Synopsis: Thea, all-mighty Mother Earth, only had one
rule to follow above all else, one promise to keep to her brother: never take a
human form. She would’ve kept that promise if it weren’t for Brice. He’s
handsome and confident, but above all he’s merciless.

He’s also a
hunter who has tormented Thea for years. She believes if she could teach Brice
compassion, she might finally be able to save her creations and herself from
his savage ways. Then she meets Chamber: another hunter.

She soon finds
herself fascinated by−and torn between−the two boys: Brice and Chamber. Lost within
a torrent of human emotions, Thea starts to lose who she is as she falls in
love with the one thing that she’s always hated: a hunter… a human.

Review: Isn’t
that just a beautiful cover? I chose this book for that reason – and also
because I liked the idea of such a unique point of view.

I think the point of view was handled wonderfully. Seeing
things from the eyes of Mother Nature was interesting, especially as she took
human form for the first time and was exploring everything human. She quickly gets
wrapped up in human emotions, which is something she thought she’d be able to
distance herself from. And then we learn something else: her father is God.

I really liked seeing things from Thea’s point of view,
and she was my second favourite character. I half expected her to be the whiny
sort of person, especially as things she had previously planned weren’t going
according to her wants. But she didn’t turn out to be that person. There were a
few moments of confusion for her on the side as she figured out things about
being human, but otherwise she reviewed her situation and tried to make the
smartest choice, even though it didn’t always work out for her.

My favourite character was May. She’s the typical low cut
shirts, super short shorts girl who throws herself at Brice, and at first I
didn’t like her. But gradually her true self emerges and I was able to see her
for who she really was, and I liked her :3

This is the typical love triangle story and although
there is another plot line going as well (the main one) the love triangle is a
huge part of it. If you don’t like them, then this isn’t for you. I didn’t
really mind in this story because both relationships were different, and one
was more forced onto Thea than the other. It kind of made the love triangle one
that she wasn’t trying to be part of, and that made it seem less cliché.

The plot was… different? Kind of like the point of view
choice. It was a bit slow and took a while to get to the point, but once it did
I was surprised. A lot of things happened that I didn’t think was going to
happen at all, and it had me reading further to find out what was happening.

Overall this was a well written book, and the author was
definitely trying to do something new here. I liked it. 🙂
