing, fantastic characters, fantastic fantastic fantastic! A new favourite.

Waiting on Wednesday (60)





"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!





This week I'm waiting on two debut YA novels!


The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long
Publication date: August 16, 2012

Synopsis:
A darkly compelling mix of romance, fairy tale, and suspense from a new voice in teen fiction

The trees swallowed her brother whole, and Jenny was there to see it. Now seventeen, she revisits the woods where Tom was taken, resolving to say good-bye at last. Instead, she's lured into the trees, where she finds strange and dangerous creatures who seem to consider her the threat. Among them is Jack, mercurial and magnetic, with secrets of his own. Determined to find her brother, with or without Jack's help, Jenny struggles to navigate a faerie world where stunning beauty masks some of the most treacherous evils, and she's faced with a choice between salvation or sacrifice--and not just her own.


Why I want it: I like stories about Fae and the pull they have on humans. And the cover makes it seem like such a fantastical novel, filled with romance. Also, I love reading debuts.


Nerve by Jeanne Ryan
Publication date: September 13, 2012

Synopsis:
A high-stakes online game of dares turns deadly.

When Vee is picked to be a player in NERVE, an anonymous game of dares broadcast live online, she discovers that the game knows her. They tempt her with prizes taken from her ThisIsMe page and team her up with the perfect boy, sizzling-hot Ian. At first it’s exhilarating—Vee and Ian’s fans cheer them on to riskier dares with higher stakes. But the game takes a twisted turn when they’re directed to a secret location with five other players for the Grand Prize round. Suddenly they’re playing all or nothing, with their lives on the line. Just how far will Vee go before she loses NERVE?

Debut author Jeanne Ryan delivers an un-putdownable suspense thriller.


Why I want it: Sounds slightly similar to The Hunger Games, but something about it reminds me of a video game, which makes it stand out. I like that it's not terrifying from the beginning, but takes a turn for the worse. Sounds like a fast-paced debut!

What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?

Happy Book Birthday to Lauren Kate's Rapture!

I got an eARC of the final book in the Fallen series a couple of weeks ago, so I was lucky enough to start it early. Here's a teaser for you:



The memory was simple, joyful, and hers.

Lucifer couldn't have it. He could not take it - or any other memory - away. Not from Luce, not from the brilliant, surprising, imperfect world sprawling out below her.

Her body bristled with determination to defeat him, and with the rage from knowing that because of what he was doing, because she had rejected his wishes, all this might disappear.



Sorry for the long one! But I love how Luce is finally figuring out who she is, in this life and her past ones, and her determination to win. I'm sad this is the last book in the series, but also excited to see how Lauren ends it.

Feel free to share your teasers! I'd love to see what you're reading.

Review: Intangible by J. Meyers

Title: Intangible
Author: J. Meyers
Publisher: self-published
Publish Date: January 31, 2012
Genre: YA, paranormal
Pages: 264 (ebook)
Source: From author for review
Series: Intangible #1
0.5. Intuition
1. Intangible
2. Untitled
Synopsis:
Twins Sera and Luke Raine have a well-kept secret—she heals with a touch of her hand, he sees the future. All their lives they’ve helped those in need on the sly. They’ve always thought of their abilities as being a gift.

Then Luke has a vision that Sera is killed. That gift they’ve always cherished begins to feel an awful lot like a curse. Because the thing about Luke’s ability? He’s always right. And he can’t do anything about it.


Intangible was written in a really interesting way. It was told from third person, but we didn’t only follow Luke and Sera’s specific stories. We also followed Fey, Jonas, and Marc. These five characters were all used to tell Luke and Sera’s story, and I thought it was awesome. I loved watching the characters piece together the story, while I knew things they didn’t. That being said, J. Meyers was also careful to not give up too much information. So I was still able to be surprised and guessing throughout the book.

