-- My Thoughts --
Ok, so I read the anthology, Furthermore (my review here) and one of the stories really caught my eye. It was somewhat of a prequel to this novel, so I had to get my hands on the novel, of course.
Maryah is just a normal seventeen-year-old girl. But when tragedy strikes, and she is sent to live with a godmother she never knew about, her life becomes as far from normal as possible. Strangely, this huge family are more familiar with her than she knows. And one of the boys, Nathaniel, is the guy from her dreams, literally...
This book is pure unique. I have ever read anything about kindrily-ies, but they are very fascinating. The family Maryah lives with are souls that are able to retain memories from their past lives when they are given new bodies. The little twists and turns in this book left me breathless, but the tension, and the build-up felt really good and thought-out. GRASPING AT ETERNITY was one hell of a romantic ride!The characters are superb. Each one of them are unique, Nathaniel, Maryan, Mickey, Fate, Harmony, River... Every single one of them stuck with me and their uniqueness is unforgettable. The end wrapped things up nicely but left room for new developments. I am not overly obsessed but I am definitely interested to read the second book, TAKING BACK FOREVER...
