Rivulet by Jamie Magee
Expected publication: October 7, 2013
Unfathomable forces have always contested Genevieve Indiana Falcon, known as Indie. The curse of her cold touch entraps her just as the grief ignited in her past torments her. Yet, her mysterious ability to dream while awake saturates her in the belief that she was not always anguished. There is hope that one day a true peace in her soul can be found.Foolishly, Indie assumes she has contained her life in an odd balance, and she cherishes the visions she sees of the enigmatic boy that held her in a lost time, but can never reach. She grieves for a life she fears she'll never possess, and that grief is a weapon she uses against her aunt who stands between her and her inheritance.
Weeks away from her twenty-first birthday, the date where she would assume control over her family legacy, a night terror robs Indie of the balance she was clinging to. Like the dream she had before she lost her family, it predicts a fatal catastrophe on the horizon. The fight between life and death, good and evil, began the moment her thundering heart awoke her.Everything changed after that dream. The one thing that keeps her curse at bay is stolen, and then the enigmatic boy arrives in the flesh. Face to face with her fiery born-again lover Indie realizes that the only way she can prevent the tragedy before her is to surrender everything she was, is, and could be.
Can she bend the laws of nature and fight the improbability that fire and ice could ever be one? As far as Indie is concerned, there is not a myth, spoken fate, or curse that is stronger than her stubborn desire to have it all ... including him.
When sweet Jamie asked me if I would review her amazing book Rivulet, I couldn't get my hands on it fast enough, and I wasn't disappointed!! From the first page (the book opens with a car accent). I was hooked from the first word to the last sentence. I adored all the lifelike characters and the pacing kept me wanting more. The amount of detail in Rivulet will blow you away. I could see every facial expression to feel the biting cold of winter to the bonds of friendship and love.
Indie and her step sister are living a shattered life. After a tragic accident, they are the only two left from their perfect family. If that wasn't bad enough, their aunt is holding the family fortune and the girl's future in her evil hands. Her sister is not the only solace Indie can find to help her escape nightmare her life has become, she has the ability to dream while awake. This 'power' gives her the hope that one day her soul could find peace again.
After a tragic night, Indie can no longer balance her real life and her day dreams. Now she must risk everything to save what she desires.
What I Thought:
It was hard to write this review without giving too much away. This book is exciting, dramatic and amazing!! As always Jamie is a master story teller and you'll fall right into this story and become obsessed until the very end. You can't miss out on this book!!
Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.
