ARC REVIEW - DRIFT by Amy Murray



Do you fancy a story about love, suspense and time traveling? What if I said I have the perfect book for you? Take a look...

DRIFT 
by Amy Murray


I’m not crazy. My mother may have died with everyone believing she was insane, but I refuse to accept that as my fate. Even if I am recalling memories about a life I never lived. A life that includes the mysterious James—a guy I’ve only just met, but feel as if I’ve known all my life. The memories are coming hard and fast, and I’m falling down a rabbit hole with consequences that far exceed anything I could have ever imagined. And now, someone is trying to kill me. 


Someone from my past who knows about my visions and is looking for something he believes I took from him. All I have to do is figure out how these memories relate to the present and maybe I’ll survive to live another day.

Maybe…

My review


I had a great time reading this book. I must confess isn't my usual kind of books but I did enjoy it a lot. Even though I love paranormal books, time traveling or past lives aren't my thing. But I decided to give it a try and I'm happy I did it.


This story combine new adult romance with a little bit of PNR. Abby, the lead character, saw her mother drift away from her thanks to the schizophrenia and that fact marked her life. One day she started to relive things, memories, that she didn't had before. She started to remember things that weren't part of her present life, and all those things happened after she met a handsome but mysterious man called James. 

With the backstory she had, it isn't hard to understand when she freaked out and started to think that maybe she had schizophrenia too. But reality wasn't easy to explain. She wasn't sick, she had a power. And that power allowed her to travel in time and see moments of her pasts lives. Somehow, Abby isn't the one with an ability, because James had the power to relive some scenes of his past as well, only that he decided to immortalize those scenes as paints. And, precisely, those paintings unchained a series of dangerous events.

I loved the vivid descriptions, both in the past and in the present, from Abby's perspective. It was like being on her shoes. The author has a talent to take the reader in a trip, make you be part of the story and deliver raw and intense emotions, to make you smile, and cry, and scream... I was bitting my nails most of the time. I was desperate to know every single detail about the characters. I read this book in a few hours. I couldn't put it down. And when a story has this power to drag you in and never let you go, then you know is a good story.

If you ask me for words to describe this book, I should say it was thrilling, intense, overwhelming, suspenseful, passionate and utterly romantic. Amy Murray was a new author for me, and certainly this won't be the last time I will be reading her.
