    One dare gone too far...Two teenagers bound by death...A bond worth fighting for...This book was simply amazing!!I won't give too much away: firstly, because this was a beta read and there may be changes in the final copy, and secondly because I want you all to experience it for yourselves. But can I just say...it blew me away.Love mythology?You'll love this book. Keep a look out for Hermes (who is literally the guy of your dreams...and possibly nightmares)!!Love mystery?Then get your Nancy Drew on! Unsolved mysteries and secrets are a hazard of this tale. Love romance?Then you'll love Sophie's latest couple - Kannon and Endora (a.k.a Eel). This book is sure to be a hit with fans of YA fiction with a bit of a mythological twist. :)

    Endora Lee Andrews is popular, has great friends and is celebrating her 18th birthday. All her life she’s had a special quirk…she has an odd electrical charge that shorts out batteries, watches and cell phones. Her friends call her Eel, for electric eel but she never really minds since she’s been this way all her life.Hanging with friends, a call from her father, and a fun night was what Endora Lee Andrews expected for her 18th birthday. Instead she meets the mysterious Kannon, who pulls her in like a magnet and yet his presences alarms her. The call does come through from her father and they even set up a meeting, but strangely he’s a no show and disappears without a trace. But Endora’s most disturbing birthday surprise is the premonitions and nightmares she starts experiencing, giving her glimpses into future…Uncertain and haunted by her nightmares, Endora must discover the secrets behind her new abilities. She must solve the mystery of her father’s disappearance and why she has this unnatural draw towards Kannon. Gods know, Endora’s life and afterlife might just depend on it. I loved this book. Although Eel is faced with abnormal situations she rallies and faces it head on. A strong heroine, a hot mysterious stranger, great friendships and a completely original and engaging plot, Sophie Davis writes a BRILLIANT new young adult series!

    "Pawn" by Sophie Davis is the first in a new series and having read and liked her amazing Talented Series I downloaded this book on the day of its release, eager to see what idea she had come up this time.In "Pawn" the protagonist Endora, or "Eel" turns 18 and at her surprise party (nearly?) drowns and gets rescued by the mysterious Kannon. Her feelings towards her attractive saviour however turn ambiguous when he seems to know things about her she has not told him herself. Unsure whether she can trust him she ceases contact with him.In the meantime however she sees or 'meets' him in dreams, all of which seem to have special meaning or a clairvoyant or omniscient character. She finally meets with him and finds out that Kannon and her are not so different and share the same gift or powers.Her exchange with Kannon is romantically charged but also leads her to the investigation of some myths, the nature of which I do not want to reveal here so you can find out yourself without a spoiler.I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is written in parts for young adults and briefly crosses over into chick lit territory with scenes between Endora's circle of girlfriends but not in a way that would limit Davis' story or audience to that market. The central idea behind the story and probably the rest of series to follow very clever, well thought through and engaging and I found myself drawn into the journey of discovery that Endora and Kannon embark upon more than I would have thought. There are additional interests woven into the plot, like some mystery regarding Endora's father, making this a more dimensional and enjoyable.The writing is tight and smooth and the plot moves along perfectly, never letting me out of its grip. Davis is a talented writer, story teller and entertainer and leaves us with a great set up for the next instalment of this series. Highly recommended.

    I received a copy from the author for an honest review. What if everything you believed in life about yourself turned out to be a lie? Had déjà vu moments that really were going play out in the future as if you had already experienced them? Endora or Eel as her friends call her has those experiences. She also seems to cause electronics to stop working. But on her 18th birthday, things start to happen and change around her. Her best friend Devon is about the only person she can trust. She misses her dad but when he doesn’t meet her for the appointment they have planned together, Eel gets an odd call that changes things. Once Kannon saves her from a near death experience, the connection is strong between them and undeniable. But is he safe to be around and is he someone she can trust? What secrets will Eel learn about who she really is? This is the beginning of another pull you in story from Ms. Davis you will want to pick up and read.

    Endora finds out shortly after her 18th birthday that her dreams actually forsee the future. All because she died briefly at birth and was revived. That's not all though. She comes to find out that there are others out there who have died and come back but their experience involved being brought before three creatures in the underworld who judge your life and decide if you get a second chance at life or not. This forces Endora to delve a little deeper into what really happened to her when she was born. There is a bit of Greek Mythology, mixed in with the budding romance between Endora and Kannon.Clean with some PG kissing scenes but filled with action and plenty of girl drama and action. I wasn't impressed with the nonchalant way they portrayed underage drinking, partying and for the other characters, sex though it was only inferred. The teens in this YA story were a little immature in my opinion.Overall a nice story that wasn't terribly predictable. Ending leads us to the next book in a bit of a cliffhanger way for those of you that HATE that, this may not be for you.

