forbidden love

bookcover
Author: Cassandra Clare

Clary just wishes her life could go back to normal, but it can't. She's a demon-hunting Shadowhunter, with a mother that's in a mystical coma. Things won't be fixed unless she gets rid of the evil Valentine, who is also her father. To complicate things further; downworlders are being murdered and the Soul-Sword, one of the mortal instruments, has been stolen. When the Inquisitor comes around the only one available to blame is Clary's brother, Jace.

At birth, Ella is inadvertently cursed by an imprudent fairy named Lucinda, who bestows on her the "gift" of obedience. Anything anyone tells her to do, Ella must obey. Another girl might have been cowed by this affliction, but not feisty Ella: "Instead of making me docile, Lucinda's curse made a rebel of me. Or perhaps I was that way naturally." When her beloved mother dies, leaving her in the care of a mostly absent and avaricious father, and later, a loathsome stepmother and two treacherous stepsisters, Ella's life and well-being seem in grave peril. But her intelligence and saucy nature keep her in good stead as she sets out on a quest for freedom and self-discovery, trying to track down Lucinda to undo the curse, fending off ogres, befriending elves, and falling in love with a prince along the way.

Title: Stolen
Author: Lucy Christopher

I found this book really good. She's writing all this down after it happened to Ty, the man who captured her. He had been following her around ever since he first saw her when she was ten and he was nearly nineteen. He finally found his chance when she was getting ready to get on a plane to go to Vietnam. He offered to pay for her coffee and then he slipped some drugs into her drink that made her drowsy. He then disguised her as someone else and took her onto a plane to Australia, his home land. She then learns to bond with her captor until she's bitten by a snake and he gives up everything just so she can live, even if it means he has to go to prison. Everything is written as a letter to him. She never calls him Ty, just 'you'. She writes this while awaiting his trial. It's good if you're into a little romance, but not a lot. It's also good if you like books about crime, kidnapping is crime after all. Also, it's good if you like hearing about the desert, snakes, Australia, camels, and art.

This book really surprised me. I love the opera "The Magic Flute" by Mozart. I love his characters, his plot line, his message...everything. When I heard about "Sunlight and Shadow", I did not expect much. How could anyone make Die Zauberflote (The original title, in German) any better than it already is? I was happily surprised. "Sunlight and Shadow", like the opera, follows the story of Mina, or Pamina, daughter of the Mage of the Day (Sarastro) and Queen of the Night (whose name is also Pamina). Mina's father has stolen her the night before he was scheduled to get her. He didn't think the Queen of the Night would come through with her side of their bargain. She would have. But he stole Mina away from her, and is going to force her to marry a man she doesn't love.

I would summarize the book like this. Edward the vampire leaves Forks WA and leaves Bella because he thinks it will be better for her. Bella then goes into denial and he cant live without Edward but she doesn’t realize how many other people care for her like Jacob or Mike, Jacob is in love with bella and bella doesn’t like him and Jacob has a lot on his plate right now with changing in to a werewolf. Jacob is a werewolf and bella finds out and Jacob like forgets about bella when he’s changing into a werewolf. Edward tries to kill himself because he thinks bella is dead.
