    I Also Recommend:

    Awesome.

    I started reading this book blind. KaSonndra sent me a message, asking if I could read her book and post my thoughts on it.

    I did just that. I didn't look at the cover or read the summary, the synopsis, or even the title until it popped up on my Kindle.

    May I just say: the first page drew me in. It offered a slight insight to the world this novel was set in, but didn't give enough information for the reader to know already what was going to happen.


    Things I liked:
    1. The characters. Namely Faris, Chela, and even Seth.
    2. The time-set. roughly post-reality/pre-big brother on the literary timeline.
    3. The secrets! I usually don't like mysteries, but Leigh wrote them so they kind of snuck up on me and bugged me until I finished the last page.
    4. The society. The "everyone's gifted except you, oh wait you're not even in the same class" kind of plot twist that I loved in Open Minds.
    5. The style. Leigh managed to write from a teenage girl's viewpoint without sounding like...well, a teenage girl. I love that.


    Things I didn't like:
    1. Not much. I'll be honest--whenever I read a book, particularly a free one, I tend to hone in on mistakes or sentences that didn't flow right. I didn't find any of these. I can say I didn't quite like the way Chela's father kept secrets or her step-relatives. But who would, really?


    What I look forward to:
    1. The sequel.
    2. Telling other people about this book.
    3. Fangirling over the storyline with people who have already read this.
    4. Paying money for the next book/edition. I love supporting authors I love.

    Must Read Fantasy

    In the future, the Earth is not the same. Angels must hide among mortals and Caduceans are sworn to protect. However, there is always a good versus evil. Who can you believe when no one will tell you the truth, not even your own father. A boy who won’t tell you everything keeps tugging at your heart. What secrets are out there about yourself, your family and the other characters. A must read fantasy that will keep you guessing and what to believe and who to trust right to the very end.

    When Copper Suns Fall was a great read!

    When Copper Suns Fall was definitely a novel I was looking forward to. Angels hidden amongst mortals, forbidden magic, a dystopian society and deeply embedded mystery - come on, that's an irresistible pitch! The characters were fierce and wonderfully crafted, leaving them each with their own personalities to fight over. The plot was strong, exciting, and followed a steady line right up to the last page. This dystopian society was just the way I like them - dangerous! It had a lot of cool angel aspects, involving an intricate trail of risk and fantasy in a genre where both angels don't usually tie into a society that's so controlling and bleak. When it comes to first impressions, When Copper Suns Fall has it all. A stunning cover, an interesting premise, and a YA genre that's sure to please. I was delighted to start reading this, with promises of a dangerous dystopian society combined with angels and action. However, I instantly noticed many similarities between The Mortal Instruments series and The Hunger Games that I couldn't ignore. I didn't even realize references to The Mortal Instruments were in the summary until after I read the book, and that sort of put me off. Those are huge shoes to fill, and I don't think When Copper Suns Fall did that. On its own it would have been a fantastic book, but in comparison to those two series it wasn't. This is something that always gets under my skin. Why would you exhaust your mind and imagination to write a book, and then compare it someone else's? Allow it to stand on its own - it's stronger that way. Other than that this book was everything I hoped it would be. The fantasy world was thick and overflowing, with a brand new flock of characters I loved getting to know. I adored Chela as the main lead and her personality was strong, loyal and fierce. Her dedication to her brother never wavered and it was something that tied me to her throughout the novel. The writing led you beautifully and smoothly through every scene, involving the reader in between battles and highly action-packed parts. The danger in this certain dystopian society I think was even more for Chela because she had more to hide and more to lose if she didn't. Readers who love their Young-Adult with Angels, mystery, action and lush fantasy worlds will no doubt love When Copper Suns Fall. It had something for everyone, and I would absolutely recommend it.

    PULLS YOU IN FROM THE BEGINNING! Awesome Read!

    Guys, I am reading When Copper Suns Fall and I was hooked from the beginning; I am thoroughly falling into Chela’s world! Chela is smart, courageous, and relentless in saving her brother! The girl is fearless!
    Of course I love the scenes with the pulse racing Faris

    Warm, beautiful, and original Cover Talk: This cover is beautif

    Warm, beautiful, and original

    Cover Talk: This cover is beautiful! I love the warm feeling of this book. And the angel wings are gorgeous.




    First Line: “My brother’s hand twitched.”




    Why I Read It: I was very intrigued by When Silver Moons Rise, the sequel to this book, but I have to read books in order so I definitely went out and bought this first.




    Characters: Chela is a sixteen year old girl who will do anything to have her brother back. She and Micah are twins and both possess angel blood. After Micah gets sick, Chela breaks tons of rules to figure out the truth and ends up getting sent to a camp where she becomes a reluctant spy and champion.




    Faris is a mysterious character that has quite a few secrets. He is probably my favorite character and discovering more about him throughout the book was very enjoyable.




    Jalen and Alexa are Chela’s best friends. There is the inevitable love triangle between Jalen, Chela, and Faris, but I don’t mind it too much. I love Alexa because she keeps Chela from going crazy. She is definitely the most laid back of the three.




