Review

Praise for DRAWN:

"A lushly romantic ghost story...captivating and haunting. I didn't want it to end." --Cyn Balog, author of paranormal YA novels Fairy Tale, Sleepless, and Starstruck

"...a wonderfully spooky tale of romance and discovery. It's a magical exploration of the unconquerable power of love. Highly recommended!" --Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Rot & Ruin and Dust & Decay


"In DRAWN, Marie Lamba deftly entwines romance and mystery, past and present, into a page-turning adventure. Buy it today and I promise you'll be finished reading far too quickly!" --Joy Nash USA Today bestselling paranormal romance author of The Immortals series, The Grail King and The Unforgiven

A fun, historical time travel full of creativity, beautiful scenes, and an engrossing mystery...I fell in love with the entire story...I haven't read too many time travel books and none that had such pure romance and a true mystery element to it...Their romance was very beautiful and endearing. I didn't want to see it end. 5 STARS --The Cozy Reader

"Mysterious and enchanting, DRAWN is a breath of fresh air. If you are looking for a page turner with a unique twist, then look no further." -- TwilightMOMS

Warning: Don't read DRAWN...until you have the time to finish it. You won't be able to put it down.
Michelle De Freccio is glad to be starting life over at Wallingford Academy in England where no one knows about her crazy family.
But from the time she arrives, she starts sketching pictures of an unknown young man clothed in garb from the Fifteenth Century.
When she is the only one to actually see the boy at a school costume party, she begins to fear that she is either psychic like her estranged mother
or psychotic like her hospitalized brother. Then a visit to a nearby castle catapults her back in history where she meets the boy of her sketches, Christopher.
As she falls for him, she begins to wonder if he was the murderer modern history books claimed he was or if he was the Earl's loyal subject who was framed. As Michelle
bounces back and forth between the past and the present, she wonders if she could-or should- change history to save Christopher's life and reputation. And what can she and Christopher do about their impossible love that is too strong to deny?
Whether you are a fan of books about history, paranormal experience, time travel, romance, or teenage angst, DRAWN will be a satisfying read.

Format: Paperback
I love when a book's title works on many levels. Marie Lamba's DRAWN does just that. Her protagonist, Michelle De Freccio, is a teenage artist who loves to draw. Characters are drawn together by romance, friendship, and hate. Michelle and her friends are drawn into a mystery. And the reader is drawn into this book, and it never lets go.

Lamba's writing is flowing and easy--nothing to trip the reader up and break the spell of the novel. The book starts quickly and speeds up from there. I found myself saying, "Just one more chapter." every time I reached a chapter break.

Michelle, Christopher, Roger, William and all the minor characters are well-drawn (no pun intended) as well. It is not uncommon in novels for a group of kids the same age to act and sound the same, but Lamba avoids that trap. She is able to use class differences and the accompanying differences in speech to delineate the characters, but she also gives each one a personality of their own. What's more, not a single character is one-dimensional--each one has flaws, strengths, and depths to them. Even the snotty "Queen Bee" girl, Constance, who could easily have been a stereotype, has flashes of a soul at war with the front she puts up.

Lamba also does a wonderful job evoking the atmosphere of the castle, which is almost as much of a character as the people. Haunting and haunted, housing both the grand and grotesque, Blanchley Castle entrances Michelle as well as the reader. The past and present entwine seamlessly within its walls, and what is "real" depends on what side of the temporal divide you are standing on. Lamba's own experiences in England, and with fine arts, clearly shine through in the detail and solidity found throughout the book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book; such a surprise to me because I rarely read paranormal... but I read the sample chapter and was absolutely hooked. A tight suspenseful story full of intrigue, time travel, ghosts, beautiful and dramatic setting -- all intertwined with engaging characters. Incredibly romantic and timeless love story, but at the same time addressing serious issues facing teens (and all). A perfect book for the hopeless idealistic romantic in me.

Format: Paperback
I was drawn (pun intended) into this book from the first page and couldn't put it down. I love Michelle. She's both a typical teen and uniquely herself--talented and liked, but not popular. She's pretty without being gorgeous. In a word, she's real. Her worries about making friends and fitting in felt honest without being too angsty. She deals with the strange things that happen to her in a believable way.

When Michelle is drawn into the past it naturally makes her question her sanity. I liked how her mother's wackiness and her brother's disease add depth to her worries and to her father's, making what someone else might pass off as vivid dreams into something truly disconcerting. The setting is wonderful and highlights the changes from past to present and back in an organic way that make the transitions seem effortless. This story is so deftly created that I was in each setting and could easily "see" Michelle's art without illustrations.

I enjoyed how Ms. Lamba seamlessly inserts "Back to the Future" references. They compliment Roger's character, fit the plot, and help explain how changing the past can change the present. They clarify things for Michelle and force her think about what she's doing and realize by simply being in the past she changes the present. In the midst of her growing affection for Christopher, she has to weigh the risks and possible consequences of her actions to decide what action, if any, to take.

I loved how the book ended. It wasn't what I thought it would be and different than Michelle thought it would as well, but it felt right and was very satisfying. I recommend Drawn to tweens, teens and above. It has the perfect amount of romance, and enough action and suspense to keep the most distracted reader turning the pages.
