A must read by all accounts
Loved everything about it .
I read it very quickly and thought it was a good enjoyable YA indie read. I struggled slightly with paragraphs of info dumping a third of the way through, but it didn't really impact my enjoyment and once I got past half way I was hooked. The 2nd half of the book is very well thought out with some good twists & turns... and I love Hugh! I will be downloading the sequel Capture!
Shay has the ability to talk to ghosts and is surprised when she finds someone else with the same ability. When she discovers that her other gifts are the result of her missing father's genetic experiments and that she and Hugh are Soulmates expected to fulfil a Prophecy and defeat the Darkness, a normal life vanishes forever.
This book didn't work for me on quite a few levels which is why I have rated it as two stars, though 2.5 is probably more accurate.
I thought, on the positive side, that the cat shifter and ghost talker plot was a bit different and showed that the author had some imagination and interesting ideas. The early parts where she was communicating with Wendy to help her to find her father and with her friend Jeremy were good and I enjoyed the scenes where the ghosts took centre stage. The back story with the research her father was doing and drawing the wrong sort of attention to himself was also quite interesting. Had the book continued on with the ghost side of things, I think I would have given it three stars and called it a decent read. It didn't get too descriptive and although it was a bit slow in places, it was doing enough to keep me reading at that point.
The science fiction elements were stretching bounds of reality a bit with the whole drink cat blood and become a cat shifter, though I can forgive that when it is a paranormal story. Then there was the idea of a man removing his supernatural genes and injecting them into his daughter. I think a few science experts will have issues with a few of these things! Like I said, in a paranormal or sci-fi story I can accept pretty much anything for plot so this wasn't really an issue for me.Read more ›
I tend to steer clear of ghosts, I’ve read a few books with ghosts in and just not enjoyed them. I guess it all depends on how they’re used in the story. I had some doubts after signing up for the review blitz but I can now say with all honesty the doubts were unneeded. I really enjoyed Reveal and I’m glad I chose to sign up.
I’m not quite sure why I liked Shay. Usually a character like her would annoy me but she surprisingly didn’t. I felt sorry for her as she felt lonely, not knowing there were others of her kind. Even though she had her mum, her brother Chad and her best friend Liv, there was nobody to share her secret with. She’s good under pressure, thinks of others before herself (mostly) and does what she must. What did annoy me was how quick she fell for Hugh, sure she’d seen him around but they’d not known each other long before she used the L word :(
Hugh I didn’t like much even if he is a hottie. He was full of lies and hidden truths, why couldn’t he just be up front from the start? I hate it when characters hide things, surely their lives would be simpler if they told the truth from the get go, no? I did admire how he put Shay before himself though.
The story I enjoyed. It was different and full of surprises. I love not knowing how things will turn out and I couldn’t guess with Reveal. I even finished it in one sitting, I just couldn’t put it down. A nice, fun quick read.
Now the ending is a completely different story. How can it end there?Read more ›
