summary Ê E-book, or Kindle E-pub ↠ Dan Rix

Ob Aaron Harper is scheduled to meet his half in twenty nine days and he doesn’t buy a word of that entanglement crap So what if he and his half were born the same day and share a spooky psychic connection Big deal After breaking one too many teenage girls’ hearts he’ll stick to brawling with the douchebag rugby players any dayUntil the day a new girl arrives at school and threatens everything he takes for grantedCold and unapproachable Amber Lilian hates the growing list of similarities between her and the one boy she can’t read Aaron born the same day both stubborn both terrified of meeting their halves All the reason not to trust him That she would rather die. I'm a total sucker for plots that involve some kind of explanation for soul mates In Entanglement's case that would be halves Basically a pair of babies born at the exact same time share molecules due to uantum entanglement and they're destined to be together They are the halves of a whole I was excited to see how this scientific explanation would play out but unfortunately none of it worked for me I found myself annoyed bored and confused Entanglement started off pretty good Aaron has some scar tissue in his brain possibly from a trauma at birth so he's told he may not have that connection with his half when the time comes He's okay with that because he doesn't really like this whole idea of entanglement where you're forced to be with someone forever There's also mentions of cults who bring children together before their clairvoyant channel the part of the brain responsible for all this is fully developed causing permanent damage in the girl While I wasn't happy that it's always the girl who is injured I loved the idea of cults screwing with this process for their own sick gain But ultimately that angle turned into one big messThe world building of Entanglement is not very good We're told that halves were discovered about 80 years ago by Schroedinger Before that no one knew of the clairvoyant channel but apparently it always existed People lived without halves for thousands of years with no side effects and yet after their discovery people would get physical symptoms of being away from their halves How does that work That part of the brain would have to be somehow activated and I doubt Schroedinger did that to every single person on earth Just knowing something exists doesn't all of a sudden make these others things exist It made no senseThen there's the rule that halves cannot meet until their 18th birthday and they have to meet on that day because of reasons It's explained that before then the brain isn't fully developed so problems arise as I mentioned with the cults But why do they need to be brought together on exactly their 18th birthday The brain doesn't magically finish development at that time It is mentioned a few times that their channels would start seeking out their halves at age 18 and then the bond will happen only then Except that they can bond with their half earlier it just makes the girl a zombie not an actual zombie And accidental meetings must happen since they're suppose to be born close together although it's also said they can be ANYWHERE in the world So I don't get it Either they can bond before 18 or they can't until 18 which is itI also really disliked the characters of Entanglement Aaron is kind of boring and he's also not a hottheaded hearttrob as the blurb suggests As far as I can tell he's never had a girlfriend until he met Amber Who is not the new girl at school like the blurb says He meets her at a party that another school was throwing on the beach But anyway Amber is the worst She lies And lies And lies some And then when she's admitting to her lies she's still lying But Aaron is in love with her and would do anything for her but she's not his half But she might be his half But she can't be his half But maybe Or not Either way I could not see what he saw in her She just lied and had a bad attitude since the moment he met her Entanglement just majorly failed for me The uantum entanglement explanation for soulmates didn't make sense I liked the basis of this idea but nothing came together to really make me believe this phenomenon I didn't like the characters and therefore didn't care what happened to them And there's so much flip flopping and back and forthing that it made my head hurtRead of my reviews at Pinkindle Reads Reviews

