Amazing

Usually, free books are,well, crappy. To much spelling errors,dumb story line and it ends to quickly. But that wasn't the case for this book. It was amazing. Now most people would give paragraphs and paragraphs of detail but all you need to know is that this book has it...

Now most people would give paragraphs and paragraphs of detail but all you need to know is that this book has it. It has a dash of romance,action,and it makes you think a little. That's exactly what i look for in a book.

    Plot...what you are doing? Plot go home. You are drunk.

    ** spoiler alert ** I think this was meant to be three books.....

    Book one - an introverted and shy girl is chosen as part of a documentary project to show what school is like for teenagers in a small town, along with 5 other teenagers. She learns to overcome some of her shyness and reach out to others.

    Book two - We may call him Father Time, but what if he was really your Father? Mortal Tiffany wins the heart of Time, but when her daughter starts showing unexpected abilities, that create ripples across the entire universe, she realizes this will unleash a legion of time-witches and manipulators, all seeking to control the power her daughter, Aeon can wield. As Aeon struggles to come to grips with her new-found identity and stop the world from destruction in a race against time.

    Book three - Sometimes when things seem to good to be true, they just might be. Alex was everything she ever wanted, handsome, caring, adoring. Until one moonlit night she witnesses his transformation, and realizes her boyfriend is a shapeshifter. A shapeshifter filled with possessive jealous and suspicion. Drawing a fine line between watching out for her safety, and stalking her like prey. Pretty soon, she finds herself trapped, when Alex and his family provide her, and her struggling post-cancer Mother with a place to live, and a job that finally pays the bills. If she turns away from Alex, it could destroy everything, and cost her, her life, because she knows too much.

    Instead this is a book with a confusion of unrealized plots. There really isn't a reason for the documentary/camera crews. It adds nothing, the characters still would have met and the plot proceeded exactly as it did without that by-line. It either needed to be more integral or left out.

    The daughter of time plot, is hardly relied on. She has a dream something bad will happen, and that she's been given the gift to stop time. When she does, it creates ripples sensed by the paranormal community, to wit a family of shapeshifters living in the area. No apparently there's time witches, and communities based around time manipulation, but that plot is never, ever gone into. You don't meet anyone from the time-control-community or know what they can do. There could be some cool action sequences with time-warping ninja's or something....but no dice.

    Her relationship with Alex is odd....he commits to the relationship way to soon, is easily jealous, possessive and violent, or over the top hanging on her every word obsessively. He's also almost too perfect, he's beautiful, athletic, he excels in every subject, he's just a little not great at basketball. Yes, his life just sucks. And it wraps up with them talking about "being my mate forever." When they are all of 18 (I think the plan was to get married in the future, but essentially he proposed she accepted).

    The bad thing coming she was warned about, was a league of zombie-giant wendigo's, that they take down. And....that was it. Are the wendigos there because of her time control abilities? A reason is never presented for why they are there.

    So all these interesting plots are sort of presented, but never developed into full stories. I liked the character of Aeon, before she got enveloped into Alex, the writing wasn't bad, just the development needed some help.

    Meh...

    There wasn't much of a plot and there was no real climax. The author started many subplots but never really finnished them so therenwas no real closure. I could have been written.by.a 12yr old in English class, the word choise wasn't very good and the characters didn't have much depth. With a lot more thought the story could have been much better.

    Both liked and disliked

    It started out good, but wrapped up in too much of a hurry. Ending was too quick - not really enough explaination as to why the 'things' were there at that place and that time, & why so many. Ending felt like the author just got bored with the story and put 'they lived happily ever after - the end'. Would like this book more if the ending was more thought out.

    Seriously?!

    First. That ending was the worst thing ever. They never even solved the conflict!!!
    Second. It felt like I was reading a cheesy version of Twilight but it was about a girl who could stop time.....
    Third. I still liked it. It was free and didn't have too many gramatic errors. Deserves about a two and ahalf, maybe three stars
