The Pace was even better then I anticipated. I was expecting just another clear cut "girl falls in love with immortal boy" story, but Shelena Shorts provided a much more meaningful story. Sophie Slone has moved to California with her mother. These cross country moves were not new to Sophie but this time she was able to convince her mother to spare her the torture of starting a new school for her senior year. So she will be finishing her high school career with an online high school. This doesn't leave many opportunities for Sophie to meet anyone. Her loner status is abruptly changed when she literally crashes into the beautiful and seemingly perfect Weston Wilson. Sophie is shocked by her immediate fascination with him and how peculiarly he reacts to her. She soon discovers that all the things that Wes has been telling her about his past don't seem to add up. The truth is bigger then Sophie could have ever dreamed. While Wes may not be immortal he has some serious longevity. The plot thickens when Sophie discovers her role in Wes's history and her troubling fate. Immortality suddenly means and array of different things. I think that this is one of my favorite books so far this year. The story gave me everything I crave: romance, mystery, the supernatural, and a touch of drama. I don't think this book has gotten the attention it deserves. Make sure you add it to your "to-read" list! http://bringmeanotherbook.blogspot.com/

OOOOHMMMMYYYGOOOODNESSSS. i LOVED this book. i want to marry Wes. seriously, buy this book. its soooo good. you just get wrapped up in it and its an amazing feeling. and the sequel, the broken lake, is even BETTER! as if you thought that was possible! the books setting is the bay area california, which where im from, so that made this EVEN more fun to read. the 3rd book in the series, The Iron Quill, is expected to release early summer 2011 :(. soooooo long to wait. but its okay. i'd rather it be really good and come out later than it suck(which isn't possible). hahhaha. but READ the book. you won't regret it.

Main character hard to like. Relationship with Wes felt forced. Weird use of commas. Wanted to like this book but just couldn't get there.

I love the cover of "The Pace"; the hourglass is very original and eye catching. The story itself is creative and brilliant. I had a pretty good idea that the story would involve an ageless character, but I was expecting the character of Wes to be a vampire or other supernatural being to explain this aspect. To my surprise he's just a regular guy but Shelena has used science to explain Wes' condition and it works well. His condition is refreshing, thought provoking, and believable. I also figured early in the story that Sophie would be a reincarnated soul but even that predictability didn't diminish the story's quality. This is another book where the characters are more mature which I always enjoy. Several aspects of Wes and Sophie's relationship were comparable to "Twilight's" Bella and Edward and yet were completely different. The book is very short and took me no time at all to finish. I'm glad it's a series because the ending left me very frustrated, I didn't want to stop reading. I give "The Pace" 5/5 stars. Although the book is short the story is wonderfully captivating and is sure to grab reader's attentions.
