    Camilla by ZoeCopeman (Wattpad)




    Camilla Waters has fought knights, tricked trolls, and saved dragons, well in her head at least, but she never once thought she would be doing it in reality. All Camilla knows is a dull suburban life with her parents she barely sees and her neighbor, ok, somewhat best friend Josh.

    Cam is just your run-of-the-mill 10-year-old with an unhealthy thirst for adventure. But all that changes when the crack in her living room wall starts to expand and out pops a strange old elf with a habit of cursing after every word she says.

    Without much regard for her safety, Cam jumps into a magical world she hoped to see in her dreams. There she must face not only her fears, but also her past as a great destiny unfolds before her…of course, that is if she can survive the Darkness that is brewing underneath. 

    Okay, so this book is aimed at a younger audience. But I found myself enjoying it immensely. The characters are well developed and the plot is quite funny and original. The whole fantasy aspect of this book, appeals greatly to me, being a huge fan of Harry Potter. Now this is different from Harry Potter, but just as good in my opinion. It takes all mythical beings such as elves, trolls, dragons and faeries and places them seamlessly into the plot.

    The book starts off with an elf, who has sent to sit an old cupboard for all of eternity, to look through a crack, though he doesn't know what. As I got through this book, I found myself really sinking into the plot. Even though it is for younger readers, it is a book that can be read by anyone. I could actually imagine families gathering round to read it, even the adults hanging on to see what happens next. It is witty, engaging and uses the right language for the authors target audience. I could easily see this book on shelves one day.

    I couldn't recommend it highly enough!

  2. Everlasting Life by AlyssaVienesseTan


    Summary:  "You don't know what you've started," Avellana snarled, holding the man in a tight grip. "Or do you know what you've done?"

    "Oh, I know what I've started, girl." The man smirked, grabbing the stone out of his pocket. The stone was beautiful, it reflected the light, turning the stone into different shades of blue.

    He threw the stone in a valley of depths with a victorious smirk on his face. "I've started a war."

    *** Trouble is rising in the Potestatem Clan: deaths are pursued, sides are taken, quests are received, and a war will ensue. Avellana Rivers isn't ready for the problems that will be coming her way; she never thought that life as the clan leader would be so difficult.

    Now, a missing item must be returned to its rightful place, a vampire will rise from its sleep, and a mystery needs to be solved. Will Avellana Rivers discover the clues and secrets coming her way? Or will she fail?

    When I first started reading this, I was highly sceptical about it. Considering it was vampire, and that is usually a genre I steer well clear off, I expected to hate it, but I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that I didn't hate it. I was hooked straight from the first page, even the summary - to me - was enticing and interesting.

    The book actually starts with the death of a vampire (Literally, that's how it starts). The book depicts extreme attention to detail and does something that many books fail to do, it humanises vampires, giving them fears and emotions, which is quite an interesting take on vampires. The book starts off pretty quickly but doesn't give away too much information about the plot itself, a feat that many autours fall short off.

    There are a few awkward sentences and grammar mistakes in some places. But it is a well written and engaging piece and I couldn't congratulate the author enough for writing such a good story.

  3. Behind The Glass Eye by DelaneyWillow



    Two lives. One body. Zero control. With multiple personalities and no memory of her alternate identity's actions, Anny Day is left chasing her own shadow.

    Anny's mental disorder flares under stress rendering the results horrifying. Within seconds, she turns from a depressed law enforcement agent to a vengeful serial killer.

    When the people closest to Anny suspiciously die, she wrathfully holds her adopted parents responsible. She swears to avenge her loved ones...no matter the costs.

    Her only chance of regaining sanity lies within the hands of one person. The glass-eyed man.

    "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

    I always find it quite difficult to read books in the POV of a serial killer, or someone with a multiple personality, for the sole fact that it is notoriously difficult to get into someone who is possibly insane's mind, and really understand how they tick. A lot of author's just use it as an albeit good plot device.

    In this book, however  I think the author manages to pull it off. From my personal opinion, I think the author has done her research, or is just particularly good at getting into the mind of someone maddened by grief. I read this all the way through in one sitting; and not at one single point, did I feel my attention waver, or boredom setting in.

