Review of Disolve

Book Review of Disolve sponsored by Innovative Book Tours

 Book Synopsis:

  Everything seemed to be going right for Cora. She had a wonderful fiancé, a great best friend and a fulfilling life. One day, a tragic event causes that life to crumble around her. She turns to her best friend in her time of need. They embark on a search for answers, delving deeper into a web of magic and destruction. The closer they get to the truth, the more questions they have. To Cora, magic was the stuff of fairytales. Immersed into a very different kind of world, the storm was just beginning to take hold.

“It felt like I was nowhere yet everywhere all at once. I was invisible and completely panicked. The millions of pieces I had dissolved to drift on the breeze and away from my nightmares. It was kind of like floating weightless in a pool, perfectly relaxing. The warm breeze from the window embraced and soothed me. I let the air current carry me as far as it could through the summer city.”

“Defeated, I closed my eyes and took a few calming breaths trying to relax myself. I pictured the dandelion in the park today and took a deep breath as to blow the fluffy seeds in all directions. I pretended I was light and fluffy and started to feel a tingling in my body. I began to feel as light as the dandelion seeds and soon I felt like mist floating. This time, I tried to keep myself in the room, in a humid block.”

I rushed into the front room only to find the nightmare playing out just like in my dream.  Soon it was all a blur and I felt as if I was coming apart at the seams.  I felt light, weightless.  I saw myself mist into a million particles before I dissolved.
It felt like I was nowhere yet everywhere all at once.  I was invisible and completely panicked.  The millions of pieces I had dissolved into drifted on the breeze and away from my nightmares.  It was kind of like floating weightless in a pool, perfectly relaxing.  The warm breeze from the window embraced and soothed me.  I let the air current carry me as far as it could through the summer city.
 I just floated through the air as my frayed nerves softened and the edge of panic subsided.  I felt so at peace and relaxed.  I eventually made my way to Water Street and then I tried to force myself into Nessa’s building.  My particles seeped at the seams of the door all around, splitting.
Once inside, the air died and my particles began to form again.  In a matter of seconds, I swirled into my human form.  Naked and freaked, I looked up to see Nessa witnessing the whole thing with her jaw dropped.  The coffee mug she had been holding fell to the floor and shattered on the cherry wood.  We stood like that for several seconds before I broke out of my own shock.
“I could really use some clothes, Nessa.  This is kind of awkward,” I admitted, trying to shake her out of her shocked trance.
She snapped her jaw shut and left the room in silence.  Just as quickly, she returned and tossed me a fluffy, white bath robe.  The shock in her eyes had yet to dissipate and I wasn’t sure I could blame her.  I was still in a state of shock myself.  I wasted no time wrapping myself in the bath robe and having a seat on her brown leather couch.
Nessa stood there for several seconds before breaking out of it and joining me on the couch.  I threw my arms around her and the tears began to flow without regard. 
“Please tell me that was a figment of my imagination,” Nessa said.

Book Review:

            This book was fabulous.  Imagine going out with friends for drinks one night and waking up the next day with a throbbing headache… okay we can imagine that, but supposing the headache didn’t clear up by day 2?  Then you hear something and wake up to discover your fiancé brutally murdered.  Wouldn’t you just want to melt away and float through the air away from problem?  Well what would you do if that actually happened?  Yes, that’s right, you broke up into little molecules and floated away only to reappear at your best friend’s house… naked… and covered in blood.  Yeah, I can just see the faces on the police when you told them.

            This is exactly what happens to Cora.  Then she and her friend Nessa decide to go on the run to find out who exactly killed her fiancé.  While they are trying to decide what to do the man who bought Cora a drink stabs Nessa with a needle and she passes out.  When she gets better after her massive headache and hung-over feeling, she has unique gifts too. 

            As the story progresses, they find more people like themselves.  All have recently had contact with the mysterious man.  As they find out more about their abilities, people start disappearing…lots of people… and they still don’t know what is going on, but their little group has grown to 7 people.  They end up in a trap and escape from that only to be arrested by the FBI.  And then……….. the book ends.  (screams “nnnooooo”).

            The sequel comes out in 2013, which can’t come soon enough for me.  I highly recommend this book.  It is fabulous.  I give this book 5 clouds.  I can’t wait for the sequel.
