I'm sure I won't be the first to say so, I'd very much like to read more about Kaylen's journey! Call me hooked. :) I will definitely be keeping an eye out for any more books that continue her story.
In this book, the POV is from Peter Holbrook the town Nowhere, Kansas, Sheriff. Peter has lived in Nowhere since 2nd grade. He has known most of the townsfolks from there as long as he has been there.
Peter finds out there was a wreck on the outskirts of the town, and a young woman was taken to the town's clinic. Once Peter gets there and see's her, he knows her from somewhere but, just can't place her from anywhere. The mystery woman, Kaylen, is cover from head to toe in tattoo's. Not just random tattoo's, but, symbols, like they mean something. Once she wakes up, they realize that she has amnesia. She does remember her name though. But, that's about the only thing. She gets visions of what she thinks are dreams, but, they are actually her memory coming back, although they are scattered memories not making any sense to her.
The town is encompassed in a 'gray' which is heavy fog, rain that covers the entire county for days in rain. However, there are also beautiful butterflies that have shown up. Peter see's them first when he finds Kaylen's car after it was wrecked. He's not sure if the butterfly's are good omen's or bad omens that have come to plague the town.
What is going on in the 'gray' over this town? Is it UFO / Aliens causing havoc? Or is it demon's and witches? Peter needs to find out what / who Kaylen is and what her tattoo's mean if anything. Will Kaylen get her memory back? Will she help him with finding out the truth if she can remember?
I received an ARC at no cost from the Author.
Chrysalis is set in Nowhere, Kansas. Being a Midwestern gal myself, and with her amazing abilities to put you in the scene, I could absolutely picture the setting. I love when a book does that - brings the movie to life in my mind. The same goes for "the gray".
As always with this author, the characters are perfectly flawed. She brings them off the pages and completely to life. Peter is a particularly great example in this book for me. Hannah and Kaylen both drew me in, in completely opposite ways. The romance reader in me is still wondering how I could like both so completely. This is a good thing.
I always find thrillers a bit hard to review because part of me is dying to discuss details but the reviewer in me refuses to give spoilers, so I guess you'll have to settle for me saying this is an absolute must read and definitely in the running for my best of 2018 list. I have read at least 10 books since I received this ARC, but my mind is still stuck in Nowhere. And I can't say that I want to leave.
The story follows Sheriff Peter Holbrook as he tries to save himself and his town from what's hiding in "The Gray". I spent the first part of this book trying to figure out what was happening to the people of Nowhere, but when I finally realized what was invading this small town I was even more intrigued by the story.
This is one book lovers of paranormal will not want to miss out on. I could read it again and again and again...
I RECEIVED A COPY OF THIS BOOK AT NO EXPENSE TO THE AUTHOR.
