*REVIEW* Strength(Mark of Nexus Book 1) By Carrie Butler
Strength (Mark of the Nexus #1)
By Carrie Butler
When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, her rumor-laced notions are shattered. Handsome, considerate, and seemingly sane, Wallace Blake doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, screaming and banging on the walls of his dorm room. Hell, he doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, period.
Too curious for her own good, Rena vows to uncover the truth behind Wallace’s madman reputation--and how two seconds of contact had left her with bruises. Of course, there are a few setbacks along the way: guilt, admiration, feelings of the warm and fuzzy variety…
Not to mention the unwanted attention of Wallace's powerful, supernaturally-gifted family.
They’re a bloodline divided by opposing ideals, two soon-to-be warring factions that live in secret among us. When Rena ends up caught in their crossfire, Wallace has no choice but to save her by using his powers. Now they’re really in trouble. With war on the horizon and Rena’s life in the balance, he needs to put some distance between them. But Rena won’t let go. If fighting is what it takes to prove her own strength and keep Wallace in her life, then that’s what she’ll do--even if it means risking a whole lot more than her heart.
(Upper YA/New Adult)
I was given a copy of Strength for an Honest Review.
I am always a fan of a great Paranormal YA/NA book.Carrie Butler Hit Strength out of the ballpark.Strength is the story of Rena who is in college.She and her friends are terrified of the crazy guy,Wallace upstairs.He has cluster headaches and from the rumors he may or may not be harming people.Rena Literally bumps into him on accident when meeting a friend.Nothing out of the ordinary,right?Nothing but the fact that Wallace left major bruising on her from a mere bump. Strength opens up a whole new world of supernatural beings and reminds me a small bit of the Characters in Heroes with their abilities.Strength has it all.It has romance,action and an amazing storyline.
Being a blogger one of the best things that happens to me is when an Author that I am unaware of comes to me and requests that I review their book.Do you know why?It gives me that amazing opportunity to fall in love with an author that I personally was not aware of.It gives me that opportunity to fall in love with their book.Their Characters.It makes me realize just how many amazing books there are in this world to read.
Strength is a great read.Your going to want to read it and not put it down.You will be drawn to Both Rena and Wallace.But not only to them but to the Secondary characters.They play a decent role here but do not overpower the main characters.I adore when I am able to gush about a book.Simply adore it.Read Strength(Book 1 of Mark of the Nexus) By Carrie Butler.You will NOT be disappointed.Give yourself a huge pat on the Back Carrie Butler.You have written a Winner!
