    2. Check out more of my reviews on my blog gemmareadstoomuch4.5 StarsDark & Twisted Games is book #1 in the Hearts of Faeylon Series and the first book I have read by this author. I was lucky enough to be gifted an ARC to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.I love fantasy and supernatural books but it’s rare that I find a blurb that tickles my fancy, but this blurb spoke to me (read me, read me lol)I’ve just finished and my initial reaction is…Oh My F’ing God!!!!!!This book grabbed me and pul [...]

    3. Eden just does not belong. She goes through the motions of high school, but she could care less about her grades (which are all almost failing), has one friend, lives with her Schizophrenic aunt who is the town joke, and is nicknamed "Freak". Eden brushes everything off and tries to stay positive while counting down the days until she graduates high school and moves away. But one night while walking through the woods to her friend's house, she is attacked by a stranger with glowing eyes. Nobody [...]

    4. 3.5 out of 5 starsThis book fits the title so perfectly it's kind of scary. I have absolutely no idea how I'm supposed to put my emotions into words after reading this book because I'm literally just in a state of shock. Dark and Twisted Games follows Eden Day who is an outcast at Copake Falls. She spends her days dodging insults and hateful stares and loses herself to the stories she create. Her life gets turned upside down when two brothers move into town with the foster parents. Cardelian is [...]

    5. **You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs: bookbriefs** Dark and Twisted Games is Book One in the Hearts of Faeylon series, a young adult paranormal series. It is a series that has different paranormal creatures and it will appeal to fans of Melissa Marr's Wicked Lovely series. I really enjoyed Dark and Twisted Games. It reminded me how much I love this sub genre of paranormal's. I want to read more! And the cliffhanger at the end is a humdinger! It even said "the end" and I about [...]

    6. FREE copy from author in exchange for HONEST reviewMY REVIEWI'm not going to explain the plot because the synopsis pretty much says it all!Let's talk about Eden first. She has got to be one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE protagonists of all time!! Hve you ever felt that you're exactly like a main character in the book!? Well Eden is exactly like me-not physically but character wise. She has a burning passion for writing and carries a notebook everywhere and instead of solving a math equation she's thin [...]

    7. Note: un-published version 1. I hope this gets revised big time and I can come back to it once it really gets published to review again.I liked the idea of this dark and twisted game between two fae, that kind of thing is always a good idea, and I think Heidi Acosta could reach the right level of madness and cruelty, the dreams and Cardelain hinted at it. I also liked what I got to see of Faeylon so far, and the lore and abilities.However, the way this is now, I can’t give it a good rating. Th [...]

    8. Hmmm, we should call this one a ya paranormal mystery because most of the book is spent trying to find out what the Foster brothers are. The other part is trying to figure out which brother Eden will chose. Lol it's a fun young adult book with a great mystery plot but I wished for a little more Surprise. I know, it's just for once I want something nice to happen lol but the dark aspects are what make the book so awesome. It definitely kept my attention. I really like Eden. I also really liked he [...]

    9. Read for review for Kylie's Fiction Addiction.I have to say I was intrigued by the synopsis and jumped at the chance to read this book. Heidi Acosta has an incredible imagination and I'm so glad that she shared it with us.Eden Day is a socially awkward 16 year old who lives with her aunt. While preparing for the next alien invasion, helping her bestie get ready for homecoming and avoiding Buck the school bully, she's also dealing with the new Foster's. Jaxson is your typical dark and moody hotty [...]

    10. Man, not sure what to say about this one. Once in while I like to explore some fantasy romances. But this one was how shall I say, WEIRD AS HELL!!!I mean, all through the story you just want to know what this guy Jaxson is. He emits cold and has glowing eyes *smirk! But when the reveal comes, it's just so damn far fetched that I had to choke back laughter. It was just too too out there. Plus the ending was not what I call a cliffhanger. The ending was full of s***!!! I really pissed me off that [...]

    11. I have mixed emotions about this book. I loved the story. The characters were well developed and the pacing to the book was just right. The last third was quite a surprise and very unpredictable, and I love not knowing what's going to happen. My only complaint is the editing. Maybe I have an early version of the book and a new one is out now, but the book I have contains multiple errors that a good round of editing could fix. However, I know how hard it is to write and publish. You never know wh [...]

    12. Growing up life for Eden has been difficult as living in a small town, she has been called a freak due to her aunt's condition and the fact her parents are dead and then even her Grandmother has shunned her. The only person she can really count on and who makes her life bearable for the fact that she hangs around with Eden is Liv who is the complete opposite of her - Miss Popular, Cheerleader and Beautiful. Compared to Liv, Eden is your plain jane type of girl. That is until she catches the inte [...]

    13. Thank you YA Bound Book Tours and Heidi Acosta for giving me a chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review.*Note to Book Tour: I am aware that I am a bit late and I apologize for that.*This book to me a while to get through. It started off really slow and cliche. It was a very typical girl goes to high school, not popular, and swoons over every good looking guy that walks by kinda story. At least in the beginning but I'll get to that in a bit. Also, the book was written in present [...]

    14. Dark & Twisted Games is the first book in the Hearts of Faeylon Series and pretty much the first book I have read by Heidi. I love fantasy, so when reviewers were requested, I volunteered though I had plenty on my plate already. I will be honest, I was not sure what to make of the blurb at first and could not quickly decide what my feelings toward the book were going to be. I will also say, that I really liked the cover quite a bit.Dark&Twisted Games ebook coverThere are quite a few ster [...]

    15. Eden is sixteen, a social outcast, and spends her time writing or caring for her aunt - who the citizens of Copake Falls have labelled as "schizophrenic" because she insists she was abducted by aliens. Eden is naive and on paper I have little in common with her, but Heidi Acosta creates Eden with an emotional vulnerability which means that we want to embrace her and her story.Heidi Acosta has clearly thought carefully about her plot and how she wants her reader to react. We initially start Dark [...]

    16. I've been contemplating on whether I liked this read or not. I did enjoy it, but I'm aware that it lacked something. Depth? Character depth? I can't put my finger on it. The characters didn't do much for me. They were the normal cast we're used to in books. Eden the outcast, Liv her popular best friend, Cardelain the good guy, Jackson the bad boy, and there's a mean girl and a bully etc You get the point. I didn't connect well with either character because they are hard to relate to. I will say, [...]

    17. Absolute Waste Of TimeThere were no redeemable qualities to this book. I couldn't even make myself finish reading it. It sucked! The girl was a complete idiot. She constantly made a fool of herself. Every time she got around the guy she liked she did something stupid and embarrassing. That's only cute for a couple of times, after that it's just humiliation. Not to mention she was a stalker. She had no pride when she would go chasing after this guy. No wonder he treated her like crap thru the who [...]

    18. **I received a copy from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.**Dark and Twisted (Hearts of Faeylon Book 1) by Heidi Acosta was a surprise. Full of twists and turns, I had no idea where is was going, and I couldn't stop reading it so I could find out!!!A definite must-read, and I cannot wait for further stories in the series!

    19. I saw potential in the plot premise and Acosta's skilled descriptive writing, but this novel needs some revising to flow better. Full review here at SeeKikiRead.

    20. Jaxson!!!!!!!! This was an original concept with lots of layers and intrigue. And as I said before, it also has Jaxson. Can't wait for the second one to come out!

    21. Definitely worth the read for those that enjoy a a fun paranormal story with, a twist. I look forward to the second book.

    22. Twilight meets Raven Boys meets Fae Courts. Could have been better. There were typos and spelling errors. Also, what's up with damn book I read ending in a cliffhanger!
