Review: The Pace (Pace 1) by Shelena Shorts


where I got my copy: Shelena  Shorts

Weston Wilson is not immortal and he is of this world. But, aging is not part of his existence, and eighteen-year-old Sophie Slone is determined to find out why. In doing so, she could also uncover something about her own life expectancy that she may not want to know. Suddenly, immortality will mean everything and nothing all at the same time.

Intensely fascinating and rich with determination, The Pace brings together romance, mystery, and suspense in a compelling bond that is sure to have readers asking for more.

The Pace is book 1 of its series. It tells the story of a young boy born January 12, 1900 in London and now currently living in California, attending Berkeley at 19. How? well as you've read above the certain boy named Weston III is an Immortal, that's right people he is Immortal, not in a paranormal way, so you guys can cross out Vampire, Werewolf, Shifter and even Demon. He is made by science. He was a homophiliac until Dr. Oliver Thomas transfused him with cold-serum in the year 1916. I would love to tell you how this works but then where's the fun in that :)

Weston's history was fascinating and lonely at the same time. He is also completely dreamy that includes his looks and how smart, and sweet and caring he is, his wealth and his awesome collection of cars and his million dollar home, even his complex nature is appealling. Definitely fictional boyfriend material. (lol) But his heart only belongs to one person and one person only, her name is Sophie, one could say that she is a bore, as she evades socializing and a true loner. But I love her content nature and her heart. As you progress reading about her and Weston's story you'll actually see how intirguing her whole life is. I had an overwelming sense of de javu, I've read something like this before and I might as well say it. The story has a striking resemblance to another series, if you read that you'll know what I'm talking about. But that's about the only comparison. It was written beautifully and truly has a world of its own, trust me it took me there, it kept me glued on its pages until I finish the book.

You'll read the signs of true love, how their relationship blossomed in front of your eyes.
Shorts described his past and his present in clear detail it felt like I was watching the scenes unfold in front of me instead of imagining it, the breath taking view of the over look and his house, the campus, even the Mr. healy's book store. In short I got too much into it. It was truly a beautiful love story the one that never ends. But like all love story their relationship was tried many times, will both of them live to survive this time?

A highly recommended feel good book with no cheesy context or pretentious hidden mystery. A solid freshman start for a new book. I was really impressed. Congratulation Miss Shorts, I'll eagerly wait for The Broken Lake (Book 2) to be released August 19, 2010
