The Ylem (The Ylem Trilogy, #1)

The Ylem (The Ylem Trilogy, #1) - Tatiana Vila I have huge issues with this book other than the Twilight-esque plot. You know what I mean...cute guy alternately speaks to and ignores incredibly beautiful newcomer, vampires and werewolves, etc. Kalista was so wishy-washy and annoying. One minute she loves Tristan and the next she doesn't.

Kalista was pissed at Tristan for lying to her, yet she was lying to every one about everything. Where's the difference? And what about her friends? They just disappeared from her life with no questions asked on either side. I also didn't like that Dean was written out of the plot so early. Granted he didn't really have a chance with love-struck Kalista but his exodus seemed like a cop-out.

The sentence structure was abysmal. It was obvious that the author's native language isn't English. I found myself rereading whole paragraphs trying to figure out what was being said or described. It seemed like a thesaurus was used but then the big words weren't incorporated into the sentence properly which gave it a very childish feel.

"The anxiety and fear that swamped my body whenever I was behind the wheel defied the strength of a tsunami" What the heck does that mean?

"Seeming to not want to enter shaky grounds, everybody let it pass."

"He was lying flatly on a grassy area between two bushes."

"They offered me to work for them. I mean how much could've that lasted?"

I feel the book could have used the services of a good proofreader and a better editor.
