My Review
“Real love, she always said, knew no bounds." 

I usually don't like stories about alternate dimensions, just a personal preference I have. But I must say, this is the best story about dimension travelling that I've read so far. 

All Kori want's to do, is work on her mural. When she is escorted home by the police in the early morning, her father puts her on house arrest. When he has to travel away for work, he sends in two soldiers to watch over Kori. Only these aren't regular soldiers, they are Kori's friends from an alternate Earth, trying to save her life.

I liked Kori as a main character, but I didn't necessarily love her. I loved that she was very strong, she knew how to take care of herself and she was incredibly smart. Comparing her to the other Koris she is told about in the story, I'm glad we got to read from this one's point of view, I'm not sure if I would have finished this book if it was in the other's view. There were a lot of times that Kori couldn't understand the other character's emotions and what they were trying to tell her, even though it was clearly in her face. Other than that, she was a wonderful character.

I wasn't a huge fan of Cade (the love interest), he was okay but he just seemed really immature and jumpy to me. Definitely not my type of guy. On the other hand, Nathan was just my type. He was strong, smart, knew when to talk and when to keep his mouth shut. I loved everything about him, honestly probably more than Kori herself. 

The storyline was alright. It was definitely interesting and I did want to continue reading, but I could also see some people getting bored and giving up. I feel like you have to be really into the "parallel universe" type of books to be able to get through this one fast. 

What I didn't like about this book, was how predictable it was. Unfortunately there were no characters that surprised you throughout the book, and basically what you think will happen, happens. No surprises and nothing crazy.

This story definitely had potential, but it just wasn't a complete winner for me. I still really liked it, and will definitely continue the series if I can. 

Happy Reading,
