ExpectationsFirst of all, read the synopsis and tell me you're not at least a bit curious..
Have you ever wondered where fairytales go once they’re created?
It’s been eight years since Story Sparks last had a dream. Now they’re back, tormenting her as nightmares she can’t remember upon waking. The black waters of Lake Sandeen, where her Uncle Peter disappeared decades before, may hold the secret to Story’s hidden memories, or a truth she’d rather not know. On a bright summer afternoon, Story and her two best friends, Elliott and Adam, take a hike to the lake, where they dive into the cool water and never reemerge.
What they find is beyond anything they’ve ever imagined could be possible, a world where dangers lurk in the form of Big Bad Wolves, living Nightmares and meddlesome witches and gods.
Now Story must remember who she really is and somehow stop two worlds from ultimate annihilation, all while trying not to be too distracted by the inexplicable pull she feels toward a certain dark-eyed traveler who seems to have secrets of his own. The fates of the worlds are counting on her.
Amazing synopsis right? When I read this I was so excited to be reading this debut novel by author K.M. Randall. This is my first ARC review, but that will not influence my review. I will give you my honest opinion.
ReviewThroughout this story the writing is consistent and was beautiful. The story is written from the multiple characters, which was very fun to read. I also gained more prospective and insight in the side characters in stead of just the main character. New characters were gradually introduced so I could keep up with who was who ;)
The prologue was intriguing and immediately made think about the possibilities with this story. I always love it when a writer get's you thinking like that.
The main character Story suffers from memory loss, which caused me to try to discover with her what the secrets are she had forgotten all about. Story is searching to find herself again. She doesn't really know what's she's searching. She just knows something is missing.
I love the difference between the two best friends Adam and Elliott. They are both great characters within this story.
The part near the water was very thrilling and fast-paced. Something was in that lake... The sens of mystery keeps coming back within the story, which is very appealing to read more.
I've always loved fairytales and I think the author did a grreat job integrating the stories we all know and giving them a different and unique twist. I loved all the fantasy elements !
I really liked pretty much every character in this book. Which rarely happens..
I think I could go on and on about the different great things in this book but the truth is, I loved it! I think it's amazing that the author writes a book like this as a first novel!
A great debut novel written beautifully full of fantasy elements and creatures and great characters.
I wanna thank Wendy Logsdon for giving me the opportunity to read this ARC and for providing the e-book for this giveaway!
