Surfacing the Rim by Venessa Kimball

Another fantastic book from Venessa Kimball.
5 out of 5
Surfacing the Rim started right where Piercing the Fold left off. It consumed me so much I read it in one day. I felt as if I was living within the book. It is such a one of the kind storyline that has a little bit of something for everyone. During this installment Jesca is faced with a mission that in order to complete, she has to overcome many difficulties. You learn a lot about the history of the copula and family secrets as well. The suspense and details in it were fabulous. I loved how the book reminded me of the suspense in the House of Night Series and the love triangle in Twilight.  Ahh love triangle team Nate or team Xander??..... I can't choose. Nate is so sweet and protective, yet Xander is just as sweet and the passion between Jes and him is like fire. I am still undecided, but leaning towards Xander! I am so looking forward to the third book and hope all of you get to experience this wonderful series!
Favorite Excerpt from the book:
"  "Even if this started because of what they chose for us, it's not why I am choosing to be here with you now." I sigh and make sure she can't get in my thoughts. God, if you only knew what you mean to me. It's so much more than this link. With her body molded to mine. I feel our hearts beat seperately, and then they quicken in time with one other until they are synchronized. "

Piercing the Fold by Venessa Kimball

Venessa Kimball did an excellent job writing this first book to her series.
I give it 5 out 5!

I loved this book from beginning to end! It is about a young woman that begins experiencing dizzy spells and hearing the thoughts of others. When she is confronted by her professor an unexpected bond is automatically formed. Later she finds out she is destined to be a guardian and is sent away to train. While training she meets gorgeous Nate and learns they are connected to one another. Once placed in her territory she is forced to leave him behind and is confronted with danger. A mysterious boy catches her attention and the story takes a turn. With love, suspense, and details like no other this story is beautifully written. Towards the end I caught myself  getting chills and not wanting to put it down.  Between the descriptions of scenery to the character personalities, the author did a great job at painting pictures in your mind.  I was consumed by the storyline. I loved the scientific parts and that she tied religion in as well. Definitely recommend this to all readers.
My Favorite Excerpt from the book:
"   Nate is breathing heavily with his hands on his hips. His eyes are burning deep into mine. "What thoughts?" Don't think about it. Nate moves toward me. "Too late." He cups both of his hands around my face so delicately. I can't take my eyes off his face, his eyes, his lips. I could have easily slipped away, but didn't. He brushes a few hairs off of my face that had fallen loose on my run. I feel myself breathing faster, not from running. I put my hand over his.  "

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

I write this review with tears in my eyes. What an excellent read. When I first began the story I was confused, but by the middle I was absolutely sucked in. Melanie was taken over by a host/alien from another planet and has to struggle with watching the host live her life. They butt heads but by the end have a wonderful friendship. The pictures Stephanie Meyer painted in my head from the cave to the characters were incredible ... There is love, suspense, and sadness throughout this book. The ending was a huge shock and left me speechless. I would give it 5 out 5 for sure!

If you dare to read this you will be suprised by who the real killer was. But again this book contains very explicit details.
