As promised I have reviewed Semblance by Logan Patricks. Check it out below or read it on GoodReads.
Make sure to stop by his blog and check that out as well.
There are a few main characters in this ensemble cast that bring to the forefront multitudes of emotions from the reader. Aria is the "main character" and she is a strong well spoken woman who knows what she wants from life and is willing to take chances to get it, that is what lead her to the Midnight Society after all. We watch as she grows and transforms from a starving college student too afraid to speak up, into someone who is willing to do whatever necessary to protect those she cares about. Aria's cleverness and sharp tongue are in great contrast to those around her who seek to play follow the leader and adds an element of texture to the writing.
The male romantic interest is Shadow and yes, just like his name describes there is more to him than meets the eye. As the story unfolds we are shown a man who secretly wants acceptance but is unwilling to sacrifice himself or what he believes in to get them. Prior to Aria, Shadow lived his life only to obtain his one goal and nothing would stand in his way... until her. When challenges are thrown his way and his life goal is seemingly slipping from his grasp I can only guess as to how his focus will change and he will overcome these new obstacles, but I do know I'm waiting on the edge of my seat to see how he handles it!
As the roller-coaster that is Semblance came to a close I can still look back and laugh, cry and throw things with how the story progressed. It's a wonderful read with a hell of a twist and I highly recommend it, just make sure you have tissue and a punching bag close at hand.
