One of the greatest parts about being an indie author is the community. I’ve mentioned #IndieBooksBeSeen before, and because of this group of lovely indie authors I have found support, readers, and great new stories to read. So today I want to spotlight The Summer Solstice: Enchanted by K.K. Allen.
After Katrina “Kat” Summer’s mother dies a mysterious and tragic death, Kat is hurtled into life at Apollo Beach. Her estranged and cryptic grandmother Rose fills Kat with legends of her Ancient Greek Ancestors from which the Summer family descends. Kat’s world begins to unravel as secrets from her heritage are exposed – secrets that her mother purposefully concealed.
Leading to her birthday, the day of the Summer Solstice, Kat becomes frightened when enigmatic visions and disturbing dreams haunt her. When her visions become reality, her fear turns to terror as powerful forces threaten the lives of those around her.
Amidst the turmoil, Kat meets Alec Stone, her gorgeous neighbor, who becomes her sole solace in an evocative world of mythological enchantment and evil prophecies that lurk around every corner…
Enchanting is a pretty accurate word to describe this story; along with a few other words like sweet, exciting, and compelling. I went into this book completely blind. I didn’t read the synopsis (which to be honest I rarely do… I find I enjoy books more that way) and I had only seen one review. It didn’t take long for me to become totally captivated into the story. Each character is well written and K.K. Allen will have you falling in love with Alec Stone.
The book itself is relatively short, so it’s a pretty quick read, but it leaves you craving more. Luckily the sequel, The Summer Solstice: Equinox, will be released in December 11! So the next indie book you plan on picking up should be this one. I recommend this story to fans of Evermore by Alyson Noel and other paranormal YA.
