Two Thousand Years Reviews
This book had such promise, but truly under delivered. I feel like so much was left out, including backstory or main plot. There were also lots of typos and grammatical errors. Sad because I liked the concept but never truly formed
[I am reviewing this book through Wattpad before it was taken down.]
I found it a fascinating Fantasy novel to read, as it lures readers to want more as the plot thickens. A tale of an ordinary girl taken away to a place known as the Empire by a handsome crown prince would be almost every girl's dream. But with chaos hidden in between, the story is not what it seems to be.
The minor cussing is the only pinpoint that I do not like for to me it is not something I find very often if Fantasy stories. ...more
The world-building in this novel is phenomenal... the level of detail and realism really kept me reading to learn more about the Empire. There are layers of history and conflict that make this story richly complex. I usually find protagonists that are intended to be “relatable” aren’t my jam, but Alex is written in a way that makes her seem like a real human, not a plot device. She questions things, she’s practical. She doesn’t overreact, but she also doesn’t hide her frustration. She made me wo ...more
Two Thousand Years is the kind of book that you pick up and binge read all at once. This is a dark fantasy full of romance, adventure, and heartbreak. It's New Adult - but I do think that mature YA readers would enjoy it as well!
The Empire is a beautifully crafted world - M. Dalto gives us enough world building to see the beauty (and the darkness) of this alternate universe, without using excessive detail.
The characters are phenomenal, and the villain is one of those that you probably won't be ...more
Sounds like something I'd like...
What does this book have? Political intrigue, soul mates, magic, romance, and Boston. Okay, well, the latter might not matter to you, but it does to me! ;)
To begin with, the characters each have their own personalities; they leaped off the page for me. Alex, in particular, represents both a strong female character and also a typical masshole—which I adore. While it begins in Boston, MA it swiftly transports us to another realm where we meet more characters and get to feel the grittiness of the ...more

My Full Wattpad review:
Can İ just fangirl a bit before starting this review?
This book is everything my life amd beyond.
It's not one of those books that you exactly have to relate to to love. It just grabs you by the collar and makes you adore its every single page.
This may be a pet peeve of mine, but I don't like purple prose unless it's used to describe something that seems bea ...more
I had a lot of problems with this book, one of them was with the main character; Alex. She is transported to this foreign world, essentially kidnapped by this guy yet her first instinct is not to run, it’s to have a conversation with the guy who kidnapped her. He repeatedly knocks her and then declares that they are too marry - this time she freaks out. But when he catches her again, she’s all ‘confused’ about why he makes her feel ‘safe’.
Just to top it off, when said guy is shaking her about an ...more
