Et to the good stuff I truly njoyed this book I will admit
That The Author Had the author had fluctuating back and forth on whether I really liked Jade or not One minute I did and then came the snark and inappropriate commentary and I was like ack I can t help it I was the good girl growing up and when she does crazy stuff I keep waiting on a reprimand but it s obvious that her adoptive father has learned and perfected his best way of handling hervery hands off It bugs me for a bit but then I m just hervery hands off It bugs me for a bit but then I m just I ll roll with it I do think it s a bit crazy that my favorite character seems to be Shadow Jade She s so cute LOL Weirdbut cute and that I can relate to The better I get to know Jade though the I can understand her and on some levels relate to her as well For me this story Confession ebbs and flows It has fast paced moments and then it slows down When the story slows down in places I get anxious for some action but then the author gives me something to sink my claws into I like the intense moments that Jade finds herself in I appreciate the author showing me her vulnerable side in those moments They are few and far between but I d like to see I like the twists and the way the story weaves together to see if you re really paying attention I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars I can t wait for of Jade Shadow Jade and these four sexy guys I love how the author gives us so many uniue characters situations and surprises I can t wait to hear of Shadow Jade s Kill song and hilarious moments If you are a fan of Avery Song like me grab this book Totally worth it Audible version 1 star The only thing futuristic about this novel is the year If you re reading this in hopes of a mystery in a futuristic fantasy type world move on This feels like YA with shades of bad porn thrown in The FMC Jade was a self involved brat with poor social skills She annoyed me The H were interchangeable with thexception of Zeke they lacked clear personalities Shadow Jade was a pointless character The mystery which was the ntire premise of the FMC Hs attending the school was sidelined in favor of cringe worthy badly written sex scenes The writing was clunky all around Oh the dialogue was xceptionally bad It wasn t at all pleasant to read I should ve DNF d it arly in TBH I kept holding out trying to decide if my dislike of the narrator was the reason I was having a hard time with the story After careful consideration I came to the conclusion it all sucked I recommend this book to fans of Yumoyori Wilson All others not at all Overall I njoyed It gave me a Yumoyori Wilson vibe with an Curators of the Buddha edge 4 stars This one was just ok Not my favorite of Avery Song s series which stinks because I reallynjoy the plot of the Tracker Hive Academy series I love the concept and on one hand I really really want to see how it will all play out I love the use of 8 Another Way Home: The Tangled Roots of Race in One Chicago Family elements rather than the typical 4 or 5 inlemental based magic The main reason that I struggled with this book a bit were the characters The main character is all over the place I found the storyline really interesting but I can t get behind the characters motivations They don t always feel believable or authentic to me Maybe that aspect will get better in future books and maybe I will try book 2 again at a later time but right now I have other books and other series that I am interested in continuing If you are new to Avery Song she is great But I recommend starting out with her witchling series I am between 25 and 3 starts for this one so I will round up Not for meDNFLoved the book cover and the storyline blurb Except the mc was too immature The skipping like a child just didn t make the mc Cezanne a Study of His Development endearing I liked the mc at first but once she met the uadruplets it went down hill It s all about insta lust pornographic discussions on sex with the mc being 18 and the dialogues were crudeimmature There was no romance build up The storyline tries to cover gayeismnvironmental issuesrecycling and sex talk I felt like I was being preached on I do like a good RH book but this one was a Pages 414My rating 3Read other books by this author in the future MC Jade Shadow Jade Zion Zeus Zeke ZacharyThis is an okay book I did not like the Insta love aspect It was not well You Owe Me One executed At thend I did not feel like I should read the St alone However the Troubled Four Zeke Zion Zackery and Zeus have other plans uadruplets who together carry all Democratic Art: The New Deal's Influence on American Culture eightlements the boys are desperate to make me submit to their trickery Theyāre stupid to think Iāll play by anyone's rules but my own I can handle whatever threats traps bullying and schemes are thrown my way because I'm not here to be a good student I'm here to keep my secret safe from those who will do verything to see me perish Game on This is an 18 Academy Romanc. .
