About the Author

I’ve been a carbaholic since birth and am now hopelessly addicted to frozen Cokes. I mix coleslaw into my KFC mashed potatoes, soak cornbread in my milk and never drink from a straw. I’m not really a big chocolate fan (I know, GASP!) and I want to run a marathon by the time I’m 35. Ok, maybe 40. 45??? My one vice in life, apart from cupcakes, is Vera Bradley stores! Why does she have to make sure amazing purses?!?! I’m a world traveler at heart who loves setting insane goals and working to meet them. I adore attending book signings to meet new friends and am trying to overcome my introvert nature. I spend far too much time on Facebook chatting with fans and have a heart for raising funds to help Action for Autism, a truly amazing St. Louis based organization that helps kids reach their true and unique potential. I'm the author of: Forbidden, Book I of the Arotas Trilogy Reckoning, Book II of the Arotas Trilogy Redemption, Book III of the Arotas Trilogy Defiance Rising, Book I of the Rising Trilogy

I generally love a good sci-fi dystopia, but this one fell a little flat for me. It got off to a great start, but I quickly stopped enjoying Illyria's sarcastic attitude that seemed to pervade every conversation she had. Her first trip to the city left me tons of questions - in a good way - it was very well done. But I disliked Bastian as well. He became far too brooding and moody for my tastes. Eamon, on the other hand, just never seemed to get it. There was no development, and I felt very little emotion from him. The love triangle seems neverending. I don't mind a little hesitation or conflict between what is confortable and what is new and exciting, but Illyria seems to choose wrong every step of the way. And what's worse is she seems to know it! But just keeps going anyways! I really couldn't relate to her at all. The world building was a lot of fun. I loved the conflict with the aliens and the history that we learn as the story continues. It was quite fascinating. It's just hard to enjoy a story when you can't seem to like the main characters. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

Great book, but just like a lot of new books. She does what is expected of her, rather than choose what her heart tells her is right. It's obvious she is more powerful when with Bastien rather than Eamon. Eamon is a typical whiner because it's obvious he will never fully have her heart like Bastien could.
