Seeds of Discovery review and giveaway

Quinn Robbins' life was everything she thought a teenager's should be. She has good friends, a family that she loves, good grades, and an after-school job she enjoys. And, she's just been asked out by Zander Cunningham, a popular football player and great guy. But one day when driving home after picking up her little sister from the baby-sitter's, she nearly hits a boy who, after running blindly into the street, mysteriously disappears.

The mystery only deepens as she figures out who the boy is; William Rose, a reclusive, awkward boy from school who always has his nose in a pile of books.

As she becomes more aware of his behavior it becomes more obvious how out of the ordinary William is and how hard he deliberately tries to blend into the background. This only intrigues her more and she finds herself working to find out more about him, and exactly where he keeps

disappearing to.

On a whim one night she follows him and suddenly finds herself in a new world. One where William is a prince, literally, and she is treated like a princess. She also discovers that she is stuck; the gate back to her own world isn't always open.

Quinn finds herself smack in the middle of a modern-day fairy tale, on a course that will change her life forever.



Quinn Robbins has just returned from spending ten days in Eirentheos, a world she had never known existed. Trying to settle back into her familiar life and establish a relationship with her new boyfriend, Zander, is more of a challenge than she ever dreamed it would be.

Things are just beginning to feel normal again when Thomas shows up in her world, and invites her back to Eirentheos for a royal wedding. She's excited at the chance to reconnect with the people and places she had begun to fall in love with.

What she doesn't realize is just how deeply connected with this new world she might become ... and just what old secrets might be beginning to unravel.

The second book in the beloved Dusk Gate series reconnects Quinn with the charming princes, and the pristine world of Eirentheos. From a beautiful royal wedding to a dangerous rescue mission, Quinn's adventures are about to take her life on a course that will change it forever.

 My Review:
I am only reviewing Seeds of Discovery. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own. I have always like stories with some sort of time travel, especially to the times of kings and queens. After all who does't want to be a princess? How cool is it that William comes to her world to read books, and go to high school! I thought this was very clever. Does he read about himself? Is he trying to change the History books?
I thought that Quinn was stupid to go following a stranger, and I am not sure that this would be appropriate for all young readers. However It was handled in a way that she knew who she was following, she just didn't know everything about him. The beginning of the book was kinda slow for me, but that was do to explaning and exploring William's world. Once it got going I really liked this book and was happy with the ending. There was enough info to keep me satisfied with this book, but enough unanswered to keep me wanting for the next installment!  All in all I give this book a 4 out of 5. :)
