Haley's mother goes missing during a trip to Iceland. After a year, when Haley too visits Iceland, she discovers how her mother disappeared and gets ensnared in her ancestors' centuries-old world of magic and folklore. I found it neat how the book was set in Iceland, because that appears to be an uncommon setting for a story to take place in. The overall storytelling was vivid and beautiful, and the way the characters from myth came alive was fascinating. I love the author's voice and will most certainly be checking some of her other books out. In all, 'Thief Eyes' is definitely a must-read for those who like Norse mythology.


I would recommend this to: Anyone, especially those interested in mythology.

Elizah has recently moved to upstate New York and just wants to be alone. That is, until she meets the mysterious Nathaniel in the graveyard her mother Part of the reason why I thought this book was so good was that I could very easily relate to and empathize with the main character. She is very unlike most other female main characters, which she even states in the very first part of the book. I have never come across a female character quite like Elizah. Overall, I found the story's being told from her uncommon view of life to be very refreshing. The other part of why I enjoyed this book is that I just like books that are about ghosts. Anne Spollen did an excellent job of blending reality with darker supernatural aspects, and in doing so, made her book unforgettable in my eyes. All in all, I would gladly recommend this book to someone, just as long as they don't need something to be lighthearted in order to enjoy it.


I would recommend this to: Fans of ghosts and the supernatural.

Tally became Pretty and she has joined the "Crim" clique in New Pretty Town, where she meets Zane, who keeps her bubbly and together they try to overcome their brain lesions and escape back to the New Smokies. Overall, I enjoyed the book because it continued the plot, but after reading the first book I had higher expectations for the second one. I am going to read the third book, because I enjoy the plot and want to find out what happens, but I felt that Pretties was slow.


I would recommend this to: Anyone who has read Uglies.
