Synopsis:  
At eighteen there is one thing Kate Ericson is certain of—the world is at war and has been since she was two years old. That was when her father pulled her family and a group of close friends to a God forsaken place in the middle of nowhere. For Kate there is no escape from the sea of lies she is drowning in until her world collides with Hunter Marks—the son of her father's biggest opponent. An opponent that Kate didn't even know existed. What Hunter kidnaps Kate for, and what her family will try to kill her to keep secret, is a knowledge that she doesn't have. Now Kate’s innocence seems to becoming undone at the seams of reality. Hunter then finds himself fighting the hopelessness that is creeping into the edges of her heart as she learns more about the corruption that has devoured their lives. As Hunter and Kate forge a strong and unique relationship it becomes clear that their love is something that the bureaucracy never expected, and that Hunter's father will do whatever he can to destroy it. Hunter believes he must sacrifice love in order to teach Kate that the world's deadliest weapon is her. Hunter and Kate will have to find the strength to rise above a deception that is so great, even the ones who created it don't realize its depth.

In Between Seasons is a new kind of post-apocalyptic novel, one that focuses on the characters and uses the lack of understanding of a corrupt world as the backdrop to shape them into who they are as people.
 



My Review:  
This is going to be a quick, short review. The most that I can say about this book is that try it yourself. I personally did not care for it. 

The characters were not well written out, neither was the plot. 

There was a few things were okay like the ending. 

But as you know this is only my thoughts on the book and or author. 

As I normally say on this type or this rating: Please don't let my opinion alone decide your view of this book or author. What does not work for me may very well be the greatest for you. So pick it up at your local library or store and check it out for your self. Then feel free to come back and let me know what you think.


But other than that this is my Breath of Life rating of this book: 


Two Clock Rating!!

Disclosure: I did not receive this book in exchange for my review. But the opinions are mine, your opinion may differ, and that is fine with me.