    It kept me interested from page one. It was a combination of the myriad action scenes and the beautiful way the sentences seemed to flow, fitting in with the next chapters perfectly. There was a point at the start, where the speech was a bit unrealistic, but towards the end of it (it's not finished), it got better and reads like a published book.

    I even found myself crying on some pages. Especially (and I won't give away spoilers), towards the end. A lot happens in this book, but I really think that the author manages to make it work. It is a fast paced, action packed piece of literature, and I couldn't recommend it enough.

    Fading Stars by youthfulwriter (Wattpad)


    When a drunken beggar opens up a new world of opportunities to Luke, he is thrust into a journey of elephantine consequence.

    Spurred on by a bunch of grouchy gnomes and an omen in the form of disappearing stars, Luke must decide between what he wants or the hopes and dreams of a mysterious girl he meets along the way.
    What happens when two ancient worlds threaten to collide, sending opposing civilisations into oblivion?

    The answer is in the stars.


    This is an interesting piece of work, drooping heavily in fantasy and adventure. The title, summary and even the book cover draw you in straight away. I don't know if the author intended it or not, but the first chapter shocks you so much that you have to read on to see if similar things happen, and indeed, if the other chapters are as packed with action as this one.

    It is well written and original, with few mistakes, though I found myself not really focussing on those as the story wore on. Not being an avid fantasy reader, I was pleasantly surprised when I enjoyed the easy to read piece of Wattpad literature. 

    The writing is simple with little detail that seems to work, there is just enough detail to get a picture, and then the imagination takes over. I like how it is set in normal times, and not in a fantasy guild, reminding me forcibly of popular series such as Harry Potter, and though I loathe to admit it, Twilight.

    And though this book is completely different from Harry Potter, and Twilight, it is still a well written, modern day fantasy, and if you're into this type of stuff then I cannot recommend it enough.

  5. You by zoey_ross (Wattpad)


    Rose is delighted when her crush asks her out. Throughout their relationship everything seems to be going perfect, despite some rough spots. So when he dies, she decides to write it out - just how did she miss all the signs that could have saved his life?

    This is only a short book, but it is jam packed full of emotions that has you in tears by the end of every chapter. This is not a story with a happy ending, it is a story with an extremely tragic ending, and I think that's what makes it all the more realistic.

    The story is written as if to a letter to the protagnoists boyfriend, Nate, who we slowly find out suffers from depression. From the off, we know that he commits suicide, whether it's from the subtle hints dotted throughout the pages, or the prologue.

    All I can say, that it deals with a sensitive topic and is so desperately sad that it will leave you feeling raw inside with tears running down your face. For those of you who have ever suffered from depression, I think the writer really makes you identify with Nates character and his pain, but at the same time, you want so desperately for the protagonist to have her happy ending and for Nate to improve.

    Unfortunately, that doesn't happen, and this ending is one that is rather sad and tragic. I cried throughout this, the writing being so effective in portraying the emotions of the characters. It was full of regret that just felt so real. I will warn you it deals with the very real, and very sensitive subject of suicide, so I will warn you if you have ever been affected by this, or are prone to triggers then to read to caution.

    Other than that, it is a beautiful book, and I couldn't recommend it enough if you want to read something that will make you cry.

  6. Athena's descendants and the Jewel of Barthimia by callumespleyclegg (Wattpad)


    After two tiresome years of searching, the twelve ring bearers are finally united.  When Jay Perry joins the group, the Gods talk of a quest which they must undertake. Five must fight their way around the globe to find the powerful jewel of Barthimia, sending all mythical encounters back to Hades, back to the dreaded underworld. What might they find? Will they even return? Will Athena's descendants continue to fill their destiny as protectors of Olympus?

    Find out in this gripping novel, the start of a thrilling series following the twelve ring bearers on their nail biting quests. The prophecy has begun. The reign of the ancient gods is coming to an end. Only twelve talented youths may take their place. These youths are Athenas Descendants.


    I'll start off this review by mentioning the fact that this is now a published book, and available on Amazon and Waterstones. It bases heavily around Greek Mythology, a subject that interests even the more sceptical of us, though we seldom care to admit it.

    Straight from the summary, I was hooked, being a huge fan of fantasy greats such as Harry Potter, I was quite excited to read the newest published thing in fantasy. I wasn't disappointed.

