Review: Wake By: Amanda Hocking

WakeWake by Amanda Hocking
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A wonderful quick read, with an unusual topic - I can't resist the five star rating.

In a small little town in southeast Maryland, Gemma Fisher has her every day normal life turned upside down. First, the boy next door, Alex, is looking better and better even if he happens to be her older sister, Harper's best friend. Second, a strange trio (once a foursome) has entered the town and seems to have a darkness to them even under their beauty. Third, people are missing, and the fear of a serial killer is hitting the residents.

Gemma can not resist the water, from training for the Olympics in the pool to her nightly swims in the ocean, but these swims don't go unnoticed by those that have something to gain by using her.

I found the book very good, wonderfully written, an interesting topic, and I can't wait for the next in the series - there is a cliffhanger.

The characters are easy to identify with and are multidemensional, a definite must read.
