Rating: 🌟🌟🌟

Every night after Ember Pierce falls asleep, she disappears. She can teleport anywhere in the world—London, Paris, her crush’s bedroom—wherever her dreams lead her. Ten minutes is all she gets, and once time’s up, she returns to her bed. It’s a secret she’s successfully kept for the last five years. But now someone knows.

I have to first admit I loved Pestilence so I thought Laura Thalassa’s would be as good as that. Now, that said, as soon as I read the summary it intrigued me, reminded me of that film with Hayden Christensen (Ilovehim) that I really can’t remember very well apart from that he jumped to places and things happened? Either way, I was interested , I was intrigued. But unfortunately I finished this book and I felt like there were too many issues with it for me to geniunely like it. The spacing, the characters and the insta-love were some of the main issues I had. Ember wasn’t what I expected as a main character she was likeable enough at times but other times it felt too much like the ~super special super original~ MC you’re supposed to like. I was mostly intrigued on wanting to know more about the superpowers and about this new corporation/military facility she’s now stuck in. The book of course leaves you with a cliffhanger because there’s two more (I think?) to come and I’m honestly still debating whether to continue or to leave it there.

More spoiler-y review under this read more 🙂
