The last thing Laken Stewart remembers is the oncoming car, then bursting through the windshield.
Two months dissolve without her knowledge and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings with strangers who not only profess to know her but insist she’s someone else entirely.
Laken discovers her long dead boyfriend, Wesley, has been thrown into this alternate world as well. He is quick to inform her she suffered a horrible fall and that her memory hasn’t fully returned. According to Wesley the other life she had—her name, her family, they were simply a side effect of her brain trauma.
In her quest for answers she meets Cooper Flanders, the son of her psychiatrist who readily believes every word she says.
Laken Stewart knows she died on that hot July afternoon, but now she’s alive—or is she?
Ephemeral is the first book in The Countenance Series by Addison Moore. Everything about this book lured me in. I loved the cover, the blurb sounded good, and once I started reading, I couldn't stop. The setting was eerie and you know right away something's just not right. The characters are believable. I'm definitely Team Cooper. Through the whole book I kept wondering: Is this a dream? Is she dead? What!? It kept me wanting to know more, and I flew through the pages. This story was definitely unique which is something that is hard to find. When you find a truly original book, it's like finding a rare gem. Which is exactly what Ephemeral is. I can't wait to see where the author takes us with this series!
Ephemeral by Addison Moore was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
