Kurzbeschreibung

Mary Margaret is not the type of girl to fall in love - especially after seeing what a string of bad relationships has done to her mother. That's why it's so weird when Mary finds herself strangely attracted to Kelson, a guy at her new school. It's almost . . . unnatural. What she doesn't know is that she's been put under a spell. And when Kelson kidnaps Mary's mother and takes her to his home world, Mary will have to rescue her by relying on something she never knew existed - magic. Flecks of Gold is an enchanting blend of fantasy, action, and even a little romance. Get lost in this world where magic is commonplace and danger lurks where you least suspect it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great YA fantasy 17. Oktober 2010

Flecks of Gold was a great read, highly entertaining. While this is the author's first book, it caught me right from the get-go, and held my interest throughout. I loved the attention to detail, particularly in giving the reader a feel for the world itself and its customs. I appreciated the fact that, despite the shortcuts magic can produce in this world, Mary still has to work to figure things out and think through solutions. I loved the romance aspect of it as well, and admired that the heroine actually had real willpower. Although the story ended satisfactorily, I think there is clearly room for a sequel, should Ms. Buck choose to write one. Sequel or not though, I am definitely keeping an eye out for anything else she writes in the future.

My daughter and I really enjoyed this book! It was a great read, and showed great writing style. Alicia has created an innovative storyline, which snagged us both into her story from the get go. We both hope there is another book in the series. Keep writing, Alicia! We love your imagination.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Refreshing Read 16. Februar 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I read this book after reading a review by theliteratemother.org. While I thoroughly enjoyed the engaging plot, character development and writing style, what I found most refreshing was that this book is one I could recommend to anyone without reservation. There is nothing morally objectionable in this book. The heroine in the story blunders her way from one mess to another yet is full of spunk and good character. She has the insecurities and fears we all have, yet she is also full of the courage and determination we all admire. I would love to see a sequel to this book. It was a great read that I couldn't put down. Thank you Alicia Buck. Well done!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lovingly engaging 26. November 2010
Von AKS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have given this book a 5-star as a reply to a comment from an earlier review, but it deserves its own review from me as well.

I bought this book from Barnes and Noble this summer after seeing the pretty front cover and reading the description on the back, and I was glad that I did.

Mary's father disappeared before she was born, and Mary's mother cycled through relationships like changing TV channels because all her boyfriends always ended up being abusive and threatening. After moving to a new town Mary found herself unnaturally attracted to Kelson, and when Kelson kidnapped her mother and vanished into the light, Mary had no choice but to pursue and plunged into a new world.

In this new alien world, everything was different. It was a desert planet with scorching sun and very technologically behind. It had no cars, no phones, no TV, and no electronic at all. Even paper and pen were a scarcity. Most importantly, Mary couldn't understand anything anyone said.

Mary overcame the language barrier through "lacing," which was a magical ability possessed by certain group of people, and was described as manipulating DNA sequence and molecule structures. In order to find her mother, Mary was suggested by a retired magician to seek help from the king in the King's city. On her way to the city, Mary was attacked and saved by Breeohan and together they traveled to the city and seek the king.

The writing was fluent, the plot was engaging, and the dialogue was witty and humorous. I especially like how magic was being handled. It doesn't take for granted that people just possess these magical powers magically but explains the "how" as well. Through Mary's POV, you can see the vivid landscape, feel her emotions, understand her decisions, and relate to her focus. There was a hint of romance but not enough to taint her goal. Although the ending is somewhat predictable, it is satisfying with a speck of surprise and definitely leaves room for a sequel.

Keep writing, Alicia. I would love to "see" what happens to the characters after they were settled into their new roles, and experience their new adventure.
2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing 24. Mai 2012
Von mg4 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
1.5 stars. At the beginning of the story, I was relieved that the main character, Mary, was not cookie-cutter perfect. I liked that she said dumb things and made dumb mistakes.

However, Mary became infuriating to me. Her sarcasm was so thick to the point of rudeness, she lacked any and all communication skills, she whined constantly, and she never ceased to do dumb things. Furthermore, I can't stand heroines who have the attitude of "I don't need any help, I can handle it myself" (so many conflicts would have been avoided if she had ditched this kind of attitude). And I am sick of heroines in novels always "saving the day" and the men in their lives bowing down to them while they reign superior in the end, as was the case in this book.

As far as the plot goes, it was just ok. There was nothing very interesting or exciting about this book that sets it apart from others. The execution was very poor. And I'm not a big fan of the idea that any conflict or problem can be solved with the use of magic.
