science fiction stuff
I loved reading this book. It's a very interesting take on the over-popularized subject of paranormal youth with a talent for magic. This book very much stands out among others that I've read in this genre. It took me a couple of pages to realize that this story was different, in a good way, and I just couldn’t stop reading.
The main hero is Rome, a guy who goes to a new and weird school. That school has two types of students, the regular students and ones who receive a special scholarship and are "gifted"... Well, needless to say that they are gifted in a very special way. That premise alone captivated my attention and I just kept turning pages from that point on.
The book is well-written and thoroughly entertaining. I think it has a real chance of going big because people are gonna notice it. Also, besides the plot which is great, I loved the unique atmosphere about this book and it's not something that you find in every book. Authors did a great job starting new series. I’m looking forward to read the next book.
This is such a wonderful book, beautifully-written, captivating, filled with adventures, drama and love, and pirates. I haven't yet read the first two books in a series but now I'm gonna. I got attached to the lives of the characters and I want to know more about them. The author is definitely skillful with words and knows how to write a story that would captivate readers’ hearts. A great read in this genre, no question, it's a 5 star.
First of all, I like it that the Author has researched the field before starting to write the book and he knows what he is talking about. There are actually facts and things that happened in real life mixed with fiction in this book and that is very thrilling and exciting to know before you even start reading.
I like that the story is well mapped-out, meaning that the place where everything is happening and the key characters are nicely described in the beginning and that gives you the ability to visualize it all and let the story in, so to speak. The main heroine, Penny Lane is a very approachable, next-door type of girl with a spark in her eyes. She helps people investigate paranormal incidents that they think happened to them, sometimes there is nothing paranormal about those cases but sometimes there is…
It was a great read, well-paced and thrilling. It was everything that the title of the book promised and more. I completely and totally enjoyed it even though it is not something I usually read. I think this book is a great way to start the series about Penny and her adventures. I would definitely love to read more of it.
Among the myriads of gay reads this one clearly stands out. I was pulled into the story right from the first page. It's all the things I love - the high school romance, one boy is out of the closet and another one is not, the bullying issue, there's a third boy getting in the picture and so forth. Everything a good gay read needs is there. And it all is put together nicely and skillfully. The last time I was enjoying the story so much was when I was reading the Geography Club. I’m looking forward to read the sequel as I already got attached to the characters.
I enjoyed this one 100%. 5 stars.
Such a great novelette, beautifully-written, amazing characters and witty dialogs. I read it in one take as the story grabbed me and captivated me and I just couldn't stop reading until I finished the whole thing. I was impressed and enjoyed practically every page of it. The story is mysterious and suspenseful and the Author builds tension skillfully. The story is about Stuart Mason, a charismatic man, who finds himself renting a room in the hotel that was booked for somebody else and that is where the things begin to happen. I was so intrigued by the set-up and wanted to find out what happens next and I wasn’t disappointed when I did. It was great. I really enjoyed it. The story has everything it needs to have and was just perfect from my point of view. Great one! I recommend.
I am a big fan of reads like that and I thought the book was engaging from the very first page, well-written and nicely-paced.
The story starts off with the childhood memories of the main hero, Rhett, as he is hiding from the Authorities and waiting for the Adoption Day. The nicely described post-war ruins, the dominance of nature over the tumbledown cities that no longer are up-to-standard for the Authorities themselves provide a nice shelter for the orphans minus the constant danger of being caught which is what happens and Rhett gets civilized and fixed and adopted and the story begins... He gets his education and place in the society and finds out about all sorts of problems that the sun is going to cause in the near future... and the ways to escape them… and the adventures begin.
*END OF SPOILER*
I really enjoyed reading it and kept on turning pages ready to find out what happens next. I like that kind of books and it very-well resonated with me. I think anyone who loves science fiction would enjoy this one as much as I did.
