The Healer was quite an interesting read. Its about a girl named Hope who has the ability to heal people by telling people's life force how to heal itself. I know, sounds complicated. But I thought it was really well thought out and I found to be very interesting in the story. CJ did a great job making this visual to the reader. Hope also has a best friend with some weird niches of her own(one that I found to be obvious from the beginning). Hopes life gets turned upside-down with the entrance of two new boys Victor and Tie who seem to know a lot about her and seems to have a weird connection.
This book was filled with some great action. Not gonna spill it all but there are swords involved. Hellz yea. There is a complicated romance brewing between Hope, Victor, and Tie but I really enjoyed it. Ok I really love Tie, I'm totally on his team.
Overall I thought the story was ok. It kept me reading, but not dying to know what would happen next. I do think this book has some great things going for it and I do want to read the next book. There is a secret twist to the story that I loved. The romance is just right and not overbearing, the relationship between Hope and her best friend was funny and sweet, Hope's dad is a refreshing sight in a YA novel, and some great action to boot.
If you like A Mortal Song by Megan Crewe and Connected by Kat Stiles then I definitely recommend this book.
I'm madly in love Tie, just an FYI. This story and these characters are perfect. I want Ang to be my best friend, I want Hope's dad to be my dad, and I want Hope to be my much younger sister, since I'm an old fart. I also want gorgeous Japanese gods to swoon and fight over me. Sigh.
Everything just came together so well, I was completely enraptured! I sobbed when a certain background character had a certain thing happen, which surprised me. This person wasn't a main focus or anything, and yet s/he was so well written that it broke my heart. Shortly after that happened, something else happened that caused me to cry so incredibly hard that I could no longer see my kindle screen, and had to turn on the read to me feature to continue. Because I was NOT willing to stay away from the book at that point. And oh, you sneaky, sneaky, EVIL author! I love you now. And I will be buying book 2 tomorrow, aka payday lol.
In case this incredible author is one who likes to read her reviews: Hi there! I’m Bob, from Platypire Reviews. You may be my current favorite, THANK YOU.
ALSO! Bonus points for Diversity, y’all!
Bob says: 5 big huge giant Platypires, and DEFINITELY on my favorites list for this year!
This sounds sort of "ho-hum", but the author, C. J. Anaya, gives the story excitement and introduces us to Japanese God's and evil spirits. This is just the kind of story you would want to read on a boring, rainy afternoon to give life some excitement. Enjoy.
In which I loved because it was so unpredictable! To beautiful Immortals, but in love with them mortal girl? Hum ...one with the power to heal also.. which way will she choice? Follow he destiny, and save many life's from pure evil. Or follow her heart, and find another way to protect their innocents..
I love this series. I love this author. If you haven't read her work yet, you should. She's fantastic at story telling! I love this book and everything else she's written!
CJ Anaya is able to give an almost tired genre a completely new spin. So you've read a book dealing with mythological gods messing with mortals, but you haven't read one about Japanese gods! Realistic characters, gripping storyline, and fantasy! Great start to a wonderful series! Five stars!
