Courtney Allison Moulton × 6 Summary Angelfire Free read ¿ 106 First there are nightmaresEvery night Ellie is haunted by terrifying dreams of monstrous creatures that are hunting her killing herThen come the memoriesWhen Ellie meets Will she feels on the verge of remembering something just beyond her grasp His attention is intense and romantic and Ellie feels like her soul has known Meanwhile I was reduced to staring at the wiry gray chest hair puffing out of Mr Meyer s polo shirt like overgrown steel wool and wondering whether or not he had ever considered waxing Well that s an interesting way of describing something As I looked at him I felt a certain fondness deep in my heart but I shook the feeling off Damn it she sees a pretty guy for the first time describes his appearance and clothing in detail and she has a special bond with him Fantastic Another growl came and then very heavy footsteps like T rex shaking the water cup Jurassic park style heavy footsteps This is how the first action scene is introduced Just sayin But I wasn t afraid A calmness washed over me and my mind analyzed at a lightning pace Strange memories and thoughts that didn t belong to me flooded into my mind faces and violence I d seen long ago in different times I looked up at Will whose face sparked the clearest and fondest memory I knew I had to fight now but I needed my weapons Are you freaking kidding me She gets the memories of reincarnated lifetimes so she never has to actually learn how to fight Or have to get to know this Will guy It s just GIVEN to her Biggest case of deus ex machina ever I think so I m going to name him Marshmallow I announced She s talking about a car The morning after she fights a demon or something sigh Rich girls You rich girls and your stupid names for your cars Chris said I like this guy We drove Kate s BMW Kate stopped to ogle a table topped with shoes by Channel fondle a particular bag in the Valentino collection I decided on a cute strapless cream Badgley Mischka cocktail dress I knew I had the perfect matching black Marc Jacobs satin shoes adventurous black mesh front Dolce Gabbana bustier sheath dress we went to eat lunch at PF Chang s Louis Vuitton boutiue with a new bag Jesus H Christ I nodded imagining what I d do with tens of millions of dollars Oh God the shoes I could get with that The Chosen One to save the world ladies and gentlemen By the way sidenote I m getting really tired of these really long explanations from Will They re really boring It d be way natural if they just incorporated the answers in the story instead of these page long infodumps They re making my eyes water Oh Other sidenote Why exactly is this girl the Chosen One I mean she s only good at fighting because of these memories and even then she doesn t put her sacred duties very high on her priority list just after her birthday party and movie night Plus she s pretty shallow and not very bright She s actually a pretty normal teenager which is fine but if she s a Chosen One she shouldn t be so ordinary Why would he say something so dismissive and hurtful Didn t he understand how important my birthday party was to me Wasn t I important to him Oh the pseudo problems of upper middle class teenage girls She bitches that her dad is never around when he s the one working to pay for her stupid car and her party I d love to be rich for a day It d be kinda cool to know what it s like when my birthday party going wrong is actually a real problem I don t think I ve had a birthday party since I was nine The reaper stepped toward me I am Ragnuk and I am going to eat you now HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Oh man I actually laughed out loud at this That s scary stuff right there Anyways this was fun actually no fun at all but I ve got a huge stack of awesome books I can t wait to read and since this probably won t improve my life in any sort of way I m dropping it The writing is some of the worst I ve seen in YA lit and that s saying something

Courtney Allison Moulton × 6 Summary

Courtney Allison Moulton × 6 Summary Angelfire Free read ¿ 106 Him for centuries On her seventeenth birthday on a dark street at midnight Will awakens Ellie's power and she knows that she can fight the creatures that stalk her in the grim darkness Only Will holds the key to Ellie's memories whole lifetimes of them and when she looks at him she can no longer pretend anything was jus Honestly it sounds a bit too much like Buffy for comfort except Giles is a hot guy with a Cloud strife esue buster swordStill I ll take a look ETA READ IT Okay here s my non spoilery reviewA good effort Which seems patronizing but really after struggling through the whole thing that s the only compliment I can really musterI mean she certainly writes action well and by well I mean you can clearly visualize what s happening except it feels like dancing while counting in your head and one and two and three then really letting the passion flow out of the writing I think part of that had to do with the fact that a lot of the fights felt like fights for the sake of fights on that later than something moving and intrinsically tied to the emotional and narrative plot Still good clear fight scenesThe idea is pretty interesting too though let s be honest we re only calling this uniue because it s decidedly different than Twilight plotwise anyway and now and days so much paranormal YA feels like an endless simulacrum so when you find a book that goes against the grain and again in the slightest of ways you take notice But if you ve watched Buffy this isn t any different Stop me if you ve heard this one girl demon fighter chosen one reincarnated again and again to keep fighting those demons Only she can defend the world against yadda yadda And there s the guy devoted to watch er protect her Except unlike Giles he s young and hot okay Giles was hot but and carries a 6 foot sword only I m guessing because the author is most likely an embarrassing FF7 fangirl whose been taught by Cloud Zack and Sephiroth that guys with