    One thought on “Amethyst Eyes”

    1. I got this book for free, in exchange of an honest review. Get your copy here.A good YA sci-fi novel, for many reasons. Some of which are:It was about teenagers who acted their age.There was no shortage of action.It portrayed the effects of losing a parent beautifully– from Tommy who couldn’t bear to lose the taste of his mom’s cooking. Jayden who couldn’t relate to her dad.The awkwardness between Tommy and his dad seemed very real.What seemed missing from the story:I couldn’t connect [...]

    2. OK, so I'm biased, but I really do like it. ;o)Emily 'LIKED' my comment, and sent me hers via facebook, so I'll share it here:I recommend this book to all the teachers out there who want to interest our youth to read more - This book will capture their interest and start them off on reading and in understanding the importance an interesting novel can make in their lives I give it a 5***** recommendation.

    3. Oh, this was like a breath of fresh air from the books I've been reading recently. Loved it. For 15 year old Tommy, life changes completely after his mom dies. His father takes him to live with him. And the cool thing is his dad lives in a ship, how cool is that? The story takes us through Tommy's journey as he tries to adjust to this new life, a life he was never prepared for (his dad is this feared ship commander). We see through his eyes, how he sees the world around him. There is a legend ab [...]

    4. Tommy doesn’t remember his father. He was two when his father left. His mom tells him that his father still loves them, but he can’t be with them. When Tommy’s mother tragically dies in a car wreck, Tommy’s Dad comes to care for him. That’s when Tommy’s life changes completely.Tommy is whisked away to a space ship and Tommy realizes that his father and everyone on the ship is an alien…and he is half alien! His mother never prepared him for this. Because he is half-alien and half-hu [...]

    5. Won this book. Thank you to Amber Lane @ Fall into Booksfalln2booksand Debbie Brown who kindly signed and mailed it to me.I was not expecting to really enjoy this book as I was under the impression that I do not like stories involving aliens. I was pleasantly suprised. I really loved this book.There was not one dull moment. Ms Brown kept me interested and wanting more right up until the end.I felt for Tommy who was being thrown from one trauma into the next. When he was introduced to Jayden I wa [...]

    6. This review was first published on my blog, hereI feel that the first thing I need to say before I start this review is that I never used to like Sci-Fi. In fact, I avoided it completely, certain that it was not a genre I was going to like. The problem being that my view of Sci-Fi was that it was all like Star Wars, Star Trek, or Battleship Gallatica; shows that really did not appeal to me at all. Then, I realised that avoiding an entire genre based on a few shows/films was a silly thing to do a [...]

    7. I really hate it when I am Twitter friends with an author, they send me their book to review, and all I can say is it is ok. I really want to love all books, but I just can't. They aren't all for me. This happened to be one of those books.You know those books that suck you in, you get wrapped in the stories, feel like you become one of the characters, and actually care what happens to them? That didn't happen here. I just couldn't get into this book. It felt more like I was being told a story th [...]

    8. What a great read! Just the right amount of sy fy mixed with slice of life. I can never get enough of space travel :]There is a review and author interview up on my blog!Look for it littlehyuts(I received a copy of Amethyst Eyes from the author as a review copy)I have given this book 5 stars! I do not give out five star ratings often but I truly think this book deserved it!I had been looking for a story just like this and then, BAM! I met Debbie Brown and there it was.This book is science fictio [...]

    9. Amethyst Eyes is the first sci-fi novel I’ve ever read and I enjoyed it very much. This is more than just an adventure into another world. Love and emotions are written between the lines on almost every page. The story is about a teenage boy, Tommy, whose mother dies in a tragic car accident. Tommy was very close to his mother and Debbie Brown gave the reader a little preview into their daily lives together before the mother died. In just a few pages Debbie made me hear the laughter they’d s [...]