EntanglementThan surrender herself as her half’s property is none of his damn business But once lost in Aaron’s dangerous jet black eyes she’s already surrendered than she cares to admitTangled in each other’s self destructive lives Aaron and Amber learn the secret behind their linked births and why they feel like halves but unless they can prove it before they turn eighteen Aaron faces a lifetime alone in a world where everyone else has a soul mate and he’ll have to watch Amber give herself to a boy who intends to possess not only her body but also a chunk of her soulENTANGLEMENT a word YA thriller will appeal to readers of Michael Grant's GONE and Ally Condie’s MATCHED. INITIAL THOUGHTSApproaching the book I thought it was a dystopian novel as that is what it is labelled as on couk however on Goodreads it is labelled as a YA Thriller Hence I wasn't sure what to expect but was hoping for a dystopian angle as that is one of my favourite genresIn fact here are my notes I wrote upon reading the first 55% or so of the book Looking forward to a dystopian themed book this book feels paranormal than dystopian There's the mysterious Juvengamy Brotherhood How will Aaron react when he meets his half as he has scar tissue on his clairvoyance channelMY REVIEWI received an e copy of this book in exchange for my honest review and posting that review as part of the Oops I Read It Again Blog Tours The cover in my opinion features the image of Amber when she has been given her half of the tattoo that matches her male half There are also words symbols and numbers to the right that could be from a computer read out or scientific notes I believe this is the second cover for this book and I do honestly find this cover appealing than the first attempt So would the cover make me pick it up in a book store Honestly it may not be the first book I would pick up from the shelf but I would certainly pick it up to learn about it by reading the BlurbSo the basics of the book are not so basic they are in truth uite complex so I'll domy best to simplify things Everyone has their own significant half kind of like their soul mateIt is all pre destined by the date and time they are born Halves are born on the same day and almost the same time too A Registry is kept that lists every child born On the day of your eighteenth birthday you go to an appointment at the Chamber Of Halves and look into a machine in the machine you see the eyes of your intended half and are then put together When Halves are first put together they need to be together as if separated they feel an anxiety This means that should one half die the other experiences what is called half death and also finally dies too All this Halves theorybusinessway of living has only been in place for the last eighty years or so and is like most things open to abuse People still want to fix the halves together earlier than their eighteenth birthdays in fact in some cases these matches have been made so early that the matches have always been together since birth This practice is called Juvengamy Juvengamy is illegal but still happens as there is a Juvengamy Brotherhood at one point in the story Aaron one of the main characters id invited to a meeting and is shocked to see only male members within the meetings whilst some women are sat out in the cars outside the meeting with totally blank expressions Dr Casler Silavio is deeply involved with the scientific specifics of the whole process In fact he has come up with certain operations that make a half almost always the female a docile pleasant obedient half Dr Casler has also been playing about with the true half matches He has taken a new match for his son Clive Clive's first match was put together with Clive very young and one day in a temper fit Clive knocked his 4yr old match down a well killing her Dr Casler operated on Clive and the head of the Brotherhood chose another match for Clive Clive and his new match are destined to be the heir and heiress of the Brotherhood So the new match Amber has her own real match and her made match Clive what happens when Amber meets her real match Can he step in and save her Can he stop her becoming the empty shell half of CliveI think I've explained as much as I possibly can before giving away spoilers I did become attached to some of the characters such as Amber the intended empty vessel heiress Aaron a boy who apparently doesn't have a match find out about that by reading the book There's also Aaron's rugby playing friend Buff Normandy but will Buff be there when it really counts when Aaron really needs him There's rugby rivalry as Clive and his friend Dominic play for Corona Blanca Corona Blanca and Buff Aarons team Pueblo are arch rivals too to add even animosity between the guys in the bookAt times the book pace did seem a little slow for my taste and though the book has the dystopian element of the Halves Theory I would place it in a Sci Fi Thriller categorySo did I enjoy the book Overall yes just at times the pace slowed a little too much for my taste Also I really wanted to shake Aaron and Amber at times too Would I recommend the book Yes but to Sci Fi Thriller Fans than Dystopian Fans Would I read a BK#2 Well the book could have come to a natural end but then again right near the very end Aaron see's something familiar out of the corner of his eye a guy in a grey hoodie Could it be Clive So I'd definitely check out the blurb of a Bk#2 to see what direction the plot would be going in Would I read other books by Dan Rix I reckon I'd take a serious look at boos by this Author so yes As there aren't 12 stars it has to be 4 stars really I feel it a 35 to 40

