In 2012 I started reading Kristy Brown’s YA fantasy series, Kiera’s Quest, which I loved. When I knew Summer’s End was publishing, I couldn’t wait to get reading. Did it meet my expectations?

She wakes up in the hospital, badly burned with no identity.
He’s been trained to kill her before she burns the world to ashes.
When they finally meet, will he be able to take her life now that he’s started to feel for her?
His fate is already written.
The prophecy is already set.
Love between them is forbidden.
Publishing today (24th July 2018) in digital format.
Imagine waking up, not knowing who you are and why you have a drip coming out of your arm. Total blind panic! How anxious would that make you feel? Summer is literally a blank page, her only knowledge of her past from her two friends Coral and Persia.
New friend Andie is a stabilising influence on Summer. She says to Summer:
The person in front of me now is the girl I choose to be mates with. Who you are today is more important than who you may have been yesterday.
High five to Andie 🙂 although she may be very wrong …
Dooney knows his purpose having trained for only one thing. To kill Summer. It’s easy to be focussed when you’ve depersonalised your target … His doubts starts to surface when he realises that once his purpose is over, he can be whoever he wants to be and do whatever he wants to do. BUT. Taking that purpose away will leave his life empty. What will he be then?
I love a story with a deadline and with two weeks until the full moon there’s a lot of re-awakening that needs to happen for all of our characters. There are moments of tension. And confusion. Just when you think it’s going ok, another crisis looms making you sit on the edge of your seat and wanting to control what happens next! There is more than one twist that kept me guessing too.
I’ve enjoyed the romance as much as the fantasy and magic. I’ve been pulled in and given the feels alongside the characters (whether that’s a high or a low). I thought this story was a fresh look on the theme of forbidden love. The YA targeted audience are in for a treat 🙂
Summer’s End was a page turner for me. The conflict between good and evil is compelling. Both our bad boy hero and our lost heroine (who has the most awesome power) are on an internal as well as external quest. There’s magic and connections on a soul level. Betrayals. And twists. Ending with a nail biting cliffhanger. Perfect.
