    OH NO WHY, ADAM WHYYYYYY WHAT HAPPENED can we please make a pact and just agree that we are all suffering from collective amnesia and this book never happened because i love adam silvera, hes a sweetheart, and i really dont want to drag him and his new book, but its really the only thing i can do many reviews do a great job with going in depth as to why this book is such disappointment, so let me just leave this brief list no world building none zilch zero nil nada its a contem OH NO WHY, ADAM WHYYYYYY WHAT HAPPENED can we please make a pact and just agree that we are all suffering from collective amnesia and this book never happened because i love adam silvera, hes a sweetheart, and i really dont want to drag him and his new book, but its really the only thing i can do many reviews do a great job with going in depth as to why this book is such disappointment, so let me just leave this brief list no world building none zilch zero nil nada its a contemporary story with a couple of sentences thrown in to hint at a fantasy aspect, but with no explanations, no details, no background it makes no sense whatsoever clich after clich after clich such a major eye roll especially with the dialogue, which is unfortunate because AS narratives arent descriptive and tend to be heavy on the dialogue poor characterisation dull, boring, two dimensional, easily forgettable narrators i honestly kept mixing the two brothers up each time the POV shifted.how AS got a three book deal with this hot mess is the biggest mystery of the 21st century sorry adam, but its true i appreciate you trying something outside your comfort zone, but maybe stay in your lane 1.5 stars

    This Review Blog Twitter InstagramI didn t grow up with powers, but I ve been a brother for eighteen years No fire burns brighter than thatI am going to be the villain in this story and say that maybe Adam should stick to writing contemporary novels and I am going to explain why I initially gave the book 3 stars as I felt pressured to do so in support of Adam but that would not be honest I think 2 stars is a rating I feelcomfortable with You see, there is an idea and This Review Blog Twitter InstagramI didn t grow up with powers, but I ve been a brother for eighteen years No fire burns brighter than thatI am going to be the villain in this story and say that maybe Adam should stick to writing contemporary novels and I am going to explain why I initially gave the book 3 stars as I felt pressured to do so in support of Adam but that would not be honest I think 2 stars is a rating I feelcomfortable with You see, there is an idea and it sounds kind of good but the execution was not that brilliant The world building was bad and I am not happy to say this I think there was no world building to begin with For the first half of the book, I felt like I was reading one of Adam s contemporaries I did not feel that it was fantasy, it readlike a contemporary set in a fantasy world There was a lot of mention of the Blackout which is supposed to be an important event that happened in the past The elaboration of that event was so minimal that I thought I missed something and I went back and searched the world, and literally what it says about the blackout is The worst attack New York has seen in my life time and that s it, make what you can of that sentence but that does not make it sound like something terrible as it should be I am embarrassed to say that I have already forgotten the names of the characters but that does not surprise me, they were kind of flat and I really did not care about them the way I usually do in Adam s novels One of them was annoying and I knew where the story was going after a few pages when we learnt a few things about them I also remembered readers reviews of Again but Better by Christine Riccio because many readers felt they were reading her story and it felt uncomfortable for them to pry on her life and at first I had the same thoughts about this book because I thought the MC was like Adam, both of them are from the Bronx for example The plot was okay, I was not that surprised by the twists but I liked the idea of phoenixes and the re incarnation aspect There was another thing I was salty about which is the wands that I felt are supposed to give me the HP vibes but all they did was adding into the mess that is called world building I was excited for this book and I saw readers saying that it gave them tears and heartache and I felt the same but for obviously different reasons aka disappointment And I think this book can use some of the phoenix abilities, for example burning and reliving in a different form Summary OMG, I am certainly upset by my experience reading this book and I won t be continuing the series unless a miracle happen The idea is not bad but it was not well executed on paper I guess I will be waiting for his contemporary and until then, peace .you can still get the book from here Book Depository

