Jun 18, Lauren rated it really liked it Shelves: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a review, so here we are! Actual rating probably at somewhere between 3. Just barely shy of my idea of a 4-star book. I actually enjoyed it more than I had originally thought I would.
The plot was really interesting and I definitely enjoyed the premise and the whole idea of their mission: I like that, despite their I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a review, so here we are! I like that, despite their idea of their being soul mates, it wasn't something instantaneous or a perfect relationship that never required work. Even when they found their soul mates, they weren't sure-fire things that they just accepted and rolled with, they were something that required as much effort as anything else.
The couple things that prevented it from being a 4-star book was that some parts just felt a bit too rushed and the story seemed to jump around a lot. It felt like a rough-draft at times, which was upsetting because it was, overall, a very good, quick read. I couldn't do it. Jan 12, Grace Touch rated it it was ok Shelves: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This book had many qualities and aspects of it which were intriguing to me: I loved the idea of the astrological signs each being manifest into a person, all with the basic attributes of their star sign.
I loved the idea of fated mates, united with the mission to bring love to the world though that idea grew to be a bit fantastical as I read on. I thought that the dynamics of the twelve "siblings" would have been a nice little piece, though they just served to confuse me as I continued to rea This book had many qualities and aspects of it which were intriguing to me: I thought that the dynamics of the twelve "siblings" would have been a nice little piece, though they just served to confuse me as I continued to read the book.
Also, we didn't get many interactions with the whole lot of them mainly just a smaller group consisting of a few of the men and only a couple of the women. This was a bit disappointing. Among the many aspects that I disliked in this book also included the idea of soulmates, mainly because none of the characters seemed to act like the title meant anything Father married someone else, who wasn't his Twin Flame, though he was still in charge of helping Pisces find and deal with her mate?
Also what I absolutely detested was the overdramatic denial of the bond between Pisces and Antony on both their parts. They're both in their twenties and they were angst-ing like a couple of adolescent children, always running from the other and getting upset when the other did the exact same thing! The fact that Medhurst tried to make this seem like an acceptable and normal thing to do by calling it a 'stage' in the 'harmonising' process just angered me even more.
It was pathetic and pointless and that's all there is to it.

On top of this, I had no idea as to the actual role of the Dysfunctionals what the heck kind of name is that, by the way? REAL terrifying in this story. To me, they seemed only to serve as an annoyance and an interruption to the angsty crap we were all trying to enjoy. They didn't seem like an actual threat.
Nick was just plain irritating and every time he confronted Pisces, it was like he was trying to explain his actions to her, almost meekly trying to persuade her to his POV. Nonsense, the whole lot of it. The overall execution of the plot and the character "development" fell flat and came off as largely underwhelming to me. I wish I could consider continuing on with this series just because the Zodiac angle intrigued me so much , but seeing as how all the other eleven signs must find their Twin Flames as well and likely take up an entire book to get over their reservations and accept their "Mission" I cannot bring myself to continue reading.
I have no patience for eleven more books of angst-ridden self-denial BS before we finally get around to kicking some Dysfunctionals arse. To all ye who choose to continue on, "Good Luck. May 26, Ramya Idea Smith rated it liked it. First off, even as far as romance-dramas go, this one has a rather cheesy premise: The world is starting to lose faith in love and there are entities who have an interest in keeping that so. It's never clear who these are and what they stand to gain by forcing love out of the universe. So 12 people are born with the mission of finding their twin flame or soulmate, and inspire more such couples to get together.
It starts to sound greatly like propaganda by married people to force everyone else in First off, even as far as romance-dramas go, this one has a rather cheesy premise: It starts to sound greatly like propaganda by married people to force everyone else into coupled-up states, never mind rationale, reason or individuality. But the book redeems itself because of the characterisation of the protagonist and her 11 zodiac siblings.
Pisces is not a strong person. But to anyone familiar with the rudiments of astrology, she embodies the sign perfectly. Pisces is probably the hardest sign to characterise since its people are supposed to 'have all the signs within them'. But this book perfectly etches out the confusion, the heightened sensitivity, the need for space, the intuition and the surprising individuality of the sign. It also does a fair job of fleshing out Cancer, Scorpio, Leo and Aries prominent supporting characters.
From an zodiac viewpoint, I'm not sure why fire and water are allied so closely when astrology tells us it's earth and water that are natural allies while fire and air tend to bond. But I'm willing to overlook that as part of the fictitious universe that the author has created. The book also does a marvellous job of tying you into the whole series by strewing various clues about upcoming books Aries, Scorpio. I will want to read the others simply to experience a fictionalised version of each of the zodiac signs.
I got this book off NetGalley. Jun 03, Anna rated it really liked it Shelves: It is a very interesting topic, 12 children, each for a sign of the Zodiac. Pisces was a great character and totally relatable. Antony was a great "other half". I am a chase girl, so I love to have a great chase that leads to love, it gets me every time. There was good set up for the rest of the series and great potential characters. I will not lie and tell you I can't wait to read my Zodiac sign's story, however it will probably be a while, since my sign did not have a prominent part in this book, but regardless it was a really engaging start to a series.
My small hang ups were some jumpy parts in the story, I would have liked a little more flow AND I wanted a little more content. I'd love to continue reading this series. A big thank you to Rachel Medhurst for providing me a copy for review. Sep 09, Emily rated it it was ok Shelves: Sorry for posting my review so late! Firstly, I would just like to point out that although I rated this book 3 stars, Rachel is a fantastic author. The writing flowed perfectly and was very well written from start to finish.
Unfortunately, this book was just not my cup of tea. I liked the ideas that are present in the story and I think that they had so much potential, however I just feel like they were not explained fully. Maybe I just need to read the rest of the series to understand fully? I t Sorry for posting my review so late! I thought that Pisces was kinda annoying, which was a shame.
I guess books with female main characters are not for me! I would defiantly recommend this book to teens of ages , however it would also be a hit with adults!

