Scintillate came as a real surprise for me I didn t expect anything of it I thought the premise sounded interesting and just decided to give it a try But wow though I had a few issues with the novel it was actually very good and I m very much looking forward to reading the seuel hopefully soon The concept of seeing auras was brilliant and the world building very round and fulfilling in my eyes There was no infodumping at all it all flows very smoothly along with the plot Here we meet young Cora who has lived a pretty Diccionario trilingüe Miskitu - Sumu-Mayangna - Español uneventful lifentil she ends The Very First Christmas Stocking the Gifts of the 7 Coins up in hospital with a mysterious illness and suddenly sees a bright light around people They each glow with different colors according to their moods personalities secrets they keep love they share and so on First Cora s afraid something might be wrong with her She shares her fear and her confusing new ability with her father who is the ever present overprotective constant in her life But he only comesp with lame excuses and doesn t take her seriously It takes a while Twisted (LOST, until Cora figures out what s really wrong with her vision While Cora discovers that there is a whole new world waiting for her to be discovered she also meets Finn As you can read in the blurb it s a severe case of insta attraction if not even insta love at least from Finn s side BUT this is perfectly well explained by the end of the novel I found it a little bit disturbing most of the time which is also my only issue with the book Finn was a little bit creepy It s absolutely comprehendible that Cora falls for him as she s so inexperienced when it comes to guys But hey waitntil you ve met his mother Then you know where all the creepiness comes from I d sort of hoped that she wouldn t see him ever again but I already knew when she went to Ireland that all hope would be in vainI thought Giovanni was much swoon worthy even though he seems to carry a few secrets of his own just like everybody else With the appearance of Giovanni who becomes a very important person for Cora and her personal est in Ireland the story speeds p again There wasn t a boring moment in this book it s full of twists and turns and keeps you on the edge wanting to find out what happens nextI would love to read about Dun and Mari in the next book Cora s best friends and characters who seem to have much to offer than their role in Scintillate Also Cora s grandma Tulki seems to be ite an interesting character and I m sure she ll be thoroughly introduced in the seuelI have to add that I really liked Clark s writing it was simply and easy to read but still beautiful His certainty irritated me How do you know Do you know where she is The words dropped from my lips like petals Fragile Easily crushed I held my breath I can only recommend this book to all YA lovers as it is one OF MY BIGGEST BOOK SURPRISES OF 2014 IT UESTIONS my biggest book surprises of 2014 estions definition of humanity and tells the story of a girl who needs to cope with her role in the greater scheme of the world learning how to make her own decisions I hope Scintillate and Tracy Clark will get a lot of attention because this book definitely deserves it So there remains only one A Fearless Heart : Why Compassion is the Key to Greater Wellbeing uestion when will the seuel be released I ve had the privilege of advance reading this selection and readers you are in for a treat Steamy romance aniue premise and a charming heroine makes for an intriguing read I m trying to figure out why people love it What might have been once successful with Edward and Bella as pure wish fulfillment of teenage Soap Making Bible unicorns and dragons dreams

me excited in a long time I went in with trepidation aboutexcited in a long time I went in with trepidation about let down as I have so many times recently only to have my expectations surpassed The world created is truly astounding in scale and I really got a feel for Ireland and a clear picture in my mind from Clark s prose I was encased in to the world and didn t want to leave The characters themselves where so well written with depth and many sides to them the inner strength in Cora was inspirational and all of the characters jumped off the page Clark is the first author to be able to Rabbit Wishes use UKIrish slang words and swear words and not throw them in everytime the character speaks I really grew to love the characters purely from how well they where written and how relateable and humanised they where The world building is concise but powerful and the background is presented in an interesting and engaging way and we learn everything as Cora does The pace of the book is fast and flows smoothly from location to location and plot point to plot point The mythology that is the main point of Scintillate isniue and Cloudwish (The Six Impossiverse unlike anything else in the YA genre and truly drew me and intrigued me I wanted to know everything about it and we learned the mythology at the same time Cora does as she goes along we learnt and you have all the sameestions as Cora does This prevented the book from having pages laying out the mythology hurriedly or in excruciating detail We learned everything Split Second Choice uickly concisely and it didn tpset the flow or bore you to death Scintillate is however truly heart breaking in places You never see any of the plot twists coming you never know what s going to happen next and everything is a shock The ground has been laid for what looks to be the continuation of a rich mythology and plot as well as what could be an intriguing and complex plot Scintillate has a story all of it s own with a point to make as well as setting p the next book but setting p the next book is merely an In the Making undercurrent and not the main focus of the book as it is with so many first books Scintillate is the book that has given me hope for the YA Supernatural genre when I was despairing of everything being the same Scintillate is a refreshing andniue read truly Moving Neutral (Moving Neutral, uniue to the genre with complex and intriguing mythology woven in to a complex mystery of a plot Scintillate will make you laugh make you cry make you go aaww and make you mad the hallmarks of a truly brilliant author are all present when you find yourself so invested in the characters of the book andnable to put it down as I was I didn t want it to end I wanted to know everything and I ve found myself gutted by the wait Switches and Circuits until the next book And that s the good news folksthis is the first in a trilogy so get ready because Scintillate is the first installment of a trilogy which promises to be a roller coaster ride of emotion full of intrigue and potentially one of the best trilogies of the year You don t want to miss out I m off to mourn the wait for the next book and try to find a book to matchp to thisI think that will be impossible.
