The Gift by A.F. Henley 1

 Doren was born with a powerful gift—a gift he’s managed to use to put him well on his way to becoming a star. But there is more to that gift than just musical talent, and as careful as Doren is to hide that fact, there are some who know of the power behind the sound, and all the ways they could abuse it.August’s goal in life is simple: make an impact in the music industry. An opportunity to work as the personal assistant to Doren seems to be exactly the kind of break he needs to accomplish that goal.

But all too often in life, simple becomes just another complication, especially when there are people whose goal is even simpler: destroy and dominate.


This is going to be one of those confusing reviews.  You know the one’s I’m talking about, where you loved the book and hated it at the same time?  So get ready to sit back cause here’s the fun part:
I FREAKING LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Oh my gosh, I loved how completely different it was.  The battle between good and evil was just amazing!  I really want to meet this author just from reading this book because it was that great.  I completely LOVED the characters, all of them because they were just incredibly well written and I couldn’t get enough of them.  I think that I developed a bit of a crush on August, but that is perfectly fine with me!  I really want to know if the author is going to turn this into a series because if they are, I want first dibs on the next book.
Now the next part:
I didn’t like this book.
I really didn’t like the switching between all the POVS.  When you read the book, you will understand what I mean.  I had a really hard time following along with the story at certain times, and would end up flipping back a few pages to see who was talking now.  While I do understand the reasons why the author did it, I also was left extremely confused.
Overall though, this book is a complete must read from me!
