This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Years ago, everything changed. Phantoms, massive beasts of nightmare, began terrorizing the world. At the same time four girls, the Effigies, appeared, each with the unique power to control a classical element. Since then, they have protected the world from mission the Phantoms. At the death of one Effigy, another is chosen, pulled from her normal life into the never-ending battle. When maia unexpectedly becomes the next Fire Effigy, she resists her new calling. A quiet girl with few friends and almost no family, she was much happier to admire the Effigies from afar. Never did she imagine having to master her ability to control fire, to protect innocent citizens from the Phantoms, or to try bringing together the other three effigies. But with the arrival of the mysterious saul—a man who seems to be able to control the Phantoms using the same cosmic power previously only granted to four girls at a time—maia and the other Effigies must learn to work together in a world where. But the secrets saul has, and the power he possesses, might be more than even they can handle.
I dont feel like we got that from just witnessing Lilys pov. The story would have been even more compelling. Overall, this book totally rocked my world and i am glad I picked. It was exactly what I was looking for and the storyline was fun and excited. I adored the dialogue and the characters and thankful for the humor thrown. Fate of Flames by, sarah raughley, series: Effigies, 1, published by, simon Pulse on november biography 22nd 2016. Genres: young Adult, fantasy, pages: 368, format: Hardcover, source: Publisher, buy on Amazon, rating: I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Lilys relationship with her friend was also a joy to read, because i loved how it prevailed in salon the end and how close to two girls really are. The one thing I did not understand was the need for the mean girl stereotype. I get it, they do exist, but I felt like west could have gone away with maybe a little less. It bothered me that she kept getting away with it, meanwhile in one scene lily gets in trouble for the other girls actions. I loved this book and its characters so much I found myself saying aww a lot, it has been just so stinking cute, i never wanted professional it to end. I also really wished we got the other pov. I would have loved the boys side of the story as well. I felt like he revealed a lot of layers of himself to lily and it kind of made me want to know more about him.
I loved that they could use words on paper to express a different part of each other, especially since lily feels like she is more awkward in person. I dont think it was meant to be a secret as to who the boy that she was writing. Even though Lily isnt aware of who her pen pal is for a while, the readers catch up on what is happening fairly quickly. What we do witness is how writing, interesting and music peals away layers and builds a strong relationship at a deeper level. This entire book had such a positive vibe. I loved that even though Lily has a big family that drive her crazy at times, that they provide such a great support network. I adored that the parents were so awesome and not evil like some young adult books paint them. There was no absent parent, no tantrum over not understanding, just positive, healthy relationship that tugged on my heart strings.

Lily realizes shes kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart cant always be spelled out. I really wanted another book that would engross me and force me to pull an all-nighter and I got just that with. West was a new to me author, but I have heard some really amazing things from blogger friends about her, so i wasnt afraid to throw myself fully into the book from the start. What I got was an adorable, fluffy, heart fluttering, young adult novel about two very unlikely teens who become pen pals through shared interest and the boredom and chemistry class.
It was super sweet. Lily was so awkward and her humor amused me throughout the book. I found her to be someone i could relate to from my days in high school.(and not just with that fact that she has my name yall) When Lily writes the lyrics of her favorite song, in pencil, on her chemistry desk she never expected. Nor did stage she expect to start exchanging letters with this anonymous teen. I enjoyed reading the exchange and how to letters started about music and eventually, with words, the two hit much more meaningful subjects that hit close to home and expose different layers of themselves.

Which is much harder than it should. I loved this book the most so far. Tory and the boys are such great characters and this book was so well thought out. I didnt find any holes or inconstancies shredder with the story. This a really fun series that I believe all lovers of science fiction and fantasy will love. It was a very fast read even though it has almost 450 pages. And I cant not express enough for this author to keep writing this series. As it would be sad to see. I really cant wait for book.

A great review of Exposure has been posted to night Owl teen as a top Pick review: I was so happy to be able to review Exposure. With the ending of book three, code, i was dying to read the next one. I am a huge fan of reichs and have enjoyed everything she has written. I am very pleased to announce that book four of the virals series doesnt disappoint. In this one tory and her friends Ben, Shelton, hi, and of course her dog get in all kinds of mischief. In Exposure the virals are still adjusting to their powers. It has only been a few months since they were infected with that strain of parvovirus. Tory is attracting more male attention while the boys have the same effect with the females. And as Virals are being kidnapped Tory and her friends try to figure out guaranteed what is going on while staying under the radar.
