Synopsis: 
The McClellands are enjoying a lazy summer vacation at the beach when they are lured from our world into Ixeos, an alternate Earth. Finding themselves lost in a maze of tunnels under Paris and surrounded by strangers, they discover that they have been brought to Ixeos for one purpose: to take the planet back from humanoid aliens who have claimed it. With the aid of the tunnels and a mysterious man named Landon, the teens travel the world seeking the key that will allow them to free Darian, the long-imprisoned rebel leader. But the aliens aren't the only problem on Ixeos -- the McClellands have to deal with brutal gangs, desperate junkies, and a world without power, where all the technology is owned by the aliens, and where most of the population has been killed or enslaved. The worst part? There's no way home.  


My Review:  
I will start this with saying that author Jennings Wright done it again for me! This is my second book I have read of hers and I was not disappointed at all. Totally drawn into the the story line and the amazing characters that are "Lured" to another world.

 I could so imagine my family playing around on the beach and then to have us taken to what might be describe as another world but it is much like ours. Then to start traveling around the world is only a dream for me, but playing it out in my mind through the descriptions with in the pages of this book was AWESOME! 

From terror, anticipation, loss, no power, to load of other feelings that this book takes you are not only suspenseful for you but knowing that there is NO GOING HOME!  Come on, everyone wants to Go Home some time within their life span. 

I have totally fallen for books that take me into another realm so to speak. Even though I am not one to believe in such, I can still sink my teeth into an amazingly awesomely, well written story and play out the craziness with in that book. We all need to do so every now and then just like we did in the fairy tales of old. And author Jennnings Wright has completely caught my attention for the details and the love she shows not only for her story line but for her characters. Thank you Author Jennings Wright for allowing me to play out some craziness and fantasy with in your books.


So as all of my readers know I will not get with in the totally book and tell you all the story. That is for you to do. But I will recommend that my young adult and my fantasy readers grab this book and start reading. I am so looking forward to furthering my jouney with the McClellands and their possible solutions to their time with in this series. 

With all that being said I am so honored to read and to review this amazing, exciting author Jennings Wrights book, IXEOS!

I  recommend this to all my Thrill Seeking readers as well. Pick it up today and please let me know what you think.      


So due to the above, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of: 

Five Clock Rating!!!  
Disclosure: I did receive this book for my honest opinion and review. But these opinions are my own and yours may differ.
