I have read " Zeva-Book 1 by Tesha Finley. It has a very light science fiction element and some fantasy elements. Although the plot was a bit predictable, I enjoyed it. The story moved at a reasonable pace,and I never got bored at any point of time. It wasn't well edited, though. I noticed quite a few grammatical errors. I would recommend this read to YA.
I think that I will choose another book for this month, but Steampunk this time. I love Steampunk!
Okay, so I have officially finished this one, and I'm afraid it was a bit disappointing. You're right, it had very light science fiction (an alien race called Zevian here to protect Earth). However, I don't think the author fully explored how were the Zevians protecting Earth, except in time of war. For instance, why were Tristan and his dad stationed on Earth for a year?
The young love would probably appeal to YA, but as I have said before the back-and-forth of wanting to be together and couldn't be together, just to end up together was too annoying for me
. However, with the editing issues, I'm not sure if this would be the best example of good literature for younger people to be exposed to.
The plot was easy to follow, but more-or-less predictable. I think the book could have been 100-150 pages shorter and the story would still be the same. I also thought its message to young girls about relationships left a stale taste in my mouth.
With that being, I gave the book a 1 out of 4 stars
. Oh well, here's hoping my next read will be better!
