*5 out of 5 Stars***** Read September 12th 2013. Available September 20th 2013
I don’t even know where to start, there is so much I want to say about this book, but it has yet to be released, so I’m going to try to stay away from any spoilers. This is what keeping in a fabulous story looks like:
Having been waiting so long for something new from Rebecca Ethington, I hungrily started this as soon as I got it. From the very first sentence I was hooked. Reading Rebecca’s work is like being wrapped in a comfort blanket by how well she can tell a story.
This story however had me on a monumental ride of twists, turns, despair, hope and love. It gave more shocks than a 2500 volt of electricity. The story centers on Alexis and Cohen, they grew up living next door to each other and were just about to allow themselves to open up more to each other.
Then the sky went black!
Trapped, alone in her home she has to find a way to survive the imminent death that can come for her if she breaks the rules. Her only sanity is the communication she has with Cohen, and that is through glass. Ahhhhh Cohen.
The story uniquely unfolds with a perfect blend of love (yes I said love), anxiety, sadness, hope and fear. I was gripped!! One simple action destroys everything and then holy Momma, everything I thought was going to happen DIDN’T! WOWZER, I was “Whaaaaat just happened?”
So we had a frozen pizza for dinner and I missed Big Brother (No joke, everything stops for Big Brother) Not this time. I couldn’t put this down, the ride will have you upside yourself with the twists, the plot is ever-changing into a much bigger story than you can ever imagine. I think I had 50 plus heart attacks.
What I loved the most about this book is the strong female character Alexis, she has all what you need in a heroine. She’s feisty, strong and even when she s broken she will not back down.
This is an amazing book, it has everything you could need. Through Glass is a New Adult Dystopian novel with some sci-fi and the right amount of romance to leave you wanting more.
The ending!!!! Rebecca what have you done to me? The ending is so shockingly jaw dropping I have nothing, I wanted to go and lie down in a darkened room to process it all….but couldn’t. I have to stay in the light.
If you buy nothing else this year, this is one of my must reads. You will not be sorry.
