Ever by Gail Carson Levine

by Gail Carson Levine
Summary from Goodreads:

"Falling in love is easy . . .

. . . for Kezi, a beautiful mortal, dancer, and rug weaver, and for Olus, Akkan god of the winds. Their love brings Kezi the strength to fight her fate, and it gives Olus the strength to confront his fears. Together -- and apart -- they encounter spiders with webs of iron, the cruel lord of the land of the dead, the mysterious god of destiny, and the tests of the Akkan gods. If they succeed, they will be together; but if they fail, Olus will have to endure the ultimate loss, and Kezi will have to make the supreme sacrifice.
Newbery Honor author Gail Carson Levine has created a stunning world of flawed gods, unbreakable vows, and ancient omens. Her story of love, fate, and belief is spellbinding."


I was intrigued by the premise of the story so of course, I devoured the book. Sadly, it wasn’t what I expected it to be. Somehow I keep questioning how did Kezi and Olus fall in love with each other? I didn’t see or feel much of a connection between them that would uphold their “feelings” for each other. It just wasn’t there. However, the plot was well written despite the lack of connection between the two. 

I do love the complexity of the book; also, the show of rarity.
