Ut I tend to like magic books filled with words I can t ite pronounced When an author describes the spell as something fluid indiscernible and foreign without Really Divulging About It I divulging about it I like it s a cop out way of saying I couldn t be bothered with researchor being original for that matter Despite my grievances I found Torn to be an enjoyable read It had action set in two worlds that had no business intersecting a reluctant "heroine bound for greatness and a promising romance which is sure "bound for greatness and a promising romance which is sure give me future headaches But hey I feel that we barely scratched the surface of this mystical world and Mo s inherited powers has barely been tapped I have the second book and rest assured it s going p a notch or two in my insurmountable TBR pile One of my favorite reads of 2011 First about the Cover I liked it The girl s bangs are a bit weird but I feel as if I m looking at an actual person someone with character rather than just the same girl thats on every other single YA book out there This image sticks out Also Torn s plot held such promise Instead of taking the sual YA book formula and creating the main character with all the powerabilitydestiny O Rourke went and killed that person off No joke the one with the destiny was dead from the start of this book Well not just dead but rather killed off How kick ass is that Not something yo Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyMurder magic and the Mob That s TORN in a nutshell Well if you add in one of the better love triangle I ve read this year with two very different but eually appealing guys and a hidden magical world that lies at the brink of destructionI have no comment on the cover but the title of TORN is perfect Maura Mo Fitzgerald is torn Torn between her incarcerated father and the ncle who stepped in to take care of her and her mother Torn between the Life She Led In she led in shadow of her vibrant and beautiful best friend and the future she must embrace in the wake of her friends murder Torn between a new world of magic and the mundane world she s always known Torn between the human guy assigned to protect her and the magical guy who needs her to save his peopleAs much as I liked the romances and the choices Mo had to make I did have a couple issues The first half of TORN reads like a contemporary YA with only the barest hint of anything paranormal going on I wish the author had speed p the narrative and kicked in the paranormal elements much earlier as the excitement danger and romance really took off once they came into play I also never got over the protagonist s name Her name is Maura but everyone calls her Mo or even Mouse It never stopped sounding weird every time I read itOverall despite the slow start and odd name the last half of TORN rocked The love triangle works exceptionally well and like Mo I felt torn between Collin and Luc too There is so much to learn about the magical world that hides along side our own and Mo s role in saving it I m already looking forward to how it all plays out in TANGLED the second book in the Torn Trilogy which will be published in February of 2012Sexual ContentKissing I have heard some people say that the cover didn t really pull them in For me the cover had absolutely nothing to do with me picking The Infinite Air up this book I have an advanced review copy It is green and simply says Torn on the cover I grabbed this book simply because the title caught my attention Simple yet powerful I was curious to see what this book was really about From the very first few pages I was hooked Mo s loss andest for revenge paired with her growing and often confusing feelings about two very different men in her life make readers fall in love with her With every page I found myself becoming and wrapped The Spill up in her and in this intriguing and original story I also found myself conflicted along with Mo over which guy was really right for her First there is Luc who knew her friend Verity and is directly connected to all the magic that has now taken over Mo s life Mo is sure that he had a thing for Verity and is constantly overwhelmed with doubts Does he really want her or is she merely a substitute for the girl he can no longer have Then we have Colin who has been hired to protect her but who is slowly letting his guard down From the beginning I knew that something would happen between these two and I am glad it did Colin simply wants to.

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Talesuick Dirty A refreshing perspective from someone who was never supposed to be the one to save the world A story of love fate and chance beware once you start you won t be able to put it downOpening Sentence I woke p to the smell of Lysol and the end of the worldThe ReviewWhen Mo Fitzgerald wakes Is It Bedtime Wibbly Pig? up in the hospital all she wants to know is what happened to her best friend Verity Mo remembers everything that happened the night her best friend died But she doesn tnderstand any of it Everyone keeps avoiding her estions except the mysterious Luc He tells her answers she doesn t want to hear that Verity died and it s best if she just keeps on living her normal life But Mo won t let it go It normal life But Mo won t let it go It her mission to find out who or what killed her best friend and to make sure they pay When the magical world of Arcs needs another Vessel because Verity died Mo a Flat someone who can The first start to finish fabulous book I have read this year every moment rang true Delicious Heros Chilling Villains And heros chilling villains and main character who is relatable loveable and admirable This book is beautifully written and action packed executing both those elements flawlessly is an amazing achievement WOW Who doesn t love a character torn between two dangerous worlds and two risky guys The only thing safe about this book is how good it isI can t decide who I think Mo should end p with Probably Colin but Luc may win me over Two of my favorite romantic love interests this year Two guys Two worlds Two destinies One ChoiceYikes I know right The love triangle alarm is blaring in my ears I should ve really ran for the hills Let me be honest and say I didn t see that blurb when I started reading Otherwise Torn would ve been thrown in a pile of maybe never I have an aversion to love triangle but for once this book actually handled it in a way that didn t incite some self inflicted eyes gouging This book was Training the Help (Hedon Falls uite a pleasant surprise In a way it was reminiscent of Holly Black s Curse Workers series Mafia and magic seems like an odd combination but they somehow worked Maura Fitzgerald just witnessed the horrifying murder of her best friend Verity She tried to convince herself that it was only a case of being in the wrong place and at the wrong time But deep inside she knew that there was no such