Book 1 of Otherworld Trilogy
"At least I had my pepper spray, though I wasn't so sure pepper spray would work against a hallucination."
Meghan has been strange all her life, starting from being found as a toddler wandering naked on the streets of L.A. Her adoptive parents have always been supportive and eventually she learned to hide her strange visions and the voices she hears. But when the voices escalate to seeing actual fantastical creatures, things change. They change even more when she runs into Cade, a man who seems to know about her past. And more importantly, he isn't scared off by her strangeness. But with the handsome stranger come new questions and possibly dangers she never could have expected.
My Opinion: This was a brief story that catches your attention though leaves you wishing for more. A short story with a lot of information to pass on, I felt that it spent too much time on the background and not enough on the story or character development. There was a lot of interesting mythology in this story with deep involvement and a few twists. Meghan is a realistic teenager, though a shy and not completely explained. Cade is a wonderfully dark and mysterious hero, though sometimes I felt he was too mysterious. Something that will probably be solved in the next book. Their romance is implied and lightly touched, but not really shown or detailed. It was sweet though. A short and quick story that left you hanging and waiting for the section of the story.
