    1. I recently looked up the common methods of cult indoctrination - on HowStuffWorks, because I have no class - and came to a chilling conclusion; the Zevgheni are a cult, and Seph is in the process of joining. Every key step for indoctrinating a cult member (aka thought reform), listed in the linked article, is reflected in Charcoal Tears. See for yourself: - Step 1, Deception - cults trick new members into joining by misleading them or withholding information about the true nature of the group; t [...]


    2. THIS BOOK. Yes, it's Young Adult and I am an old lady. Guess what???And the Adairs and Quillens are MINE. Yes, I know the Adairs are 17 years old (Cabe and Noah), but when I read them, I am fulfilling my Twilight Bella Swan fangirl side, so it's OKAY. Don't judge!The Quillens are only 25 which makes me almost 20 years older then them, but again: don't judge. This is my fantasy world. Okay, maybe it's not JUST mine. Just kidding. Stay away from my boys!Okay, seriously though. Review time.This boo [...]


    3. I'll start of by saying that I don't intend to offend the author or anyone who has read the book and liked it. This is my opinion. As this is my opinion, I'm going to speak the truth about what I think. Summed up in one image:Charcoal Tears felt like reading a damn copy of The Academy Series by C.L. Stone.That's the ugly truth.It's not the same word by word, but there are TOO MANY "similarities" existing between one and the other and you cannot expect me not to point them out when I've read The [...]


    4. Holy s***! Its freaking The academy with fantasy and horror elements! DAMN! One of my fav books of the year. And its a YA "Fan-girl-squeek!" I dont even know where to start with this. Although there are a lot of references from CL stones academy series, meaning - abusive parent - reverse harem - one sibling - stalker - bomb on school ground - "family" bonds - more mature the more you read, and more hot.mIt still didn't feel like complete rip off. Strange. There are so many similarities but i sti [...]


    5. Welcome to Chesca's fantastical ONE STAR review of Charcoal Tears! Firstly, let's begin with the main character,Seraph.Ugh, who calls their main character Seraph? Doesn't that mean angel or something stupid? Like SOOOOO pretentious. She's also artistic and looks after her younger brother, taking on abuse herself from her father to keep her little bro safe. Ugh, she's clearly just added this in to trick us into feeling sorry for this whore.And then we have four guys. FOUR GUYS. Can you believe it [...]


    6. No thanks. I'm so disappointed after reading all those raving reviews, and I'm obviously the odd man out, but I absolutely hated this book and the characters. I'm actually angry I finished it and didn't just DNF like I should have. I'm trying not to write an ugly review, but I have to say I need more world building and character development. The MC just annoyed me to death, but, to others this could be the best book they will ever read, so good luck if you try it. I'm defiantly skipping this ser [...]


    7. Well the strangest thing happened when I finished the book and stopped to give my rating - a flock of flying pigs flew past my window (say that five times fast), I just realised I had just given a 4 star rating to a YA book AAAAAAAARGHHH!!!Yes it's true a real 4 star rating who would have believed this day would happen, certainly not me. A 5 star of course is when hell freezes over and I have to admit having a few chills when reading this book but I resisted the feeling and ploughed ahead.Damn t [...]


    8. Here's YOUR chance to WIN one of SEVEN eCopies from Jane Washington!International - Click on Banner to Enter! - Ends November 2, 2015Meet Seraph Black. She’s a survivor, she’s proven it, time and again. Just stay calm, stay under the radar and keep surviving, not always easy, but it works, or at least it had until her world changes with just the screech of some tires. Cue the music, backlighting and action…two of the most overpowering and handsome teens to ever grace her school have arrive [...]


    9. Cliffhanger ending. DNF disliked the protagonist. She's a 17 year old artist who is dense, gullible, weak, has low self esteem, is socially awkward, painfully shy, lacks self preservation & common sense I could go on but I'm sure my point was made. She has no redeemable personality traits. She's supposedly beautiful, magically gifted with 2 rare abilities, & every hot guy (that matters) wants her so of course every female hates her. She’s so special she doesn't just get paired with 2 g [...]


    10. Buddy read with the MacHalo.I can't believe I'm so affected by a YA novel. What the hell is happening with me? I mean it's not just an YA, it's one of many YA I read and liked in the past few months. I can't properly express my feelings about this book mainly because I don't really understand them. I thought that if give myself some time and start the second book things will clear out a bit but now as I approach the end of Watercolour Smile I'm even more confused. And I have this heavy feeling i [...]


    11. I was all about this book until I realized that even though Cabe had previously recognized Seraph as his mate, he still fucked someone else. So, no. The other guys are great and I liked the rest of the story, but I'm picky enough that this will keep me from finishing the series.


    12. This is one of the most frustrating books I have ever read. I don't even fully understand the backstory! To briefly sum up this book is about Seraph, a girl who's grown up in a severely broken home with her little brother and abusive father. Then two new boys (Cabe and Noah) start school and basically attach themselves to her, acting all mysterious and protective/possessive. Oh and lets not forget Silas - the intense, brooding guy who hangs around at Seraph's work - and his twin brother Miro her [...]


    13. This book is a torture device in the best and the worst way!Disclaimer: I will admit I went ahead and read the 2nd book too before writing this review so I will try to keep it as separate as possible. I am so confused as to how I am planning to rate this. So I will follow many of my fellow reviewers and break this down into the good and the bad and rate it after. Before thatok one moreThat was for my new found love for polyamorous relationships. The Good: Concept/Plot I discovered a new concept [...]


