Text-To-Self Connections

This is not similar nor does it remind me of my life because I have not dealt with  the problems any of the Characters have faced.

This is really different from my life and others since we don't face the everyday challenges that the characters have faced.

No something like this has never happened to me since I'm not nephlim nor have I been abducted.

When I read this I felt exited for what was going to happen next. I couldn't put the book down.

I have learned that memories do last forever and no amount of power can take that away from us.

Book Review

The book was not confusing nor was it hard to read. It was well written with the authors thoughts coming well through.

The book was predictable at some points but it had lots of shocking moments that made you drop the book.

I did like the ending because it was dramatic and it left you thinking how the series would end with the next book.

The authors style was descriptive especially when she described the characters. It created a mental movie.

I would rate the book a 10 since the thoughts were well written and came out clearly.
