Blurb (from Goodreads):
This is the story of a boy lost without a girl he has loved across five universes.
Finding Me introduced Chloe Carmichael and her inability to recall her past lives, including her love for Christopher Thomas. Finding Her is a novella from the perspective of Chris set right before he meets Chloe for the first time on Earth.
Christopher Thomas is on a journey. He has searched for years for the love of his life, Amanda Graves. He’s on a race to find her before their mutual enemy, The ENO. Because if the ENO captures her first, everything will be lost: love, life, and everyone in the known universe.
My excitement knew no bounds when I woke up the next morning after posting my review of Finding Me and saw that the author has sent me this novella as well the sequel to Finding Me. This was indeed an awsome surprise! 😀
This book was short and sweet. It was told from one of the main character- Chris’s POV. We learn about his frantic search for Amanda. He is already deeply in love with her as he always has been for the past five universe. But this time, it’s different, usually when they reach the age of thirteen, they remember their previous lives and find their way back to one another but this time, this hadn’t happened. Amanda had not came back.
Finally when Chris tries one of the last place where she might be, he finally finds her but this girl is known as Chloe Carmichael and she doesn’t remember a bit about her previous lives but Chris is convinced it is her.
It was quite a bit refreshing learning things from his point of view, how much he wanted her but he had to hold himself back. Some of the scattered thoughts and pieces that Chloe heard in Finding Me are also cleared up as we actually see the conversation between Chris and his friends/team.
The writing is smooth and the pages flew by easily.
Reading this novella is not that much necessary but if you really liked Finding Me, then you could give it a try.
