Heartborn Review



By Terry Maggert

I received a free copy of Heartborn from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

Her guardian angel was pushed.

Keiron was never meant to be anything other than a hero. Born high above in a place of war and deception, he is Heartborn, a being of purity and goodness in a place where violence and deceit are just around every corner.

His disappearance will spark a war he cannot see, for Keiron has pierced the light of days to save a girl he has never met, for reasons he cannot understand. Livvy Foster is seventeen, brave, and broken. With half a heart, she bears the scars of a lifetime of pain and little hope of survival.

Until Keiron arrives.

In the middle of a brewing war and Livvy’s failing heart, Keiron will risk everything for Livvy, because a Heartborn’s life can only end in one way: Sacrifice.

Fall with Livvy and Keiron as they seek the truth about her heart, and his power, and what it means to love someone who will give their very life to save you.

Summary from Goodreads.

I have absolutely no idea what was going on with this.

Heartborn starts off confusing, and just went downhill form there. We have Keiron, and angel who was pushed down from the heavens and Livvy, a girl with half a heart. Although this story is about these two, Livvy and another girl called Cressa get POV chapters. Cressa is still up in heaven and we see the aftermath of what happened to Keiron through her eyes.

I just found this very hard to understand what was occurring, and even when everything was explained at the end, it found myself even more confused. I found what was going on in heaven more interesting than what was going on down here on Earth, but even then I was not fully able to grasp what the point of all this was.

I feel like that Heartborn would have greatly benefited if it had decided to concentrate on only the stuff that was occurring in heaven and leave the rest a mystery because as soon as we were down here on Earth, everything was just spelled out. The plot-twist was a plot-twist, but I did not find myself surprised as I just found it confusing, especially regarding everyones reaction to it.

I am sure that some people will love this book, but I would urge most people to not waste their time on it.
