Review: Ordinary - Lindy Zart

Reviewer: Brittany
Rating: 5 out of 5 Fairies
Upon reading the synopsis of this book I thought I might like it. Once I finally started reading it, I was utterly confused. The synopsis didn't match up with like the first four chapters! What I was reading was enjoyable, but not what I expected.

I love Honor as a character. She's so kind, mature, and constantly concerned with others around her. As stated in the book many times, she lives up to her name. She is definitely honorable. The fact that she is constantly standing up for people who are being mistreated just made me love her even more. When she went to Christians home to check on him, I was in awe. She truly cared about others, even when she had places to be. Even with his mother treating her like she did, she continued to be concerned. She's gonna be a special UDK. I just know it.

Ryder. Ryder. Ryder. You evil little man you. I knew something wasn't right when he met her in the restroom. The dialogue they had screamed creep! And then the fact that he was constantly monitoring her and finding reasons to interact with her, only screamed desperation even more. He's a cold-hearted man, and I think he's gonna try to turn Honor cold-hearted as well. Good luck with that one buddy.

Nealon is a confusing person. He has mood swings worse than a hormonal teenager. Seriously! In the beginning he's seems to have a heart and then BAM! outta nowhere he becomes cold and starts calling Honor by her last name. And he screams those horrible, hateful things at her. He's got a heart and it shows at times. But he also knows how to appear cold. I'm sure he's had a rough past and that's what made him that way, but sheesh! Lighten up a little mister.

I gotta give Honor kudos. She is one heck of a fighter. When they come for her once she had started the transformation she was not going with them. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Once she was finally captured and started her training she gave it her all. She read what she was supposed to, did her physical training (regardless of whether or not Ryder was unwelcomed by her side), and still found a way to remain who she is. She refuses to change into the cold-hearted people that she is surrounded by. And thank goodness for that. I think she's gonna be Christians savior. And on that note...WHAT THE HELL, RYDER?!?!?!

And talk about a cliffhanger. When I saw the words to be continued, I thought my eyes were going to pop outta my head. I was. SO. not ready for it to end. And now I'm absolutely dying for the next one. PLEASE!!! I'm begging you. Put me outta my misery, Lindy Zart. Please. I NEED to know what happens next....

Because of that bloody cliffhanger, I'll bite hook, line, and sinker. 5 stars because I'm as addicted as...well...as an addict lol.

There are three kinds of people in the world: those who are alive, those who are undead, and those who can see the undead.

Honor Rochester found out she's one of the three, and it's not the one she would prefer to be.

She can accept her fate and live as is decided for her. Or not live at all.
