I am not a fantasy reader. I don't read Harry Potter or any of the other popular fantasy series, but I will absolutely buy the next book in this series, and the next...however many she writes. I've been called close minded when it comes to book as well as a 'book snob' - I don't venture far from the writers I've been reading for years. I was asked to check out this book and see what I thought. I didn't expect to like.....and I don't really like it...I LOVE it!
While I enjoyed the book (and I would read more from the author), it read like a short story to me. That isn't necessarily a bad thing though. But I would have liked to have had more background on the Watchers. Daniel told us some of it but I felt like there was more to learn.
I would definitely recommend this book for someone who reads fantasy or YA or is just looking for a quick entertaining book without graphic violence or sex. I look forward to reading more of her creations.
I wasn't ready for how fast this book sucked me into it's gravitational pull. From page one I was hooked. The author seamlessly draws you into a world where being a Muse can be dangerous. I really enjoyed the storyline and plot of this novel, it was different than most of the young adult books out there. I've read lots of novels in this genre and this is one of the best I have read in a long time. The characters are well written, the world building is good and the writing flows nicely. Anna and Daniel's relationship isn't based on teenage hormones like so many you read now a days. It was refreshing to read a book in this genre that was actually acceptable for a young adult to read. There was a little bit of something for everyone in this book; Action, humor (I laughed a few times while reading because of the banter), romance and suspense. The ending wasn't an epic cliffhanger but definitely left me wanting to read the next book to see what is in store for Anna, Daniel, the other "Talents" and the Guardians. Kudos to Ms. McFadden for writing a YA novel that even a not so "young" adult enjoyed reading.

I received this book from the author because she is super nice. I would categorize this as a YA paranormal romance. It was a great, cute story. I felt that the romance might have been rushed a little bit for the story within the time frame; but with extreme circumstances come extreme emotions so with that the book was consistent.
Totally appropriate for ages 14 and up I feel. The book had a very easy going flow as I read it and I really like Daniel. He had this conflict within him where he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps but at the same time he didn’t want to become like his father and he struggled back and forth with that. I liked how she wrote the brotherhood as a bit archaic and old fashioned in that you were grandfathered in and only males were allowed to be guardians. The reason I like that is because it opens the story up for more changes and development in the future.
Anna was a sweet girl; she didn’t have a mean bone in her body. She was very helpful to others, had great support from her friends and a loving family. The only thing that I found lacking was her self-confidence. But it was endearing, the insecurities that she had. They were normal teenage insecurities that we all have had growing up. Plus, she wasn’t too perfect because of them.
The story was pretty quick; I read it in a day. A lot of things happened quickly, and there was a lot of violence near the end. The story took a pretty big turn about 2/3 through so that was cool that I wasn’t able to predict it. I would totally recommend it; I’m probably going to read the next book because I want to know what happens.
