Dahlia



A slower paced young adult supernatural romance novel rated with THREE STARS!

Dahlia begins with a young girl at an orphanage who is left with a chunk of her past missing leaving her with many questions. Throughout the pages several answers are found, however, I found that the book was a lot more slower paced then necessary. The descriptions were absolutely amazing, however, I found that the author was distracted from the story at times to write full descriptions for nearly every thing covered within the pages.

The story brings all of our favourite supernatural beings back while adding in several new terms and supernaturals to keep the story interesting. Even the elements play an important part within the book. It reminded me a lot of "The Mortal Instruments" by Cassandra Claire.

When the story does pick up pace the author seemed excited and I felt like Channelle didn't want to forget her thoughts as these areas were prone to typos and grammatical errors.

I loved the love story between Dahlia and Greyson and the fact that it began as a good versus evil type of love. I enjoyed the mystery involved in the beginning as you are left wondering right along with Dahlia what is really going on. "Her thoughts immediately went to Green Eyes and his comment about being different from others. What did he really know?"

There are some huge OH MY GOD moments as the answers trickle in. Leaving you shocked and eager to read on. The ending ties up nicely and I absolutely loved the last few lines for Channelle's creativeness.

All in all, it was a great book. I would recommend it to anyone interested in young adult, urban fantasy, adventure, and romance. Great work Channelle.
