So on a whim, looking for a cheap read, I picked up this first title. I have never read anything by this author in the past, but the blurb didn't suck and it was cheap. I did not realize until I began it that it was technically a YA novel, which I do not generally enjoy. The writing style and content in YA's is generally not to my liking. I stuck with it though, and am immensely pleased that I did. I ended up purchasing and reading the entire trilogy today, one book after the other.

Cons to this series:
There were some minor editing issues. Missing words here and there, incorrect usage of hear/here, their/there, etc. But not so common that it hindered my understanding of the writing, or so nagging as to pull me off the story line.

This guy is NOT a romance author. If you picked up this book looking for some fantastical love story, this is not it. While the love triangle in the book is impactful, this is not this author's strong suit.

The one re-occurring complaint that I had about this series was this: You have this strong Amazon character, who epitomizes both inner and outer strength. And you make her a blubbering ninny over this guy who repeatedly denounces her in public, while sweet talking her in private, explained away by inner monologues about how she just knows he is telling the truth when he talks to HER, and she just trusts him. Thankfully, the author did NOT focus heavily on the romance factor as the books moved along.

Pros to this series:

There were no vampires, werewolves or faeires. Thanks for that, I'm a bit burned out!

He did a wonderful job of integrating a wild concept into this book. Some may complain that the first book took too long to identify the Amazonian legends that are the basis of this series.

A creative and refreshing take on a classic tale about the fountain of youth. Intertwined are interesting characters from well known history, and a plot that brings the reader into the story. Well written, full of questions and mystery yet leaves the reader satisfied and wanting more. Thumbs up! Can't wait for book two!

This book was recommended to me by a friend who makes me read books that expand my mind from the normal genres that I tend to go to. It was well written and kept reading to see what would happen next. I truly was able to picture what was happening through my own imagination. I can not wait for the writter to come out with the next book so I can go further into this amazing story and see what awaits...
Kudos to the author!

First off I loved the story it is unique and well written. On the other hand I personally felt the story was drug on. I am all for suspense in a story but this book had a bad habit of just about to reveal information then oops something unfortunate happens to keep the information from being revealed and this happened so many times with every bit of info you were waiting for even multiple times for the same piece of info that I was extremely frustrated. The book went from finger nail biting anticipation to yeah yeah someone gets shot by an arrow, I get it. The story was so good I did continue reading until the end, though. My curiosity about what was going to happen to win over. I probably won't read the second however only because I can't really enjoy my reading if I'm angry at my kindle deciding whether or not picking it back up is even worth it. I do also suggest the author to make the obvious facts to the reader obvious to the main character, like the fact Cassie re-created the rock formation, that should be obvious to Nia that Cassie is remembering something at least subconciously. Oh and I'm pretty sure I know who Nia really is which will be my reason behind reading the second just to confirm my suspicions, if I am correct Nia's true identity is mentioned earlier on in the book when she corrects her history teacher....

Such a pleasant surprise! This was a very fun story with a strong female lead and plenty of characters you enjoy one second and hate the next. It is filled with historical characters and anecdotes all warped into the fiction so they blend seamlessly with the tale.

I loved how the 'myth' included in this story isn't one found all that frequently in the YA genre. Yes it is found in some YA fiction, but it really isn't as common as many others (I can think of one 'everlasting' example immediately but that is a very different kind of story).

The story is told in first person by Nia, a very athletic, take no prisoners kind of girl. When she is forced to fend off armored soldiers in the middle of a high school field hockey game, she begins to suspect that she might not be all that average after all. The soldiers were clearly from another time and their attack did seem directed at her. When strange dreams and broken memories begin to tell Nia she really is something other than an average teenager - the reader gets caught up in an action filled adventure full of mysteries and unexpected discoveries.

The writing is smooth, easy to read and has a good amount of humour. All in all, I found it very enjoyable read. I think it would appeal to YA readers who simply like a good adventure.
