My feelings:

What if color held the secrets to powerful magic?
Forced to move into the palace, Jessa begins training as a Color Alchemist under the direction of the kingdom's most eligible bachelor, Prince Lucas. As an alchemist, Jessa must capture and harness the color of living things. Every color has a unique purpose, except red. Red is the untapped magic no one can access—until Jessa.

Prince Lucas is running out of time. His mother is deathly ill and healing magic hasn’t worked. When Lucas suspects someone is using alchemy to control her, he sets out to discover the truth, no matter the cost.

My Review:
Doesn't the premise of Prism sound amazing? So, when I received the book I inmediatly started reading it. 

Jessa is a interesting character. She's determined, has a passion for ballet and can't for the life figure out why she has this new power. I liked her, but while she was thinking about escaping she also thought a lot about her feelings for prince Lucas. Now, prince Lucas might be very dashing, but if you were locked up would you really think about kissing him? No, you wouldn't. I also didn't quite get the attraction to prince Lucas, a little bit of insta-love here. 

The plot is nice. The mystery around the power is explained pretty well, no big mystery, and it might be just that in combination with the insta-love that I didn't really love the story. When the action kicked in, unfortunately near the end, it did got me hooked and excited.

Prism was entertaining, but something wasn't quite there to make me adore it.

Too bad this one didn't wow you but it still sounds like it had some really good points.

Sometimes insta-loves do not work for me either.

Too bad it wasn't as amazing as it sounded, but entertaining is still nice :)

You're right, this book does sound super interesting! And that cover is gorgeous! I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy it as much as you wished you had, but I still might add it to my TBR. :)

@Anna Knight: I totally agree, the cover is gorgeous!

@Midnight Cowgirl: I agree, entertaining can sometimes be enough!

@vvb32: I really hate those! I used to not really care about it, but lately they are super irritating. So, now I hate them. :)

@Carole: Maybe the next book will wow me. Fingers crossed.

Sorry to hear this wasn't a better read for you, especially since Jessa does sound like an interesting character. The insta-love would have been an issue for me too.

@Suzanne: Sometimes I don't really mind insta-love, but that's when the plot is super interesting and got me hooked. This insta-love I just couldn't understand, I needed a bit more depth to it.

The premise did sound intriguing! I actually haven't heard about this book before but reading your review I don't think I'll pick it up. I can't stand any shape or form of insta-love...

Have a great week and happy reading!

Nina  – (8 januari 2018 om 04:15)  

@Lynn: Then def. do not pick it up. If you really hate any forms of insta-love, you will hate this one! :( Sorry.

Insta-love is usually very hit or miss for me, and from your description I'm thinking it would be a huge miss here. Really who would think about kissing some hot guy when you're locked up? I think you'd be thinking about escaping...The premise does sound interesting though. Great review! :)

@Lauren: I know, right! Nobody would! :)
