Ethereal (Celestra #1) by Addison Moore

Ethereal (Celestra #1) by Addison Moore.


Sixteen-year-old, Skyla Messenger is a dead girl walking. 

When her newly remarried mother moves the family to Paragon Island, to a house that is rumored to be haunted, Skyla finds refuge in Logan Oliver, a boy who shares her unique ability to read minds.

Skyla discovers Logan holds the answers to the questions she’s been looking for, but Logan’s reluctance to give her the knowledge she desires leaves her believing Logan has a few secrets of his own. 

Skyla’s bloodlines may just be connected to the most powerful angelic beings that roam the earth, and the more she knows, the more danger she seems to be in. 

Suddenly an entire faction of earthbound angels wants her dead, at least she still has Logan, or does she?

GENRE: Paranormal Romance

PUBLISHEDMarch 26th 2011 by Addison Moore

RATING: 3 stars


"Falling in love is a lot like death. It chooses you. It decides the moment and the chain of events that will preclude the precise intersection of life in which it occurs. It uses you - treats you as though you were malleable in its warm pliable hands. It doesn't bother to ask if you want it, or need it, just fills the gaping hole of destiny's design"

Ok, after reading that phrase and seeing a great rating, I thought this was going to be the best book ever. Guess what? It wasn't. ¬¬
(it wasn't that bad either)

The only character I liked was Gage. Skyla's and Logan's description is totally shallow, it lays on the surface. What do we know about them? She is blond, he has wonderful eyes and they fell in love in what? 30 seconds?

I love reading YA novels and one of the cliches is that love at first sight thing but in order to be effective you need to get some description of the feelings and what happens to the characters. Here I didn't get it. 

Not even the love triangle was well developed, not strong enough. (view spoiler)
Everything in this book happens SO fast!

The idea of the book is really good but the way it's done didn't work for me. 

The short chapters were good at some point, because I like to read "one more chapter" before going to work or before sleeping etc, but it wasn't that cool the way they jumped from one topic to another. Sometimes it was like: What?!?! How did I get here? 

Anyhow, the end brings up an interesting turn of events, I would like to see what happens. I'll probably read the sequel but I'm not dying to.

  1. Great review :) I loved that opening line, shame it didn't live up to the expectations. I think I still may give it a try though :)

  2. the end was pretty good and had an interesting twist that could make the story better, so I'll keep reading the series too!
