4.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Romance novel with a Twist of Suspense., August 31, 2011
This review is from: Altered: Setenid Blight Book One (Paperback)
I am very impressed by Kimberly Montague's first book in the Setenid Blight series, Altered. The plot of the book is a very fun read full of Romance, suspense, and difficult choices. A classic love story with a twist. Altered starts out with the reader's learning about a few of the main characters, Evie, her brother Harm and Evie's boyfriend of seven years, Jay. Evie and her brother Harm recently lost there Mother and Father and are dealing with being alone and having to take care of each other. When Harm decides he wants to join the special forces, he leaves Evie in Jay hands where they end up going back to a town they once lived in before. Evie is to live with her boyfriend's family for the time being and start school once she is settled in. On the first day back to school with Jay by her side she ends up meeting a guy that she feels a intensely electric connection with, Delvin. He is handsome, popular and Evie feels drawn to Devlin even before she meets him. With more and more encounters with Devlin, Evie is starting to fall in love with him even know she knows in her heart she is with Jay... Evie finds herself falling more and more for Devlin and less attracted to Jay. When her decisions lead to more that what she bargained for, Evie and Devlin now have there love put to the test. Something weird is going around and people including Jay are not acting like themselves, but rather something very evil. Evie and Devlin along with there friends now will fight there way to find safety and stay together in a town that has gone mad, but why?

I loved the style of writing that Kimberly Montague uses. It was a beautifully written book with wonderful descriptions of the people and events that take place during the book. I really enjoyed the heartfelt romance in Altered. A True love story with a twist in the end. I kept wanting for everything to be okay in the end but was left with a cliff hanger. Altered will never leave the reader disappointed It is fast and fun read with plenty of mystery and romance. The only reason I ended up giving it 3.5 stars and not more is because I felt during the middle of the book was all about the romance between Evie and Devlin and I wanted more of the mystery of what was going on in the town. In the beginning of Alter you learn about these weird things happening but the book does not go into it until much later. Other than this I really enjoyed reading Altered and would recommend the book to anyone over the age of 15.

I am like 3/4 of the way through this book when Jay shows up and acts all physcho-ish. The whole sci-fi aspect I honestly didn't really enjoy. I wanted something new besides my fantasy/paranormal romance genre but this book had too much suspense it made me sick. When I found out in the other helpful reviews that it was a cliff hanger I was devasted.
The romance for me was too complicated (between Jay and Devlin) and friendship and it made it too complicated (repetition of the word 'complicated'). I mean its a no brainer. Who treats who Evie the best and doesn't tell everyone (what she had exactly said to him) that it was long over? I firstly like jay's character but I started to hate it and wishing that he just faded from the story. Overall, 2 stars for me. It hurts to finish the book.

I really hoped that I would have enjoyed this book more.
