There is more than one perspective to every story. On Qarradune, it takes two points of view to make sense of the world. What you know depends on whose story you are following.
My life went from ordinary to extraordinary in the blink of an eye. I didn't know where I was or how I got there. I didn't know if I would ever see my home or the people that I loved, again. All I did know was that I had to save her.
Beaten, unwashed, and starving, I was alone, imprisoned, and enslaved. I didn't want to die, but I was ready. At least, I thought I was. Someone entered my life and tipped the world over. My beautiful bubble had burst, but the reality that came next was astounding.
Love at First Plight is the debut novel of Amanda Giasson and Julie B. Campbell, and is also the first volume in the Perspective book series.

About the Author
After having met by chance in the lineup at their university bookstore on their first day of classes, Amanda and Julie became fast friends. They credit their survival of many of their 3-hour long lectures to their ability to escape to the world of Qarradune.
The truth is that Megan and Irys were born of note-passing in the form of creative writing. While neither author condones this behavior in-class, as it likely does nothing for a student's grades, it did happen to work out, in their case. It also helped to define the unique writing style shared by the authors in the creation of the story.
The two authors have been steadily working on the Perspective book series, ever since.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I instantly fell in love with the writing in this book. Multiple POV usually drives me nutty and is an instant red flag, but Julie and Amanda pull it off effortlessly. Right from the start, the plot draws you in and the subtle details and intricate writing are just icing on the cake. You can tell a great deal of care went into writing this novel - the authors crafted the sentences carefully to fully paint the scenes for the readers. I have to admit, from the title I was expecting more of a zany romantic romp, something funny and maybe even silly. This book is NOT that. At all. But what it is, is amazing nonetheless. At times, it reminded me of the 60’s show, “The Prisoner,” or maybe even “The Trial,” and I loved that existentialist feel. Megan and Irys both were great characters and easy to connect with. I’ve never had such a strong feeling of wanting to strangle a character as I did with Megan in the last chapter! When you care that much, the writers are obviously doing something right. I very much enjoyed the adventure of Love at First Plight, and I look forward to reading the sequel.
OMG Love at First Plight was so good. I wish I didn't read it so fast but I couldn't put it down. I hope that the Perspective series gets more books soon because I want to know what happens next. This is really good when you want to read about strong female characters who don't just do the damsel in distress thing. I love that it has romance, but that's not the main point of it. It's more about the mystery and the action of the story. Awesome!
