TITLE:  Mesmeris
AUTHOR:  K E Coles
PUBLISHER:   Create Space Independent Publishing Platform
RATING:  5/5
SOURCE: Given by author, in exchange for an honest review.



‘How about we pretend,’ he said, ‘just for today? I pretend I’m good and you pretend to believe me.’ Pearl is seventeen and bored. She wants a boyfriend, wants excitement, wants a life. When she meets Jack, cool, sexy and funny, she thinks she’s found it, but Jack has secrets, and Pearl finds herself drawn into the murky world of violent religious sect, Mesmeris.

Pearl is a pretty normal teenager, and wants some exciting things to happen in her life. Jack, who is handsome and funny, crosses paths with Pearl- and she thinks she has found the excitement she has been looking for. But- little does Pearl know that she has been dragged into the world of a crazy, religious cult...

I was very impressed by, "Mesmeris-" it really takes YA on a
different path, making it dark, thrilling and even more exciting. I honestly could not put the book down, having to stay up late one night to finish it; having an overwhelming urge to find out what happened.

The chapters are exactly the right length, just enough to make readers hungry for more. Every single chapter ended on a brilliant cliffhanger, that had me gasping as I delved into the next one. My favourite thing about the book was that there was an underlying love story- which was very real and believeable. A lot of other books have a soppy love story; and it becomes quite boring. Jack and Pearl had brilliant, snappy dialogue, and their love story had me wondering: will they, won't they?

"Mesmeris," is sharp, fast, and bursting with suspense. I love how some authors have the power to allow readers to become glued to thier pages; Coles really did this for me. I rate this book 5/5 hoots, as I think it has all the potential to become a YA bestseller.
