Definite must read, and another new series I cant wait to read more of.
– YA lit lovers

Ethereal is a very well written story that captured our attention very early on and kept us quickly thumbing through the pages up until the very end. Addison Moore has the ability to create this complex, amazing backdrop in her stories that deposits a reader right into her fantasy world using just minimal, yet extremely descriptive words. – The Book Hookup

Solid Success for Ethereal – Kids Ebook Bestsellers

Sixteen year-old, Skyla Messenger is a dead girl walking.

When her newly remarried mother moves the family to Paragon Island, to a house that is rumored to be haunted, Skyla finds refuge in Logan Oliver, a boy who shares her unique ability to read minds.

Skyla discovers Logan holds the answers to the questions she’s been looking for, but Logan’s reluctance to give her the knowledge she desires leaves her believing Logan has a few secrets of his own.

Skyla’s bloodlines may just be connected to the most powerful angelic beings that roam the earth, and the more she knows, the more danger she seems to be in.

Suddenly an entire faction of earthbound angels wants her dead, at least she still has Logan, or does she?

2.0 out of 5 stars Seriously? July 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book based on the slew of 5 star reviews left for it. After reading the Etheral, I'm left wondering how that's possible (though I have a theory.)

One review said the book read like fanfiction and, having written and edited in that world for ten years, I'd like to qualify it with "it reads like *bad* fanfiction." I've read some incredible fanworks over the years and this doesn't come close to that level of quality.

There's no cohesion in the plot, no follow through on plot devices use (Skyla finds out her mother's an angel, yet there's no confrontation?), other story elements are so contrived as to be almost comical - insta-lust to Logan, falling literally into Chloe's life - her room, her boyfriend, her cheerleading squad - and no one finds this strange. Skyla routinely "forgets" that Logan can read her thoughts? Doubtful, since she's had that ability her whole life.

The names. Skyla. Darla.

The story jumps around, the pacing is shoddy and there's no real sense of beginning, middle, and end.

Skyla herself is vapid and shallow, almost totally unlikeable. Logan is a complete dog - making out in front of Skyla to "get Chloe's diary" when, I'm assuming, Gage could teleport into Michelle's room if he wanted to and get it for Logan?

To this point, Gage is the only redeeming character and probably the only reason I've given the book 2 stars and not one.

We won't even get into the spelling and grammar errors throughout. That would take several more pages.

I'm intrigued enough to see if she grows as an author through the next books (at .$99 I'll take the risk.)

1.0 out of 5 stars Reads like bad fanfiction... September 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am glad I only paid 99 cents for this book because it's barely worth that. I'm the type of person to dig into a book and no stop reading until it's done. I read 400 page books in a matter of hours, but this book took me four days to get through. The characters are really 2-dimensional and undeveloped. The main character is unlikeable and boring. The book has extremely short, choppy chapters which remind me of really bad fanfiction. The plot jumps around so quickly I often lost focus and had to backtrack and figure out what was going on.

*** spoilers below ***

The book starts off with the main character, Skyla, moving to Paragon Island. Skyla describes herself as perfect with wavy blonde (NEVER FRIZZY!!) hair and perfect crystal blue eyes. She moves into a house where a girl who was murdered lived. The dead girl's best friend immediately runs over and becomes best friends with Skyla for some unknown reason. She also gets Skyla an instant spot on the cheerleading squad and instant invites to all parties (and there are a lot.. this girl parties like a college kid). The new best friend also immediately starts dating Skyla's nose-picking, flatulent, disgusting brother as well. Right away, Skyla meets the dead girl's boyfriend, Logan, and his cousin Gage. The two boys are described as the most perfect good looking boys in the world and both immediately fall in love with her and start fighting over her. There is absolutely no development of a relationship, Skyla and Logan just immediately are in love and start making out all the time. This author definitely wastes no time on buildup for that first kiss, they're making out on a pool table within pages of meeting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really, Really, Awful January 3, 2012
By M
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I cannot put into words how ridiculously awful this book is. I really, really wanted to like this series, and I tried to, but getting through Ethereal was exceedingly difficult.
Let me say though, that generally I have high standards for books. I'm a teenager, but I don't frequent the YA section of the library to often anymore. I adore the classics and will read anything that's gotten some kind of prestigious award, because they're solid indicators of good literature. I do read YA, though. I read and reread and loved the Hunger Games, and I read the Mortal Instruments and their companion series and enjoyed them both. I read Hush, Hush and liked it. And around this time last year, I decided to try Amanda Hocking, because 'My Blood Approves' was only a dollar and was pleasantly surprised. I loved her characters, I loved the plots, and when Ethereal showed up in my recommended books, (which was a surprise in itself, but I assume this is because of all the Amanda Hocking I bought) I tried a sample.
It was awful. The first three sentences were promising, maybe, the first chapter was okay, but it just went downhill after that. So I decided not to bother. But yesterday I found myself in need of a quick, cheap read, and decided to give Ethereal another try, it couldn't hurt. It looked like the reviews were mostly positive, so I bought it. About 50 pages into the book I went back to check the reviews, because I just couldn't imagine how anyone could praise such an awful example of literature. I assume, like some other reviewer, that these were maybe written by Addison Moore and her family, because in general they're pretty short, and full of things like 'Skyla is such a witty, clever heroin'. I laughed when I read that.

Logan or Gage?
J, I agree with the setup of the love triangle. I found it believable that Logan would want to protect her and have Gage play the part of BF so she won't get hurt. I find myself leaning towards Gage. I'm not sure I would call him an underdog. Skyla has to be blind not to see him for who he is.... Read more
