Book Summary:

Foreign, or rather unfamiliar, would be the word I would use to describe how I felt.

Faintly, I could hear the glimmer of voices surrounding me in this dark haze, caressing my ears like skin against silk. I felt like I was in a cocoon of sorts, protectively enveloped, quietly drifting in some far-off place. I wanted to stay that way forever.

But we all know that what you want never really seems to happen in the real world.

Something’s not right in Mia’s head.

The first thing is that her name isn’t Mia. In fact, she has no clue what her name is—who she is. All that she knows is that she’s not like the ones who found her: Dante with his kind blue eyes, Amy with her child-like demeanor, James with his questioning gaze.

And Briggs.

The one she cannot decipher no matter how hard she tries.

As Mia tries to fit in with these people, a strange occurrence is amidst outside. And as she finally remembers who she is …

Well, let’s just say that things get a little more complicated.

(YA Paranormal Romance Novella)

 

Satty's Review

 

 

The whole story is amazing. I felt a little bit confused at first and it seemed that the pace is too fast for me to be comfortable with but slowly the pace became normal and I could lose myself within the plot and enter into the life of the characters. I think the main reason behind this is that the book is a novella and in most cases I found that novellas are always a bit rushed and end with unanswered questions but this book succeeded in laying down a perfect opening ground for the following novel.
This book really involves an interesting mystery as we find that the protagonist Mia wakes up totally blank minded and doesn’t remember even her name. Then the story slowly continues and part by part Mia’s memory comes back and a very surprising even shocking revelation awaits the readers at the ending chapters.
I liked the concept and the plot and also loved the detailed descriptions that the author provided. Though I felt a little uncomfortable at first but the smooth writing style of the author brought me back within the story. The characterization is good but the background of the individual characters is missing and we don’t get to know much about them.
The emotions are portrayed remarkably within the skilled words of the author that bound me with the characters and also made me cry. The world building is great and the whole story seemed believable given the vivid details of the surroundings.
Overall a great read and would like to recommend it to ya all and hope that you guys will like it. Enjoy!!!
