Farley is just shy of turned 18 and is in her last year of High School, her best friend Tess is all she has left since her Father died before she was born. While on her way home one day she realizes that she's being followed, in her haste to get away she doesn't realize the vehicle in front of her has stopped and she slams into the back of them. The events that unfold have Farley questioning reality especially a boy trying to save her named Daniel.
Farley finds out the people after her are Reavers, Immortal people who live in tunnels under the city and steal Mortals life forces. I loved how the story developed and the way the plot really thickens with each bit of knowledge Farley collects. Daniel does everything he can to keep Farley safe from the Reavers even going against his heart.
The pull with these two characters is intense and the secondary character's are fantastic as well! Farley tries to deny her attraction while Daniel thinks by pushing her away that she will not give into her feelings. Daniels a bad boy that everyone is going to love. I highly recommend getting a copy of this book, I'm sure my review doesn't do the book justice but I hope it's enough to intrigue your curiosity. Full of action, a love that tries to be denied and the discovery of an underground world that Farley has ties to.
Oh and of course Daniel! Okay, here I go again. I was planning on write this review since the day I finished reading the book, but guess what? Did I say that I loved Daniel? Well, Daniel is that da Okay, here I go again. Well, Daniel is that dark and mysterious guy stalking Farley at the beginning of the book. Yeah, that kind of sarcastic and tormented hot… yep, one of those we love. Frankie Rose introduce us into an amazing and unexpected world. In that case I have to mention Kayden… But who is Kayden? He is a boy with a bittersweet relationship with Daniel, I still know too little about him, but the most important: Now I have to stop talking about hotness, but how can I do that?
And back again to the main topic. Sovereign Hope which title I always write bad! Well-writing, with incredible characters, and a strong voice. The ending was powerful, not a heartbreaking, but a lot of actions scenes one. So, I said YAY!!! After the last page. Is that clear, right?
You must to read it! Jul 02, Andrea rated it it was ok Shelves: This was not what I had expected from the blurb. The whole book was basically Farley moping around in a bland, underground cavern. There was some action at times but it wasn't enough for a good suspenseful read. The writing was poor, in my opinion and sometimes I found it hard to comprehend what she was trying to say. I don't mean to insult the author, but that was just something that bothered me a bit.
I did like Kayden though and would've liked to explore his character Severely disappointed. I did like Kayden though and would've liked to explore his character more, but that didn't happen. I'm guessing he will play a bigger part in Eternal Hope though. Basically, throughout the whole book, I kept wondering when it was going to end. The only thing that kept me going was the fact that it was rated an average of over 4 stars. I really, really hoped I would like it more as I kept reading on, but unfortunately not.
Jun 20, Heather rated it it was amazing. I won't say it reeled me in on the first page, but by the third page, I had a hard time putting this book down. I loved the characters as well especially Farley, Agatha, and Daniel. I felt they were all well developed characters. Yes, there is a bit of a love story going on but it doesn't take over the whole book which is nice. It's more of a backstory. There was also plenty of action.

I had to force myself to stop and write this review before diving right into book 2. Farley was so brave and steady from the very beginning. Most people in her shoes would've fallen apart but she kept her faith and kept pushing forward no matter what. And what can I say about Daniel?
He's an arrogant, rude, too-sexy-for-his-own-good, badass. I fell in love with him immediately. Their chemistry together was And I absolutely can't wait to find out what else is in store for them and their fabulous friends.

The Edge of Hope
But I want to know what is going on. Who is the hot guy with all that chemistry with Farley? My cover-loving heart rejoices! Immediately the action began which had me excited because I like fast paced stories, bu The original review can be found here on The Book Hookup blog. Immediately the action began which had me excited because I like fast paced stories, but I ended up feeling a little lost in all the hustle and bustle.
I had to keep reading, though, because this hero is rather intriguing- mysterious, dark, handsome… oh yes. We only got bits and pieces as we went along. I always enjoy a little mystery. It gets even more interesting when a gorgeous dark haired, muscles rippling green-eyed guy with a serious attitude saves her. Overall this story it is a steady build up with plenty of action. Although I was anxious for answers we only got information in a trickle…well done by the author because I kept turning the pages wanting more tidbits.
In the end I think there were 2 sets of bad guys: Most of the book I was thinking: I love this romance!! The sexual tension is fabulous and the immediate attraction is intense. Daniel is brooding, secretive and cocky. I really like Daniel. It went from serious physical chemistry to professing love. Well, maybe it is for teenagers and maybe because the whole situation was desperate? They went from restraining themselves to letting it all hang out there.
