Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst

Know yourself, love yourself, make yourself who you are and follow your own path in life. Somehow it all ended as abruptly as it had begun. Overall, I felt as though the synopsis promised a delicious and dark suspense, but sadly delivered more of a contemporary teen romance with fantasy elements. I liked the book a lot more the next ddurst. In the beginning, we’re shown how she has to learn her new identity, how she is given a history How do they all work together?

One small fact here: He had a severely bad case of verbal diarrhoea, and a ve Source: Malcolm is one of the marshals who are protecting her and he is the one she can trust who helps orient her to the world around her. Most importantly, I think, be with somebody who makes your world beautiful. He greatly cared about what happened to Eve and it showed with every kind gesture.

I needed more creepy carnival and less teen romance. She ends up taking a job at a library, bethh safe haven, which will hopefully help her adjust to her new identity.

Only, this time she took it one step further, bringing in an animated cast and story line fit for a magical mystery and whimsical journey of self-discover, power and truth. I just wanted her to grow a backbone. But because Eve is the good girl, it’s okay for her to use powers stolen from people who were violently tortured and chopped to pieces to get her those powers. And it is very interesting to see the way that the character progresses, not knowing who she is, what she can do, and what happened to her.

He had a severely bad case of verbal diarrhoea, and a very active imagination, and he was a bit annoying.

I was so, so close to DNFing this half way through, but I pushed on, wanting to be rewarded for sticking with it for so long Not cats themselves, per se. This book makes for an extremely compelling, refreshing and emotionally engaging journey – one that you’ll want to re-take time and time again.

I was reading carefully, I promise! Eve bfth a new home, a new face, and a new name — but no memories of her past.

I run out of superlatives when I think about this story. The only exciting part in this sadah was at the very end. I kept hoping Eve would end up developing her own personality, but that wasn’t something I really saw occur. And after everything, they don’t give the Magic serial killer the death penalty. This tidbit poses several problem to the reader and makes the first third of the book a very tough read.


The star shaped boxes have remained empty since then. I enjoyed this book a lot. Aug 25, Elizabeth rated it it was amazing Shelves: I really enjoyed all of these characters. She was like a limp cabbage or something. But the style, to me, felt really thick. It would switch from third to first person and back randomly; not only in the visions where it makes sense.

She doesn’t know who she can trust or believe in and who is really out to help her or harm her. Return to Books page. Still, there’s a lot to admire in Durst’s writing and in fact, she does reward those of us addicted to optimism at the end. It’s the stuff that makes Durst books great. I was SO excited by the concept of a magic-wielding serial killer, but I was disappointed that serial killer was not actually a big part of this book. Do I like this book?
