This was really, really good. And the author did an exceptional job with the editing. The first chapter of this book is on the page, and I'd urge you to read it. A self published gem.There's action and excitement throughout, and Ms. Dantone plays her cards very close to her chest, not allowing the reader to know everything that's going on until the end. And I doubt that anyone will predict what's coming. Kris is a fantastic character who I took to straight away. She's the sole survivor of a rec [...]
If there is one kind of romance I really love, it’s the protector-charge, mentor-novice type. You know, the kind where the hero falls in love with the girl he is sworn to protect (and under no circumstances fall for). Or the combat instructor who falls for his pupil a la Dimitri and Rose (Vampire Academy). It’s the buried/forbidden feelings, the banter, the antagonism, the trying to remain professional but secretly falling in love. It is the old love/hate relationship. Gets me every time – [...]
1/5; 1 star; DNFThis book had the potential in terms of world building to be a pretty good UF/PNR YA story. I enjoy YA stories where the youth and enthusiasm of the main characters brings a lot to the adventure. In this book, I made it through about 3 hours of the audiobook before giving up. The story kept getting lost in the inner dialogue of a crushing, drooling teenaged girl. Ugh.
Overall, this is a solid paranormal with plenty of action and teenage drama. There were a few twists and turns to the plot that while I could totally see them coming, were still enjoyable. There were repeated scenes, at times, which I found disconcerting but overall a great start to a series. My Rating: 4 stars
The book is beautifully written very descriptive it makes you feel as though you are there with Nathan and Kris, walking through the woods at the cabin.I speak fluent Greek living in Greece since 10 and being Married to a Greek, i kinda caught on the skotadi would be something to do with Hades. The storyline is compelling trying to discern anything is like waiting for an egg to boil though it takes forever.I wouldn't call it a love triangle as such as i only really feel the chemistry between Nat [...]
She’s had dreams of a handsome young man saving her, she even “knows” she has seen him in the flesh before, long ago, but nothing prepared seventeen year old Kris when the mysterious Nathan shows up in her life and this time he stays. Her lifelong hero has come to life, to her rescue, once again, but his demeanor is less than angelic.A “normal” teen, Kris is more than shocked when the hot guy in school befriends her. Alec is all brightness and sunshine in a world that hasn’t always b [...]
First of all, a disclaimer. I did NOT enjoy this book. I finished it because I didn't feel like adding another DNF to my bookpile. If you (wrote or) liked the book, good for you! Isn't it awesome that we all have different opinions? YAY for individuality! You might not want to read my thoughts on the book, however. If you haven't read it, you might also want to steer clear. I have spoiler tagged the biggest ones, BUT there are still spoilers here. Onwards - to the review! Here we go:Mutilated Gr [...]
Quintessential "teen-ish" read with all the right ingredients:1. A delicious, electrifying love triangle2. Unique take on Greek mythology3. Action, adventure, & mystery4. Fast-paced & descriptive5. Exciting twists6. Sex free Ok, so IGNITED is most likely not going to be the next best YA-PNR. You WILL come across some very predictable, and cliché scenarios. By no means would I consider this book my new favorite. The whole aging process kind of tripped me up, and I thought I’d be disgus [...]
I can't believe this was a debut. This book was fantastic and very well written. I was immediately drawn into the characters and could not put this book down. I messed up and started this book at 10 pm, don't be like me, start reading this at a reasonable hour. The characters were well developed and they were very great together. I loved their dynamic especially since they were in such insane situations. I love how well the author wrote gray area into good vs evil. Let's be hones this is not alw [...]
Enjoyable and entertaining. Though by the end of the book I wanted to take my shoe off and BEAT Kris over the head. Seriously. How many times does the girl have to turn into a weeping mess. It felt like at every turn, the girl would survive the latest crap of her life pretty darn well and then ruin it all with big fat stinking tears!SUCK IT UP WOMAN! it's embarrassing. OUTSIDE of the pathetic sobbing at every turn, the rest of the story was very interesting. A page turner that kind of sneaks up [...]
Oh dear. Where to begin? Well, I really can't get behind books like this anymore. I really enjoy the plots and environments that tend to come out of good YA, but I felt like the plot in this book was secondary to the romance -- and a lot of plot points seemed contrived to push the protagonist and her love interest together. Instead of having external forces pushing them apart (which probably would have been more interesting), the two characters essentially spend the whole book together and just [...]
I really liked this book! I thought Kris was very relatable and handled her situations throughout the book in a very realistic way. She was fierce and loyal but not always smartwhich kept her in interesting predicaments. Ignited held my attention the whole way through. I appreciated the unique take on the war between the Greek gods.Her relationship with her guardian, Nathan was a very tense and sometimes confusing one. I found myself frustrated that he wasn't more forthcoming with her, and even [...]
