I’m sorry, but my fangirl side is going to come out. I absolutely LOVED this book. I mean, crazyyelling, jumping up and down, telling everyone they need to read it love. Idevoured it and constantly wanted more. As soon as I finished, my response was,“I need more, and I need more now! Please tell me there is another book in thenear future.”  The author was kind enough to assure me before I had aheart attack that there will be a second book coming later this year. YES! Now,I just have to live through the months of withdrawals from this world until Ican get my hands on the next book.
The book wasbeautifully written and was an engrossing incredible read. I was immediatelysucked in by the writing. I was learning about the new world along with thecharacter, which was fun. I could easily feel her excitement, anguish, pain,and other emotions along the way.  It was easy to connect with thisbook and get lost in it, feeling like I was in the story.
The characters werewonderful, and some of them caught me off guard, surprising me. Things happenedin the book that I didn’t see coming, which was awesome. (I’m not going to tellyou what they are and spoil it; you are just going to have to read it.) I lovebeing surprised, instead of the story being predictable. The author did anamazing job with this. I really look forward to reading other works by thisauthor, especially the sequel to this book. If you haven’t read this book, READIT!
I entered a giveawayto win this book and was promptly contacted by the author. She asked me ifI would be interested in reviewing a copy of this book. I thought the storysounded very interesting, so I was really excited to be asked to review a copyfor her and excitedly accepted the request. Thank you, W.J. May!
