Dissapointed and bitter I had higher hopes and expectations from this Now why did you have to go and do that, huh I read this book with half the enthousiasm I had for the first and I couldn t help finding it lacking for me The story was good and the training scenes were interesting, but I missed Jack I missed Jack waayy too much When he left in the end of The Candidates I knew that he would probably get involved in something like that, but not that they would make him into this He s ruthless, cold and with scraps of remorse I was never a huge fan of Cam Yeah he s a good guy and all, but he s kind of flat, colorless Jack had fire, humour and inteligence Ok, he was a bit paranoid at times, but he was right most of the time Now why would anyone do this to him This is not where I had pictured this storyline going and I don t mean it in the fun surprise kind of way either Unless there are some serious changes in the next book like for example Jack redeeming himself and coming back into the story as than a guest star I ll be quiting this series I basically felt this book was pretty much a repeat of the first book with just a slightly different scenario only thing time Jack is not physically by Danica s side and we have an introduction of a new character Barrett In book 1, Danica was initiated into Delcroix Academy, and in this book, she was initiated into the program Cam kind of watches over her and guides her through, while Jack is a constant doubt in her mind I don t think very much changed in this book, and I m disappointed to read a 320 paged ARC to see the story progressed so little This book had such a slow pace, and it wasn t until the end where all the action was did it pick up a bit.I had a huge problem with Danica and thought that after Book 1, she would have grown of a person She s still the same naive, dumb girl who lets a boy just look at her and she s totally lost She was presented with a lot of doubts, but she lets all of that slide by and does nothing about it until it s too late I had expected her to be stronger after everything she has been through.As for Cam, I ve never thought he was swoon worthy There s just something off about Cam, and I just don t trust him I wish there was to him that would just sweep me off my feet, but there wasn t I understand that Mr Judan has given him a lot, but I just find it so hard to believe that such a leader would be such sheep, following orders without question.I did like Barrett though his grand exit really disappointed me I was hoping there was a reasoning behind his carefree ways, but I was just hoping he would play a important role in the book than giving up, especially since there are so few with the earth affinity.Overall, I thought this was an okay read I didn t like it, but I didn t dislike it either It just didn t leave a lasting impression on me because it had pretty much the same storyline and plot progression as the first book.

Well, what do you know This book actually turned out better than I thought Yay I wasn t really thrilled over the first book, the Candidates or the Talents , from Inara Scott s Delcroix Academy series There really wasn t anything new to the idea of the whole school for kids with special abilities Yes, very X Men like, but the Marked turned this typical urban fantasy story to a whole other level Not exactly as ground breaking as I want a book to be but this was better and eventful than the first book.I experienced a whole new perspective over the characters in this book, particularly Jack and Catherine Jack, who was Dancia s best friend even though their moments as best friends in the Candidates wasn t really elaborated, kind of feels unrealistic since I didn t feel them really bond or anything other than what was narrated in the book , takes on becoming the bad boy that everyone thought he d be I can t understand his motives though There s something missing, some details I think, I don t know Anyway, I m a little bummed that he went on to the dark side or just the opposing team, dark side might be too harsh, then again maybe not whatever Now Catherine, on the other hand, is now my girl friend, best friend even She may have been a little insufferable and annoying and kind of irrelevant during the first book but here I got to see the other side of her that s a lot interesting and I love her Cathy, give me a hug On second thought, never mind, I won t be hearing the end of it.Dancia, our protagonists, is the youngest amongst those within the Program This means she has to work twice as hard to show she s worth being a part of it Now since she s still struggling to control her power and the fact that some of students who are part of the Program don t seem to trust her, Dancia is in turmoil of stress poor girl As much as I sympathize though, I still can t get the whole Cam and Dancia fever I just don t buy it Why don t I buy it Why don t I feel all giddy and mushy I always feel that way when I m totally rooting for the couples when I read about their short stolen moments Why aren t you two Dancia and Cam pulling this off I didn t exactly like how flat and vague the ending of the Candidates went about, but I m glad the plot and execution of the Marked made the cliff hanger from the first book worth enduring I m happy to see some action I ve been waiting for to finally happen and a big hooray to the whole Team Dancia versus Teamuh wait, what s his name O gosh, I forgot Anyway, the Team Dancia versus Team Bad Guys I m sorry, I really can t remember Wow that was bad I m saying it s a good part but I can t remember the names of the charactersAwkward scenes were great Now the last part of the book gave out this moment where someone from Delcroix is not the person he she says he she is, and our good guys Dancia and company are out to change things and make things right for all those of them who have talents , also to fulfil the purpose they were set out to do protect human kind the right way