This review may lean slightly toward the side of spoiler-ish, so stop reading now if you want. Then again, if you’ve even half a clue what went on in Twilight, you’ll have no surprises in Promise.
At the beginning of this debut novel, we are introduced to Ellie and what appears to be the typical life of a typical teenager. It’s this first bit of writing that kept my interest – not so much because the information was riveting (remember, typical and typical) but because the writing was such that the typical -sounded- good. (Or read well…whatever you like.)
I’m feeling slightly up and down on Cynthia Hand’s Unearthly. On one hand, I definitely liked Clara – she has a lot of depth and it’s obvious Ms. Hand took the time to really flesh her out. On the other hand, I really feel the novel was plagued by a lot of filler and not a lot of actual substance.
