This book is no longer availableHow do you sleep while your planet is dying Where would you turn to when your world turns on you Have you lived a life worthy of being selected as a chos. This is my first review of a book and this one really deserves it The first thing I have to say is that I honestly bought it because I ve read that the character RyanRaighne is based on Ian Somerhalder which I adore as an actor and as an human being I ve been afraid that the story might be some teenie crap but here s the truthI love this book I ve devoured this book I couldn t stop reading it once I ve started and I have literally have lived every single word written in itI cannot even count the thousands of pages I ve read in my almost 34 years on this planet as a bookworm but I have never read a book written with heart and soul than this one You can feel every word you can feel the passion the love the fear and the desperation of the charactersRaighne is SO Ian Somerhalder as we as fans and supporter know him The passion and commitment of this man talking about Raighne as well as about Ian is unbelievable it s stunning If you once have hugged Ian like I had the chance to do you can understand the calming and loving aura of RyanRaighneVaalbara Visions Shadows made me laugh my ass of made me cry my soul out because it 1 is a beautiful story about not only two souls belonging to eachother and 2 it visualizes the condition of our planet and humanity in a kinda frightening way and made me sigh again and again It made me fear for my sons and my family and friends future on this planet which we destroy every single day And it made me afraid that there won t be a Vaalbara for us once the time has come This isn t only a book for Ian lovers or teen romance andor fantasy lovers This is a book for each and every one of us and it should really give us food for thoughtI thank Michelle Horst with all my heart and soul for writing this book and I am waiting eagerly for a seuel

Ve ten chosen humans while fighting the shadows growing in my mind ‘Hope is the heartbeat of the soul’ WARNING This book is recommended for 18 It contains scenes with sex and violen. Whilst I don t try and give away too much in my reviews in terms of important plot points and that stuff in order to do a rounded review I will be mentioning some plot points So before I start just beware that this review does contain some spoilersAislinn is a young teenage girl that is kind of an outcast in her society what with no real parents to speak of and with a rather disturbing talent of being able to see into the future She thinks that her luck is in when she meets a handsome new boy at school called Ryan who seems attracted to her for reasons she can t understand Turns out that this boy is actually from the land of Vaalbara and his real name is Raighne and he s here to take Aislinn back home Turns out that Aislinn s real name is Alchera and she is a Princess of the land She is told that the end of the world is approaching and it s her duty to rescue the ten Chosen who are the ones to carry on the human race after the end She has ten days to rescue them before Earth is destroyed so no pressure thenThe book is told from the POV perspective of Alchera and she is a strong heroine starting off as kinda vulnerable and insecure of herself then gaining strength as the book carries on Often she has conversations with an invisible friend called Sid which are actually some of the funniest scenes in the book So she is definitely a good heroine for this novel especially considering some of the challenges she is about to face Seeing as this book does have a very religious context to it she could be considered a kind of JobeJesus characterNow I have to be honest I am in two minds of how I felt about the actual story of this book Most Young Adult books I ve read tended to be upbeat and with a positive feel to them for the most part This book I have to be honest I found to be a little depressing and dark I m not saying that YA books can t be dark after all The Hunger Games has some pretty dark themes to it and even Harry Potter could be pretty dark sometimes But I can t help but thinking that maybe Vaalbara Visions and Shadows is probably a little TOO dark in places After all it s dealing with the end of the world and the death of an entire race that is not a small subjectI think my biggest problem with it is that I couldn t identify with any of the characters from Vaalbara itself They seemed to be completely ambivalent and uncaring to the destruction of the human race with the exception of the Chosen Even some of the heroes I found to be cold and uncaring so I really couldn t support them Also I didn t like the fact that Alchera despite showing some feelings against this initially made NO attempt to try and stop this from happening and just went along with it She didn t have to have succeeded but for me the story would have been better if she at least made an attempt to save her people so that her humanity wasn t entirely gone There was also a uite nasty torture scene in the middle of the book that I thought was maybe a little too unnecessary and graphicNow I know the above may sound like I m being overly negative but I have to admit I am actually also impressed with it I like it that Michelle Horst doesn t conform to a lot of YA conventions and does something different And in fairness to the book there are some extremely dramatic moments in the book and we do feel Alchera s suffering as she progresses but we do also have some humour to balance it out There is somewhat of a happy ending as well I just wasn t sure I was satisfied with the way the story went about before it got to that moment as it seemed to glance over the fact that many people had diedI appear to have conflicting emotions about this one One part of me thinks that it s a very dramatic and powerful novel that goes against a lot of YA conventions the other thinks that it s too dark and depressing and this may potentially put some readers off However I am going to meet this half way because I don t think this is a bad novel in any way and it actually does have a positive message at its heart If you are prepared to have an open mind and don t mind the dark content then check this one out and be prepared to lose yourself in the drama of the piece
