A good book to read
The book was interesting and eye catching to read. I got hooked on trying to read all the way to the end. I like how there are parts that relate to actual reality in life, places and things. Also, every now and then there were only a few grammar corrections that needed to made that caught my eye. But, it will only bother you, if you are a stickler about grammar like me. The descriptive fight scenes were intense and I liked them so much. My fave character is indeed, Charlie and her role to try to save everyone and be reunited with Jeanne (her twin) again. Furthermore, Jeanne's my second favorite character, hopefully to red more about her and everyone else. I'm definitely going to finish this series!!! 😊
The story was okay. It was intriguing. I agree with the other reviewers on the dialog--it seemed underwhelming and like a chore to read some of it. Charlie's parents calling her Princess all the time was sickening. The fact that Charlie is COLLEGE aged throws the book off for me. Charlie "feels" to me like she's high school aged based on the writing and themes throughout.
The Unlocked by: J. D. Stonebridge
Great read with a fun group of characters and a interesting paranormal reading. Time for my hot popcorn and plenty of time with my iPad book. Looking forward to the next book. KSW