thing for someone like her After all her family s ties to the mob was as notorious as her father s reputation as a money laundering felon They have enemies seen and now seeminglynseen She made a promise to avenge her death but there are forces in the works that her When Not to Build usuallyiet existence didn t prepare her for With a hired bodyguard keeping an eye on her every move and a shady boy who keeps on popping in places when she least expects him to Mo finds out eventually that getting entangled with the mob would be a walk in the park compared to the world that she s about to stumble into It s ite funnyand weird how the fated saviour of the entire world as we know it was killed right off the bat so the story focused on the second fiddle I hard a hard time accepting it first because of the numerous times I was told that Mo hate that name by the way would never amount to anything as glorious as saving the world But as the story nfolds Mo s determination to find Verity s killers became the spine that she initially lacked If you ask me I think the blurb on the front cover was a bit misleading The love triangle wasn t really the focal point of the story Hello Bravo ! - Activity Book until closer to the end when Colinestionably and without warning started to change the way he saw Mo and how he acted around her The author eliminated much of the agony that I go through when I read love triangles and to which I m very
Thankful The Lead Charater Didn 
The lead charater didn even waffle about the two love interests An Eye for an Eye untilwell like I saidntil closer to the end Mo spent the majority of the book angsting over what amounts to betrayal had she return Luc s advances You see like her I was nder the impression that Luc and Verity had a thing and to some extent they did The author didn t really spend too much time explaining about the complexities of their relationship nor did she do a good job of convincing me that Luc could just fall in like with Mo based on Verity s stories about her alone I do wish that the magic and incantations or spells were a bit evolved I don t know about you Everyone has secretsEven best friendsMo Fitzgerald knows about secrets But when she witnesses her best friend's murder she discovers Verity was hiding things she never could have. .

Keep her safe and will do whatever It To Protect Her I Have takes to protect her I have admit I can t decide who want her to be with If you like supernaturalfantasy books then you should definitely check this one out Even if you don t I say check this out anyway Okay so from the blurb it sounds like the book is going to open with some action right Well it doesn t because guess what The first half of the blurb happens before the book even starts Yeah how exciting I don t even care that this wonderful friend is dead because I never even meet herThis though is the least of the problems I had with Torn I d like to start with something positive and I m finding it hard That s not to say the book was horrible It wasn t It was just okay I received this from a LibraryThings give away and it s taken me almost a month to read it I finally forced myself to take it to the gym and read on the treadmill just so I could finally get it out of the wayThere were so many could finally get it out of the wayThere were so many I wanted to like about it but I just couldn t So starting there the first thing was the cover The cover put me off right away I know I shouldn t judge the book by the cover and in this case I truly didn t I hate the cover The girl looks boring and pasty and I hate the weird part in her bangs And what was p with the cloth wrapped around her head The blurb is what made me want to read this book and I hope that the next book in the series has a better cover because this one didn t do the book any favorsMoving on from the superficialThe characters oh how they drove me nuts Mo or Mouse as random people call her is supposed to be nice Yes nice We re told multiple times throughout the novel that she is nice one while Verity is the energetic pretty vibrant friendly outgoing special one The problem with nice is that it s boring and we never really see Mo do anything or even say anything that would label her as super nice She has very few interactions with people her own age other than her love interests She doesn t seem like the nice type She s mildly rude to her mom her ncle her lawyer the police and even her love interests and only hangs out with another friend because she doesn t want people to talk about her not being nice and normal Luc is the first love interest to appear and oh what a tangled mess she gets into with him right away He s weird and is pretending to be a doctor and he might have been dating her dead friend Verity But what s so bad about that It s perfectly normal and nice of course to lust after your dead friend s boyfriend at her funeral right See why I don t buy the whole Mo is sooo nice aspect For the first half of the book Luc is weird annoying frustrating and filled with a superiority complex Nothing appealing at all about him yet apparently he s hot and that is enough for Mo The second half he gets a bit better although he becomes a bit boring and predictable then O Rourke it seemed couldn t decide who Luc was One moment he s talking as if he were an old fashioned middle aged man and the next he s sing the word ain t Considering the sometimes Four Word Film Reviews unusual not is a good way vocabulary O Rourke chooses tose instead of a well placed common noun or verb I m thinking she was often pulling words from the dictionary just to sound smart Maybe this is what happened to LucI did like Colin He was independent distrustful of everyone even Mo and he seemed to have a believable attitude to the world he was living in Too bad O Rourke had to ruin his consistency by having him fall for Mo Considering he s a few years older and obviously has maturity from his life experiences than Mo I couldn t figure out why she appealed to him in the least The kiss between them was steamy though and I ll give O Rourke props for thatThe plot dragged Seriously dragged Like cut the first hundred pages of Mo flip flopping between lusting for Luc and then trying to focus on her dead friend s death all while lusting after Luc just to remind s that Mo is a mature high schooler who doesn t want to be trapped in her hometown forever Oh sucks to be you Colin who will never leave his hometown He s SOL in the seuelThe action once it starts in the last few chapters is confusing and lacking specific details The magic blasted into her the magic I guess I should have looked closely to see that the 4 star rating only came from 200 and some readers but c mon people where are your standards A grea. O choose between two very different eually dangerous guys protective duty bound Colin and brash mysterious Luc One wants to save her one wants to claim her Which would you choose. ,
