    A 4.5 Review There comes a moment in everyones life so I assume when you realize you have officially lost your marbles I actually thought that moment came last month when I openly admitted to a friend that I was in love with a mute bright blue alien don t ask but apparently I was wrong This weekend, like most weekends or every freaking day if I m being honest I decided all I wanted to do was read I had a list of things on my TBR that needed to be knocked out before next month, and naturally I was behind The first and probably the most important time wise was this book, Seeds of Discovery, which I very reluctantly agreed to review as a part of a blog tour This should be easy I boasted from my couch It s only 290 pages I can read this in a few hours And then move on to Hopeless I squealed to my husband who was not listening to me AT ALL Damn non readers 8 hours later, my husband emerged from his man cave and noticed I had not moved an inch I thought you said that book would only take you a few hours he gasped Hmmm so I guess he was listening Ummm I mumbled hoping he d just see this as a do not disturb sign and move along Again, I was wrong which seems to be the theme for this review Misty What s up he says again And this is the part where I realize I m obsessed completely insane I did finish that book I m on the 3rd one looks at floor What do you mean on the 3rd one FYI, he totally used finger quotes while saying that Umm yep, umm, again I m a woman of many words Here s the thing honey I said very sweetly Turns out Seeds of Discovery was really freaking good, so I bought the other 3 books in the series and I m the 3rd right now smiles, braces for angry face Wait, WHAT I said turns out Yeah, yeah I got that I m having a hard time grasping the fact that you just read 3 books in 8 hours You need therapy And so goes the story of how my obsession with reading a really good series has finally, irrevocably caused me to lose my marbles and by marbles I mean sanity because I didn t sleep at ALL Would you like to hear the math It s pretty astounding That s 1,503 pages of castle hoping awesomeness in a total of 27 hours Take THAT speed readers Whose your mama now Anyways here is a little about the book that took over my life.Quinn Robbins has never noticed William Rose at Bristlecone High School not until the night she almost runs him down in her car After that, she never stops noticing him Because William is different than the other boys Why does a high school senior always have his nose buried in medical journals And how does he keep disappearing down by the river every Friday night When William starts to show up in her dreams, she is unsure if her curiosity has turned into obsession or if there is something mysterious going on Unable to rest, Quinn follows William to the river one Friday night and discovers something startling something she thought could only exist in a fairytale.Uh oh, Quinn 1st Period History will never be the same Ok, so here is the thing that synopsis makes SoD sound like one big whopping smooch fest But it s not that is reserved for book 3 where things get crazy complicated and I tear up a little Instead there is very little love and tons of fantastic The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe esq type world building Quinn bless her poor little heart is just way too dang suspicious for her own good Because of this she ends up in a land that is not her own Colorado Pfft who needs it A land that is decidedly old school Castles Kings No modern medicine You following me SoD introduces you quite brilliantly to that world.The people The scenery which actually gets detailed in book 2 The evil wanna be king that doesn t understand that no means no.It is essentially a set up book for the rest of the rip roaring stupendous series, but that doesn t mean it didn t pull its own weight Obviously, or I would have moved on Instead it was a fast paced, mysterious, totally engaging way to start a series.More importantly I freaking loved every dang character which is a rarity all in itself I could easily discern each of their attitudes allowing me to tap into their emotions Making the read that much enjoyable two thumbs up for awesome characterization skills It was literally the perfect length It sucked you in without wearing you out It had just the right amount of suspense And left you hanging without leaving your crippled.Add a dash of hostile enemy take over and lots of stitches and what you get is the total package for fantasy lovers One that I am very glad I was self forced to read.And for those of you that are wondering the series got better with every book Get it, Live it, Love it Pass it on Happy Reading my fellow Kindle ites and remember You can sleep when you re dead.

    What I liked about it the book starts off like a typical YA novel high school, popular guys, not so popular girl but then it surprises you.how sensible the female lead was.it was the perfect length.ended at just the right place.What I didn t like about it lack of details I never thought I d been the way to notice that The flora fauna unique to the kingdom were not described in too much detail A good book to curl up with and spend some hours of relaxed reading.

    I really wanted to love this book because I liked the writing style and the characters but the story itself just kind of left me wantingwanting excitement or conflict or action or something As I read, I just kept waiting for something to happen to suck me in, to make me excited to keep reading The story started off intriguing, but once Quinn solved the mystery of what happened to William, it became a little too low key for me I was intrigued by the world Quinn finds herself in and the people there but I wanted to happen Also, I know this is the first book in a series, but the story just ended I felt like it was unfinished It almost felt like this was the first half of a book rather than a complete book in and of itself.All in all it s not a bad book but it s not outstanding either I am curious, however, to see what happens with Quinn and her friends, both old and new I don t know what Ms Puttroff has in store for the next book but since this one isn t all that long, I wonder if putting the two together into a larger novel might not be a better move.

