And if you can’t be safe She couldn’t make up her mind to do anything, and she was so passive all the time. Actually, my impatience and frustration was with the others. He doesn’t lie and later we find out why.

She is a graduate of Princeton University, where she spent four years studying English, writing about dragons, and wondering what the conjueed gargoyles would say if they could talk. I must have glossed over the part of the blurb that mentions that Conjured is also an amnesia story. She’s been told that she’s in a witness protection program. I can picture the desperation of the Magician’s victims.
They were all eccentric and wonderfully weird in their own ways. This book makes for an extremely compelling, refreshing and emotionally engaging journey – one that you’ll want to re-take time and time again.
Jul 26, Jen Ryland added it Shelves: All she did all book was kiss fucking Zachary, who was the begh person who’s breath wasn’t gross because Eve WANTED to give him her powers, and he’s the love interest and is “”perfect””, therefore his breath smelled sweet like flowers or something. For the most part, the characters in Conjured didn’t work for me.

However, I liked Eve enough to make the journey with her. He’s not your usual teen love interest, he’s got verbal diarrhea, is an encyclopedia of random trivia, but he’s endearing and somehow I loved him. All in all, I had a lot of fun with this book.
This book reminded me a lot of Another Little Piece in its surrealism and the massive wtf-ery of its plot. The craziest things happen at the library but it was also a place of safety for her when she couldn’t remember anything else: Twisted and tormented by the horrific and strange visions that don’t make any real sense, but it’s the only thing real that she has.
Malcolm is a sweetheart, and I loved his relationship with Eve. The use of the three items which I mentioned were completely arbitrary; besides the inclusion of magic, there was little relevance and mention of the serial killer or portrayal of Witness Protection Program that I had hoped to get.