    PAWN*This review may contain Spoilers*Where the chess game is Life. The players are ancient mythological gods. And humans and Egrgoroi(people who died and are brought back for a second chance at life in exchange for their help in making sure their designs are followed through) alike are pawns in their game of Tartarus versus the Elysian Fields (evil versus good) and keeping the scales from tipping.This is such an interesting story. I'm always taken with mythologies and the various takes on legends, and as usual, Sophie Davis doesn't disappoint in her unique perspective on this particular thread. Her whole life Endora Lee (Eel) Andrews has been a pawn to those around her. Her birth mother. Her friends in pursuit for popularity. Her lacrosse coach for wins. The Panel of Three once she turned eighteen. But she's also an expendable, and her time may be up as she continually brushes with death...and Kannon Stevens--another watcher. He saved her life, but is there more to the beautiful, electric boy than meets the eye?Honestly, I love this story. the underlying story and characters are great. It was the basic plot and actions of the characters that bugged me. The way that high school, teenagers, and social life is portrayed seems way too far fetched. I know there are some areas, and some mediums of teens that may act that way, but these kids...ALL of them acted as if it was normal to party nearly every night and drink yourself dumb. To sleep around and fool with boy girl after another. To drive out to secluded areas for random parties. Even the celebration after the lacrosse game was over exaggerated in my estimation. While parties may be thrown, the level to which this was was far beyond anything I've heard of. These kids are privileged, I get that. But they are still kids and I would think that their parents would still be vigilant of their whereabouts and going ons...Despite that, the characters and overall plot shined through. Endora Lee, who was nicknamed as a babe Eel because of her influence over electronics--shocking!--died the day she was born. She was dead for minutes before revived. It was in those minutes that her life and afterlife were bargained for a second chance, and her help in keeping the future on track. Because of that day, on her eighteenth birthday she started dreaming of the future. No literally, she had premonitions; visions from the god, Hermes. And somehow in all of this she and Kannon get mixed up together, when on her eighteenth birthday Kannon saves her life (from being drowned by a lake creature..mermaid) and he already knows her name. As her dreams start that night, the first is about Kannon. A game of mystery, cat and mouse, love and lies. This is a thrilling first novel that has me begging for more. What will Davis' next move be?

    I have previously read, and reviewed, the Talented series by this author. I wasn't sure what to expect from this book when I stared it as it was so different to the Talented books. Even after a few chapters I still wasn't sure about it. To say I'm glad I stuck with it is an understatement. This book is the start of a trilogy which is shaping up to be one I will definitely be recommending.Endora Lee has just turned 18. She is having a surprise get together with her friends when something happens, and she sees things she can't explain. She also meets Kannon, who appears as if from thin air. Kannon seems to know things about her, and he begins to appear to Endora in her dreams.Endora starts to have visions, some of which come true. She also has dreams, which become nightmares, and has a sense that something is going to happen, something bad. Endora's dad has been away from the family for years, but always calls on her birthday. This year is different though, and in trying to find out what has happened to her father she meets the owner of a local eaterie, Henry Haverty, who knows him. Through this chance encounter Endora eventually finds out a lot more about her father, herself, and what it was that made him leave. She delves deeper into her background, and her father's life as well, and discovers a lot more than she dreamed of. What she finds out about herself shocks her, but she tries to accept it and find out more. She has help, along the way, from her best friend Devon and Kannon, who she becomes much closer to.I liked that this story was different to others of the same genre I have read. The mythology behind the story is good and drew me in. The writing is good, as I have come to expect from this author. It is also totally different to the authors other series. This is a story about destiny, and in particular the ability to change a predetermined destiny.Endora and Kannon have quite a journey ahead of them, and I cannot wait to see what happens to them. I was already a fan of Sophie Davis and this series looks set to strengthen my love of her stories.

