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.

    Author, YOU ARE GREAT AT WHAT YOU DO.

    I love the book, but i really wish that it would keep going. The ending leaves the book open to so many possibilities of where to go with it, but i was sad when it ended. I love it, but wish that the author would make a second book. Author (idk yhe name, srry), i love your work here, so please, make a second and let me tell you, ignore the bad reviews because YOU ARE AWESOME. Dont forget, there will always be haters out there ragging on your work, but dont give up.

    6.5/10

    It's ok, but we all make mistakes. However, I personally hated the nickname for Gabrielle. Gable? Honestly? But the ending does leave you hanging. Does anyone know if there's a sequel?

    Good read. Looking forward to a series.

    I thought the book had a good plot and decent character development. Far too short. Im assuming this could be expanded into a series.
