  • "Bewitching!"

    Overall

    This book was a really wonderful surprise. The story is involving, with a fresh twist on an old genre staple. It is complex enough to hold the interest, without losing the forward momentum of the story. It is wonderfully romantic and sweet without being too saccharine, and it took me until part two of the download to realise it was aimed at a younger audience. I am 28, and I was riveted. I would highly recommend this to any romantic, and I am eargerly awaiting the next in the trilogy, Linger.

    Overall

    I was very pleasantly surprised upon finishing this book - I immediately wanted to go on to the next one to continue the story! I am sure I am outside the intended audience for this book, being a good few years older than a teenage girl, but I was hooked.

    The writing is of a high quality, the story moves on quickly without being too obvious as to where things are heading ( I hate it when I can quess the ending a mile away) and the plot is not too unbelievable (crucial in a supernatural romance). The characters are fully realised, I feel I can picture them all in my head, which helps me to follow the story.

    The narration is also very well done, pitched very well considering the age of the characters and the range required. I found it very easy to follow and well paced.

    My only criticism is that the ending seems to come in a slight rush, which negates the excellent build up of tension that precedes it.

    I have already added the next two books in the series (Torment and Passion) to my wishlist, and eargerly await the release of the fourth (Rapture) next year.

    When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas remembers is his first name. But he's not alone. He's surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade - a walled encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze. Like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they came to be there - or what's happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything - even the Grievers, half-machine, half-animal horror that patrol its corridors, to try and find out.
