There are three things Kori knows for sure about her life:
One: Her army general dad is insanely overprotective.
Two: The guy he sent to watch her, Cade, is way too good-looking.
Three: Everything she knew was a lie.
Now there are three things Kori never knew about her life:
One: There’s a device that allows her to jump dimensions.
Two: Cade’s got a lethal secret.
Three: Someone wants her dead.
I received a digital copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I was deathly afraid that this book was going to be swallowed by a love triangle. Fortunately, it was consumed by non-stop action, plot-twists, and parallel worlds.
Two years ago, Kori’s mother died, rupturing the familiar bond they once shared. Kori’s father, a US army general, hasn’t been the same since, appointing bodyguards to watch over his rebellious teenage daughter. But his reasons may be more costly than Kori first suspects. Constantly flying across the country, General Anderson wants nothing but the best for his daughter. But when two young, attractive soldiers appear on her doorstep, it doesn’t take long for Kori to figure out that something is wrong. And Kori’s life gets a little bit more complicated.
Kori, your typical rebellious teenager, is thrown into a brand new world identical to her own. Though frightened, Kori is willing to push aside her fears and help in any way, shape, or form that she can. Her stubborn personality conflicts with many characters, including her two babysitters, Noah and Cade.
You can’t go a chapter in this book without verbally saying, “Whaat?”. Trust me. The plot-twists are phenomenal within this book. I think they are perfectly spaced and hit you when you lead expect them. Not only that but they were executed in the perfect way. They always kept you on the edge of your seat, second guessing or predicting what a certain character’s motives are. You are seriously thrown through a loop— a fast, engaging, and endless loop.
Jus Accardo does a fantastic job with world building. Although, Noah’s and Cade’s earth is essentially the same exact thing; however, there were a few minor aspects that did set that apart. For one, they cracked the code for traveling between parallel universes.
Character wise, I wish I could’ve seen Kori grow and develop a little bit more as the story progressed. However, from the sound of the ending, it is very likely that her character will develop more as the story deepens. Besides a few minor details and facts, I honestly, didn’t see too much of a difference between Noah and Cade. I was frightened when I first believed that this book was going to be a love story better the three go them. Fortunately, it was short lived. However, both of their characters felt to alike. Yes, they both care for Kori but one’s a brother and one’s a more than friends kind of love.
Overall, I enjoyed the story. It defiantly took me on an adventure. I found the plot to be creative and somewhat unique in certain aspects. I highly recommend if you enjoy mysteries and action.
JUS ACCARDO spent her childhood reading and learning to cook. Determined to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps as a chef, she applied and was accepted to the Culinary Institute of America. But at the last minute, she realized her true path lay with fiction, not food.
Jus is the bestselling author of the popular Denazen series from Entangled publishing, as well as the Darker Agency series, and the New Adult series, The Eternal Balance. A native New Yorker, she lives in the middle of nowhere with her husband, three dogs, and sometimes guard bear, Oswald.
