When We Wake is a suspenseful novel. If you like dystopian fiction, then you will probably like this. I thought it was a pretty good book. I would give it a 7 out of 10.

The Gathering Dark was quite a page turner! Author does an amazing job of combining teen fiction, romance, and fantasy into one novel of interesting events.
The story focuses on Keira as she discovers a world outside of her piano. For the past thirteen years, Keira has sought out solace in her music, especially after the death of her uncle, her parents fighting, and of course, after the appearance of her startling visions. During the most difficult time of her life she meets Walker, the one person who she feels she can talk to and who really understands her. But as she draws closer to Walker, she begins to realize that he - and her visions - aren't what she thought they were.
My eyes have been opened to a new genre by reading The Gathering Dark. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to try out the fantasy genre, and I give two thumbs for writing such a great book!

Etiquette and Espionage was quite an interesting read! Written by , this book is full of excitement. The main character, fourteen-year-old Sophronia is a girl waiting for adventure!

This book really spiked my interest. I found it very exciting and I always wanted to see what Sophronia's next crazy scheme would be. If you want to try something new, I would highly recommend this book. And this is only the first book of the series!