    11 24 2011 Seeds of Discovery by Breeana Puttroff is a fun book Quinn is a teenage girl that finds a bridge to an alternate world named Eirentheos, a beautiful medieval world that seems to have no crime or pollution The first half of the book, I was beginning to think that characters were to unbelievably nice perfect to be plausible, but then in steps the villain Tolliver, and from there the story really took off for me.I finished this book in a day, and really enjoyed the plot Quinn has a love interest in 3 different men that will play out in future books, along with her adventures in Eirentheos On a final note, I feel this is a series, and author you will want to follow.I received the e book for free through the author Breeana Puttroff, and Smashwords.com for a fair and honest review.

    This one is hard for me to review Mostly because I liked the idea and the writing style was nice and easy to get into but there was just something off I am not really sure how to explain it The plot seemed very light for lack of better word I was always waiting for something Like I was waiting for the emotional attachment for the characters to kick in They were likable but didn t really draw me in Or I was waiting for the meat of the plot to kick in but the end of the story happened with some oh have you ever though of this answers and we are saying see you at school on Monday The end I just felt that there could have been to it In the beginning the Quinn starts obsessing about a boy, William, who previously had been just another body in school During this time she is crushing on Zander an old family friend and preparing to go to a dance with him She starts following William after she sees him walking down towards the river which to her seems like a strange place for someone to walk She does follow him on a friday night or two and eventually follows him to another dimension by walking off the end of a broken bridge Seems a little drastic for your average curiosity Later in the story the author refers to this time as as weeks of obsession and following William around I just didn t get that feeling It didnt seem that drastic to me or that involved I guess Then while she is in the other dimension, every few days she has a thought about Zander with a pang ofsomething Not sure what I personally didn t get the feeling that it was all that much of an obsession, nor that there was a strong attachment to either character It was very quick and I wasn t so engaged with the characters that I really cared much about any of them at that point Quinn was just following her curiosity but i didn t get that feeling of obsession or that much about her feelings The world building was ok I liked the new dimension and Quinn explained about everything she saw as she went along The character relationships however weren t developed at all Some reading emotions in their eyes there and feeling a warm flush here, but I didn t really get a sense of what the main character was feeling towards each person I am not sure what William was supposed to be as for the most part he ignored her Which kind of makes sense since they went to school together but apparently don t know each other at all save for Quinn s obsession which again wasn t very deep Thomas was very helpful and charming and so was Linnea and the other characters were really nice and had many a warm expression in their eyes when they looked at Quinn I just didn t feel what the attachment was supposed to be Did she care about Thomas and Linnea What was going on with William, was he supposed to be a love interest, new friend just the person that she followed She left for her dimension without much being said and with a warm thought as she was returning to Zander As for the storyline itself I didn t realize the main plot was the illness, I just figured that was a side story Most of the time was spent on talking about the new dimension, what it was like and the naming ceremony There was some conflict with Tolliver and then all of a sudden she is off on a quest to figure out the answer to the mysterious illness But she wasn t really She was just sent away to keep her out of Tollivers reach, so wasn t that the main story line Then all of a sudden she is solving the problem that two doctors and many others familiar with the world couldn t figure out Go home, The end Nothing else about Tolliver or any of the other characters introduced in the beginning For the most part the story had promise It just needed .

    An enjoyable fast flowing young adult novel with interesting characters, intriguing situations, and a fascinating fantasy world, Breeana Puttroff s The Seeds of Discovery is a good opening novel to the author s intended trilogy The story has a good mix of completeness and mystery by its end, leaving this reader both satisfied and ready for .The heroine is suitably ordinary no super powers, nor super wisdom or strength She makes very real mistakes in her actions and her relationships, making her a pleasing real world anchor as the tale moves into a parallel universe Several young men attract her attention, and she finds it plausibly hard to care about all of them at once.Some of the mysteries are too easily solved with super intelligent William and Nathaniel makes less than intelligent assumptions, but the story carries readers easily through these minor irritations After all, nobody s perfect There s a perfect villain of course who I m sure will reappear And there s a nice enveloping tale of the real world Quinn, her school, family and friends, and their small town with babysitting, movies and the real world needs of real teens.I enjoyed Quinn s responses to her parallel life and found myself sufficiently intrigued to wonder how time runs there and here and whether there might be bridges between our worlds Seeds of Discovery isn t perfect, but it s good enough to make me want to read .Disclosure I received a free ecopy of this novel from Lightning Book Promotions in exchange for my honest review.

    Quinn is a normal teenage girl One day she is driving and she sees a car crash She pulls over to help and sees a boy from her school already helping She calls the police but before the police get there the boy runs away from the scene After it happened she started paying attention to him alot at school to see what he was up to One day while she was following him he led her to a secret passage to another world In the new world she has many adventures like being part of special ceromonies and helping people in a hospital.I rated this book 1 star because it really sucked it was one of the worst books I have ever read It was very boring with the exception of the first couple chapters It was poorly writen and does not hold your interest very well.I probably would not reccoment this book to anyone unless you are accepting of most books.
