    1. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Danika Stone.)Ava is an art student, and so is Cole. When they meet they’re instantly attracted to one another, but while they get to know each other a little better, they hold off from immediately starting a physical relationship.Ava and Cole have both had difficult upbringings, and have both had mother problems, so relate to each other completely. There is more to their history than either kn [...]

    2. Art can be revealing, connecting artist and viewer in unexpected ways. It can be healing, connecting the broken pathways of the mind. And it can hurt, bringing memories long buried to the fore. In Danika Stone’s Intaglio: The Snake and the Coins, art is all of this and more.An angry young woman has moved from painting illegal graffiti—two steps ahead of the law—to studying art in college. Her graffiti-born style attracts the eye of a newly famous painter and his agent, while her incisive o [...]

Half a block away, their combined shadow looks like wings of a single sea bird, wheeling in a bright sky. Two blocks further, and they looks like two boats, alone on an endless ocean. One block from that, and their joined bodies merged into a symbol of infinity."This book was beautiful and poetic, scarring and catastrophicVERI didn't know [...]

    4. *Thank you Danika for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review*Well, after flipping back and forth, back and forth, I decided to write about book 1 & book 2 in one review. The story flows so amazingly well, that it's hard to say that one books ends and another begins. I can't remember another novel that deals with past lives' memories resurfacing in the present. I loved this concept. I was absolutely drawn into the plot because of it. I have to say, though, honestly, the synopsis i [...]

    5. Intaglio: The Snake and the Coins was a really enjoyable book. I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the material as well as the sensuality of it! When I received my e-copy of the book, I did not look at the cover to get a sense of what was to come but it was hot, my dear readers. Children, middle grades, and young adults really need not apply. Ava and Cole are students at the same art college. They share a class together whose teacher is one of those teachers with whom you never quite conn [...]

    6. Ripples from multiple lives affect past, present and future.Intaglio are techniques in art in which an image is created by cutting, carving or engraving into a flat surface. The two novels that follow the lives of three artists (Ava, Cole, and Kip) grab the reader's imagination and attention from the first page. Past lives intrude into dreams to help the three lovers deal with their present problems, or do these memories interfere? Decisions made in the past might cause them to repeat mistakes u [...]

    7. Emotionally powerful immersion into the intertwined lives of two troubled artists. Danika Stone is obviously well versed in all mediums of art. Her descriptions paint the scenes in your mind's eye so you can actually see and feel the paint fly and the stones chip. Ava Brooks paints in all mediums, including spray-cans in a trainyards. Cole Thomas carves figures out of stone. They meet in an art class and have an instant connection, as if they'd known each other before.Both Ava and Cole are bothe [...]

    8. INTENSE AND EMOTIONALWhen Ava Brooks meets Cole Thomas a fellow art student. There is an immediate attraction between them. Ava is a painter, but also is not averse to spray painting graffiti on public buildings. Cole is a sculptor. But it is clear right from the beginning of this that Ava and Cole share a deeper connection. Both are having dreams, hinting at a past life where they knew one another. It's obvious from this that there was something dark in this previous life.When another artist Ki [...]

    9. This is a unique paranormal romance. We have no vampires or werewolves. Instead, we have impassioned college students whose past lives are tangled up in their present.The characters are painters and sculptors, and the author does an exceptional job of immersing us in the world of art. I felt their passion and their need to create. I could see the colors on the canvas, and feel the chisel vibrating in my hand.The story is well-written, though at times it moved too slowly for me. The romance and f [...]

    10. I found the story nicely-paced and the characters interesting, especially Ava, like her not enjoying her Foundations art class (I had a similar class when I was in college and I despised it and the professor) Her passion for her craft, as well as that of Cole's, is nicely illustrated, being an artist myself (mainly of the written word) I could really appreciate her descriptions of the creative process and how frustrating it could be sometimes.I do wish that the past story had been explained some [...]

    11. I reviewed this book on : Can you change your future, or are you destined to repeat past mistakes? The instant attraction between art students Ava, a painter, and Cole, a sculptor, is more than chemistry--although there's plenty of that to go around too. They're linked by a shared past, and by shared emotional trauma in the present. The well-drawn supporting cast includes Ava and Cole's art-school friends, an older generation dealing with their own problems, and a celebrity artist with a mysteri [...]

    12. First book for the Intaglio series, the motive of the story is not only love, but using negative energy to create something beautiful. I like the way the author thinks, although I prefer Chim to Cole, the characters are pretty cool.

    13. Bellissimo! <3“Make your choice” Oliver said “Everyone has one. Doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, you can change the things you hate. Because nothing is ever predestined.”Recensione anche sul mio blog:pleaseanotherbook.tumblr/p
