Book Review → Strange In Skin by Sara V. Zook
Strange in Skin by Sara V. Zook, was published January 24th 2012, by Imagine Press.
From the moment Anna James meets the strange prisoner Emry Logan, she becomes instantly obsessed and will stop at nothing to try to get another interaction with him. But going against her family and church aren’t without consequence. She is deemed a traitor as she quickly realizes that there’s more to Emry’s past than just murder. He has a special ability that is far from human that he only shares with her. Feeling this magical connection, Anna has to free her beautiful inmate so that they can be together finally, but someone else knows about Emry’s secret and wants Anna to stop digging for answers as she finds herself in the midst of a modern day witch hunt. The life of an innocent pastor’s kid suddenly is turned upside down in a war between good and evil as Anna begins to wonder which people in her life are on the side of good, and is she one of them
Anna James & Emry Logan have an instant connection. I find their interactions together were great to read and I loved how Emry helped Anna grow into a more independent woman. I think it’s great that each character helped the other on the their journey. I find Anna helped Emry have hope and believe in things again. It was a nice contrast.
They face a lot of problems together and separate. I won’t spoil anything but it was great to see how Sara tied in smaller story lines into her overall story. I love the family story and how real Anna reacted to a lot of it.
Strange in Skin by Sara V. Zook was an enjoyable read. I was unsure at first due to my personal preference of genre and how the characters first interacted. It eventually smoothed out and came together nicely. I recommend checking out this book if your into young love, with lots of drama not only between the main characters themselves but their lives.
I’m thankful for getting the chance to read this book in exchange for a review. It was great to read from a new author and I look forward to the sequel. I believe that now that the characters have a base to go from – the second book will be even better.