    Nowadays, it is notoriously hard to write an original fantasy story, most of the plot lines having been used before somewhere along the line. The author manages it, and transforms it into a well written and interesting fantasy tale.

    I think it goes without saying, but a good fantasy book should hook the reader from the very first word, and I will admit, this book did it for me. Something a lot of fantasy books fail to do.

    The books straight away punts you into an action scene, and though this is often hard to do, the writer pulls it off with little effort. I found myself literally on the edge of my seat the whole way through, and when I finally reached the end, I immediately wanted to read the next in the series, much like I was when I was with Harry Potter.

    Now this is the unedited version, so I daresay that the edited and published version will be even better. I will be definitely searching for this beauty in my Kindle library.

  7. Time and Place by elementalcobalt (Wattpad)


    At the right time and in the right place, one man can change the universe.  When an unknown force changes his fate, Darian finds himself in the distant future, trying to cope with a universe he doesn't understand. Stuck among a space faring civilization on the brink of rebellion, Darian must work to protect those he cares about, and avenge those he lost. Follow through this science fiction fantasy adventure as Darian faces worlds he does not recognize, a past he cannot remember, and powers he cannot control.

    Straight away, just from the title and summary, we know that this is science fiction, with a little bit of fantasy thrown in. An interesting combination, but nonetheless it seems to work. The writing itself is beautiful and effective, it really makes an impact on the reader, even if they don't necessarily read that genre that often.

    Things happen quite quickly, but then again, it does start with the prologue, where straight away, you are thrown into the story, into the midst of the storyline. Now, not being a fan of science fiction, I will admit that I was more than sceptical about reading this. I thought it would be boring, and full of long, sciency words, but I was very wrong.

    Though written like a science fiction book should be, it is far from boring. The sentences flow well, and mingle together into the storyline quite well. It is well planned and thought out, with no unnecessary chapters.

    Now I will admit, it can be hard to read if you don't like this genre, but if you persevere, then I'm sure you'll get into it and enjoy it immensely like I did. It is both well written and quite original if I do say so. Though I can't really say, having not read a lot in this genre.

  8. Le Gais Paris by will24951 (Wattpad)



    This is a story about three young adults, finding who they're in the filthy streets of Paris. Michael a naive, posh boy from England arrives in Paris seeking a good time with his equally posh friend Thomas. what he didn't bargain for was that he would be accosted by a damaged young girl named Evangeline after trying to enter the Moulin rouge. She warns him of the danger of debauchery, which she dragged herself out of and shows him the real wonders of Paris.

    He becomes infatuated by her, and she becomes infatuated by him, but both of them have their demons, which constantly eat away at them, but will it destroy their relationship or make it stronger?

    This story is very interesting in many respects. It is a historical fiction, set in the beautiful city of Paris, hence the title. It is both beautiful and realistic, and shocking in an effortless way, it just seems to roll of the page.

    The prose is beautiful and well done, yet it suffers no danger of being "Purple" , a shortcoming that a lot of authors struggle with. To be quite honest, I'm surprised that it doesn't have more reads and votes than it does, but it doesn't matter in the end, because it's such an effective and beautiful piece.

    It does have some sexual content, that would be unsuitable for some readers, but the author warns of these, and honestly, this isn't all the story is about, and I'm sure you can look past that and enjoy the book.

  9. Livid Shift by DarlingNikky


    Summary

    One obsession can change your life forever- well in Simon Danforth's case, one obsession and a handful of lies.

    Now a high school junior and part-time amateur investigative journalist, Simon tries to forget the horrors he endured two years ago. The disappearance -or 'move' as everyone calls it- of Kye Lamia the love of his young life. And several horrible mistakes he made as a boy who discovered he had the power to transport and travel back in time. A boy who wanted to be a superhero. But fate never intended for Simon to forget.

    Learning that Kye was involved in a local drug ring, a drug ring still ran by his high school principal, Simon decides to go after the biggest lead of his life and find out once and for all what happened to the girl that got away. After his story about the principal is released, Simon becomes a local hero. He even meets a girl that could make him forget about Kye, well a little bit. But something a prostitute tells him about Kye makes him believe someone made her disappear.

