    Well, I picked up this freebie because it has a character named Talia in it And in chapter one I found out that her name is Talia Johnson, my maiden name Wow, that is a first But the joy ended soon after because the story was a tad bit dull Elaine s friend Talia is missing, and she and some friends search Talia s house looking for clues to what might have happened to her They find a hidden passage leading down to some mines, and Elaine winds up in another world with scary gnomes after her She wanders around in this world for a long time, and I was ready to quit at this point The ending did make the book a little better, but that was just the last two chapters So I ll give it two stars for the interesting ending and for using my name for a character D.

    Title AloneAuthor Holly HookGenre Young Adult FantasyFormat EbookPages 165Rating 3.5Setting Another DimensionMain Characters ElaineSupporting Characters Talia, Travis, ShawnSummary Elaine s best friend, Talia, is missing Shawn, her boyfriend, and Travis, their friend, go to the foster house where Talia was staying and end up in another world Shawn and Travis get taken and Elaine ends up on the run Can she survive and save her friends Thoughts This starts out a little slow, it wasn t until about 75% of the way through that it really started to get interesting Elaine is a little whiny but is willing to do what needs to be done to survive and I did like that about her The cliffhanger ending definitely through me for a loop and I look forward to reading the next book.I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Reading and reviewing books Good book It really is for young people, but I enjoyed it anyways I like to think about the possibilities of other worlds, both parellel to ours or far away in space and wonder jhow things would have developed differently.

    Read this review and on my blog at Roxie Writes Alone by Holly Hook 4 5Finished on October 22, 2016Read with Kindle Unlimited SubscriptionFREE on Kindle Unlimited 2.99 on KindleElaine has spent her whole life, all sixteen years of it, in the shadow of her murderer father, trying to prove to her peers that she s nothing like him Despite it all, she finds solace in her best friend, Talia, and her gorgeous boyfriend, Shawn.Elaine s home life is picturesque compared to Talia s, though Talia is a foster kid, shuffled from home to home, and when Elaine finds out that Talia has gone missing, she knows something is very, very wrong Everyone believes she s a runaway, but Elaine knows Talia wouldn t just take off without telling her, no matter how much she hated her new foster home.So, Elaine, Shawn, and their friend Travis go looking for Talia, and they end up crossing through a portal into somewhere out of this world Separated and alone, Elaine knows she must rescue her friends, but first she must figure out how to survive in this new world where beasts awaken at night with one thing on their mind hunt her down and kill her To survive and bring back the people she loves, she ll have to come face to face with the family history she s been running from her entire life.I read this book as part of my yearofindiewomen I read this book during Dewey s 24 Hour readathon.The start of this book was a little draggy, and it took me a little while to like Elaine I thought she was a bit annoying and immature even for a sixteen year old , but I stuck with the novel, and I m glad I did because once I got about a fourth of the way in, it started to get interesting, and I really liked the rest of the series.I wish there was a bit of a focus on her mother, stepfather, and her relationship with them at the start of the series because I think it would have made the ending of the series stronger The character development is pretty good in this book The primary focus for most of the novel is Elaine alone, so Hook does a good job of turning Elaine from unlikable into a loveable heroine by the end of the series.Elaine quickly evolves from a sort of self pitying teenager into an inventive survivor who kicks ass and takes names She does what she has to do to survive, and learns a fast lesson that sometimes you have to do things you don t like to come out on top.What got me really excited about this series was not Elaine, but the world that Hook creates in this series She does a fabulous job The creatures that populate this new land are fascinating, terrible, and beautiful The idea of a giant centipede is one of the most terrifying things I can imagine And I loved the sickening quality of the Dwellers eyes and the Megapede s belly What a cool and unique ability.I blasted through it and jumped right into the next novel, Found , as quickly as I could because I wanted to spend as much time in Selwyn as I could.My one big complaint about this novel was the You re halfway through But wait, there s sales pitch in the middle of the book That was annoying and completely pulled me out of the story If I hadn t had been enjoying the world of Selwyn so much, I would have ditched the series completely, honestly, I was so turned off by that But thankfully, she ditched that in subsequent novels.