I there's no real plot, ok 12 characters need to find their soulmates, but having these 12 characters introduced all living together with mummy, they were like 12 yr old not 20 yr olds. There's too many characters and our baddies the 'dysfunctionals' OMG that name Feb 17, Jade Van Dijk rated it did not like it. Pisces, is annoying, completely stupid, naive, dumb, and did I mention annoying?
That's all you need to know about that. I could not have been more wrong. You just effing know. There is no doubt between 'Anthony of Daniel? Rachel medhurst has heard something somewhere about twinflames, googled it, and used some quote's in the most innapropriate and illogical parts of a bad attempt of a book.
Pisces Sorry, didn't like this storyline at all. It needs more of a kick ass storyline. Plain love story doesn't cut it anymore unless they are fighters which the lovers are not even though one is supposed to be a bodyguard. Even though siblings have supernatural powers doesn't mean bodyguards leave their charges. Okay so you know when you go on tumblr and you see all those posts about the zodiac signs and their typical personalities and what they would be if they were trees? Because of those posts, I've always been interested in the zodiac signs and astrology, because of how I can actually relate to what they were saying about my own sign.
So I've been looking for books that actually focuses on the zodiac signs with maybe awesome powers and just plain fun fantasy. Then I found this book, and I was s Okay so you know when you go on tumblr and you see all those posts about the zodiac signs and their typical personalities and what they would be if they were trees?
Then I found this book, and I was so excited because 1. It's a book about the zodiacs and 2. I was a pisces so I was sure that I could relate to the main character 3. It's a romance novel and I do very much enjoy romance novels But boy was i wrong. I am so disappointed with this book.
There were so many things that just didn't sit with me. Main character Since the MC is a pisces, I thought that I would relate so much with her but no, she just came off as plain annoying and stupid. Also it's been established so many times that she usually gets gut feelings I can relate to this one tbh but never listens to them.

What bad thing could possibly happen if you listen to them. I mean we could've skipped all this debacle. Another thing is that apparently she's the first one that is able to find her twin flame but it never got established why? Plot I've known from the start that this book is about finding the MC's soul mate. But there was still hope in me that they would have some kind of powers. So I started reading this book and from the start it's been established that she can breath underwater.
Nope, it just means that she would have a few trips in London where she could jump in the River Thames for some stupid reasons. But when the MC is so hellbent on finding her soulmate that she becomes stupid and almost gets raped by a stranger then it's just frustrating to read. Then she meets this guy, Daniel, who's so obviously the enemy with his stalker like skills and his suit and she stills goes with him despite what literally everyone else is telling her otherwise.
However, the others thought it was Antony, so now I was just confused. And then there's the whole soul mission and the dysfunctional, like don't even ask me because I don't even know myself because the freaking MC doesn't know!!!!

