A missing boy, government agents, an interdimensional portal…
Mia has one goal for her senior year at Whispering Woods High–find her missing older brother. But when her science project reveals a portal into another dimension, she learns that travelers are moving in and out of her woods in the most alarming way and government agents Regulus and Arizona are policing their immigration. Mia’s drawn to the mysterious, aloof Regulus, but it’s no time for a crush. She needs to find out what they know about her brother, while the agents fight to save the world from viral contamination. But when Regulus reveals that he knows Mia’s secrets, she begins to wonder if there’s more going on than she thought…and if she was wrong to trust him…
I highly recommend this book. It was very good. Brinda Berry sent the first three books in the Whispering Woods Series to me to review. Let me tell you. This. Book. Was. In-cred-ib-le. The main character, Mia, is fun to watch. As she discovers herself and surveys the world around her -I was unable to look away.
Regulus was phenomenal. Uh, I’ll take one please. I loved all of his interactions with Mia and his partner in crime, Arizona. Regulus was one of those characters I would love to see be made into a film just to challenge the casting director. Good luck finding someone that hot.
This cover doesn’t really scream Young Adult but don’t let that fool you. I was hesitant at first too, but once getting into the series I realized that you shouldn’t judge this book by it’s cover. While the face of this book reads sensual adult novel the pages within are actually very innocent. There isn’t a lot of cursing and minor kissing. There are some relationships that poke out at you at random times, (get a life Austin) but over all this book series is one I will surely continue on with.
