Reckless Magic am Books “I hadn’t figured anything out on my own yet.”Spoilers...duhOh Reckless Magic, where do I even start? A good friend of mine gave that book to me, since she is absolutely in love with the whole series. We agree with a lot of stuff, sadly this book is not one of them. I wanted to like it, I couldn’t. That doesn’t meant I don’t understand what people might see in it, I get it believe me, it is just not the one for me.Please let me tell you, no matter what I might say here, I don’t want to bash the author. I actually admire everyone who has the courage to write something and use the wonderful opportunity called self-publishing.If you like YA books, especially the paranormal romance kind, you might agree with me when I say it becomes harder and harder to separate the wheat from the chaff. There are so many of them and sometimes you find a little treasure that is something special and other times you find books that seemed to exist to just jump on the Twilight wagon. If you’re wondering, this is the latter category.Writing. I’m not a native English speaker. I make a lot of mistakes, especially when I’m busy and don’t re-read my stuff. The point is I’m a non native speaker that writes for fun, not a published author. Self-publishing is not an excuse for a bunch of mistakes in my opinion, you can still correct your own writing or ask friends and family for help during the editing process. This book reads like some kind of first draft, with the only editor being some autocorrection program. There are so many spelling and grammar errors, wrong punctuation and missing words up to a point where I only could shake my head in disbelief. If you are able to ignore the mistakes then you find a very average writing style. It is your typical YA first person narration and its filled with a lot of exposition and repetition. Especially the repetition gets to a point where it can only be called downright annoying. Something is explained by a character and then about five chapters later another character explains exactly the same thing, with almost exactly the same words again. Your readers are not stupid, they don’t forget details so easily, so please don’t treat them that way.Other than that the book is filled with unnecessary long sentences that mostly deal with over the top dramatic teenage angst. It is not the most awful writing style I’ve ever came across, but it is far from being good.Story. The story is about 16 year old Eden who is a witch and doesn’t know about it. She has been kicked out of several schools and private school Kingsley is her last hope. What Eden doesn’t know is that the school is basically the mash up version of Hogwarts and Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. There she meets Kiran, also new and soon the undying love of her tortured teenage life. Soon she finds herself in a lot of trouble, life threatening situations and a centuries old conflict.Now the idea itself is not that bad, sure it is not something I’ve never heard or seen before, but it could’ve been a lot better. The execution of the idea is just horrible.The pacing in this book is awful. It starts out fine, we get to know a bit about the characters and Eden starts to discover her magic more and more, but then it slows down. There are a few action scenes to keep up the suspense, but they are simply overshadowed by the amount of teenage angst and “he loves me, he loves me not, he acts like a jerk so he must definitely love me” stuff. Instead of moving the story forward it constantly stops for some chapters so that Eden can pine after Kiran or to describe to us how beautiful he is over and over again. Instead of immediately trying to help her so-called best friend Lilly she waits for the last possible minute to actually do something to save her, at some parts it almost seems like she has forgotten about her. The climax is almost non-existent. Instead of some showdown we get Eden rushing into court to yell that Lilly is innocent and that’s about it. The rest is her and Amory escaping, some lovey dovey moments with Kiran and more backstory exposition. If that seems more like a parody to you, then we’re on the same page.Speaking of exposition. I get it, backstory sometimes requires a lot of exposition, but there is exposition that is just told (maybe while eating Chinese food) and there is exposition that’s cleverly intertwined with the plot. Guess what’s the case here? If your answer is Chinese Food Exposition then we have a winner. There are whole chapters with nothing but expositional backstory, there is so much crammed in that it is seriously a drag. This book is not really written like one that could stand on its own and it is purposely written as the first book of a series, so from all the things that could’ve been rushed, the backstory shouldn’t have been one of them. World Building. The concept of this story and its world is not uninteresting, it is just very half-baked. The magical beings here are called Immortals, but they are not actually immortal. They were once but since they were forbidden to breed between their different races they are not anymore. If that sounds confusing, then just because