really long phallic weapons are hot and really they are and it is Can t fault her on thatI mean it has the potential to be interesting but I ve just seen it all before Still even with a pretty well trodden premise a great writer could twist it into something really compelling But that s the problem Moulton put in a great effort but she s just not a great writer Not yet anyway She s decent But her writing style is lacking and unfortunately clearly shows her lack of techniuewriting sophisticationSo much exposition in the A style with Ellie asking stupid uestions that someone in her position in the current situation that she s in after just discovering her powers for example would not ask Certain uestion that I felt the author just threw in there just so the readers would have this bit of info Sometimes it wasn t even important to know And trust me there are much better ways to introduce interesting plot elements than just random fight Hey Will asks uestion Well Ellie answers Some of the exchanges between the two are just so laughably ridiculous you just can t imagine a regular person reacting the way Ellie does in the situations she s in And you can tell this is just awkward maneuvering by the author to make sure we know some piece of information or to set up for a joke that she really want to put in there When you stop seeing the story and start seeing the strings you know the author s doing something wrongThe fights were also though clear slightly annoying Like I ve read in another review there s a difference between action and adventure Adventure has the action that is actually important to the plot moving it along in different and interesting ways Action is just the random fighting that happens And you get that a lot Fights that happen in the middle of EllieWill s date or something just to spice up the narrative and to give the characters an excuse to angst over each other in battle It s like the random fights in an old school J RPG Walk walk walk OMG FIGHT then walk walk walk on to the next plot pointAnd the writing That s the biggest issue here the style of it Honestly the writing was extremely flat line The author seems to be able to convey teens pretty well except there s so little personality in her writing it barely ever really comes out This is even of a problem when the book s in first person First person narratives ESPECIALLY need a great engaging voice and some of the sentences are so clunky so dull and heavy handed it was tough just to keep reading The very opening of the book was where I realized I d run into problems with this Boring No flare nothing engaging nothing to stir the reader s interest to get the juices flowing Just Ellie is in school Class ends She gets paper HUH Really Isn t the first rule of writing to hook the reader from the get go It doesn t have to be flashy but think about the great books out there the evocative setting voice something interesting happening that reveals something about who the character is and this was just so balls out dull I almost put it down right there I mean don t agents and editors WARN writers about that type of stuff It s like every conference that s what you hear Opening pages opening pages What happenedLook I know that at least in terms of paranormal Young adult lit the standards are decidedly lower You can hate on me for saying that but with some of the crap coming out it s true It s become so corporate and commercialized it s really about trying to hit certain points that Twilight proved will absolutely bring in the target audience romantic wangst monsters special heroines hot boys etc Not to say that Angelfire is Twilight level You can tell the author was really trying to do something with it But because standards for paranormal YA have dropped so low and fangirls have become increasingly easier to please hitting those points become far important than the writing and execution That s why I suspect this will get a sizable following And really I feel like that s become the main marker of success for YA novels But the fact remains that in the hands of a experienced and sophisticated writer this book could have been a lot than it was The premise is interesting enough to bring in the readers and again it does indeed hit all those young adult paranormal points But the writing and execution of it was just so juvenile I can t in good conscious give it then a 25 Maybe 28 It s nearing a 3 but just not uite good enough to get there I d say if this was a story I found on fictionpressnet or one of those sites where amateur writers post up their original fiction and if I read it I d give it an enthusiastic review saying something like This is great You need to work on A B and C but if you keep writing and working on your craft you ll definitely be good enough to get published one day Keep it up Because that s exactly what this story read like a decent but ultimately flawed manuscript written by someone with talent but who just ultimately isn t ready to get published yet And yet is IS hence the low marksAgain I ll probably get tons of unhelpful reviews on this though let s face it the unhelpful or helpful buttons are fairly pointless used by fangirlsanti fangirlsthe author to hate on reviews that don t immediately agree with whatever opinion the button presser has about the book Still this is just my honest review It s just not a decent enough book for me to honestly recommend it to anyone other than those who already have pretty low standards when it comes to books Especially those for whom YA supernatural lit represents the pinnacle of literaturePS Strong heroine Let s get this straight Simply being able to fight doesn t automatically make a female character strong Particularly when she seems revel in being protected by the Hot Nice Guy who we know is a Nice Guy ie syndrome because of his numerous and fairly self indulgent not to mention creepy for a NUMBER of reasons displays of noble self sacrifice I really wish authors would realize that it takes than a sharp weapon to make your heroine impressive
