3 feather #bookreview of THE ONE DISCOVERED by Yvette M Calleiro

BLURB:

How do you choose when both options have dire consequences?
Sofia is a 17 year old who is quite content with her life. She has a caring boyfriend who also just happens to be her best friend since birth. She has a loving mother. She is successfully completing her last year of high school and enjoys her part-time job. She can’t imagine wanting more from her life…until Ar’ch (pronounced Ar-rick) enters her dreams, sparking a burning flame inside of her that she can’t seem to extinguish nor does she want to.
Ar’ch is a Diasodz (Die-ah-sodz), a species created by the Goddess back when God created humans. Diasodz were made to heal and protect humans, but when the Diasodz turned their backs on helping humans and left Earth to live in their own world, the Goddess abandoned them. Since then, their powers and their very lives have been fading. A prophecy foretold that a young girl born on Earth would be the Diasodz’s savior. Ar’ch and his brother, Angel, travel to Earth to retrieve her and bring her back to their world before her death day in order to save their kind. Ar’ch knows the drill: find the target, capture her, and safely bring her home. But what happens when the target captures his dormant heart?
Choices create action. Actions have consequences. When faced with the truth, what choice will Sofia make? Will she be able to accept the consequences that follow?

MY REVIEW:

First off, the book cover Rocks. The green eyelashes really make the eye POP.
This is a typical YA plot where a young girl discovers that her whole life has been a lie, and there’s more to her world than she knows. Just before her 18th birthday, Sofia is approached by step-brothers Angel and Ar’ch who claim she is The One: the savior for their world and also her own. She is strongly attracted to Ar’ch, the dark, mysterious sexy stranger, which causes her to question her true feelings for her long-term boyfriend, Rafe. What will be the consequences of her actions?
There are some original concepts in this story, like the flecks of colors in the Diasodz’s eyes, which I assume designate the elemental powers that they harness. I also like the tattoos that become real weapons. The storyline kept me wanting to finish the book, but the writing itself is stilted and lacks any spark. None of the characters have unique voices, so as the POV bounces around from one to another, they all sound the same. This is one of the biggest problems with using multiple POV’s.
I did read the first chapter of the 2nd book, and the writing seems to have improved, so hopefully the author is learning as she goes.  But I doubt I will read it.
This is a fun, average read, and if you like YA books, you will like this one too. I give it 3 feathers.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
