Why I chose this book: A little well-known fact about me: Everything she is ever a part of is always, without a doubt, Ah-mazing. So I will forever buy everything she ever comes out with, and Never Never was not going to be the exception. So very very wrong. This was an utterly refreshing read.

I hardly know what to really categorize it as. This is the hardest review to write because I just want to talk about the amazing spoilers, but obviously that would be mean, so I will leave you guys with the fact that you must read this book. I gave this book 5 stars on my Goodreads. Check out more of my reviews at ofspectaclesandbooks. Charlie and Silas were best friends growing up and then went on to date and love one another, that was until a family feud split their two families apart and left Charlie's family with nothing while Silas's still lived in wealth.
One morning though, the pair will wake up with no recollection of their past lives and soon discover that they are in it together and must work as a pair to find out what has happened and in doing so find out the truth about what tore their families apart? Near the end of Part 1, we discover that this has been happening for more than a week now and their memories only last 48 hours. Now the clock is ticking, and Charlie is missing, somewhere out in New Orleans. What will happen when the time runs out, and Charlie is left without a memory and Silas to remind her of what's happened?
Never Never Part 1 finished on a cliffhanger, and now I am looking forward to reading Part 2 and seeing how the story plays out. One person found this helpful. So, I was out and about and forgot my book at home, so I pulled up my Nook app on my phone and randomly chose this book because I happen to love everything I've read by Colleen Hoover. I won't say I was disappointed, because I found myself immediately intrigued and couldn't stop reading!
It was different than I was expecting though! I ended up not being able to go back to my other book until I had finished this one That's how completely the story has gripped me. The idea of two people just randomly "waking up" and forgetting everything is very unnerving. I can't even come up with a reason why this has happened and can't wait to get to the part where we find out. They are all pretty entertaining and easy to connect with, and each of them has at least a bit of characterization, so I actually had a good time in their company.

Nina , the main character, is maybe the one I found most hard to stand, because, gosh, she is slow. Wake up, lady, make that little brain of yours work a little faster. Im' not the biggest fan of her sister Melanie either. My favorite, instead, is Finn , the love interest- but again, I'll get there soon. The idea that somewhere exists a well of souls which can run dry, as it actually happened in the book, is fascinating and wonderful. On the other hand, I feel that Vincent's description be it direct or indirect of the reality Nina lives in is a little too vague , even superficial at times.
Moreover, while I get why the Church is in charge of everything and acts as a real and actual government, I felt the lack of the religious system upon which a Church is meant to be founded. More than once, Nina and her friends point out that for their whole life they are though obedience and faith; but faith in what, or better, who? God is never mentioned, but if the demons are told to be evil because they are 'unholy', that it is implied the existence of a 'holy' someone who give humans the strenght to fight evil.
This Church and his adepts may as well belong to the Flying Spaghetti Monster 's creed, as far as we know. And it may be me, but this omission kind of weakens the whole thing. First of all, with this book Rachel Vincent made the history of insta-love. She totally redifined this concept. I am not joking. And that is just the first of a fair number of kisses. But clearly that was not surreal enough, because, people, meet Finn: A wandering, stray soul. He doesn't have a body. Thus, when he and Nina kiss they do it while he's in someone else's body.
Two of these bodies belong to two members of Nina's new crew of exorcists, so to two friends of hers, who are also the boyfriends of other friends of hers hide spoiler ]. Not disturbing at all. Now, seriously, I was truly and deeply pissed off by the whole insta-insta-insta-superinsta-love thing, but that other issue is so much creepy as to be eerily interesting.

Finn is a sweet, nice guy, actually- except when he does horrible and scary things like view spoiler [use the body of an innocent and randomly picked man to shield Nina from gunfire hide spoiler ]. This disgusted me pretty much.
