I was not expecting to love this book as much as I did at all! I honestly didn't think that I was going to be able to follow it after reading the synopsis and also a few chapters but I soon found myself unable to put it down! I found the plot slightly confusing but once I started being able to follow it I loved it! It was completely original and it had so much potential! The characters were amazing! Jesca was the main character and I adored her! I loved how she acted and her attitude to what she had to do! I also connected with her the whole way through this book! I originally thought that Ezra was going to be the love interest of Jesca but I was completely wrong and I was very surprised with who he actually was! Nate was actually the love interest of Jesca and I loved him! He was perfect with Jesca even though he wasn't in this book as much as I would have liked! Xander was also sort of a love interest of Jesca and I did like him and also how he helped Jesca, Ezra and Nate but I am Team Nate! I hope that Jesca and Xander's relationship does develop a little more as well so that the love triangle between them and Nate heats up in the next book in this series! I loved the book being told from all different point of views as well but it was mostly told from Jesca's point of view! The ending of the book leaves so much open as to what coud happen in the next book which I am looking forward to reading! I also love the cover! Big thank you to Venessa for providing me with a copy of Piercing the Fold!
Imagine if you were a normal person, going about your daily life, who has moments out of time that can't be explained. One day a different reality bursts in to prick the bubble of that `normality' and thrust you into a world you had never even imagined could exist. Just imagine! That's the basis of the story of Jesca that begins its process of reveal in Piercing the Fold. The characters Venessa draws are so lifelike, that the book almost makes you think that this reality is living right next door to you too - perhaps it is, we'll probably never know. The settings and initial situations seem so `real', that you could be forgiven for imagining they might happen to you the next time you step out the door. However, as the story unfolds, the world Venessa has created shifts from the comfortably familiar, to a darker one no-one would like to see. I enjoyed the book very much, it kept me gripped right to its conclusion and I'm looking forward to part II with anticipation.
