The black and white cover didn't excite me -- I'm a magpie, attracted to bright and sparkly things -- but I was intrigued by the single white feather, as well as the title and decided to check it out. Big mistake.
I'm working on an impossible deadline, but once I started reading "Inescapable" by Amy A. Bartol, the revisions on my own novel came to a grinding halt. Shhh... don't tell my editor.
I could NOT put this book down. Here's a few reasons why...
1. The paranormal element of the story is slowly revealed, ratcheting the tension ever higher, while the plot barrels forward at a thrilling pace.
2. The college campus setting is rich with sensory details without bogging the story down with unnecessary literary description.
3. The main characters are multi-faceted with complex needs and desires that create internal as well as external conflict.
4. The female protagonist, Evie is athletic and strong-willed, but still vulnerable. (I love the fact that she plays field hockey!)
5. The male love interests: Russell and Reed. 'Nuff said. I'm still torn between which of these fascinating men I want Evie to choose. It's too bad she can't have them both! (It's not that kind of book ;-)
6. The sexual tension sizzles, but is not the least bit graphic or gratuitous.
7. The shocking twist near the end that changes everything! I can't wait for the sequel to find out what happens next.
The only thing that bothered me at all, was Russell's accent.Read more ›
Let me say that I am BLOWN AWAY by this book. The editing alone in this is magnificent! I looked at it from a reader's view as well as an author's view, and I just cannot believe the amount of work that went into this. I can almost feel the pain of the editing that went into this. The way that Amy has written her book, it honestly flows and flows very well. I was very impressed with her style. Amy takes you by the hand and eases you along with the story, allowing things to develop and for ideas to flourish.
When I first started reading the story, without giving anything away, I thought "oh God...another vampire story," but let me tell you, that isn't the attitude I kept when I read further into the book. I'm not going to tell you what it is about, I will not crush your anthill. This book is going to shock and awe you. There were times when I was overwhelmed with excitement and wanted to blow up her twitter account saying "OMG, this part hits home, and this part, and this part!" But I didn't! And I'm sure she was probably glad for that!
This book is a rather long book, at least compared to the lengths I'll read, but this book has just been constructed and written so well that it almost makes me feel like I should have paid for it twice. The length and overall quality of the book for $2.99--astonishing. There are some parts in the book that I personally felt like "okay...Read more ›
The dialogue in the book is simple, and seems geared toward a young reader. The slang used was outdated and corny... things like "dis" or "he did me a solid." Then the slang is translated for the reader after it is used - which drove me crazy. ex) Freddie said this, and what he meant by that was this.
The football-playing character, Russell, spoke like he was from the South... in 1930!
Another thing that I did not like, is how the book lingers on details about Evie moving into her dorm room for pages and pages, then jumps right into Russell and Evie practically dating after one small walk together, right after meeting for the first time. Then suddenly Reed is playing a major role in Evie's life, out of nowhere. I would have liked to see those relationships develop a bit more naturally, so I could actually get into the story.
It's not the worst storyline ever, but certainly not the best either (by far). The main drawback is the way it was written and the character dialogue... and lack of character development.
But why are we missing some stars? Well, the writing leaves a lot to be desired. Russell is a southern boy with the most annoying speech. I don't know about you, but when I know a person has an accent, I tend to read their lines with an accent in my head. But that's just me. Too many "ya" and such made it hard to read his lines and get what he's saying.
Another reason? I get that someone is absolutely beautiful and perfect, but the description of Reed being beautiful and perfect every time? Maybe because Reed is beautiful and perfect. You know, since he is beautiful and perfect. See how annoying that can get?
Also, I think the description was too much of a filler. I love a good visual and some authors really need to learn how to do so. But this book had way too much of it. It made the book longer than it could have been, which annoys me.
Last but not least, I don't like weak female characters. Evie tries to be strong, but gets picked up and carried to safety way too many times. Things like that annoy me.
For $2.99, it's not a bad buy. It's really not a bad read, but beware what everyone is complaining about because it will annoy you.
