Finding Summerland by Paige Bleu

Finding Summerland
by Paige Bleu

Publication Date: July 17, 2012

Book Description (taken from amazon):

After his brothers recent disapearance Wesley Rochester wished he could just fade into obscurity. Searching for closure, he's haunted by visons. Consumed with decoding the messages, he begins turning dangerously deeper inward. Enter an intriguing, 'not quite' human stranger, who mysteriously arrives just as he feels all hope is lost. Together they begin to realize that their destinies are intricately tangled in a drama reaching far beyond the realms of the wold they know. Discovering the secrets plaguing wesley since childhood are no coincidence, and everything he believes is shattered. Captivated by her, he must decide between the life he has and the one he'd forgotten. 

'Finding Summerland' is like 'Twilight' in the sense that it is a supernatural, coming of age romance—but has a genre bending, metaphysical element and a much deeper rabbit hole. Follow the journey of two star crossed souls as they explore who they are and the ties that bind them. Enter a world intentionally forgotten. A place buried by history, where only the chosen are aware of its existence. A place covenants are made and broken, where myth leads to truth and forbidden love threatens to destroy or be destroyed, becoming just another casualty in their shadow war. 

The introductory novel in a series of five, called 'The Ameryn Chronicles'—but compelling enough to stand alone—'Finding Summerland' is sure to be savored by anyone craving to stretch the bounds of ordinary imagination, edgy enough to engage readers who enjoy unravelling a mystery, and sweet enough to grab onto the hearts of the romance lovers! Where legends breathe and dreams are alive. A 'trippy' journey to a new reality.

I was given this book for my honest review by the author

My Opinion:
Wesley Rochester was what you would call a stranger in his own family. His sister had won every pageant and contest that she entered and his brother was a athlete, a star athlete. To his friends his name is Wes didn’t really belong in his family. He was told that he had a learning disability, ADD but did he? All he wanted to do was stay in his room and play his guitar with no one around his to bug him. What I thought the weirdest thing about this book was his dreams. Where he was drawing and drawing but only woke up to one drawing. Everything changed for Wes of course as soon as he met a girl who was watching him. Her name is Olivia. From there on Wes’s life will never be the same.

This book was filled with so much emotion, makes you wonder if the author herself cried, laughed when was needed. I know it took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. With Wes’s family ways and how he doesn’t fit into his own family it made my heartache for him.  I find this book a paranormal romance genre and right up my alley on what I like to read. To think that I read this book within 2 days, that shows you how much I loved this book and cant wait to read more on this series. I am happy that the second book will be out soon. I also put off on finishing this book because I didn’t want to wait to see what happens and I wanted to stay in Wes’s and Olivia’s world. I think a HUGE thank you is in order to the author for writing such an amazing book! And I look forward to reading more from this author rather it’s the next book in this series or a short story I don’t care.

Star Rating:
5 out of 5 star
