I love the world of the Kaveesh that Tyffani Clark Kemp has created too. It's imaginative, but meshes with our world in a way that makes the strange feel believable. The twists and turns are exciting and keep the pages turning, and keep you guessing with who is going to do what next - especially Mother Cora! Watch out for that one.
Overall, the relationships between the characters make this book. There's tension, romance, humour, nostalgia, horror - every possible type of person is here, but the book never feels crowded, or like there are too many characters at once. The way the story is constructed, it allows for almost several stories within the book at the same time. The storyline is great, the characters are memorable, and the flow is brilliant. I urge anyone who enjoys sci-fi/dystopian YA to pick this up now, because you won't be able to put it down once you start reading! I couldn't give this less than five stars.
While reading, I forgot that this is all fiction, as you fall in love with the characters and come to believe that this is completely possible.
The characters pull you in and as you read you feel as if you are there with them, as a friend. There are moments where I was laughing, crying, mad as a wet hornet, and sitting on the edge of my seat. I highly recommend this to everyone.
Lirabel is a half-breed Kaveesh. She's seems to be a joyous girl and one of a kind. She is different from the others in that she has red eyes and her powers are continuously growing and overwhelming others. I enjoyed her, she was sassy, fun, sweet and had a huge heart. I loved seeing her battle with her feelings for Jonas. It was absolutely cute.
Jonas is a half-breed Kaveesh that broke Lirabel's heart five years ago, but has returned. I absolutely LOVE him. Finding out the backstory between him and Lira and why he left was amazing. He just is the perfect friend and guy to fall in love with. I loved how he tried to get things back to normal while understanding his feelings for Lira. I thought he was such a gentleman when he tried to get Sol and Lira together. Jonas is simply amazing.
The romance was annoying and funny at the same time. I hated the whole Lira and Sol thing. I mean Lira clearly cared nothing for Sol, but he didn't seem to care which made him an idiot. I was pissed with Lira because she went out with him for the sake of pleasing Mother Cora and to "save her kind" which was straight bull to me. I hated how Lira and Jonas tried to ignore their feelings for one another. It was undeniable the love they had and how the sparks flew between them. I was hoping for such a happy ending for Lira and Jonas, but that ending just about killed me.
I enjoyed Mira, Sol, Rowdy, Kim, the twins and Suzanne. They were all key in both Lira's and Jonas' life. They were all so different, but fit one another so well. Mother Cora is an evil witch. I mean seriously, genocide!!!! I can understand wanting to get rid of the humans; it's typical. Why the half-breeds though? These damn pure breeds she's creating look like they will be her downfall. I totally hate and despise her.
That ending tore me to pieces. I can't!! I hope it isn't true. I hope it's just a front and that Lira is safe and sound somewhere healing. I need for Cora to die by Jonas' hand because she has caused him so much heartache. I need the sequel now!!!!
disapoint. It was full of mystery intrique and lots of Romantic
drama. Absolutely loved the alien races. They are so unique and
different from her previous novels.
Lirabel is an amazing character, A half breed so full of
confusion yet certainty in who and what she is and wants to be.
Her pain because of Jonas is just breaks my heart. She tries to
stay strong but with him its not that easy.
I just love the different dynamics this author has playing in
