These are all super books, but don’t just take my word for it, have a read of some of the early reviews:
“When The World Was Flat (And We Were In Love) is a thoroughly original, dimension-hopping love story. The fusion of the dreamlike plot and the completely believable characters makes for an addictive read. Lillie, her friends and her mother stay in the mind for long after the final page has been turned.”
- Jack Heath, award-winning author of the Lab and Money Run.
“When the World Was Flat (and we were in love) by Ingrid Jonach is a compelling and outstanding masterpiece weaving in mystery, mind-bending twists, alternate dimensions and an epic love altogether seamlessly. Perfect for fans of parallel universe and time travel romance novels like me, which makes this book perfect for me. You wouldn’t be able to stop thinking about it long after you have finished reading it.”
- Oops! I Read a Book Again
“WTWWF is a wonderful combination of mystery, confusion, love and science. You will get drawn into this amazing world, your perceptions will change and you will be captivated all the way to the amazing conclusion.”
– Book Nerd Reviews
“Thrilling, funny with a kick ass heroine who’s not even phased by mystic maggots.”
– Keren David, author of When I Was Joe
“Overall, I would say that this book is perfect for anyone who loves the YA Genre and would like a quick, fast paced, exciting book to help them get through the day. Cummings has produced something unique that grabs the readers attention from the start.”
- Charlotte Kane
“A brilliantly engaging read and a fabulous example of how a second in the series book should be done.”
- Kirsty, Overflowing Library
“Unique, fast-paced, and rife with tension, The Woken Gods brilliantly pits loyalty against survival, trust against inevitability, and love against fear.”
- Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth series
“The Woken Gods is a captivating story of secrets, mysteries, lies and adventure, blending rich mythology with a contemporary setting. I’d recommend to fans of Neil Gaiman, Zoë Marriott and Cassandra Clare. I was already a fan of Gwenda Bond after reading her debut novel, Blackwood”
- Kate Ormand
“Between the diverse cast of interesting characters, the creative plot, and the engaging writing style, The Woken Gods has a guaranteed place on my shelves for a long time to come. YA fans who enjoy a departure from standard material, female protagonists who can stand on their own two feet, and a wild creative ride will do well to check this one out.”
