Publisher's Summary

Eden Matthew's world is in shambles. Her grandfather viciously murdered, her twin brother held without magic, and her best friends imprisoned, all at the hands of the one man that was supposed to love her for eternity. She has been betrayed, and now she is being hunted by a king that wants her dead. Eden must pick up the pieces of her life and stand alone against the tyranny that threatens to destroy her world. Alone she must find a way to rebuild the Resistance, locate her missing parents, save her loved ones and take down the monarchy. Everything is against her, including forbidden feelings of a love that she thought was buried. She has declared war and now stands on the precipice of defeat. Losing is not an option however, and Eden must find a way to overcome her emotions, fight through her pain and restore the magic to her kingdom. Fearless Magic is the third installment of The Star-Crossed Series.

Had high hopes

I have hung on through this series with the hope that the author would finally make Eden a strong woman, instead of the childish, whiney, bitchy brat!!!! Dear lord at this point I am hoping her brother can take all of her powers kill her and finally free the poor immortals. The stupidity of Eden makes me cringe!!!!

Too Much Drama, No Substance

1st off I believe the performance by the narrator was excellent for the most part. She captured the essence of each character she spoke for. At times there was a blurring between Sebastian and Kiernan. I like the idea about a people with magic who were immortal versus the human race. I would like to see much more explanation in regards to the magic and what it can do besides battle people. I think it would be something to explore because I believe the magic could do so much. I was very frustrated to not be informed as to what the Rebels were doing besides saving other Immortals. What other things did they have that they were doing. I would like to see more character depth in terms of who they actually worried a little bit more of their lives. Now we come to Eden as the books went on she became more more insufferable. I have never experienced a protagonist who is so clueless to everything around her. So wrapped up in herself in her self pity. What other things did the Immortals do? What exactly does an Oracle do? I would like to see more character depth in terms of who they actually were and a little bit more of their lives. Now we come to Eden. As the books went on she became more and more insufferable. I have never experienced a protagonist who was so clueless to everything around her. So wrapped up in herself and in her self pity that I wanted to strangle her. If the writer had used the phrase "he moved with purpose" one more time I was also going to scream. Whoever edited this book really should have told the writer to be more expressive in terms of the use of the English language. When I got to the final chapter of the final book where there were to beat Lucan, I saw so many possibilities as to how this could happen to make it like an uprising where everybody stood up and beat him. I wanted to that sense of elation where people saved the day.. I felt it was a cop out that both her parents allowed themselves to be killed. Later I felt that in taking on the whirlwind was anti climatic as it didn't really explain what the wind was why it didn't like her. A lot of things were not explained in this book and it disappointed me. There was so much potential and so much that was lost with the constant whining of Eden. I found mself yelling at the audio book for Eden to shut up. There were still many things this character could have done. I don't see her as a hero I see her as someone who did not do anything spectacular except whine . I am glad the books were free and is the only reason I continued to read them. I like the other character. At least Eden could have tried harder to enlist more Titans.

Incessant Teenage Whining & Hysteria Becomes Tedio

Initially enjoyed the series, and the expected teen immaturity and angst. I continued through the series to this edition. This one, however, has pushed my patience a bit too far. There is no sign of growth or beginning of maturity, despite all she has been through and seen. Even as her incessant whining, entitlement, and stupid decisions cost her everything, she refuses to learn from mistakes or listen to more experienced peers. Add to this the squealing voice of the reader, and you may find yourself fast-forwarding through the worst of the “fingernails on a chalkboard” tone of the book.

Frustrating senseless drivel

Spoiler review: you have been warned. Ok let me start with some good stuff. The descriptive settings can be immersive and the battle scenes interesting enough to hold my attention. But i don't understand what the point was of building up Kiran's philanthropic and sweet side in the last book just to flip him so far away from that characterization in this one into some crazy evil guy. He was raised by a maniacal tyrant so I'd say his moral compass isn't balanced well but with that king as his role model even his good intentions can result in admittedly poor decisions. The protagonist is so whiny I want to scream. She literally stomps her foot and throws other temper tantrums that are so ridiculous and childish that I find myself hating her more and more throughout this series. It's as if they never played soccer with starving children in the ghettos of India while he handed out shoes and money to the poor. I feel like the author really wants me to hate Kiran now or whatever but I can't swallow his transformation into a villain. The writing is extremely lazy; honestly there are more words to describe looks or kisses than sweet or sweetly. I guess it's like junk food though, not good for you but I guess it'll do in a pinch when you don't want to take the time to cook a nutritious meal. the narrator does well but unfortunately the story is just @$%©! I'm hoping that the series is taking me somewhere better than it has so far. It had such potential as a creative playground but I fear the opportunity was wasted.

I can not have enough words to say how bad

The heroine is a whiner who takes decisions on impulse and a whim , has great power but doesn’t use it, whine , and whine and whine and has a pedicure a day before the battle that she doesn’t wage but surrenders!
I hated it.

Free is Tolerable

I can’t believe I’m still listening to this series. It’s included in my membership, so there’s a plus. Not only is Eden the most ridiculous so-called leader, there have been grammatical errors, factual errors (last book, it is NOT winter in February in South America), and what I can only assume is an over usage of a thesaurus because certain phrases are so utterly ridiculous. Some editor really needed to use that red pen more! I literally don’t care if this girl survives until the end. She’s a waste of fictional oxygen. Yes, I can quit at any time and I honestly don’t know if I’ll even get to the next book. Typically, I’m very easy to please. I like mindless, just for fun books. I don’t need books that require deep thinking all of the time. The narrator is doing a good job for such a whiny, not so smart character.

What the Freak!!!

Ok so I never write reviews, but OMG!!! I hate the Protagonist So Much!! She learns nothing, there is no growth in this character at all!! She realizes things and then forgets all about everything in the next chapter!! I want to yell at her, I mean I know she is a teenager but I've never met one this thick headed!!! I want to kick the author in the shin for whiting such a horrible female lead!!

meh....

I was disappointed with this book. I fell in love with the series, but I feel like the author ran out of ideas with this installment of the series. Eden was unconvincing with her severe "attitude" It was more "whiny teen," and less "righteous savior" She was way too flippant with deadly situations, making it corny. The love whiplash between boys was corny as well. I get shes a teenager, but come ooooonnn. Narrator consistency is always nice though.

Lacking

The story has so much potential but the heroine is completely self centerd and whiney. If my family were destroyed I certainly wouldn't have any further weakness for the people who caused it and she makes so many poor decisions I wanted to strangle her myself. I can't stand it when the main character is portrayed as weak and stupid. Had I known I would never have started this series.

Not as good as the last

It was definitely enjoyable and worth listening to, though I found it increasingly frustrating that Eden kept threatening to "kill" everybody even though she obviously was never going to. That seemed to be her solution to every situation.
Edens character was just whiny and has absolutely no redeeming qualities at all.
I wouldn't pay for this series, luckily its included in my membership.
