Synopsis: Thea, all-mighty Mother Earth, only had one rule to follow above all else, one promise to keep to her brother: never take a human form. She would’ve kept that promise if it weren’t for Brice. He’s handsome and confident, but above all he’s merciless.
He’s also a hunter who has tormented Thea for years. She believes if she could teach Brice compassion, she might finally be able to save her creations and herself from his savage ways. Then she meets Chamber: another hunter.
She soon finds herself fascinated by−and torn between−the two boys: Brice and Chamber. Lost within a torrent of human emotions, Thea starts to lose who she is as she falls in love with the one thing that she’s always hated: a hunter… a human.
Review: Isn’t that just a beautiful cover? I chose this book for that reason – and also because I liked the idea of such a unique point of view.
I think the point of view was handled wonderfully. Seeing things from the eyes of Mother Nature was interesting, especially as she took human form for the first time and was exploring everything human. She quickly gets wrapped up in human emotions, which is something she thought she’d be able to distance herself from. And then we learn something else: her father is God.
I really liked seeing things from Thea’s point of view, and she was my second favourite character. I half expected her to be the whiny sort of person, especially as things she had previously planned weren’t going according to her wants. But she didn’t turn out to be that person. There were a few moments of confusion for her on the side as she figured out things about being human, but otherwise she reviewed her situation and tried to make the smartest choice, even though it didn’t always work out for her.
My favourite character was May. She’s the typical low cut shirts, super short shorts girl who throws herself at Brice, and at first I didn’t like her. But gradually her true self emerges and I was able to see her for who she really was, and I liked her :3
This is the typical love triangle story and although there is another plot line going as well (the main one) the love triangle is a huge part of it. If you don’t like them, then this isn’t for you. I didn’t really mind in this story because both relationships were different, and one was more forced onto Thea than the other. It kind of made the love triangle one that she wasn’t trying to be part of, and that made it seem less cliché.
The plot was… different? Kind of like the point of view choice. It was a bit slow and took a while to get to the point, but once it did I was surprised. A lot of things happened that I didn’t think was going to happen at all, and it had me reading further to find out what was happening.
Overall this was a well written book, and the author was definitely trying to do something new here. I liked it. :)
