Antithesis [Review + Giveaway] A heroine with one arm? YES!


Goodreads | Inkspell Publishing
My name is Gavyn.

Liam doesn’t care that I only have one arm. He actually likes my red hair and freckles. I might forgive him for kidnapping me.

My name is Gavyn.

I lost my Liam. I’ve lost them all. And now it’s my job to make sure they don’t show up again. 

My name is Gavyn.

I had a life with Liam, but he couldn’t give me what I need. Then I killed his father. I don’t expect he’ll forgive me for that.

My name is Gavyn.

First of all, let me just say that I love, love, love characters with physical or mental limitations. I am tired of PERFECT characters who are just sooo pretty and witty. I mean, I love em, but sometimes I want to read about a different character besides the strong willed gorgeous brunette with long, beautiful hair. You know the theme. Anyway, I love that and the.. um.. world she creates. ;) I am trying to do this without spoiling it for anyone who wants to read the book. 

Gavyn is dorky and not very confident. She was born with only one arm which is a little hard on her sometimes. Her personality was pretty cute. 

Liam is sort of a cocky mess. He made me laugh sometimes and for that, he is okay with me. 

Like I stated previously, I love the idea of the book. By the way... I was a little thrown off with the repetitive "my name is Gavyn" thing going on in the description, but totally mystified by the whole... I dunno.. KILLING THE FATHER/ ONE ARM thing.  Okay, that is more than one thing and cannot really be joined with a slash, but I'm not editing it. *pouts* Also.... again, the description... eh. Don't be put off by it. It is very.. vague. But I guess that helps draw you in. I mean, it did get me to sign on for the tour- after all. *Shrug* Maybe I am just over-thinking it. 

Also... just...... *sigh* just a cool story with interesting concepts. I am running out of words here. lol. I have never read anything like it (well, I read one book with a SORT of similar-ish thingy going on, but it was not written as well as this one. But I digress.) (:
