From Gods (Descendant Prophecies Book 1) by Mary Ting

Please note there are slight spoilers in my review

I must admit this book was hard to stick with, but I kept thinking give it more time. However, even up to chapter ten I was considering giving up. 
At the start it just seemed very slow starting and having no direction, as though the author was just writing anything until they got to the more action parts of the book. 
I found some conversations just went on and on and talking about things that were completely irrelevant.
Parts of the book were very poorly written and there seemed to be far too much of so-and-so said, then so-and-so said, and then some responses to conversations made no sense what-so-ever!
The parts of the book where one character was texting another seemed to go on forever and was just dragged out to long. Example :
miss you
miss you too
(and that is a short example)

Some things were also very unbelievable. In one scene Skylar goes to buy everyone beer and when she gets asked for ID her thought is : "I forgot i couldn't buy beer because i had never bought one before"
Really? Come on. She randomly forgot she was 18. It would have been more believable if she has said she forgot her fake ID or something. 
In another scene Mason saves Skylar from one of his brothers, asks her to stay in his bed with her so he can protect her and then wakes up in the morning and has no idea why she was there
Fair enough he was drugged but when she says about his brother he remembers instantly. (not something you would forget in a hurry)
The story didn't really hold my attention at all, the ending is left on a big cliff hanger but even that isn't making me consider reading the next book

Two of of five stars for this one!
