Book Description


FML is becoming Katia’s motto for senior year.
Things couldn’t get any worse, or so she thought. After another uppity party that ends badly, she finds herself stumbling down the street with a broken heel. So when the guy she’s had a mad crush on since preschool offers Katia a ride, she couldn’t say no. But she should have. Seth Nightingale was trouble.

Seth just made the biggest mistake of his life, and there is no way to fix it. He kissed Katia Montgomery. What hell had he been thinking? The problem is, when Katia is around, his mind turns to mush. Torn between his affection for Katia and his desire to not die, Seth is forced to deal with the very thing he’s been avoiding his entire life.

A dark curse and deep-seated deception leads Katia and Seth closer to their ill-fated destiny. They will have to overcome ancient magick, toe-curling lust, and love if they want to survive.
Genre: Teen Paranormal Romance

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely novel 28 Jun. 2014

Enjoyed this although it's much for teens. Still the story was original and characters were well developed and gave two different viewpoints.

Liked the whole new supernatural creature, didn't get to read much about the magic but did get the whole teenage romance which I loved, at last they get together!!!! Not as great at the Divisa Series of J.L. Weil but good enough ... Glad I read it and hope there are some more books to come :)

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing ending 23 Mar. 2014

The story had a good idea and built well but the ending felt rushed and a bit anticlimactic. Shame as it was enjoyable up to that point.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay-easy to read 28 April 2014
By kat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's a nice book easy to read, just needed a bit more action when fighting the curse and there were times that I thought it was a bit shallow. How can the love of your life be dying (and implying that you'll die afterwards too) and not spending every last second with them? or even close to them?just call to check if she died yet? That stopped me from being excited with the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Starbound 31 Mar. 2014
By katherine - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading all of the reviews for this book, I thought, 'Hey, give it a whirl!'
Eh. It started out pretty decent, and I was pleased that the author managed to write in that POV, and still keep it witty. Sometimes when books are written like that, it sounds like a teenage girl is talking into a recorder and every word is being written down, as it was spoken. Thankfully, this book was not so. As we progressed, however, my opinion on her writing changed. I had to go double check and make sure I wasn't reading the second book in a series. Her former friends? Their powers? The Circle? Where was the backstory? And I'm not even asking for that much, just a little bit! I was confused. All we know is, Katia rose to popularity, leaving her former friends behind. Why does Elena hate her? It was hinted at, but seriously. And the ending! I won't spoil it, but I was disappointed. That whole climax, and a snap of the fingers and the problem disappears. When I got to the end of the book, I couldn't believe it. I thought surely there had to be more to the book than that! It took me a minute to figure out, 'No, that is the ending'.
The romance was cute, intense enough for me to enjoy reading it without thinking they were living off cotton candy and the sky rained flower petals for them. All in all, it was an okay read. I probably won't read it again. If you are looking for a story with a hot guy and a hot girl overcoming anything thrown at them, without a good backstory this is your book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very witty and romantic! 14 Mar. 2014
By Fire Fairy Book-a-holic - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I got a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. And I want to thank her for it because it was a joy to read this book!

The main subject of the story is the supposed imminent death of the heroine - and eventually, the hero - because of a certain curse. Suprisingly, the book kept its tone light and witty.

Let me explain the gist of the story first.
Katia and Seth are destined to be soulmates. In the story, the term used is starbound.

"Being Starbound meant there was one person chosen to be yours by the stars - like a soul mate juiced up on steroids. It infused magick, heart, soul, flesh, and spirit, binding two nixies for all eternity - the five points of a star. Starbound was rare, and if you found yours, you never let go."

Sounds romantic huh? It should have been a happy ever after story right from the start. Unfortunately, some bitter ancestress made a curse that will kill Katia if they complete the starbinding, eventually killing Seth too.

"A starsoul could never live without his or her love. Their hearts - their lives were woven together. If one stopped beating so would the other, and their souls would follow one another into the after life, where they could be together forever. Every nixie knew about starbinding and how exceptional it was."

So how would our young lovers undo a curse as ancient as Greek myth? Well, you have to read the book to find out. *wink*

The story is in the POV of Katia and Seth. I love how the narration keeps switching between them. It definitely kept the story entertaining. And you get to connect with both the main characters and makes understanding them better.

I love Seth. Outside, he's a tough guy. Someone who you don't wanna mess with. Inside he's a nice guy. He deliberately rejects Katia so that she'll hate him, preventing her to fall in love with him, therefore protecting her from the curse.
Katia, on the other hand, is oblivious to the curse. So she really hates him but at the same time, is drawn to him. They kind of have a love-hate relationship going on. I really enjoy their banters because of Katia's colorful vocabulary and witty remarks.
The minor characters are lovable as well, even the not so nice ones. My favorite is Zeke, Seth's best friend. He's such a sweetheart in the story. I hope he gets to have his own book, too. And probably, with a cheerleader. Lol!

As I've mentioned earlier, the story is light and the lines are witty. Lots of scenes cracked me up. I can definitely say that there was no dull moment while reading this book.

If there's anything I can complain about, it's probably the anticlimactic ending. I was hoping for a more dramatic turn of events but the author made it gentle and quick. But when I think of it, it was probably better that way to maintain the light tone of the story. So I guess, no complains after all. Lol!

My rating for this book is 4 1/2 stars! I definitely love this book and if anyone asks me for recommendations on new YA books, this will be the first book I would suggest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good! 9 April 2014
By C. S. Rinner - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There were many things I really enjoyed about this book and a few things that could've been a little better. I'll start with what I liked! Seth he was just the type of hero I like! dark conflicted bad boy type. I really enjoyed your writing style, very fun and entertaining. I like the star crossed lover thing even though it's not new. :)

I thought a few things could've been a little better. The editing for one, I'm usually not distracted by editing flaws but I noticed a lot. Also if you are not a fan of loving from a far, and wallowing over not being with your soulmate then I wouldn't read this book. I like a bit anxt but it was a bit much. I would've also liked more detailed specifics of curse and how it was overcame. It was also pretty predictable.
All that being said it was cute and enjoyable! I would recommend it for the three bucks I paid!!
