1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Terrible August 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of, there were a lot of elements in this story that were simply unnecessary. There were situations that had absolutely NOTHING to do with the storyline.

Secondly, the writing skills were horrifying. As a 16-year-old, if I know that your sentences don't make any sense, then that should let the authors know they are doing something wrong.

Lastly, I felt there was a lack of interest reading this book. If you are writing a book to grasp the attention of a teenage audience, you need to make it ENTERTAINING!!! There were many times I skipped ahead a few pages because they were very tiring to read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Meh May 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot held real promise, but the writing failed to deliver. It was melodramatic, the characters lacked depth or dimension, and the dialogue was stilted and predictable.

Also, as a YA book, I felt like it bordered on inappropriate! Don't get me wrong...I read a lot of YA fiction and I don't take issue with the teenaged "sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll" so to speak, but including a antisocial teen antagonist who is willing to drug, rape, and eventually want/try to kill (or badly maim) the main characters seems over the top. And portraying the "monster" as an adult sociopathic killer who's murderous rages are described like an orgasm scene (repeatedly!!!) was just too much!

The story was great and my KINDLE ended up with finger dents from the suspense. Wow. Now I am on to your next one. BTW, I am 60, It may have been written for the younger ages but I loved it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Drawn out, long read, repetitive August 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Way to much detail and emphasis on people/things that weren't key to the story. I found myself skimming through most of the book. Eugene was not a main character, just a looming threat, but whole chapters were dedicated to him. Good concept but too much unnecessary, drawn out, repetitive info in between.

So much in this book that it really keeps you on your toes wondering what is going to happen next. The evil doctor and what he has created is surprising. Looking forward to seeing what goes down with Gabriel in part 2.

More About the Author

About the Authors

Jennifer and Christopher Martucci hoped that their life plan had changed radically in early 2010. To date, the jury is still out. But late one night, in January of 2010, the stay-at-home mom of three girls under the age of six had just picked up the last doll from the playroom floor and placed it in a bin when her husband startled her by declaring, "We should write a book, together!" Wearied from a day of shuttling the children to and from school, preschool and Daisy Scouts, laundry, cooking and cleaning, Jennifer simply stared blankly at her husband of fifteen years. After all, the idea of writing a book had been an individual dream each of them had possessed for much of their young adult lives. Both had written separately in their teens and early twenties, but without much success. They would write a dozen chapters here and there only to find that either the plot would fall apart, or characters would lose their zest, or the story would just fall flat. Christopher had always preferred penning science-fiction stories filled with monsters and diabolical villains, while Jennifer had favored venting personal experiences or writing about romance. Inevitably though, frustration and day-to-day life had placed writing on the back burner and for several years, each had pursued alternate (paying) careers. But the dream had never died. And Christopher suggested that their dream ought to be removed from the back burner for further examination. When he proposed that they author a book together on that cold January night, Jennifer was hesitant to reject the idea outright. His proposal sparked a discussion, and the discussion lasted deep into the night. By morning, the idea for the Dark Creations series was born.
The Dark Creations series, as well as the Arianna Rose series, are works that were written while Jennifer and Christopher continued about with their daily activities and raised their young children. They changed diapers, potty trained and went to story time at the local library between chapter outlines and served as room parents while fleshing out each section. Life simply continued. And in some ways, their everyday lives were reflected in the characters of each series.
As the story line continues to evolve, so too does the Martucci collaboration. Lunches are still packed, noses are still wiped and time remains a rare and precious commodity in their household, but it is the sound of happy chaos that is the true background music of their writing. They hope that their work, though penned for a young adult audience, will be appreciated by the young of every age, and that all enjoy reading it as much as they enjoyed writing it.
