This books sounds awesome! I like that the characters are fleshed out enough that it is easy to tell them apart as they have their own unique voice. Thanks for the review.

I love a good conspiracy theory. The knights templar are one of the coolest topics to look into. Books that feature long kept secrets and mysteries always have insane and unexpected journeys.

Very true. This one fits that bill. Let me know if you decide to read it.

This review makes this book seem really good and something that I would read. I had already added it to my “want to read” shelf, but I may need to start this book sooner rather than later. I don’t typically read books that deal with aliens but I do enjoy supernatural powers. Thanks for this review!

I don't think the alien element is too far out there, so you'll probably still enjoy this one. I hope you do, anyway! Thanks.

One of the many good things about life is that there would always be a room for something new each day. What could seem as totally outlandish to one could be the stark reality for another. An open mind would have been a game-changer for Lanie, just as it would for anyone in a quandary. Thank you for your insightful review.

Alien books don't usually appeal to me, but it seems like this book focuses more on the humans and their issues. The intrigue and mystery make me want to read it. Thanks for your review!

Well! Well! Well! The title matches the synopsis of this read. I'm very much fascinated to know about the fates of these 3 characters. Thank you for your review! Delightful!

Latest Review: "The Bonding" by Imogen Keeper

Post by animatedwolf3432 » 14 Oct 2018, 09:04

This book sounds really good, and actually like something my mom would enjoy reading. She's into aliens and government conspiracies. Cliffhanger endings can be brutal, but now it won't be so hard to deal with, thanks to your warning! I appreciate detailed scenes, so it's nice to know they're detailed. Thanks for your review!
