I didn't know what to expect... The book far exceeded my expectations from the blurb, which is saying a lot as I read the blurb and started the book 5 minutes later ;)
We start with Samantha, in an unknown cabin with a strange guy drugging her. From the first page the mystery of who her captive was starts and you are kept guessing (about this and much more) till the very end of the book. This is something I much appreciate in a book as I am the sort of person who guesses correctly (most of the time) of what will happen in a book.
The story then takes us on a rollercoaster full of suspense, romance, mystery and the discovery of an interesting new species; part human, part dragonfly! This is not your average supernatural/fantasy book; where if you have read some you have read most of them. This book puts an interesting spin on our favorite fantasy creatures.
I won tell you about the other characters or more about the plot because that would mean depriving you of discovering it yourself, gradually, which was one of my favorite things about this book. I am much anticipating book 2 and I can't wait to see how Amanda continues the plot :) Happy reading everyone!!
It was AWESOME, EXHILARATING!!!!!!!!!!! I’m speechless. Wow! The whole story line sucked me in. Author kept me on edge and kept me guessing who ‘Hidden Monster’ was. With every step of further reading my guess kept switching to different characters.
The start was ordinary being abducted by a masked kidnapper but author Amanda Strong made the whole story extraordinary. I would have never guessed what it was about in millions of years. I should've learned not to expect what I’m going to read by reading the author’s other story, but now I know not to expect anything. She threw curveballs and captivated me with the whole suspense and mysteries.
I couldn’t stop wanting to read in one sitting late night until my mom scolded me. Next morning I couldn’t stop myself to start reading it first waking up.
It is definitely a must read. You are on one hell of a ride. I so so so want to read what will happen next in the story.
About the Author
Born in Dekalb, Illinois, Amanda Strong has called Utah, Arizona, Hawaii, Virginia and now New Mexico home. Amanda has been spinning tales since she was a child. Her family still remembers finding young Amanda with her bright pink glasses, hiding in random corners of the house while scribbling away in one of her many spiral-bound notebooks. You could say that some things never change since Amanda is still writing today. Amanda began her writing career when she uploaded The Awakener, her first full-length novel, on Wattpad where it received over 430,000 reads in four weeks. She was blown away and humbled by the reader support and feedback she received. Because of The Awakener's success as a non-published book, she was asked to talk on 1400 KSTAR about her story.
