    One thought on “Amethyst”

    1. Okay fresh review.First off, I hate giving something 1 star because it makes me feel like a jerk but honestly, to me, this was a 1 star book. I could see some other people enjoying this though (mostly females, and preferably younger females than my age.) Things I didn't like:1. Cliche love triangle that was sappy and lame (we all knew where she would end up)2. The word "essence." I truly hate that word because of this book, if I see that word one more time3. My lord this book was so boring, it t [...]

    2. I struggled with this oneI'm hopeful things will improve as the series continues.The premise is intriguing and I wanted to like the book. I can tell the author is talented and smart, and with some editing this book could have really stood out. But between lacking character development (flat) and unrealistic dialogue it was hard to keep reading. The story gets interesting right at the end, which is great because the book desperately needed some confict, but then author gives us a summary of book [...]

    3. I found Alex to be majorly annoying. She was a very emotional character. Always getting upset or mad for no real reason or for something stupid. I will give a few examples below.So Alex/Lexie thinks that since she sees premonitions she has to save the people involved AND if someone dies, it's her fault. Yes, it is! She is Jebus, is she not? There was an unknown cyclist that is mentioned briefly and it having been her fault he died. Also, "the hallucinations from the bus accident" Huh? Where was [...]

    4. YAY FOR FREE BOOKNote: Free, and it was pretty awesome. free. I feel like i want to give this a 3.5 (but a very high 3.5 obviously)Song Choice: "Another Lonely Day" by Ben Harper, and "Breezeblocks" by Alt-J There are my song choices that i think reflect certain aspects of the book, yay! The song that i was listening to as reading the last chapter that i think ended very nicely for me was an instrumental called "In Reverence" by David Tolk, try that! BWHAHA so there is that. First thoughts: Whil [...]

    5. I'm finding a lot of stories recently which start with great potential and then fade into mediocrity. Sadly this book also falls into this category. While it has a strong narrative voice and a few heart-felt scenes, its major drawbacks come from a weak plot, poor pacing and inconsistent charactersORY: Lexi, or Alex to those close to her, has had premonitions of people dying for a long while, and has lived trying to help everyone she can. Having recently moved to a new neighbourhood, she comes ac [...]

    6. I was torn between giving this book three or four stars because it took me awhile to really get engaged with the story, nearly 50% into it. Okay, please read the whole review, the book has lots of potential. The first chapter was really good, action, although the writing had too much narration for me. It was a lot of telling the story instead of showing it. The characters weren’t development enough either and there was a lot of repeated information but this happens sometimes when a writer need [...]

    7. Like a few other reviewers on here, I was torn between giving this 3 and 4 stars, and I'd say ideally I'd give it more like 3.5but I didn't feel moved enough to round up to 4, unfortunately.I like the premise. I think there is a LOT of potential in there. The author can definitely write, and the story was paced very well. It was structured nicely and I did find myself really wanting to know what would happen next. On the surface, everything was 'right'.The reason I've given this 3 stars is that [...]

    8. Amethyst is a short read but so worth it. Heather Bowhay did an amazing job at capturing my interest as well as supplying a book that has a concept that is beyond the norm. The story is about Lexi (Alex/Alexandria) Adams who is a young girl about to enter college. She has been plagued with premonitions most of her life and the premonitions allow her to save innocent people. For the most part she feels as if no one understands her and she really wishes that she could be normal and not such a frea [...]

    9. From its eye catching cover to the last page, Amethyst is a gem of a book. Heather Bowhay has a strong start to her new YA series, Guardian. With a touch of romance, a touch of humor and lots of tension in the plot, Young Lexi finds she has supernatural powers and is essential to a special team of Guardians, each with uniquely different powers or essences. Lexi is a rare Amethyst, with the power to heal and strengthen others. She also has the power to see the future, which may come in handy in t [...]

    10. Amethyst is a rather mild read which will hold your interest, waiting for something to happen to give it a defining moment. Our main character is Lexi, she has been plagued most of her life with premonitions. Either alone, or with the aid of her BFF, she has assumed a life around the lives she saves through her visions. A few plot devices are cinched to assure the book continues. She bumps into a guy, he is of course "different." And she is scheduled with an alternate manager at her job, this ma [...]

    11. I received this book for free on Kindle. I really didn't know what to expect upon beginning this book but by the end of the story I was left rather disappointed. I practically had to force myself to read this book. I felt the beginning of the story was hard to get into and the dialogue felt forced. There were a few places where the dialogue could've been rewritten. This book also had a weak plot and seriously lacked in character development. Some of the characters seemed unrealistic to their ag [...]

    12. Amethyst is such an entertaining story! I love the main characters and I already hate the antagonists of the series and you barely meet them in book one. The pace of the story is really good and there is a nice blend of confict and humor. The writing style is very good and flows very nicely throughout. I'm really glad I came across Heather in one of the discussion groups and picked up this very worth-while read. In fact, I can't wait to dive into "Linked" which is book two of this series! Where [...]

