You know how some books are so bad they’re good? This isn’t one of those books. I almost didn’t want to share this one with you guys. In the end I figured that if I could save someone the torture of reading this, then it was worth it.

This was a free e-book and I want a refund. After reading the summary, it sounded like something that would be right up my alley. A parallel dimension where everything is beautiful and a girl that has the literal key to save Earth from destruction? Yes, please! Then, I read it. I should have said “No, thanks buddy”.

I only finished it because I dislike leaving books halfway.

The main character Reece is a Mary Sue. Her friends are Mary Sues, even the one guy that hangs out with them. I don’t even remember his name, all I know is that he likes cars and -nope that’s all I know. And the love interest is super handsome. Like so handsome. I know this because she keeps pointing out how handsome he looks in different lighting and when he’s fighting. So handsome. Oh, his name is Levi and he’s the Emperor’s son. Great catch Reece. Levi has a cousin named Harrison Ford-no wait, that’s not right. I don’t know Harrison’s last name but he was pretty funny and snarky. I think he was also handsome.

The storyline is pretty predictable. The final council meeting was more disappointing than the meeting with Vulturi in the final Twilight movie. Not even exaggerating.

I give it only one taco in the Taco Scale of Awesome. There was high potential for this and it saddens me that the author wasn’t able to bring this world to life like it should have. Don’t read it. I don’t understand how there’s two other books. Maybe they get better? I’m not about to find out.

Until next time. Mon, over and out.
