Metamorphosis by Devon Ashley EARLY REVIEW+GIVEAWAY

Metamorphosis by Devon Ashley (The Immortal Archives #2)

won from Devon Ashley

Synopsis from Goodreads

Change is not always a good thing...

Some survived the battle – but not without a price. As one heart starts up again, another dies down. The pure vampires learn their immortality isn't as strong as they'd thought – the status of their hearts determines their vulnerability. And when the truth gets out, a betrayal by one of their own will cost more lives.

US release: 15/11/2011

I really wanted to like this book just as much as the first one, but it didn't work out for me. It was just all over the place.

This series is very original and fresh, but I feel like it needs more focus. The plot was going from one thing to another in a blink of an eye. There was no basis, no groundwork for certain actions and it was like I was missing some bits of info to give me a fuller picture of events.

I think, up until Noel and Abby's journey everything was going really well. The training and conversations were really interesting. Then we started getting confusing behaviour from all the parties, villains out of the magician's hat, and lack of world-building...

The end of the novel was like scrambled eggs. Tasty but hell of a mess to look at :) 

I do like the ideas of this series, but they are not properly developed yet. I hope the book #3 will change that.

В общем то, несмотря на интересные идеи этой серии Бессмертных Архивов, идеи так и остались идеями, необработанными и недоделанными. А очень жаль, так как серия могла превратиться в конфетку.

Я читала книгу нормально до тех пор пока Ноэль  и Абби не отправились в своё путешествие, и вот тогда у меня начались проблемы с повествованием. Много роялей в кустах, необъяснимого поведения и пробежки по верхам вместо прямолинейной череды событий.

Надеюсь, что третья книга всё это исправит, но особо слюни не распускаю.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
