    Scales is your typical heroine origins story And like all good origin stories, the main character is an orphan girl, coming of age and wanting to avoid the life fate has in store for her Instead of her becoming a vampire, like most of these stories seem to go, she is a shape shifting gargoyle A bit of originality I can t say I ve read any other books about that However, the book does follow the normal recipe a reader of young adult fiction has come to expect.I will give the author credit, sh Scales is your typical heroine origins story And like all good origin stories, the main character is an orphan girl, coming of age and wanting to avoid the life fate has in store for her Instead of her becoming a vampire, like most of these stories seem to go, she is a shape shifting gargoyle A bit of originality I can t say I ve read any other books about that However, the book does follow the normal recipe a reader of young adult fiction has come to expect.I will give the author credit, she is writing about what she knows The author traveled and studied abroad, so low and behold, so is her character This means the books is trustworthy in its facts Nothing worse than an author writing about a country they have never visited.The book didn t emotionally pull me in, but the plot twists, upcoming reveals and secrets, are sure to keep any reader flipping the pages I would say this book is marketedtoward young adults who enjoy fantasy novels The con play crowd are sure to enjoy this tale So if that s your thing, then you should def spice up your reading life by taking a break from dragons, zombies, and vampires and give some gargoyles a try in Scales I received Scales for free from Sage s Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review

    The main draw for me with Scales was the protagonist, Tessa She has a strong personal well of strength which is evident in everything she does In a first person style book the person talking has to be sympathetic, enjoyed, and admired by the person reading it The entire book rests on them Tessa does not fail this test in any way I liked her from the first page, and I never stopped.The plot moves smoothly, and the subtle hint of menace which slowly grows until just the right moment The othe The main draw for me with Scales was the protagonist, Tessa She has a strong personal well of strength which is evident in everything she does In a first person style book the person talking has to be sympathetic, enjoyed, and admired by the person reading it The entire book rests on them Tessa does not fail this test in any way I liked her from the first page, and I never stopped.The plot moves smoothly, and the subtle hint of menace which slowly grows until just the right moment The other characters are engaging, and well written The descriptions are livid, and have almost a hazy, painters feel to them.The only thing that throws me off is I m uncertain motives of Ezra His actions sometimes do not stack up with what he says, and does However, he is still oddly charming Overall, wonderful book from a new author.reposted from

    This book is about a young girl, Tessa, who is studying abroad in England and unexpectedly turns into a gargoyle She is faced with trying to figure out how to go day to day with this new life, figuring out who is good and who is bad, and who all are gargoyles and who are something else There is a lot of history, myths, and mystery in this book and it made for a really good read The characters were really interesting, especially Ezra Peter was definitely my favorite At first I thought the bo This book is about a young girl, Tessa, who is studying abroad in England and unexpectedly turns into a gargoyle She is faced with trying to figure out how to go day to day with this new life, figuring out who is good and who is bad, and who all are gargoyles and who are something else There is a lot of history, myths, and mystery in this book and it made for a really good read The characters were really interesting, especially Ezra Peter was definitely my favorite At first I thought the book was going to be all about Tessa getting used to her new life as a gargoyle and living at the bookstore, but surprisingly it didn t We got to travel to Scotland There were only 3 things that were a little disappointing 1 I would have liked to learn a little bitabout gargoyles through this story 2 I felt like the last scene with the main bad guy, Kai, went by way too fast and without giving too much away too easy To be such a powerful person, I feel that scene kind of made me question just how powerful he really was I also would have liked to have learned a little bitabout his and Tessa s history together 3 The final battle scene, although it was well written, again, I felt was just a little too easy It had extreme potential I would start to get on the edge of my seat and then would find myself eventually saying, Oh That s it Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book I give Scales 4 out of 5 stars It was intriguing, fast paced, and full of mystery I look forward towork by this author
