I felt like Evanescent was a twisted madern day fairy tale of Snow White I absolutely loved it Even if Gabriella Lepore did have me crying at the end Shame on her lol I have to say Evanescent was not what I expected but it was so AH MAY ZING The world built in this story is one I haven t heard before and loved reading something new and different for a change It was still in the paranormal fantasy genre that I love but had so much going on constantly There was no awkward wait, the drama began imm [...]
I adored this sweet, beautiful, funny and entertaining tale It made me laugh out loud, weep, shake my head and long for the days when I was younger I enjoyed this as an adult but would have loved it as a child The quality of writing, characterization and story were outstanding and reminded me of the wonderful Diane Wynne Jones works.The innocent love between Felix and Bronwen is heart warming and the brotherhood between Felix, Alistair and Loki is entirely endearing.I feel I cannot write on how [...]
This book 5 stars for breaking my heart and making me cry and I never cry.It was such a beautiful tale of friendship, of love and of selflessness It was dark, fun, with action, but also sweet and deep and tender.Think Disney but with a darker.There is some sort of insta love but strangely enough it didn t bother me as it usually does plus the books is pretty short so As I said, think Disney I have never heard anyone complain because the princess ends up with the prince This is a bit the same way [...]

Copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review This was my first read by Gabriella and I found it to be quite entertaining We follow three guys and our main character, Bronwen, as they try to protect each other while one of them is being hunted.I thought Felix, one of the guys, was hilarious His character was the one that captured my attention since page one His personality was utterly amazing to witness and his heart was definitely something to appreciate In my opinion, I felt like hi [...]
Evanescent is a young adult paranormal book I read this within a day unable to put it down It is slightly different than your usual young adult books with a paranormal theme Although you can see traces similar to retelling of fairytales and stories like Twilight, this book is its own.Characters The book is written in third person narrative mainly following Bronwen Bronwen is cast into a paranormal world that she didn t know existed when her grandmother had a psychic vision that something was hun [...]
I really liked this story, i think it was different to other stories and it wasn t predictable I wasn t expecting what bronwen discovered at the end, i was completely in shock because i knew they were hidding something from her, but never that I fell in love with Felix from the beginning, i have a soft spot for characters like him that are cocky, egocentric but kind and loving in the inside I really liked the other characters as well Bronwen, Allistar and Loki And the friendship between the thre [...]
If anyone wants to see a perfect example of snark and sass with sweet romance, I m shoving this in your face This book was wonderful, even if the ending did leave me pouting a bit A loose retelling of Beauty and the Beast, it s one of those I ve wanted to read for awhile, so when the freebie promotion came around, I couldn t resist The plot This book is a pretty quick read, about two and a half hours ish I kind of wanted expansion on the nature of the magical, who had made the magical weapons, [...]
Evanescent was a wonderful book It was an amazing story with characters I loved getting to know The storyline as well put together and it was extremely original I have to say, I ve never read a story like it I loved how the story didn t have too much of a complicated storyline behind it It was pretty simple, which made it a fast and easy read Gabriella had a wonderful way of throwing things at you and being able to keep things secret until the very end It definitely added to the drama of the sto [...]

I really enjoyed this book It was very well written and detailed The characters were very realistic, attachable, and dynamic, something that I believe is very important in books The book starts with a chase A young girl, Bronwen, is being chased by some unknown hunter for reasons unknown at first Her grandmother, a psychic, sees this creature coming for her and calls for the help of three young boys who are immortal due to a witch s curse These three young boys are adorable and naive due to thei [...]

