Review - The Touched

(The Descendants Book 1)
The Touched (The Descendants Book 1)
The first sixteen years of Arabella Penthallow’s life have been a lie…
In a world where deception is the key to survival, Ara has kept up the charade of being a perfect Legion Leader’s daughter. But a darkness stirs, and she discovers she is Touched, a mortal gifted by the Gods. The Touched are as rare as they are feared, and Ara is forced to leave Union City for neighboring Midnight City to protect herself and those she loves, leaving Tove Thorn, the boy who has always known her heart, behind.

Carter Decker has vowed to burn Union City to the ground…

Midnight City’s cocky, infamous bad boy always gets what he wants, and he wants Union City to pay for burning his mother alive because she was Touched. When Carter meets Ara, she is everything he’s been taught to hate. Then he learns she is Touched—just like him—he isn’t sure who he hates more…the Touched girl whose father killed his mother, or himself for being tempted by someone he’s sworn to kill.

They are told they’re fated to be soul mates…and they each wish the other never existed.

When Midnight City is attacked by Union City, Carter and Arabella will do the unthinkable…even if it means falling for the enemy. The truth lies in Arabella’s home nation, and Tove is waiting. Soul mates or not, he has an advantage Carter doesn’t, fated souls be damned.

War is coming…and Ara is the prize.
My Review
This is the first book I've read by Jennifer... but it wont be the last :)
When I fist started The Touched I was a little confused...
It kind of made my head spin a little haha
But I stuck with it as I hate to not finish a book...
and i am so glad I did....
around 3 chapters in I started to understand more and really started to get into the story
So if you start The Touched and feel like you don't understand the beginning... Don't Give Up !!!
Keep Going... I promise it gets better...
Ok so.. The Touched is book 1 in the Descendants Series
and it is also the Authors Debut Book... :o
Wow.. Great Job on your debut..
The Touched was a pretty magical story and for a debut author the writing is pretty awesome... it was very well written
Carter is a male lead in The Touched and I think you will all pretty much love him <3 I sure did
Carter is a real swoon worthy kind of guy
Ohhh I wish I had my very own Carter... hmmm a girl can wish
The Touched was a really great book, with a very gripping plot and it was very well written and flowed effortlessly
The only negative in this book was the first few chapters... but to be honest I kind of forgot all about it once the story gripped me
So it didn't make that much of a effect on the story for me
It in no way took away how awesome the story was...
Well Done Jennifer <3
on this amazing Debut, I cant wait for your next book

A Great Debut Book 4*
