Blog Tour: Iridescent by Carol Oates [ARC Review & GIVEAWAY]

PUB DATE: October 16th 2012
By: Omnific Publishing
Pages: 237
Source: Publisher for Blog Tour
Summary: [Goodreads / Amazon]
Candra Ember used to dream of saving the world one person at a time. She never expected to become an angelic weapon and the last hope in the battle against ultimate darkness.
Falling for a Nephilim wasn't part of Sebastian’s plan. Distraction is something he can't afford when his rival, Draven, wants what Sebastian has.
Lies, manipulation, and corruption are twisting the lives of the citizens in Acheron. The Arch is missing from Heaven, and a demon is intent on claiming the city. At a time they should be growing closer, grief and paranoia is driving Candra and Sebastian apart.
If the price of restoring the Watchers to Heaven is a human soul, who deserves to be saved?
My thoughts (Lisseth):
"This book was GREAT! This was a great sequel and the PERFECT ending to to a story. It had love, action, hard decisions, and an ending that will BLOW YOUR MIND AWAY!!"
Okay going into this book I was SUPER excited. Especially with this AWESOME cover! If you haven't read the first book, then check out my review over here! But let me just say the first one was captivating and filled with action. And the second one did NOT disappoint! [will try NOT to spoil this book!]
One of the things I LOVE about this author is that she can create really smooth and realistic twists. I mean I did NOT expect that first twist at the beginning...I mean @_@ complete mind shock. Candra grows on me & I LOVED how her relationship with BOTH Draven & Sebastian. It's complex YET not to complicated to follow.
I LOVED that the author also kept a lot of the different POVs. So you not only saw the book play out through Candra's eyes BUT through Sebastian's, [HES MY FAVORITE POV] and Draven. All of the original & some new ones really made the story flow. I Liked that Lilith was still here and that she was still badass and EVIL. She is ruthless and was crazy as ever ^_^
The ENDING..WOAH @_@
I did not see it coming! It had the same complexity and action as the ending in the first book! I completely LOVED it! But...OH.MY.GOD!! Carol Oates made me feel SO MANY things again. I was sad, then sorta-happy, then utterly destroyed, then completely HAPPY!!! >_< And then she goes and MESSES WITH YOUR MIND!!!! I was literally a mess, in a GOOD way. Because you DON'T EXPECT IT.
And then...then, I was STRUCK SPEECHLESS because ALL of a sudden it changes and BAM! Happiness again and it was REALLY Sweet! It all worked out in the end BUT DANG, SO MUCH had to happen for it to end good. *phew*
Overall I EXTREMLY LOVED this book! My review might not be the best because the truth is YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK to comprehend the AWESOMENESS!! I think it's the last one [HOPING IT IS, because the ending was PERFECT!] You must read it!!So 5/5 golden feathers.

  2. I like your review and the description of the book - but the cover model with her mouth randomly open is kind of bothering me for some reason. Oh well, it shouldn't distract from what is underneath the cover.
