My Evangeline and Sophie:


*4 STARS* Review:


Anomaly (as well as whole Casual Enchantment series) is action-packed novel, full of twists that kept me guessing till the very end. The world author built in this series is without the doubt one of the most unique and fascinating things I have came across within YA fantasy genre to the date. Written in dual POV of Evangeline and Sophie, Anomaly is a must read for all fans of this exciting series!

"There are only so many impossible decisions one being can make before the weight becomes to much."
Sophie is the most tragic character in this series and definitely my favourite one. Author potrayed her despair and turmoils perfectly in this book and I could not help myself but be Sophie’s biggest fan. She is my "hero" of this series and I was so glad I was able to see things through her eyes in this instalment.

So why not 5 stars? I expected Evie to mature, to change mentally. But she didn’t. And while her naivité was charming at the beginning of the series; now, when there was whole world and innocents lives at stake, it was very annoying. In series, I expect characters to change a little bit, to grow one way or another. Not doing the same mistakes over again, hoping some higher power will solve it at the end.

But beside this minor complain, I enjoyed conclucion to Casual Enchantment series immensely. I really hope K.A. Tucker decide to venture into this paranormal/fantsay genre again in the future.
