Enter into a world of betrayal, loss, and love.
University graduate Rosie is from Earth. At least she’s never had cause to question that before now. After a car accident and an oddly familiar stranger turn her world upside down, she is forced to question everything she thought she once knew. Thrust into a world of betrayal, loss, and love. Rosie faces an impossible choice between the two worlds she’s grown to love, or risk losing everything she’s ever cared about. All while an impending war is on the horizon.
Rosie has the perfect life on earth with a doting and supportive family and the perfect boyfriend called Greyson. Unfortunately after a terrible car accident her world comes crumbling down when she discovers her human existence is completely falsified and she has in fact led an alternative life in a different world. Instantly drawn in, I liked the whole premise of the story and it is well crafted and compelling. It is packed with interesting and diverse characters, I enjoyed getting to know each of them and you will definitely find a favourite. Kai certainly spiced up the story with his villainous ways and added extra drama and suspense to the storyline. The magic system is fascinating and I liked the fact that each character had their own unique special powers. In particular I enjoyed the ‘projections’ that Rosie could produce transporting us to different worlds and countries.
There is a love-triangle romance which comes about due to Rosie’s two separate lives and as such she has found herself with two men she cares for in her life, however this awkward situation is carefully and subtly resolved by the author. I was quite fond of Caleb and Libby, they were such a lovely couple and I enjoyed following their relationship too.
It is a fast-paced novel and there is plenty of action going on. The impending violent war brewing between two worlds adds to the suspense to the plot and the storyline built up nicely to a dramatic and exciting conclusion.
A delightful novel which is engaging and easy to follow. It is perfect for a teenage audience who love a bit of angst, romance and excitement in their stories, although as an adult reader I found it entertaining and fun to read too. A great debut novel by the author, which has so much more potential and room to grow and I’m looking forward to seeing were the next instalment takes us. I’d certainly love to see more of Atheria, the world Rosie originates from. The beautiful cover definitely deserves a mention, as well as the fabulous chapter art.
