Inescapable by Amy Bartol
I personally know Ms. Bartol and wanted to give her a big paws up for her debut novel and book one of her new series. This is young adult fiction but unlike the Twighlight series, it isn’t feeding off an underlying message. Instead, Inescapable is just an entertaining read. It is appropriate for the Twilight crowd as Bartol doesn’t fill her college set novel with gratuitous sex and language. She story is what drives the book, not shock.
Crestview, Bartol’s fictional college modeled after Hillsdale College in southern Michigan is the stage for this urban fantasy featuring heroine Evie Claremont who is entering her freshman year and hoping to escape the nightmares that have plagued her life. She is in for a surprise for once she enters Crestview the nightmares begin to come to life. What secrets will Evie uncover and how will she face the demons in her dreams? Book one of this series, called the Premonition series hooked me and I look forward to reading the next ones.
Unfortunately, this book is only available as an ebook, so folks looking for the paperback may have to wait. If you have an ereader and a young, teenage daughter, this is the perfect book to have her read during the holiday breaks that are fast approaching.
