    REVIEW COPY WAS PROVIDED BY AUTHOR IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW Dear Hope s Decree,You gave me hope that not all YA books are the same.It was like being able to breathe fresh air again.It was a really good feeling.It s been a while since I ve read anything outside contemporary YA NA books and this was a good break from that I ve always been a fan of anything that has any kind of Myth in the story A few of my faves are the Goddess Test series and Starcrossed series And you my friend, ha REVIEW COPY WAS PROVIDED BY AUTHOR IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW Dear Hope s Decree,You gave me hope that not all YA books are the same.It was like being able to breathe fresh air again.It was a really good feeling.It s been a while since I ve read anything outside contemporary YA NA books and this was a good break from that I ve always been a fan of anything that has any kind of Myth in the story A few of my faves are the Goddess Test series and Starcrossed series And you my friend, have been added to the list.The characters from start to finish were great I loved the development of the characters How each and every one of them had their own roles Another thing I loved about this is the unpredictability of where the story was going to go It was like I was blinded the entire time I ve always liked being the know it all reader who guesses what will happen next Most of the time, I am right and I was so surprised that I was wrong like half of the time for this one Just when I thought the story will be going this direction, it goes exactly the opposite of that AMAZING I love it THE STORY Trinity started having bad dreams again And not just dreams They reof a nightmare that has been hunting her when she was still a kid.Everything was normal normal isincluding her ability to feel other people s emotion , that was until the new guy at school came.Blain.He made her feel different.She knows when he s coming It s as if her body knows that he s there.It was as if they were connected.There was like a bond between them As soon as his hand touched mine my inner light washed over me, killing the darkness with its beauty The constant tug of war battling inside of me no longe held.She was determined to find out what it was but Blain wouldn t allow her to get to close.Then even weirder things started happening and before she knew it, she was discovering things about her that she didn t even know.She was the hope of humankind.She was the decendant of Pandora, the woman who unleased evil into the world.She was born to correct that mistake.She was hope.The problem is. Will she embrace that gift or will she runFOR ME THE PLOT WAS FLAWLESS.I didn t see any plot holes All the questions were explained in a proper way It book as a real page turner I m a slow reader because of work and taking care of my kid and my boyfriend and for a book to take me just 5 days to read It means the book was that good.TRINITY At first I thought she was going to be like the others Shy, awkward and pretty without knowing it type of character I m so relieved when she wasn t at all like that She did start out that way but she really surprised me towards the middle and even towards the end There were times where I sort of wanted to punch her because of Well it is going to be a spoiler if I said it but she was an amazing character.I loved how she didn t take crap from Blain I liked that She knew what she wanted and knew what she deservedI m the one whose life is on the line I continued How can you expect me to do anything if you won t give me the details You ve hardly told me anything I ve been patient hell I even accept my role in this crazy situation but I will walk away from this, from everything, if you don t start treating me with respectShe was brave and weak at the same time I like that in a character We can t all be strong and fearless At some point, people get weak and that s why I like her She had her moment of weakness and that s what makes her relatable and real.BLAIN So. I m kind of in the middle when it comes to Blain Well I understand his role I understand everything about what he has done for Trin but. I kind of felt there was something lacking about him I was totally rooting for Trevor the first few chapters because I felt he was a bit hmmm. how do I say it of an ass But I would have to say, he does look insanely hot to me Tall and lean, his black T shirt clung to his body, providing a hint of muscle beneath His sandy blond hair was short, but long enough to weave your fingers through its thick layers. HE S BLOND AND TALL SO MY TYPE Blain greeted us with a slow smile A lone dimple indented in his left cheek His royal blue shirt mimicked the color of his eyes as if he could look anygorgeous.. DIMPLE TOO MY TYPE I didn t like him during the first few chapters because honestly, I m all good with honesty but please don t send mix signals Pulheasseee. It was a bit of a turn off The good thing about Blain was he totally redeemed himself I guessed his reasons and they are totally acceptable but still I dunno just had mixed feelings towards him but at the end. He blew me away. Not in the sense that some of you might think Hihi MORPHEUS The dark one but I loved him Yeah he was evil in a way but NAH Not gonna say anything and spoil this character I love Morpheus He is HILARIOUSLY CHARMING But he is bad too.He is supposedly the opposite of Blain Instead of blond, he had dark hair Instead of blue eyes, he had green But honestly, this guy won my heart HEHE This wasn t the first time I fell for thevillany type is that even a word character rather than the main guy. I just couldn t help it.He was cocky as hell but in a very cute way He uses all types of cute pet namesthat made me giggle Examples are love, hunk of burnin love, love monkey, love machine Haha It was very cute how he uses them giggles like a highschool girlI d try to keep your desire for me hidden from your love monkey He might get jealous. See what I mean Absolutely cute Plus he was hot too.TRIN BLAIN You guys are cute Especially when you re arguing but I would have to say I felt a little short on the whole romance thing At least on the first part Most of the time, they were bickering but you know the connection is there Hey Blain I know you have a duty but you also have a duty to your heart But like I said, on the romance part, I think this lost this book some points to me I was expectingI just wantedof them but there was sooo little I WANTED MOOOOREE I m saying that in a good way.FINAL THOUGHTS I love this book so much It was a mix of a lot of things.Humor Romance Suspense Mystery There was a bunch of stuff in here that was VERY good I am very impressed with you and I am wishing to read the installment.The ending was not a cliffhanger but it was a very open ending that there wold be a sequel I will definitely be looking forward for the next book.I am highly recommending you, Hope s Decree, to every YA reader there who loves Greek Myth retellings I don t have anything but praises for this book But like I said earlier, the romance part lacked for me a little tiny bit I love my romance Hence, the 4 star rating It s actuallyof a 4.95 rating but because I only rate books either 4 or a 5 I stuck with 4 I LOVE YOU A LOT HOPE S DECREE I WILL SEE YOU ON THE NEXT BOOK SINCERELY,A WHIMSICAL READER

