BOOK REVIEW: "Unelmoija: Paradox" by Elle Boca

Amy and her friends uncover the cause of the disappearance of New Lyon, only to face their greatest challenge. Altering the past could mean the end of all humanity, while doing nothing could have dire consequences for those they love. Forced to risk everything and choose between the familiar and the unknown, even the Unelmoija may not be strong enough to evade the paradox.

* I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

I should note that I have not read the first four books in this series, so starting with book five, I was quite certain I would be lost. Thankfully, that was not the case, as the author recaps nicely throughout the book. It give many spoilers, of course, but it ensures that any reader who sees this book can read it without confusion.
The book itself is not overly long, but there are times when I found it to fall a bit flat when it comes to emotions. This is a character-fueled story, but those characters start to get very two-dimensional after a while, as do many author's characters when there have been numerous books surrounding them.
I am not sure if this is going to be the last book in the series, but if it is, it is an excellent place to end it. There was closure for all issues the previous books did not solve, and there were still very slight things left unsolved, which I think is necessary: it will keep the readers thinking about your books long after they've finished reading them, and allows them to be creative thinking about the things left undone.
Reading this book was a very visual experience, and I honestly felt that I knew the characters personally, which was a nice touch. As I said, my only issue is that there could have been more descriptive action and emotions. A great book, and I just might head over to Amazon and pick up the rest of the series!

4/5--Great work!

Purchase Paradox via Amazon!
