Ephemeral by Addison Moore *GUEST REVIEW*



Guest Review by Mercedes

Book blurb:
The last thing Laken Stewart remembers is the oncoming car, then bursting through the windshield.
 
Two months dissolve without her knowledge and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings with strangers who not only profess to know her but insist she’s someone else entirely. 
Laken discovers her long dead boyfriend, Wesley, has been thrown into this alternate world as well. He is quick to inform her she suffered a horrible fall and that her memory hasn’t fully returned. According to Wesley the other life she had—her name, her family, they were simply a side effect of her brain trauma. 
In her quest for answers she meets Cooper Flanders, the son of her psychiatrist who readily believes every word she says. 
Laken Stewart knows she died on that hot July afternoon, but now she’s alive—or is she?

My take:
I’ve been stalking Addison and her books since I read “Ethereal” from the Celestra Series. After reading every single book in that series, I was thrilled and really intrigued to know what Addison had coming next for her readers.
“In the grand scheme of things, you’ll be dead a lot longer than you’ll ever be alive.” That’s the first sentence in chapter 1 and, also, a great example of Addison’s addicting writing. It flows from sentence to sentence getting you more and more involved with the story. Addison has the ability to hook you from the very beginning till you read “The End”.

The overwhelming mystery that surrounds Laken is
absorbing. Everything from each character to the setting is incredibly unique and detailed. I felt I was living every moment next to her, rooting for her and guessing, unsuccessfully, what was coming next.

There are so many different types of paranormal characters-
zombies, supernatural creatures, angels- who make the story more appealing by the sentence. I’d define the story as a mix of romance, thrilling action and a fast-paced plot that will keep you up till the early hours of the morning and have your toes curling constantly.

Customarily to Addison’s books; this story is full of twists, secrets and
appetizingly steamy romance. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone who loves an action-packed and singly fantastic but still romantic story.
There aren’t enough stars I can give to this book, but since I like numbers, I’ll give 5 big fat stars to Ms. Moore creation.
