Review of Infusion by Alyssa Thiessen with GIVEAWAY!

Rachel is ordinary. Average. Utterly unremarkable… until her best friend shoots her on her 16th birthday and a stranger brings her from death’s doorstep with an infusion of his own DNA.

Then everything gets weird.

She heals impossibly fast. She senses the thoughts of others. She sees places and horrifying creatures that couldn’t possibly exist, and her new friend Tyler is convinced she’s destined to save the world from their invasion.

Can she trust him? Can she trust herself? How’s she supposed to stop inter-dimensional invaders when she can barely deal with high school?

Ready or not, here they come.

If I’d known I was going to die on my sixteenth birthday, I probably would’ve spent a little time on my makeup that morning. As it was, I lay in the field, cold, and all I could think was that I hadn’t even bothered to run a brush through my hair before I left. I mean, at the very least, I could’ve worn earrings. It started to rain, softly at first, and I felt my teeth chattering. No, not felt. Heard. I heard something else, too. Jared sobbing. Loudly.

It was funny—I’d known him all my life, and I’d never heard him cry before. Would he be crying so desperately if he hadn’t been the one who shot me?


*I was given a copy in exchange for my honest review*

First off, the opening of this book is amazing! Aspiring authors take note. Love the action right from the get-go! As a lover of all things science fiction this book was right up my alley. I loved reading every minute and the fast pace of the story. The characters are well developed and this is a well written, well-edited book.
I found even though I didn't have Rachel's abilities, she was an easy character to relate to. I think lovers of science fiction, young adult adventures, or just well-written stories should pick up a copy!
