Will happily review it, if it decides to actually come in the mail.
I received this book from the giveaway in exchange for an honest review.I do have to say that I agree with Pikachu Ketchum s review of this novel Although I gave it one extra star just due to the fact that writing a novel takes real time and dedication, and lots and lots of energy Plus, it wasn t totally horrible I thought the character interactions were quite a bit unbelievable and did not flow well Apart from that, there were grammer mistakes And grammer mistakes wouldn t be as bad if there we [...]
Despite the earlier parts of the book by the time I got to the and I found that I was really enjoying it Unfortunately the earlier parts can get very bad almost the entire first quarter of the book needs to be rewritten The problem is that this is very obviously one of the author s earliest attempts at writing a novel and as such the unrevised earlier parts show many beginners mistakes and just generally doesn t flow very well at all, there are also several very bad character logic jumps that al [...]
I didn t think it was possible,I Applaud you Travis Hall, I didn t think I would EVER have the honor of reading a book better then The Hunger Games Allora Is a wonderful character and I can t even Describe how much this book completes me Anyone would be crazy not to go find themselves a copy, I won this in a giveaway, It took quite a while to get here but it was worth the wait, my family is currently passing around my copy, and I will have to buy another, It s that good I hope to see alot from [...]

I m a huge fan of Percy Jackson and I really enjoyed I Am Number Four , so when I saw Sonora and the Eye of the Titans described as Percy Jackson meets I Am Number Four I knew I had to read it This description actually ended up being pretty accurate, too For some reason it took me a little while to get into the story, but once I was sucked in I couldn t put it down I love the concept, especially the mythology aspect I was hoping to like Sonora and Tanner a little , but maybe in the next book the [...]

Advanced reader review This is my first review as an advanced reader and I feel really terrible with my rating but I know I have to be honest Truth is I couldn t even finish the book I only made it about 50 pages in and I can t fathom trying to pick it up again after starting it over a month ago There are some major flaws in the book First off the characters have no personality For example in the first few pages the main character is nervous about cheer try outs When the head cheerleader comes i [...]
2.5 5 Stars but for I rounded up.So this book What to say I liked the concept and the Synopsis grabbed me As for the story itself it had me on a roller coaster of do I want to continue reading it or just give it up It started slow Typical high school kids dealing with high school stuff than when the action started and we met Sas and found out what the kids were I was totally digging it Then as I kept reading the story got bad again Boring, the kids were annoying I think Allora s character at tim [...]
The first few pages drew me in and a few pages promptly threw me back out There was no depth to the writing The plot was disconnected and there was zero backstory to build the world Nothing that happened made any sense One minute this girl, who seems tough, is going to cheerleader tryouts, but then one of the MEAN cheerleaders pulls a prank on her and she dissolves into a pouty mess who s hands suddenly light up in giant fire balls causing massive burns She goes to the hospital where her mom an [...]
An adventerous romp alongside four suburban teens as they struggle not only with the normal issues of life in highschool such as bullying, mean girls, teen anxst, self esteem issues and nagging parents, but throw in their new found magical powers and the fact that they have just learned they are not even from our world and you ve got Sonora and the Eye of the Titans I enjoyed this story Allora was strong and yet wasn t without her faults making her a very realistic character I recommend this as [...]
This was a First Reads giveaway book I found this to be a cute story for a YA audience Allora is a stereo typical teenage girl full of attitude and defiance She has to deal with the mean girls at school, with the queen bee of them all being the girlfriend of the boy Allora has a crush on Things start to get weird when Jennie the Queen Bee sabotages Allora s cheerleading tryout Allora gets mad and suddenly her hands are on fire From that point on Allora s world isn t anywhere close to normal Allo [...]
I won this in a GoodReads Giveaway.I thoroughly enjoyed reading Sonora, Eye of the Titans It opened my eyes to young adult fantasy novels His vivid sense of imagination and adventure kept me fully engaged and wanting to read I personally really liked how he talked about fictional characters and had his own little story and definition about them it made the book fun and entertaining to read I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read this summer I hope he comes out with a book [...]
