Whoa. Ephemeral was C-R-A-Z-Y. The good kind of crazy, definitely. You have a spirited, hard-headed main character in Laken, whose passion and temperament rivals that of her Celestra Series counterpart, Skyla. Laken, who also is dropped into the crazy world of angel factions, the Transfer, and viscious high school rivals, also has the dreaded/beloved love triangle to deal with. Yes, another triangle. For fans of Moore's Celestra Series, you know this is a good thing! This time, we have Wes, Laken's one true love, her perfect match. But, there's also Cooper. A sweetheart of a guy, who seems more willing to believe Laken and to help her uncover her past and the truth about what is happening in this insane alternate world. Laken wants to be with Wes, loves him, but cannot deny her attraction to Cooper. I have a feeling this entanglement may end up rivaling that of Skyla/Gage/Logan. Ephemeral had so much going on. You have Laken trying to navigate and unravel this alternate world she wakes up in. The people from her other life are not the same in this world. Her family is not the same. Laken is driven to the edge wondering whether she is dead, alive, or insane. Those she trusted in her old life are the same she must be wary of in this new life. There are monsters in the forest, possible evil among her family and friends, and a battle for her heart and mind. Ephemeral is a great spin-off to the Celestra Series. Those who've read and loved that series will be extremely happy with this new series. I'm excited to find out what happens next in book two, Evanescent.

I am new to the writings of Addison Moore, and I must say that I am a paranormal snob when it comes to a good paranormal story. I am quite impressed with Mrs. Moore's writings and how you almost have to second guess your thought process on what is going on because you are so pulled into the story as a reader. Def a twisted plot to a lover's triangle, and not your typical Twilight reject story. There is alot going on in this book between different characters, however you able to follow smoothly with the different transitions due to the smooth writing of Mrs. Moore. I say if you are interested in a different kind of a paranormal romance with a twisted plot. This is a great read!

Convoluted, painful read left me feeling Moore was trying to hard.

This is a roller coaster of a story! Is Laken in Heaven or a wait station, or totally somewhere else? She is still in high school dealing with bratty girls with perfect bodies and pouty lips. She finds her beloved boyfriend Wes, but he tells her they are just friends. Nothing seems to be real to her until she another boy, Cooper comes into her life. Together they fight to find the truth. This book does not have an ending as it is a trilogy. Can't wait to read the next book.

While i found this book to be an interesting and exciting read...the author severely over uses a few choice phrases like "it feels good like this...". And whole love triangle thing is way over played. Her other series features a love triangle that stretches over 8 or so books. Do we really have to read about it again? Overall a great read, but there were a few elements of this book that i just couldnt get behind.

Through the whole book I kept wondering: Is this a dream? Is she dead? What!? It kept me wanting to know more, and I flew through the pages. This story was definitely unique which is something that is hard to find. When you find a truly original book, it's like finding a rare gem. Which is exactly what Ephemeral is. I can't wait to see where the author takes us with this series! Ephemeral by Addison Moore was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
