I went out and bought one book this week again. Don't have a lot of money, and I'm saving up the cash I do have for a super awesome giveaway that's coming up! Figured I'd see what the craze is about this one particular book :)
ONE FINAL REMINDER:
If you live near Manhattan, don't forget to stop by Book of Wonder (18th St. between 5th and 6th Ave) tomorrow for your chance to meet Maggie Stiefvater, the author of Shiver! She, along with... 62(?) other authors will be signing their books between 2:00-5:15. Maggie's time slot is from 2:00-2:50.
Reviews this week:
1. Undone by Rachel Caine (review)
|Once she was a powerful Djinn. Then Cassiel defied her ruler, Ashan, who tore her very essence away and reshaped her in human flesh as punishment. Forced to live among mortals, Cassiel has found refuge among the Weather Wardens--whose power she must tap into regularly, or she will die.|
Cassiel earns her keep by assisting the Earth Warden Manny Rocha on his missions--which she finds much easier than coping with the emotions and frailties of her human condition, especially her growing affection for Manny's brother, Luis. But when Cassiel encounters a malevolent force that threatens the Rocha family, she discovers that her perceived human weaknesses may be her greatest strengths...
|Living among mortals, Cassiel has begun to develop a reluctant affection for them--especially the intriguing Warden Luis Rocha. As the mystery deepens around the kidnapping of innocent Warden children, Cassiel and Luis are the only ones who can investigate within both the human and the Djinn realms.|
But the more Luis and Cassiel search, the more dangerous the trail becomes, reaching not only into a fanatical splinter group, but into the highest ranks of Cassiel's immortal kin. An outcast from her own kind, Cassiel must now rely on her own limited earthbound powers to save the young Wardens...if it's not already too late.
Have any of you read these books? What do you think of them?
And what did you all get this week? =)