I really enjoyed all of the characters. None of them made a huge impression individually, but I love the dynamic of the five of them together. I especially liked the relationship between Luke and Sera. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have such a strong bond with anyone, but it sounds fantastic. Marc and Jonas were good characters. I could never really decide if I liked or hated either of them. Their parts in the story were just so open-ended. I thought it was a bit odd when it seemed like there may be a romantic connection between Jonas and Sera, but just because he seemed so much more like a protective father (or older brother) figure to her. One character I never really understood was Luke and Sera’s mother. I found she acted and sounded more like a teenager than any of the other characters in the book. It kind of threw me for a loop every time she was in a scene.

The story was exciting, it kept me reading. There were a few times I was surprised by things I hadn’t expected to happen. I think my favourite character to follow was Marc because his story was the most intriguing to me. I wanted to know who he was working for, why he had the problems he did, and so on. All the action that surrounded Jonas was fun. I liked reading him in action.

Intangible is a book that will keep you reading. It gives you a lot of characters to be interested in, and one of them is bound to hold your attention. The mystery of who Luke and Sera are, and how it’s not entirely unraveled yet, means I will definitely be awaiting the next book in the series.

Thanks to the author herself for the ebook review copy!

Review: Destiny and Deception by Shannon Delany

Title: Destiny and Deception
Author: Shannon Delany
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Publish Date: January 31, 2012
Genre: YA, paranormal
Pages: 289
Source: Borrowed
Series: 13 to Life #4
1. 13 to Life (review)
2. Secrets and Shadows (review)
3. Bargains and Betrayals (review)
4. Destiny and Deception
5. Rivals and Retributions (August 7, 2012)

**WARNING: SPOILERS**
Synopsis:
The sensational fourth novel in the 13 to Life series sees Jessica and the Rusakuvas fighting to overcome one of their biggest challenges yet--the possibility of a cure for lycanthropy.

With the threat of the mafia seemingly gone and the company's headquarters in Junction destroyed, Pietr Rusakova is adjusting to being a normal teen and Jess is realizing normalcy may not be what she wanted after all. But both Jess and Cat know the truth--that normal can't be taken for granted. Their precious cure isn't permanent--and when a new danger stalks into their small town, Alexi decides he must overcome his issues with the mother who abandoned him to be raised by wolves and make a brand new deal to save his adopted family.


I didn’t know what to expect from this book. I thought: How can you have a werewolf story without any werewolves? I found out soon enough when I was a few chapters in and saw: Marlaena. A new narrator? A new werewolf narrator?? It was so interesting! I didn’t know anything about Marlaena or her pack, and for the first while, her story wasn’t even connected to that of Jessie and the Rusakovas. It was like reading a completely different story within the one I picked up to read. And when they did connect, old problems came rushing back for the Rusakovas.

Life for Jessie is tough now. I know, it was tough before, but this is a different type of tough now. Pietr has become this entirely different person and Jessie’s realizing that the wolf was such a big part of Pietr and she’s lost some of the things she loved most about him when he took the cure. She’s learning one of those life lessons: don’t try to change anyone, especially if you love them. And she’s learning it the hard way.

Although it didn’t seem like there was anything big happening in this book, especially compared to the last one, it still kept me really interested and wanting to read more. Part of that was because of the addition of Marlaena. Part of it was because I knew what Jessie and Cat knew, and I was basically waiting for the s--- to hit the fan; for something to happen to force the change in Pietr and Max, for danger. Danger came, s--- hit the fan, but not the way I was expecting it to.

I think the best part of this book was the page between the last page and the acknowledgements. I became quite familiar with this page. I stared at this page for a good long time because I couldn’t actually believe there was no writing on it. That the way things were written on the previous page was actually the way it was going to end. It was hard accepting that.

This fourth book is great. It’s not my favourite, but I definitely enjoyed it as much as the others. It sets things up well for a grand finale. And, oh goodness, I can’t wait for that finale! This is one of the best werewolf stories I’ve ever read and I think everyone should read these books!