4.5 5 stars.The Writing This point was what got me into requesting this book I heard so much about Gabriella Lepore from benjaminoftomes and he said many times how amazing her books are that when I saw this I just had to give it an opportunity And I m glad I did This book was fast paced and easy to read I enjoyed the writing We read mostly from Bronwen s POV but there are some scenes that we get to read from other character s POVs.The Story I liked the concept of this story.This is about three b [...]
I got this book for free some time ago I don t even remember, it s been that long on my kindle I have over 100 unread books on my kindle and I was scrolling through some of my older ones trying to read then so I could remove them and trying to keep organized since I am constantly getting books to read AnywaysI did not like this book The characters were unbelievable I think it might of been meant for a 10 year old girl Which I am not against reading books meant for young readers, as a matter of f [...]
4.5 This book really draws you into the story It s short but really well written and the type of story that is easy to get lost in What I think I really loved about the story was that it read like a true folktale even if it was a classically formulate YA fantasy It had all the makes of one of those epic stories In fact, as I was reading it, I couldn t help but to be reminded of someone of my favorite Celtic Folk stories from when I was a child and it was awesome Ciara ElizabethFull Review yafang [...]
What a great book This is a wonderful book for YA I think my granddaughter, who is a young teen, will like it as much as I did It is refreshing to read a book like this one I don t want to give away the story but I will say this It is about three boys who make an eternal mistake and the girl who saves them.I really liked the view point of this author and her writing style This is the first book of hers I have read and I hope it isn t the last Great job, Gabriella I was given this book in exchang [...]
Not entirely sure how I feel about this book On one hand, I liked the plot, but on the other, it didn t work well for me That being said, I think it might work better for a much younger demographic I bumped it up to 3 stars because of the ending, it was unexpected, or I m just a hopeful romantic that was caught off guard.
Wow.I m still reeling over the ending Oh the feels I really enjoyed this book It was sweet, funny and I adored Felix.It wasn t what I was expecting at all.A must read
I just finished reading Evanescent, part of a 3 book boxed set by gabriellalepore_books I found on All three are stand alone novels, and I chose to read this one first, since Amy Lee lead singer of Evanescence is one of my favorite female voices Yeah, that s how my mind works don t judge meThis tale concerns Bronwyn, a 16 year old girl who is being hunted by something right out of legend Her grandmother sends her to Felix, who agrees to protect her But Felix and his friends have their own secret [...]
And it was Beautiful Honest to God up until about 98% this book was going to get a 3.5 from me but the ending was, awe inspiring that i don t have the heart to stick with the 3.5, this book gets a solid four stars from me Two of my favorite lines and this had a lot of good lines I ve lived many years, He said, but I have never love so deeply, and so unconditionally until this very second I will live eternity loving you Um, okay, wow Still reeling over how beautiful of an ending that was Usually [...]
I m not crying, says the girl in a sea of used tissues.
ARC kindly offered by Xpresso Book Tours and the author in exchange for an honest review I gave a cut to my abstinence from books about witches thanks to Lepore who offered me a copy for this blog tour What can I say Obviously the first thing that hit me was the cover I found it absolutely divine Then I read the plot and I said let s try I noticed with astonishment and regret, that there aren t many books that deal with witches who ve read so far.The story begins with the escape of Bronwen, a gi [...]
To Finally Have An End or Love This story honestly left me conflicted, the plot itself is unique but the character chemistry felt odd and overly juvenile at times The novel is young adult fantasy with a female lead who is supposed to be modern day girl and a male lead who reminds me of Peter Pan with friends that really do resemble the lost boys.Set in England s Cynon Valley a seventeen year old girl named Bronwen Snow is rushed from her cottage by her grandmother Ada to seek sanctuary at The C [...]

The story is about Bronwen a strange name right Apparently of Welsh origin she is 16 and lives with her grandmother Life seems so ordinary and all she has to worry about is school and her grades In one night her world is turned upside down when her grandmother who is a psychic tells her that she has to leave to a safe place or she will die She tells Bronwen to run until she gets to a castle and she must ask for Felix Cavara who will be able to keep her safe But what exactly is she running from F [...]
I won a copy of this fantastic novella from a librarything members give away The blurb sounded good so I took a chance I m usually not that keen on novellas and tend to like my books to be at least 200 pages, but I m so glad I took a chance on this one because as it turned outI loved it to pieces It was a wonderful story Engaging right from the start with an incredible cast of characters Bronwen was an excellent main character, strong, smart with great voice Half the time I wanted to punch Felix [...]
A few minutes after reading the book, I concluded how I feel about it I really enjoyed it I did not like the ending because I am a hopeless romantic but, BUT I feel like it made Bronwen just grow as a person and character I usually don t read books that are written in third person, I just prefer first person, but I will say that I gave this one a shot and I m not sorry I had As far as the characters go, Felix was definitely one of my favorites Witty, charming, and just cute overall, and Bronwen, [...]