There were so many repetition about what the mission is or what they aren't telling us and what the dysfunctional is same as before. It was like the author was just trying to reach a certain word count for that chapter that she had to repeat things? Romance The thing that I hated most about the romance in this novel was the running thing. So apparently it's normal for one side of the twin flame to do a 'runner' maze runner anyone ; and the whole push and pull thing just got tiring after like the main guy first did a runner.
Also they got disgustingly annoying toward the end, like hello you are walking into a battle stop shoving your tongue down each other's throats???!!!? Side characters This one I was really disappointed about. Apparently the zodiacs were split into equal groups of 6 of boys and girls. And like I said before, I wanted to see more of the powers each one had. But we only basically got to know Aries and Leo guys and a bit of Caner girl. So Aries can make a fireball, leo can do what exactly?? And cancer can turn herself into water, okay.
There's also Scorpio who lifted a lake out of the ground, pretty much the highlight of this book. But what about the rest of the zodiacs you say? I don't know we never met them, aside from one liners. Also why were the girls so stereotypical? Like they didn't do shit during the whole thing and when literally the rest of the boys were discussing what they were gonna do about their kidnapped father, they pull Pisces away to talk about boys.
I don't know I guess I just expected so much out of this. So many why questions throughout this book tbh. I received a free copy of Pisces by Rachel Medhurst in exchange for a honest review.

Thank you Rachel Medhurst! Nick as an antagonist was as his kind are referred to, Dysfunctional. I could never decide if he was wicked or lost, there was a scene within the book that made me wonder if he was Dysfunctional because he couldn't understand what it was like to experience love. Personally, I would've liked to have seen more of the other Zodiacs but understandably, there are only so many characters that can be introduced in one book without the readers being confused. So much potential wasted. I loved the idea of the zodiac and a twin flame soulmate they had to find, but this book failed to deliver.
She's fragile one minute and a badass the next. Sometimes she wants a hug and other times she hates being touched. This girl has so many issues I can't even begin to explain. Antony isn't any better. He's perfectly normal, doesn't blink an eye at all the supernatural crap that keeps being thrown at him, yet he runs when he finds out he's Pis So much potential wasted. He's perfectly normal, doesn't blink an eye at all the supernatural crap that keeps being thrown at him, yet he runs when he finds out he's Pisces soulmate.
Which brings me to the worst part of the story: There's no reason for it. It's ridiculous and childish. The author couldn't come up with anything better? Hey, maybe I'll jump in the Thames and chance suicide to get away! Just so so stupid. I feel dumber having read this. I'm not buying the next ones. To fall madly in love with her twin flame. Some shifty characters are hellbent on stopping the union of two souls. Was it wrong for me to care more about the bad guys than the good guys in the story?

