I have to say, though, that I kind of struggled through the first chapters. Kestra Pingree's writing style is very detailed - detailed in the things characters do, not in the descriptive way - and it took some time for me to get used to.
Fortunately, that little annoyance disappeared the more I lost myself in the story. And what a story it is! This book fluently flows from one event to the next. I didn't find any part of it boring whatsoever and wanted to read more, find out what was going to happen in the end. Isn't that exactly what a book is supposed to do? Yes, it is!
It was especially fun that the story switches point of views between Tasia, Rynne and Arsen. This makes everything that more interesting since you, as a reader, know more than the characters.
Even though I absolutely love the story, the events and the overall world Kestra Pingree has created, I did have some minor problems with the characters.
The blurb said Tasia is in love with her best friend, Rynne, yet... They don't act like best friends at all. Like, not at all? I was confused at first and thought I'd misread the blurb but nope, it's there. I really thought it was a pity that their friendship wasn't expressed more clearly.
As for Rynne himself, he just seemed detached sometimes... Like he's just a character following the motions he's supposed to follow without any substance. I don't know, it just felt... empty when I read some chapters in his POV.
Even though there were some things that I would've liked different, I still loved the story itself. And, honestly, I hope I find the time soon to read the sequel!
I cannot wait to find out what's going to happen next. Especially because... Go Arsen!
I was doubting between a 3 or 3,5 for Hearts Lie but it really made me curious to the sequel so I'm going with a 3,5 / 5!
I received this copy through a giveaway on LibraryThing. I am not being compensated for my review in any way. All opinions are entirely my own.
This is the first book of the Undying Series. According to the end of this book there's at least six books in the series. The story ends to a certain point, but the last few pages are a setup for the next book The Pull of Destiny.
I really enjoyed the book, it held my interest throughout. The story is well written with a lot of description given throughout a story that flowed nicely. Each chapter is from the point of view of a different character. Tasia is very shy, but her character grows throughout the book, and she breaks out of the personality of the beginning where I wanted to give her a good shake. She goes through a lot, and there's some tear jerk moments in the book.
This is a story you can't put much information out there for fear of giving out spoilers. It's about good and bad, but is bad, totally bad is what I got out of the story. Took me a while to get the title, because it didn't seem like anyone's heart was really lying to them, but it works itself out eventually. It's going to be interesting to see how things come together between Tasia, Rynne and Arsen (and at times I felt bad for Yuki).
It's a PG book, with some smooching as far as things go.
When I received this book I thought, "This is going to be a typical paranormal teen romance."
Well I was right and wrong, the predictable teen romance is there (but adorable and I loved it), but the same story line I have come to read in this genre, was lost. It was refreshing to be able to read something that seems familiar but then throws you for a loop. I felt as if this had many similarities to some of my favorite books from this genre with just enough new material tied in.
The author did a great job developing these characters as well.
All the characters have more of a realistic vibe to them. Their reactions are more relatable and unexpected than your typical heroin or villain.
I also love the love/hate relationship I have for the villain of the book, Arsen. When an author can make me feel what I normally don't feel for a character role, I am impressed.
Overall, it is a quick read simply because you want to know the great mystery behind the main character and the villain of the book. I will definitely purchase the rest of the series.
This story follows Tasia Wren a normal sixteen year old girl who happens to be able to see and communicate with ghosts, her crush Rynne an angel sent to protect her, and Arsen a demon that killed Tasia's parents but he is as drawn to her as she is to him. This book alternates between Tasia's, Rynne's, and Arsen's perspectives. I had a hard time getting into this book initially because it was slow to be because it was setting up this world. However after the first third I found myself sucked in and I did not want it to end. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
I would suggest this book for anymore who likes young adult books, the supernatural, and PG romance.
I received an ARC copy for this story.
