Son who she can turn to is a transparent boy in a lab coat named uint Unsure whether he’s a hallucination or a ghost Camryn has no choice but to trust him as they become embroiled in a plot that is bigger The first half of this book was so good I honestly thought I'm gonna love it it had All Our Yesterdays vibes because of the sci fi mystery concept and it was really good But then it just got messy suddenly there was some unnecessary romance the sci fi bit was made to sound complicated and I really didn't understand it but not because I don't get it it's because it wasn't scientifically explained there was no evidence to support the theory The author literally just said here they created this thing and it does something but there's no 1 how this was created 2 how can this thing do this since it's hard to believe such a thing is even possible 3 why would anyone even do that? It felt rushed and unfinished The whole concept with the view spoiler turning people's soul into usable energy made no sense Especially when you add that they managed to use that energy to create wormholes and travel through parallel dimensions which they couldn't do before but somehow this specific energy can do just that hide spoiler

AfterimageA horrific explosion levels part of the city and Camryn Kingfisher is the sole survivorAmidst controversy conspiracy theories and threats from government officials Camryn longs for the truth But the only per THIS BOOK I was obsessed with this book from about 10 pages in The story is thrilling and there may in fact be a new twist in every single chapter Our main character Camryn deeply loves her mom dad and brother Kyle She deals with true Panic Disorder and works so hard for that not to run her entire life uint is a mysterious guest that Camryn finds herself tied to after a huge explosion causes the death of Camryn's mom along with thousands of other people Camryn deals with guilt grief anxiety and panic attacks in this absolute adventure thriller I'm still having trouble forming coherent thoughts around this novel so I'll do it this way Here are a few things I loved about this storycharactersconcept Hughes describes grief in SUCH an authentic way The guilt the remorse the 'what ifs'they all resonated deeply with me I won't say much on this but the romance developed through the storm these characters fight through is lovely The Panic Disorder WOW Again it is so realistic Readers who have suffered through this will immediately identify and be inspired Hughes didn't write a character who somehow miraculously overcomes her Panic Disorder to save the day at the end She created a character who bites and claws and fights her way through the panic that gnaws on her at every moment She wrote a character who gives hope to those who also face this challenge Camryn and Kyle's relationship So I'm a sucker for a sibling relationship 100% of the time This one is rocky with the highest of highs and some pretty intense lows It's beautiful There IS a science fiction element to this story Sci Fi is absolutely not my cup of tea and Hughes still brought me along throughout the entire novel Even a complete novice to the genre can access this story without feeling lost Did I mention there's a twist every time you turn a page?? Maybe not uite that freuently but this story kept me on my toes the entire time THE ENDING Go ahead Try to predict how she will end this novel You will be wrong The ending is perfect than anything I could have hoped for It'splease just read this book The imperfections are so perfect Every single character is so complex and deep and well developed I loved that even the characters I was meant to fall for weren't perfect OH And nobody escapes this story without significant scarring Again the imperfections in each character just make this story so authentic and relatable In short BUY this book READ this book SHARE this book I've never read anything like it I devoured it in about 4 hours My library WILL hold multiple copies of this special new author Alright Naomi When's the next book coming out???
