Virtue

Virtue - Amanda Hocking Fun, fast read about a girl with a destiny, a boy with a secret and a world whose fate hangs in the balance as the eternal battle between good and evil rages on. "Virtue" seems to be written for a slightly younger audience than any of Hocking's previous books and departs somewhat from her contemporary paranormal usual as this is a more of a fairytale fantasy. In it she has crafted an interesting mythology regarding the balance of good and evil.There was definitely some insta-romance going on in this book, but I guess this is somewhat on par with most fairytales. Also, I wish that parts of the story didn't seem so rushed and that there had been a bit more character development. That being said, I did like Lily, the main character; she was sweet, a bit reserved and a little naive but when the situation required it she was strong and fought for those she loved.Overall, an entertaining read. 3.5/5 stars (rounded up for the star rating)
