“A fantastic Sci-Fi read with a twist of spirituality and fantasy”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Nicole L Walker
This was a fantastic sci-fi read with a twist of spirituality and fantasy. The protaganist, Emily Diaz wakes up from a dream that had been filled with screams, crying and confusion. She woke up in her dorm room, but looking around she feels something is off. The story moved forward quickly with a stunning amount of twist and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat.
Without giving anything away, Emily has always felt she did not belong in this world and when she wakes up in her dorm room that day and begins her journey of awareness the author creates a world of mystery and a storyline where you cannot wait to find out what happens next. The details are engaging and the development of characters makes you feel like you are part of their story.
It is an exciting thrill and I highly recommend this book!
