Pretty Good!

Personally, if I read a fantasy book, sirens and mermaids aren't really my cup of tea. Who would believe the little mermaid could be scary? But i was pleasantly surprised with this book! The mystery of the story is haunting and a little creepy! It never seemed to surprise me,...

Refreshing read!

This book kept me wondering what was going to happen from the very beginning! It's about time i read a book that wasn't the usual fairy tale stuff every one has begun to expect in this genre. I loved the strong female lead and how she grows throughout the story....

Best Book I Have EVER Read.

If I could read this book over and over again, I would never put it down. It sounds corny, but this book actually changed how I read books. My 8th grade English teacher gave it to me, thinking I would enjoy it; oh boy was he right! I ended up...

Great Book!!

This book was fantastic! The futuristic plot mixed with a murder mystery was pure genius! The characters felt like real people and came to life in the pages. Beth Revis expertly portrays human emotions. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story! The secrets of Godspeed kept me up at night wondering!...

Could Have been Better

I was interested in this book at first because of the plot; sounds pretty good doesn't it?? But quite honestly I was a little disappointed in it. There was so much that could have been done with this book, but it fell short. I think maybe a good squeal could...

Pretty good!

I enjoyed the mystery of this book a lot. Not very suspenseful but it leaves you wondering what happened and who is this strange guy really is. I liked the modern take on a story from Greek mythology.

Beautiful

This story is just amazing. It is beautifully written and goes into so much depth. Its a story about finding your voice, even if what you have to say is terrifying.

Must Read

This book was sooo good! The writing and plot were just as excellent as the first book. It goes much deeper than just telling a story, Beth Revis successfully portrays the character's emotions and human nature. I couldn't believe the secrets Amy and Elder discover and cannot wait...
