What a kind of story of Life, I pity her with the kind of family she find herself being a caretaker at a young age and then allowing a common heartbreak affect her instead to move on with her life and forget everything that have ever come between them

Many things seem to go wrong In Piper's life but all of a sudden a streak of hope of possessing a supernatural ability manifests. I'm curious to find out the cause of Piper's sudden change. Thank you for this wonderful review!

To me, the sound of a teenage girl suddenly finding she has hidden powers is a cliched premise for a fantasy novel. Also I feel that the book should come with a trigger warning for those who have a phobia of birth scenes - there is one straight off the bat as soon as you get into chapter one, which is not a nice surprise for some.

The review has shown quite a sneak-peek into what is going on in the book. I would like to read and see what happens in Piper's New World. Congrats to the book of the day.

An Okayish fantasy novel, that isn't particularly well written doesn't sound like its for me, but thanks for the review.

This action/adventure story is a refreshing read in that leans more on love and personal relationships, than the violence so prominent in story telling today.
