The storyline was overtaken by her relentless, preachy message of faith healing. Found it to be very obnoxious and atypical of her previous books.
Guess she’s recently found Jesus and while I’m happy for her newfound religious beliefs, I don’t care to be hammered over the head with them. The book read more as a YA Christian novel, not what I was ex First time book review due to how disappointed I am in this author’s new direction.
The book read more as a YA Christian novel, not what I was expecting to spend my money on. Also, there were too many different, brief, future storylines being set up.
The writing felt very choppy and immature. Will not be purchasing any of her other books after this disaster. Sad to say I scanned through the vast majority of this book hoping it would get better, it didn’t.
Her need to preach her personal belief system ruined what could have been a great storyline. I liked the premise, as well as the message. Here is where I was so crestfallen: If I could say something to the author, I would say this, “you set these expectations of your readers, and you are the one who labels your books adult, when you write a book as being part of an adult series, but you write it for Tween I liked the premise, as well as the message. If I could say something to the author, I would say this, “you set these expectations of your readers, and you are the one who labels your books adult, when you write a book as being part of an adult series, but you write it for Tweens, and disappoint your fan base, because the expectations YOU set are not met, what do you think the reaction to be?
If I want a biblical lesson I’ll go to church, I read your books for romance and hot sex scenes that I know I won’t get until I allow whoever I allow to go that far with me to get some, in the mean time you, Kresley Cole, Nalini Singh, among others are my go to gals, you let me down, and you can think all you want that you shouldn’t have to use sex to sell, but that’s what you’ve used thus far, those are the bars that YOU have set, just tell me now if this is the direction you are choosing to go for your future books, if so, I can make an informed decision as to whether I want to purchase your novels any longer.
I am a woman, and I am a sexual being, just like any other woman brave enough to admit their needs, if instead of watching porn or buying toys, I read books that bring my sense of romance alive and allow me to live in a world where a male is strong, virulent, and honorable, as well as sexy, then call me crazy for wanting to claim that short amount of time where I get to imagine being the heroine that get ravished by a man who focused on her as if there is no other female in existence, because I know that while I may eventually find it here in reality, it doesn’t hurt for my homie, Gena Shiwalter, to find a hero to sweep me off my feet for just a short amount of time.
And that as they say is that. Unfortunately, I did not have fun with Beauty Awakened — in fact, it made me angry — and I abandoned the book partway through. The setup is that Koldo, a physically and emotionally scarred dark-angel type, and Nicola, a self-sacrificing young woman with a heart condition and a dying twin sister, meet and eventually fall in love.
At one point, he performs a miraculous task and Nicola asks him what he is, to have this ability. He berates her for not doing research. The woman is working two jobs and her sister is in the hospital! She explains, but he keeps lecturing her about priorities and excuses.
I also had issues with the metaphysical setup. I had heard there was a strong Christian bent to Beauty Awakened and was prepared for it. But what I found was not the Christianity I know, but a yucky victim-blamey Law of Attraction sort of thing where people cause their own illnesses by thinking negative thoughts. Malaikat murung, penyendiri dan tak bersayap.
Terlahir bukan karena cinta, memendam luka batin karena teraniaya kedua orang tuanya yang saling membenci. Aku mengalami cinta pandangan pertama pada gambaran tentang Koldo di buku pertama.
Bahkan pasukan malaikat Zach juga mengucilkan Koldo karena perbedaan lahirnya dan sifatnya yang misterius. Gambaran hidup masa kecilnya bagaikan cerminan kisah hidup Vishous BDB. Dan aku berharap yang kisah yang terindah dan paling gna baper untuk malaika Koldo.
Dan aku berharap yang kisah yang terindah dan paling bikin baper untuk malaikat antik yg satu ini. Yang aku harapkan tak terwujud di buku ini. Gena menjawab doaku awakenes meminta buku pnr gnea menyentuh dan emosional, dengan buku religi dengan taburan scene paranorm. Nicola, calon mate Koldo adalah pasien sekarat yang menghitung hari. Dan romance mereka terbangun dari kebersamaan mereka di saat-saat terakhir Nicola untuk kembali ke jalan Tuhan.
Kalau buku pertama sudah terasa flat, lambat dan membosankan? Kalikan dua untuk buku ini.
Banter Koldo dan Nicola tak kalah menyejukan dengan sesi siraman rohani. Aksi steamy mereka antara ada dan tiada, aku menunggu sex panas nakal ala Gena dengan sia-sia. Scene itu dituliskan singkat dalam bahasa puisi penuh metafora. Aku sampai tak yakin mereka mencapai tahap apa dan melibatkan anggota tubuh yang mana.
Scene epik ini selesai dalam dua alinea paling membingungkan dalam sejarahku membaca buku Gena. Kemunculan Axell yang mirip dengan William menimbulkan banyak skenario dalam otakku.
Kemunculan figuran para LOTU juga membantu menyelamatkan suasana. Joke-joke dari mereka jelas jadi CPR dan nafas buatan untuk buku ini. Aku berharap Gena lebih kreatif. Aku menemukan banyak idiom dari sitkom2 populer di TV bahkan beberapa scene dari buku paranom lain.
So, lap keringat dingin aku masih berharap untuk next book. Please Gena, buku Thane si manwhore yang demen slepet-slepet, musti bagus ya. I know it’s only my opinion, but I have no idea how anyone could find this book sexy, or interesting, hard to put down or another wonder from G.
I’ve read the 5 star reviews and I must say: I found it boring! Oh there was violence all right, and some storyline, but it failed to engage me. I found it very easy to put the book down. Actually, I did it few times only to pick it up later for the sole purpose of finishing because I’d started. I mean the story in itself is nothing special, pre I know it’s only my opinion, but I have no idea how anyone could find this book sexy, or interesting, hard to put down or another wonder from G.
I mean the story in itself is nothing special, predictable if you please The love story – what love story??? There was no chemistry between main characters, nothing that would scream: Even though it could appear they moved slow in intimate relationship everything else felt too fast, too shoved.
In a way it resembled a speed dating, where the couple would just state things about themselves as quickly as possible just so they can say they know each other. And half of those things Koldo and Nicola found out from outside sources. Time scattered throughout maybe a week, the hours they spent together could be counted on one hand fingers probably and then suddenly: I want to wed you! The scenes that should have moved me, left me cold.
