Blog Tour: AMBER EYES by Jolyn Palliata: REVIEW and GIVEAWAY

MY REVIEW:
Amber Eyes is young adult written by an author that truly knows how to tell a tale.  Palliata writes in a style that will appeal to both young adults and adults alike.  The level of depth and history wrapped into this love story was quite amazing to read.  Amber Eyes was also beautifully paced.  I was pleased that Palliata took the time to tell us where Lexi and Dez have been.  That aspect added so much to the story.  I loved Neeko the cat, as well as some of the precarious situations he got into.   I was blown away at how wonderfully it all came together.  I cannot wait to see here Lexi and Dez will take us......

I rate this book 4 stars.

Book Description via AMAZON

~ Eyes are the window to the soul, in a time when souls are ancient. ~

After an accident, one she shouldn’t have walked away from, Lexi’s life finally begins. She meets Dez, a new student with the most beautiful eyes she’s ever seen. And since gazing into them, Lexi has had vivid waking dreams that pull her back through time, and into the warm embrace of a mysterious stranger—a stranger who becomes all too familiar. When offering an explanation for her detailed visions, Dez changes her world forever with two simple words: Soul mates.

For the first time in her life, Lexi feels safe and complete. But lingering in the shadows is the embodiment of evil, coveting the light within her. He’s a threat to Lexi’s very existence, and to a love that has transcended time.

Author Bio:   
Jolyn’s writing career began in 2009 when she looked across the sea of cubicles at work, and thought, “I was meant for something more than this.” That thought was immediately followed by, “I wonder if I can write a novel.” Four novels and one novella later, that question has been answered. She started with Amber Eyes (Entwined Souls Trilogy – Book One), a young adult paranormal romance. They always say, with the first book, you write about what you know. And she certainly did! Drawing off her teenage years in Oshkosh, WI, Jolyn incorporated her high school and favorite haunts. She even pulled out her favorite music from back then to help recapture the teenager within.
Jolyn has absolutely no qualifications whatsoever to be a writer, other than a knack and a passion. The knack she worked hard for through betas, critique partners, writer sites, editors, etc, but the passion she’s had since she was in middle school.  Being married, and mother to one very precocious six-year-old, doesn't leave her with a whole heckofalot of time to write – not to mention working full-time – but that is where lack of sleep comes in very handy. Jolyn has a gift of functioning on minimal sleep when totally absorbed by a writing project…although she crashes like dead weight when it’s fully completed/edited (usually 2-3 months later).


Her current listing of published books includes:
·      Amber Eyes (Entwined Souls Trilogy – Book One) – young adult paranormal romance
·      Connected (Twists of Fate #1) – paranormal romance
·      A Modern Love Story – contemporary / romantic suspense


Random information and quirks about Jolyn (because everyone has them):
·      She likes to listen to loud music. Period. But especially when she has a headache (helps to drown it out).
·      When she's overtired, she gets slaphappy. (Heaven help those around her.)
·      She titles a book before she writes it, because she's anal enough to where that would bother her.
·      She can't walk into a Barnes and Noble without buying a book. Even if she has a pile of unread books at home (which she does), it just doesn't feel right to leave empty-handed.
