There were a few grammar errors in the book but it definetly doesnt deserve all the bad reviews people are giving it. The novel is fantasy fiction if you don't like unrealistic things, fantasy fiction is a genre you need to stay away from. Every writer has the right to be heard without being ridiculed. If you rate a novel be professional and courteous. Think of if it was you, and you had an idea to bring to life and ignorant people tore you down. Authors get stonger in time. Being said, I enjoyed the plot. The author could have spent less time surrounding Gable's highschool life and elaborated on the ending more. I am not sure if it was left open for a sequel or that's the end. I look forward to seeing more from this author.

While the idea behind this short story was intriguing the book didn't appeal to me. The writing was too much like a teenage girl's wishful diary where all her dreams come true: academic achievement without effort, endless money and acclaim, love and power all for nothing on her part. No real action plot. It felt like the introduction to a series, but not one I am likely to follow.

    z Gryphon

    This book was good and people who like fantasy I guess would like it but I dont understand the big point. Theres never any action it just runs you through her life. At some parts I feel the other jumped to the idea to quickly. It was a fine book to read if there was no other or just to read on free time.

    Horrible

    This writer cant write worth crap and it seems like it was writen by a 12 year old(no offense to 12 year olds). Little info on outside characters and it also seems like in the beginning the main character was nice but no she's mean. The witer seemed as if they wanted to make the main character realistis but this i nothing but crap! This doesnt deserve more than or equal to 3 stars and it was a waste of time to read(even if i only read it during my math class).

    Well written with decent characters

    Odd & not my style. I wasn't particularly impressed but the book wasn't a dud either. I won't read another from this author because I don't like these kind of books.

    Ok

    The book was really confusing at times but would make for a better lengthy novel.

    Its alright

    The story had the potential to be great, or even good, but it didn't quite make it.
