    One thought on “Mystic City”

    1. I m engaged to Thomas and yet I let another boy kiss me And I kissed him back The worst part He s not even a regular boy he s a rebel mystic Oh no Of all the people suffering in the world, all the injustice going on in the Depths of futuristic Manhattan, THIS IS THE WORST THING EVER That s great That s wonderful Good for you, sweetie I just don t want your sort in a sci fi dystopian novel Get the fuck outta here.This book has1 A weak, spoiled, wealthy TSTL socialite heroine whose attempts to do [...]

    2. I need to stop being lured in by blurbs that mention The Hunger Games and sparkly covers though it is one of most enchanting covers I ve seen in a while A much accurate blurb would be a Romeo and Juliet retelling with magical people who are nowhere as cool as X men I didn t go into this book with high expectations, but I was expecting a lot action that wasn t made up of aimless running around and a lot less love proclamations In the end, I couldn t get past the extremely predictable plot, flat [...]

    3. DNF No ratingBoring and predictable and I have far better books to be spending my time reading.Insta love and love triangles I ve developed a zero tolerance policy and I can t stand for the bullshit.I tried But no Just sorry, but no.

    4. I would shelve Theo Lawrence s young adult debut Mystic City as Futuristic Romantasy, if I had to be precise It takes place in a future, but alternative version of Manhattan The plot relies heavily on its fantastic elements, namely on the existence of Mystics, who are people who have magic, which is used as energy, as the stuff which makes skyscrapers float high above the flooded landscape with its crumbling, moldy buildings, and as the basic ingredient of a wonder drug called Stic And the story [...]

    5. ZUR AUFMACHUNGJa, was soll man dazu sagen au er PERFEKT Selbst der typisch deutsche Beititel macht wirklich SINN und ich bin einfach nur noch immer total begeistert von diesem Cover mit Aria und Manhatten im Hintergrund.ZUM BUCHMeine Erwartungen waren hoch Eigentlich zu hoch, wenn man bedenkt wie h ufig ein sch nes Cover und eine sch ne Kurzbeschreibung auch das einzig sch ne sind, das ein Buch besitzt Und dieses Buch hier wollte ich von dem Augenblick an haben, als ich Cover und Kurzbeschreibun [...]

    6. Amnesia Tragedy Tampered memories Political ruses Controlling and manipulative parents who treat their daughter as an asset to be traded to the most profitable buyer.This book is interesting Not really in terms of the plot itself, but the author s goals Lawrence was attempting to create an original plot by twisting the storyline all over the place And an alarming majority of these twists were extremely predictable, and foreshadowing was prevalent throughout the ENTIRE book Lack of emotion was a [...]

    7. Ich habe dieses Buch verschlungen Immer wenn ich im Championselect, im Loadingscreen oder sonst wo warten musste nat rlich wenn ich nicht am PC war Jetzt kann ich endlich Essen DD

    8. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty A girl tries to move on with her life after losing her memory, but moving on means being a puppet in a political race with her parents.Opening Sentence The party has begun without me.The Review Aria knows she loves Thomas Foster At least that s what everyone is telling her Loving someone with no memory of ever meeting them can be pretty tough, even if she does have flashes of memories sneaking out late at night, meeting in the ghetto area of the De [...]

    9. 3.5 4 ich kann mich nicht entscheiden VornewegIch habe diese Reihe bei Thalia f r 5.99 pro Band gekauft Keine Ahnung, ob ich die B cher sonst gekauft h tte, aber bisher bereue ich es nicht .Meine Meinung Ehrlich gesagt hatte ich eine reine Fantasy Geschichte erwartet, aber ich w rde Mystic City eher als Dystopie mit Urban Fantasy Elementen einstufen Mit dem Einstieg hatte ich so meine Probleme, da erstmal nicht viel geschieht Die Protagonistin Aria hat einen Teil ihrer Erinnerungen verloren und [...]

    10. This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic NerdMY THOUGHTSI ve been wanting to read this book for awhile, so I felt like I hit the jackpot when I found this book and it s sequel at my local used bookstore Overall, this book did not disappoint This book take place in a futuristic dystopian New York City There are two ruling families, the Roses and the Fosters, and everyone in the city has to choose sides between them Aria has just recovered after ODing off of Stix a drug and is now to m [...]

    11. 3,5 5J ai trouv le concept tr s int ressant et j ai beaucoup aim l univers Aria est un personnage assez charismatique, assez kick ass ce que j appr cie et Hunter, m me s il ne m a pas fait tant d effet tait pas mal dans son genre Simplement, a manquait cruellement de punch pour moi et c tait long Si l histoire avait faire 70 pages de moins, je pense que l on se serait concentr sur le principal et a m aurait s rement captiv e davantage Mais a reste une bonne lecture et la fin du tome 1 m a vraime [...]

    12. This book had such an interesting premise, and I was really looking forward to it, but overall, it was disappointingly just okay.Predictable Sadly, I was able to guess what was going to happen after reading the first couple of chapters I mean, yes, I had an idea from the summary, but this book did not have any twists or turns or any surprises with one exception the kiss did make me think WTH, but that was it I guessed what was really going on, the whole romance thing, who was related to who, and [...]

    13. 3.5 5La historia es muy atrapante Un Romeo y Julieta moderno, que me ha encantado Estoy deseando leer la segunda parte

    14. 3.5 starsMystic City has just about everything one would enjoy in an escape It s has a quaint Romeo and Juliet story line, a political background, a sci fi flare and magic laced in every page Add conspiracy, betrayal, true love and tainted memory lost and how could you go wrong Theo Lawrence pens a brilliant imaginative and creative world It s set in a futuristic Manhattan and there are two kinds of people One are the Mystics who have special powers and forces of energy They are meant to be dang [...]