Anyway, if for nothing else, I'll pick up the sequel just to know how it will end between the two of them. I have a certain theory concerning the ending of the series, and it's a really grim, cruel and, again, disturbing theory. I hope I am wrong, but I cannot deny that, if I'm right, that would also mean Vincent's going to end this duology with a bang. View all 24 comments. Aug 18, Ashley rated it it was amazing. October 8, Wow, just This book was pretty fantastic. The beginning was slow I did think that quite a bit of it was predictable, I guessed a lot of things [and I was either right, or at least partially so] , but overall, I really felt a lot of originality on this one.
Its like demons, zombies and first read: I don't believe I've ever read anything from this author before, so I am not altogether sure of her writing style, but I'd definitely say that this book was well written, and even though I thought the plot was kind of iffy - [definitely one that you can get totally right, or totally wrong] - this was done beautifully. Some things confused me I am really looking forward to book two, and I am [as always] sad that it won't be out until June I definitely think this one is worth the read, and not just because of that fucking amazing cover come find me: View all 21 comments.
Nov 19, Faye, la Patata rated it liked it Shelves: Okay, you're probably wondering out of all the things this book has the first two things I mention are: I thought it was It was certainly unique. They won the war, and now what they have is a shattered land ruled by the iron fist of the Church who may or may not be who they say they are, AND a group of teenage exorcists on the run who is hunted at every turn.
It may probably not sound like it, but this book was insanely always on the go. There is honestly almost never a dragging, dull moment - the book keeps on throwing a twist here, twist there, and the occassional creepy vibes. Was this book creepy? I'd say it was effectively atmospheric. I started imagining the bleak way of things here and it just felt so bloody scary.
Add to that the demons that invade people's bodies in order to consume their soul, and degenerates which are demons that have been stuck in a body for too long that it has made them sliiightly insane, you get a pretty action-packed book. I did have an issue with the world-building, though. Yes, I enjoyed the backstory of the Church and everything, and how they ruled things around here, but I couldn't really picture the wider scope of the setting. There are a lot of abandoned towns, there are wastelands, only a few tens of thousand people are left since the war decades ago, gas is a rarity, and yet you can have pizza delivered?
And then, there's Finn, the love interest, who has amazing green eyes that we keep getting reminded of over and over in the span of the book. In order to do things, he has to go inside another person's body - with or without permission. This is probably the closest thing to a polygamous relationship YA can get, as we see our hero and heroine interact with Finn using different bodies - some who are notable side characters with girlfriends.
It was certainly unique, although I'm not sure I'm a fan of it right now, so I'll have to wait until later to determine how to absorb it. I do have an issue with Finn, though, because he continuously goes inside other people's bodies and use them to steal stuff and do things that would lead to that person once Finn gets out into trouble.
That didn't sit well with me. View all 14 comments. Mar 30, Aly's Bookish Wonderland rated it liked it Shelves: I feel like my life is a book, and someone turned the page before I was ready, and now I can't follow the story. Nina Kane's only worries are to keep her soul as pure as possible and find a way to bring food to the table every evening without fail. With an addicted mother and a young sister, no one can help Nina but herself. In future America, the Church rules as steadfastly and cruelly as it did in the past.
Women are kept pure and, if they are healthy enough, are allowed to bree 2. Women are kept pure and, if they are healthy enough, are allowed to breed once they marry. If not, they are sterilised, just like the men that are not pure and unhealthy. One is cleansed from their sins by purification: Flames masked his ruined face, but could not mute his screams or the crackle of his crisping sin, captured by multiple microphones and broadcast all over the country.
He hunched forward, futilely trying to protect the most vulnerable parts of his body as smoke rose and disappeared into the rapidly darkening sky. But that's not all. Demons infiltrate human bodies and take over. They're everywhere, watching constantly. It's only a matter of times before an army comes to New Temperance. Part human, part monster, the creature squatted, a tangle of knees and elbows, stringy muscles shifting beneath grayish skin. The limbs were too long and too thin, the angles too sharp. The eyes were too small, but they shone with colorless light that seemed to see deep inside me, as if it were looking for something I was even sure I had.
