With parallel storylines, intertwined familial links, and two very separate styles of life, you quickly get caught up in the lives of the characters. It's good to sometimes be thrown off the scent, to have your faith in a character be tossed about like luggage on a turbulent plane. Don't count on trusting anyone in this story, until you get to the end!!
I really enjoyed this book, and the story, and the twists and turns.
The author combines reality with science fiction in this story of a young girl choosing her own destiny despite the efforts of her elders, some selfish and some for what they consider her benefit. Although the characters are convincing and well-developed, the storyline gets bogged down with repetition, exposition, and melodrama. The reader doesn't need a whole paragraph that includes the line: "He no longer tried to stop the stream of feelings and let them flow from his body, finally releasing him from the prison in which he had been trapped" to say that he sobbed for joy.
J. Meverington's narration refers many times to the story's alternate world as "weird" and its people weirdos, but I think the idea is beautiful and hope to see other stories about it.
Terri wakes up with no idea of who she is or where she is. She doesn’t even recognize herself in the mirror. That is shocking and frustrating for her. She is supposedly married to an older man, named Martin. While we witness Terri’s struggles, escaping from her husband, meeting Damion, the helper, we may think that that we get closer to an end. But no. The author intelligently takes us to the most intriguing part of the story-line, the Secret Community. For the first part of the book, I had the opinion that I was reading two stories and I was waiting for the moment to see them intertwined. And they did and it explained certain facts. There are lots of interesting events and turns that make you eager to read without a pause. A real page-turner with an interesting idea.
What is The Secret Community? I let you discover for yourself. I enjoyed the writing style of this author, relaxed and cozy and I shall look forward to the other books from this series.
The story begins with the MC losing her memory and feeling frightened and confused as to what could have happened to cause this predicament. Pretty standard and seen a lot... but then the book creatively veers off into an unexpected direction, and what at first seems like two unrelated plot lines ends up weaving together to one of those "Oh SH*TTTT" moments in your head. Kudos to the author for pulling that off, and shame on me as a reader for frowning and underestimating exactly what was being set up through what at first seemed like the "slower" parts. Readers, hang in there if you struggle in the beginning, because it will all click into place! An enjoyable roller coaster, an interesting and creative spiderweb, I absolutely respect this author's unique, slightly unconventional but absolutely legit craft!
Bad guys and good guys do blur a little in the book and I was questioning what was going on a couple times? And what I knew....

I would recommend readers to persevere, the first section of the book begins alternating between what would seem to be two totally different storylines, this did make the first few chapters a little less absorbing than I would have hoped, though I did find myself trying to guess the link. Once the link is revealed it becomes clear why the author has kept us guessing.
Well written and put together, descriptive but not rambling, well worth five stars.
Engaging from the start. A very easy and enjoyable read. I would recommend this book if you wanted something a little different. A good concept that was executed well.
Well done to the author. Especially for the little nod to themselves towards the end, it made me chuckle.
I enjoyed this thought-provoking book – the possibility that this is already happening in our society isn’t as far-fetched as it would seem. The story keeps you guessing as events unravel and reaches a satisfying conclusion. I look forward to reading more from this author.
