Fear Me Not follow Victoria [Vic] and her experiences at the first boarding school that will educate both human teens and Gutter [Alien] teens. The Gutters have been living on earth for eleven years now and have a very particular diet- human emotions. In order to feed off their emotions, select human volunteers have an organ implanted in them that will convert their emotions into something tangible that the Gutters can eat. All the humans at this boarding school are EVEs [the volunteers with the special organ] including Vic.
As you can imagine, not everyone is happy about mixing Gutters and humans together and people are even less happy when relationships [be it friendship or romantic] begin to form between the two groups.
Vic is an EVE to earn money so that her sister can be treated for her really bad asthma. Her driving force for staying at the school is that they're giving her 100,000 dollars for being an EVE and she can't afford to turn that down when it could save her sister. So she sucks it up… even if she hates the aliens.
Thing is… it's not long before she finds out that the Gutters aren't all that different from her, actually some of them are really cool.
Raine is Vic's roommate. She's a gutter and a model and she'e essentially Gutter royalty. It takes a while for Vic to warm up to her roommate but she soon finds that there's more to Raine than what appears on the outside to be a shallow, fashion obsessed girl. I really liked Raine, but I wish- and this is something I feel about every character that isn't Vic- I wish we got to know her better.
While the author dove into Victoria's past and allowed up to know her very well, we only got small clues about the rest of the characters. While Vic was building relationships with Taj and Raine and Shadus she seemed to be getting closer to them and more emotionally involved, but we, as readers didn't get to experience that as much as I would have liked.
Yes, Shadus introduces Vic to the Alien culture and parts that should be kept a secret, but I wish we had seen even more of the little things. I also wish we got to know him on a deeper level than we did.
My only other complaint is that there was one seemingly random POV change toward the end. This was totally fine and it actually was nice the only thing I didn't like was that Sara Wolf didn't let us know about the change and so suddenly we're in a different POV and I spent half the chapter confused.
Though I could have used a little more secondary character development Sara Wolf does a great job of telling an intriguing story that leaves you wanting more and more. Her writing style is easy and fun to read and she is wonderful with dialogue. I can't wait to read the next in the series and dive deeper into this world.
If you haven't checked it out yet, this is definitely worth a read. :]
“Fear Me Not” takes standard elements from a variety of different genres and mixes them up in a new and enjoyable way. Light/quick read for adults. WARNING: Cliffhanger ending
Fantasy World - 3 stars
Aliens made themselves human on the outside while their ship was getting ready to crash. Multitasking wow! Details of their bodies and genetic engineering capabilities are hard to understand. World feels not quite complete although revelations in later books may resolve questions.
Tingle - 1 star
Young adult book where a kiss is a big deal. Very tame except for mention of off page alien sexual maturity ritual.
Characters - 4 stars
Awkward girl from poor family, brooding prince, popular girl with secret pain, hall monitor on steroids, random misfits all make an appearance. Stereotypes we enjoy revisiting in all their messed up glory.
Story - 3 stars
No new elements, but you never know what the author is going to throw into the recipe next. It's well put together and feels like a complete story although obviously this is only the first book in a series.
The aliens from “V” got stranded like the aliens from “District 8” then put on a reservation in Colorado by the government, American Indian style. They were forced to send their kids to a hybrid high school in the name of good publicity and race relations where the teenagers did what teenagers always do. They formed cliques, developed crushes, and learned how to dance. In between fights, classes, and protests at the gates, a young girl finds herself in the middle of multiple alien/human conspiracies which make her original, simple goals seem unreachable.
Recommended for fans of sci fi and young adult novels. Good pick for anyone who enjoyed “Harry Potter” or “The Host” too.
I look forward to seeing where this all goes with our heroine and her growing powers, and is love possible even in these circumstances? Stay tuned as I am sure the author may surprise us.