Yes, I love the bad boy. I wanted so much to like these two together, but their relationship felt a little forced and rushed. They were having these huge declarations of love and I felt like they had only just met. However, I was a foolish teenager at one point in my life as well, so I understand how quickly we rush to label emotions. I have a lot of theories there! This is where the story progressed the most for me. I loved the addition of the Whytes, and the lore about how and why they were created.
My heart was pounding in the last few pages, curious to how everything would end and in whose favor. While sometimes the plot was very clear, for example: Maybe it would have been easier if it had been in 1st person and not 3rd. However, I am super biased and just adore 1st person. In some cases, mostly during the action sequences, the story was harder for me to follow who was doing what.
A typical bff that you find in many YA books. I actually quite enjoyed her. I think that was mostly because she reminded me of myself. She has been around for a while and seems loyal and honest. Plus, her mad driving skills sounded like fun. He is dumb and lol. Awww, I liked him, too. Breath of fresh air! I want his ability, though. It be nice to almost literally travel to anywhere your brain can take you. Hmmm… I want to know more! I loved the sort of brotherly relationship he had with Daniel. So many questions with this one. Rose has a great series on her hands and I will definitely be reading book 2.
While the beginning dragged a bit for me, it picked up soon and I really enjoyed the last half of the story. I think the author was definitely able to work through some of the kinks I saw in the first portion of the story. Pulse pounding action, kick ass female lead, breakout originality, smoking hot Daniel, frustrating romance…all equate to an extreme read Within the first 6 pages of this book I was doused with the inability to stop or sleep.
The mixture of the plot and world that Frankie created was such a fresh, strong combination that I was enthralled. From the action contained within those first 6 pages to the sometimes hair-pulling-ly dumb decisions Farley makes, I was bought, packaged, signed and delivered to this read. I was totally expecting my typical YA read and while it does maintain the aspects of YA that I love; action, romance and some complicated paranormal plot. It also embraced writing that was far beyond what I ever get. Part of what lacks in a lot of YA reading to me is vocabulary.
The use of a strong descriptive vocabulary mixed with the action packed adventure she takes you on equaled one heck of a debut novel for this writer. The other main thing that made this go over the top for me was the characters. This is where said main character meets boy, but we never get to KNOW him.
Oh and let me also add of freaking sweet and frustrating the romance is! Frankie also was able to introduce a semi-large group of characters without too many people getting left behind. Between the excellence in writing and the diverse plot and characters, it supersedes what I consider Young-Adult. While it lacks in the more advance romance plots that new-adult fiction contains, you got take some to get some. Review by Sliced Open Reviews Source: From Author in exchange for an honest review Jun 20, Erika rated it really liked it Shelves: Frankie Rose Number of Pages: July 1st, Source: I loved this novel!
I actually was so into it on my iPad on one of the flights home from NYC that the flight attendant had to wave her hand in front of the screen to get my attention! I gave her my: What this book rocks, you should be jealous! Anyways I am freaking hooked. At this point of my review I am starting to see a pattern and I need you to bear with me through my punctuation errors! Farley Hope is now added to one of my favorite characters of all-time list.
I loved how frank she was with everyone, and how her actions are totally rational for someone in her position. I mean I could marry this guy, brooding stare and all! The only thing I did notice, was at times, there were passages that were a bit wordy. The action was rapid and then it would ease up for character development at the perfect places. I now know how to spell Sovereign from this review. Jun 02, Stephanie Tang rated it it was amazing Shelves: First of all, I have to thank author Frankie Rose for giving me the opportunity to read her debut novel a month early.
This was so exciting for me; my first ever review request! On the other hand, I do feel the need to say that the fact that I received a copy of this book for review did not influence my opinion on this book in any way, shape, or form. Therefore all opinions stated in this review are mine and mine alone.
I feel like this story is so complex and has so many unique characters that demand attention, so it makes sense for the story to be told this way because it really allows the reader to get into the heads of the main characters, especially Farley and Daniel.
She really is so strong and was the perfect heroine for this story. He puts on such a hard exterior through most of the book, but there are moments when cracks appear in that exterior and you get to see the vulnerable, caring side of him as well. Most of the supporting cast of characters deserve praise as well; Agatha and Aldan were particularly well-written and endearing, and I wish I had gotten to spend a bit more time with the other underground characters that appear closer to the end of the book, as well as Tess and Oliver.