it is. There are four categories of Immortals: Mediums, Witches, Shape-Shifters and Titans. Once there were Oracles as well. All of these species have different abilities and that’s where it gets extremely confusing. We get some glimpses of what different species can do, but it is never fully explained. The most definite of them are the shape-shifters and maybe Titans. The others, oh boy. Oracles are the most powerful, which I found quite interesting since if you look at several mythologies what an Oracle is, you might discover thtn the word is maybe misused here. An Oracle in its purest sense is someone who has precognitions about the future, prophetic dreams and gives mostly wise council. So, their role here is not that clear. Same goes for Mediums or Psychics, as they are called as well. First of all, I wouldn’t necessarily say a Medium and a Psychic are the same thing, related maybe, not the same. I had a hard time grasping what exactly they are capable off, especially compared to witches, since they seemed to share some abilities.Also, the whole mechanics on how magic works seemed not very thought through since it was mostly like “it works how the plot demands it”. The rules were explained on how they fitted the plot and the constant changes were blamed on Eden’s cluelessness and therefore they could explain whatever they wanted.Then there was the King’s Curse, the most confusing thing of them all. It is a disease that can kill immortals and seems to exist because they can only breed within their own species. It didn’t really make sense and just only exists for some kind of urgency and to make the stakes higher.The monarchy and politics were actually okay, even if it wasn’t something very original. King who is really just a dictator and rebels against him, but it could’ve been worse. Only thing that made me raise my eyebrow was their apparent main location, the magical kingdom of…Romania. In the middle of the Carpathians, I might add. Why? Because they are called Immortals and the Carpathians are mostly associated with Dracula? Whatever.Characters. I have to do this right? Eden. She doesn’t start out that bad, but her character development is basically backwards. What starts out as promising and with a lot potential becomes fast one of the most annoying, please-someone-just-shoot-her heroines I’ve ever came across. She is oblivious to everything, she constantly buys into the lies people tell her, she never asks the right questions, her priorities are so messed up its not even funny anymore and she is most of the time not able to stand up for herself in any kind of way. She basically is the best model after the Bella Swan prototype for the dumb YA heroine. People give her hints and tell her things all the time and she never gets anything. She never discovers anything on her own and you really wish someone would just get a bright red sharpie to write everything down for her. They even make a joke in the end on how she never gets anything, tell you what that was probably supposed to be a self-aware joke, but it wasn’t funny. If it was something then frustrating. To make it simple, she is dumb as hell. I think the author tried to keep the suspense by keeping Eden in the dark, because it also kept the reader in the dark and yeah that can work, but not if the reader catches on to things long before the heroine does. Eden also gets bossed around a lot. Everyone around her treats her like a child, lies to her and commands her about what she should do. Of course they all do it just to protect her, give me a f*****g break. But Eden doesn’t really care, sure she gets pissed sometimes, but in the end she obeys. The one time she makes a choice of her own is the one time she should’ve listened to what people told her. Actually not only Eden is to blame for this one, but everyone else as well. She makes the dumbest decisions not only because she doesn’t use her brain, but also because she is constantly lied to and maybe would’ve been more careful if she knew the whole truth about herself. Speaking of, her upbringing makes no sense. She grew up human, not knowing anything about her powers as a constant danger to others and herself, feeling miserable and like an outsider for most of her life. Then she is thrown into the whole magical society just like that and still doesn’t get the full truth, even if it would’ve prevented a lot of bad things. Her brother grew up apart from her in the magical society. He learned how to use his powers, about their parents and the ongoing conflict. My question is why? They could’ve kept them apart and teach her about who she or at least about what she can do, maybe that would’ve made her less of an idiot. There is no real explanation for it. I guess you could say because she is a girl and girls shouldn’t fight, but I don’t start this discussion here because it would only make me angry. Like the reader, Eden gets a ton of information throughout the novel, but she never really reacts like a normal person would. This is especially the case when it comes to her family. She gets to know her twin brother whom she never knew even existed, but hey it’s okay, no emotional impact or confusion