    "This novel was the best yet in this series! Celaena struggles with who she is and who she wants to be after her discovery of her heritage. We have all fallen in love with Calaena's struggles and personality, and it just keeps getting better in this book! I truly love this series, and this 3rd book is no different. "

    "This book is not bad. However, it would have been nice if some information was left out. It makes it seem like the book is longer than it needs to be, making it hard to finish the book."

    "One thing that will stand out to you in this book is the characters. Wow there are so many good characters to learn and read about and there is no way i can explain it all . You will have to read it for yourself and think to yourself wow this is definitely amazing how these characters are developed. The way the settings and mood is set is second to none. Just love love this book"

    "I don't read romances, and especially not teen romances- they're either too mushy, too unreal or too weird (like loving a vampire!). So I was a bit skeptical when I downloaded the Kindle version of this book. Isla and the Happily Ever After is a quick, entertaining read but it's not pulpy. It's the kind of story that makes you go "Awww....." but the author has made the setting contemporary and identifiable (among the privileged lot). They may be "rich" kids but they go to school, have rules to follow (which they like to break), and they're addicted to texting. And, like all teens, they have urges and of course they get into trouble. The characters are mostly well-etched and the sub-plots fit neatly into the big plot."

    "The things people will supposedly do for money! Enjoyable and thrilling to read, a guilty pleasure about life in a small boring town and just what people will do to get away from it."

    "This book is not really YA, as it is listed as for ages 12-18. It sort of slides in the young adult category, and readers of that genre may like it, but I think it is written for a younger audience."

    "I don't know what it is about dystopian fiction, but it's got my teenaged daughter hooked. She liked this one. I have to add, it wasn't her favorite (she didn't love the main character), but the story was powerful and she enjoyed the premise. I'd say if your kid is like mine - then this is a pretty good novel. Also, the kindle download is pretty economical, so if you have a kindle - I'd try that out! She's got a whole bunch of other books that your teen (or perhaps you?) might enjoy. "
