1.0 von 5 Sternen Kein Fantasy/Romantik Buch: ein Albtraum!! 26. April 2013
Von <3
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Eigentlich mag ich es nicht, negative Rezensionen zu schreiben, aber zu diesem Buch muss was gesagt werden.

1. Die Handlung ist etwas undurchsichtig, und scheint nicht wirklich geplant gewesen zu sein, sondern einfach Kapitel an Kapitel geschrieben, ohne auf ein Ziel hinzuarbeiten.

Es geht um Kaitlyn, die herausfindet, dass sie eine Gaia ist, dass ist jemand, der die Elemente kontrollieren kann, und Kait ist auch noch außerordentlich stark. Die Idee fand ich super. Aber eben auch nur die Idee.
Kaitlyn wird entführt und zwar von einer Organisation, die die Welt retten möchte (indem sie Mädchen entführt und markiert als wären sie Vieh??)
Naja, dann kommt dieser heiße Typ, Micah, und Funken sprühen. Ab da geht jeder Sinn flöten, man liest weiter und weiter, hoffend, dass man es am Ende alles erklärt kriegt, denn jetzt kommt der Knaller: Da ist noch ein 'heißer' Typ, aber der ist gestört und jeder weiß es! Er droht Kaitlyn die ganze Zeit, belästigt alle weiblichen Charaktere, und alle ignorieren es!!

Tja, bis er Kait entführt und VERGEWALTIGT. OFT. SEHR SEHR OFT.

Keinerlei Sinn mehr, bis auf das Vergewaltigen, und wer jetzt - wie ich - auf einen Themawechsel, nämlich wie man mit Vergewaltigung umgeht, hoffte, hat sich geschnitten. Kait entkommt, aber irgendwie weiß man nicht wie, und es ist alles verdreht und gestört, man schließt das Buch mit einem schrecklichen Gefühl ab.

Also:
ein zeitweise wiklich widerliches und gestörtes Buch
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!NICHT KAUFEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Nothing Says 'Eco' Like a Whole Lot of Rape 15. August 2012
Von Kathryn Hogan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The Good

I found the premise of someone being able to control elements really, really cool. It's part of what kept me reading until the end.

The initial romance between Micah and Kaitlyn is pretty steamy, and pretty nice. I wanted to find out what happened, and I especially wanted to understand Micah's motivations for screwing it up so badly.

A lot of the prose is really lovely, and the descriptions are lucid. For much of the book, I found myself whisked away to the various exotic locales being described.

The Bad

I hoped to see a new perspective or learn something about the eco-movement or environmentalism, given the eco-fiction thing. No such luck. There were short episodes about composting, recycling water, and saving plankton... but they were not what drove the story.

Instead, I was constantly confused. It felt like I had missed a page, somewhere, in which everything was actually EXPLAINED - if not to me, then at least to the main character. Kaitlyn gets kidnapped, given magical powers, and is initiated into a secret organization without anyone ever sitting her down and saying exactly what it is they want from her, what it is this organization does, what it's rules are, etc. Because of that, there are multiple misunderstandings, without which (conveniently for the author) the plot would not exist.

There was a whole lot of rape. This could have been an interesting opportunity to talk about rape... and perhaps in the sequel, that will be explored. As it stands, I was CRINGING for about 1/6 of the book. I mean, there was a lot of extreme detail, very disturbing psychological games, etc. I didn't expect to be reading a psychological horror when I picked up an "eco-fiction".

The characters were confusing, and poorly developed. I didn't know how old anyone was, for example. Without the big plot holes that kept the story going, the characters may have been able to get along, and there may not have BEEN a plot.

The one exception was the crazy bad guy character. He was cliched, but at least I knew where he was coming from.

He threatens and attacks Kaitlyn right from the start, but for some reason, no one takes his violence seriously. In fact, he is protected by his community. He also sexually harasses the only other female character NON-STOP, and the other characters all laugh it off. Haha! Boys will be boys! That is, of course, until he makes good on his threats, kidnaps Kaitlyn, and rapes for her like a million pages in excruciating detail.

Kaitlyn was a disappointing protagonist. She made a lot of jokes all the time, indicating that the author has a great sense of humour. But that was Kaitlyn's only personality trait, other than making a mess out of things because she doesn't have enough information because of gaping plot holes. She landed herself in all sorts of sticky situations, and is saved every time by Micah.