here. They just act like they knew each other all of their lives and move in together. Her headmaster is also her grandfather. Sure why not. She laughs it off because she didn’t notice it on her own instead of feeling betrayed he again lied to her. Her parents might be alive. Awesome, but when can she see her boyfriend again and can they ever be together? One word: LAZY. This is just lazy writing. Also, she is more confused about the existence of a Monarchy than about magic. Because we don’t have monarchies nowadays? Okay, so I guess the Queen is fictional and Harry Potter real then. After finishing the book I realized that even if I spent about 300 pages in Eden’s head, I don’t know her as a person. Yes, I know about her magic and that she feel super freaky and loves Kiran and stuff, but what else is there? What does she like? What doesn’t she like (besides girls prettier than her)? Hobbies? Friends before she met Lilly? Plans for the future, besides being Mrs. Kiran Kendrick? But hey, who needs a well rounded character, right?Kiran. He is a prince. He is hot. He is arrogant. He is hot. He is British. He is hot. He doesn’t always agree with daddy. Did I mention he is hot? That is all Eden seems to care about anyways. I don’t know how many times Kiran’s looks are described in this book, because I honestly lost count. It was annoying to a point where I wanted to slam the thing against a wall and scream “I get it okay? Hot, British guy move on!” For being the main love interest there is actually not much to talk about here. He is pretty much a jerk the whole time. He drags Eden along and Seraphina (basically his fiancée), he loves his status, his a jackass to everyone around him and his feelings for Eden are pretty bi-polar. Or like Katy Perry would say: You change your mind, like a girl changes clothes. Of course he is only that way to protect her, because that totally explains humiliating someone more than once, bossing everyone else around, having no respect for anyone and being over the top manipulative. But hey, he is hot and British so who cares, right? I seriously wanted for someone to slap that stupid smirk out of his face. And again, we have no real personality here. Even Eden admits she doesn’t really know him (but it doesn’t matter because their love is strong anyway…WTF seriously). Likes? Dislikes? Hobbies? Boxers or briefs?Avalon. You poor guy are punished with such a horrible name. I mean I get it, Avalon and Eden, super duper symbolism. Almost all the names in this book are beyond stupid, but this one tops them all. You were at least tolerable Avalon and from all of the dimwits you deserved a bit more. That’s right folks, I didn’t hate him, yaaay party time! That doesn’t mean I actually really liked him though. He is also kind of a bossy jackass sometimes, but at least he has some redeeming qualities. He has some common sense, he actually thinks for himself and he has a direction in life, which is good. Sure, again we have not much of a personality to work with but at least there is something. Really irritating thing here is that he seems to fulfill the humanity is icky cliché.Quick thoughts on other characters:Amory: Too secretive. Probably compulsive liar. Professor X?Aunt Syl: Token human character.Lilly: Plot device.Talbott. Lassie. But actually potential to be likeable if given the chance.Jericho: Hello there, Jacob Black.Romance: I was thinking about talking about the other relationships as well, but this review is far too long already and I’m not in the mood. So let’s dive into the horrors of forbidden young love.I knew that this was a YA paranormal romance before I started reading and that it was about forbidden love. I was skeptical yes, but hey it could’ve been a good romance. It is not. First of all, neither of them is a well rounded, three dimensional character to begin with, which is not a good beginning. And it pains me to say this (and those two are by no means good or well written characters) but I actually knew more about Bella and Edward as people than I know about those two idiots. Sad, I know. They meet and immediately sparks fly…or spiders crawl, because there is anything but a spark. Eden and Kiran have no chemistry at all. She is the typical cliché heroine who falls for the guy at first sight, but needs a whole book filled with teenage angst to figure out her feelings. He is your typical jerk boyfriend and all he does is humiliate her, manipulate her and all the good stuff. Of course, he did it all because he loves her so much and wants her to be save.They don’t have one normal conversation in the whole book. They just fight or he is mean or she is dumb, you know the whole yada yada. I seriously wonder why the fell in love. Was it the magnetic attraction of their blandness? Or is there and unwritten rule that the dumb as f**k heroine and douchebag always belong together? I could’ve lived with just physical attraction that turned into something else later on (I mean she just goes on and on about his looks) but no, it had to be eternal love. They even go to a point where they compare each other to Romeo and Juliet. Let that sink in. I know a lot of YA authors love to make