Rules Are Meant To Be Broken The Lines of Marsden #1

The lines of Marsden were born into existence for a reason to right the wrongs that had once taken place Destiny fated that they must destroy the Eldren before Evil winsM Review posted at The Armchair Reader35 starsThis is a bit of a difficult book to review I wouldn t say I had a hard time getting into it but I did take some breaks early on while reading trying to wrap my head around what was going on There s no mistaking that this book is the setup to a series but I found on one of my breaks a comment by NJ Nielsen on GoodReads that this is a 3 part series 3 Lines of Marsden which are family descendant lines which total 18 books 12 of which were already mostly written So that helped me wrap my brain around why I felt like the uestions were mounting and mounting and I wasn t getting many answers at the least this is much like a 6 part very long novel That helps because I like reading vast works and now that I know what I m getting into and I can understand that this book is The SetupThe difficulty I think with writing a review for the first part of such a long story is that we re still really getting into the story by the time the book ends I still have WAY uestions than answers and while I m a pretty lax reader when it comes to this kind of thing reviewing such a setup book does pose some challenges Mostly my rating of Pretty Good reflects this because I have to rate how I feel about this novel as a standalone book and that is difficult So while I feel like later installments of this series could really wow me the rating for this first one is probably on the low sideI won t say much beyond the blurb because I liked how little the blurb reveals With the nature of this first book a book that is really about setup of the world the characters and their relationships and beginning the lines of uestions I think it was important for me as a reader to go into this story knowing very little The characters know very little They ve in essence all woken up as some type of vampiric creature and for a couple years been trying to figure out what they are What does it mean that they feel they ve been chosen to be this way and live this existence Their only answers have come from gravitating to each other and forming a familyOf the family there is Kerr who I loving call Jam because of the canning jars D who is the big brother first of the family and all around leader of the group Then there is Charm who like her name is the heart of the family even while driving them all crazy with her prophetic dreams Then there s Doyle who remains a real enigma to the end of the book Is he gay Is he straight All we know is that he seems to have a very secret and important role in the future Lastly we have Christian who in a sense is the strangest of them all He s covered in scars he can t remember getting nor can he remember his previous life at all Sometimes he remembers things and then forgets them again and he often has wild mood swings wise at one moment and downright childish in mind at others as if someone else is controlling him And from the moment he sees Michael our main character dying in the park as the change overcomes him he s in love or obsessed with him He saves Michael s life by feeding him blood and then takes him homeThough these four have been a family for almost two years now Michael really becomes the sun in their solar system once he joins them He s also the catalyst for the changes that start happening in their lives It seems like someone is following them They re all having strange sometimes conflicting prophetic dreams about him and others in the family At the same time while Christian and Michael both say they aren t gay they feel an almost visceral pull towards one another and the sexual nature of their feelings surprise them They both have a bit of angst trying to reconcile their feelings in this book and why they feel them so strongly Lastly there s a side plot Michael misses his real family especially his twin sister Gypsy and wants to try to find a way back to them even though to them he s been missing for over a monthI did had a few problems There s uite a bit of head hopping in the first half of the book and while it doesn t switch sentence by sentence it does often switch every few paragraphs I would have loved a little separation between these POV switches just so they didn t jar me as much while reading I was worried as I got further and further into the story I knew there was a lot coming in future books but I didn t want the story to end without answering enough of my uestions to tempt me into reading the second book I think there s a very subtle and sometimes difficult line to maneuver in this situation between using answers or a cliffhanger to resolve this and I was partly happy with the way it was finished I didn t get as many answers as I wanted and I wasn t asking for a lot there s so much setup for what is coming in the future including names of characters we haven t met or have barely met and whole factions of this story only glimpsed at but there was a cliffhanger as well Perhaps that s unavoidable in a series with so many parallel story lines so I let it slide Plus though there is a cliff the author took the high road I felt There could have been a terrible cliffhanger and we weren t forced to endure that So while the story does end in the middle of much action it isn t at the height of it and I really thank the author for that Still here s hoping that if 12 of 18 books are nearly completed then we won t have to wait long for the second bookI d recommend that readers interested in this stick around for future installments and reviews Unless you re a reader that likes to read as books are released no matter what then go for it But I know many of you would much rather wait until you can get much of the story at onceI m definitely intrigued by this story I can t say I m in love with it because I ll have to wait until there s to read but I liked this one and I m eager to see what happens to the characters in the future I have a feeling they have a shitload of crazy plot twists coming in the future Just a Note This is one of the best covers I ve seen from MLR so kudos It was what drew me to the novel in the first place The Prince of Pleasure (The Wilde Brothers, years been trying to figure out what they are What does it mean that

    I've had this book for a long time and this is my second attempt to finish this book which is a dnf But the convoluted awkward writing confusing plot and unlikable characters have defeated me again Life's too short to get so frustrated with a book in which the author is sparingly giving information I am neither amused or i

    I managed to read about 30% of this book and still didn't know who the MC or MCs were what they were doing or why There was a group of people hiding from something no one knew from what and trying to survive outside society There was no plot to speak of and the story was going nowhere And on top of that the villain was proving to be total cartoon character with long speeches about how HE knew better than his superiors and how he would tot

    This story had great potential but there was uite a lot that I didn't like about it For one it was written in a uite confusing way The pov changes so often and without a clear distinction of another character's narration taking over which made me have to stop every time to figure out who it was The writing style was a bit underdeveloped There was a lot of repetition for example all characters keep wondering why somethin