    13. I really enjoyed reading this book, and I'm looking forward to starting the next one in the series, Linked. The characters are well written and relatable. There are several twists in the story making it hard to put the book down.

    14. This first installment of the Guardian series was short, sweet and absolutely amazing. I can't say that I loved it because it was way to tragic for that but it did have me falling in love with the characters and enjoying the novel to the max.

    15. Amethyst was definitely an entertaining read with plenty of cool stuff going on. This book was just shy of a 4 star rating for me so I would easily take another chance with more books by this author someday.

    16. Captivating, thrilling, and clearly romantic I loved this book. The characters were well developed. The plot was fantastic. The relationships were realistic. A new twist on paranormal/fantasy romance. Can't wait for the conclusion in "Linked".

    17. I’d like tell you that you don’t need to read this review. Just go read Amethyst, by Heather Bowhay… but since you’re here you might as well stay a minute and read why.This book had been sitting on my kindle for a little while (sorry Heather!). I’d ‘one clicked’ it, hoping to get around to it last summer, but never did. The cover was simple, and I really had no idea what to expect. So, with finals over and stress levels at an all-time high, I decided to just pick a book and hope so [...]

    18. I was pleasantly surprised by this.Characters were realistic and relatable. Our heroine seemed to have a respectfully level head on her shoulders and she was naturally endearing. Supporting characters were all well-rounded and each brought something extra to the table. Our dueling hero's added an even more interesting element to the story, love triangles are always so entertaining. The story was in a 'small-world' type base theme but there was a lot of growth going on and a lot of potential for [...]

    19. I loved this paranormal book and can hardly wait to read the next one. I love love triangles and a gutsy heroine.

    20. Great interestingThe book was interesting and captivating. English and writing very polished. Well written book. Waiting to get second book; linked.

    21. Amethyst is the first book of the Guardian series by Heather Bowhay, in the book we are introduced to Alexis, or Lexi as she is know to her friends. Alexis has a special ability where she can see events of people who are going to be in-danger, however she ends up finding people who have gifts and learns about them as well. In the process she also finds herself falling for two different guy's, one of them who she has saved and the other who is just a normal guy.The book is told completely from Al [...]

    22. I honestly feel bad for giving it two stars because I see the potential but in the end it really felt lacking. First of all was the characters- I found Lexi to be really annoying. Out of all the characters she was my least favorite & that's sketchy considering she's the main character. I really don't get why she freaked out so much when Jessica told her about her healing powers. Hello? Is there a brain in there somewhere? You can't assume you're the only special person with magical abilities [...]

    23. 2.5 stars. I'm not crazy about the writing in this book. The dialogue doesn't sound real and the scenes between Alex/Lexi and Jason are stilted. I would catch myself thinking about how I didn't like something the author did or wondering why she did something instead of being caught up in the story and characters. I almost never think of authors when I am in the midst of reading.I can only guess that the football jargon was supposed to make this story more appealing to guys, but it was annoying a [...]

    24. I picked this book up FREE on kindle. It’s the first in the series and has been with me for a few months before I finally got around to reading it, which didn't take me long at all to finish. The only things that got in my way from me trying to finish this book in one sitting was the fact that the human body requires a few things to survive, that and sleep. Sleep was very important.After reading Amethyst I am looking forward to getting my hands on the second book, Linked.Amethyst stars Alex [...]

    25. Amethyst is a book that would never have crossed into my spectrum if it had not been free on kindle, but I will say that I am glad it did, and can not wait to finish book #2. As my first e-book I was glad it was fulfilling. Amethyst is about college-bound Lexi Adams who has strange "Premonitions" that basically dictate the majority of her life. But her life changes, and becomes much more stranger, when she meets a group of people who refer to themselves as the Guardians. The things they reveal [...]

    26. Ugh, I hate giving out two stars! But, sometimes, it can't be helped.The premise of this book was exciting and intriguing, but the execution of it failed to follow through on its full potential. It started out fairly well, but quickly disintegrated into a boring, lackluster story that had its moments, such as the bank scene and the confrontation in the forest. But, sadly, these interesting moments were all too brief and infrequent.The majority of the story was focused on the extremely annoying l [...]

    27. Lexi Adams a college student who has premonitional visions since she was a child tries and sometimes fails to help cheat death by saving the people of her visions. But, when she sees her own death, instead of being frighten she is relief. She views her own death as an escape to her premonitions and her life around them. But, after meeting Jessica, discovers she is an Amethyst(someone who has the ability to heal others)just like her, bringing something to think about if she is willing to fight to [...]

    28. College-bound Lexi Adams leads no ordinary life. Premonitions dictate her every move compelling her to rescue strangers day and night. After years of self-sacrifice, she decides to ignore one, but innocent people die. So, when the next premonition depicts her own death, Lexi has a decision to make.Except more complications arise when a series of strange illnesses and murders devastate her small town, and co-worker Jessica Nelson insists Lexi can help. According to Jessica, everyone is born with [...]