     His investigative instincts flare, so he digs deeper. But before that happens, he has to figure out how to stop the harassment of the remaining drug dealers. Impress the peculiar girl with secrets of her own. And not lose his mind in the process. The not losing his mind part would be easy if his power, 'shifting' as he calls it, didn't induce debilitating nightmares. Nightmares of his past.

    A past that now wants him dead.

    So Livid Shift is the first ever novel that this author has attempted to write, and honestly, from the quality of the writing, I am surprised. I certainly couldn't write a novel like that, in fact, the first novel I wrote (fanfiction) wasn't as half as well written as this author's work is.

    It is written in present tense and first person, which just seems to fit in so well with the plot and storyline. You can tell that the writer has put a lot of effort into his/her story and it shows.

    The first chapter starts off with the protagonist following his principal, whom he believes to be a drug dealer, and he is hoping to uncover him and write a newspaper article about it. Straight away, you realise that this is not going the same way as other books of this genre. How many books can you honestly say you've read that the principal is a drug dealer? Honestly, now?

    I'll be honest here, and say that I thought I wouldn't enjoy this book. I usually stay well away from this genre, but upon reading this, I was pleasantly surprised. It managed to keep me on the edge of my seat and wanting to read more the whole way through.

    Disregarding the minor grammar mistakes, this book is well written and most definitely publish worthy. If you like this genre, and even if you don't, then I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

  10. Behind The Scars by AutumnFireflyx

    Summary

    “More than anything else, I believe it's our decisions, not the conditions of our lives, that determine our destiny.” - Anthony Robbins

    It is believed by many, that your decisions in life shape you, and not the "condition of your lives" but can you really make the decisions you want, in a world where some are treated so unfairly? When living in an abusive home do you really have the option of running away? Because surely, you will be found.
    Meet Faye Waters, A self-proclaimed pessimist - with reason.

     Living in countless abusive homes, she finally found one where she belonged, yet their lived an abusive foster Dad. Faye now lives in a care home, one where she actually belongs but schools a struggle with the countless bullying and physical abusive.

    So Faye does something that many would not even dream of doing, she goes to fight for her country, leaving her old life behind, the abuse, the torment and her well kept secrets, but Faye is about to be shocked with the amount of secrets she's about to find out. After all you have to meet some mean people in order to get to the good...

    "Distance does to love what wind does to fire; it extinguishes the weak and fuels the strong."


    The moment we start reading this book, it is heavy with sadness and tragedy, yet well written. We meet Faye Waters who has had a really hard life. From the horrors she witnessed in an abusive foster home, to the constant bullying she has to endure every day, you can really feel poor Faye's pain.

    Her pain is only increased as we learn of her suicide attempts and the extent of the bullying, which is awful and degrading. In this book, Faye makes a very brave decision and decides to fight for her country, instead of staying behind and dealing with all the problems that she will leave behind.

    This book is beautiful yet so heartbreaking that you just want to reach through the screen and give Faye a big hug. A lot happens to the young girl, but the author manages to make it seem real.

    The prose is simple yet effective and seems to blend well with the message of the story. I will warn you, it is not an easy, or lighthearted read. If you want something to make you cry or feel raw inside, then this book is the one for you. It is so beautifully written and can provoke a lot of emotions. I cried all the way through.

  11. Chains, Charisma and Congress by SabrinaElouardi


    Summary

    Everyone has a dirty little secret.

    As the United States of America begins to crumble into oblivion, Angelle Rhapsody, the daughter of the notorious senator; finds herself trapped in a blood-infested world of supernatural creatures and magical entrepreneurship. After an encounter with the enigmatic Felicity Schinller, Angelle has no choice but to switch lives with this girl with eyes of danger. But little does Angelle know that everyone in El Matador Beach, one of the most expensive zip-codes in the world, has motive. Stealing Angelle Rhapsody's identity was just the beginning of Felicity's Machiavellian plot.

    She was going to get even. She would make the guilty fall like petty dominoes. She would make the lives of her enemies far more excruciating than death. She was going to crucify those who wronged her father, who died with the reputation of a merciless terrorist, the most delicious prey on her radar being the Alpha Hawk Silvers and his Luna, Aphrodite of Queen Aisle's--a picturesque werewolf pack that bathed in riches, luxury, and a glittery reputation.

