Book Review: Link by Summer Wier

LinkLink (The Shadow of Light #1)
by Summer Wier
Genre: Science Fiction
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: September 29, 2015

For seventeen-year-old Kira, there’s no better way to celebrate a birthday than being surrounded by friends and huddled beside a campfire deep in the woods. And with a birthday in the peak of summer, that includes late night swims under the stars.

Or at least, it used to.

Kira’s relaxing contemplation of the universe is interrupted when a piece of it falls, colliding with her and starting a chain of events that could unexpectedly lead to the one thing in her life that’s missing—her father.

Tossed into a pieced-together world of carnivals and gypsies, an old-fashioned farmhouse, and the alluring presence of a boy from another planet, Kira discovers she’s been transported to the center of a black hole, and there’s more to the story than science can explain. She’s now linked by starlight to the world inside the darkness. And her star is dying.

If she doesn’t return home before the star’s light disappears and her link breaks, she’ll be trapped forever. But she’s not the only one ensnared, and with time running out, she’ll have to find a way to save a part of her past and a part of her future, or risk losing everything she loves.

Dreamy, fluid, and beautiful, Link pairs the mystery of science fiction with the minor-key melody of a dark fantasy, creating a tale that is as human as it is out of this world.

Summer WierAbout the Author:
Summer Wier grew up spending Saturdays with a maxed out library card and her nose in a book. But as much as she loved reading, and even writing, both took the back seat when it came to career choices. With her sights set on law school, corporate greatness, and even a hankering to become the first female president, she set off to conquer the world. As life would have it, though, she didn't attend law school, nor did she become president (although, one day, your vote may be appreciated), finding her strengths, instead, in accounting and business management. After finishing her MBA, she revived her love for reading and began writing with dreams of finishing a book of her own. When Summer isn't working, reading, or writing, she's trying to keep up with two energetic girls and her husband, and dreaming of the mountains of Montana.

My Review:
This is a beautifully written book! I was enthralled by the writing from the first chapter. This book has the most unique parallel universe and sci-fi I have ever read in a young adult book before. The characters are also well written and you become emotionally invested in Kira's quest to find answers about herself, her star, and her father! I also loved the plot and how the author was capable of weaving sci-fi, mystery, and fantasy so effortlessly. I liked that the ending left some questions unanswered so I will be able to get invested over a series of books which I love to do! This is a book I would recommend to everyone based on the great writing technique, characters, plot, and world built! This book is in my top three best books of the year!
