I have no connection to any publishing house so it’s always an adventure to find blog tour hosts or authors who are willing to give me an e-copy of the book in exchange of an honest review. As I joined twitter last month, I came across Narah Quinn, the author of Fallons Hope and she is kind enough to let me read her masterpiece.
Fallons Hope is a place where the protagonists resides. It is about the three sisters whose existence is all about keeping the balance between worlds. As the story progresses, they met unexpected people and that’s how the problems arises. Is it a curse or a blessing?
First off, I want to extend my deepest gratitude to Narah Quinn. Thank you for letting me discover a wonderful book. Thank you for being so kind and I enjoyed every email I exchanged with you.
Part 1: SPOILER FREE REVIEW
To be honest, I have no idea about this book even the characters, I also have no expectations about this book. At first, the cover didn’t appeal to me as much but when I started reading the first sentence, that’s when I knew that I will love this book.
I love how she narrated the story. It gives me this familiar feeling like a friend is telling me her story. She is a very effective writer. The scenes and characters are well explained. I also like the multiple POVs but one thing that I noticed is that during the change of POVs, I do not find extinguishable differences between characters. It was as if it was told by the same person all over. I wish there would be noticeable angst, like Joe could be like more cocky and more sure of himself while narrating. Well I get that the scenes don’t require him to be, but I don’t mind some humour. Or maybe Lara could be more girly and Ava could be more calm and level headed. Well, that’s some of my thoughts. Nevertheless, the narration is really good specially the transition from one scene to another.
This book is also a perfect balance of romance and fantasy. I have read books about faes, demigods, vampires,witches etc. But this is my first time reading a book with all these creatures as characters. In every chapter the book introduces new character species (?), good thing I have a background with those so its easy for me to understand what they are. But I think even tho you don’t have an idea what they are, it’s actually explained in the book briefly.
Plot-wise, I really loved it. It tells stories about love, family, and loving one self. This is good as a stand alone but I would appreciate if it’ll be a series.
(skip this if you haven’t read the book and just hop on to my conclusion)
Part 2: IN DEPTH WITH THE STORY (some things I wished it happened in the book)
A) As the three sisters who are responsible in keeping the balance amongst creatures, I wish there will be more side story of how they actually keep the balance. I wish there will be more action and adventure.
B) Elijah, being a demigod, is a really big problem. I wish there will be more instances that he causes more problem than being just a threat to power.
C) I am not quite satisfied with the villains, I wish there will be a more solid force than just group of vampires opposing them. I will appreciate it if there is one single villain.
Overall, I love this book. This is probably the first ever review copy that I love to bits. This is the kind of book I love. I rate this 4.5/5 stars just because I wanted more. I know this has a potential to turn into a series someday.