So Book III, please be awesome For of my reviews, please visit my blog The Blair Book Project www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com Here is why I enjoyed this book so much Dancia has real thoughts and feelings I don t understand when people say she s weak or is mean to her friends Her thoughts come naturally to her She is strong in that she tries to use her power when she knows she can accidentally injure people in the process Her thinking her friends have quirks is only natural because I honestly observe people around me and honestly don t have the best thoughts of people and I never state them because they will hurt feelings I do think there is stil something good in store in the future It has a good beginning nonetheless The Candidates is a good ride in reading that has to take its time to conclude so you see its true thrilling suspense and supernatural elements It was only one book in the series and like an opener to see what it deals with I just love books in paranormal genres, so this doesn t let down at all You should definitely read this book and get ,The Marked, the next book in the series I am sure you ll enjoy it. THE FAERYS VIEWThe Marked Delcroix 2 by Inara Scott is the second installment in the The Delcroix Academy series The first book, The Candidates, was one of my favorite books of 2010 Ms Scott does a spectacular job in this paranormal romance filled with danger, thrills, mystery and intrigue an oh, let s not forget swoon worthy romance The Marked is one of those books that is difficult to put down, most of the same characters are present from The Candidated Delcroix Academy, Book 1 so I had a sense that I knew most of the people present that I knew and loved or disliked The narrative was fantastic with just the right amount of tension to keep me turning pages deep into the night In true Inara Scott style there were shocks and thrills throughout and rarely a dull moment.Dancia remains at Delacroix with her loyal girlfriends and of course, Cam the love of her life Dancia still isn t trusted by some of the eldest watchers who believe she helped Jack get away after stealing 2 valuable books from the counsel library from the first book She still misses Jack who she believes is innately good but had a rough life and holds people at bay for fear of getting hurt There is still danger lurking around Delcroix Academy, specifically a powerful group of kids with powers that are out to destroy the Academy and they don t care who gets hurt They are called The Irin and they form cells that work co dependently together all over the world under a man named Gregori, the problem is they are getting bolder in their attacks and they have some serious talent.The fight to save Delcroix Academy and even their very own lives against Gregori and his Irin followers has everyone on edge Ms Scott does a marvelous job of displaying how fear can either bring people together or push them apart I am as much, if not , invested in the characters and actually care about them as if they were my own friends or enemies this is how beautifully Ms Scott depicts her characters The plot weaves in its twists and turns when you least expect them and keeps the book flowing and exciting until the very end I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series THE FAERY SAYS THE MARKED BY INARA SCOTT MADE MY WINGS A FLUTTER As becomes evident in my original review of The Candidates by Inara Scott I was very excited to get my hands on this novel, its sequel However, after having finished it I must admit that I am a bit disappointed.The largest problem that I had with this book is that I felt that there was a disconnect between what was going on in the plot of the book and the emotional development surrounding these parts There was one specific part of the book chapter 15 where Danica was training in the woods and something that she perceived as being terrible happened but I personally didn t understand why it was such a big deal solely because I don t think that the terror and horror that she was experiencing during it was as developed as it needed to be The dialogue, of this part especially, felt too robotic and unnatural for my liking Further, I was extremely confused by Jack s behaviour in this book which broke my heart because he MADE the series for me I didn t understand why he ran hot one moment joking around with Danica as if they hadn t been separated by time and their differing circumstances and cold the next to well, not joking doing something far, far serious.That being said, I did appreciate that the secondary characters of this series Trevor, Anna, Hennie Esther and Catherine played a larger part yes, I said CATHERINE never did I expect to actually like that girl I thought they helped to liven up the story whether it be through their humor or seeing their abilities slowly start to develop I also loved Barrett, the newly introduced male character in this book, I d have to say that he is my most favourite male character after Jack and Yashir I like Yashir a lot because he reminds me of Samuel from The Glee Project.All in all, while I was a tad disappointed by this installment of the series I WILL continue on with it with the cliffhanger ish ending of this book you d be crazy not to. Overall, though the first book was passable, this one just kind of disintegrated into a mess of paranormal love triangles and supernatural vendettas The characters devolved, and there was the sense of the storyline being repeated with slightly different elements I just couldn t get into The Marked , even though I did valiantly struggle to the end.While some authors can make love triangles work, unfortunately, I felt that Scott could not If anything, I think what really bothered me the most was the fact that all the female characters identified through their relationships with men Now, recently, there was a study done that said that women overwhelmingly define themselves through