HOLY MOLY I LOVED EVERYTHING Review coming soonAlso posted in Oops I Read A Book AgainWoah Just woah I finished reading it days ago and actually I got late for my thesis experiment that day but the high it has given me hasn't subsided yet So a little backstory first on how I came upon this AMAZING bookDan followed me on Twitter so I got curious and checked his profile Seeing that he's an author I followed back and clicked the link to his blog I always do this by the way Plus I love following authors I perused his blog and found free chapters of Entanglement Having nothing to do at 430 AM I slept too early that night and hence waking up too early I started reading the free chapters And boy did I ever stopAfter writhing in pain over not being able to read the whole book I tweeted Dan I whined why it's 499 on for me when it's just 299 I was ready to purchase it when Dan told me he'd send me a free copy My eyes went OO and I'm sure I hyperventilated in class I can't believe my luck Dan said it was my enthusiasm I abused the exclamation mark and all sorts of giggly smileys and then he sent me Entanglement For free For a review Please remind me to stop side commenting all the time HahaThe rest was history I barely slept reading this book I couldn't stop It was everything I expected of the free chapters and So let's get to that review shall weIn Dan's bio there's a part there which says His favorite novels include Michael Grant's Gone Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why and Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code High stakes high concept page turners That's what he likes to read and that's what he likes to write And he certainly lived up to it Entanglement got high stakes all around and it's definitely a high concept and it is no doubt a page turner If you could have seen the eyebags I got from reading through the night That's what actually made me read this book the mention of Gone by Michael Grant Loved that book in great awe of the premise I thought that if this book is even remotely like Gone then it must be good And it's true It's not just good it's supercalifreakinawesomeamazeballsThe novel is set in Tularosa a fictionalized Santa Barbara California and we have two seventeen year olds for our protagonists Meet Aaron Harper a setter of Pueblo High's volleyball team and Amber Lilian the new girl at Corona Blanca High In this time on your eighteenth birthday you're destined to meet your half your soulmate Halves are connected through their clairvoyant channels in their brains which also means you die when your half dies Something like that Honestly you're better off reading the blurbsummary HahaDan Rix has created a very believable world in Entanglement which makes me SO giddy It is set in the future but a not so distant future so it won't take you time to get used to the setting However of course there's this clairvoyant channel that Schrödinger discovered that connects two people and all the talks of uantum entanglement which is a true occurrence Of course Dan Rix had his liberty of assuming entanglement in humans as his premise I love his scientific take on the whole soulmates thing which is very refreshing I might be biased because I come from a science background and I love sci fi but aren't you tired of people being soulmates because they're spelled Or plain destined That it's written in the stars or something like that In here it's all about the science More points for Dan for making the science of his novel easy to understand He guides the reader every step of the way without becoming pure telling and no showingSetting check Premise check But what is a good plot when you have MEH characters I am glad to announce that Aaron and Amber what cute names aren't your stock characters They act and talk their age they're smart and very engaging All the other characters as well are developed and not easy to categorize into good or bad Amber is surely that elusive new girl but she has depth and she's her own person with her own motives and her own ideas Clive and Dr Selavio were really fleshed out also So on the character front I have nothing to complainThe dialogue was snappy as the whole novel is Every scene every line has a purpose which I VERY MUCH appreciate As much as I love descriptions this type of novel relies on its being fast pacedHigh stakes Definitely Life and death situations abound at every corner Even with the romance the stakes are high This novel is so gripping and the pace keeps you on the edge Whilst being full of action too the romance department did not lack in any way In fact it was riveting I want an Aaron Harper of my own HeeheeThe cover Yes I need to ask Dan who did the cover slash where did the image come from because it's SUPER COOL DNA yeah babyYou know what I really find it hard to review books that I love because I only end up spazzing So if you think my enthusiasm towards this book shows in my review you are absolutely right HaI never knew following Dan back on Twitter checking out his blog reading the free chapters and tweeting him while hyperventilating and spazzing will get me a free copy of the book and a new five star book for me So for all you out there take a chance at self published books and even traditionally published ones Surely you might pick the worst book EVAH but maybe just maybe you'll find a gem and all the disappointments of the past are worth itAbsolutely definitely can't wait for the seuel That's my only complain That I have to wait for so long for the seuel Huhuhuhu this is torture
