Shy, thirteen-year-old Zylia has always known she was different. Most teenagers feel unnoticed and unseen, but for Zylia, it’s something much worse. She’s disappearing from this world and doesn’t know how to stop it. At times, she’s not sure she wants to. Until she stumbles across a family mystery surrounding the disappearance of her great-aunt Angelica years earlier. During her quest to unravel the mystery, Zylia discovers she’s able to cross the boundary and enter the “in between” world. Now, it’s up to Zylia to save herself before she’s trapped “in between” forever.

Warning: This is an emotional story that makes you think about own identity.

First of all, I would like to say thank you the Shannon and Misty for the book. It was a real pleasure to read it and a great way to start my 2018, this being my second book of the year.

Second of all, I would like to say that I was pleasantly surprised. When I was considering to read the book, I came in reading with an assumption- that it was going to be really emo and another over-exaggerated tale about a teenager who thought that their life was depressing. Oh my goodness, you have no idea how good it felt to find it not so.

This is a great book with deep characters and a thorough story line where everything fits like a good puzzle. I like the message that this books sends and how I can think about it a month later after reading it.

Well done.

Recommended to teens and older.

Book Review: Immortal Flame

Book Title: Immortal Flame immortal flame

Book Author: J. F. Holland

Source: K.U.

Rating: 4 Dragon Paws 4

Considering that vampires don’t turn into bats in this novel, I found the cover to be a little funny. hehe

The first couple of chapters are a little rough and I would say that it needs another proofread but the story is funny. How can it be funny if it’s about vampires? Well, because it involves a supernatural dating website and a female human who gets under the skin of a certain vampire.

Even though this is book one a series, the characters appear in the author’s other series. I only learned that after reading till the end, so be prepared that if you liked the characters to check out the author’s other series. ^_^

I recommend this books to those who like reading about vampire romance and want a laugh.

Book Review: Witch Hunt

Book Title: Witch Huntwitch hunt

Book Author:  J.R. White

Source: Bought from Amazon

Rating: 4.5 Dragon Paws 5-paws

I found this book through the author after asking around questions about werewolves and mates. It’s a great find, though I’m not a fan of the cover. It doesn’t scream out to me. The guy looks more like a vampire. But, don’t let the cover stop you from enjoying it.

The book is interesting because it’s different from the other books that I read about witches. The main character is running from blood witches and invokes the Wild Hunt which ends up with her finding out that she has a mate. The characters are well developed and I liked reading about how the wolves run.

I recommend this book to readers who like reading about werewolves and witches. It’s for 18+ readers.