    10. Alright, so the book is finished and here's my review.I have never been a fan of sci-fi and this is where my habit of not reading a blurb caught up with me. *Sigh* This one's a sci-fi adventure.I liked the way the book started. It was both cheery and interesting and I wanted to know what would happen next.I had not contemplated a space ship and another planet on the horizon but that is precisely what happened. Lots of different gadgets and ways of living came up. Quite interesting to know of lif [...]

    11. Heather's Review: I have been a fan of science fiction ever since I first saw Star Wars in 1977 at the age of 4. As I got older and began reading, I found myself drawn to the genre in book form as well. I must say that I generally have never been much of a reader of the young adult genre, even when I was a young adult, but the sci-fi/fantasy aspect of the summary intrigued me. I’m so glad I took the leap. I really enjoyed how the author took an everyday dramatic human tragedy to set the story [...]

    12. All I can say is Wow, Wow, and Wow again.I’m not a sci-fi person/reader/writer but I take my hat off for authors who do write in this genre. This book was really well written, crafted with well developed characters. The plot is excellent and Debbie Browne has hooked me from the first page of this story.It follows Tommy. Dad left when he was two and the only thing he knows about his father was that he loves him but for some reason couldn’t live with them. Then his mother died in a car crash. [...]

    13. This is not a book that I “should” like considering who I am… But I liked it anyway. Somewhere along the line, I have almost lost my ability to read fiction. I am generally not interested in young peopleor stories about young people. And I am no science fiction buff. Without giving any of the surprises away, I really enjoyed this read and the story of this young man and the process he has to go through in losing his mom and adapting to a new life with a Dad he’s neverhad before. The writ [...]

    14. I really enjoyed this book!! Tommy's adventure in a new world with the father he never knew is very exciting and teaches a lot about cultural differences and what we can learn about each other. I love the whole idea of "the link" and how it is something we can develop, as Two Feathers does, a link that helps us be aware of those we love and how they're feeling (I'd say it's a bit like the force in Star Wars, but more centered around feelings and connecting with other people, which I really enjoy [...]

    15. This is one of my first science fiction books. In that sense, I enjoyed it. The different worlds seemed plausible, and nothing honestly felt too far fetched. Tommy, the main character, experienced many new things and took them all in stride. His feelings and reactions were very similar to those of any typical teenage boy. I wish there would have been a better development between Tommy and his new experiences onboard the ship. With more of a picture of the day to day life and how the ship looked [...]

    16. I admit when I first picked up Amethyst Eyes I was expecting your typical coming of age story, ie: boy losses parent, is taken in by his other parent, meets new people, and must make sense of it all. Got all that? Good. Sounds simple enough, right? Nuh uh. That’s what I thought and I was wrong.Debbie Brown did a masterful job of taking young Tommy and all of those time honored traditions and made them fresh and exciting. When Tommy’s mother is killed in an auto accident, he’s taken in by h [...]

    17. I really enjoyed [Amethyst Eyes] by [Debbie Brown]. In the introduction it states it was written for reluctant readers, which is what I teach. I fully agree that young adults that don't like reading will enjoy the story of coming of age with a twist. Imagine your world as you know it being turned upside down at fifteen years old. Your mom dies in an accident, you are seriously injured, finally your dad, who you haven't seen since you were little, comes to take you home with him. Here is the twis [...]

    18. Disclaimer: I won a copy of this book back in January and sadly I didn't find time to read it earlier. Good YA story with a 15-year-old who acts his age and not like a spoiled brat for a change. I loved the way we were introduced to Tommy and later on to his father. I could feel the anguish that all the huge changes brought in Tommy's life, which made for a very likeable character. The special relation between son and father was touching. Now, I was hoping for an alien on Earth because I'm usual [...]

    19. As a person who would much rather read a good book than watch TV, I thought that this book was perfect. It led you on a roller coaster ride of emotions, tears, fears, anger and triumphs. The characters, Tommy and Jayden, were true 15 year olds and acted accordingly, which is very refreshing. Although this book will not please everyone, it is a MUST read for teenagers. It is an easy read with down-to-earth reading that keeps you turning the pages Can't wait for the rest of the trilogy. With thank [...]