    Knowing that Schinller is out for blood, Angelle finds that the reason for this is deeply personal, and that the Luna and Alpha have ties to Felicity's family in the most obscure of ways. Unknowingly, Angelle finds herself in the midst of a fresh blood feud between many of her father's business associates and the followers; as well as the conspirators of Edmund Core and Aleksandr Schinller, shifters accused of doing the bidding of a group of lycanthropic terrorists. 

    Ultimately through this battle of good and evil, Felicity is left  with the choice of blood over revenge and love over selfishness as her mate and past   saunters into her plan of vengeance. But through the maze of lies and schemes, Felicity always remembers why she came back to the place of her nightmares.
    She came because this is not a story of forgiveness and absolution. This is Chains, Charisma, and Congress; the beginning of the end.


    This book is quite clearly fantasy from the paragraph. The author uses a broad vocabulary  yet without being boring or showoffish. The words seem to stitch together seamlessly  and the writing style is very mature. More for older readers than children.

    Now, I will be honest, this is not usually a book I'd read if I saw it in a shop, but that is not to say that I don't see the appeal. It is original, well written with beautiful prose without being classed a purple. You can see a target audience starting to emerge as the pages progress, and though it can be difficult to read, it is certainly enjoyable.

    Those of you who are fans of vampire/werewolf, books that seem realistic, then this is most certainly your cup of tea. The plot is one of revenge, and that is what makes it all the more interesting. You don't see many of this genre floating around, and to find one with that twist is quite refreshing.

    If you can get past the slow start, then I know you wouldn't regret it. It is both interesting and captivating, and I couldn't recommend it more!

  13. The Shopkeeper by Olivieah

    Tuesday, 20 August 2013

    The Shopkeeper by Olivieah

    Summary

    "You are not his, you are mine!" Michael growled angrily while pushing me to the nearest wall gently. My body shivered in response.  My heart was beating out of my chest along with the speed of my pulse.  Falling in love with a mysterious, possessive, over protective and easily jealous guy wasn't going to be easy. Infact, being with the most sweetest, caring guy in the world wasn't going to be easy either. Living with him was a demand; being with him was by choice. I had fallen in love with him, I just hoped he wasn't like my ex...

    As soon I started reading this book, I was hooked. The writing style is mature, yet easy to get into, and the plot is intriguing. Things start to happen quite quickly, but in all honesty, I just think this is how the plot goes, it goes with that perfectly. Sometimes, fast paced is the best, and it certainly shows in this Wattpad novel. 

    Only the second chapter in, Lexi, the protagonist is taken in by Brooke, after escaping her abusive and controlling ex boyfriend. She is given a job and a place to stay, and things look to be looking up for the protagonist. 

    Though the book doesn't have a great deal of detail, it keeps your interest piqued, and somehow, with the book, it goes well. There are a few grammar mistakes, but they are easily overlooked, with the nice writing of the book! Small snippets of humour are injected without, and many times, I find a small smirk on my face.

    The plot is quite original, though I have seen plots like this before. To me, it doesn't seem cliche, and already, even before the book is halfway done, I can see the romance budding. Lexi is likeable, as is Brooke. The character seem to develop over the chapters, making for an easy read.

    Along with the snips of humour, other emotions are present during this book. You can really feel what the character is feeling and identify with them. Even if you've never been in her situation yourself. The book is quite popular on Wattpad, and I can see why. I would definitely recommend it to all book lovers!

  14. Red Halo by AxisDreamer


    Summary

    1479. There is a plague about...and I made one tinsy tiny mistake. I brought it home. But now I am trying to redeem that, I am trying to be a good guardian angel. It's taken some time but I think I am finally making up for my mistakes. That is until I make another one...

    This book is set in the past, around 1479, when the Great Plague would have been slowly starting to make its rounds. The book speaks of a young person, Kacey, who is affected by the disease and eventually succumbs to it. The writing style of the book suits the plot and the genre perfectly, you can see the author's voice shining through from Paragraph one, and it is as captivating, as it is illuminating.

    At this point, we find out that Kacey's soul has been chosen to train as a guardian angel, and understandably, he accepts it. Now throughout, this book is injected with humour, that actually makes you chuckle appreciatively. It's not like the author tries too hard, it just happens.

