The reason I didn't rate this story higher is there was too much description for me. There were pages and pages of her thinking in her head, or going over the same thing. I read another review saying they didn't like the thing with her boyfriend, but I liked that. I understand being with someone, and then just falling out of love. It's heartbreaking because you can think one moment you'll be together forever and then the next you let go of that dream. I liked how she didn't immediately jump in with Blake, but that things progressed more slowly and cautiously. I can't stand people falling in love in 2 days. The story itself, though, got boring for me. They walked and talked a bit, but there just wasn't enough adventure to keep me entertained. I think this is worth a download, and I think a lot of people will enjoy it, especially younger teenagers.
Mina is average girl with good boyfriend and a plan. Destiny doesn't care for Mina's plan and turns everything upside down.
Is Blake just her temptation or her destiny? Will she leave Sam for man who just walked in her life?
Take a walk through The realm between magic, myths, love, prophecies, duels...
This is first book by Katie M. John i have read and i will read more.
I loved Mina's journey and her inner fights.
Loved how Blake was respectful towards the fact Mina is in relationship.
Only thing i did not like was Blake's reaction after fight/duel - it was too mild.
I would recommend this story to YA fantasy lovers.
I was instantly ensnared by the first two sentences. "Sleep is for the innocent. For the guilty, the night is a time when we are fearful prisoners locked tightly behind heavy eyelids." The book is filled with other sentences that carry a beauty beyond the realm of mere words. John uses fantastic metaphors throughout her story, some of which were beyond exquisiteness, such as "I felt like a doll, beautiful, but hollow." The writing style is also poetic, and does a nice job of painting the story.
Obviously, everyone will love Blake, of course. He was made to be loved. I mean, seriously, he is a knight in shining armor, with all the virtues you would expect from one. What isn't so obvious is every character is loveable, in some way, right down to the evil and conniving Morgan Le Fay. There were real moments where I felt strong connections to the characters.
At first, I hated Mina. I felt like she was selfish for even thinking of leaving the boy she loved for two years for this instant hot flare she felt just because Blake entered her life. However, I grew to love her just as much as the other characters because I realized that by making Mina a bit fickle, John actually made her perfectly human. I understand now why Mina had to start in the relationship she did. It was imperative to draw the lines between love in the real world, and love in the realm. Love can mean everything in any number of ways, and John illustrates it with ease.
I often felt like I wanted more in this story, I wanted more on the characters, the realm, the love story, the friendships, the fights, the magic. Wanting more in this case is a good thing though, because I know there are two more books that will form together to complete this beautifully tragic fairytale, and I know I will be waiting to devour them both.
