Book Review – The Line Between by Tosca Lee

I wrote this review for Chick Lit Café. Check out their site for book marketing and great reviews!

The Line Between is an exciting, gripping thriller you won’t be able to put down!  Tosca Lee has now been firmly added to my must-read list, and this book sits with pride on my bookshelf. 

What a character Wynter Roth is: young, brave, loyal and determined.  I was mesmerized by the dramatic events that came her way.  Outwardly, submissive and accepting of the cult’s rules, yet inwardly wondering what freedom might be like.  If she could disappear with Jaclyn and her niece Truly, she’d risk crossing that line and would escape ‘New Earth’ taking her chances amongst sinners.  Her sister won’t leave now she’s married, so Wynter keeps her thoughts to herself and determines to stay and be content, so long as she can spend time with Truly.

Things don’t go smoothly, and someone’s plotted against her.  Now her dream of a free life has turned into a nightmare, as she’s thrown out of her home, passed through the security gates and into a world she doesn’t know.  She’s crossed over.  One and a half feet, the distance of a step, that line between Heaven and hell or a single leap of faith.  A face from the past, her mum’s friend Julie, turns up like a guardian angel to whisk Wynter to her home, offering Wynter a life she’s suddenly not sure she wants.  If this wasn’t dramatic enough, something is going on; something that scares Wynter to death as she begins to dread ‘the end’ has come.  People are getting ill and going crazy.  Slowly, a virus is oozing its way across America.  Fear levels rise.  Survival mentality kicks in and all hell breaks out.

The plot thickens when Jaclyn turns up in the middle of the night, carrying an extremely valuable secret.  The race is on.  Wynter ignores danger and sets off on a mission of vital importance, heading into a world she doesn’t know at a time when panic is spreading.  Will she make it in time?  Will she make it at all?  And who is Chase and can she trust him?

Lots of research make this story (frightening) a real possibility.  Life is stranger than fiction, they say, and actual events are the inspiration behind this fabulous piece of fiction.  Enthralling, smart, page-turning and unforgettable!  The Line Between is a thriller that grips you to the pages and keeps you wanting more.  After writing this review I’m going straight to pick up book two, A Single Light, I’m so excited, can’t wait to start reading to find out what happens next!

Book Review – On Twilight’s Wings by Ariel Paiement

Blurb

She is the key to everything.
Until a few months ago, Cat’s only worries were about her foster parents and whether she’ll be shipped off to another boarding school over the summer. Dealing with a painful past and a friendless existence were at the top of her priority list.
All of that is about to change.
Shortly after she finds out that she’ll be remaining home for the summer, the visions, headaches, and terrible pains start. Then a new guy shows up in her quiet neighborhood, and, suddenly, her visions are showing events surrounding him and other strange beings.
Nothing is as it seems.
In this new world, nothing is the way it was, and everything requires her to become more than a frightened foster kid trying to make it through the day. She’s determined to get answers, but the more she sees in her visions, the less certain she is that she wants those answers.
But answers are coming.
Like it or not.

My Review of On Twilight’s Wings (The Eclesian Chronicles Book 1)

4/5 stars

This is a well written, enjoyable YA fantasy, with strong characters and an interesting storyline.  I love stories about Angels and really enjoyed the love story between Cat and Gabe.

The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is purely because of my past I struggle with stories of abuse and prefer more upbeat books so I can hide away from reality. There is also no ending which was disappointing, but glad to see this is book one and more will follow as I’d like to know what happens next.

Definitely a story young adult females will love.

Book Review – In For A Spell by Sharon Clare

Magical, enchanting, romantic, heartwarming… just a few words to describe this lovely book. Ever since I was little I have loved fairy tales. The magic, the mystery, the happy-ever-after. In For A Spell is definitely an adult (quite adult in one particular section!) fairy tale – and I loved it!

Finn, the interfering Elf, reminded me so much of Rumpelstiltskin it just made me smile every time he turned up on a page. This book is, however, much more than a fairy tale. For a start it’s a time-travelling romance, and a really good one at that. Maisie Armstrong is a wonderful character. I loved reading about the virtues that we nowadays would consider ‘old-fashioned.’ And who wouldn’t want to travel back in time to a place where honour was held in high regard? Especially if there was a tall, handsome, complicated laird Thane McKendrick waiting to sweeep you off your feet? This story is told really well, it flows smoothly and held my attention on every page. The theme takes you on a debate as to what really defines love and it’s importance in society in general, rather than just in your own life. Quite thought provoking. If you’re an adult, who like me, still loves a bit of magic, then this is a book you should read.

Sharon Clare has written other books and I really look forward to reading them. She is also an artist and offers book cover designs for authors. Sharon’s web page