I won this book as a give away It took along time to arrive but that s fine by me I love reading YA fantasy especially action packed adventures This is one of them I love spunky teenagers although I feel as if I needed to know from the book I also wanted to know about the baby in the prologue since it was never really explored The editing was so so since I found a few grammatical errors In conclusion, I would recommend this book for a quick read.
really enjoyable book right up my street about four teenagers two who already know who they are and two suddenly find out who they are.The story is gripping and holds you from start to finish how the four have to learn how to use their powers and save the earth
I loved this book I won a copy in the giveaways And I am so happy and honored to have been chosen I really enjoyed it the author is amazing and to the point If you need another book to read I recommend Sonora and the Eye of the Titans
I won this on and I m VERY excited to read this.
Both Percy Jackson and I Am Number 4 are awesome So I m really excited in getting a copy and read this book.
This was a good book, however I would have liked to see a little bit into the Tanner and Sonora.
This review is part of a book tour by Xpresso books Sonora and the Eye of the Titans is my comeback to Urban Fantasy, it s been a while since I ve read a book of this genre This book tells the story of 4 young adults and their adventures between two worlds That s one of the points I liked the most It doesn t tell the story from a totally different world, a different ambient We see the characters grow as teens and also we see how they know and try to control their abilities Also, I ve connected w [...]
Oh My Freaking GODS Dam what a book Ok guys this book is not my normal read This is a YA book And it was truly awesome It is skillfully crafted and so well written He just made you stop and think wow never thought of that This book is about Allora the rightful queen of Tianis But an evil man killed her father and he mother lost her life protecting Allora But Allora has no clue who she really is She and her friends know their different, but not the rest I love the small explanations through the b [...]
Sonora, and the Eye of the Titans is a young adult fantasy, in the similar vein of Percy Jackson Allora is growing up as a normal girl, whilst at the same time knowing that she is a Sonoran and having private lessons in magic and fighting Also, it took a while to figure out just who knows what they are, and who doesn t This book seems full of opposites from being normal and Sonoran, to the love interest who likes Allora but is with someone else when it starts, and then agrees to go to the Prom w [...]
I won this book almost six years ago in a giveaway I never reviewed it because I did not finish it and I did not finish it because I found it frustratingly unreadable Not unreadable as in unpunctuated, but I just struggled to be interested or take it seriously I felt so guilty about not finishing it that I didn t review it, which I m pretty sure is why I haven t won a single giveaway since.I d recommend this book to people who enjoy the B movie reading experience Read with that lens, it would be [...]
I picked up this book on for the Kindle since I d been given a copy of the second book in the series yet Reading synopses of the story and plugs on the author, I was looking forward to a new YA read in the vein of Percy Jackson or other similar novels While there were some similarities, the story does stand on its own legs in a unique way Below I ve included a brief paragraph about the world, then my own thoughts on the novel Working, will post shortly
DISCLAIMER I received an ARC of this book for honest review, as part of a blog tour.Prepare to find yourself with a new series starter And I mean if you haven t started this series, there s something wrong with you The characters were great Dax and Tanner were my favorite I love the mixture of fantasy and regular every day endeavors I really like the author s writing style The way each character is brought to life is totally unique They each have a voice and I loved it.
The character s seemed a bit juvenile for their age Events seemed to be thrown in for no real reason camp, for instance and it interrupted the flow of the book Book needs some editing Good story is there, just didn t hit the mark.
I have chosen to give this book a 5 star review, despite the many areas of grammar mistakes typos, BECAUSE it has done a really good job of delivering me a solid, fun filled adventure story to feed my mind and soul, which was currently really hungry Basically, it was over all really good and one I will probably re read again in the near future It already has me really wanting the next book Positives The prologue was very interesting and instantly caught my interest I love it when books have prol [...]
