‘Parallel Lives’ is a exceptionally well written story of love, personal discovery and passion. I adored it. When Kaitlin Hewlett-Grace crashes into a parallel world she not only has to get used to life on a very different level but she meets a woman who is convinced that they are destined to be together. Tannus is the Chief of the women-only society Kaitlin has entered and believes a prophecy has foretold their future together. What will Kaitlin have to say about this when she finds out? Will she ever be able to settle in this new world?
Karen Klyne has a very impressive turn of phrase, one that is irreverent and wicked and conjours up just the right image. Her world-building is deftly done and made me want to know more. I didn’t want to put it down! There was a very sensual element of desire under the surface, a sexual charge that was so enticing. Kaitlin was exposed to a life and to feelings new to her. How she dealt with them kept me enthralled. Tannus was strong on the surface but I enjoyed seeing her vulnerability as her feelings for Kaitlin grew. It was an excellent story, very emotional at times and I literally can’t wait for the next one in the series.
I received an ARC of this book from Global Wordsmiths in exchange for a fair and honest review.
