  • A great start to a fabulous new series!

    I received an arc of this novel in exchange for an honest review! OK, this one started off really slow for me. I was seriously getting worried that I wasn't going to like it as much as my friends did!! I can honestly say that the first 40% of the story was only a 3 star for me. But holy cow, when it took off, it took off with a bang!! I stayed up until the wee hours of the morning devouring the rest of the book -- a SOLID 5 star plus!! Seriously, I couldn't stop thinking about it once it was finished... So, let's get the meh part out of the way -- I'm still trying to figure out what exactly wasn't working for me. I found it really hard to get a read on Della personality wise....she just seemed very flat. And some of her initial reactions to the situations didn't feel, more like I was *told* how she freaked out when she learned of her new powers, but I didn't see it in her actions and stuff. Thankfully, once Ms. Claire found her groove the characters truly developed, and the story just took over my imagination. So if you've started this book and been feeling like me, STICK WITH IT! You won't be disappointed!! Seriously, the chemistry between Della and Cash was hilarious -- it made me want a cousin like Cash to hang out with. And while there wasn't a lot of movement in the romance between Della and Dove, what was there was so sweet and perfect. That boy just makes me happy *sigh*. I'm still not entirely sure about Uncle Connor and Luke -- there's so much that's hinted at with Luke and Toby's story, and I just really want to know what is up with them. I can't help but love them, but feel wary of them all at the same time. I LOVED the magical world that we were dropped into -- it was a bit confusing at the beginning, but the terms were reiterated and explained and once the book finished I felt I really had a grasp on their powers. The cheat sheet at the end was perfection. Definitely a new and unique world that was well developed. The action had me on the edge of my seat....seriously, the clash with the Clade was basically the point where everything fell into place, and I got a better feel for who Della was as a person. I thought the foreshadowing in the book was well done as well...I mean, I would like to tell myself I am just utterly intelligent and figured out the Father mystery b/c I'm so smart, but there were some well placed hints throughout the book so you felt like you had a leg up on the mystery at times. I'm not huge on cliffhanger endings, but this wasn't like a Buffy season 5 cliffhanger.... It was more of a setup sneak peak on where the series will be heading. I cannot WAIT until the next book is sucked in, and have so many theories of where it's going!! So in conclusion -- READ THIS!! It is a fabulous start to what will be an epic new paranormal series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A must read!

    I was given an ARC of this book for an honest review. When I sent the notes I gathered during my read to Regan this is what I said... I feel that it should also be included in my review because it's the truth! My initial thoughts were - OHMYGOSH! THIS. WAS. FABULOUS!!!!!!! WHEN WILL THE NEXT ONE BE OUT?!?!?!?! But I don’t want to sound too much like a school girl so, I’ll stick with - Oh Regan, I honestly think you have a winner with Gathering Water! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and simply could not put it down! Despite my goal of taking my time and reading it slowly I read it from beginning to end in one sitting. The story line is original and combines so many of the things that I enjoy reading (fantasy, fae-like qualities/characters, magic, and of course love). This is a marketable book and that I feel that it appeals to more than one age group. Although I did find that the beginning of the story could have been sped up a little it wasn't too distracting nor did it cause me to lose interest or stop reading. The story really came to life once Della took control of her adult life. I loved the characters individually and together. The chemistry between Dover and Della is tantalizing and appropriately written. Their honor and respect for each other is perfectly developed. I love the potential I see in them, not only as a team but as a couple too. The cliff hanger had me yelling at my computer and I wasn't ready for the book to end, despite knowing that it was about to. Bottom line for me is GO READ THIS BOOK!!! You will not be disappointed at all!
