Gemini of Emreiana
Author: Kristen DaRay
My entire life has been a lie: My parents didn't die in a car accident. They're not even dead. I'm not American. I'm not even human. I have strange powers, and I'm the heir to the throne of the planet Emreiana.
If I take the crown, I have to leave behind everything I have known here on Earth. I would have to say goodbye to my friends and leave behind Kyle, the boy I've loved since I was five. If I don't, then I risk the Bremoir finding me here on Earth and destroying everything I love.
First as always thank you Kristen DaRay for allowing me the privilege of reading and thank you Girls Heart Books for allowing me to participate. Secondly I have to apologize as this review is going to be kind of short as I am also in the middle of fast drafting. ^_^ With that being said I’m going to jump right into the meat and potatoes of this.
This book is an awesome read. The environments are so vivid and realistic yet original and (in special circumstances that I’m not going to spoil) believable without question. The author does a fantastic job of making the reader believe they are present in the book.
The characters are also well thought out and well developed. As a reader sometimes it’s hard to find the connecting point to be able to empathize with the character but that issue is not present here. Every character has their quirks and they were just as real as the environment they moved through.
The story is pretty fast paced. I – at least – could not put it down. Each scene leads into the next in a constant flow that it makes it impossible to say to self – just one more chapter. There are a couple of missing factors that I’m sure will be clarified in editions to come but otherwise there were no confounding moments or huge plot holes to drive a reader mad.
