Seasons Within

Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Most teenage girls know their name, where they came from, who they are. Not G, a beautiful redhead with unusual markings on her wrist. She gets her name from a silver locket she keeps around her neck, unaware the engraved letter “G” on its front holds the secret to her past.

G’s life before the age of six has been a mystery to her. Each night for the last twelve years she’s been haunted by the same nightmare—a war. Horrendous beasts, warriors able to wield the four elements, and a boy who saves her by means of blue fire taunt her memory. But on her eighteenth birthday, G’s life begins to unravel. When she meets her new Chemistry professor, a man with an uncanny resemblance to the boy who saves her, she knows there must be more to her dreams.

It’s dangerous not knowing who you are, what you’re capable of, and what future awaits you. Especially when the darkness that slaughtered your entire world, just found you.

My Review:

G grew up in an orphanage and has no memory of her life before the age of six when she was abandon. Over time her memories start to come back to her in increments but very slowly. G loves nature, she loves being outside with all the trees, plants and animals. One of her best friends is a tree named Bobby. G is one with nature.

G has a necklace that she has had ever since she can remember and one day it is ripped from her neck and all her protection is gone. She is then taken away by her new teacher and some more people who she learns later are all there to help and to keep her safe from the people who are hunting her and want her dead.

Things start to change for G in a big way for her after that. She doesn’t know what is going on or what is happening to her as she has no control over it yet. G soon learns that she has powers and can control the elements upon eighteenth birthday.

G is a very strong willed girl who likes doing things her own way but at the same time she has a very big heart and never wants to hurt anyone. G would do anything to keep the people that she loves and cares about safe even if that means putting her own life in danger.

G wants to be like any other girl her age and live a life just like other girls her age but when she finds out who she is and what she has to do she doesn’t hesitate to do her duty for her people. But she is afraid that she may not be the right person for the job or that she can’t do it.

I really enjoyed reading Seasons Within and about G with her being Mother Nature and Goddess Gaia. I love reading stories about the Gods and Goddess and how their lives may have been. I loved the world that the author has created in Seasons Within. I love how all the characters will put their own loves in jeopardy before anyone else’s. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and find out more about G’s life and what will happen to her and all her friends. If you haven’t read Seasons Within then let me suggest that you do.
