Alissia Roswell left her abusive, childhood home immediately following her high school graduation--swearing she would never return. After ten years of hard work, she's finally satisfied with her place in life. Highly independent, she takes great pride in needing no one other than herself. When she learns of her father's sudden death, she decides to return to her hometown for the funeral. A visit to the old oak tree concealing her teenage diary pulls her into an alternate world, where her body begins to change in mysterious ways. As everything spins out of her control, with danger lurking around every corner, she's forced to rely upon others. Her mind soon becomes her enemy, haunting her with memories from her past, while her heart strays from her control, teasing her with the incomprehensible notion of love.

Join Alissia on her perilous quest full of adventure, magic, and romance as she travels the challenging road of finding one self--maybe even love along the way.

Unexpected Metamorphosis is a mesmerizing story. Here’s the setting. We have a young woman, a tortured soul. She grew up hiding the evidence of an abusive father and protecting her sister from him. As a consequence, her sister has no idea of his actions, leading to an estranged relationship between the siblings. The mother was weak, abandoning the marriage, but leaving her children to be raised by the father. So Alissia has survived by building an emotional wall, not allowing herself to bond with anyone. Now, ten years later, her father’s funeral brings her back to the childhood home she had abandoned. And when she goes to retrieve a diary she had secreted beneath the roots of an oak tree, she is sucked violently into another realm. Have I spoiled the story? No, all of this happens in the first few pages! Read the sample for yourself! The plot is twisted and complex. The intrigue is spellbinding. The characters are deep and multi-dimensional. The unpredictable, non-stop action builds to a crisis point at the end of the book. Even the romantic aspect of the book is non-linear and captivating. The romance is entrancing, but not so over-powering as to be off-putting to male readers. My husband loved the book, devouring both volumes in two days. I feel I should say something negative to make you know this is a legitimate review, but I honestly have to work hard to find something I didn’t like. Perhaps it would have been fun to observe some of the backstory instead of having Grady explain everything that had happened in the past. But that might have slowed the story down or made the book too long. The only negative thing I can really say is that the series isn’t finished yet. Warning… You will want to buy and read the next book. Warning… You will want to buy and read the third book, but it isn’t written yet. LOL

Reviewed by Kim Anisi for Readers' Favorite Unexpected Metamorphosis: Book One in the Alissia Roswell Series by Tianna Holley is a mix of fantasy and romance which tends to be more romance in this part of the series. The main character is a normal girl in our world - Alissia - but when she suddenly gets pulled into another dimension, everything changes. For one, her eyes and hair turn purple over time and she discovers a few very interesting abilities. The world she then lives in, though, isn't a world that welcomes such people and Alissia finds that she has more enemies than allies. Some want to protect her, some want to get rid of her, and some would like to take advantage of the powers they suspect she has (but might not have!). The story is rather interesting, however, these days, it always seems to be about love triangles. So this is a bit of a cliche and when Luke appeared again, I was already sure about some of the things that would happen. In a way, the book was a bit predictable. However, it was very well written and entertaining. I just wish we already had learned more about the various mysterious creatures that inhabit the other dimension as the story always became very interesting when they were mentioned or even briefly turned up. Unexpected Metamorphosis leaves many questions unanswered and I'm sure readers will be quite motivated to read the second book to get those answers. Book 1 was well written and pictures of what the world looked like easily appear in the reader's head.