Overall, this was a disappointing read.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Truly Bad, Bad, Bad 24. Januar 2013
Von E A Phillips - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Supernatural Eco-warriors: we'll clean up the oceans then we'll rape and murder you.

Set aside the convoluted, confused and ultimately pointless plot. Forget the flat dialog and two-dimensional characters (not one of which had any redeeming qualities - including the heroine). If you can find enough entertainment value to make it through the first two hundred pages of sludge (only sheer curiosity of 'how bad can it get?' kept me going), you are rewarded for your perseverance with a plot twist that leads to the most graphic, brutal and gratuitous rape scenes it has ever been my misfortune to read.

You better have a willingness to suspend all critical thought and a strong stomach to get through this one but I would suggest that you just don't even bother.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Disgusting and twisted 5. Februar 2013
Von D-cal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have no idea how anyone could read this book with any enjoyment. The characters are sick and twisted(probably like the author) The grandfather kidnaps and tortures is own grandchild for "her own good", and then when she is repeatedly attacked, shes ignored almost with indifference like she deserved it and should take it. She is also hated for defending herself, also the first almost rape how is that even close too... oops buy me sparkly jewelry lets be lovey dovey again. She is a mat to be used and walked on without much consideration, it was just plain disgusting and twisted. the author needs to understand characters and people better, maybe they should never write again don't encourage them and read something less twisted. There is nothing fun, interesting or eco-friendly in this just random old useless ideas splashed in throughout a story of an abused mistreated girl, by 2 dimensional sadistic characters.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The one that I almost put away 30. Januar 2012
Von jlmac3011 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This story was a slow start for me. It felt like I was coming in to the middle of a story and I needed to catch up. I spent quite some time trying to figure out what was going on and I ended up putting the book aside for a few days. I kept coming back to it to read some more in hopes that I would get into it. It took me 23 days to read this book but I didn't give up and now that I am finished I am glad that I didn't give up on it.

This book had a ton of action and well developed characters. The characters were one of the reasons I did not give up on this book. Kaitlyn was thrown into a situation that she didn't ask for and answers to her questions were vague. She was kept in the dark about where she was and what was going on so I felt a kindred spirit because I felt the same way reading the beginning of the book. Her frustrations were my frustrations. I couldn't let her down. Kaitlyn had strength and a sarcasm that I found refreshing. She didn't give up and neither did I. I liked Micah but felt like there was more to him. I felt like I got surface details but I wanted to know him more. Shawn was just a hateful person and I didn't like him one bit. Alex was one that I want to see more of. He is like a brother and his presence eases the tension between others.

The writing wasn't what hindered my reading experience. I just wasn't sure where it was going and it took me some time to figure it out. The author wrote the story from Kaitlyn's point of view so the reader learns details at the same pace as Kaitlyn. The story started with an avalanche on a slope and the action continued from there. It seemed that there was always something going on. The story was driven by an organization called the Seven, an organization that protects earth. The elements of water, earth, fire, and wind were all represented. The subtle way the conservation of Earth's resources was interspersed in the story was excellently written. She handled the intense, sometimes uncomfortable, situations with enough information that the reader got the idea without explicit details.

About halfway into the book I was hooked and enjoyed reading it all the way up to the end. I didn't have all my questions answered and the ending was a surprise. Hopefully the second book, Air, will answer some of those lingering questions. I am interested to see how the characters develop into the next book. The characters are what saved this book from the "unread book graveyard". Take a chance, get passed the first part of the book and then you will be rewarded with a great story.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Skip this book 14. August 2012
Von Rasheeta C - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I did not like this book at all. It's a mess. And the main character was not likeable. I was unable to feel sympathy for the main character, frankly I feel she wanted what happen to her happen. She had powers she could have use but she didn't. She had a chance to learn self defense and weapons but she never took it serious. This girl was stalked, attacked, kidnapped and held hostage, starved, force to be medical evaluated, was provided little clothes, almost froze to death, kidnapped again, raped and molested, tortured, beaten, and she never once really fought back. She was weak minded, she took nothing serious. At one point the 2nd kidnapper had her trap on an island surround by bad ppl and all she had to do was move to cause an earthquake or other disaster in which she could have escape but she did nothing even after he rape her vaginally, anal, and with a candle. Even after she knew without a doubt the others on the island were helping her attacker. I was unable to connect with the main character so when those bad things happen all I could think was she ask for it and kinda deserve it.