Twins Emil and Brighton did everything together but now that they re approaching the end of senior year, all Brighton can think about is growing his YouTube channel and going to college.Brighton chases after the super powered humans and creates viral videos He hopes those will get him noticed and catapult him into fame and fortune I may not be throwing fire, but I m just as much a hero as anyone else. And just when his latest video kind of flops, he discovers that his very own brother, Emil, is among the superhumans Now, things are getting interesting.But Emil has no interest in being a chosen one I can t know who I want to be when I m still struggling with who I am. Well, Brighton can fix that Hopefully in time to prevent the end of the world.So Sooo Sooooooo.Despite Goodreads telling me the opposite I still had high hopes for this book and picked it up from the library thank goodness I didn t buy it.And it started really, really well Within the first few pages, we are thrown into an interesting world of celestials people who get powers from the stars , phoenixes that need to be protected and Spell Walkers who are normals who obtain powers by consuming phoenixes and other magical items The lore was unique and I was super excited to watch it develop I absolutely loved that Emil was gay in this book but being gay had wasn t part of the story It was a complete nonissue Which is fabulous and we honestly NEEDbooks where being gay is about as interesting as being straight to the other main characters But, as the book wore on and yes, it truly wore on it became apparent thatit wasn t well thought out It had all of the elements of a good superhero story, they just weren t put together decently.It felt like a cliche of a comic book right down to being switched at birth chosen one which, come on Really now The world building and magic system or whatever they bothered called it in this book how hard is it to just call it magic became a huge mess by the end of the book It was just so convoluted and there was a convenient exception for every plot point.But I think what was the worst bit was thatI really can t remember any of this book Other than the vague plot points that you find on the back of the book The characters didn t feel distinct, I still can t tell you who did what and which ones died cause they all blended together so horribly well.The only character that really had a personality was Brighton, and the only reason I remembered him was cause he was awful In short, the first hundred pages or so were great when the book waslike a contemporary romance with a slight nod towards fantasy But as soon as the author shifted to full fantasy the book tanked

will expand on this later, but I really thought I would love this book for a variety of reasons The summary intrigued me, and my excitement was only increased because it was by one of my favourite authors The bare bones idea of this book was amazing, but unfortunately the execution didn t do it justice I think it could make a good movie if adapted right NessA character only introduced towards the latter half of the book but for some unknown reason I found myself being so muchexcited when he entered a scene The romanceNow this is both a like and dislike for me This book has been largely marketed as a gay fantasy with phoenixes and I was so excited And while that is technically true, the romance is not a very big component at all It was practically non existent I was so excited to see a traditionally conservative genre bediverse, but we didn t really see much Of course, the representation is still valid even if he isn t in a relationship, but it felt very safe to me and didn t push the bounds of fantasy That being said, the small romantic moments were good, and I would love to see it develop over following books D I S L I K E S The writing styleThis was surprising to me, as I have read Adam Silvera s book What if It s Us cowritten with Becky Albertalli and loved it Like one of my favourites of the year loved it For some reason, this writing style did not gel with me one bit From the beginning I found myself pulled out of the story because of strange sentence structure and weird slang The writing felt emotionless odd for someone almost infamous for writing emotional stories The world building New York Magic Phoenixes For a world with so much possibility for magic, intrigue and atmosphere this world just felt lifeless and 2D TLI aka Too Little Information What is the difference between a spell walker, blood caster, celestial, Spector, halo knight etc Don t ask me because I sure don t know I don t think this is just a me issue either, as many reviews I have read have this same complaint We are simply thrown into the world with no explaination for anything We are given page upon page descriptions of how Brighton s youtube videos and subscriber count are going please don t get me started but nothing about the stuff I actually cared about I want to knowabout the blackout, the politics, how powers work, phoenixes, what their relationship with humans is, what they can do wow I just realised how little this book that supposedly centres around phoenixes includes about them Anything except for Brighton and his viewer count Ugh Can you tell I m a little bitter half hearted attempts at addressing real world issuesThis book seemed like it started to try and include real world issues, but backed out halfway through and just left little snippets without giving the time to properly address them for example wand violence seemingly trying to address the problem of gun violence in a different context which I always appreciate However, I searched the ARC document for mentions of it, and it was literally mentioned once then never again The.Cliches Cliches and tropes don t usually bother me after all they have become popular because they work well and add something to the story I can t really get into this without spoiling it but just think of any stereotypical rip off harry potter fantasy and you ll probably get the same in this book My problem is that nothing new or different was added to the tropes to make them slightly new or different I found myself full on rolling my eyes at some points because it was so outrageously tropey The charactersand by the characters I mean Brighton No, just kidding but kind of not All the characters felt like like carbon copies of each other but with one or two defining qualities For example Brighton s was his need for popularity and power, Mirabella s was her thirst for vengeance, Luna s was being evil Hopefully in the next books we can have a deeper look into each of the characters and their motivations but in here they seemed drastically underdeveloped O V E R V I E W I know I seem mostly negative in this review, but it is just that I was expecting so muchfrom it and I believe it had so much potential to be an epic story However, I did find myself enjoying the storytowards the end and it was very nice to see some different and diverse perspectives in fantasy I will be continuing this series I still have hope it will improve I would hate for it to seem as though I am contributing to boxing authors into one genre, but in this case I think Adam s writing style is simply suited better to his emotional contemporaries That being said, I will continue this series and I have faith in him that they will be better once he hasexperience and feedback from this first instalment thank you so much to the publisher and netgalley for providing me with an advanced copy of this book
