“A good story that will pull you out of your world like fantasy should” – In Gray by Sara J. Bernhardt

Daisy Carmichael’s life is forever changed after a devastating car crash.

Nobody remembers the boy who pulled her from the wreckage, the boy who saved her life.

She believed she was crazy.

That is, until the dreams started.

Amazon reviewer

A good story that will pull you out of your world like fantasy should

Fantasy to me is about that moment you walk into someplace you may have once known, and discover something you never knew existed, and your mind begins to race with all the possibilities, and eventually impossibilities of the world just to try to rediscover that world beyond ours that is lost and sad and wonderful. In Gray begins with that classic kind of jarring experience, and leaves the reader with the certainty that more discovery is coming. An easy, but good story that will pull you in like fantasy should, but with characters that are normal and real. The story reminds me of Shadowhunters but the writing reminds me of James Patterson. My only negative was that maybe the reading level was so simple that it would be appealing to audiences a little too young, but that was only at first. I’ve watched more adult things with my two year old daughter on Netflix kids. And that’s saying something about Netflix Kids. Waiting for the next book.

I really enjoyed reading it!

It’s a very thrilling story and I loved how unexpected the ending was. A very well-written novel that I enjoyed reading a lot.
Rider and his father are attending the funeral of someone his father knew a long time ago. He doesn’t understand why his father has brought him here when he didn’t even know these people. Apparently the deceased was someone special to his father and now his father wants to help the family uncover secrets that are better forgotten.
Meri has just lost her mother. She is still in shock and grieving when she meets Rider. Suddenly, two youngsters are thrown together due to unexpected circumstances. It seems that Meri is in danger and for some reason Rider is appointed as her bodyguard. On the run, as they spend time together not only they learn more about their past but also pave a path to their future, a future that neither of them had anticipated.
It’s a fast-paced novel. I liked the flow of it and the characters too. I think that it is a very good start to a promising series. Also, it is a bonus that the book can be read as stand alone.

Great Read

The Binding was a good read by Samantha Jacobey. Merideth is the daughter of a wealthy politician. Her mother is murdered and she finds out that she is next. Rider is ex-military who is placed in charge of protecting Meri. Meri and Rider find her mother’s old book to find out who is after her and why. I enjoyed reading Meri and Rider’s story and can’t wait to read more by Samantha Jacobey.

(MA – 18+: contains violence, sexual content, and strong language)

Original, plenty of twists and turns.

Samantha Jacobey’s, The Wicked Awakened, is a perfect Halloween read.

Sarah and her childhood best friend, Karen, are off to college. Unlike Karen, Sarah is a dedicated student. Karen has other interests.

I loved the depiction of the two childhood friends and their relationship. I thought the author did an excellent job of portraying the complex ties that bonds friends and how it can mask competing impulses.

In high school, both girls shared an interest in witchcraft. Karen’s ties went deeper than Sarah knew.

Karen is involved with a dangerous coven, who are interested in recruiting Sarah.

Things go bump in the night, creative and original twists. Stories involving the occult. Some of the twists and turns, I didn’t see coming.

Who was after her and how did they seem only a half step behind them as the two flee?

The Binding kept me wondering. Merideth and Ryder meet at her mother’s funeral. She’s feeling guilty for not spending more time with her mother and the way their last visit ended. Ryder didn’t know her mother but his father did and was a close friend, or so he said. No one had ever seen them together and she hadn’t spoken of him. When the man and her own father agreed that her mother’s death may be foul play Ryder was assigned to protect her.

Who was after her and how did they seem only a half step behind them as the two flee?

There is an attraction between these two never-gonna-get-in-another-serious-relationship people. Neither wants to admit it even though they come close a few times.

While I did enjoy the book, I was unable to care about Merideth. Her better-than-you attitude was off-putting. Ryder was easier to like, however, with the mystery not allowing us to delve into their personalities too closely it wasn’t easy to be on their side. I did enjoy the story and if you are looking for an interesting mystery with a couple and little steam this will fit the bill.

Can she learn quickly enough to save her people from possible famine and death?For it will be her responsibility to carry the memories of all those who have passed from this life and to help protect and lead her people across the deadlands and snowy plains to a place they can safely spend the winter. But before she can accomplish that she must choose an apprentice from among the young girls and women, someone who can take her place should she fall.Will Mondoani’s youth and inexperience condemn the tribe to death or will she rise above it and with the help of the magical world choose correctly?

A TALE AS OLD AS TIME.

This is the tale of Mondoani, a young girl chosen to be the apprentice to the memory keeper named Old mother. The tribe is prehistoric in nature and the author describes their rituals and customs. Although this is a work of fiction, the writer paints a wonderful picture of the life of the tribe in the day to day struggles to survive. Throughout the story, we read about the spiritual beliefs and the customs for Mondoani to follow to choose her apprentices and trust in the spirits. It was a short yet enjoyable read. I would happily give this tale 5 stars for great storytelling. Thanks to Ms. Bishop for sharing The Choosing with her readers.