One of the things I also really appreciated about this book was the pacing. Frankie Rose has such an amazing writing style: While I was reading, I had a lot of questions spinning around in my head. Rose includes a few scenes at the beginning that reveal just a tiny bit of information, setting up the stage for the rest of the story and leaving the reader with much more curiosity.
Sometimes those revelations left me with more questions, but the overarching mystery is just one of the things that makes you want to keep reading. This was such a pleasure to read and once again I have to thank the author for letting me read her book early! Aug 10, Margay rated it it was amazing.
When I first started reading this book, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. For one thing, it just jumps right into the action without any build-up, so I started out just as confused as Farley about what the heck was going on. And you know what? Because I had to figure out what was going on, just like Farley. It wasn't long before I was totally sucked into the story. And what a story it is! I read a lot of books with paranormal elements, adult and young adult alike, and I am constantly When I first started reading this book, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I read a lot of books with paranormal elements, adult and young adult alike, and I am constantly on the lookout for something different - you can only read so many books about vampires and fairies without feeling like it's all been done before.
Well, this book is definitely different in so many ways and that is a very good thing. All I can say is 'Wow! And to the very end, you're kept wondering, 'Is she really going to die? Is there no other way to fulfill the prophesy? Does that mean Farley forfeits her life to save everyone else? Well, you're just going to have to read it for yourself to find out. But don't worry, it's well worth the read! And the whole theme of the prophesy? Unique, edgy, seat-of-your-pants suspenseful. Then there are the characters. I haven't been this wowed by a cast of characters in a single story in a long time.
Usually, there are a few I like, then a bunch I couldn't care less about. I really liked all of the characters - well, except for the villains, but I'm not supposed to like them, right? Farley is a pretty amazing character. She strikes all the right chords here and is a well-balanced character who is dealing with the loss of her mother who simply vanished one day when her life is turned upside-down by strange beings bent on killing her - and the gorgeous stranger who saves her. Everything you could want in a hero, he's handsome, moody, serious - and will lay down his life to save you without hesitation.
His story is pretty amazing as well and just adds so much depth to the overall story and how it affects Farley. They are good foils for each other and you can't help but root for them. You want them to get that happily ever after and you grieve alongside them when it appears that they won't. Then we have Agatha and Aldan, Tess and Oliver, and a cast of others that just add so much to the story.
I absolutely adored Agatha. I thought she was a wonderful secondary character and played well with all the others, whatever the situation called for. I loved how protective she was of Farley, and how nurturing. She supplied the mothering influence that Farley so sorely missed when her own mother went missing. Tess is a wonderful friend for Farley.
Even when she's got a bone to pick with Farley, Tess is still there for her - supportive, loving and comforting. We should all have friends like that. I could probably go on, but I won't - because that will cut into the time that you should be reading this book! I, for one, am looking forward to the next book in this series. First of all, a huge thank you to Frankie Rose who gave me the opportunity to read and review her book, which I am so glad that I did because I really enjoyed it. Sovereign Hope is one of those books that takes you on a journey an when you are done, you really feel like you have been on a crazy ride.
My first impression was ooh, I love this cover and it really drew me in and got me interested in the book. This story was definitely not like most of other YA reads out there I felt that the plot was something new and different, something we haven't seen before which was awesome and I was immediately captivated by the world that Frankie Rose was creating. The story jumps right into action from the very start. We meet our main character Farley Hope.
Farley was just your average seventeen year old girl until her mother mysteriously disappeared one day by walking out of work and never returning, leaving Farley all on her own. I immediately knew that Farley was going to be one tough girl, she was completely on her own and she wasn't just going to let her mother's disappearance fall by the wayside.
She was calling the police as much as possible and asking about her mother's case constantly making sure that anything new they found she would know about. But, Farley's whole entire life changes when she meets Daniel. Sitting in traffic in L. Now, I don't know about you guys but, if I was in this situation I would think this guy was crazy, your mother had already disappeared and some stranger wants you to go with him, I don't think so.
Until she see's that Daniel is right and there are a bunch of men coming after her. The villains of the story are the Reavers, immortal people who have a whole civilization underneath the streets of the city. Reavers, get their powers from taking people's life force or energy, I really enjoyed learning about them and the secrets behind their society and how Farley was involved in the whole story.
Next, onto Daniel, I loved him so much because he was just your typical guy, he loved cars and building engines.
