BRILLIANT BOOK TO READ AND ITbook to ead and it uniue The characters were very well developed and the story was great I liked Ari s character although being disabled she never let that get to her she was strong and courageousThe book itself she never let that get to her she was strong and courageousThe book itself a mix of myth fantasy paranormal action twists omance and so much I was grippingI cannot wait for book 2 to come out Of Gaea starts out just like any other book with a teenage girl for the main character There is one difference Ari the main character of this book is in wheelchair and very much hating this factAside from Ari s bitterness and deprecation of her situation I think she s an outstanding ole model for children who like herself are disabled even if that disability is different from Ari sLike most people in high school Ari has a bully Damia the girl who is the eason behind Ari s current situation Couple that with Damia s apparent obsession with Ari s best friend and hotty Sasha and it s a disturbing outcomeA lot of people may have some trouble with the names Though they aren t too hard to pronounce even if the spelling throws you offLyris is fun character I can almost picture the fun Victoria had in creating her uniue brand of crazy She will definitely throw the eader for a loop or twoAs things start to piece themselves together for Ari you can sense the inner struggle she deals with People who she s trusted her entire life she s unsure of whether or not she can still trust them That s something every eader can elate toGhita eminds me of my grandparents always pushing their beliefs on me when it wasn t the path destined for me I felt every shred of hurt from Ari as Ghita tried again and again to force hers on AriI am very impressed with this author s knowledge of Gaea and the Pagan ways She s got our ways down to a tee which is a arity though I suspect you may have pagan blood in her veins if she doesn t openly practiceThis book is not only a fascinating fictional ead it s also a great way to gain some inside into Her choice will change the world She hated the wheelchair Hated the way it made her feel less than what she was Most of all she hated not being able to do all the things she used to Ari had been a track and field star an archery champion and an Eskrima pro Now she was confined to a wheelchair slowly dying inside from its estraintsMedical science wasn’. ,

PATH OF FINDING WHO SHE REALLYof finding who she eally and where she comes from Her life and the people she loved are not all what they appear to beI haven t ead much on Greek mythology but I didn t have any trouble following along when something popped up in the book Things are explained throughout the book The story is written in third person and mostly follows Ari the main character Ari is a likeable character that has strengths and weaknesses physical and other that makes her ealistic and elatable The eader is strapped on for an adventure as Ari discovers the truth about her family and what is coming in the future She has choices to make that not only affect her both the world as well Most characters fall under I ll say it like this pure tainted and balanced Although these characteristics hinder some of their multi dimensionalness yes I made that word up it does not take away from the story and it s not always so black and white The plot moved along well At the beginning the eader knows something is going on than meets the eye but the information is discovered as Ari finds out There were also a few surprises mixed along the way The good parts The plot kept my interest and I enjoyed the character Ari There s was just enough action and information given as needed in the scenesThe bad parts The point of view would switch without notice and I would find myself stopping to think Wait This isn t Ari any She wouldn t say she Oh it s Sasha Perhaps in the next book there could be a line break between the change of views ather than normal paragraphs Overall it was a great ead I found myself at the end with just a pinch full of pages thinking how is she going to finish this book up It better not be a cliffhanger during a climax that leads to the next I hate that Seriously a book should be finished and not left off no matter if it is part of a series But it wasn t If you like fantasy book especially with a little Greek mythology then you should try this book This book begins in a ather strange manner The first line in the book stated Ari s problems began with the orgasm incident From that strange opening began the story which kept me turning the pagesWhat happens in the story is a strange and twisting tale Ari begins the book in a wheelchair I won t go into any details other than to say that this book takes some twists and turns you will not see coming It will make you laugh and cry and scream outIn her debut novel Victoria Escobar created a world very much like our own But with a uniue blend of eality fantasy and eligion I enjoyed the twists and turns and the path this book took to the finaleI give this book 5 stars and I am sure we will see much from this stars and I am sure we will see much from this authorDetailsDisclaimer Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest eview The free book held no determination on my personal eview What I liked I loved the setting. T working The tests the drugs the therapies were all useless and a waste of time She was tired of wasting her time; she was tired of failure It was time to look away from the obvious and try something unconventional Nothing was ever free and that included miracles Abruptly Ari finds herself tangled in a web of lies uestioning everything she’s ever know. .
Of the story and the way everything came together by the end Ari is a strong character who has to overcome very bad odds after an accident that leaves her in a wheelchair though it takes a while to figure out what that accident was There s always interesting twist to the story characters who are not who they say they are or characters who we had no idea about The dream aspects were eally interesting as well and the action was done fantastically in such a compelling way that I ead it from beginning to end almost without pause in five hours Everything
