Juniper Unraveling
By Keri Lake

I was in the mood to read something completely different, a book that would take me on a thrilling adventure away from the everyday, while still providing a memorable love story.  With the gorgeous cover and intriguing synopsis, I had a feeling that this book had the potential to give me the reading experience that I was looking for.  Juniper Unraveling hit all the marks for me.

It had been quite some time since I had read a dystopian novel.  It’s always interesting and frightening to ponder what humanity would be reduced to in the event of a worldwide catastrophe.  How would we cope, rebuild, and carry on without all of the comforts that we’ve grown accustomed to?  How would we interact with each other?  Keri Lake’s version of a world that has been forever changed is gritty, disturbing, raw, and rife with emotion.  What happens when the most harrowing threat to humankind is also the most familiar?

“But there is no monster more terrifying than the human being who lacks compassion.”

Juniper Unraveling was a fast-paced read that grabbed my full attention from the very beginning and kept me gripping my Kindle until the final page.  I was immediately invested in the characters and pulled into their lives.  The main characters were strong, brave, loyal, and selfless.  When they loved, they loved with their full hearts, reminding the reader that even in a world that has been ravaged and left seemingly hopeless, that even in the bleakest times, humans still have the capacity to love and be loved.  It’s one of the most basic needs that would continue to exist in the most desperate times.

Juniper Unraveling was an exciting and chilling read.  It was everything that I was looking for from a dystopian romance novel.  It contained the perfect amount of action to keep my pulse pounding, while also providing a love story that was completely captivating and magnetic.  It also had a couple of twists that I didn’t see coming – I love it when that happens!

Juniper Unraveling was the perfect book to shake-up my reading list.  It also gave me another talented author to add to my to-be-read list!
