Kuban Other alleged evidence for modern pterosaurs includes artifacts and rock etchings of questionable origin or very subjective interpretation. What is sorely lacking, besides convincing photos of extant pterosaurs, is any reliably documented forensic or physical remains such as carcasses, bones, eggs, nests, or tracks. Indeed, the totality of evidence for LPs seems even less abundant and more equivocal than for other unconfirmed creatures or "cryptids," such as "Bigfoot" or the "Loch Ness Monster," which is probably why even among young earth creationists YECs and cryptozoologists, relatively few advocate the idea of living pterosaurs.

Doesn't that sound awesome? Well, you know that age old rule, "Don't judge a book by its cover? Everyone always comes back, except on one night when the Temple flashes black I am extremely disappointed with this book.
Everyone always comes back, except on one night when the Temple flashes black and the soul, Ciana, dies. Five years later a baby girl is born and everyone is expecting it to be Ciana.
Instead, Ana is born and is the first Newsoul. Ana's father seemingly abandons his family, while her mother leaves the city, Heart, out of embarrassment. Ana is kept away for eighteen years and mentally and physically abused by her mother, Li.
Li blames Ana for replacing Ciana and she along with others call her the Nosoul. So, on Ana's eighteenth birthday she sets out to the city of Heart to find out why she was born.
That all sounds really interesting, right? So, imagine my surprise when the majority of the book Ana isn't researching her past or digging into mysteries of the Temple, but instead playing the piano with the love interest, Sam. Most of the book revolves around their relationship.
And while I really liked how it was not an insta-love situation, it completely distracted the book from the actual plot. In fact, you barely even know more about any other characters besides Sam and Ana. Let me break this down for you: The entire book is the romance.
Do not let the blurb fool you. Ana is rarely doing anything to find out more about her past. When she first leaves her mother's cottage she gets attacked by a Sylph and nearly drowns. However, Sam, a thousand-year-old soul, just happens to be camping nearby and saves her.
From then on out their relationship consist of music lessons, almost kisses, and awkwardness. It was clear that they did like each other, but it is not clear what the romantic conflict was.
Was it their age difference? What the people of Heart might think about them? It almost seems as if Meadows purposefully kept them apart just to add romantic tension because most of the time nothing is happening. What really irked me was the choppy dialog between Sam and Ana.
Ana is always "almost" catching Sam's facial expression or "too slow" to see his true emotions: Something flashed in his eyes, but I was too slow to fully see it. His gaze stayed on mine, like there was something I was supposed to read in his expression He caressed the keys again, some strange expression crossing his face.
Or— It was hard to tell.

His expression was impossible to read in the dark. He faced me again, but it was too dark to see the subtleties of his expression. And on and on it went.
Ana didn't know what was going on and neither did I. For most of the book I remained in the dark about why Sam even liked Ana. You like each other, I'm not sure why, but I get it already!
They became so annoying that I just wanted to grab their little heads like so, and make them get it over with already.Breitbart TV is the home of the hottest video on politics, world events, culture, and media.
