Review: Into the Aether by T.C. Pearce

A scared teenager, Lara must battle her own inner demons ... while being stalked in her nightmares by an all-too-real monster. She has only two options: run or succumb. 

A courageous woman, Cybil is doing her best to piece together a new life free of her abusive husband. She is cursed with confused glimpses into future events she may not be able to change-including her own death. 

An honorable warrior, and the reluctant leader of her people, August must undertake the familial obligation of protecting a seemingly ordinary high school teacher. If she shirks her duty, then the world will fall to a preternatural tyrant in search of a long-lost weapon of immense power. 

Their stories weave together to reveal a mysterious supernatural world that hides just beneath our own. As chaos swirls among and around them, the three women must put aside their differences and act together, or watch two worlds collide in a deluge of fire and blood.

Received for review.

I wanted to like this more than I did but I just never did get into it.  There was just too much going on with all the intertwined stories and characters and it was just too distracting to truly enjoy.

I also was not particularly impressed with the characters who were stereotypical at best - the bullied high schooler and the abused wife.  Yawn.  They were not interesting or likable in the least which significantly decreased any sort of enjoyment I may have had in the story.

Overall, while well written, this was just not interesting or enjoyable and I really cannot recommend it.

★★☆☆☆ = Just Okay