This was a promising start to a new series. It ended a little abrupt, but I look forward to continuing the story.
Reasonable but predictable YA paranormal romance with a Greek mythology theme.
Ignited Book #1By Desnie Dantone.Absolutely awesome! Desnie Dantone again blows you away with her fabulous writing style, expressive and addictive imagination.She is truly an amazing author and I suggest if you haven't tried her books it's a must!I first got caught on her "Tagged" Series based in apocalyptic times with some swoon-worthy down right cocky characters."Ignited" Is hands down bloody brilliant! We see great and very likable main characters "Kris" She is easy to like, interesting to fo [...]
I really thought that this book was going to be a good one only to end up disappointed to find that the story was starting to become predictable and not in an entertaining way. I found this to be very disappointing considering the start and till about halfway through had me hoked and deeply engrossed only to feel like I had wasted my time and could have read another book instead.
Terrific story. Awesome characters. Slooowww burning love. I don't give many 5 star reviews, but this one deserves it.
Interesting story, lots of twist and turns. Well worth the read. Thank you to the author.
**I'd like to thank author Desni Dantone for providing me with a copy of Ignited exchange for an honest review**Ignited, Desni Dantone's debut novel is a fierce, heart pounding, heart racing read full of action, danger and just the perfect hint of romance woven together with all the mystery, tension and excitement a girl could want! Ignited was an unexpected delight! Initially I only began reading this book because I was caught out and about without my normal read. So….I decided to read a few [...]

But that doesn't mean I absolutely hated it because it had quite a few interesting aspects and I did enjoy reading this book.Kris was living a pretty normal life until one day she was suddenly attacked and then she had to flee w [...]

**You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs**Ignited is the first book in the young adult fantasy and mythology series of the same name by Desni Dantone. This book was written in 2013 and there are 4 books out in the series so far. Actually, the fourth book comes out next month (March 2016) so now is the perfect time to read the first three and get ready. I don't often get a chance to go back and start a series this late in the game, unless it is one that has been on my ra [...]
I loved this book! There was drama, love, hate and two handsome guys, one evil and one good, but I swear, considering their personalities, they were both on the wrong side!I liked Alec to begin with, and still did all the way through the book and I hope that Nathan can find a way to help him as he tries to help Kris in the Epilogue. I Highly Recommend this book to all adventure seeking teens!
You ever pick up (or in this day in age, come across a book on , lol) that you just know is going to be good? You don't even finish reading the summary because something tells you that you're going to love it and you don't want the summary to give anything away. This was one of those books for me and it did not disappoint.It was such a breath of fresh air and the exact change I needed!! I love a great romance novel, but they can get stale and repetitive and honestly, it's nice to read a book whe [...]
17 year old Kris lost her family in a devastating murder when she was younger and now must endure the hardships of losing her best friends in a horrible car accident in which she survived. However her survival isn’t based on luck, but rather the rescue from a mystery man whom throughout her years has always showed up in the face of danger. When Kris meets with a charming yet seemingly dangerous boy, she is thrown into a world of gods and demigods and a century old battle between good and evil. [...]
This review was originally posted on Bookish Things & More Quickie Review This will be a quickie. I really enjoyed this book. It was definitely different, and I love how mythology is woven into the story.Kris takes everything in with ease, even though I’d be completely freaking out. She is thrown into this new world without really knowing what is gong on. She doesn’t know who she’s supposed to trust. I love that she never gives up, and always fights her way through something if s [...]
Review:A. Pros:1) The Concept of the book is my favorite! This book is about Demigods fighting each other for the greater good (Hello!?)! Just Awesome! Kris might come across as quiet and shy when we first meet her. Her character developed through the entire book. She becomes stronger, out-going, and sarcastic.The most enjoyable thing is the dialogue between Kris and Nathan. Those two crack me up with laughter.2) The characters begins to grow as you read the novel and the begins to get better as [...]
Hmm I'm not really sure what amount of starts to give this book, it was good and different, being that the love interest for our female protagonist has been saving her life since she was around 3years old. What I didn't enjoy was that while she was on the run, in danger, with her whole life thrown up in the air, was her constant swooning over a guy. Perhaps the reason he isn't into you is that you're acting like a love sick puppy with no regard for your well being. But it has demi gods in it, an [...]
What can i say, this could have been just condensed down to a few chapters and been the beginning of a story but obviously the writer wants to do a series so has filled it with not one love interest but two and has not pulled it off. Apart from the dreadful love story the thing i hated the most was the constant refusal to give the full in formation to Kris it drove me nuts just tell the girl the full story and get it over with. Also show me a 3 year old who knows and understand what a guardian a [...]
