Foreign, or rather unfamiliar, would be the word I would use to describe how I felt.
Faintly, I could hear the glimmer of voices surrounding me in this dark haze, caressing my ears like skin against silk. I felt like I was in a cocoon of sorts, protectively enveloped, quietly drifting in some far-off place. I wanted to stay that way forever.
But we all know that what you want never really seems to happen in the real world.
Something’s not right in Mia’s head.
The first thing is that her name isn’t Mia. In fact, she has no clue what her name is—who she is. All that she knows is that she’s not like the ones who found her: Dante with his kind blue eyes, Amy with her child-like demeanor, James with his questioning gaze.
The one she cannot decipher no matter how hard she tries.
As Mia tries to fit in with these people, a strange occurrence is amidst outside. And as she finally remembers who she is …
Well, let’s just say that things get a little more complicated.
I really loved how this story started out. A girl, randomly showing up and no knowing who she is. Something about the amnesia that people can have, I really like. And I love that most of these people all seems to take a liking to Mia right away. Mia seems to have feelings and and is familiar with certain things, but she cannot figure out why or where these things are coming from.
Then we go into the second chapter of the book, and EVERYTHING seems to make sense. I won't spill the beans of course, but it really shed light on where Mia was from. The third part, it was like BAM! This is what it is. I was a bit taken back by this part, it wasn't what I was expecting at all. Let's just say the title of the book fits. Perfectly!
I'm still left curious about why woman were not able to go outside in Dante's world. I'm still very curious, and I found a connection from Dante's world to the second part of the book. I am eagerly awaiting the next book and cannot wait to see what happens!!
