Summary Via Goodreads: “When Ellie Aubrey leaves her only remaining family and moves to Colorado, she knows she’s risking her life. But she can’t ignore the possibility of what she might find there. What she didn’t expect to encounter was a bewildering connection to one smolderingly sexy Alex Jenner. But when Ellie’s worst nightmare comes true and threatens to destroy everything she holds dear, she must fight to save those she loves most. Even if it means sacrificing herself by revealing a terrible truth… sometimes not all monsters are make believe.
Exceptionally imaginative and magically romantic, Blue Violet delivers equal parts fantasy, romance, and suspense.”
My Review: This got a 4 out of 5 from me
I want to say for the song choice, “I’ve Got All This Ringing in my ears and none in my fingers” by Fall Out Boy, because i will proudly admit i love Fall Out Boy but i think the better choice is “Dirty Little Secret” by All American Rejects. So there is my song suggestion to give you a better “understanding” of the book…
Okay so this is literally tittering on the edge of 3.5 and 4. And i will explain one of the biggest reasons much later. And some of the reason i can explain right now, sometimes the pacing was slow and i was like, please something happen! And the explanations were a little vague at times – like i still don’t think i fully understand the differences and similarities of the Svatura and the Vyusher ….so there is that…
So now onto other stuff. PLOT: I thought that it was very original i liked the idea of the Svatura and what they were. I thought it was a new little twist on what most people would call either “superheroes” or even witches. I really thought it was a new type of paranormal that if you are looking for something new, like getting bored with the classics – which is okay everyone wants a new somethin somethin new right?. Anyways the plot was interesting enough this book was a lot about keeping the past somewhat a mystery, trying to keep a lot of things of a mystery really, but there was romance, and there was action, and there was what every good paranormal needs. Like i mentioned earlier sometimes the pacing was a bit slow but keep with it because its totally worth it. Okay so the POV confused me at first i was thinking it as going to be limited third person but then it seemed to turn into omniscient – and being me i really dislike omniscient most of time, it didn’t bother me to much in this book besides it started really late…but i don’t think that would be a reason to walk away from this book at all.
Ellie: She was interesting. She flatly states or at least i believe that she does that she is not a “fighter” but she most definitely is. She is quite some kickass. She is oddly flirty sometimes, and has these moments of pure awesomeness where she is just super witty and “sassy” they call her sassy a lot. I thought as one of the main characters that she is what a lot of people look for in the paranormal MC which is kickass and awesome. She is loyal and will do anything for her family, literally. Personally i liked her.
Griffin: First off i love that name! but Griffin is the brother, the twin brother. There relationship makes me wish i was a twin…oh wait i am…well makes me wish my twin relationship was like that. They are ridiculously close and don’t even have to speak to know what each other is thinking (and i giggle because when you read the book and you should you will get the joke that i am making). But anyways he is super loving and caring about his sister. He is protective but he is reserved and doesn’t speak much. I think in the sequel which i checked is more about him we might get more of his internal thoughts and personality.
Alex: The love interest and i know you were waiting patiently for me to start talking about this kid. He’s ego is way to big for his own good but that is probably why i love him. He is an interesting character i really liked him. He is hard to really pin down to what he is like, its more in his actions and responses that you see what type of person he is.
I saw someone else mention that they thought was a mix of something and Twilight and i see the Twilight aspect ONLY with the family, there are a lot of them and they kind of are just there for the most part. Three of them take on one entity really but again it think it would have been too over-whelming any other way.
Also sorry my other reasoning is on goodreads because i don’t know if spoilers will still follow over hidden on here so here is the link if you are just that interested: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/553624347
