Rave Reviews -- Yeah!

First I want to thank all those who have given feedback for the contest. If you've been following my blog, you see it's on my mind... a lot, as I wait for the April 27th results and Publishers Weekly's review.

I'm happy to share these reviews with you!

Amazon.com Review

Overall, I thought this excerpt was a fun read, with a bit of suspense thrown in for good measure. There were a lot of areas of Julia's life that were not explained, and her character was like a chameleon that kept changing in every new scene, so I couldn't really get a handle on the type of person that she is portrayed to be. Hmm..on second thought, maybe that is exactly how a 16 year old is supposed to act! I yhink that a younger audience might really like this story. It should definitely be considered a fantasy genre.

Amazon.com Review

I would like to read this story. The plot, hook, characters and setting unfolded rapidly grabbing my interest from the start.

Really catchy beginning -- Ericka "Bookie" (5 stars)


I like the fact that you don't know much about what's happening in the beginning, or exactly who it is that is hanging from this cliff... Though you suspect it to be the main character, there isn't much that really solidifies that fact, holding my interest.

The rest of the excerpt slowly builds momentum, but it's in that first preface that you get a sense of the excitement from this author. I wish there was a little more to read!

Worth another round in this fight for sure!

Twilight meets Lost Boys -- J. Abbott (5 stars)


The author does a great job drawing you into this book. A mysterious stranger, students disappearing and a dark secret remembered are just a few of the things that makes this a page turner. It is a great book that I finished too quickly and now I have to wait for volume 2.

and my favorite... From Author Abra Ebner of The Knights Angels Series (5 stars)


When I first began reading this book, I truly lost track of time. When the excerpt came to an end, I was admittedly dissapointed - I wanted more... Luckily for me, she has the full version on Kindle, and I was not let down!

The excitement I felt in the first few moments of this book carries throughout. Her characters are well developed and concise, emitting a feeling of true connection to the author herself. She speaks with knowledge toward the fleeting emotions of a sixteen year old, and the sudden romance we all once had.
