Blog Tour: Stitch by Samantha Durante Review & Giveaway

"Her heart races, her muscles coil, and every impulse in Alessa's body screams at her to run... but yet she's powerless to move.

Still struggling to find her footing after the sudden death of her parents, the last thing college freshman Alessa has the strength to deal with is the inexplicable visceral pull drawing her to a handsome ghostly presence. In between grappling with exams and sorority soirees - and disturbing recurring dreams of being captive in a futuristic prison hell - Alessa is determined to unravel the mystery of the apparition who leaves her breathless. But the terrifying secret she uncovers will find her groping desperately through her nightmares for answers.

Because what Alessa hasn't figured out yet is that she's not really a student, the object of her obsession is no ghost, and her sneaking suspicions that something sinister is lurking behind the walls of her university's idyllic campus are only just scratching the surface...

The opening installment in a twist-laden trilogy, Stitch spans the genres of paranormal romance and dystopian sci-fi to explore the challenges of a society in transition, where morality, vision, and pragmatism collide leaving the average citizen to suffer the results." -Goodreads

This is probably one of the best sci-fi/ paranormal books I have read in a while. I can't get over how awesome it was.

I don't know how the author managed to do it. She mixed science fiction with paranormal and somehow, someway, bottled it up into an intricately written YA book. The author definitely has got plenty of talent.

One of the qualities of this book that really made it shine was the super complex plot. It was just so brilliant and unlike any other sci-fi/paranormal/YA book I have read. I never felt any sort of disinterest, and found it difficult to stop reading for more than a few seconds. Due to my immense need to know what occurred next, my eyes were constantly glued to the page.

The characters were alright. They were all pretty likable, and the character development was good, but I didn't care much for some of the characters. I did feel somewhat of a connection to the main character, and I do like her, but occasionally she was just a tad bit boring. This didn't have a huge impact on what I felt for the book, though.

I loved the sense of mystery that oozed off each page. It pushed me to keep reading, and currently leaves me craving the next installment. This book was very well-written, and showed that Samantha Durante is a very talented writer.

Stitch was an awesome read that combined the elements of mystery, suspense, and complexity into one very well-written novel. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.

If you are looking for a book with nonstop action and a blend of paranormal and science fiction, then you need to read this book. Now! 

Rating: 4/5 stars
