Review: Meridian by Amber Kizer
Age Group: Young Adult
Level of Romance: Medium. It doesn't dominate the story, but it is something of an important factor.
Summary: As a child, Meridian woke to dead bugs and animals on her pillow. Until her sixteenth birthday party she believes she is death. But after a mysterious car crash in front of her house, she's shipped off to live with her Auntie Meridian, her namesake, in Revelation, Colorado. There her aunt tells her she's a Fenestra, the windows that ferry souls on to the next life. But arriving in Revelation, Meridian was stepping into a battle bigger than she could have imagined.
Review: This is a fast-paced book, for the most part, but perhaps too fast when it comes to when it matters most. Overall a great base for a interesting and, no doubt, crazed over series. Definitely something to read for those who want a new, fresh approach on the paranormal romance. It's interesting and a bit daring how Kizer confronts religious beliefs and the possibilities about the transition between life and death.
