Emerson Hope Baxter: Emmy is a girl who thinks that she doesn't deserve to have chosen things because her Mom was raped and that's how she came into the world. She's quite and has no friends except for one and she goes and dies. And the whole "I am in love with Marcus even though he is with Ameana and can't be with me and I barely know him" is kinda pathetic. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a good book but StVil can work on some things. Like relationships. And her spelling. I'm not the kind of person who really notices spelling errors, considering I make them myself. But I noticed quite a few so readers be warned.
My main problem with the book is the relationships and character development.
Emmy and Marcus?? Really?? I don't get why they attempt to be together at all. He told her he was in love with Ameana, why dies Emmy keep torturing herself? Why, why why????? And then he whole relationship with Resse was just weird. Like she thinks she "loves" Marcus but as soon as Resse declares that he likes Emmy she dropped the whole thing with Marcus and wants Resse? I'm sorry by that was so stupid to me. To me it just seemed that Emmy as acting desperate. An the fact that Marcus flipped out about the kiss? He had no reason to. Th main thing is, Emmy came across at first as a boring girl with no life beside th one friend she barley hung out with, her mom, and her cat. And now since the Angels came an suddenly is close with all of them( except for Ameana, because really who could blame her). I think Emmy was an okay character if that. She as way to impulsive, only cared about herself, was in a denial about Marcus, an when someone I REALLY LOVED and important died, she got over it pretty fast. Not to mention the fact Thatcher was friends with her mom, yet she as hardly in the book or even mentioned.
I am just saying that through all of this Ameana was justified and even warranted for her behavior. If a girl claimed she was in love with my boyfriend an keep making a move even after the Sag warned Emmy that she would be Marcus's undoing I would be posses too. An throughout her more than into just a wall.
The twins are good characters too. Rio obviously has love for his twin Miku, since he attempted to save her before they died. I like how in this book their Core remains a secret. Rio obviously ha a crush on A mean though and I think that they should end up together but reading the second book I did change my mind. Ripeness always trying to save everyone because of his power and I thought that was sweet. An stupid how he left. I mean are you tryin to get rid of everyone Lola??? Miku was a different story all together though. I found her creepy but a good charter who knew herself. Though she I kinda fast to anger and forgive.
All in all this book was good but had some things wring with it. At the end o every book though it left a cliffhanger so it felt more like a bunch of short stories than an actual book(s).
However I could have look past the awful characters if the story flowed better. You start reading Emmy's weepy tale of woe and then a third of the way
through you get put in Marcus's head. Marcus's story begins before Emmy so you have to go back in time. Then reread through the same stuff again. It was awful because it offered nothing new. Except now you know that Marcus is consumed by this" love"too. I use know in the looses of terms bc I was being told everything is not the same as experiencing it. I was told Emmy love Marcos but never felt this. It read like a first draft of a novel. In Short This book sucks!
