PDF/EBOOK Eyes of the Woods
Level headed loyal and fierce to the core The book is not without its faults The first one is the romance Although I like Daniel well nough as a love interest for Eris the relationship feels a bit insta lovey I know that there were gaps when weeks have lapsed but it was a stretch for me to imagine what have transpired within those time period for feelings to have progressed so fast The second problem I had with this book was I wished there for feelings to have progressed so fast The second problem I had with this book was I wished there world building involved Everything seems so isolated that I wish we learned how this world came about on a larger scale I also wish we were given hints of the time period to have a better feel that way it wasn t so jarring when a kick ass heroine is suddenly subjected to a betrothal and she s helpless to stop it Overall I still think this was a solid debut novel and an above average uality compared to your run
of the mill self published books Typical too much hype for a the mill self published books Typical too much hype for a novel If the author didn t have a famous parent I doubt people would ven glance twice at it I was one of the many who was curious about Eden Fierce s writing considering who her mom isThe beginning was a bit confusing I felt that the characters were introduced too fast and there was a fair amount of info dump However since this is uite a short standalone novel it was a situation that couldn t been avoided The world Eden imagined was rich and the story could have been complex than it was There was nough
Material Here For A here for a Overall the characters lacked development and the pace felt too rushed Everything was tied too neatly at the ndThe MC was very likable and so was the hero despite the Twilight vibe I got from him and his stalking I don t think the concept was that original Okay the vampires didn t sparkle in the sun but I couldn t help but to see the similarities between the two booksEyes of the Woods might be too simple for me but I m certain it will appeal to a younger audience This is a true YA book so parents don t have to worry about xposing their kids to inappropriate content After Twilight vampires became THE THING to read when it came to Young Adult fiction and for a few years that was pretty much all I read I ve got an ntire bookshelf to prove it LOL but as most fads go after a while vampires became clich d and over done and I pretty much lost all interest in the topic I haven t picked up a vampire book in a couple of years and when I found out Eden Fierce had a debut novel coming out that was vampire ish I had a few reservations about it After all the buzz and looking into the storyline a little I found myself and interested in the bookOnce I got the book and started reading I realized something right off the bat This was NOTHING like Twlight Eris was an amazing main character that was not only loyal but xtreme. Hday her father would announce her betrothal A year later she would be forced to marryWhat Eris didn’t know was that the very beings she hunted were watching her and that being tamed wasn?. ,
Such a Uniue book and a really good debut novel I liked the romance and the way verything was xplained I liked Eris such a fierce and powerfull character with many talents and I love her protective family I only gave it four stars because I would
Have Liked A Longerliked a longer This book was asy to read and interesting nough to keep me going but once I finished it I was glad it was finally over The characters were bland and the story advanced too uickly making it hard to actually feel anything whenever something interesting happened so I nded up just reading for the sake of it instead of Eyes of the Woods was the most anticipated book of the summer for me and now having read it I truly was not prepared for it It blew me away I am completely amazed by Eden s talent at such a young age She was only 14 years old when she wrote the book and now 15 on the date of its release While I was reading I never got the sense of her youth Her writing is very mature and her imagination is fierce I was amazed by her use of vocabulary and descriptions Her words painted a gorgeous illustration in my mind There were several times when I had to stop and pause just to appreciate the profound beauty in one sentence Her writing is astounding There is so much talent revealed in her debut novel that we ve only been given a glimmer of I can t wait to see where her imagination takes her next and to read the beautiful words that I am sure will louently flow from it The story was ntertaining but the All Roads Lead Home ending was a bit absurd it would lead to another Fall Eris s family was convinced tooasily and vents came together too uickly but that seems to be the nature of YA books The story was very predictable Eris jumping into a ravine was also very unlikely considering her skill and intelligence I would have had her get injured in a plausible unlikely considering her skill and intelligence I would have had her get injured in a plausible The writing was better than some adult authors I think this storyline had a potential to be better than it turned out but it s a really good debut novel for a young author First of I would like to put it out there that I haven t read any of Jamie McGuire s books the polarizing reviews of her book Beautiful Disaster has kind of put me off picking it up However I was intrigued by her daughter s book because a It s a genre I ve been drawn to lately and b I was curious to see what a 15 year old could come up with I m happy to say that this book did not disappoint Even though vampires have been overused to death since Twilight Eden Fierce was able to treat us with a fresh take on vampires or in this case the nightwalkers My interest was definitely captured from the beginning to nd I think it helped that the writing flowed ffortlessly and pacing was just right I also loved the main protagonist Eris Helgren had a lot of admirable ualities she was. Eris Helgren knew her life was about to nd A daughter of the Priory a generations old family who protected their territories from nightwalkers Eris was strong and independent But on her birt.

Can T Put My Finger On Itt put my finger on it deep down I m old fashionedI was drawn to Eris right away She loved her family very much but didn t like some of the rules they had to follow But being a good daughter she was forced to go along with them until something happened that changed the course of her life She was then forced to make decisions that could change her ntire worldThe action was fantastic My nerves did get the better of me a few times I was so very curious to what happening I couldn t put it down There were a couple of sad parts that may be hard to read But as I thought about what these kids watch on TV or video games they would be used to things much worseAs the primary book chooser for my kids it is very refreshing to find a true Young Adult book Many YA books have sex and that is not needed or necessary in any YA books This is the transition time From kid books to teen books We shouldn t have to worry about warning our kids or blocking certain pages off You should be able to pick up a YA book and hand it to any 12 15 yr old without having to worry about them reading about sex This is a book I will be recommending to all of my fellow moms of tweensteens Jamie McGuire s daughter Nuff said This book has an awesome hook I mean the idea that she knows deep in her gut that on her wedding day she will die which can be interpreted in so many ways an. ?t what would kill her after all In a land where the woods were forbidden and the laws meant life Eris will have to make a decision that could bring peace between nemies or war among friends.
