Nov 11, Kimberly rated it did not like it Shelves: A group of people accused as witches in Salem was banished and sent West to die. One of these children, Sadie, an awkward girl with jaw-dropping, supermodel-like looks and a super-smart brain she can read a book in about 25 minutes survivprs, decides it’s amandq for her to strike out on her own.
The first half of the book contained lots of references of Sadie’s reactions around humans–the lust from the men who see her and the jealousy from the women. Then there are also tons of references to brand-name clothing and cars way way way way too many references.
Poor Sadie–she’s burdened with tons of money and every man wants her. What’s a girl to do? Oh, except Sadie doesn’t want to live. She wants to be mortal, like other humans.
So she spends her days pining over her mortality, although I never really understood why. So okay, interesting enough story there. But once Sadie meets the mysterious Winter family–Edward Suddenly it is all about Edward–I mean Everett.
His lips are described as coral, then another time as peony what are “peony lips”?!? I just couldn’t take it any more.
Particularly smanda a good half of the book was used to introduce Sadie to Cole, and then in the space of a paragraph, Sadie is all about Edward grr Gee, I just don’t know why I keep messing up that name. So the book descends into a mishmash of creatures of the night and I just couldn’t stand it any more. I’ve never read the Twilight books, but even I could see the correlation from 50 pages away. I just didn’t like the story any more.
On Sadie’s Facebook page, there is lots of designer handbags and fashion talk! Everett, of course, posts photos of cars. Mar 28, Pam rated it it was amazing. I won this thru “First Reads” here on Good Reads!!
Looking for The Survivors? — Amanda Havard
What an interesting story! The idea I had about the book from the jacket blurb was far different from the reality! And the reality was much better probably explains why I am a reader and not a writer. I think that is what I enjoyed the most about Amanda’s writing Bits of info kind of thrown out, al Yay!
Bits of info kind survivkrs thrown out, almost in passing, that came back later amaanda a huge way Can’t wait to see how subsequent books are going to turn out!
Kristy, this one is coming to you! Mar 27, Devon Ashley rated it liked it Shelves: In general, the novel was interesting and I rounded up what I thought was a solid 3.

But…it was seventy pages of how awkward she felt in society, how she obsessed over every little movement she made and every word that came out of her mouth and how much she just wanted to die and end her mortality — yet when she came across a man that may have been able to do it hacard her, she hid.
And since she was able to read minds, she constantly told the reader how every guy thought she was a hot tbe and wanted her sexually and how the girls were jealous of her. I was so annoyed with Sadie and her snobbery that I almost put the book down. That said, once Sadie surrounded herself with immortals again, all those characteristics I found annoying and snobbish disappeared. Except the constant references to expensive fashion labels.
Luckily, the story got better from there. However, after I read the novel description and learned there would be shape-shifters, witches and dangerous vampires, I sort of expected some action.
The Survivors (The Survivors, #1) by Amanda Havard
In conclusion — The Bad: When Sadie is alone, she obsesses about her behavior around humans to the point I just wanna smack her.
Also, I prefer a little more action when reading supernatural books. I like the new spin on immortals and how certain breeds can mate in such a way that a completely new breed is created and how this new breed will become the problem for the next book. Truthfully, once Sadie stopped obsessing about the mortal world, the novel continually got better the further I read into it. Oct 06, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: I snagged this book at the library and didn’t know what to expect.
I have a few complaints, namely the inordinate amount of name dropping Havard does. Such descriptions are sprinkled throughout the book and it is obnoxious.
Initially, I found the story incredibly intriguing. Sadie and family have mysterious roots. Exiled from Salem following the witch trials, Sadie’s ancestors u I snagged this book at the library and didn’t know survicors to expect. Exiled from Salem following the witch trials, Sadie’s ancestors ultimately settle in an isolated part of Montana.
Fast forward to today- they’re still there. Not just the descendants, but the original exiles too. Something is different about Sadie and her family and she wants to know what.
Sadie and the Survivors contrast wonderfully from the Winter family. Sadie’s interactions with Cole and later Everett really reveal who she is, both to you as the reader and to her. Even though she’s nearly a century and a half old, she is in many ways the 21 year old she appears to be.
New to the world, her experiences in life and love are engaging. Unfortunately, the story borrows heavily from Twilight and loses much of that originality. I really did find myself saying, “vampires, really?
Thankfully, Havard has done her research and managed to hold my interest. I look forward to seeing what happens in the next installment. Jan 29, Elizabeth rated it did not like it. My complaints about this book can be summarized as follows: I assumed more fool me that the book would be more about the Salem witch trials Rather than doing what that good teacherly advice is supposed to do–make scenes come alive–it just makes every scene turn into an over-iced cake that collapses under the weight of so much Crisco.
Oh, and it’s a chocolate cake from Betty Crocker. Nov 08, KP rated it it was amazing. There are books out there right now that are being reviewed, tweeted about constantly, and altogether-hyped up. But underneath those amazing clothes and aloofness, Sadie is hiding secrets, lots of them. Amanda Havard leads you on a journey to learn and know all about Sadie and her past, present, and future.
