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.

    Good story - writing not so good

    Before I got my Nook, i did not run into so many poorly written unedited stories. Come on, Nook. Please make sure the writers are actually capable writers and not eighth graders funnin' with you! Why should ebooks be poorly written and not even edited?

    That said the story is actually fairly good if you can get past the writing.
