Another book inescapably resembling twilight

Inescapable by Amy Bartol

Knock, knock!
Who is it?
Twilight!
Twilight who?
Twilight. The book with vampires and werewolves.
Twilight is it you?
Yes, it is me!



Cause ‘Inescapable’, you are inescapably familiar to Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. 

Don’t get me wrong, I loved the Twilight series. But reading too much of the same thing gets old eventually.

So what do we have here? 

Damsel who seems to be a magnet for danger. CHECK!
Snobbish hunk who hates heroine at first bat. CHECK!
Of course, the love triangle. CHECK!
“I’m too dangerous for you, we can’t be together”. CHECK!
Stalking windows. CHECK!
Villains who want a piece of our heroine. CHECK!
Hero who never gets old and filthy rich and driving jaw dropping cars but goes to school. CHECK!

I’m not bashing the book, I’m just trying to make a point. The book was enjoyable in some parts, but eye-rolling most parts.

So instead of vampires we get angels instead. And these angels’ forms are stuck in, guess what age? In their late teens. And what do they do? Go to school. And take note these angels are a thousand years old. They should teach their teacher. Not the other way around. Deliver that history right!

Story revolves around Evie Claremont who goes to Claremont college on a scholarship. She meets a hot snob, Reed Wellington, who dislikes her instantly. We have the other love interest, Russell, who protects her from everything, even beings who can throw cars despite him knowing that he doesn’t have a chance.

I was initially opting for two stars, but author did catch me off guard with the ending, so I give another star. The writing is actually good, but as I said, too much of the same thing gets old. Probably if it wasn’t too Twilight-y, then this book probably had a chance.

So, I highly recommend this book to Twilight fans who don’t mind reliving it another time.