    14. OH. MY. GOD. This book LITERALLY BLEW ME AWAY!!!! I've read Jane's books in the past, but this was something special. AGGHH I NEED MORE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved the friendships that Seraph has with the others, even though the boys try to push the boundaries, I still felt like they had a real connection beneath all the 'bond' stuff, and I appreciated that. Have I mentioned Silas yet? Because. WOW.Cabe was my second favorite. I liked that he was always so happy and and bright. Seraph needed a per [...]


    15. Stuff clearly happened. I, as the reader, was not informed of much of it. I, as the reader, do expect/anticipate MANY explanations in the next book. And Team Silas, just gonna put that out there. Thank you Talyn. This book was really pretty good. You've done it again. Touche.Happy Reading!!


    16. If you say it's like The Academy series I'm on it. SO SO SO on it. I don't care if it reads like the names have been switched. I want more books like these.


    17. Didn't think I could love Jane Washington more than I did before I read this book. I was wrong! Gah! I think I'm in love with Silas. Is that weird?


    18. You know, while this book does have a few points I felt could have been better executed (I’ll discuss further down), I overall found this book to be an example of why I usually quite like the indie books I come across. Though it’s evident this author isn’t the most polished and probably didn’t have a massive editing team behind her to make all the rough edges glimmer, I still see ample talent from her and overall have good impressions of her from this book. What drew me into this book wa [...]


    19. This book truly exceeded my expectations. Gripping from the very first scene. The quality of writing was superb, the descriptions of the characters moving and the imagery vivid. From the very opening lines I knew this was gonna be one hell of a good book. I must admit I had a hard time getting my head around four men being so heavily interested in this one girl with their unusually complicated relationships with her, but it made for a whole new level of suspense I had not encountered before in a [...]


    20. Reread 4-6-17Had a friend sit me down and look at this from a different perspective. So I did. Turned out to like it somewhat. I still can't look past somethings but I will move on to the next book. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Original ReviewMy edition: KindlePages: 268Series: Seraph Black #1Rating: No ratingReview: I had to take a little break from the Derek and Sofia drama so I thought this might work. Well I chose this book because it was recommended to me since I liked C.L. Stone Academy serie [...]


    21. This is a bizarre one. The premise is intriguing; a girl, Seraph, brought up in a harsh life, made tough to survive, all the while carrying a secret so bizarre there is no one safe to tell, finds herself caught between not TWO, but FOUR individuals who bolster her self-confidence and makes her feel safe despite her harsh life and yet, when a stalker is introduced to said life, she can't tell who threaten her survival more, the guys or her stalkerry cool.BUT, there is a confusion that comes with [...]


    22. What to saywhat to sayis is one of those books that keeps you hooked till the end. Yes, it's annoying to not grasp what is exactly going on and yes it was annoying that the lead chick didn't ask the questions and demand the answers like I thought she should but it is what kept me reading kind of. I will admit I still don't get the whole bond thinge whole 4 guys thing kind of weirds me out a little. I actually thought there would be a twist at some point and Silas would be the one and only consid [...]


    23. Love the ideaI am all for the reverse harem story Line - however, this was extremely frustrating to read. You Will not get one. Single. Answer. NOT ONE. And on top of that you get a huge cliffhanger. Christ. Some times I wonder if authors Think the only Way to get the readers to buy the next book is to make sure the first one ends with a cliffhanger and a billion questions. What happened to wanting to buy the next in the series because the first one was awesome?Also, it is very juvenile - ridicu [...]



    24. The beginning of this book gave me serious Twilight vibes. With the whole almost getting squished by a car thing. But that's where the comparison stops.(view spoiler)[I was a little skeptical in the beginning because understanding the main character was a little tough at first. But then I started understanding more and more.I'm liking the fact that this isn't a normal paranormal book. It's not your typical vampires or werewolves or angels. It's new to me. I'm not sure if the author came up with [...]


    25. ★4 Stars★I don’t know how the hell I stumbled across this book, but when I read the synopsis I knew immediately that I wanted to read it… and I did! And I could NOT put it down! It reminded me pretty heavily of one of my favourite YA series by C.L. Stone; which is a great thing, because there’s just something so addictive (and amazing) about reverse harem books. Thumbs UPSeraph was an incredibly lovable little 'mouse'. She covered a lot of bases – she was vulnerable, a bit damaged, s [...]


    26. "For ten long years, I have watched her."The last chapter left me very curious about the identity of the messenger. I believe it was a good idea to write it in his POV at the end because I immediately went back, mentally going through the book to the first chapter and trying to find out if I could identify the person, but nope. Zero. The second book is already downloaded on my phone and I am ready to know who the sick bastard is.I was almost always hooked in the story despite the slow pacing and [...]


    27. Please tell me I won't have to wait too long for book 2? It's been a long time since I stayed awake to finish reading a book. Couldn't put it down once I started reading.Warning: The following is just my opinion. Everyone is entitled to their own.What I didn't like so much: Seraph can stand up to her father (she proved it quite a few times) but can't stand up to him enough to actually do something so she and her brother are safer. Example:(view spoiler)[ it's not that hard to install a lock in a [...]


    28. I know I'm not going to be able to do this book just, it was simply that good.It's been awhile since I've stumbled across a book this magnificent and oh I'm so glad I stumbled. I'm having trouble putting words together about this. It's just speechless.So with that in mind The words,sentences,characters, plot, the book. They pull you in. Wrap you up. Till all you hear, see and think is them. I started being captured by the book around nine at night and before I know it it over just like that. A s [...]


    29. After taking an immense (and unexpected) liking to Hereditary, I knew that I'd have to read anything and everything written by Jane Washington. So when I saw she had a new book, and when I saw it was free on only for a few days, I didn't waste any time. I'm still kicking myself for not getting The Soulstoy Inheritance while it was free and I wasn't planning on making that mistake again. I'm not even the least bit ashamed to say I loved this book. I had no idea what it was about because I didn't [...]