their relationships with other people and not necessarily by the sense of the actual self What I saw here not only backed that study up, but really disappointed me in that all of the girls seemed sad and powerless without their boys in their lives There was only one small moment without Cam or Jack where Dancia actually seemed happy and that was over pretty quickly Otherwise She was mourning for her lost friendship with Jack or worried that Cam would consider her a traitor for missing her best friend, who happens to be male, and who may or may not be a potential love rival.What s worse, one of the characters actually starts breaking down under the pressure of not being able to snag a boy but implied that said pressure was caused on purpose to make her talent grow I can t get past that At first I thought I could take that into account with everything else another band of supernaturally talented children challenging the Delacroix Program, etc , but the I think about it, the angry I get.It s hard enough being a girl in Western culture right now I grew up in the 90s and it was easier, but not by much But now we ve got books like this having male teachers practically torturing the MC to make her talent grow , and then having the message and I hope this was unintentional that you ll be sad if you see all of your friends getting boyfriends when you don t Yeah, okay, in real life, that happens But it seemed like it was pushed to the extreme here, and I m not okay with that It had such a heterosexist slant at times I had to reread parts of it to be sure I was interpreting things correctly there were no queer characters, and while YA is still growing in that area, this book feels like a throw back to the bad old days where we don t talk about queer people at all All the girls are getting a man, or they re sad and weak or literally shapeshift to get one This is what makes girls self injure Books like this don t help them feel stronger, it makes them hate themselves This is why we have the highest numbers in self injury that we ve had in the past 20 years This is why girls starve and cut and burn themselves because of messages, whether intentional or not, like this.Overall, disappointed and disgusted While I thought that the Big Reveal Big Bad would make up for things at first, under further consideration in the face of everything I ve talked about here, just didn t If the author can make the love triangle work and have it make sense, I m fine with it Here, all I saw was a girl considered as weak and then being exploited because she was considered weak The plot was contrived I won t be reading the third book, and I wish I could have the time back that was spent reading this one posted to goodreads, shelfari, and birthofanewwitch.wordpress.com SpoilersThe plot was boring, the main character was an insufferable bitch, the romance was blah and it was all so predictable and unimaginative Dancia was a dull, indecisive, whiny, unremarkable girl yet everyone around her thought she was speshul snowflake..ugh She was so dumb and annoying all she did was throw herself into dangerous situations and make everything ten times worse I really started to hate the bitch when she ditched her friend to hang out with her boyfriend, Cam She felt guilty and knew her friend was upset and lonely..but did she make time for her friend Nope, the selfish cow carried on ignoring her for Cam And then when said friend started to hang out with a bunch of guys because she had no one else, Dancia got all judgmental about it..ugh, she was vile One of the worst things about Dancia was how she acted like a fucking doormat and let Cam treat her like shit she had no self respect.I was pissed when Dancia killed Jack, she could have stopped him from hurting her friends some other way but the stupid cow killed him For someone she supposedly cared about, Dancia gets over killing Jack really quickly he wasn t even a bad guy he was just confused and angry She doesn t feel guilty at all, I m hoping he s not dead and he comes back and kills the bitch Cam came across as very sleazy and manipulative he kept things from Dancia, lied to her and got angry with her whenever she asked questions He just expected Dancia to trust him implicitly when he d done nothing to earn her trust I wouldn t be surprised if it turns out that he s been using his persuasion powers on Dancia to shut her up He acts like a douche and treats Dancia like shit but Dancia is always the one who apologises to him and admits she s wrongugh He thought it was perfectly ok to lie and hide things but when Dancia doesn t tell him every little thing he has hissy fits he was a dick and a half He s fine bossing Dancia around and acting all alpha but when it comes to his boss, Judan, he acts like a lapdog he can t form opinions of his own and he thinks everything Judan tells him is the truth so he s a dick without a backbone He s an awful love interest Trevor and Esther s non relationship had far chemistry than Dancia and Cam s I might have actually enjoyed the book if it had been from Esther s POV Catherine, Dancia s roommate, was one of the few decent characters Unlike Dancia, she actually had common sense, self respect and ambition I was surprised that there was actually a couple of female characters that weren t painted as shallow whores There was yet another mean girl that hated the heroine just because she was dating a guy she liked Apparently YA authors think that most girls are all boy crazy, petty, jealous shrews that bully any girl that s interested in their ex or their crush In reality those kind of girls are very few and far between and they re never as bad as YA fiction portrays them Unfortunately authors prefer to demonize most female characters in order to make their dull heroine seem likeable.Just another standard YA book with cookie cutter characters, poor world building, rubbish dialogue and a forgettable plot I doubt I ll read the next book.
