Review: Amber Eyes by Jolyn Palliata

After an accident, one she shouldn’t have walked away from, Lexi’s life finally begins. She meets Dez, a new student with the most beautiful eyes she’s ever seen. And since gazing into them, Lexi has had vivid waking dreams that pull her back through time, and into the warm embrace of a mysterious stranger—a stranger who becomes all too familiar. When offering an explanation for her detailed visions, Dez changes her world forever with two simple words: Soul mates. For the first time in her life, Lexi feels safe and complete. But lingering in the shadows is the embodiment of evil, coveting the light within her. He’s a threat to Lexi’s very existence, and to a love that has transcended time.

Soul mates are such a fascinating topic and in the YA world they embody so much of a young woman's thoughts. Lexi finds her soul mate, the mysterious Dez with the intriguing eye color. I love the vivid imagery that Jolyn Palliata weaves with her tale of Lexi and her introduction to the world of entwined souls. (Where were these types of books when I was growing up?)

The evil presence that you feel throughout the whole book keeps it edgy and as it is part of a series, you get left with a cliffhanger, wanting to yell in protest on behalf of Lexi. If you are a fan of YA and paranormal romance, this is a series for you! Jolyn will not let you down if you give your imagination over to her talented hands.


Stay tuned for a great guest post from Jolyn coming up in a few.