    I really dont know where to start when it comes to Hope s Decree accept to say that it was AMAZING I fell in love with the characters especially Blain, he is swoon and blush worthy all wrapped up in hotness There was so much drama in this story, Angela keeps her readers wanting , never wanting to put the book down and the suspense OMG I love mythology even in high school and getting the chance to read about about some of the God s is beyond epic Angela McPherson did not disappoint wi I really dont know where to start when it comes to Hope s Decree accept to say that it was AMAZING I fell in love with the characters especially Blain, he is swoon and blush worthy all wrapped up in hotness There was so much drama in this story, Angela keeps her readers wanting , never wanting to put the book down and the suspense OMG I love mythology even in high school and getting the chance to read about about some of the God s is beyond epic Angela McPherson did not disappoint with Hope s Decree I can not wait to read the sequel, I mean the cliff hanger she left us with was such a tease Trinity has been thrown into a world unknown to her til Blain and a bunch of others showed up in her home town Now that she has learned about this world she would give anything to be normal again, however she will not let those she loves down and is willing to do anything to keep them safe Blain is HOT and every girls dream, but he is giving Trinity mixed messages, she doesnt know whether to run from him or throw herself at him She can barely think when he s around but the connection they share is un avoidable However, there is too much going down for her to think of him while already having a boyfriend She just needs Blain to train her so she can be ready for what is to come

    Phenomenal book Hope s Decree is a YA novel that will have you hooked from the first chapter The premise is based on the myth of Pandora s box But where that myth ended, Hope s Decree began I ll save telling you about the storyline itself and instead focus on what made this book so fantastic First, there s the main character Okay, Trinity is a kickass protagonist Throughout the novel, she dealt with frightening nightmares, several frustrating men, and a few murder attempts And she handle Phenomenal book Hope s Decree is a YA novel that will have you hooked from the first chapter The premise is based on the myth of Pandora s box But where that myth ended, Hope s Decree began I ll save telling you about the storyline itself and instead focus on what made this book so fantastic First, there s the main character Okay, Trinity is a kickass protagonist Throughout the novel, she dealt with frightening nightmares, several frustrating men, and a few murder attempts And she handled them like a champ I often found myself nodding my head and or rooting for her.Second, the action was fantastic So many books shy away from conflict This one did not And again, let me reemphasize that Trinity can kick major butt Third, the book was unpredictable in such a refreshing way This I can t really go into since I don t want to give away too much about the storyline However, many of you, like me, have read so many books that the twists and turns are unsurprising With Hope s Decree I often had no idea what was coming next Fourth, I loved the ambience Most books skim over this aspect of the story, but here the author didn t And oh boy, the ambience here was deliciously creepy Lastly the ending geez, I couldn t tear my eyes away I wantI seriously hope a sequel is in the works because I m so not ready to leave this world

    I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review I was so happy to find out this was Greek mythology I have always loved it and this book made me love it evenThis was a fantastic tale of Pandora s box, I loved how the author took the story and elaborated it in a beautiful and modern way, I just couldn t get enough I have read a few books with their take on Greek mythology, but Pandora s box was a new one for me and since I have always been interested in the I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review I was so happy to find out this was Greek mythology I have always loved it and this book made me love it evenThis was a fantastic tale of Pandora s box, I loved how the author took the story and elaborated it in a beautiful and modern way, I just couldn t get enough I have read a few books with their take on Greek mythology, but Pandora s box was a new one for me and since I have always been interested in the tale I was excited and I was not disappointed or let down in the least.This book took me on an insane ride and I enjoyed every minute of it Bad guys gone good, good guys gone bad, memory loss and a centuries old destiny, whatcould a reader ask for I could never know what was coming next and that was the most exciting part I was also pleasantly surprised by the warriors and rouges it was like a fresh, different take on Angels vs Daemons or good vs evil, but if I can be so bold this was better for me, as I have started to feel like the Angel Daemon thing has been over done a bit The one thing that bugged me a little was that both Blaine and Trinity seemed to flip flop a bit to much for me They always wanted to be with each other at opposite times it was a little frustrating Then with Trinity she seemed to want her destiny and then she wants nothing to so with it, when you read it you will know why I don t want to spoil anything,but for me I did not understand it fully But as you can tell by my 5 star rating it was a small annoyance that I got over quickly with all the adventure and excitement I found Blaine and Trinity to be cute when they were admitting how they felt, and even when they were pushing and pulling their witty banter was funny and adorable Speaking of witty banter I think Morpheus was my favorite I loved his smart ass attitude and even found him endearing when no one else did, I always saw his light in there somewhere.The end left me with the feeling of impending doom and I am very curious to see were they go from here I loved this book and I know many others will too

