Breya was on the run from taking life but after 100 years she couldn't help it. When the urge took her she sucked the breath out of men extending her life, she was known as a breathtaker. Living all her life alone she has finally found a family that understands what she is going through. This was a surprisingly refreshing read, I loved how the story progressed and the end! Just need to say wow about the end, it was awesome but I'm not sure how I actually felt about it. Caleko was not all time fa [...]
Read as the Other selection for the January Paranormal Challenge held by YA Reader's Lounge---------------------------------------------------------------------------Well how to start a new year of reviews. With a book that has left me baffled as to how to rate it, that's how. I'll start by saying that the writing was beautiful. So much detail and description, I was enchanted within the first chapter. However it was around 50% of the way through that my attention started to wander. I felt there [...]
This book started out great, I was enchanted and enthralled by the writing- it was beautiful and poetic. However after a few chapters the author lost that touch. I also really like that this book is about a unique paranormal being with an interesting history/explanation of existence. While the book started out great, it never fully bloomed There seemed to be a lack of drive in the plot, and there was no real climax. I only kept reading because I had the time by the pool to do so I felt no urgenc [...]
This was an interesting read for me. I think the concept and problems faced by the main character were unique and interesting. I did feel perhaps that this particular novella spent too much "time at the beach". I was lacking a drive to finish the book after the first few chapters and finished the book in my spare time when I wasn't reading the more engrossing book I was also reading. Guilt and the ideas of right and wrong were very important concepts in this book and I would be interested to see [...]
2.5 starsSpoiler freeThe concept was really cool but the overall plot needs some work. I thought this would be a short, fun read but it was actually the longest 97 pages of my life. I felt like maybe the main character needed some work just overall. I can't really put my finger on it but it didn't hit in the face with awesome. Being 97 pages, it needed to have more something. It was interesting and the concept was cool. Plus, the cover is awesome.
meh I kept reading this book hoping there was going to be more but once it ended it was just Meh
Great concept though written in a pointless manner. Wont be reading this again
Very interesting concept and take on the sirens who walk the beach.YA Recommended
