Living in a world never truly meant for her, Ella Reese has tried her whole life to fit in. She never wanted to stand out in a small town, where gossip runs rapid. Despised for being different… She will be lucky to make it through her senior year without losing herself completely. Thank the goddess for her motley crew of misfits that are there to keep her sane.
Ella suddenly finds herself thrust into a whole new world. One of magic and dangerous desires. Ella discovers that she was meant to be different, she is a powerful True Witch. Ella finds herself slowly falling for her soul mate, the Nordic God lookalike, Jaxx.
Can Ella find comfort in this new life and love she has found before her world is ripped apart?
As she travels the path Fate has set her on…
Chances must be taken.
Decisions must be made.
Death stalks her every step. But she must uncover the secrets that have been hidden from her.
Or die trying.
This one is pretty, pretty similar to The Crush Saga by Chrissy Peebles. It was a totally cliche paranormal fantasy, and, well, that’s not really to my taste.
You see, firstly, Ella and Jaxx (what is with that spelling?) fall in “true love” within a week of barely knowing each other. It’s practically the same song as Fallen by Lauren Kate. Similarly, Sebastian takes one look at Jessa and decides that they are going to be soulmates forever. I find that a bit more than slightly unrealistic. And “twoo wuv”? Sorry guys, but bleaghhh.
The only word I can use to describe the plot is just… meh (yup, I know, I’ve been resorting to sounds instead of words). There wasn’t really any clear cut story line, and random things just kept happening simply for the sake of happening. I felt like I was reading a mash up of Fallen, Crush, and Twilight.
That being said, it was slightly better than Fallen or Twilight, simply because although it was mildly random, there was some progression of events – there was quite a bit of action which was definitely a good thing about the book.
Don’t get me wrong here – this series was not terrible or anything like that, but I may not give it 5 stars either – maybe more around 3/5. It’s a pretty average book that I would recommend only for some light reading.
