BOOK REVIEW: "Otherworld" by Stella Coulson

When Lenore’s world falls down, the fallout results in her travel to another dimension called the ‘Otherworld’. Within it, she encounters feral beasts, monsters and beautiful creatures with sadistic tastes. Once a victim - but never no more.

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

Note: you might want to read Whitby After Dark, the first book in this series, before you make the journey through Lenore's story in this book.
You get right into the story from page one, the moment you open your Kindle. It was easy and nearly seamless for me to slip right back into Lenore's world, despite it being nearly two years since I read the first book. Coulson created a world with characters who really stick with you once you've closed the book. The plot really evolved since Whitby was released, showing how the author has grown between books. All the characters are still very unique and three-dimensional, making you feel as though you are living their stories with them.
There's a lot of adventure and action, still with more allusions to abuse as there were in the first book, allegory that equates abuse with fictional monsters, making it more palatable. The mix of emotion and action and a dash of mystery make this a kick a** read, however there were some editing issues I feel I should point out. There were missing words, and sometimes I found that the capitalization of certain words to be distracting. It didn't take away too much from the book, but it was hard to stop reading to mentally edit and fix sentences as I read.
Overall, it's a great book with a deep, meaningful message beneath all that paranormal goodness. Definitely a book you should pick up ASAP.

4/5--exciting and intricate.
