Through the Surface by Juliet Rose is a supernatural tale of destiny. On an island off the coast of Maine, evil lurks. It has been lying dormant since the previous owner of the property passed away. Now all of the carefully laid plans are finally falling into place. Ledger has lived on the island his entire life, as did his father. There are roots here and that is why he has found it so hard to leave. Then there is Iris. She inherited the lodge on the island after her grandmother passed away. With few people of his age about, Ledger allows himself to spend time with Iris. In each other, they discover an unbreakable bond. But the evil around them is growing. Pre-destined to confront each other in battle, can they overcome their intended purpose and find peace in their love, or will the ancient evil prevail and rip their world apart?
I kept thinking of Through the Surface as a puzzle without a picture to work from. You have your side pieces. You have the basic color palette while sorting the inside pieces. Just as you build a puzzle and the pieces start fitting together, this book had me in a constant state of wonder. I was terrified. I was ecstatic. I was holding thumbs, hoping that everything would work out for the best. With storytelling this superb by Juliet Rose, it's no wonder I was pulled into the embrace of the pages where I shared each emotion with the characters. This book is recommended for avid readers of the supernatural as well as more mature readers. Do yourself a favor and take the author’s hand because the journey she will take you on will be unforgettable.