    Plot/World-building: This book takes some getting into. There are so many characters and this future world that KaSonndra creates has so many rules and lore that it can be difficult to keep up with. But once I caught on, it was magical.




    I really love the angelic world and the different races of angels. These supernatural beings are very overdone but I thought that KaSonndra did a brilliant job at making them unique.




    Sometimes I feel like there was a little bit too much going on in this book. Chela wants to save her brother, is told she must save the world, and is still discovering who is she. Grant it, this is definitely the recipe for fantasy novels, and of course, since this is YA, there is the forbidden romance. But at times, I feel like the layers didn’t quite mesh together well enough.




    Writing Style: There are moments that I absolutely love KaSonndra’s writing style. It’s beautiful and descriptive without being ridiculous. The only issue I really had was with Chela’s inner dialogue. It was more annoying then insightful. That being said, I really enjoy her writing and will definitely read anything that she has written.




    Final Thoughts: While I had a couple of issues, I still very much enjoyed this book and cannot wait to read the sequel. I am beyond excited to see what is going to happen. AND, the sequel is told in alternating POVS. That will be interesting.

    If you are into The Hunger Games.

    If you dig sword fights.

    If you like adventure, romance, and a clever plot then this book is for you!

    15 year old Chela's twin brother is in a coma... but why? He was pushed from a ride at the fair. Chela knows it. But nobody believes her. Everyone insists that her brother is sick but she knows there is more to the truth than what the adults are telling her.

    A gripping debut novel that will be hard for you to put down and leave you wishing there was more.

    Loved it!! Amazing, we have angels in a dystopian type world.

    I was not sure what to expect from this book, but being blown away from start to finish isn’t what I expected. It was so beautifully written, it had me captivated right from the movement of Chela’s twin brother’s hand (Micah), who is in a strange coma.

    KaSonndra Leigh did an amazing job with this book. I fell in love with the characters, its not like most fantasy books I had read, it has that deep meanings and feelings in it. I really loved the main character Chela, she is so strong, determined, adventurous and fiercely protective of those she cares about.
    This book has it all, we have angels, and magic, and its set in a dystopian type future, but with all the deep feelings I mentioned in the fantasy world.

    Plenty excitement with these characters who are emotionally charged with the adventures of the celestial beings and angelic realms. I loved it.

    I love the fierce determination Chela has to find out what happened with her twin brother, and why he is still in this coma, she feels something is not right, and is determined to save him. Before they pull the plug.

    I do not want to say much past what is in the blurb, so not to spoil anything, but will say, I enjoyed the romance delevoping between Chela and……. Yeah, not gonna tell you who, lol. You can find out. As in the beginning, you do not know, 2 mysterious hotties show up, and it keeps you guessing for a bit. Don’t want to ruin that for you.

    Overall a fantastic read, for teens up to upper adults, it has it all for everyone. Your heart will swell up at the mushy parts, and get angry along with Chela too.

    5 out of 5 stars for me. Pick it up, you wont be sorry. I am looking forward to the sequel.

    Review of When Copper Suns Fall By KaSonndra Leigh I read this

    Review of When Copper Suns Fall By KaSonndra Leigh I read this novel as
    a chapter a day read, and let me tell you, it was really difficult to
    hold back and not race on through! The last five chapters I did read in
    one setting-I simply could not wait longer. This is a very complex,
    incredibly well-thought-out, urban
    fantasy/paranormal/supernatural/alchemical/scientific/dystopian story,
    which I am happy is to be the first in a series-because there are a lot
    of secrets, multiple characters, and backstory of which I wish to read
    more! There is so much content in this book, a fully-imagined and
    fully-articulated world-building, much to be admired and enjoyed. Set in
    a future area which we today would consider eastern North Carolina,
    society following “the Tidal Wars” is very restricted, according to
    genetics rather than by wealth or merit. Life is as rigid as during the
    Middle Ages, and those “without” (commoners) are restricted to living
    outside the walled enclaves. Those within the walls are subject to the
    governmental entity of the enclave, and the border guards and “dark
    soldiers.” It is much worse than the Orwellian creations of “1984.” Even
    in such a society, though, rebellion exists, and here it takes the form
    of descendants of angels-both the good and the fallen. I won’t say more
    because I don’t want to reveal any of this totally complex and
    astounding novel-I’ll just say-if you’re read it, well, read it again.
    If you’ve missed out so far-what are you waiting for? “When Copper Suns
    Fall” rocks!!

    Hunger Games or Twilight?...

    This book was a little hard to want to keep up with. It reminded me so much of The Hunger Games and a mix of The Twilight Saga, I forgot what I was reading at times. There was so much explanation in the book (trying to keep you straight and remember who is what) that it made it hard to follow. Maybe if I read it again, I'll be able to follow it better??

    I really liked the plot and the characters. You did a good job building your world and your characters. I was glued to the book until the very end and am definitely looking forward to your next book! I am hoping that you will write another book about the characters in When Copper Suns Fall. (hint hint)
    Again, well written and definitely a keeper! Thank you
