DNF this is a did not finish book for me guys I got about 40% in and I just can t read any The main characters are hard to relate to I found the world building incredibly slow and boring I wish I could ve liked this book enough to finish it especially because it had such an amazing synopsis But sadly it just wasn t for me

The Thorn and the Sinking Stone

The Thorn and the Sinking Stone Read & Download Þ 4 review The Thorn and the Sinking Stone Warring families Forbidden love And danger they can’t escapeDaggers Roses Cowboys Boat Men Survivors of Earth's Last War four “families” vie to rule the dreary streets of Rain City through violence and blood Valencia Hara Princess of the wealthy Black Roses is raised in warri. Our reality was this we were enemies caught in our parents war trapped in a desperate situation where desperate people did desperate things I wanted to trust him I wanted him to trust me But neither of us can do it blindly That was a surprise I didn t expect to love the book so so much After the last page of my eArc I was so ready to make a huge fandom for this book and I already asked the author if there s gonna be a seuel and thank the book gods that there will be because my FANGIRL HEART CAN T TAKE IT if there ll be nothing to follow that breathtaking ending I was drawn instantly from the first chapter I was intrigued and excited because the atmosphere of this book is unbelievable You can really FEEL everything that is happening in the book The pain the action the love you will be transported inside Sebastian and Valencia s world and you know what You ll love it Every moment of it Sebastian and Valencia are part of two different gangs that rules Rain City Yes people GANGS ROYALTY GANGS And they re rivals We re talking about black motorcycles daggers katanas and lots and lots of running and fighting See my favorite part of this book is the whole concept and the whole premise Its just ITS EPIC OKAY I don t remember being pumped by a book like this Valencia is all about taking revenge and proving to the other gang that they don t mess with roses Or the thorns as the daggers call them Valencia is a kickass I am absolutely impressed by this heroine and okay we need of this kind of heroine in YA Finally finally after so many years of hating them for what they d done to my father I d have a shot to show them what it meant to face the wrath of a true Thorn The girl is fierce and likeable I love that she has her head on her shoulders even when Sebastian is starting to get under her skin We all know it tends to go downhill when the romance starts to take over the book But the romance was well done We ll get to that later Now Sebastian Sebastian is a sad sad love interest Not the kind of sad that is irritating and annoying but the kind that you want to hug and hurt for I wanted time to stop I wanted everyone to understand how profound this loss was I was turning into stone A Dagger that is hurting and a Rose that is full of hate could it be epic The answer is yes because the romance is just intense Totally sweet and swoony but absolutely intense Romeo and Juliet kind of romance doesn t usually work for me but for Valencia and Sebastian I m so ready to cut somebody if the odds doesn t work in their favor Look at you You re beautiful and terrifying and how could God ever put someone like you on Earth for me to kill Some things that needs work in my opinion is giving information about Rain City their culture their history and some of the terms that are used But I have a feeling that everything will be improved and epic because of what happened in the ending It is true that this book has The Young Elites feel into it but I wouldn t say that they are the same There s a lot of different elements and comparing is just wrong anyway right One thing I wouldn t forget to mention is that the writing is terrific It s absolutely stunning I cannot believe this is a debut novel This series is absolutely to watch out for You people need to choose sides Are you a Dagger or a Rose Me I m wherever Bast and Vali will be This book is surely a 2015 favorite

review The Thorn and the Sinking Stone

The Thorn and the Sinking Stone Read & Download Þ 4 review The Thorn and the Sinking Stone Or ways with sharpened steel But she is no ordinary Rose She is Cursed tainted with the ability to see seconds into the futureTo avenge his father's death Sebastian Leold of the rival gang Two Daggers must face off against the Black Princess he with his dagger she with her katana s. 25 stars It was okay I bumped it up to 3 stars because it was the authors first novel Nice jobShort version An inventive world and an interesting concept washed down with a horrible plot terrible character attributes and dialogue and a forced love storyLong version First off I absolutely loved the concept of this story It reminded me of a gritty modern version of Romeo and Juliet meets The 100 in fact Valencia our main character here is strikingly similar to a character from The 100 Despite post apocalyptic worlds and their stories being a bit passe and overdone I liked what the author did here Some parts felt fresh However some parts also felt very familiar almost like rehashed version of some of the recent best sellers Where this book ultimately failed was the plot It was not only predictable but it was very poorly planned and filled with plot holes left and right It started off uite well and it was interesting enough to hold my attention well into the meat of the book but it fell apart uite uickly after that which is often the case with first time authors and their debut novels I m going by the goodreads author page if this is wrong let me know The characters weren t particularly strong either Valencia just like this book had potential but she was so lacking I really struggled to like her and empathize with her and her cause I almost didn t care Almost There were a few book saving moments it was the uiet points in the story that I really started to feel like there was a real character there that I cared about in her POV diatribes but those parts were few and far between the bike scenes were great The dialogue and to some degree even the writing wasn t very strong and there were times when I simply rolled my eyes because it felt way over the top like the author was trying to do and be than she was capable of This is not intended to be mean many first time authors make this mistake of trying to write better than they are capable of It s still good writing but it s painful to have to read 6 lines about Garrett smoking cigarettes That kind of detail is nice if it has to do with plot or character development but it was mostly just filler and that was frustrating As much as this tries to be a love story this is not a book you ll remember for it s romance or love there s no Bella and Edward here or much of anything to be honest Which is a shame because this book had tremendous potential but it ultimately fell flat and is easily forgettable I would encourage the author to continue because she seems like a good story teller who needs to work on a few things like plot development but having written her first book she ll no doubt have improved Great first effort and while I think there are great points to this book it s not a recommend from me as it was okay as per my scale

Dushinski DNF at 23%Reason #1 I’d known since I was a child that I was different from the other girls Why oh why do authors keep writing this kind of annoying cheap cliché and overused sentence? I prefer realizing by myself how ‘‘special’’ a heroine can be and not be told so because let’s face it that’s what the author meant to sayReason #2 At first I thought it was just the shock of seeing someone you knew as a child now as an adul
