As she learns more about her real origins, the prophecy concerning her future and that of those she cares for as well as about those seeking to assassinate her, this is a real page turner. The characters are robust, believable and they and the scenarios are brought to life by the author’s skilled word craft. I just didn’t want to put it down! There are so many unexpected twists and turns on this roller coaster ride, complete with kidnapping, amazing powers, high speed car and airborne chases all skilfully woven into a well formulated plot that keeps the reader guessing.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and can’t wait to read the second book in this superb series! It is a fascinating story in which friendship, loyalty, love and tantrums(!) play key roles. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys fast paced fantasy adventures involving super hero type characters fighting to protect their friends and human life as we know it.
Holly Martin dragged me in from page one with the coach crash and Eve not letting her friend die, this gripped me, would we all do the same? Where did Eve get her strength from and why where her teachers only interested in her survival?
Eve goes on to discover her life isn't as it seems, her teachers, her friends and almost everyone she knows are actually her guardians assigned to protect her, she also finds out that not everyone is there to protect her. She never realised the reasons behind her fathers strict rules was to 'train' to save the world that had prophesied. The story is gripping with plenty of twists and turns, but isn't confusing. I don't want to go into too much detail as this would spoil an amazing book for anyone that hasn't read it yet.
I loved Holly's writing style and the characters in the book come alive. From Seth, Eve's best friend, Eli the head of Eve's personal guard and the bond she shares with Lucas. I really didn't want this book to end and can't wait for the story to continue
Would recommend for anybody who enjoyed David Eddings and Terry Brooks
Eve is a normal seventeen year old girl on her way back from a school skiing holiday in France. Everything is seemingly average until the coach she is travelling on ends up dangling over the edge of a cliff. Two of her teachers rush to help Eve to safety but Eve is confused: why are they so focused on rescuing Eve and no one else on the bus? Things start to get even stranger as her teachers have the ability to hold the bus and stop it from falling and as Eve soon discovers, so does she.
Very quickly she becomes aware the two teachers are called Guardians and that they are there to protect her at all costs. When she returns home it soon becomes apparent that everyone around her is there to protect her. Even her dog, Quinn. Slowly she unravels the mystery and finds out the reason why she needs to be protected and why people are out to get her.
This book hooked me, from the second I started reading I couldn’t put it down. I even read it whilst I ate my breakfast this morning and I ended up trying to put a spoonful of cereal up my nose. I was dubious about starting this book at first because even though I’ve seemingly fallen massively in love with the fantasy genre, I was worried this book would confuse me and leave me back at square one. I needn’t have worried for this book was so engrossing and wrapped it’s large arms tightly around me. Everything was explained perfectly which meant I was able to follow the story extremely easily and do a lot of gasping and swearing when things started happening!
The plot moved at an alarming pace which kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.Read more ›
She soon finds out that she is The Sentinel, created to save the world and that all the people she has ever known are her Guardians, pledged to protect her from those who don't want her to fulfil her destiny.
This is the debut novel of Holly and she provided me with a copy of her novel in exchange for an honest review.
This book reminded me of Twilight, despite being nothing like it! For want of a better explanation it seems to have the same `atmosphere' as Stephanie Meyer's series. Yes it is a paranormal young adult romance but that is really where the similarity ends.
Eve is a strong character, accepting almost without question that she is different and that the world is full of beings and creatures that humans are unaware of. She is perhaps a little too accepting, there are very few occasions where she questions what she is being told.
She perhaps has little time to do anything other than accept without too many questions as many attempts are made on her life, interspersed with learning her new powers and responsibilities, and of course falling in love. The love story between Eve and Seth is a core part of the story and a lovely journey as a reader to take. Eve comes across as a genuinely kind girl, whose natural instinct to care for others soon has an effect on her Guardians, who aren't built for human emotions and she soon accepts that it is her destiny to save the world, even if it means dying in the process...Read more ›
