Sitting on the edge of my seat

From the beginning, the author paints a picture with prose that ensnares all of our senses.

Stitiching together the layers of the protagonist's necessity to move, an unknown box, and the lives of her family the author creates a world that the reader is easily swept up into.

We are all placed on a rollercoaster ride, inching up a steep incline, gaining information and developing all the characters while still yearning for the answers to the most prominent question, "what's in the box." Boy, let me tell you, once you get the answer, hang on tight. You will find yourself falling over the precipice with the actions that follow.

I found myself chomping at the bit with the end of each chapter and could not press "Next Chapter" fast enough.

The author's writing style flows effortlessly from paragraph to paragraph. A few grammatical errors can be found here and there, but nothing drastic.

I cannot wait to see how this finally unfolds. Keep up the excellent work.

New Fangirl

The author effortlessly weaves the past with the present as we dive into the life of Alex Tredinneck. As you progress from chapter to chapter, you are given insight as to the workings of the protagonist's mind as he comes to terms with his life and feelings and how his decisions are affecting himself and those around him. The author does well to create a multifaceted character who is fiercely loyal, but flawed. The other characters Alex interacts with have their own host of idiosyncrasies that help highlight his nature. They feel like real, believable people, not just fictional characters.

Even though there are a few grammatical missteps throughout the story, it is nothing that pulls away from the content. A simple fine-tooth comb sweep for editing purposes will just further buff up this gem of a story.

I have only read up to chapter 14 at this point, but I plan to continue through until the end. I need to know how the different kinks in Alex's life will play out in the end.

Grips you and won't let you go

The author takes you on a journey as her teenaged protagonist strives to just live her life while a multitude of forces from the past are intermingling with the present. As each chapter unfolds you are thrust into another level of intrigue which leads you to wonder what will happen next in the parallel lives of June and Alexander.

It is almost impossible to not click "Next Chapter" as you come to the end of each chapter.

The author's examination of friendship and the different ways we see/interact with our friends is evident in the main trio's lives, Alexander and Scott, and how Alexander regards Catherina.

Yes, there are a few grammatical errors here and there, but nothing an editing passover can't clear up.

Cannot wait to see how this story continues.

Add to your List, the Anxiety is Worth It!

From the start, Unspoken Love draws you in to a land of intirgue, danger, and intensity that consumes your senses through the author's descriptive narrative. Your own heart gets tossed around as the main characters flit from one scenario to the next. Make sure you are keen to the subtle details that will help you survive from chapter to chapter.

Although there are some technical issues concerning grammar and punctuation, do not let that detract from the author's ability to create a world you don't want to escape from. I'm only half-way through the book at this point, but I cannot wait to reach the finish line with the author.

Cannot wait to see how all of this ends!
