SYNOPSIS:

 

I had a dream of a boy.
He was from Earth.
I am not.
He gave me an iPod.
I woke up holding an iPod.
I fell in love.
We had more dreams.
I would like to believe in this.
But I am out of time,
and they are after my life.

Where do you start to protect someone you love, when you can barely protect yourself?

A Story of Many Songs is LOVE, LOSS, PAIN & DESIRE.
This is LOVE.

 

REVIEW:

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. It’s short but it has a very slow-paced. I feel like the whole story revolves around Myla and Blake meeting in their dream and Myla’s training. Although the world building is there and Myla’s training is quite detailed. Another thing is the narration of the story. At times, especially when it is Myla’s POV, there is inconsistency to the narration. From first person POV, it will switch to a third person POV which makes me cringe at times. I like it if it is in the  first person and it is also fine if it is in the third person. But it needs to settle as a first person or as a third person. When it comes to Blake’s POV well it’s mostly in third person and I don’t have a problem with that. I just feel like Blake’s character is overpowered by Myla. There are parts in the story where I sometimes wish that they both have different character development. I can see Myla’s development but as for Blake, well let’s just say that I hate reading his POVs because his character does not stick with me and I don’t care about him.

The whole story is okay. The plot has potential and there are 3 more books (I guess?) so there is still room for more development. I already have the second book on ebook form, thanks to the author once again and I will be reading it soon because I enjoyed Myla’s story. Nevertheless the ending is a cliffhanger! But I wish that the ending will somehow be the climax of the story because the plot of this book is so smooth that you wouldn’t even notice that you’ve reached the end. The story feels like it is building up for a good climax, but then it ended just when I thought I’ve reached the climax.

Do check it out, it’s available in Amazon. I would categorized it as sci-fi contemporary, so if you love that genre I’m sure you would enjoy it but don’t expect much, although I’m guessing that it will get better. By the way it’s a series and it’s called A Story of Many Songs.
