INITIAL THOUGHTS

I really, really enjoyed this book for the most part!! The dialogue was STINKIN BEAUTIFUL (but sometimes hard to follow; like at one point they’re flying around and maybe I’m just lazy–which is totally possible–but I skipped over it because there were too many words and adjectives and GAHHHH I wanted to get back to everything else).
At one point, I also wanted to strangle Hawk because like JUST LET GO OF EVERYTHING but that was the beauty of her character. She was a poor little squashed orange that was being told it needed to reconstruct itself.

This book reminded me A LOT of Dr. Strange (maybe because of the whole channeling energy thing and the dimensions), maybe a bit too much.

However, over all? Why do you think I gave it four stars?! Emmons did an AMAZING job pulling us into her story. I think I read it over 2 or 3 days on my vacation to CO and every moment I wasn’t snowmobiling or fighting off wolves or saving snowmen I was reading this book. (Actually, I was just editing my own book and watching Psych but hey same thing and yes I did snowmobile) Definitely a super amazing self-published book. Never would’ve guessed it was self-published, which is ALWAYS A GOOD THING!

I recommend this book to ANYONE who enjoys a good, thrilling story with a bit of sci-fi. I feel like this book is going to get really popular!! Someone make a movie already. And someone send me the second book, too. It ended with a cliffhanger (GAHHHH THOSE KILL ME anyone remember Between the Lions from PBS?? And that cliffhanger dude? HE LITERALLY KILLED MY SOUL. I’m always terrified the author will never write the next one).

All right, I’m done. Peace out, book hippies!
