Fragile Eternity

by Melissa Marr
ages: 14+
First sentence: “Seth knew the moment Aislinn slipped into the house; the slight rise in temperature would’ve told him even if he hadn’t seen the glimmer of sunlight in the middle of the night.”

I don’t know if it’s me, or the book, or my waning interest in the world, but I just couldn’t get into the story.

I tried; I gave it 150 pages, but everything was so angst-y, and off-kilter and… well, let’s just say that every single character, even Seth and Aislinn, was driving me bonkers.

So, I skipped forward, read the last four chapters to see how it ended, and then bailed. (Hey, at least I know how it ends…)

  1. Hi Melissa ~ I just read your commentary on 1800 blogger about a literary community in Wichita. Um, my name is on the wall in the basement of Watermark, does that count? :>

    I'm impressed with your reading lists. Many of my writer friends are on your lists.

    I'll recommend a newish YA book, IMPOSSIBLE, by my friend, Nancy Werlin. I think you'd like it, based on all the fantasy titles on your list.

    As for me, my 50+ published books for young readers are here: http://www.diancurtisregan.com
