AOF: 2016 Inkitt Reviews

Now that The Art of Falling has been picked up, it’s no longer available to read for free on Inkitt. So, here is a collection of reviews from Inkitt for The Art of Falling from 2016.

An Amazing Read ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“This was the first story I read on inkitt and I have to say this has put my expectations very high! I loved this story and I was very sad to finish reading it but it has been a great journey. The characters were put together very well and I kept sympathising with both the main leads Keir and Regal. I love these kind of stories with the fantasy element and about angels and demons so this was a perfect read. 🙂 I can’t wait for the sequel!” – Hamzter678 (Jan 29, 2016)

I’ve Been Sitting Here for 4 Hours  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“Okay so I just read the whole thing in one sitting. I’m also crying. Reading this story was honestly a life-changing experience for me. It was beautiful, the character’s were amazing, the writing was fantastic– oh man, I’ve never wanted to applaud a story so much! The only flaw I could really find was the occasional spelling mistake, but even then those were easily overlooked. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m gonna go read the whole thing again.” – Elf_Lord_Elphias (Feb 21, 2016)

An Incredible Read!  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“I have really enjoyed your story, it drew me in and kept me wanting more! The characters are really well made and you can sympathize with both the protagonists! I have always enjoyed the fantasy genre, so I am glad I have found another great read I can go back to. This was really emotional and even made me cry at points! Thank you for creating this epic work and I hope that you continue making more fab stories!” – Hershey49 (Apr 17, 2016)

Well Worth It!  ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“I love angel/demon stories and read them every chance I get. This one was different and well worth the time to read. I am looking forward to the chapters to come.” – J0ra (Jul 29, 2016)

The Art of Falling ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“I’m not very far into it but very interesting read. Cant wait to read more but its hard to read from desk top computer.” – Linda Boman (Aug 3, 2016)

Supposed to Be Sleeping ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“But how could I? I couldn’t put this down. The strength of plot and characters are what I want to see the most in a story and this delivered. The concept is interesting, The pacing is well-done and it’s written in a way that makes it so easy to continue on. I want to be more detailed on what I liked about this– the biggest thing is probably the characters and their development- well-paced, believable, and fascinating. Supporting characters fulfilled their roles well while not being over-done. I loved how easily I could paint a picture of the settings and characters too. Also, shout out to Michigan (Detroiter here)! I’ve been to the Tahquamenon Falls myself, it’s wonderful. Now I can’t stay awake any longer, but I hope there’s a continuation for the story so much- I was actually caught off guard that it had ended. I eagerly await this novel’s publishing as I have no doubt it will be.” – RinYuu (Aug 7, 2016)

Demonic Art and Angelic Politics ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

“This is an entire world, set up with species-specific traits, a history that is revealed in reasonable, digestible portions, and political maneuverings that leave me with questions. The back story that was revealed in tantalizing tidbits makes me want to read what comes next at least as much as the romance that is the primary advertised plot line. The story made me care about the characters and their worlds, and mixed movement and action with exposition very smoothly. High marks for the art of writing! I give average marks for the technical aspect because the seasonal setting got confused a bit, there were some jumbled sentences that forced me out of the fantasy to parse their intent, and the lunar cycle that was so key to the timeline was mishandled. Starting with an Earthly month’s deadline at the dark moon puts a full moon in the middle of the timeline and necessitates a waning moon as the deadline approaches. I really liked the idea of the demon taking power from darkness such that the full moon’s light weakened him, so it was jarring when a stray reference to a return of the full moon was made only four days after it had already happened. Thank you for the image of an angel shielding a demon from sunlight by shadowing him with his wings. That will stick with me for a while. Well done!” – ElleStarrunner (Aug 21, 2016)
