Editorial Reviews


"Brilliantly written! This epic love story had me turning pages late into the night. Truly one of the best books I've read in a very very long time." ~SARRA CANNON, author of the Peachville High Demon series

This book is now my number one favorite of any book I've read in at least the past three or more years
...I can't remember the last time I read a book so slow, just so I could cherish every chapter." ~KELA at Teardrops On My Book

"I did not want to put the book down. Hooper weaves a very refreshing tale putting a new spin on the classic star crossed love story. I'd recommend this to anyone who loves a really beautiful love story and wants to hear it told from a new perspective.
" ~JENNIFER at Once Upon a Twilight

"Karen Amanda Hooper continues to astound me with her incredible gift of storytelling. Her style of writing is by far one of my most favorites. She has this amazing ability to draw out such emotion from her characters it literally drips off the page."
~ JEN at Making the Grade

"A new twist on the idea of reincarnation and the process.
Hooper has proven herself as one of the best young adult authors currently in the field." ~JESSICA at A Midsummer Night's Read

"Grasping at Eternity is a beautiful book about the power of love and family. Hooper is definitely an author to look out for as her original plots and believable characters make all her books that of a five star standard." ~LAURA CARTER for Readers Favorite

From the Author

It took me almost four years to get Grasping at Eternity to a place where I felt it was ready to share with the world. I hope readers love the kindrily characters even half as much as I do. I have put my heart and soul into this book. I will continue to put that much passion into the rest of the series. They have lifetimes of stories to be told. And I'm more than happy to tell them.

I haven't been this wow'd with a book one of a series in a very long time! It had absolutely everything I look for in a book!

Everything about this world is unique and believable. The writing was very good, intriguing and entertaining. I was hooked within a few pages and didn't put it down until I was done. There was so much going on yet it all flowed and panned out nicely. I love the fact that we get introduced to many themes and I loved how they were tackled in such a way that it felt natural to have one go with the other.

There are reincarnated souls, kindred spirits, soul mates, special powers, sprinkled with determination, passion and love. Not once was I bored. It was truly an exciting read. There's plenty of action and plenty of clean romance. The romance was incredibly sweet, heartbreaking and painfully suspenseful.

I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a very unique story. You won't be able to put this book down and you definitely won't regret not doing so.

To tell the truth, I read all 3 of the books before I wrote this review. Not because I couldn't decide what to say but because I did not want to take the time to stop reading. I was drawn into the story line from the first. Each book takes you to that appropriate moment to take a breather or to step neatly back into the weave of Maryah and Nathaniel. Enjoy. I did.

WOW, this book is AWESOME!!! I read every single word. Every time I got to the end of a chapter I wanted to stop because I didn't want to get to the end. But then I had to keep going because I wanted to know what happened.

Want to know a little about the book? Hmmm, what can I say that won't give away too much?

Well, the MC is a seventeen year old named Maryah. There's some romance, some love, some sadness, some pain, and some trials. This isn't your 'typical' supernatural book. There aren't any vampires, shape-shifters/weres, demons, or angels. There aren't any plot holes and the concept is clear. The book is well written. The plot isn't rushed. Things start happening from the very beginning, but they happen gradually and at a perfect pace. There was no slow reading for me in this book.

I absolutely love this book and I highly recommend it. I CANNOT wait for the next book in the series (which is planned for 2013 :(

Karen Amanda Hooper's Grasping At Eternity is the story of Maryah who erased her memories of her previous lives before beginning her current life. Now Maryah is living with her new adoptive family and has no recollection of the past they share. She also doesn't remember Nathan, her soulmate.

I really enjoyed Grasping At Eternity and finished it rather quickly. I loved Hooper's other book, Tangled Tides, so I was really excited to read another book by her. I love the way that Hooper writes because once again her story quickly hooked me in. Maryah was a really interesting character that I found that I connected with very easily. I especially found that I related to her in many ways. She not only finds herself living with a new adoptive family, but she is discovering that there is so much more to them. I like that her reactions to all of it were honest and realistic.

Nathan is Maryah's soul mate and he still remembers all of their previous lives together. I liked that the chapters alternated between Maryah and Nathan. It not only helped move the plot along but it helped develop the characters more deeply.

There were so many side characters that I really enjoyed getting to know. I especially loved Carson, Harmony, and Faith and wanted to know even more about their characters.

The concept of reincarnation that Hooper incorporates into the book is really interesting and different from anything that I have read before. It was a bit confusing at first, but as the story progressed it became much easier to understand. I really enjoyed how this story unraveled and I found it to be paced well. The plot was exciting and filled with twists. I especially was not expecting that ending. I'm really looking forward to the second book now. Overall I thought that Grasping At Eternity was an excellent start to what will sure be a great series!

Another adventure out of the Regency period. Gasp, I know. Yep, this time my adventure is off to a new young adult book. Today's review is on Grasping at Eternity. I was amazed on how much I liked the story. I would call this book the essences of true love.

We have two main characters that have been together for many lifetimes. However, Maryah has no recollection of her previous lives with Nathaniel and the other kindrily. Nathaniel is coping with a broken heart and wondering why Maryah has erased her memories of their life together.

A sweet story of soulmates and everlasting love. As I said at the beginning I liked the story, I would even say love the story. Since this is the first book in the Kindrily series, I'm so excited to see more books to come out. However, I need to learn patience, because I have to wait. I hope that you will go check out this book, because it was such a wonderful read.

NetGalley free read

I really like the concept of the book. I'm even interested in reading where this goes. But I had serious issues with the book. Firstly, there were too many characters thrown at me in the beginning of the book. So many that I'm still not sure who everyone is or what they all mean to each other. Example, I think Dakota is Faith and Harmony's brother, but I'm not quite sure what he means to the story other than being a friend of Carson's But how are Harmony and Faith in the picture as friends to the family? Are they supposed to be friends of Nathan's who know about Maryah? Also the older characters, I was confused about. Everyone but Sheila.

Secondly, I get that Maryah was supposed to be an erased then a new soul, but the author didn't have to make her so gullible. I mean, River is all over her trying to be her boyfriend, when she's saying in every way, lets be friends. He dumps April, while she's caring for her sick mother. He's a real peach...NOT! How could she be friends with this guy? I get she needed someone to be a friend to her outside of the Luna's, but come on. He's not the only person she could have met in that school. He was self-involved, narcissistic and crazy. The author kept telling us that she doesn't think she's pretty or special. Basically she has a low opinion of herself, but to be so low on yourself that you think you can only be friends with a guy like River, is nuts.

Thirdly, Nathan. Now I get that he wanted Maryah to remember him and their lives together, and the fact that he's been without his soulmate for most of his life has been hard. But, to not understand the fact that she'd just lost her parents and was emotionally fragil is crazy.
