Jamie Loeak Blog Tour

Welcome to the fourth stop on the Jamie Loeak Blog Tour!! 

About the Author: 

Jamie Loeak is an aspiring YA author. She has written and published her first novel and continues to work toward finishing the trilogy, while new ideas for more novels pop into her ever changing mind. Jamie resides in Florida, where she is a middle school teacher. Finding time for writing is difficult within the world of lesson plans, assessments, and students; however, Jamie makes sure to make time for all of the things that she loves in life, including her students, pets, and a loving boyfriend. When Jamie isn't writing or grading papers, she is forcing her sister into photoshoots or playing her guitar. Her current goal is to finish the Body and Soul Trilogy so that she can let her other ideas escape. (Goodreads)


Kate is a sixteen year old only child, is very independent, and is used to being alone.  Her parent's both work long hours, so she anticipates spending a lot of quiet time on the beach reading to pass the summer. 

When she meets Rico and Adriana things completely change for her.  For the first time in her life, she has real friends.  The friendship initially started because of a need for Rico and Adriana to protect her.  She was attacked by "demons" on her way home from dinner with her parents and she just narrowly escaped.  Then she starts having nightmares, which seem to be showing her glimpses into the future.  Rico, Adriana, and Kate work feverishly to figure out why the demons have targeted Kate and to devise a way of stopping them.

The relationship that develops between Rico and Kate is very sweet.  While there are elements in this book that reminded me of Twilight, I would not say that this is a bad thing.  There aren't any vampires in this series, but there are similar quirks to Rico and Kate's relationship.  I don't want to give away any spoilers, so I will simply leave it at that.   

The last quarter of the book was very fast paced and contained a lot of surprises that I did not see coming.    Jamie did not leave us with a happily ever after type of ending and there are plenty of unanswered questions that need to be resolved in the next book in this series. 

I was captivated by the world that Jamie created and I absolutely LOVED the characters.  I can't wait to see what is in store for them in the sequel.  I am not sure when the next book will be released, but it sounds like there are currently three books planned in the series.  For the most up to date information, here is the link to Jamie's Blog.  Hopefully she will fill us in on her plans for this series soon. (Hint, Hint)

I would like to thank Jamie for sending me an electronic copy of her book and Krystal Clear Books for hosting this blog tour.  Be sure to check out all of the tour stops for more reviews, character and author interviews, and excerpts from the book.