    To me, the book takes a serious topic, being the Black Death, and makes it witty and interesting. The plot itself is quite original, and very easy to read. The writer has an easy writing style that keeps readers interested, they don't waffle too much, but still manage to give details, enough to keep your mind occupied and your imagination running.

    Though, a few times, the author gets their tenses mixed up, it's few and far between, and the writing is of a high standard, definitely good enough to get published with a bit of tweaking.

    Not once, while reading this, did I find my interest levels drooping. I was kept wanting more from start to finish. It truly is a beautiful book and I couldn't recommend it enough! I'll provide the link below, so you can see for yourself. Honestly, you won't regret it!

  15. Rosie's Truth by Tessie2004


    Summary

    Catherine Rose Rogers. For a year now, that name has been enough to scare a Royal into running in the opposite direction. The girl behind it, Rose, is about to lose everything she knows, but she's going to gain a whole hell of a lot more in the process... just so long as she can stay alive long enough to save the people she loves, stop a psychotic Phoenix from taking her for his own, and accept a long forgotten heritage.
    Book One of the Ashes of Dreams Trilogy

    Our story starts with a lone, cloaked figure wondering down a sidewalk (pavement for you fellow Brits!). Straight away, this instills a sense of mystery into the reader, and keeps them wanting to read more. Which, as any good reader/writer would know, is the mark of a good author. The book starts off with a few awkward sentences, but this is slowly rectified as the book progresses, the writing greatly improves, as does the plot!

    Now, straight away, I knew that the book was fantasy, and it wasn't because of the label on Wattpad. I could tell by the way the author writes, and by the summary. The summary itself is interesting and engaging, and is likely to tempt a person to want to open the book and start reading.

    The writing style is very mature, straight away, you can see the writer has talent, despite the mistakes, but considering that this is a first draft, then I can't blame him/her. Fantasy is not usually a genre that I read, being more interested in romance, horror and teenage fiction, but as soon as I saw this book, it piqued my interest.

    Though it starts a bit quickly, the book is interesting and captivating and a lovely little read. I haven't read the whole thing yet, but I just had to type out this review. If you haven't already done so, then you should go check it out. It's amazing! The link is below!

    I rate it 7/10

  16. Mr CEO by Fabulous Doll




    Summary
    After catching her boyfriend of seven years in her bed with another woman, Annabelle has to start a new chapter again. This includes moving into a new home, getting a new image, losing weight and most of all getting a new job.

    Getting stuck in the elevator with a smoking, hot guy wasn't the plan and neither was wearing a low cut top but now she's landed herself in trouble when she realises that, the smoking, hot guy just happens to be the one who's interviewing her.

    "What do you have that no one else has, Miss Mavers?" He asks, huskily.

    "I'm dedicated and loyal," I replied shyly.

    "I think you have a lot more to offer than that," He stand up out of his chair and walks around the desk, lifting me up onto it.

     "Beautiful," his lips were on mine in an instant.

    What have I got myself in for?





    This book is written by Kieran Gump, AKA FabulousDoll on the book site, Wattpad. This piece of work has gotten crazy popular over the months, and to be honest, I can see why! The story starts out with the protagonist Annabelle being fired from her job by her mean and selfish boss, Ms Callahan. She then goes home to find her boyfriend of seven years cheating on her with as she puts it "some STI slut"

    As the chapters progress, we read on as she applies for job after job, and is turned down. You can really imagine the protagonists pain and identify with her. She has just been cheated on, and has lost her job, and I think Kieran shows this beautifully, as shows with his over 300,000 collective reads on this book alone!

    As the book progresses, we begin to see a bit more of Anna's background and her friendship with Casey, her best friend since childhood. I like how Kieran manages to inject a hint of humour, tangled with the romantic tone that the book holds, and at times, dare I say it? Sad.

    Though the book has a few mistakes, it is made up for in his writing ability, and his ability to capture an audience. I can easily imagine it sitting on bookshelves one day. I will warn you, it does contain some mature content, that is not suitable for younger readers, other than that. It really is a fantastic book, and if you like this sort of thing, then I'd highly recommend you check it out!

    I give this book a rating of 8/10.
