BOOK REVIEW...[ARC] Scrap by Emory Sharplin
I was a little skeptical when I started reading "Scrap" but over all I did like it. :)
Since I'm a sucker for anything with fantasy and magic, my interest didn't take long to get peaked and I found myself in a world of the medieval era filled with magic, mayhem, and a centuries old mystery that involves our bold, quirky heroine.
SO MY THOUGHTS:
The plot line was very original which RARE these days in books and the characters were quite likable.
I also felt that the pacing was "just right" and the story had this colorful quality that kept me always on edge since the story was a bit delightfully unpredictable at certain points. WHICH IN TURN, kept me immersed in reading the book till finish.
On a side note: I didn't like the ending. Here I am reading and totally engrossed in the story and it comes to a brusque conclusion. I was literally thinking, "How can the author do this to me?!?!" If I had known that there was going to be a sequel [or perhaps this book is a series??] then I might have prepared myself a lot better but I didn't. Now I have to wait for the next installment in the series to come out... *sigh*
