Product description

Product Description

When Tyler became Connor’s interpreter, he thought all that entailed was translating the Prophet’s cryptic messages about future events.

However, it doesn’t take him long to realize Connor needs more than that. First and foremost, he needs a friend, someone who will stand up for him at the Academy, the elite school they both attend and where Connor, despite his talent, is far from popular. He also needs someone who understands that, for him, the talent of prophecy is a curse he would get rid of if he only could, a curse that pushes him toward substance abuse and oblivion.

It also doesn’t take Tyler very long before he starts seeing Connor as more than a friend, and he’s lucky enough to have Connor return his feelings. Just as things begin to settle down, however, the arrival of a new Prophet at the Academy threatens Connor’s hard-won and still-fragile peace of mind.

Through it all, Tyler is all too aware that every day brings Connor closer to being eighteen, the age of his prophesized death, two years after their first meeting.

[Because it deals with themes such as drugs and sexuality and includes some swearing, this book is intended for mature young adults.]

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Stories Mark You 9 March 2014

Some stories are frivolous and fun, others dense and ominous, but a truly great story- the kind that gets inside you, marks you as theirs and ultimately changes you in a lasting way are far more elusive, and therefore meaningful. "You Promised Me Two Years" is one of those rare breeds. It delivers a story of friendship, acceptance and love that everyone should read, not just those looking for something from the LGBT YA section; it successfully transcends labels, genres and your high expectations.

Angela Yseult has created an astonishingly affecting, inventive, and most satisfying story about two young men, Connor and Tyler, who remind us all what love is really about- each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing story! 9 March 2014

You Promised Me Two Years is one of the best YA love stories I have read in a while. The setting is fascinating - an alternative reality where Prophets are held in high regard, and they are paired with interpreters who can make sense of the words they say. But the strong point of this author is that she writes characters who are dimensional and who truly come alive for the reader. They felt like friends by the end of the story. You can feel what Tyler and Connor go through. I was as frustrated as Tyler with how stubborn and moody Connor can be, and I think the reader falls in love with Connor right along with Tyler through reading the pages of this story. The nemesis of the story, Christensen, is well placed and a worthy foil to Connor. He offers a good amount of tension and drama to the story, as well as a bit of mystery to unravel. I so enjoyed this story, and was left wanted to know more about Connor and Tyler. I look forward to reading more stories by Angela Yseult.
5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story 20 March 2014

I don't usually read books for young adults so I had no idea what I would find in this book. What I found was a wonderful story about two young men finding out what was important in life. Connor is a Prophet, the youngest of three in the United States at the moment. He Sees events but he needs an interpreter to understand and translate to others what he says. Tyler is brought to the Academy to be paired with Connor for that purpose. When they meet, Tyler is told by Connor "Twin lambs"-and Tyler tells the Headmistress and Secretary that he will be his interpreter for two years. This is not the true Message though-Connor has told Tyler to not expect to make a career out of this interpreter thing as he'll watch Connor die in two years. So begins the story of two very different young men and how they come to love each other and how love changes a destiny. Oh, and by the way-it does have a surprising ending. I'm looking forward to reading more by Ms. Yseult.

I didn’t even finish reading the blurb before I knew I just HAD TO have “You Promised Me Two Years by Angela Yseult”. I love unusual fantasy books and this sounded too good to pass up. And I wasn’t disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed every word of this book.

Connor is a Prophet. He has visions of the future but needs an interpreter to translate for him. He speaks English, but not in a way most people understand. To most people, he’s talking nonsense. Only special people, so-called interpreters, can understand the real meaning behind the “nonsense”.

Tyler is one of those special people and he’s chosen to be Connor’s interpreter. Connor’s very first prophecy is his own death. Two years from now, he’ll die, with Tyler by his side.

I immediately fell in love with both MCs, even though Connor’s a bit difficult in the beginning. Neither of them is perfect. I loved that neither of them was perfect. Connor has a habit of stubborn sulking and Tyler gives in too easily, just to make Connor happy. Connor is a bit of a genius, both in science and with the violin, but his flaws made him incredibly likeable all the same. Some of my favourite scenes were definitely Connor playing the violin for Tyler.

Their love story was so wonderful. It was very easy to understand their feelings for each other. There was no major relationship angst. Sure, they did have some misunderstandings but they always worked it out eventually. The complications definitely weren’t the focus of the relationship. Most of the time they spent together on page as a couple was incredibly loving and trusting. Connor finds ways to express his feelings without words and Tyler learns to interpret the smallest sounds Connor makes.

But just when I was sitting there, all happy, with a dopey smile on my face, I got a reminder that this relationship couldn’t last, that time was short. It was heartbreaking to watch Connor’s struggle with his life as a Prophet. Being a Prophet comes with certain expectations that he often didn’t accept, making his life a lot harder and making my heart break for him over and over again. It was so easy to relate to Tyler’s frustration at his inability to really make a difference for Connor.

But there is so much more to this book than the simple love story. There’s the sudden appearance of another Prophet, who seems hell-bent on discrediting Connor’s abilities. Connor and Tyler both have their troubles with their families and Connor’s death is looming over all of it, of course.

I loved the setting. It’s very unusual and the author definitely has a great imagination. She obviously put a lot of work into essentially creating a new language for Connor.

By now you’re probably wondering why I knocked off half a star. Well, once again I missed the world building. The basics were covered pretty well, but I would have loved more, especially because this is such an unusual premise. A little more in-depth world building and this book would have been perfect.

To sum it up, “You Promised Me Two Years” is a bittersweet love story, with plenty of plot outside the romance, lovable protagonists and an intriguing fantasy setting. I just wish the author had explained even more about the fantasy aspects. I’d love to read another book set in this world and I’ll definitely take a look at the author’s other works.

I agree with the blurb that this works best for “mature young adults”. Some of the themes might be disturbing if you’re too young.

The cover by Jonathan Chong is absolutely gorgeous. It looks so very magical and catches the feeling of the book perfectly. Great eye catcher and one of the most beautiful covers I’ve seen in a while.