Perhaps the ambiguity of their purpose adds to the mystery, and I like mystery. Pisces appears to be in love with the idea of falling in love, and her quest to find her twin flame borders on obsession. But it does get a bit repetitive and predictable. For a short read, it has too many characters and some of them contribute little to the story progression.
The book has an interesting plot but it needs a bit of tightening up. Strangely though, despite the shortcomings, I find the story entertaining. This book was slow, redudant and I found it a little silly. And I don't mean silly in a good way. It is the first novella in the series at about pages. I would classify this book as YA astrological romance. I totally made that genre up. You can use it. The premise is quite original but the story itself falls short. Their mission is to find their soul mates. There is an oppsoing force that doesn't want them to for no other reason than 'I don't want you to.
Th This book was slow, redudant and I found it a little silly. There was no real mission. Just to find you true love. That is not enough for me, I need more. My little sister may have liked this book. I found it elementary and inconsistent. Pisces find Antony but he runs away. Then he comes around and she runs away. Chaerak feels compelled to go to the North, for some rea- okay, you get the point.
I also felt like there were some inconsistencies between Dagfinn and Bale. They both called each other the "evil brother" at one point or another. Of course, it could be a set up for the next book. Another thing is that Ilian acts far younger than his supposed age.
If I didn't know better, I'd think he was ten yrs old! Still, his character developed and I was pleased to see him change by the end of the book. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read, especially fans of fantasy and action. Even though it's not perfect, the book is clearly well thought out. I had a lot of fun reading this so maybe you will too! However, I would point out that younger readers shouldn't read this as some scenes are pretty violent and others are pretty Won in a giveaway in return for a honest review Dec 19, Aliya DalRae rated it it was ok Shelves: Once again I find myself in the position of wishing for a half a star.
Two stars seems a little harsh, but there was too much about this book that left me wanting to allow me to go for a full three. First of all, the story was intriguing, and for the most part the characters were likable enough. I looked through the giveaway notes and did not see where this was an ARC copy, so if it was, please disregard these next comments, but my biggest problem was with the editing. If this was an ARC, and an edited version of this book is out there, then the author needs to give his editor a big hug - he had his work cut out for him. Between the improper use of the English language, punctuation in the middle of words, and at one point a word cutting off in the middle followed by what I am assuming was an altered version of the begining of the chapter which went on for a paragraph and a half, followed by the end of the broken word and the rest of the thought.
Things like this, along with an inconsistant use of itallics I couldn't tell if it was a thought, for stress or what? Another problem I had was with the language used. You could tell from the story line that this author likes fantasy - as I said, it's a good story! The characters in this book went from one minute speaking in that familiar form to the next speaking in modern day high school slang - sometimes in the same sentence. It made it difficult for me to keep my mind in the world that was being presented to me, in place where blacksmiths were common, gods were among us, and the main forms of transportation were horses, and more likely a man's own feet.
And never, in all the fantasy books I've read do the men where "slacks". And the swearing was modern. I love me a good curse word, but one of my favorite things about fantasy is they way they come up with world-relevant oaths by the light, damn you to the turn, etc. And one more thing, if you want to have people peeing their pants and throwing up a lot in your book, find different ways of saying it - I lost count of the times someone "lost their bladder" or "emptied the contents of their stomach".
Sure, they work, but it becomes monotonous. This writer has a great imagination - he should be able to come up with lots of different, world-relevant ways to say "puke".
After saying all of this, I still find myself curious about the next installment. I do believe this author has, as I've said, a remarkable imagination and a great story to tell. But I read to get lost in the story, not hung up on the inconsistancies. If this was an unedited version of the book, I would really like to know. I would even entertain reading the edited version, just to get a look at the story without the distractions. Dec 18, Yvensong rated it liked it Shelves: I won this through Goodreads Giveaway! This novel is full of action and fairly fast-paced.
The main characters are well-developed and interesting to follow.

The relationships between the main characters are complex, with positive and negative aspects. Unfortunately, there were issues that detracted from my full enjoyment of the book. The "villains" weren't so well-developed. Motivations of several characters were very unclear, leaving far too much ambiguity to the story. And, finally, one of my I won this through Goodreads Giveaway! And, finally, one of my personal bugaboos -- editing issues. There were several typos, missing words, doubled-up words, and in one case -- a minor character's name changed two pages after the character was introduced.
I know that it can be exciting to get one's first novel published, but I sure wish that new novelist's would use beta readers, at the very least, to catch most the errors before putting into final print. I do believe this writer has lots of potential, as he does tell an interesting story and seems to have a good handle on the fantasy genre. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for an entertaining, action-packed story. Mar 01, Carien rated it liked it Shelves: I had some trouble with this book because I didn't like Ilian and Karena. Luckily there was another character who had lots of 'screen time' and who I really liked.
Further on in the story another cool character popped up and along with a very decent story that made me curious where it would lead, those characters were enough to keep me reading. All in all this is an entertaining fantasy story with sufficiently evil bad guys, cool magic, heroics and sacrifice. I'm not sure if I will read the next b I had some trouble with this book because I didn't like Ilian and Karena. I'm not sure if I will read the next book in this Trilogy Ilian didn't grow on me throughout the book and I usually like to read books where I can relate to the main character , but I will certainly keep an eye on Craft to see what other books he'll write.
Very good for a first novel.
