What is Paranormal Perfection?
I love to read YA Paranormal stories (if you haven't figured that out yet, lol). Lucky for me, the ebook world seems to be jammed packed with fantastic, young adult, paranormal writers. My new goal for my blog is to feature a new and wonderful read by YA indie paranormal authors that I love each week. Some of these authors I have have never met, some I have had to pleasure to chat with on the internet and some I have had the pleasure to meet in person.
This week's selection of Paranormal Perfection is I Wish by Wren Emerson.
Wren Emerson is a phenominal writer and sweetheart of a gal. I feel quite fortunate to blog and write indie YA along side this extraordinary lady.
Synopsis for I Wish
All she ever wanted was a chance to settle down in one place.
Thistle Nettlebottom knows her life isn't exactly normal. She travels the country with her secretive mother and bestselling author grandmother in a pink RV going from book signings to crazy research trips. She's never been to public school or had a boyfriend, but she can pick a lock and hotwire a car. One day the phone rings and they set a course to a tiny town that's not on any maps. Suddenly, Thistle finds her whole life changing.
She's finally found the home she's been searching for.
Thistle soon realizes that Desire isn't like other towns and she's not like other girls. The family she trusted has lied to her about everything her entire life and the things she doesn't know about herself could cost her everything. Her legacy as one of the most powerful witches the town has ever seen has made her enemies that have been waiting patiently for a chance to destroy her. Thistle needs to learn to use her powers to protect herself before they succeed.
Be careful what you wish for.
Thistle has a power unique even among the magic wielding witches of Desire. She can wish things into existence. At first she enjoys the freedom of having everything her heart desires, but she soon realizes that her power comes at a terrible price. She's losing her grip on her sanity at a time when she can't afford any weakness. Her enemies are closing in quickly, but she might not have the strength to save herself.
Wren Emerson's I Wish is a unique and suspenseful tale of a girl with an equally bizarre life before she discovers she is a witch. I literally read this book in one day. The suspenseful plot, non - stop insanity of the characters and unfathomable events that transpired kept my eyes glued to my Kindle until I read the last line. I can't wait to learn what happens next.
If you're looking for something a with a new twist that is action packed and extremely tense (in a fidgety, finger nails embedded into your recliner cushion sort of way) you've got to grab this read!
I gave I Wish... 5 stars!
