My Journey in Writing

My name is Lynne Stringer and I love writing! Of course, that’s not all I love. I also love reading books, especially ones that take me out of the every day and into a new world. It doesn’t have to be a completely imaginary world, either. Anything with fascinating characters and interesting storylines will do. My first young adult novel, The Heir, was accepted for publication by Wombat Books and released on 1 June 2013. It is the first book in the Verindon trilogy. It’s so exciting to have a real copy of my book in my hands.

The One - Kiera Cass

I've given this four stars, but with some reservations. It certainly had more action and plot development than the first two books and I enjoyed how that went. It was interesting to see the continued development of America's character, and I was relieved to discover that she started to pin down her feelings to just one man instead of two.
However, this part of the plot was still the part I found the most annoying. While I understand that how this plays out is inherent in the premise of the trilogy, there was so little progress in it. Usually it was two steps forward, three steps back, and after a while that became annoying.
I still think the story would have been much more succinct and paced more effectively if there had only been two books instead of three. However, it was still enjoyable, if frustrating at times.
