    You are each other s greatest gift 5 stars Every time, he said Ava every time He loved all of her, the way a dragon should love his rider WOW It just takes me breath away I honestly didn t think it would be possible to love this series anythan I already did, but WOW Teshelle has wrapped me even deeper into her series with this amazing second full length novel So many things went on, a lot of new discoveries, so much that I didn t expect, nor see coming and so very muchst You are each other s greatest gift 5 stars Every time, he said Ava every time He loved all of her, the way a dragon should love his rider WOW It just takes me breath away I honestly didn t think it would be possible to love this series anythan I already did, but WOW Teshelle has wrapped me even deeper into her series with this amazing second full length novel So many things went on, a lot of new discoveries, so much that I didn t expect, nor see coming and so very muchstill to happen While I love that this series is not a simple one, nor is anything explicitly spelled out for you, I still wish that I knewof what was going on I am just too impatient to wait forbooks This series is written with a big picture mindset so not all of your questions or Ava Cale s either are answered in each book Since Vane is the second full novel in The Core series, some questions from Core book 1 might be touched on, expanded on or even answered, but be prepared to have a lotquestions left to be answered in the books to come In my opinion, that is one of the many reasons that I love both this book, and the series I cannot wait to read the next book I absolutely love Teshelle s writing style, the way she has everything unfolding, building up to a great big epic conclusion to an utterly fantastic series, whenever that may be, is one of the many examples of why I think that this has me so obsessed with this series Teshelle has this phenomenal gift for writing and story telling that enables her to be able to write a series of this scale so masterfully so beautifully Ava has spent so much of her life being alone, WANTING to be alone, that she has no idea how to be a friend, daughter, someone who cares, someone who even knows HOW to do any of that, but now she is finding out just why this is Cale is the opposite He has a family, friends, he knows how to talk to people, how to touch hug people Together they try to be what the other needs, even at a great cost to themselves So many shocking devastating parts in here had me gasping, madly reading to see what was going to happen next, even had me sobbing On the flip side, there were quite a few moments where I found myself smiling, chuckling and I even burst out laughing a few times too All in all I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves a very wonderfully written story that encompasses you and sinks you so deep into the pages of the book that you can see hear everything that the characters do, feel what they feel but most importantly, you are entertained from the very start through to the very end And if you are anything like me, you will very quickly become consumed, obsessed fully entranced with this series and will read the books over over again while very im patiently waiting for the next installment, your next Core fix, to take you even deeper in the World of Cale Ava a Dragon his Rider

    Vane takes right off where Core ends For me this was great, as I had finished Core some days ago and the story was still totally fresh in my mind There are a few places which freshen it up a bit but not that many So for somebody who hasn t just read Core, it might be a bit challenging to get into Vane from the very start.This second part adds so muchdetail to the overall fantasy Reading along, the story just gets richer andexiting The wonderful thing about it is, that everything Vane takes right off where Core ends For me this was great, as I had finished Core some days ago and the story was still totally fresh in my mind There are a few places which freshen it up a bit but not that many So for somebody who hasn t just read Core, it might be a bit challenging to get into Vane from the very start.This second part adds so muchdetail to the overall fantasy Reading along, the story just gets richer andexiting The wonderful thing about it is, that everything makes total sense I never got the feeling that any details went forgotten along the way or that any scene was unnecessary It all fits together and makes the overall picture breathtaking It feels as if Teshelle has this huge fantasy world with it s amazing story completely alive in her mind, her detail rich imagination The way she manages to let it unfold into words is pure art.What really amazes me are the number of characters we get to meet and all of their personal relationships between each other All being unique in their own way and fitting perfectly like puzzle pieces when they interact It s easy to totally immerse oneself into the different social and familial structures I really like to live with the characters and follow them on their journey, growing with them and discovering everything there is to be unravelled.The chapters are very well spaced out and split the story up really well, managing to make multiple scenes come alive together, at the same time.Her writing style is very engaging and kept me focused throughout I never got lost or had the feeling that I d missed something.To me, the end was totally unexpected Very curious to see how the next part takes off and how the story carries on

    I loved the first book which I didn t expect at all For everyone who liked the first book this book is a must read It is as well written as the first one and, as far as I know, it has a unique plot I have never read something similar There is one thing which bothered me a little In this book Ava struggles to be alone and independent from everyone because of her phoenix nature But I don t remember her being that extreme in the first book Looking forward to book 3.

    I really enjoyed this book Although, I didn t think it was as good as the first one There were some plot jumps that made the story a little harder to hollow than the first book Overall, I enjoyed the continuation of the story and look forward to the next book.

    I liked it, but sometimes I had to skim the next paragraphs to figure out who is the next chapter talking about I got lost in some situation, I didn t know how or when someone appeared or who were on the room There we some writing mistakes but nothing too hard to undertand.

    I didn t like this book as much as the first one It seemed disjointed and all over the place for me It still has an interesting concept that s why I finished it but I don t know if I ll read the next one Rating is closer to 2.5 than 3.