One night, as Nina is walking home with a bag of stolen clothes, she encounters a degenerate. Fleeing from the monster, she is suddenly saved by a strange boy When Melanie reveals a secret that could kill them both, Nina needs to make a decision: It's not long before the decision is made for her, and Melanie is ripped away from Nina and Nina's entire world will never be the same again. When the boy saves her life a second time and introduces her to a group of rogue teens running for their lives, Nina joins them and sets out to find and save her sister, even if it might kill them both.
Maybe it's time I quit reading dystopia, because I am not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, it was enjoyable enough to keep me reading. On the other, it felt like a Supernatural episode on crack. It felt like that final demon showdown in season five of Supenatural. Good vs Evil vs Humanity vs Church. Like maybe it needed more work. Does that even make sense? What even WAS that? They've known each other literally five minutes and suddenly they're playing the world championships of tonsil hockey.
I don't get it. Thing to choose as a love interest. I'm curious to see how the author will make that work in future books. View all 4 comments. May 23, Taschima rated it really liked it Shelves: I think someone gave Rachel Vincent license to do whatever the hell she wanted in this book, and she went for it. Hard, and with heck of a good result. While the whole demons and religious fanaticism has been done before, maybe to death, Rachel Vincent comes out of the left wing swinging a tale so dark and rich it allows you to sink into the very depths of the reading experience.
The Stars Never Rise is one of those titles that stays with you long after you finish it. I keep going back to it and I think someone gave Rachel Vincent license to do whatever the hell she wanted in this book, and she went for it. I keep going back to it and thinking of the characters, the world, the fucked up relationship between the mother and her girls, the boy with the deep green eyes It all just comes together to effortlessly that it just marks the beginning of what is to become another great series under Rachel Vincent's name.
Nina tries to be the good sister, the one that does everything the church asks for in order to not stand out. If she were to stand out then the church might notice how her mother checked out long ago, and the only person making sure her sister is kept alive is herself. She may pose as a good girl, but inside she is all fire.
She does what needs to be done, and she doesn't like her world's rules not one bit. But she will sacrifice everything for her sister, even if her sister might take it a little for granted. Mellie is a wild child, that acts first with her heart without consulting with her head.
Mellie and Nina are there for each other however, no matter what happens, and that is what sisterhood is all about. The twists and turns of this dark world are enthralling. You don't know if to hate the church or grudgingly respect that they are doing what they can to keep humanity's population alive, and this is something that our main character struggles with. I love how unique, I guess you can say, is the romance in this title. I don't want to give anything away, but Rachel Vincent sure threw us a curve ball. It made my day, and I am sure it will also make yours. Though I am a little weary of how fast Nina and Finn's attraction worked, it worked way too fast, but then it kind of slowed down so I guess that makes it okay?
I don't know and I don't care because both Nina and Finn are awesome characters and they should have it all. I cannot wait for the sequel to this book! Give me more demons, exorcists, Nina, complicated relationships, and Finn! Well, let's just say Aug 16, Alyssa rated it really liked it Shelves: Delacorte Press Publication Date: June 9, Rating: Copy sent by the publisher Summary from Goodreads: I'm so glad I decided to binge-read this duology!
The publisher sent me an unsolicited copy of this book which did not affect my opinion in any way , and then book two, and I knew that was a sign. I've had my eye on this series for a while, but never pushed myself to read it. I'm glad the opportunity was presented to me though, because I enjoyed the series! Nina Kane is coming up on seventeen years old, and something is happening to her. One night, while sneaking back home after a grueling night of work, she comes face-to-face with a demon - and incinerates it with her hands.
Nina discovers that she is an exorcist - a real one - and what the Church have parading around as exorcists are not real. In fact, the Church has been lying to everyone for years, feeding lies about demons and exorcists and souls. Now, Nina must find a way to rescue her fifteen-year-old pregnant sister, who the Church took because of her pregnancy, and because they want to use her to draw Nina back.
