    Kurzbeschreibung

    Kirkus Reviews says DESIRE is "The first book in a fantasy romance series featuring a heroine who must choose between two very different men and two very different destinies."

    5 out of 5 Stars - "Very sweet, lovely story about an eighteen year old girl Kama who lives in a perfect, settled future with a perfect boy, Liam, soon to be her future husband. However, her world turns upside down when an enchanting, desireable boy Torrid appears in her life" - Xandra, TV News Anchor at TV Zemst

    5 out of 5 Stars - "I haven't seen any Paranormal Dystopians before, so this book felt so refreshing and unique. I devoured this book entirely too quickly, and the sequel is not out when it should be :( (apologies for the whining, this book was really that good)" - Amy, The Bookmark

    5 out of 5 Stars - "I know I say this alot but WOW. Desire was so much more than the dystopian YA romance...A must read that all YA fans will love." - Laura, YA Indie Princess

    5 out of 5 Stars - "When I picked up desire I was expecting the usual dystopian fare but what I got instead was an intriquing world that immediately fascinated me!" - Kristi, Book Faery

    Von Bernstein
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
    If it were possible I would award this novel no stars, but ten lavishly decorated cupcakes with lavender icing instead. At least it is certainly nice to know, that in 998 years from now (3010) people still are driving around in Porsches, drink cherry soda and coffee, eat burgers, pizza and spaghetti. The novel could not weave its magic for me. It lacks a "degree of reality" (which even the coffee couldn't re-introduce, quite the contrary). The often pompous and deliberately old-fashioned language cannot gloss over what the author lacks in skill to describe real people, real emotions and feelings. Kailin Gow and fans: Please forgive me, but I consider this book a waste of time and money.

    2.0 von 5 Sternen Why did I waste my money? 5. Januar 2012
    Von Joni - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
    I read Desire based on all of the great reviews, and also, because I've been really into dystopian books lately. I've read the Hunger Games, Divergent, and Delirium all recently, and maybe that's why this one was such a disappointment for me. It just can't compare to those awesome books.

    The premise of Desire caught my interest; it's pretty similar to the book Matched, but had a magical aspect that set it apart. My biggest complaint is the writing. The dialogue was contrived and unnatural, and so were the scenarios. It just didn't flow well at all. And it was very cliched. How many times do I have to read about a beautiful girl who has two gorgeous guys fight over her? It's so overdone and isn't interesting anymore.

    My other problem with Desire was the big secret about Kama. I won't give anything away, but it was so ridicules, I couldn't help but laugh. It's like finding out that Edward from Twilight isn't a vampire but a leprechaun. I did finish Desire, so it wasn't completely terrible, but I wish I wouldn't have wasted my money.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyed the cutting edge originality 30. November 2012
    Von Wine Expert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Taschenbuch
    Found this quite enjoyable and easy to read I was initially turned off because of the reviews so I borrowed it from my friend instead of purchasing it I getting more and more convinced that the haters who post 1 star reviews are often competing authors who attack the fellow authorsbjust to get a competitive edge. Real reviewers are free to speak their minds but spite is wrong. I enjoyed reading this book and found it clever and suspenseful but thats my opinion.

    1.0 von 5 Sternen Poor Reading for Young Women 22. Juli 2012
    Von Nina Veron - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Lovers of teen fiction, dystopian fiction, fantasy, etc: you can do SO MUCH BETTER!

    The description of the book and bio of the author, Kailin Gow, suggests that this is a good choice of a novel for tween girls. As a university writing instructor who also tutors girls in their early teens, and as a reader and fan of young adult fiction, I have to say that this is a really deceptive way to present the novel. It might be entertaining, but it is seriously *terribly* written. I don't mean that it's not going to win a Pulitzer; I mean that it is riddled with actual errors that would get it a low grade in any decent English class. Girls in their early teens who are developing their own writing skills will be poorly served by this kind of example of "publishable" writing. It is clearly not professionally edited. I haven't looked into the background of the publisher, but I wouldn't be surprised if the novel were published by the author's own media company, and/or that the positive reviews come from her friends or some particular fan base.

    If you want to read what is maybe the most hilariously bad novel I've ever seen in print, then go ahead? But if you actually want something fun to read, please read *anything* else, there are so many real and well-written (or at least grammatically correct!) teen novels out there!

    Update: Okay, so to put some of this in perspective: Gow is a Founder and Managing Director of Sparklesoup, the publisher (at least according to some googled info). So I guess she is pretty much publishing her own books? Furthermore, a number of the five star reviewers have only rated a handful of books on Amazon, most or all of them by Gow. I honestly think the whole rating system for this book has been rigged, which is really not in the spirit of Amazon's rating system. All in all, not cool.

    4.0 von 5 Sternen This Series IS Worth Reading! 18. Oktober 2012
    Von Dina Kmett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I read this book and the next ones in the series and I Very much enjoyed it. A very unique tale that just kept getting better every book. I read ALOT and have read most of Kailin's books in the last year and Ive yet to come across a book of hers that I disliked. Since I got my Kindle last year, Ive found many new authors to love and she's in my top 5. Ive always been an avid reader with a wide variety of interests. Her books delight me and immerse me into wonderful and unique worlds with every series. If and when a book has editing errors, I find it totally unfair for people to give the book bad ratings over and over, moaning and groaning. Alerting the author and perhaps readers a few times,ok. Hopefully it will get fixed.But dont keep lowering the star rating, thus having people turn away and not give a good book a chance. And this IS a good book! Reading the next ones and having more explained with much more happening, shows what a great series I believe this to be. & after reading about 400+ books since May 2011, believe me, Ive read the good and the bad. Keep up the great work Kailin! You've impressed the hell out of me! Can't wait for the next books in many of your serieses, esp the You & Me series. You truely are The Author to keep an eye on! Thx for all the great adventures and worlds you have brought to us.
