Amy Kathleen Ryan ´ 5 Free read Free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Amy Kathleen Ryan Summary Glow Author Amy Kathleen Ryan Ws she must marry young in order to have children who can carry on the mission and Kieran the handsome captain to be has everything Waverly could want in a husband Everyone is sure he’s the best choice Still there’s a part of Waverly that wants from life than marriage and she is secretly intrigued by the shy darkly brilliant SethSuddenly Waverly’s dreams are interrupted by the inconceivable – a violent betrayal by the Empyrean's sister ship the New Horiz. 25 stars I like to be unsettled by books I mean this in the sense that I appreciate books that shock surprise and challenge me Books that demand my attention when I m away from them that creep into my thoughts after I ve closed the covers I like Kafka s idea that books should be an axe for the frozen sea inside us But there was something wholly unpleasant about the ueasy stomach I was left with at the end of Glow and the way I wanted to brush my arms as if I could sweep away the feeling of something crawling on my skin Arguably a strong emotional reaction is a good thing Better to have feelings that tend heavily one direction than to feel underwhelmed and decidedly meh about the whole thing in my opinion But in this case it s proving difficult for me to step back and simply respect the skill it took to create such feelings which I do because it s hard shake my instinctive revulsion to the events of Glow This is a dark story that deals with complex often unpleasant subject matter So brava Ryan for choosing to write a story that tackles heavy themes and does not shy away from taking unexpected turns and doesn t replace plot with vapid love triangle angsting This is certainly not Matched In Space I won t write a synopsis but take some general ideas from Lord of the Flies manipulative zealots and a pervasive atmosphere of sexual threat put them in deep space and you ll be in the ballpark of the premise Initially I did not enjoy the writing I found it thick and impenetrable preventing me from connecting with the action or the characters While this eventually changed and it captured my full attention I had to push myself through the first half and fight my waning interest However this is likely down to my personal taste rather than a criticism of the mechanics of the writing The latter half of the book is fairly dense with a sense of claustrophobia and mounting dread The situations the characters are in are awful and kept me in a near constant state of unease Also it s an interesting experience to read a book where I feel repulsed by almost all of the characters In fact it s probably the unrelenting gloom the persistent evil to varying degrees of a large number of the characters that made it difficult to read When I eventually began to connect with the writing I then felt trapped by anxiety at the direction the plot threads were takingTo be fair though this driving of the story and characters further and further down a frightening path sets the stage well for the seuel Rather than dropping in a last minute cliffhanger Ryan has crafted a finale in which the characters identities and motivations are so much at odds with each other that it sparks genuine curiosity at how they will ever achieve some kind of peace amongst themselves if at all Essentially the book leaves the unpleasant feeling that things are very very wrong and not a whisper of a clue as to how they can become right again While the cover of the UKAus edition is reminiscent of Across the Universe and there are some surface level similarities the tone and execution is vastly different Glow is a disuieting book The content is uite heavy and writing at times distancing However it does leave an impact and raise some interesting stakes for a continuation of the series Ritual Power Healing and Community young in order to have children who can carry on the mission and Kieran the

I graciously received GLOW from a Goodreads First Reads Giveaway and the book was provided by the publishers St Martin s Press Thank you all for this wonderful opportunity Actually this is closer to three and a half stars but I don t do half stars so it s fourThere are some books out there that are completely clear in their intentions whose characters are completely either good or evil whose plot is simple enough to be easily understood Let me tell you know that GLOW is not one of those books GLOW is not a book you sit down to read intending to finish it in one sitting and move on with your life GLOW is one of those books you sit down to read intending to savor it and become engrossed in the not so clear intentions of the characters and the constant twists and turns of the plotGLOW is written in third person perspective something which doesn t enhance anything about it and seems to kind of disconnect you from the narrator characters The reader feels emotionally attached to a character who speaks from the first person perspective because you think What if I was experiencing this With third person perspective you think someone else is experiencing it and you don t pay attention to what is really going on The perspective of the book is one of the two factors I feel chopped off a whole star from meImagine it like thisScenario 1 Third Person NarrativeYou re watching this on TVHow do you feel Maybe you laugh say Wow that would probably hurt and carry onScenario B First Person PerspectiveYour friend tells you Wow I got in a really bad ski accident which plays out like this in your headHow do you feel You are starstruck say Oh wow I m so sorry I bet that really hurt and feel bad for themWhich would you rather read about The emotionally detached one or the intense attached oneThat s how I felt about GLOW like it would ve majorly benefited from a re vamp perspective wiseNow I have the other reason GLOW is only four starsThe conclusionWhich it shouldn t be called because the story felt in no way concluded at all Ryan s lame attempt at a cliffhanger didn t help either If you ve read this book you know what I m talking about How it resolved felt in no way resolved and like Ryan was just setting you up to buy the next 11 installments of the SKY CHASERS Series The main persistent problem set up within the first 60 pages of GLOW isn t even resolved Something else is minorly wrapped up but when I closed the back cover of the book I felt in no way satisfied by the endingGLOW is an extremely enticing read with twists and turns around every corner but it lacks emotionally with main characters written poorly and an open ended conclusion that doesn t fully deliver The cast of supporting characters is suspicious enough that you don t know who you can trust and when you do you re wrong High octane action and suspense make GLOW a hit
