I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Zarine and Jim are driving home from a road trip. While Zarine was napping, to her dismay, Jim decides to come off of Highway 10 and take a back road through the forest. Zarine is suddenly filled fear and begs Jim to go back on the highway. Out of nowhere comes a neon green wind that spins their car, damages the windshield and invisibly enters Zarine. Her life is inexplicably changed. This is Zarine’s journey, fighting Akaesman Syndrome. I love the fact that someone mixed an alien invasion into a Christian Fantasy novel. This book was brilliantly written, with the good versus evil concept. Akaesman, even the description of him and his behavior tells you that this ‘thing’ is Satan. I enjoyed the fact that she needed to be spiritually strong to defeat him. There were a lot of parallels to Christianity, the way we think and how it assists in overcoming obstacles. I enjoyed this very much. I felt really bad for Zarine with the situation she had with her friends. The issues she had with them were realistic and so was what she was going through, her symptoms seemed close to Fibromyalgia. I loved her fighting spirit and the fact that she never gave up. All in all, a great book that teaches us to never give up, and that when you feel alone, you’re not.