comparisons and references to classics and hey sometimes it actually works, but with a lot of them (like this one) you ask yourself if they actually read and understood the source material. My main problem is not only that the love story is written awfully, but (much like with Twilight actually) the message it sends. As a reader we tend to identify with characters, it is what makes us feel with them, so what is that book telling a reader (especially a teenager girl) and what does that say about the author (also female)?If he treats you like dirt and humiliates you he secretly likes you? Nothing else matter except for the boy? Granted maybe a lot of teenagers think that way and eventually grow out of it, but still I find this disturbing, especially looking at the way both characters are written. Why are YA authors doing that? Why write your heroine dense instead of smart? Why whiney instead of strong? Why dependent instead of independent? You were all 16 once and I don’t think you would’ve felt good being written like that.Also the boys. Why smirking jerks instead of nice guys? He can be arrogant, he even can be an ass sometimes and do wrong things, but he needs good qualities to balance the bad ones out.I can`t imagine anyone that wants to be treated the way Kiran treated Eden most of the time. Maybe it’s late and maybe I’m reading too much into this, but I read so many books that are written this way that I’m asking myself what is wrong people? Seriously? Yes, it is fiction. Yes, it is fantasy. But come one, shouldn’t there be slight sense of realism? Especially if you want your main character to be the everyday girl your readers can identify with?Okay, I’m boring you enough…if you even read all of this. Gotta stop here, before I’ll write a whole essay, which this basically is.Conclusion: You get my issues, right?Recommendation: I really wouldn’t recommend it, but hey each to their own.. Book 1 in the Best Selling Star Crossed Series 16 year old Eden Matthews has been in and out of private schools for the last two years She can t seem to stop herself from closing them down Kingsley is her last chance to finish high school and the last private school willing to accept her She is focused on just getting through graduation until she realizes Kings Book 1 in the Best Selling Star Crossed Series16 year old Eden Matthews has been in and out of private schools for the last two years She can t seem to stop herself from closing them down Kingsley is her last chance to finish high school and the last private school willing to accept her She is focused on just getting through graduation until she realizes Kingsley is not like the other private schools she s been to The students may be different, but so is she And after meeting Kiran Kendrick, the boy who won t leave her alone and seems to be the source of all her problems, she is suddenly in a world that feels make believe than reality To top it off, she is being hunted by men who want to kill Kiran and her best friend Lilly is taken away to a foreign prison Eden finds herself right in the middle of an ancient war, threatening everything she loves She alone has to find a way to save her best friend and the boy who has captivated her heart Reckless Magic is an intricate story about mystery, adventure, magic and forbidden love Eden Matthews is an unlikely heroine determined to save the world and be with her one, true love before it s too late.. Popular Ebook Reckless Magic This book is quite possibly my favorite book of 2011. I am SO glad the next two books are already out as I plan to devour them asap. Gosh, where to start.Ok, first, Eden. She's so normal! I loved her. If she was a real gal, we'd be best friends. She was shy yet outspoken when it mattered. She was effectively suspicious but loyal. She was loving, with whole heart and body and soul and really, in my opinion there should be no other kind of love. She was sweet, caring, feisty, funny and also seemed to be making someone smile or making someone sigh with exasperation. I loved her!Now on to Kiran. Oh boy. I heard so many people say that they didn't enjoy him or that it took so long for them to, but the whole time he knew who she really was. He was trying to save her, but was so drawn to her that he couldn't resist her at the same time. Yes, he was annoying in the beginning, that was the point! Big picture people. Big picture :) I adored him by the end of the book and though I'm a little hesitant about going into book two because I know that him and Seraphina will have to be back to pretending they are betrothed and Eden will have to watch all that, I can't wait to see how he turns it all around and either makes his father see reason or dethrones him. Please don't disappoint me Rachel!! :)I love their chemistry and how when after all that trying to stay apart stuff was over that they were both all in. Love it!I even liked Talbot a little and hope him and Lily have a sweet reunion, though....he was terd for not standing up for her. So maybe not. Lily was sweeter than pie! And Jericho....I like him. I know something is going down with him....5 Solid, Heart Wrenching, Sweet, Gasping, Lovely stars from me!