    I think the main merit of this book is that it manages to arouse the reader s interest both for the book itself and for the Greek mythology in general And that there is not less given that these days the Young Adult and Fantasy literature and I refer to all subgenres and or related genres knows such flourishing and spreading.The author build a good game between realities and different plans real, dream, past, present a well led game that obliges the reader to actively participate He i I think the main merit of this book is that it manages to arouse the reader s interest both for the book itself and for the Greek mythology in general And that there is not less given that these days the Young Adult and Fantasy literature and I refer to all subgenres and or related genres knows such flourishing and spreading.The author build a good game between realities and different plans real, dream, past, present a well led game that obliges the reader to actively participate He is helped by the author s descriptive and flowing style you ll not know how pages pass and the images roll like in a movie.Also, the author is doing very well when shows the feelings and emotions of the characters, the way that they evolve Although the use of mythological aspects provides a freedom to create worlds and different plots, it can lead to somewhat illogical actions Angela McPherson avoids this trap, keeping the action logic and offering premises that allow a natural development of the action and of the characters The author gives us clues, red herrings that you ll sometimes follow, but in due course she provides the necessary explanations As for the rest, you will find deceptive or correct appearances, betrayals, broken or renewed alliances, unexpected and a satisfying ending, but not final.The action starts from the old dilemma destiny or free will From here begins the struggle for survival of our heroine that finds herself in a position to have to fight and repair the harm done by his predecessors or die.And as this would not be enough, she will discover the thrills of first love, first disappointments and doubts, uncertainties that love brings Of course, this aspect of the story will be the readers delight but will torment a bit Trinity.So, if you love to daydream at impossible love, if you like the Greek mythology and Fantasy in general, but also want some action you will not be disappointed by Hope s Decree If you do not like them, but you ll read the book, there are big chances to become a fan of them

    First I wish to thank the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I also wish to thank Lady Amber Reviews who made it possible to review this book in conjunction with the Hope s Decree blog tour.I ve always been intrigued with mythology In the past couple of years I ve read numerous YA books that have weaved mythology in to the storyline Some are retellings of old myths, some just graze on it but something about the use of the mythology always seems t First I wish to thank the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I also wish to thank Lady Amber Reviews who made it possible to review this book in conjunction with the Hope s Decree blog tour.I ve always been intrigued with mythology In the past couple of years I ve read numerous YA books that have weaved mythology in to the storyline Some are retellings of old myths, some just graze on it but something about the use of the mythology always seems to bring the story to life in a way that keeps the readers nose in the book and staying up to the wee hours to finish it Hope s Decree fits that bill and then some.Hope s Decree centers on the Greek myth of Pandora s Box For those that do not remember this myth very well, the author gives us the basics plusin the book in a creative and well done way You will start to see characters in a new light and will find yourself starting to put pieces of the puzzle together.Being a story within a story, the layers mesh well with each other Sometimes overlapping, sometimes paralleling and sometimes bouncing off each other like two magnets repealing Do not fret the answers will be given to you when the time is right Sometimes I found myself cussing the author for making me wait, but the outcome of the waiting was well worth it For those who are in to book boyfriends, you will find a worthy one in Blain Mysterious, good looking and totally bad ass.The first part of the book was a push and pull Some details and areas were just too drawn out while some were given than taken away too quickly Parts of the first half of the book just seemed too drawn out, too much time spent on some trivial moments, but all in all it was a good read I would recommend this to readers 15 and older and definitely for readers who love Greek mythology

    This book was a really great read I genuinely enjoyed the storyline Although the book wasof an issue of love and who to choose, the fiction part was quite interesting and I really did enjoy it My favorite part, aside from the love tension and frustrations, has to be the language from Crystal and Morpheus I found myself laughing at their silly choice of words I think it was a good choice to have them talk that way The sassiness was brilliant As for the love tension, that was brillian This book was a really great read I genuinely enjoyed the storyline Although the book wasof an issue of love and who to choose, the fiction part was quite interesting and I really did enjoy it My favorite part, aside from the love tension and frustrations, has to be the language from Crystal and Morpheus I found myself laughing at their silly choice of words I think it was a good choice to have them talk that way The sassiness was brilliant As for the love tension, that was brilliant While she was dating Trevor, she had intense feelings for Blain, as he did for her I like that he kept her guessing throughout the book But I m not going to lie I did get frustrated a few times when he said he didn t I found myself sighing and shaking my head at his indecision I think I even yelled STOP IT at the screen The ending was shocking, and the epilogue suggests that there will beto the story I really hope that it s true I have to give this book 5 out of 5 stars