The interactions between him and Farley had me laughing out loud with each of them handing sarcastic quips back and forth to each other, pretending that they both weren't attracted to t the other a total guy thing in my opinion , pretend you don't like a girl by being mean to her. But, as the story progressed you learn more about Daniel and his and Farley's relationship grew and changed with the plot. Overall, this was a great read! I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal stories and someone who hasn't read paranormal, because although the villains were not vampires or werewolves, it still had the same type of feel I get when I read those books.
Definitely check it out! May 19, Barb Lie rated it it was amazing. When I read the description of this story, I figured another one of those teenage girls in distress, since it did not look like the lately normal YA dystopian theme. The action in the book started pretty quickly, and even though at the beginning, you may not understand what is happening.. I was totally surprised, and pleasantly I might add, how Frankie Rose was able to maintain your interest throughout the book. The story is about Farley Hope, and Rose has made her into a wonderful heroine.
Farley is only 18, her world has turned upside down; her mother is missing; no one takes her seriously about her hallucinations, but the worst is yet to come. Farley has such a great sense of humor, her thoughts and comments throughout the book, even in the worst situations, will make you love her all the more. But make no mistake, Farley is a capable and tough heroine. She will face life threatening danger many times, and she will hold firm, and maintain her toughness, despite her wanting to crawl under the covers.
Farley meets Daniel, a surly and distant young man, whom she immediately finds herself attracted too, but his demeanor always finds a way to push her back. Daniel saves her life from strange men trying to hurt her, and Farley can get no answers as to what is going on, other then her weird hallucinations.
She only tells her best friend, Tess about them, but no one really believes her. Her life will never be the same, if she survives it. Farley is taken to an underground compound to keep her safe, and she learns why she is now hunted from Agatha, as Daniel refuses to tell her anything. The Reavers are immortals, who take souls of others. They cannot be killed, and Agatha and Daniel are part of group trying to stop them. Farley discovers she is part of a prophecy that can destroy the Reavers, hence why she is now the hunted. The relationship between Farley and Daniel grows, as he knows about the prophecy and his need to protect her from the dangers, therefore he fights his feelings and is determined to keep his distance from her.
Farley has a hard time understanding why Daniel is so belligerent at times with her. But as each day goes by, they are both feeling the attraction to each other. It is a slow, and at times frustrating romance, because of the dangers involved. But it is their romance, that will help them both survive. This is an intense, action filled, and at times dark story, but Rose does such a wonderful job releasing the tension with so many light and humorous parts.
Rose has done a wonderful job in her debut novel in creating this world, the addicting story, villains, and her characters are excellent. I for one cannot wait for the next book. Well done, Frankie Rose. Barb The Reading Cafe Jul 23, Jo-Anne rated it it was amazing. I need to sit on this one before I write a review. Suffice to say it is fantastic!
You need to grab a copy. I adore this book on so many levels. I have been in a reading funk for a while, I just felt like every book I was reading was the same. I have to say a huge thank you to Frankie for asking me to review her book because I was blown away. I was instantly immersed in the world Frankie I need to sit on this one before I write a review.
I was instantly immersed in the world Frankie has crafted and did not want to stop until I finished it. I seriously considered calling in sick to work just so I could stay up all night to read it! Farley Hope's mother has been missing for six months and the police are still no closer to finding out what happened to her. Farley holds out hope that they will find her when she crashes into Daniel, literally. He saves her life and from then her world is turned upside down. Daniel is part of a secret society that lives beneath our world.
Farley finds out she is part of a prophecy that claims she will destroy the Immortals that rule over them. The Quorum are an impartial entity that is supposed to keep the balance between good and evil. The Immortals have upset this balance and Farley is part of the solution. I found her instantly likeable and was engaged with her character. She handles herself so well through everything; I think she was one of the more mature characters I have read. He's one of those beautifully broken guys that break your heart and make you just want to hug them.
He kind of reminds me of Will from the Infernal Devices, and has an arrogance to match Daemon from Obsidian. If you meshed those two guys together you will have a small idea of who Daniel is. His character is one of the one's that make you fall hard and fast, and I did. He had such a haunting presence to him, it's no wonder Farley felt herself falling for him. The romance plays a big part in the story, but it's only one part of the overall storyline. They have this connection that binds them together, yet Daniel acts as if it's one sided because of his sense of duty and a deal he made with the Quorum.
He's totally swoon worthy, too. The storyline is original, action-packed and compelling. Sovereign Hope is a one-sit read. Once you pick it up you just can't put it down. This is definitely one of my favourite reads of ! Frankie has such an addictive style of writing. Grab a copy of Sovereign Hope to be swept up into an amazing adventure that will have you turning the pages to see how it ends.
