The Reader:(The Immortal Series Book 1) by M.K. Harkins

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Love will either save or destroy her. 

Hunted, shot, and without her memory, eighteen-year-old Ann Baker wakes in shallow water on a deserted Pacific Northwest island. She is soon approached by two young men claiming to be her friends. Something isn’t right, but when gunshots sound, Ann is left with little choice but to flee to safety with Devon and Archer. Soon she finds herself in their North Bend, mountain compound, where the higher evolved humans claim to be mind-readers. While Ann heals, she realizes they believe her to be one of the last and most powerful of all – The Lost One.

She’s welcomed by most with open arms, but not everyone is happy about her arrival. A jealous adversary has plans for Ann, which spirals the entire Reader community into chaos.

As lies, murder, and betrayal threaten to rip apart the once harmonious mountain dwellers, Ann finds love, but is thrust into making a decision that could save or devastate not only The Readers, but all of mankind. There’s just one glitch; by doing so may require her to make the ultimate sacrifice.

My Review

This book is about a supernatural world existing among us. The readers are a unique group of extraordinary people; their archnemesis, the Jacks, are painted as evil, body snatching supernaturals who cause chaos. One phrophecy, a war, and a lot of decisions lead to a young girl who is truly special. Ann isn’t like the rest of the characters and truly stands out. Devon is careful, intelligent, and skilled, but his emotions are taken over. This was an epic supernatural, paranormal read about fulfilling destiny and finding love. I love how the author included both the paranormal and the fated mates differently in this book. This book is part of The Immortal Series and is the first book in the series.

The blurb of this book hints at an action-packed adventure about beating the odds. This book caught my interest from an advertisement on Facebook. 

This book begins by intriguing a woman who wakes up on the beach injured with no memory of her or where she is. Two young men find her soon after waking up and start talking nonsense about a compound, jacks, and other things she isn’t sure about. They rescue her and bring her home to their compound in Oregon. 

Her name is Ann, and she is an inquisitive woman who often annoys her rescuers to know the end. They take her to Samara, a mountain compound that is very private and has been around for a very long time. The doc fills Anna’s head with supernatural knowledge about his works and why she is there. Not sure she believes it yet, but it is exciting and kind of fantasy-based but also very paranormal. 

I think she is mated to Devon and doesn’t know it yet. But she seems to be slowly discovering a lot about herself. However, a radio news channel broadcast at the worst time sets her on a different course. 

Her supernatural powers start to show, and I love her abilities. Ohh, I was right with her destined mate. But I’m so wrong about where this would go next; wow, I’m surprised. This book doesn’t end as I expected, and it was gripping right through until the end. I enjoyed the pace of the story. I loved the ending of this book and how well-written this story was.
