* I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*
To Nowhere was a fantasy with a unique twist. The book follows Lyris, a girl who has always lived under her wealthy parent's shadow. That is, until a dashing man named Wyatt mysteriously jumps into her life and sweeps her off her feet. But when Lyris opens the door to Wyatt's strange "haunted" house, she uncovers a world unlike her own. A world where giants roam and keep humans captive as pets. Will Lyris be able to escape?
I quite enjoyed this book. I felt that it was a lot different than any other fantasy I've read before. The concept was very interesting, and the book had a lot of unique twists and turns. While I did have some issues with the main character, I was quite satisfied.
I loved the plot line of this book. It was different, and cool, and something that you wouldn't expect. It was interesting to read about a whole different species acting like how humans do, and the fact that they kept humans as pets. It was kind of like reading a book through a dog's perspective! I was thoroughly interested.
I enjoyed reading about the male protagonist, Brindt in this book. Brindt is a giant who keeps Lyris hostage. At first he is perceived as the bad guy, but as the book progresses, he develops into a lovable and kind character that I admired so much.
One character that I didn't like so much in this book, was Lyris. I found her to be very impulsive in her decision-making, and also kind of naive. I mean, she goes into a haunted house with a guy she's just met and expects a happily ever after. It just didn't seem that realistic, although she does get a lot better as the book goes on.
Overall, this was a very intriguing book and something that will take you buy surprise. I think that it's originality, paid off.
