Hey all! I’ve been away for a while so I figured I’d come back and do all the reviews for the books I’ve been reading over these last few months. I was looking through the Orlando paper and I saw that it has really great suggestions for fun things to do in Orlando. Most of the events are very low priced but alot of them are totally free!! Anyway, so I found out that there was a Book Convention going on at the library and I just HAD to check it out!
Once there, I walked around and talked with a few of the authors that were there. Most of them I hadn’t heard of. I was just leaving when I walked past J.A. Sounder’s table. I had been by earlier in the day when the writers hadn’t arrived yet and was instantly drawn to her cover. Brandished on the table was a note saying “Free novel…just come say hi!” and OF COURSE that was a hook, line AND sinker! So I stopped by, quite oddly I might add, and she said hello. She was super nice and I introduced myself.
She gave me a book for free just as the sign said! After signing it, she gave a big smile and I knew it’d be the first one I’d read out of all the books I’d bought that day! I saw in the cover that this was the first book she’d written and instantly I was worried. I wasn’t sure what to expect and for some reason wasn’t feeling like being all that adventurous! Boy, was I in for a great surprise!
Now, on for the review. I absolutely loved the novel! It was crazy, it was filled with gore, it was filled with blood and fighting! As most people know, I am a sucker for romance! It had a great romance plot, one that I was on board with the entire time! I loved this new world that the author formed! The beauty of it just made me want to go there, not to get killed of course but to be under the ocean and watch the fish swim by. I wanted to go through Evie’s garden and take the tube from one sector to another. The story is very well crafted and thought out. It was filled with mystery, intrigue and true eye-opening surprise. It took me less than a few days to read this novel because I did NOT want to put it down at all. I was hooked from the first chapter!
It seems like the further I got into the book I kept wondering why no one has snatched this novel up yet. It has everything that you’d want to see before you. I mean come on people!!! After all of these other novels turned major motion pictures!? Why has no one made a movie out of this story yet? Where is the screen play? Where is the great following? If I’m so excited about this YA novel that so should you be! Ugh…it actually seems weird to me how much I loved it. I can’t wait until I get the second sequel. I believe it’s called Revelations? I’ll have to check it out. I can’t wait to see what is next for Evie!
Thank you J.A. Sounders for catching my eye and thank you for being a great writer! I definitely look forward to the next book and sharing a review of that one as well! Below you can find a link to her page, a few links to where you can buy the book.
Have you already read this book? Let me know what you thought, if you enjoyed it and how you felt! I would love to know!
