Review ~ Falling Light by Dayana Morency

28696054Title: Falling Light

Author: Dayana Morency

Release date: March 8th 2016

Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Book Description:

This will be the summer of love . . . and death.

When seventeen-year-old Rosalynn Young pictured her summer vacation, she didn’t think she would be spending it working as a maid at the Millennium Hotel. She imagined painting and gardening. But soon, in spite of her disappointment, she meets Victor Gregoire. Wayward and enigmatic, he sends a chill up her spine. Everything about him feels foreign–unearthly.

Dangerously drawn to Victor, Rosalynn willfully ignores his volatile mood swings. When she impulsively enters Victor’s room, she finds a journal dating back to the 19th Century and a photograph of him from August 14, 1874.

He’s hiding something sinister and she’s desperate to find out what, even if it means risking everything. But Rosalynn fails to realize that her attraction to Victor comes at a price and she soon learns some secrets are better kept hidden.

She’s in for the summer job of a lifetime.

Review

This book just had WAY too many similarities to Twilight for me to enjoy it that much. I will explain but fair warning this review DOES contain spoilers so don’t read this is you don’t want to know.

 

****SPOILERS****

Okay so here are the reasons that I am giving this book such a low rating:

  1. Okay so here are the plot points that are exactly the same as Twilight:
  • Almost rape scene
  • Having a meal (In Twilight it was a dinner…but just changing the time doesn’t matter)
  • AND having the reveal in the forest

Seriously if those had been gone or written a different way than it wouldn’t be so bad…but they weren’t. Then there is the insta-love….I HATE INSTA-LOVE!!! It’s really just a ridiculous thing. I enjoy the slow burning romances that get you in all the right feels before the True Love happens, because that’s just more believable and enjoyable. Victor is also an ASS, I mean, he didn’t even like humans so how could he possible care for Rosalynn and he kept secrets that were unnecessary and threw A LOT of tantrums. My own children don’t even throw tantrums that ridiculous. Seriously. He doesn’t even do a good job of protecting her. WORST BOYFRIEND EVER!!!!

So in conclusion, it may have a decent mythology base but I don’t recommend reading it if you have already read Twilight. If you haven’t then this book will be great for you.

*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
