You need to grab your seat belt and buckle up because from the first page, the action starts and NEVER LETS UP! You are in a speeding car, so to speak, going from adventure to adventure in an entire new world created by the author, Holly Martin. Ms. Martin's mind must be an amazing place to be--for she created this whole fantasy world rich with layers, action, and intrigue. It's a book that is hard to put down, and you are left wanting more at the end.
What is this fast paced YA story? The Sentinel is the story of Eve, who is involved in a terrifying bus crash in the first page of the book. When Eve is rescued, her world is upended with the revelation that nothing in her life is as it seems. She is, in fact, The Sentinel--the girl who has been created to save the world, and everyone around her--family, friends, teachers--is actually her Guardians who are designed to protect her, including her best friend, Seth.
With this revelation, Eve's entire reality has changed. But there is no time to process it, as her life is threatened by those who want to kill her, those who do not share the beliefs of the Guardians. Now that the secret is out, Eve begins to learn to use her powers and learn her destiny...as well as the price that is to be paid by being The Sentinel...
I absolutely LOVED this book. Ms. Martin did a wonderful job of creating this world, and explaining to the reader the different groups and their powers and beliefs. The action sequences were brilliantly written, and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to read them. There are lots of characters in this book, all drawn vividly and uniquely.
And I cannot wait for the second book in the series to be released. Brilliant storytelling, fantastic heroine, and breathless action. Wonderfully done, Ms. Martin.
This is a romance book disguised as an adventure/psi-fi novel . I love romance, I love a little bit of it in every genre. When everyone in this book started hooking up more or less though, it started feeling like a weird sorority drama, and not the suspense filled adventure book it was. I swear the heroine was shooting high school level hormones at everyone around her (which funny enough was more or less the explanation the book gave) For me this took away from the book, it felt like I got tricked into reading a genre I didn't want.
They introduce minor characters, tell us a bunch about them in two pages and then either forgets about them or forgets about them and then kills them off. We didn't meet her doctor and nurses for instance, I could of lived without so much on her teachers. I guess the author was either making her world more complex or setting us up for the sequel, but it was mostly annoying.
I didn't like the heroine as much as other people. She really annoyed me, (although she was more tolerable than a lot of recent YA heroines/heros to be fair). I'm seriously waiting to see whose going to have to needlessly die before she stops acting so reckless. And the way she treated/treats her best friend Seth really bothered me, and it kind of lowered my opinion of her. She actually tried to "force" him to forgive her. She definitely became more egotistical as the book progressed (though it's not all her fault) but as I'm all over egos, arrogance, and that ridiculously popular alpha personality, it's something I can't deal well with anymore, even in a girl, even if she feels guilty about it later. It's also the main thing that might keep me from buying the sequel, as I fear she can only get worse.
Most people seemed to enjoy this book way more than me, and even I with all my dislikes gave it 4 stars. It's definitely worth a read. If you dislike the things I dislike however, I wouldn't buy it unless it's on the cheap side (I got it for free and while I don't regret reading it, I definitely would have if I paid more than 4 dollars on it - my personal ok kindle books limit)
Definitely something I'd suggest to fans of paranormal.
In many ways the story line is fresh and keeps you guessing.
I believe this is Holly Martin's first book of "The Sentinel Series".....
Holly you have me hooked and am waiting to buy your next book in this series. Please keep writing!!!
