    I have not read many YA novels, and decided to read this one as part of the book of the week feature being run by the Goodreads group I am a member of I was pleasantly surprised by this debut novel by Kristen DaRay, which kept my interest from start to end.It is a light read for a fantasy, with good pace The interaction between the characters, especially that of Carson and her aunt or her boyfriend, was well handled, but I feel it lacked the emotional punch that could have added that little ex I have not read many YA novels, and decided to read this one as part of the book of the week feature being run by the Goodreads group I am a member of I was pleasantly surprised by this debut novel by Kristen DaRay, which kept my interest from start to end.It is a light read for a fantasy, with good pace The interaction between the characters, especially that of Carson and her aunt or her boyfriend, was well handled, but I feel it lacked the emotional punch that could have added that little extra Despite this, the characters are well developed and likeable, and you do begin to sympathise with the situations they find themselves in.The story, and the writing, improves as the book progresses and the author draws out the truth behind Carson s heritage, what lies ahead of her, and what dangers she will face because of who she is The book left me intrigued to learn where Carson s journey will eventually take her.The writing could benefit from a little polishing i a few places, but this does not detract from the quality or the enjoyment of the story Overall, a great effort, and I would recommend this book to anyone who loves YA fantasy science fiction stories set in the modern world

    Kristen DaRay s debut novel, is a wonderful first effort Carson is a high school senior living in a small town called Alice This is an interesting tale because Carson who has zero trouble in school and is in fact the valedictorian of the school hasn t been accepted to a single college But the strange thing is her life is about to get a whole lotcomplex, when Aaronmon sneaks into her dreams.I think that DaRay did a wonderful job with Carson, she is not only likeable but also believable Kristen DaRay s debut novel, is a wonderful first effort Carson is a high school senior living in a small town called Alice This is an interesting tale because Carson who has zero trouble in school and is in fact the valedictorian of the school hasn t been accepted to a single college But the strange thing is her life is about to get a whole lotcomplex, when Aaronmon sneaks into her dreams.I think that DaRay did a wonderful job with Carson, she is not only likeable but also believable She is a fabulous heroine and very likeable All the supporting characters are likewise well written, and have such depth written into them The plot is interesting and keeps you involved I finished this book in one sitting, but I m an oddity when I get sucked in I just keep reading, and have been known to read while walking into walls I loved the world in which Carson lives and also the one in which her parents live I do believe that another run through with an editor would be of value, there were quite a few mistakes but not so bad that it detracted from the story All in all this is a wonderful debut novel and I am looking forward to the next book in this series.I recommend this book to anyone who likes YA and anyone who likes fantasy or science fiction I give this book 4.5 stars note I let my son who is 9 read this book and he LOVED it So that may give you an idea on the age ranges of readers who can enjoy this story since I am 45.Details Disclaimer Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review The free book held no determination on my personal review

    Kyra s star ratings Story Characters Writing mechanics Emotional engagement For starters, I have to say that I m not the target audience for this novel I prefer novels written for adults, with adult characters in an adult voice, and Gemini of Emreiana is definitely a Young Adult novel, aimed at teens and at fans of that voice and style So I ve tried to adjust my reactions and opinions in this review to account for this Gemini of Emreiana is a sweet, engaging novel that grows Kyra s star ratings Story Characters Writing mechanics Emotional engagement For starters, I have to say that I m not the target audience for this novel I prefer novels written for adults, with adult characters in an adult voice, and Gemini of Emreiana is definitely a Young Adult novel, aimed at teens and at fans of that voice and style So I ve tried to adjust my reactions and opinions in this review to account for this Gemini of Emreiana is a sweet, engaging novel that growspowerful towards the end Carson has always thought she was a normal girl, and has the normal teenage concerns about friends, romance, and what life will hold after high school Then she learns that nothing about herself or her life is what she thought it was, and finally is forced to make some difficult, heartbreaking decisions to protect the people she loves and the planet she has always called home I found the characters engaging, and the romance between Carson and her childhood sweetheart Kyle was sweet I also found the growing tension between Carson s love for Kyle and her mixed and confusing feelings for Aaronmon, her Emreianan guardian, intriguing And, not to give away any spoilers, butthan one thing at the end nearly moved me to tears.There are a couple of issues that, I feel, hold Gemini of Emreiana back from being the book it could be The first is that while the writing style is clear and pleasant, there are places where I felt the story would have benefitted from ain depth, sophisticated treatment of emotions, backstory, and other issues I ll admit that this impression might be because I mused to novels written in an adult voice, while this lighter, younger voice may betypical for YA writing, especially considering that the story is told in first person from Carson s point of view The other thing is that the mechanics of the writing are not quite up to a professional standard There are numerous problems with grammar, punctuation, misused words, and other similar issues As an independent author, even if an editor is used, the author is ultimately responsible for the quality of the book and therefore needs to do whatever is necessary to make sure the book is as mistake free as possible.Overall, Gemini of Emreiana is an enjoyable book Ms DaRay has great potential as an author, and I look foward to watching her continued development.Rating note I ve changed my rating from 3 stars to 4 After thinking about it, I decided it was unfair to rate the book on the basis of what I would expect fromadult oriented fantasy, and to look at itfrom the perspective of the target audience Though I do want to add that cleaner copy would definitely boost the book s rating

    Carson s life seems to be going okay until, despite being valedictorian she is still rejected from every college she applies to It soon becomes clear that not all is as it seems with her family Her mother, who she believed to be dead is infact alive, but living in a different world where she is the ruler of the land, and Carson herself, is an alien and her life is in danger because of a war she had no idea was happening Everything Changes for Carson once Aaronmon comes into her life, he is a Carson s life seems to be going okay until, despite being valedictorian she is still rejected from every college she applies to It soon becomes clear that not all is as it seems with her family Her mother, who she believed to be dead is infact alive, but living in a different world where she is the ruler of the land, and Carson herself, is an alien and her life is in danger because of a war she had no idea was happening Everything Changes for Carson once Aaronmon comes into her life, he is a kind of body guard sent from Emreiana to keep her safe until she can be returned to take her rightful position She comes to realise that not only is she in danger but so is everyone who comes into contact with her, this forces her to re evaluate all her relationships, even the one with Kyle, her long term boyfriend.Gemini of Emreiana is a fantasy story, or is it sci fi with the alien content I m not sure, but it does follow the fantasy pattern Teenage girl suddenly finds out she has powers and is helped by a male who knew all along The story is not totally unique, although it does have a few points that I found are new to me, on the whole it felt very much like the majority of stories of this type that I have read with only slight differences like names and places.Kristen DaRay does have a nice writing style, it is easy to read and has a good flow, with natural sounding dialogue, and fully developed characters There were a few editing issues that if fixed would improve the whole feel of the book Personally I get a little miffed with obvious mistakes that should be picked up by a thorough read through, but I know this isn t the case for everyone so don t be put off the book by my nit picking Copy supplied for review

    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 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 onechapter 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
