Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Phantom tornadoes, out-of-control trucks, haunted fireplaces, and self-heating bathtubs? It’s been a rough week for Aspen, and that’s saying a lot – especially because three years ago, she awoke alone in an empty cabin, not even knowing her own name. Unfortunately, things are only going to get stranger from here as she finally starts to uncover who - and what - she is. More

Review by: Marco on Sep. 19, 2018 :
Admittedly, I (too) rarely find myself reading a truly considerable number of pages in a book in a single sitting. Also, I tend to lean towards the classics rather than new publications. This book by Ms Rener was an exception to the latter - and turned out to be an exception to the former as well.

Perfectly balancing description and action, the story was enticing from the get-go. (And the last 70-odd pages had me forget all about the world around me.) The author excels at summoning the desired atmosphere in just a couple of sentences, resulting in a smoothly flowing narrative. However, smoothly flowing as it is, it is by no means predictable. The story has credible and relatable characters, who sometimes make you laugh because of the entirely human way they talk and act, without resulting in flat-out comedy. Rarely have I shared every single attitude towards the characters presented with the main character. Masterfully done, in my humble opinion.

As a matter of fact, I will also be getting the printed edition, which I tend to only do for books that I really appreciate. Despite the categorization of "young adult" and "women's fiction", this not-so-young adult man is very much impressed - and eager to get his hands on the second and third volume of this trilogy.
