Amazon Synopsis:

Hailey had become used to the abuse. She had learned to expect it and to be prepared. She had always kept her head down, never speaking a word of her home life to anyone except her best friend, Jennifer. 

But, when Jennifer moves away, her loneliness begins to engulf her, leaving her unstable at best. When Johnny, the hottest boy in school, humiliates her on a fake date, she is suddenly pushed over an edge, an edge she didn’t know she had. 
In her rage, she releases an unexpected and powerful force, throwing her mother across the room in a blinding flash of light. 

In a matter of a few days, her life is turned upside down. After discovering her powers, she is suddenly teleported across the universe to an alien kingdom, where she meets an oddly familiar prince. It is here on this strange but beautiful alien world where she learns who she was, and who she is destined to become.

My Thoughts:

I was intrigued with this novel when I read the synopsis and looking forward to reading it. Unfortunately I was quite disappointed when I came to actually read the book. I found the characters to be very shallow. Hailey seems to experience every emotion in the extreme whether it is joy, anxiety or sadness.

I thought that the basic premise of the story was good. However, I was distracted by the number of grammatical errors that I encountered as I read the book. Descriptions of the surroundings that Hailey found herself in were quite good.

I gave this book a rating of one star. Please remember that these reviews are my opinion only, and others reading the book may feel differently.

Thank you to the author Alicia J. Love for providing a copy of this novel in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.

  1. Aw, sorry you didn't enjoy this one. I read the synopsis, seen "Alien Kingdom" and thought it could be interesting but I guess not.