    15. If Romeo and Juliet and superpowers and were involved in political gang wars, yep, it would be MYSTIC CITY.Top marks for world building Wow Just wow With delicious and subtle details, the world of MYSTIC CITY goes down with a big thumbs up from me Techno and lavish, the author used the perfect combo of words to draw me into this crumbling version of America I saw it I felt it The colours, tastes, sights, and explosions Oh yeah, I was there Plus, superpowers Any book can be improved if you add in [...]

    16. Auch beim zweiten Mal lesen, hat mir das Buch echt gut gefallen.Ich mag diese dystopische, paranormale Romeo und Julia Geschichte Das Setting ist auch klasse Bin auf Teil 2 gespannt.

    17. Review also posted at Young Adult HollywoodMystic City is a futuristic fantasy book It follows the story of Aria Rose who doesn t have any recollection of falling in love with her betrothed Thomas Foster, the son of their family s sworn enemy Their marriage will reunite the two families and end the generation feud of their clan While Aria fills the gaps of her missing memories , she meets the rebel mystic Hunter from Depths.I ve rated Mystic City 3.8 Stars which means I enjoyed it thoroughly and [...]

    18. This review contains spoilers, but trust me, it won t make any difference.Not so far in the future, New York is a city of underwater streets infested with the malnourished poor called the Depths and towering skyscrapers graced by the wealthy elite the Aeries The Aeries is divided between two powerful families, the Fosters and the Roses Aria Rose, seventeen and beautiful, wakes up one day to the news that she is engaged to Thomas Foster, son of her father s rival, and that they re to be married o [...]

    19. 4.5 StarsI was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book through NetGalley and I am so glad I requested this title When I was looking through the available titles from Random House, I was immediately drawn to Mystic City because of the cover art It is such a gorgeous cover that I immediately wanted to know what the book was about Mystic City is the first book in a dystopianesque trilogy set in future Manhattan The world has been severely affected by global warming and most of Manhattan is now [...]

    20. I hate it when I get sucked in by a pretty cover.This book hit all of my eye rolling buttons Love triangle with a clear winner and loser pretending to be all dramatic, Satan spawn evil bad guys, ridiculously good yet inexplicably hated and repressed good guys, ruggedly handsome love interest who, no joke, plays guitar and has a propensity for saving damsels when they re attacked by thugs in the slums because that s how that works, right Girl goes into bad part of town and is immediately attacked [...]

    21. Was super excited until the other guy was mentioned and that always means a love triangle Now im less excited.

    22. Ever since I was a little girl, I have wanted to fall in love The love you see on TV or read about in books, where you find your missing half the person you were meant to be with forever and suddenly you re complete That s the sort of love my parents say I share with Thomas Why, then, when he touches me, does it merely feel like a touch I thought true love would sear me Mystic City, p 15The Gist Aria Rose has been told she s been having a secret romance with Thomas, the son of the Roses politica [...]

    23. Aria Rose is the daughter of one of the ruling families in Mystic City engaged to Thomas, the son of the rival ruling family With an upcoming election, their marriage is the perfect way to unite the humans against mystics, humans with magical powers who are drained of their powers The only problem with the engagement, is that Aria has overdosed on Sic, a mystic infused drug causing her to forget her entire relationship with Thomas.As Aria pieces her memory together, she meets Hunter, a handsome [...]

    24. Pretty predictable but entertaining nonetheless I just didn t like how long Aria was without her memories and not seeing of how Aria initially met Hunter, so that was weird and made it feel like a second book vs first book I did like the characters, and the fact that Mystics seemed X men like Full review on my blog literarydust.wordpress 20

    25. 2.5Kitap boyunca s k ld m, son 100 sayfas n da atlaya atlaya okudum Kitap m k t yd yoksa ben distopya t r n ok okudu umdan m b yle oldu anlamad m, biraz distopyalardan uzak durmam gerekiyor san r m.

    26. I really wish I d liked the book It wasn t a bad book, but it simply wasn t convincing enough I loved the idea of a dystopical world, almost destroyed by the global warming, humanity, its fears and intolerance.I loved that people feared and hated mystics and I wanted to love and adore the rebels But there were so little told about them We, readers, need some instructions I know that the author tried, but I needed a bit world building and history and a bit less RomeoJuliet crap I got it they we [...]

    27. martinabookaholic.wordpress.cMeine Gedanken zum Buch Ich habe relative unbefangen mit dem Buch gestartet, da ich gute, wie auch schon schlechtere Rezensionen dazu gelesen habe Daher war es dann f r mich doch berraschend gut und hat mir von der Atmosph re, sowie den Charakteren und generellen Handlung wirklich gut gefallen.Aber fangen wir am besten von vorne an, wo wir Aria begleiten, als sie auf ihrer Verlobungsfeier ist Eigentlich sollte das ein gl cklicher Moment f r sie sein, doch Aria hat ih [...]

    28. Actual Rating 1.75 starsMystic City is a book that I have been waiting for since it appeared on Netgalley Edelweiss There were two reasons, as there usually are in my stories One is because I was under the impression that the main character was black and the cover model was too they aren t sadly The second reason is that the book simply sounds good Sadly however, it failed to live up to my expectations by a lot Its downfalls are centered around one main cause Characters The characters weren t te [...]

    29. FINAL RATING 2.00 STARS CATCHALLSo, despite all the mixed reviews I saw this book getting, I was reasonably certain that I d love it I was so, so wrong Obviously I need to stop being shallow and being drawn in by tempting blurbs and shiny, shiny covers that look like tiny pieces of heaven I even read the first fifty pages in the bookstore and really enjoyed it Unfortunately, that was pretty much the best part of the book Unfortunately, it was downhill from thereE HEROINEARIAAria has got to be on [...]