Nina must run for her life in order to save Mellie, and she joins with Finn and a team of real exorcists who are determined to decimate the demon hordes. When I first saw that this book was about exorcists, I was a little nervous. I was thinking of those old-fashioned exorcisms, in which a person is tied down and there is a priest and he yells "Come out of him, Satan! And I didn't particularly want to read a book about this. So I was excited to see that Vincent's type of exorcism is fire, shot from the exorcist's hands.
Nina is so strong, so independent, and has had such a difficult life already. With her mother's health declining, Nina has been taking care of herself, her mother, and her sister. When Nina finds out that Mellie is pregnant, panic sets in a little. Pregnancy must be planned and licensed, and Nina did neither of those things. And when Nina kills a demon, who happened to be her mother, the Church comes after Nina in order to silence her. I like Nina and respect her so much. My heart broke for her, and the hard decisions she had to make.
But I love how strong she is, and how this strength translates into her exorcist abilities in a way. Nina is a kickbutt exorcist, with training. Meeting Finn and the gang made Nina stronger. Finn is a weird character, and I won't get into that. But I like him. He's the love interest, and I think he and Nina are great together. Finn is playful and flirtatious, but it's clear that he likes Nina from the get-go. Other characters include Maddock, who is sweet but a little troubled, Devi, who is mean and territorial and also Maddock's girlfriend , Reese, who is big and tough, and Grayson, the only one who isn't an exorcist she's also Reese's girlfriend.
I liked all of these secondary characters, even Devi who is annoying but also hilarious at times. This book focuses on Nina's transition into exorcism, as well as rescuing Mellie, and uncovering secrets that the Church has been hiding for so long. We all know how shady and cruel the Church is, but it runs so deep.
Demons and the Church are more connected than our characters thought! From the start, we as readers don't trust the Church. The romance is weird and it's because of something with Finn , but it's cute. No love triangle or anything like that, but it's a weird one. I liked it though. Finn and Nina work around limitations, and you can pretty much see where that thing will go.
Which will probably happen in book two, and it'll make the romance even better! So I liked the characters. I liked the romance it was a little slow, and sometimes weird, but cute.
I liked the story so much action, fleeing, etc.! Overall, a really great book! What I Did Not Like: Like I said, the thing with Finn and the romance is weird. Not necessarily awful, but weird. When I first read that, I did a mental double-take. But anyway, it was fine in general, but weird too. I would have liked to see more between Finn and Nina physically, too!
Would I Recommend It: I was a little concerned about the whole exorcism concept, but it's totally not what you think it will be! Vincent's version of exorcism is very different. So if that's a thing that's worrying you, don't let it. I liked this book and I see why it did well. A good start to the duology. I'm glad I get to binge-read the books, because the ending of this book makes me want book two now. Not quite a cliffhanger, but still a hooking ending. This was my first YA book by Vincent, and it was pretty great! Oct 03, Jennifer rated it really liked it.
Different but at the same time had a familiar feel but I can't put my finger on what books it reminds me of. If you enjoyed the Soul Screamers series as I did I think you will like this series.
ywukakyzin.ml: Never Never (): Colleen Hoover, Tarryn Fisher: Books
Souls play a big role in this series as well. I loved the world building although it pushes a bit too far into religion for me. Even with the paranormal twist religion plays a major role. In this role demons began possessing people and they began eating the souls.
Exorcism was proven and ther Interesting.
Follow the Authors
Exorcism was proven and therefore the church took over power. With the church having power everyone has to follow the churches rules and they are strict! Sins are punished brutally. They even burned one teenager to death in front of the town. Parenting licenses are required to procreate. Souls have been decimated due to the demon attack so there are not enough souls to go around. An elder has to donate their soul for a child to not be stillborn. A lot of crazy stuff!
Nina is a year away from She takes care of her younger sister since their mother has checked out and doesn't care for them much. She is willing to do anything for her sister. Then she starts questioning the church and everything that has happened after she sees Finn exorcise a demon that only church officials should be able to do.
