Even before he could read, H.S Stone wanted to write a book Fascinated by the stories that seemed to leap from his kindergarten teacher s books, he went home and wrote his own book, with illustrations and bound by staples Of course, since he didn t know how to read or write yet, the book was full of gibberish.Undaunted, H.S eventually mastered the ABC s and continued to write throughout his gr

    I was given a free electronic copy of this book by the author, in accordance with the terms of For Love of a Book s Advance Reader Opportunity Program.I m slightly torn on how I feel about this book, hence the very middle of the road rating I liked the premise, I liked the main characters, and I liked the powers on display I don t take back the fact that I recommended it to a couple of people as I was reading But at the same time there were problems that did knock it down from top ratings quite hard.I ll deal with those first to get them over with The big thing was that the majority of the cast were extremely thin on motivation, meaning that a lot of major plot points just seemed to happen for no reason The antagonists in particular suffered extremely badly from this a category in which I also include Retir, or Party Traitor.Basically, I spent the whole book asking why the Evil King was rounding up and killing Gifteds The whole book I just couldn t get my head around it, or why he seemed to have so much support There was some suggestion that he was using his power on the whole kingdom, but why And how And how were some people apparently immune to it Voima I get, and if she was the only one then it could have been foreshadowing of her power, but there was also Abime and the other Regulars on the farm, not to mention the fact that Gifted people don t seem to hate other Gifteds, so what It may seem a minor nitpick, but it mad...

    What a thoroughly enjoyable read Set in a land where people fall into two categories, Regulars and Gifteds, the Gifteds find themselves at the mercy of their twisted King Although a Gifted himself, King Yolus has decreed that all Gifteds are to be imprisoned and forced to fight to the death in gladiator like combat Caught in this web are a brother and sister, twins, one of whom is Gifted and one of whom is not Despite all their efforts to hide, they find themselves embroiled in events pitting them against the evil King and his equally depraved sister, Pahia, to try and save the kingdom and with it, the Gifteds While the basic events may have been told in stories before, and the mutant powers displayed by the various Gifteds seemed familiar, I found their combination here and the author s narrative to be engrossing The entire story was well planned, the action points distributed with just the right cadence, and the ending satisfying I would highly recommend this ...

    Originally posted on my blog H S Stone contacted me to see if I was interested in reading his book I read the premise and thought this is fantasy mixed with some Roman culture with the whole fights to the death thing that very much reminded me of gladiators and so I accepted to review the book And I have to thank Stone for letting me read it because I had a blast It was a fun, fast paced read and I really enjoyed it.So, Gifted, follows Voima and Vendd, two siblings that are trying to not get caught by the King soldiers because Vendd is a gifted You see, society is divided between Regulars, common people, and Gifteds, ones with several powers like super strength or the ability to heal and things like that But the problem is that Gifteds are persecuted by the King and his sister who ironically are also Gifteds If you are caught, then you are imprisoned and forced to fight in a duel with another Gifted until one dies So when Vendd is discovered and locked up, Voima, his sister, is only concerned about freeing him.One of the things I enjoyed most about Gifted...

    Summoning strength from the edges of her mind, she built a layer of safety that grew in size, enclosing all of them This book held you on the edge of your seat It was very descriptive and had a set of characters that you grow to love In this world, there are two types of people Gifted and Regulars Gifted are just that, gifted with special abilities and powers that normal people don t have However, being gifted is a curse than a blessing Their king, hates Gifteds and captures them Once captured their fates are sealed They fight to death in an arena with other Gifteds The king has also poisoned the minds of other citizens and no one will be able to help them This is why Gifteds try to hide their power Vendd was doing exactly that He is a gifted, with the power to heal His sister, Voima is all he has since their parents are dead They were gifted as well Vendd must hide, but one fateful day, when a group of soldiers who were trying to capture another gifted accidentally discovers him He is taken away and ...

    I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.This book was an easy read It started off kind of slow but was interesting right from the start I chose to begin reviewing books since I have come across numerous books that have been labeled Christian and were clearly not This book, with its powers clearly is not a Christian book but is not a book that Christians necessarily need to be wary of This is a very clean book, which is what most parents look for when reviewing a book for one of their children.Twin 16 year olds, Vendd and Voima, are basically running for their lives They are in a world where people with Powers is something to hide Vendd has a power that they must hide, for fear he will be captured by the king and killed in a Gifteds Duel One day Vendd is captured after inadvertently showing his power Voima thinks of everything possible to save her brother and in the end realizes that she too is Gifted She has the power of p...