    God, this sounded so intriguing when I read the synopsis, because who doesn't love a nice dose of Greek mythology? Unfortunately, Pawn didn't live up to my expectations and was about as exciting as watching paint dry. Excuse the cliche.The very beginning, and by that I really only mean the first chapter or so, was promising with a strong start to the book that ended up being the most compelling part of the whole story. After that, the story completely flatlined-- no action, no cataclysmic moments, just a poorly executed mystery in which the suspense is occupied by a sickly saccharine romance. Mysteries are meant to slowly unravel, whereas Pawn lags with nothingness between the point where the unsolved puzzle is introduced and suddenly solved at the very end.The romance was the strongest aspect of the book, but I didn't like that either. Endora initially labels him as a creep then does a complete 180 and becomes instantaneously attracted to him. Likewise, Kannon's random confession only days after making her acquaintance had me gagging. Instalove = no chemistry = no ship = disappointing.At times the dialogue was also strangely awkward because of the absence of contractions. I'm not sure if this is something everyone has a problem with but it's definitely a pet peeve of mine that I can't help but always notice.In summary, this book led to nowhere. A lot of potential for one extraordinary story wasn't used, mostly wasted on a 'romance' that overshadowed the entire book. You really don't always get what you want in life, and Pawn reiterated that.

    http://fallenoverbookreviews.blogspot...I received this book to give an honest review.I have to say I really enjoyed this book. I am not sure where they got the idea for it but to me it was pretty darn awesome.We are introduced to Endora, just by the name you know it is going to be some kind of fantasy. Endora is just a normal girl minus dying when she was super young and having this thing where she just drains batteries. Though she never thought neither one of them were related and she sure didn't know that she was given a second chance at life because of the three judges. When she meets Kannon she isn't sure of him at first especially when they touch each other and they both get shocked. Though she knows that she is starting to like him but he is such a mystery. So many questions she has for Kannon because he knows more about her than she knows about herself. As things go on such as school and parties Endora starts getting visions and dreams when they start becoming real Endora starts wanting answers to what is happening to her. It seems that her father might have been on a mission that involves Endora's life but what does Kannon have to do with it all? It seems that he has a mission himself as he is just like Endora but will he do what is asked or will he back out of his contract? You know I was kind of worried about Endora's mother as she seemed to be way to overprotected, but as we got closer to the end it all became clear on why she was the way she was. Mystery and mythology coming together makes for a darn good story line. Where this book left off makes me want to read book two asap. I want to know will Endora find what her father was looking for? Will those that are like Endora and Kannon finally find them? Will Endora's soul be bound for the unthinkable or will she get a chance to prove how good she is? There is just much I want to know. This is another great trilogy by these co-authors that will leave you wanting more, it is a great read for teens and young adults.

    I love books about mythology and this was definitely a different take from any I have read before. Unlike others I have read, I actually liked most of the characters as well. Almost from the beginning, I was intrigued and as the story progressed, the surprises just kept coming. It starts with Eel almost drowning on her 18th birthday, and meeting Kannon. Of course, nothing about that event was as simple as that. From there, Eel will learn she is not only different, she isn't the only one and there is more to it than her "quirk" of shorting out electronics over time.Kannon is the first person like her that she meets. He not only saves her life, but is the first one to explain to her what she is and the fact that there are others. However, unlike Kannon, she is still different. With the help of Devon, her best friend and the only friend who knows everything and is willing to help, and her father's friend, Mr. Wentworth, she begins to unravel the confusion that surrounds her, including her missing father, how she became an watcher (not going to try to spell it!), and the truth about why Kannon scares her at times. I really liked Devon and Eel. There interactions and how they looked out for each other. They had each others back, and would do anything for the other. The one thing I did find odd is how easy and often they spent the night at each others houses. My parents were never that free with my siblings and I, but that is not to say that other parents are not. Book 2 is definitely on my list to read.

    This book!! O.M.G this book!! I am so glad that I finally got a chance to read this, but at the same time I'm upset because I have to wait until next year for the next one. I am not going into a whole lot of detail because the less you know about this book I think the better it will be for you. This book was so creepy, but amazing at the same time. I couldn't stop reading it. I didn't want it to end and I am still in a book funk over it because I can't stop thinking about Endora and Kannon. You know that when reading this book that there is more to Kannon than he is letting Endora know, but you don't know if it's good or bad. You also get frustrated because Endora will have a dream (or nightmare) and you know what is going to happen, but she doesn't seem to. So, you are reading intently and practically screaming at her the entire time, like when you are watching a horror movie and you know the killer is in the next room. It's great!! I am hoping and wishing that I get a chance to beta read the next one or get an ARC or something. I don't know if I can wait until it's released!! This book of course gets 5 books!! I would give it more if I could.

    It's tough to be graduating high school. To be crossing over that threshold from teenager to adult, from High School to college and/or the work force, to … to be haunted by dreams, to have some sort of electrical discharge that can short circuit small appliances and devices, to believe a mermaid-like creature has tried to drown you … OK, so Endora Lee Andrews, also known as “Eel” as both a play on her name AND for her electrical oddity, may be facing more issues than your typical graduating teenager.Pawn is the second of Sophie Davis' books that I've read this year. I liked our protagonist, Endora, but I was suspicious of all of her friends and of the adults in this book. SOMETHING felt wrong … if this was the sensation that Ms. Davis was aiming for, it worked. However, I never shook the sense of paranoia that anyone, any time, could turn out to not be what they seemed. It's tougher to enjoy a book when you're constantly looking over your shoulder and that of the heroine.RATING: 4 stars.DISCLOSURE: To be honest, I don't recall if I got this for free or if I paid a nominal fee for it. Either way, I DID promise the author I would give it an honest review upon completion.

