Review: I am the Messenger

3 stars

The ending cheated me. I loved this book, I wanted to know what the next message was, who it was for, what it was about, what Ed had to do. I needed to know more about him, those he helped, what he’d do next. If I had the book (as opposed to the audio) I’m sure I would have finised it in a night.

Ed is an ordinary guy who is given an extraordinary means to change lives and he does. No, I think he deserved better than Audrey (but was willing to overlook that) and yes I think the timeline could have been clearer, but the fact that he took the challenge when so many would have tossed the addresses away shows character.

Until the very end. Without spoiling it, what a crock. I’d give 5 stars for the first 349-ish pages. I’d give 2 for the ending. What a cheap way to wrap up a brillant story. I don’t care if this is a YA book, that’s no excuse to fudge the ending with a tedious ‘no please don’t let it be so’ format.

Disappointing.

About K. Reed

Romance author with a twist. Too many post-apocalyptic stories, movies, and what-ifs crowded her head, and K Reed decided to do something about it. So she plotted one out, decided an historical post-apocalyptic romance was the way to go, and wrote that one instead. A lover of all things historical, of strong heroes with equally strong heroines, and of sexy pirates, she’s going to explore the dystopian world of plague-ridden 1804 and the gritty criminal element of Victorian England. Luckily she has an understanding family, supportive friends, and a day job that offers her the flexibility she needs to plot, plan, and write. Sure, one day she’d like to travel the country in search of fantastic storylines and great locale pictures, but for now she’ll stick to the east coast and the internet. @kreedauthor www.kreedauthor.com www.kreedauthor.wordpress.com kreedauthor@yahoo.com