Finn was very intriguing. Not sure how I feel about him. I'm honestly not sure I could ever be with him personally but Nina is a pretty open person. Definitely want and need to learn more about him before I can fall for him but I do know he is a good person doing the best he can. I also liked all his rebel anathema friends. The ending is really only the beginning. Doesn't end on a huge cliffhanger. It was a bit too predictable for me. I wanted at least one revealing to be surprising but I predicted everything. Still enjoyable but I just wanted a little bit more.
It is the first book and I know with the Soul Screamers series it just got better and better so the next book will hopefully blow my mind a bit more. Then I totally knew Finn traveled to different bodies. Then I knew her mom had been a demon all along and that demons were running the town and demons won the war not humans.
It explained all the crazy rules and punishments. Then I totally knew Adam Yung was going to be burned at the stake. Which I was really sad about! Wish they could have saved him! A lot of this was probably not supposed to be a big shock but I would have liked a few twists. Apr 13, SophiAnn marked it as to-read Shelves: This sounds so cool!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait until !! It's like chasing a dream though it is really just a butterfly. Jun 10, Carmel Rabid Reads rated it really liked it.
There was a steady flow of twists which was good because although none of them were stumpers, they kept things interesting, and other than the bizarre love interest, I thought that this was a smashing kickoff. I loved how dark the universe was from the very public executions of sinners, to the shortage of souls for newborns. Vincent painted an extremely dire picture that only continued to darken as the plot advanced.
Fast-paced, exciting, chilling, and most importantly - unique. In this dystopian future, the Church now rules what was once the United States. After the war against the Unclean aka demons , many souls were wiped out of existence, and now it's a matter of preserving the remaining souls against demonic possession. The people are trapped behind walls and beneath oppressive restrictions, but they are The people are trapped behind walls and beneath oppressive restrictions, but they are safe A story about demons is nothing new, but the author throws in plenty of twists to the point that nothing about this felt derivative.
Plus, her writing is just so engaging. I read this book in almost one sitting, completely hooked by the story line. There were parts that flat out disturbed me, parts that had me on the edge of my seat, and others that had me tearing up. I didn't expect such careening emotions, but it's wonderfully anchored by the book's lovable characters. Nina, whose fierceness and courage I liked very much, has just discovered she's a born exorcist. Forced to go into hiding, she joins a small band of fugitive teens who must stay out of sight of Church officials and who are looking to rid their world of demons.
They're an eclectic bunch, none more unexpected than Finn, Nina's love interest. I'll let you discover his role on your own; it's bound to surprise you, and you can add it to the growing list of what makes this book so creative. While the romance isn't exactly easy, I still fell hard for Finn and was rooting for him and Nina all the way.
I think they make an adorable pair. I'm so excited to see where Rachel goes with the sequel. The ending was a bit clunky for me, but overall this was such an addicting thrill ride, and I can't wait for more! This review can also be found at Love at First Page. Thanks Giulia for this book! I read the excerpt for this story a couple of months ago and absolutely loved it because of that it was a really, really cool dystopian idea.
Then I received it for Christmas and was incredibly excited to read it, but it did not turn out as great as I had hoped. First there's the insta-love. When that happened I was about to DNF the book. Second there's the fact that the eve Thanks Giulia for this book! Second there's the fact that the events in this book take place over a total of 3 days, if I counted it correctly - and most of the time is spent sitting around in an abandoned apartment doing nothing. There's no progress at all. The end was kind of good, however, which is the reason why I did not rate it 1 star. But I still won't continue this series.
It brought it up to two stars, just about, but there were too many "ugh"-moments for me to be interested in reading more about this world and these characters. May 14, Drew rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is about souls and demons and exorcists, and I loved every second of it. From beginning to end it was full of fast-paced action, an awesome, demon-slaying team, and a sassy heroine who maybe wasn't the most original, but she sure was a lot of fun to read about.