    20. From the first moment when you are dropped right into the action, through the different developments in the story, from the emotional journey to the physical one, the book grabs hold of you and won't be put down. You get to know and like an interesting and eclectic group of people who keep you entertained and curious about them throughout the whole story. The action never stops and takes you into some unexpected directions, that, in the end, all make sense and turn this into a complete saga of o [...]

    21. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The characters are deep and the action sequences are exciting. While the technology is interesting, it doesn’t overshadow the fact that this is a story about people living and growing while facing adversity. The book’s main character, Tommy, is thrust into a new and scientifically intimidating world because of tragic circumstances. I was drawn into Tommy’s exploration of his new surroundings and his growth and couldn’t wait to see what would happen to him [...]

    22. First off I just want to say that I devoured this book from start to finish. I truly enjoy sci-fi readings but few are able to capture my attention and this book, from the start, took me on a great journey. What makes this reading so extraordinary is the mixture of sci-fi, spirituality and real life emotions. Simple and yet so rich in imagination. The characters are so well drawn out and well detailed that I was able to slide myself into the story has one of them.I read this book every moment I [...]

    23. To be honest I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book clearly aimed at young adults but I got pulled in soon enough. I liked the pacing, the style and length. It had the right amount of details never bogging me with stuff I could get lost in or confused with, the right amount of suspense to keep me wanting to read more and anytime I had questions because things didn't make sense, it was answered in the next chapters. A joy to read and can't wait to read more from this writer [...]

    24. I thought this book was amazing. The Author did a beautiful job at connecting real life emotions and drama to an imaginary world. A world with a different culture, where children are just children and are supposed to be silent and innocent.This will all change after the arrival of Tommy, who shows courage and determination and proves to his father how culture on earth allows children to become contributing members of society. I would invite you to read this book and hope you will enjoy it as muc [...]

    25. Imagine you find out your dad is an alien. That’s how the story opens up, with Tommy being whisked away from Earth by his alien father. Culture shock takes on a whole new meaning! This story follows Tommy as he adapts to his new family, life on a spaceship and the adventures all that entails. This is not an edge-of-your-seat sort of Sci-Fi adventure, but there’s enough action to keep the reader’s interest. There’s a number of unanswered questions, which I presume the sequel, as well as t [...]

    26. I have purchased Amethyst eyes from before x-mas… I have taken the time during the holidays to relax and read this book, I must admit with cadets, it’s always difficult for me to take the time…Well, let me tell you…wow, am I happy that I took the time, this book allowed me to see a different dimension of our kids…I loved it and so did my daughter. I can assure you, the next Debbie Brown book, I will purchase, you can be sure of that… Amethyst I would recommend this book to all ages, [...]

    27. I really enjoyed this book. The characters are rich and interesting. You are quickly pulled into their world and dynamics. The book is told from Tommy's POV however you get a good glimpse into those surrounding him. Amethyst Eyes brings you fast paced action, heart felt moments and pretty much everything in between. Time and money well spent! My only regret was that it came to an end. I want to know what happens next.

    28. I found myself quickly identified to the main character, Tommy, who's life gets turned up side down in the first few lines of this novel. For most people the teenage years are ups and downs and a time where many changes take place but for Tommy it's the discovery of new people, places and ways of life. I found myself always wanting to turn the next page to discover, with Tommy, the new world he had been thrown into. There's a good mix of adventure, mystery and humor. Great read!

    29. I really enjoyed this book. I grew up watching startrek and all with my dad and i do believe this is the first book ive read based mostly in space but it was great. The characters were likeable (tho personally i wouldve flipped more than Tommy did), i liked his dad alot and Jayden is a hoot. The story line was amazing and original and well developed. There was only one part that i had to go back and make sure i didnt miss anything, but after reading further that too made sense. Great job!
