Stacking the Shelves {3}

Hey Everyone! I'm here today with another Stacking the Shelves, hosted at Tynga's Reviews. This is where we share what we bought, received, or borrowed each week :).

I actually only received one book this week, along with a signed Breathless tours poster I won. Slow week I suppose :).

For Review:

Changing Worlds by Donald E. Dambois


Danielle Walkerman and her family are looking to spend quality time together at a log cabin in the woods, only to get disrupted when alone in the hills, she discovers a pale girl with white hair lying unconscious on the ground. When they find out she's homeless, Danielle convinces her dad to let the girl, named Dharalyn, return home with them.

Danielle begins to notice strange things about Dharalyn. She continues to lose the color in her face and appears sicklier every day. When she catches Dharalyn drinking blood from Danielle's grandmother, the young girl, believing her grandmother had been attacked, throws her houseguest out. After learning the truth, Danielle struggles to overcome her prejudices. Realizing that Dharalyn needs blood to survive and that their bond is stronger than her fears, she finds Dharalyn and convinces her to return home.

Upon discovery that Danielle's family may lose their ranch, Dharalyn offers her most prized-possession, a pair of diamond bracelets. When the two girls travel to the city to pawn the diamonds from the bracelets, they meet with businessman Michael Moretti, a suspected mob boss who manages to swindle them. Dharalyn takes drastic measures to get the full amount of money from the crooked boss in order to help her new friends.

But that's not the end of the mob boss for the two girls. Michael Moretti sends a group of his henchmen to the girls' school after his suspicions are confirmed that one of the girls is not who she seems. When the men arrive at the school, the new friends face a dangerous fight for their lives.

  9. Well done from a new author! I enjoyed this book from start to finish. It's so nice to see a story about family values and what true friendship really encompasses. The blend of rich detail, subtle hints and nuances drew me into the story making it hard for me to put the book down; as tired as I was I kept telling myself `just one more page'. I like stories with strong characters, characters that I can identify with and this book delivers. I laughed, cried and cheered the heroines. The clever weaving of plots and subplots has me impatiently waiting for the next book --- don't delay Mr. Dambois!!


I appreciate and read each and every one of your comments! Thanks for taking your time to stop by!
