Gemini of Emreina Blog Tour [Review + Giveaway]

My entire life has been a lie: My parents didn't die in a car accident. They're not even dead. I'm not American. I'm not even human. I have strange powers, and I'm the heir to the throne of the planet Emreiana. 

If I take the crown, I have to leave behind everything I have known here on Earth. I would have to say goodbye to my friends and leave behind Kyle, the boy I've loved since I was five. If I don't, then I risk the Bremoir finding me here on Earth and destroying everything I love.

Kristen was born in Alabama in 1991 and still resides there today. She has been writing since the 6th grade. However, she did not begin to write fiction until she was 15. In 2009, Kristen had an idea that would spark the concept for Gemini of Emréiana that she would later write in 2011. During that time, she met her husband. They married in August of 2012. When Kristen is not writing, she spends time watching Korean Drama's or creating SIM's 3 stories. Kristen continues to write the next novels to the Gemini Trilogy. She also plans to release a new series later on in the year.

This was a sweet story about a young girl coming to terms with learning that she is not human, and that basically, most everything she has known is a lie. She has to prepare herself to leave behind her friends, her school, and her very sweet boyfriend, Kyle. I love the basic idea of the book and was totally fascinated with the concept. It reminded me of Superman (yes, I am a nerd..) and how he had to leave his world as a baby and leave his race behind. I found the romance between Kyle and Carson cute. Because of this, I was reluctant to accept Carson's growing affection for her guardian. 

While the story was interesting and I liked the characters well enough, I feel like the progression in the beginning of the book was a little..... abrupt. Like instead of easing the readers into the book, all sorts of information was dumped on the main character and the readers. It gets better as the book goes on, though. [: There was also some grammatical speed- bumps that interrupted the flow while I was reading. However, despite these comments, this is an interesting debut and I am looking forward to learning what will happen to Carson in the next book. 

 the author is (awesomely) offering a paperback copy of Gemini of Emreina. [: US ONLY, however. Good luck <3
