#BookReview: Shock of Fate (Anchoress #1) by D.L. Armillei

Synopsis: One ordinary teenager. One extraordinary mission. And a destiny she never expected.

Like every other teenager on Providence Island, fifteen-year-old Vanessa Cross is so ready to party her summer away—until her father disappears. And rumors fly that he’s a traitor.

Plucked from her ordinary life to journey to an alternate world to retrieve a priceless relic, Van bends—okay, breaks—the rules to sneak her best friend along to help with a quest of her own. Find her father. Prove his innocence.

What she finds will test her heart, her wits, and her courage, and push her along a stumbling path toward a destiny she never expected or wanted. Failure to rise to the challenge could destroy her friends. What’s left of her family. And the people she was born to protect.


Rating: 4 Stars
My Review: This story starts right in the middle of things. And although usually I feel super lost when that happens. This one was actually pretty easy to follow.  I loved how the story progressed but I have to say that it took a while for me to really care about the characters.  I did enjoy how these teens really felt like teens. They made bad choices and had to learn things along the way. I think that the blend of fantasy and sci-fi was wonderfully done. And I am excited to check out the next title. 

About the Author

A Massachusetts native, D. L. Armillei now splits her time between living in her home state and Florida. She can often be found sweating in a Zumba class, playing in the Universal and Disney parks, or hanging around tiki huts as long as they're on white sandy beaches. Being under the impression she's a treasure hunter, she sometimes scuba dives but usually chickens out and ends up snorkeling.  --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
