““Becoming Milla Blaire: Anomaly” by Candice Stockstell
Candice takes you on a wonderful magical and wildly unexpected adventure in this intriguing novel. I was astounded with questions upon questions about what was happening to this girl as I was drawn in, deeper and deeper, the more I read. The author presents situations to her characters which makes you think about the situations. She makes you think how you would react in those situations. I can’t help but think that the list of adjectives you could use to accurately describe this novel could take up a whole page.
I found myself laughing at times, on the edge of my seat at others, captivated at many points, and most of all is that element that every reader looks for in a great book – that you want to be there in the story. In parts of the book you hope you never see anything ever remotely close to what the characters go through or experience. Other parts you want to walk through and smell, taste and enjoy it with the characters.
The book is intelligent as it seeps inside your mind and causes you to consider reality, perception, truth, honesty, redemption, and true love. It tickles your brain while it tugs at your heart all in the course of a brilliant story that is new, fresh, and very imaginative. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and the depth of the writing leads me to wonder what else this author has done. I will be following her writing as a fan from now on.
