It was an interesting story and the characters were good.

I am a little more than half way through the book and have really enjoyed reading Wander Dust.

The love story is cute and the bad guys are really scary and really disgusting too.

Wander Dust is, in a nutshell, the love child of Jumper and Harry Potter.

This alone should make you dump everything you're reading and make you trigger-happy with your Amazon account. Well, aside from making you swoon just by thinking about Hayden Christensen... but I digress.

This is what I needed to lift me out of my reading slump!
I am in awe of Warren's fertile imagination, her plotting skills and her vivid descriptions. This is an author you definitely want to keep an eye on and I promise her book is certainly worth reading. And it's self-published! This must be the year of the Self-Pubbed Revolution!

The story starts with Seraphina celebrating her 16th birthday, in a restaurant, with her dad and his girlfriend. That's also when strange things start happening to her: candles igniting by themselves even underwater and a dark, dangerous looking lady trying to fry her brain just by looking at her.
When she receives the picture of a handsome guy in the mail and she discovers him stalking her at school, she just knows something's off.
After the umpteenth grounding by her father and a near-breakdown due to what she thinks are hallucinations, her father decides to send her to live with her aunt in Chicago and that's when she begins discovering the truth. Sera can time travel. When she starts attending the prestigious Academy, she learns she is a Wanderer, one-third of a team of time travelers, together with a Protector and a Seer. But when she realizes that her time traveling abilities might just lead her to her dead mother and help her change the past, trouble is sure to come her way.

Wander Dust is an ambitious book.

Review can also be found on (...) and Goodreads

Wander Dust is the story of Seraphina who, having lost her mother at an early age, lives with her emotionally defective father and has spent her life moving from place to place. However, following a move to Miami Beach and her sixteenth birthday, Sera experiences several bizarre occurrences and her father, putting it down to bad behaviour, sends her to Chicago to live with her Aunt.
Whilst in Chicago strange things continue to happen and she meets 'British Stalker Boy' who encourages Sera to unlock her special power, which start her on a path to a new life . . . . .
I have read a review on Goodreads by "Lisa O" which described this book as the "lovechild of Jumper and Harry Potter" which I believe is a very apt analogy - it is certainly very apparent where Michelle Warren draws some of her inspiration from.
At times I found this story absorbing and so full of description I thought my head might burst, yet I also admit to being a little confused at times by the plot, particularly when Sera's sole focus changes and the characters become slightly disjointed and the plot overwhelming.
Sera is an engaging character, who is able to handle the change that her special powers bring her and she retains her morality and modesty.
I really liked the character of Sam, who seemed spoilt and untrustworthy to begin with, yet proved to be so much more.
However, Max had me puzzled at the start of the story and I still remain unconvinced by him now.
Overall, I felt that Wander Dust is an interesting novel with an entertaining mix of characters, suspense and imagery and although it failed to reach my expectations I would recommend it to all fans of YA paranormal/magical fiction and I will be putting Protecting Truth on my 'To be Read' list.

I received a copy of Wander Dust in exchange for an honest review and I wanted to love it, I really did. Unfortunately, it simply had too many issues for me, and I hit the 50% mark and realised I was forcing myself to read on. Well, as I read for relaxation and pleasure, I decided it might be better if I stopped. So this one is a DNF for me.

Why?

Well, whilst I didn't dislike Sera at all as an MC, I did find her back and forth musings to be pretty contradictory at times, which made her appear fairly unreliable as narrator, and I felt as though I wasn't really given the goods required for me to connect to her.

I also had a hard time connecting with any of the secondary characters. I'm not sure how much of this was to do with the amount of `tell' in the book overshadowing any `show' that occurred.

On top of this, there was instance on top of instance of POV breaches. With pretty much every side character, the MC `tells' the reader of their motivations/reasons for actions/behaviour when she can't possibly know this information. Whenever an MC decides the reasoning behind another characters behaviour/actions, this becomes an assumption and should be treated as such, and there needs to be a clear indication as to why the assumption is made. But there was none of this. The entire 50% of the book I read is full of the MC explaining why every other character is doing what they're doing.

Then we have the very first `wormhole' incidence. The MC is dragged through a wormhole, without ever knowing that she has this ability, or without ever having travelled a wormhole before, yet she decides straight away that she is in a wormhole. Where was the terror and utter confusion she should have been feeling at this situation.
