As the author, I think it's awesome. View all 8 comments. This book was really disappointing after I enjoyed the first one. It was also really short. I read it in about 2 hrs. Everything was very rushed, very little was explained or fleshed out with emotion.
Things just happened with no transition. Also, 6 weeks passed between book 1 and 2, and there were things that had happened inbetween that made no sense to me. We didnt get to see how it came to be. And there was no world building. Nothing was explained to us about the world and it was very confusi This book was really disappointing after I enjoyed the first one. Nothing was explained to us about the world and it was very confusing.
If I hadnt grown attached to the characters in Exiled , I wouldnt have cared what happened to them in this. And the romance was a bit of a mess. Although Michael was clearly the one she was meant to be with due to the way he was explored and focused on as a character, Venus was clearly in love with Zaren.
When she was with him I sensed no uncertainty from her. But then when Michael showed up she was suddenly confused again. It was not convincingly done at all and felt entirely unnatural. The same goes for Zaren.
He was in love with Venus since book one, but as soon as a former lover showed up, he seemed to be completely over her. I had expected it to take the whole of the book, or perhaps the series, for Venus to slowly realize that Michael was her soul mate.
Instead, she is caught up with Zaren for the whole book until BAM! She loves Michael with no build up, and all progress they had made in book 1 had disappeared when she picked Zaren. I am really confused about what happened to this book, considering how much I enjoyed book 1. It feels like a completely different writing style. As if it were rushed, amateur, or a rough draft. But I will still read Dovetailed , in case it ends up being more like Exiled, and if it's as short of this one it will be no trouble to give the series another chance.

Mostly, I'm surprised because I remember enjoying the first in the series when I read it almost ten months ago. I remember it as a quick, fun YA read with a sci-fi twist and absolutely loving the original cover. I even gave it three stars at the time.
So I'm not sure what's changed with book two of this series. I'm actually th I have to say, I'm surprised at how much I did not like this book.
I'm actually thinking that maybe it's me that's changed, and not the writing style of the novel. I've read about one-hundred books since I read the first book in this series, and it's inevitable that I've grown as a reader since that time. I think it may be that this series just can't compare to what I've read since then.
I won't be sure though unless I actually go back and re-read 'Exiled'. As to why I didn't like "Beguiled": To begin, I think that the pacing is this books biggest issue. I'm fairly sure this book is pretty short, but it's hard to tell without real page numbers.
Maybe it's a lack of good transitions, or maybe something else, but I felt like I was getting whiplash from the speed of everything that was going on, to the point where I was getting confused. It felt like this when I read it Venus on a beach! Zaren appears! I love Zaren! Micheal appears! Wait, I love Michael! Giant Shark! Micheal kills giant shark with his bare hands! Michael drags Venus to underwater lair! Lair is a hell-place!
Everyone from book one magically appears! Also, a talking telepathic belt! I read a lot of series and I normally don't have a problem following what happens in the next book, even if it is a year later. With "Beguiled" this isn't the case. I think a lot of it has to do with the jargon heavy language specific to her sci-fi world, but I felt a bit lost starting out, especially since the story opens with what I believe is a future event from later in the book.
It would have been really helpful to me as a reader to re-cap the main points from book one to frame the events going forward in book two. My other problems include Venus being super flighty about who's she's in love with right out of the gate.
It was annoying because book one ended with her making a firm choice to be with Zaren and yet it takes no more then 5-seconds after Michael shows up for her to be completely confused all over again.