Nina has the kind of voice that I've heard in a lot of other YA books with female narrators, but that doesn't mean I disliked her. I really enjoyed her strong, fierce, and spunky character that had just a touch of humor—I just wis This book is about souls and demons and exorcists, and I loved every second of it. I really enjoyed her strong, fierce, and spunky character that had just a touch of humor—I just wish she'd been a bit more distinctive instead of fitting so perfectly into the "tough, unstoppable, hardcore heroine" category.
It would've been nice if a few more details had been added to distinguish her from other awesome female characters in YA books. Nina's rogue team of exorcists had me mentally cheering them on the whole way as they destroyed hoard after hoard of demons, and because of their monster-killing powers, their abilities to fight, run, and hear are enhanced. Even the parts where they were just sitting at their hideout, stocking up on food, regaining their strength, or planning their next attack, were awesome. They were a gang of tough and hilarious teen exorcists. They all had the same fun, thrilling, entertaining vibe, but they didn't skimp on darker subplots or good messages, either.
I liked the surprises, the strong sisterly bond between Nina and Melanie, and I was even able to enjoy the romance. This book was just great all the way around. It might not be the most unique YA book I've ever read, but I sure felt like I got a few good hours' worth of action-packed excitement from it. This is no way impacted in my view. Wow, this book was perfect in every single possible way.
The Stars Never Fade tells the story of Nina Kane, a 16 year old living in a dystopian world unlike any I have ever read before. Over years ago the Demons ravaged the world, leaving only a few settlements intact, though they had consumed the souls of many who'd perished. As such, there is now a severe shortage of souls, leading to many still born pregnancies.
To combat this problem, the Church have taken control, and a whole multitude of sins are severely punished in order to ensure that the remaining population are pure and worthy of the souls they use. Considering I have read a lot of dystopian novels, I was quite pleasantly surprised to discover how unique and fresh the concept was in this novel. I'm not a religious person, but to see the controlling nature of a society run wholly by ecclesiastics was a definite shock to my system.
As the book progressed, the church government became an even larger part of the plot, and there were twists and turns at every moment. The biggest plot twist involving the church was so shocking that I definitely hadn't seen it coming, which is a nice surprise. Nina was a perfect teenage protagonist: There was definite character development with her, and I can't wait to see how she progresses in further instalments.
Finn was a great male character; whilst he was a love interest for Nina, that's not all he was. There were layers to his character, which is shown throughout the course of the book, and he, and the rest of the group, were there for Nina when she needed them. Jul 07, Andrew BritBookBoy rated it really liked it. The pacing of the story is extremely brisk, with action and plot twists abundant from the first chapter.
This had me tripping over the words, unable to read fast enough to find out which direction the story and characters would take next. Often leading to me rereading paragraphs, due to my own impatience. A balance between action and satisfying world building was perfectly struck. I often find fast paced books have to sacrifice some of the intricacy that lends itself to a fully realised fictional world, in order to carry the plot at a certain speed. Here the author managed to handle this like a pro.
She found creative ways to dole out information to the reader, without it ever slowing down the story. It boasted a colourful cast of characters, both lead and secondary. I found myself especially attached to the protagonist, Nina. The author conveyed her tough, yet sympathetic nature through a multitude of strong actions, reactions and an endearing narrative. Her burning desire to protect and nurture those she cares for was extremely well established, which had me rooting for her to triumph at every crazy turn. Though what looked at first glance to be a typically cliche romance, soon became something quite unconventional and original.
The ideas and obstacles this romance raised has a great deal of potential to explore in subsequent books. Overall, this was a thrilling start to a new series with lots of action, originality, and crazy revelations to offer. I have to wait a year for the sequel, The Flame Never Dies. Oct 30, Sana rated it liked it Shelves: First of all, Julia thanks for bearing my annoying messages about this book.
XD Wow this book was awesome. It wasn't one of the best things I've read, but enjoyable and definitely leaving me for more. A mysterious boy with green eyes? A secret to hide?

A likeable MC and a very unique love interest. I h First of all, Julia thanks for bearing my annoying messages about this book. The definition of a bitch. Sorry, but I don't like her.
Other than that, Finn is mine.