    Pawn was this weeks book to read I the Sweet 16 Summer Splash challenge and I loved it. This books cover is very eye catching and next to dystopian, mythology is my favourite genre. Sophie Davis covered both parts in mythology that I had known about and parts that I wasn't aware of. I found the book to be filled with action which made Oawn a quick and exciting read. I really enjoyed reading about all of the characters. I liked seeing the attraction between Endora and Kannon. I liked following them as they tried to unravel the mystery surrounding Eel's dad. I also found the new business partner of Endora's very unlikely and Intruiguing. I can't wait to learn more about all of the above lol. This was a full length novel but it read so quick that it felt like a short story.it held my attention throughout the book and I can't wait to read the next book in the series to find out what Soohie Davis has in store for us. I would recommend this novel to mythology lovers and just someone looking for something good to read.

    This book was freaking AMAZING!! I have no idea why I haven't left a review for this book (I read it the day it was released - and I would have sworn I left one before, so maybe Amazon deleted it?) When I first read this book, it immediately became one of my favorites! I LOOOOOOOOVE the cover... I'm not sure why exactly, but I do. As for the story itself? So good! Loosely based Greek mythology, danger, romance, psychic powers, and a huge mystery! My kind of book! I suggest you read it because it's awesome and because it's got an open ending that leaves you waiting rather impatiently for Book 2, Sacrifice (which, unfortunately, has not been released yet... but it's coming!)

    First of all, thank you Sophie, for letting me read your book.I LOVED IT!!!!!!I was not able to put down my Kindle, well, unless I really had to.Being a huge fan of this amazing writer, I was not disappointed, which made me very happy.It had everything I liked in a book, the drama, the romance, the friendship, the mystery and of course, being a huge fan of the Greek mythology, made it just awesome.I was upset when I read the last line and my Kindle still showed 10 minutes, I was like "What, NO!!!"Needless to say, I can't wait for the second book.I can only recommend this book to anyone!!!! Seriously.

    Pawn is a story that stays with you for a while. If I could ask the author 1 question, it would be, "When is the next installment coming out?!?!?" I enjoy the paranormal genre and I have been known to read some that involved teenagers, but this book exceeded my expectations. The fact that there were twists to the story up until the end is amazing. Just when I thought I had it figured out, things changed. Endora is a likable character and you feel like you are right there with her, figuring it out at her speed. There is NO SEX in this book, which many will appreciate. I hope that the rest of the trilogy continues along the same lines as this book! {babusbookshelf.blogspot.com}

    I really enjoyed this book. It is a little out of the genre I usually read. A friend suggested I read it. It intrigued me. I loved the female Endora. She is a strong yet vulnerable young woman. Are bad dreams and nightmares events to come or events that have passed? It has a lot of mythology involved and being a fan of mythology I liked the reference to the myths and I really like the young man Kannon. He appears to be wonderful but I wonder about his true motives and things that were revealed in this first book have left me thirsty for the next. I liked the characters and the story line is quite interesting and exciting.

    Pawn is a story that makes you sit and wonder why. There were twists to the story right up to the end - it is truly amazing. I thought that I had it figured out, but no was I wrong. Endora or Eel as her friends call her is a likable person and the way the author writes the story you feel like you are right there with her, figuring it out at her speed. I hope that the rest of the trilogy continues along the same lines as this book and that they are released soon! Would I recommend this book to others - yes I would definitely

    Endora Lee, nicknamed Eel has had the ability to make electronics stop working since she was a baby, right after she died and came back. On her eighteenth birthday she meets a mysterious boy named Kannon and she starts having prophetic dreams. I was liking this book better than the last book I read by Sophie Davis. I liked the characters better in this one. The writing and pacing are good. The story is interesting. 4 stars.

    What a fast read. The book was totally not what I expected. I really enjoyed how the story went. The revealing of information didn't seem thrown in to try and make sense, it arrived at just the right moments so you were feeling what the character felt as they learned who they were. Looking forward to the sequels.

    This was a good book. Has a little something for everyone. High School drama, some sports tossed in, as well as Greek Mythology. The whole are you good or evil thing going. Its about second chances at a life. Looking forward to reading the next one.
