Dissolve by Andrea Heltsley

Summary: Everything seemed to be going right for Cora. She had a wonderful fiance, a great best friend and a fulfilling life. One day, a tragic event causes that life to crumble around her. She turns to her best friend in her time of need. They embark on a search for answers, delving deeper into a web of magic and destruction. The closer they get to the truth, the more questions they have. To Cora, magic was the stuff of fairy tales. Immersed into a very different kind of world, the real storm was just beginning to take hold.

“It felt like I was nowhere yet everywhere all at once. I was invisible and completely panicked. The millions of pieces I had dissolved to drift on the breeze and away from my nightmares. It was kind of like floating weightless in a pool, perfectly relaxing. The warm breeze from the window embraced and soothed me. I let the air current carry me as far as it could through the summer city.”
“Defeated, I closed my eyes and took a few calming breaths trying to relax myself. I pictured the dandelion in the park today and took a deep breath as to blow the fluffy seeds in all directions. I pretended I was light and fluffy and started to feel a tingling in my body. I began to feel as light as the dandelion seeds and soon I felt like mist floating. This time, I tried to keep myself in the room, swirling in a humid block.”

My Views: The book starts in a totally different flavour than the one it takes on later, so that is a good surprise element.

It is fast -paced and has lots of action in it, you will also find some romance and of course the thrill and mystery are all there. Lots of genres there, right? Something for everyone.

I did have a few problems with the book like I didn’t agree with the reactions of some characters and the reality of the situation but well, people are sometimes like that, so well.

The killer? I mean seriously. The book has a huge cliffhanger. Andrea, you CANNOT do that! I was panicking as I noticed the percentage on my Kindle as 96%..98% and I was like no, no, no, this can’t be happening. You absolutely cannot do this. So the whole reason the book was being devoured quickly was taken away from me. *sigh* The mystery still intact and guess what, Detour, the next in the series comes out in 2013. I feel like killing someone right now. And of course, Andrea it is not you, since I do want to read the next one, I can’t possibly kill you. *chuckles*

So well, if you are looking for a nice mystery and some action, do go for this one.

Often seen with a nose buried in a book, you might spy me at a library while 500 unread books adorn my shelf. At other times, I'm busy travelling solo, eating out or looking for my new escapades. You will always find me doing too much all at once.

  1. I feel your pain Pragya….I would rather it be thick standalone books to these series and trilogies…..but we take what we get and try now to drown in ,misery as we wait for yet another book to hopefully finish what our questioning minds NEED to know. Weell, another book I must read! Thanks for the review!
