[EBOOK READ] Transition Anathema #1
Ame way And sure maybe They Have Different Outcomes But have different outcomes but don t care enough to find out because I am literally bored to tears I liked Shanti but I didn t like Chris and I wasn t partial to Sarina liked Shanti but I didn t like Chris and I wasn t partial to Sarina had an inkling I wouldn t like this one when Chris our first protagonist decided she wasn t like other girls and was only friends with boys because girls only care about makeup and fashion and *she didn t like that Please burn it with fire I am SO *didn t like that Please burn it with fire I am SO of this idea And sure maybe she felt that way but it is up to authors and people in the industry to change this tone and this idea into something different that lifts up other girls and women in general rather than tearing them down Then when we meet Sarina Kat one of the other dancers in her hip hop troupe hates her because Kat s boyfriend thinks Sarina is attractive Again I get that this definitely happens but can we please have the tone of these types of interactions done in a better way so that girls who find themselves in this situation don t feel like they have to defend themselves Let s hate on the skeevy boyfriends who tell their girlfriends that they find other girls attractive Fuck those guysThe world building bothered me in two different ways that intersected The first being that the world wasn t extremely consistent and the rules and laws and all that jazz were to be honest stupid Evolved have to wear costumes Evolved have to either join their nations hero groups or give up their rights but don t worry someone will explain that to ou Evolved have to wear arm bands to signify they are dangerous don t even get me started on this one There was so much wrong with this world that I couldn t handle it And on top of this we are told how to feel about the world An Evolved called Preacher thinks maybe God has left and given different parts of his powers to the Evolved which he calls Godkin and one of the main characters Chris immediately dismisses this as wacko Now I am not religious at all but why are we being told this is wacko when there is nothing to prove to the contrary Why can t she just think well that can t be true because of this scientific reason rather than dismissing religion and faith And with Sarina at one point she info dumps so much information but it is so skewed for her opinion on it rather than facts that I feel like I m not uite sure what the actual information about the Pulse and the Evolved are and what is just made up by the characters In all honesty I just stopped caring and couldn t make myself get through the rest of this section to get to the next And I don t really care what happens I was told this is akin to a VE Schwab book which is OBVIOUSLY what sold me but that is not the case This is of a case of been there done that way too many times with nothing new added to the canon I really don t recommend reading itBooks and Ladders Books Are My Fandom Twitter Instagram Bloglovin.

Wn storiesIf ou re looking for a modern superhero story and don t need the promise of a happy ending this is a good one to add to our list There s not really too much I can is a good one to add to our list There s not really too much I can about this book I enjoyed the first part with Christina a lot but I found Sarina s part to be fairly boring I was pretty meh about Radiant s part I would have much preferred the story stick with Christina but we don t always get what we want The writing was very good as was the pacing though it was a little slow for my taste Overall it was a pretty good book I might pick up the second one but haven t fully decided on that just et It s often said that there are two sorts of superheros Demigods struggling to live as ordinary people and ordinary people struggling to live up to great expectations I m happy to say Transition is composed of the latter The book tells its story through three seuential novellas with overlapping characters and plot points Without falling into a melodrama trap Olivia Rising manages to portray her characters as relatable people with non trivial issues Chris lives in the shadow of her ivy league sister Sabrina struggles to start life over after escaping a drug riddled past Radiant deals with obligations to family and self The problems they face are not easy to solve and when they do tackle challenges the solution is derived from cleverness and ingenuity rather than plot contrivance Her superheros powers are specific but versatile and her supervillains are superbly frightening Sleepwalker in particular with his zombiese crowd of followers and weather like movements was someone I found very interestingThat said there are a few shortcomings While each novella does provide a solid introduction to its characters and their problems the book as a whole does not provide an overall arc or conclusion If A Song of Ice and Fire s main plot is the Song of Ice and Fire s main plot is the for the throne of Westeros I can t say what the Anathema series euivalent is Without divulging plot spoilers there is one event which drives most events in the book but neither the event nor its principal character are given major significant pagespace The book instead shows reactions to the event through the eyes and mind of one particular characterOverall I enjoyed Transition I think ChrisMascot tells the strongest story and would be interested in reading of her story Just be aware that this is not a standalone book and ou will need to read the rest of the series It ll be a long ride but it should be a good oneReviewer s Disclaimer I was provided a free copy by the author Disclaimer I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewDNF 49%I thought I could push through with this one but man was I bored There were three sections I made it through one and a half but the story was the exact same to me It didn t feel necessary to have two female protagonists go through similar things and react the World Christina Chung an antisocial misfit whose force fields are fueled by the social bonds she broke during the event of her transition Former coke addict Sarina Baumann whose reality altering power forces her to abandon everything she holds dear The two girls find themselves entangled. .