  3. It was really hard to rate this book because my feelings are so conflicted For the first half of the book I was really bored and constantly frustrated with everything that was happening Our main character, Eden, is left in the dark about everything going on around her She is full of magic but it keeps exploding out of her and she doesn t know how to control it and no one is informing her about her magic, her family, or the danger she is in I just wanted her to get her act together and try and fi [...]


  4. I would really love to be able to give this book four stars, because it definitely kept me entertained and engrossed in the story and characters But, and I don t know if this is just the edition I got it was free after all there were so many instances of grammar errors typos and flow writing style issues that I feel like I just can t go higher than three The story found within Reckless Magic is filled with adventure, romance, and of course, magic The beginning is a bit slow and there are several [...]


  5. Unfortunately, I have to put this book on the DNF shelf.At 2 hours and 35 minutes in, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING has happened, unless you count numerous unexplained fainting spells as something Nothing happening would be fine if it was because the characters were being developed, but I know as little about Eden now as I did on page one All that being said, I would have kept going, being that this book was described as Twilight meets Harry Potter both awesome , but then this happened I parked my car in t [...]


  6. Rather frustrating heroine Yes, she is only 16 and is pretty naive, but very little growth maturity by the end of the book, if at all Hard to keep cheering her on, especially with all the teenage angst riddled narration from her point of view The plot development is rather weak The characters seem to accept sudden changes and revelations like they are not that big of a deal Sometimes their viewpoints attitudes are conflicting, view spoiler e.g Avalon thanks Kiran for everything with a lot of emo [...]


  7. I loved this book It definitely wasn t the most well written book I ve ever read but it was probably one of the most addicting and fun to read If I were to factor in the predictability and the cliches embedded in both the characters and plot then I would have to drop my rating down to 3.75 5 stars but I honestly cannot do that because of how engrossed I was with the story Absolutely planning on continuing with the series soon and can t wait to see how things carry on in the second book Actual ra [...]


  8. I loved, loved, LOVED this book Reckless Magic is a YA Paranormal that should be read by everyone remotely interested in this genre The characters are well developed and well written I judge books by how they make me feel while I read them I read Reckless Magic at every opportunity in bed, while I was making dinner, riding in the car could not put it down Reckless Magic made me laugh out loud at 2am my husband wasn t thrilled , it made me tear up toward the end and the whole way through I was ro [...]


  9. I actually started reading this book with high hopes While the prologue was pretty generic twin babies being dropped on a door step I thought that it could possibly turn itself around After all, Harry Potter managed to make that scenario interesting too, didn t it And it certainly started strong I really wanted to like the main character Eden But I could tell that the author really wanted Eden to like the main male lead, Kiran Even Eden wondered why she was being pushed into this snot of a boy s [...]


  10. Awesome in a totally unexpected way I downloaded this book on my nook because it was free and it sounded cool I was expecting maybe 100 pages and a easy decent plot spectacular, just a cool free book.Boy was I wrong This book is a whirlwind of all that makes reading awesome The characters were amazing, especially Eden, the main character She was so relatable and awesome She had me laughing out loud quite a bit Her best friend Lily was so sweet, I really liked the way she was described, she wasn [...]


  11. O.M.G this book had me feeling all kinds of aggravated Not in a bad way at alljust with the characters They drove me batty absolutely wanted to knock some heads around And you know those dreams where you are screaming at the top of your lungs but no one is listening That s Eden to a T Poor girl is over looked and unwanted The teachers treat her with disrespect and the students are cruel and mean I will say the girl has an iron tongue, cause if it was me I would have told each and every one of th [...]


  12. I m not sure I understand the high ratings for this book unless of course, most of them just came from young girls who are primarily concerned with the romance in the story And, well, given that this is a YA romance book, that very well may be My primary complaint is that the writing is amateurish It holds promise, but the text feels half baked There are tons of typos, but even worse, there are numerous grammatical and word usage errors An editor and a dictionary would have gone a long way here [...]


  13. Reckless Magic is LITERALLY one of the best books out there Or at least, in my opinion it is haha Rachel Higginson wrote an amazing story that just left me speechlessd cryingd screaming.ly crying though I was really emotional during these books This series deserves 5 stars and so many


  14. I HAVE FEELINGS When I read the synopsis for this story I neither expected what I was in for, nor how completely and utterly in love I would fall with it I finished it like 5 minutes ago and I m still dealing with the amount of emotion flooding through me I consider this one of the best books I have ever read so I made it my mission to convince you to read it as well Here s why THE PLOTMeet Eden, a typical teenage girl who just has a couple of probblems she s a witch, she doesn t know it and she [...]


