Book Review: Melanie's Evanescent Journey by B Truly

Release date: April 23 2014

New Adult, Paranormal-Romance Companion novel for The Sonar Series

True Love may cost a price, if the greater good preordains that you are the sacrifice.

There are always two sides to a story. Melanie Wilhelm's begins after she moves from Australia and starts her senior year at Cashmere High. On her first day, she bumps into a mysterious guy, and they form an instant connection. They become friends and he shares his deepest secret with her. As they grow closer, their relationship amplifies and becomes binding. Strange things occur, but instead of worrying, Melanie's feelings intensify.
The excitement of New Year's Eve approaches, and so does Jason's most devastating revelation of all. She learns his ultimate truth and is now spun into his chaotic web. The danger rises and hard choices must be made. By being with Jason, Melanie may have to sacrifice more than her heart. It may cost her life.

Melanie's Evanescent Journey ties into books one and two of The Sonar Trilogy. From spiraling twists to devastating plots, her journey will make you question fate and true love.
Is fate something you can control? Some believe it's in the hands of what you behold.

About the author: B Truly

I have wanted to be an author since I was fifteen years old and I'm grateful to have accomplished this dream. I have three wonderful children and a husband who defines the person I am today. I work as an Ultrasound technologist in Sugarland, Texas and enjoy this field.

I have very vivid dreams and a wild imagination. I like to read and watch tons of TV shows and movies. I’m addicted to romance and get a thrill out of action and suspense. I write New Adult Fantasy, Sci-fi, and Paranormal-Romance. 
In the Sonar series it was fun to explore different elements of Sci-fi romance and create various realms of powers for my characters. I want to show my readers that Sci-fi can be fun, but also traumatic. I hope you guys enjoy the Sonar Series. 

My Review: This is the second book in the Sonar Series and because I already read Sonar The Crashing by B Truly first I was able to understand the storyline easily.  Per the summary I assumed this was the same story as Sonar The Crashing but told from a different persons perspective.  I was skeptical if this book would hold my interest as I had already read the story from Shiray and Brians perspective but this was from Melanies.  I also will admit from the first book I didn't like Mel very much, this book explored the story from her point of view and I ended up liking her a lot by the end.  I was pleasantly surprised at how B Truly was able to keep the old characters, added new ones flawlessly and also kept similar track of the original story's timeline but also you are able to see what else is happening simultaneously.  I found this book a wonderful read and intend to start the next book in this series tonight.  I give this a 5 out of 5 as it couldn't be simple writing to make this story so smooth with two perspectives. Well done!
