Overview

Gemini of Emreiana by Kristen DaRay

My entire life has been a lie: My parents didn't die in a car accident. They're not even dead. I'm not American. I'm not even human. I have strange powers, and I'm the heir to the throne of Emreiana.

If I take the crown, I have to leave behind everything I have ever known here on Earth. I would have to say goodbye to my friends and leave behind Kyle, the boy I've loved since I was five. If I don't, then I risk the Bremoir finding me here on Earth and destroying everything I love.

Carson is a normal senior in high school applying to college, deciding what she wants to do with her future and keeping her relationship with long term boyfriend Kyle going. Of course when every college rejects you even though your the valedictorian and you start having strange dreams of worlds that don't exist, then something seems a bit off. Then comes a stranger that tells you everything you thought you knew about your life is false and in fact you are an alien. That's right alien. No ordinary alien either, but a princess in line for the throne of Emreiana and your mother, who you thought was dead, is actually alive and well and reigning Queen. Things get a little sticky. My favorite part actually starts right there with the explanation. Carson doesn't immediately buy the fact she is an alien and a princess, which was great. Too many times have I read about normal human beings that suddenly find out something impossible and just automatically believe it. You or I wouldn't just jump on that alien train if someone told us they existed and I was one of them, you'd think they were crazy. For Carson to process this information and take her time coming to her own conclusion I thoroughly enjoyed. The same can be said for her feelings towards her new gaurdian and her boyfriend. No insta-love here, and she really had to figure out what she truly felt and where it was coming from before she made any definitive decisions for her life. That was a refreshing change from a genre that is saturated with said love stories. In terms of this being an alien story, I really enjoyed that aspect. I thought the fact that it seemed to be starting as a normal human girl story and built into this otherworldly affair was what made this story go from cute to awesome. The problem with these kinds of books are that it takes a whole chunk of book to explain what this other world is like and what the people are like because of them being, well, not human. The author does a really good job of not making that boring or exceedingly long, which really helps the book move along. That is a tricky thing to navigate while still giving lots of descriptions and information so for that I applaud Gemini of Emreiana for succeeding in making a sci-fi story flow.

Gemini of Emreiana is Kristen DaRay’s debut novel. It is a great YA/Fantasy book with a story line that is very interesting and different. It had my attention from the very beginning. Carson is an eighteen year old girl living in Alice, a small town, with her Aunt Trish. She is a high school senior and valedictorian of her class. For a week, she has been having strange dreams of a beautiful oasis with exotic plants and waterfalls. In her dream, she hears a male voice. When she turns around there is a handsome young man. He calls her lanai but she doesn’t understand why he called her that so he tells her the meaning of the word. He tells her that she is from Emreiana and explains to her about her family. She doesn’t know what to think of it all. Not long after, Carson finds out the truth about who her parents are, who she is, and where they are from. Aunt Trish explains everything to her and the reason why they had to leave Emreiana. Everything that she has found out has turned her life upside down and she is having a hard time understanding and believing all of it. In time, will she be able to accept everything and what is going on? Will she be able to forgive her aunt for keeping the truth from her?  This is the beginning of Carson’s journey. Whether she wants to believe and accept the truth, Carson knows what she has to do in order to keep her friends and all of the citizens of Alice safe from whatever is coming after her. Are they prepared for the disaster that is coming there way? Will they be able to survive and get out in time?     As I was reading, I could feel the rollercoaster emotions that Carson was having through out the story.  Kristen DaRay has done a great job writing her first book. I am looking forward to reading more of her future books.