  15. I m a sucker for shitty, nonsense fantasy fluff, so another bildungsroman style magical universe sounded right up my alley And No I read both this and the next charitably designated novel in the series, as I m largely immune to over the top romance drama appearing in an otherwise seemingly well constructed fantasy world The disappointment factor has been the lack of any judicious editing, specifically in reference to her grammar The author seems to be unable to distinguish between there their th [...]


  16. Stayed up all night reading yes read while I cooked yes Read while my husband drove the car yes What can I say ALL I wanted to do was read this book So the main reason why I loved this book was because I love when a girl has some attitude Like when a boy wants the girl to do one thing and she makes sure she goes out of her way to do the exact opposite Yap that is this girl She does what she wants The set up for the romance for this book was so well thought up it seems like something you would wa [...]


  17. I can t I can t I really can t finish this one Maybe some other time, I m pretty sure that this is a good series but my mind, heart, body and soul is not ready for this one I am so sorry Rachel Higginson.It s not the book, It s me Till we see each other again.



  18. First thoughts Amazing I couldn t put the book down or to be literal my kindle but I was amazed at the never ending intensity of the characters and the issues that were brought along I quite enjoyed meeting Eden, Kiran, and Avalon And the I think of it, there weren t really any characters that I down right hated even if said person was the antagonist The writing itself was wonderful, it flowed smoothly, the plot was perfect and character development definately was planned perfect, I mean who c [...]


  19. I understood the purpose of the Resistance, but the battle I chose to fight would be the one that brought me closer to the man I loved with every fiber of my being Eden Matthews knows that she s going crazy She has to be There is no one else in the world that can set fire to a school, flood another and magically produce huge tropical bees Little does she know that she isn t going crazy She s about to find out that she s different but not in the way she thinks.When she is given a final chance to [...]


  20. I was told by several of my friends what a great book Reckless Magic was It was freaking fantastic Just when I thought I had this book figured out, Rachel threw in a curve ball I never saw coming From the first page to the last word, I was gripping my iPad unable to tear myself away from the heart pounding excitement of Reckless Magic Rachel hits the ground running when she introduces the reader to Eden Matthews Due to her special abilities Eden has been kicked out of several schools feels like [...]


  21. I picked up this book and really didn t think much of it at first, but needless to say that I was pleasantly surprised This is one of those rare books that I just couldn t put down There is no testing of waters as you are plunged in head first into a riveting world of romance, magic and adventure One of the best things about the novel is the complexity of the characters you come to love them while watching them struggle to find their selves You laugh when they laugh You cry when they cry You bec [...]


  22. I m torn For plot it gets 4 stars I liked it But due to some word choice spelling errors this rating should be considered a 3.5 Reckless Magic had a really interesting enjoyable story line, but had its fair share of issues It would benefit greatly from an editing once over I would gladly read the next installment in this quartet.


  23. Simply amazing I loved it It gets you hooked from the first page And if you have Kindle devices free But I would totally pay money for it There are some grammar errors but ehh who cares

  25. This book is a must read.At first, Reckless Magic wasn t at all appealing to me I mean, come on, what s up with the cover So it stayed on my to read list for about a week until my curiosity got the better of me And so it came as a shocker to me when I find out how amazing the book is.Eden Matthew enters a new school which turns out to be her last resort since she either got her last school burned down or flooded But what she doesn t know is that she possesses a great power and is, in fact, a wit [...]


  26. I passed by Reckless Magic twice, until I finally just went ahead anddownloaded it because, hey, it was free It turned out to be one ofthe best decisions I ve made.Reckless starts off a little slow and I wasn t sure I wanted to keepreading The prologue is written in third person and I was a littleworried the whole book would be like that Thankfully it wasn t andthe first chapter was set in our main characters POV, first personPOV that is Eden is one of the better heroines I ve read about and Ica [...]