What just what the is thisThis is a preachy porn book wrapped up in a fantasy tortilla Sure you think you re going to read about a young woman with powers who is attending a cutthroat academy and solving a mystery with the help of four hot guys but what do you actually get Half ass preaching attempts and rotic scenesJade is awful She s supposed to be independent and sassy but she comes off as a bitch She s rude to her adoptive father her tutor her trainer basically Confederate Cities: The Urban South during the Civil War Era everyone And most people unless the plot needs them to do otherwise just shut up and take it because Jade is oh so amazingThe guys Well you really only get to know one of them Zeke is the flirtatious bad boy who hangs all over Jade and slobbers on her like he s a starving dog and she s a piece of meat The others you don t see much of Theyach get a chapter dedicated to them and then that s mostly it because Jade is always flirting and screwing Zeke She does have sex with Zeus I think but it comes out of nowhereCalvin the boy she saved from bullies who barely makes an appearance suddenly proclaims that he s the villain s son and needs to right his father s wrongs Oh kayShadow Jade why is she a thing She s a super simple stupid version of Jade She speaks in broken sentences sings about killing people and apparently no one notices that she s insane When Jade pretends to be her no one realizes that she speaks in complete sentences and they think she s Shadow Jade The whole thing is just stupidThe so called mystery is about how students have been committing suicide and it s up to Jade to find out if there are nefarious forces behind it Well if you re Convents and the Body Politic in Late Renaissance Venice expecting that run away now It s brought up once and doesn t appear again until thend when the answer neatly falls into Jade s lapI skipped the sex scenes I found them crass and cringy I m not an rotica reader but still IckThis book tries to tackle serious real issues of our world but they re lame attempts

On that the narrator knows while in first
person Jade killed her family Was she manipulated Yes Doesn t change facts She s been spouting allJade killed her family Was she manipulated Yes Doesn t change facts She s been spouting all that they were murdered without a wisp of a thought to howJust a bad book Nope It s the year 2504 and Jade is living on the street after her family was killed Not only is there nowhere for her to go but she s also being hunted for her powers by people that want to sell her on the black market With only the company of the lements she commands she s barely surviving and the people she sees on the street treats her as she s something yucky under their shoe This makes it hard for Jade to recognise friendliness and kindness when she finally sees it However Alaric Masters takes Jade in and offers up his home and protection but Jade is afraid it will all come tumbling down on her when he learns of her destructive lements Enter Shadow Jade Jade s lement of Darkness likes to take on the form of Jade and has her own erie and childlike persona Shadow Jade is one of the best characters Ever All she wants is to protect Jade destroy and kill things and collect as many dolls and plush toys as possible which makes her xtremely Twelve Days of Pleasure easy going In order to hide how powerful Jade s Darklement is Shadow Jade is nrolled as her twinFor the first 30 percent of the book I did not like the heroine Jade at all As in not ven a tiny little bit What was an attempt at snark and sass just seemed like pure rudeness and childish opposition at least to me Especially in regards to Tanner one of the grownup s who actually helps take care of her And I was so disappointed the other adults didn t just Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye encourage it but also helped facilitate it There was no real reason for Jade s dislike of Tanner which almost borderes on bullying when her adopted dad and his girlfriend joins in It seems that the fact that itntertains Jade and pisses him off is Grand Illusion: The Third Reich, the Paris Exposition, and the Cultural Seduction of France enoughBUT THEN OH MY character development I LOVE that Jade isn t one of the typical virgins in distress but of a romance novice Reading about how she s slowly opening up very slowly which stays true to all that she s been through and the trauma and scars she surely feels from her tragic childhood As for the guys well for once I didn t love them completely Their relationship with Jade is filled with instant and sizzling attraction which is fine But the way it developed felt somewhat sloppy to me It went from light flirting a few stolen kisses here and there to the biggest love declarations all in a span of a few chapters I was very pleased to notice that the author has toned down on the amount of blushing whining and pouting done by the characters Yumo is notorious for having characters in their 20 s that do all three things inxtreme xcess So the fact that she s cut back on it makes it makes the characters wholesome and motionally mature If I could rate based on the characters alone I would give Shadow Jade a fantasillion hearts She s the absolute best But since that doesn t seem fair so instead I ll give the book four heartsTWITTER BLOG PINTEREST INSTAGRAM Enjoyable but confusing at timesI Great Plains: America's Lingering Wild enjoyed this novel however I found it very confusing at times I wasn t sure who was talking at times A lot of characters at once and notnough distinction of who was speaking The story itself is a great idea though I shall continue to book 2 x OMG fucking loved this book the mc was soo funny and i loved that she didn t care what other thought of her and she was her psychocrazy ass self The first half of the book was my fave part It was great to see a build upbackground in the beginning of Jade storm The guys where nice uniue i guess i would say That s why it was so Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets easy to tell them apart cuz of theirmotionssort of and i think these are the first uadruplets i read about Lovely The Tracker Hive Academy Year One is book one in Avery Song s Jade Storm Tracker series I have to say first of allI LOVE that the author gives the reader Jade s Electromyography for Experimentalists early years When I realized this I devoured that section of the book Normally authors give us flashbacks or little tastes of life WAS like for them but we got toxperience it with Jade as she stayed on the run from the men who wanted to drag her to the Black Market for her uniue and rare abilities Fast forward 10 years and we Corner Luckily I was saved and taken in by Alaric Masters headmaster of Tracker Hive Academy My name is Jade Storm and Iām the youngest recruit to become a Tracker Now that I'm ighteen Alaric is insisting that I attend the academy Iāll do it but on my own terms My only goal is to learn just how powerful I am and breeze through the next four years I have no interest in joining any cliues and Iām not here to
