Source: I received an eARC of this book from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
I was attracted to this book because of the cover, it’s so unique and beautiful and the blurb definitely added to that interest, I enjoyed the ride.
Sophie’s father was a famous physicist before he disappeared from the face of Earth. Her mother rarely gives her any time and she is stuck with her obsessive step-father. When Sophie begins to feel that her father is trying to communicate with her, new hope starts building within her. Will she be able to save her father or will she end up putting herself into greater risk?
The plot was pretty enjoyable. I liked the concept of the multi-verse and how things were executed. Sophie wants to get away from her house as far as possible, away from her step father who appears obsessive and slightly dangerous. She misses her father very much who disappeared a long time ago, no one ever found out what actually happened to him. So when Sophie begins to see and hear things, she knows her father needs help.
The things that kept happening definitely piqued my interest. Eli is the only one she trusted. I liked the relationship between them and I definitely enjoyed the romance though I wish I could have seen more of the other two important characters as well. Also, I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if there was a bit more world-building which I found lacking. The ending left a lot of things to the reader’s imagination but I sooo wanted to know what happened next.
Overall, Membrane was a good read. The plot was executed neatly and I liked the characters though I would have liked more flavour to the characters but the plot was definitely enjoyable. It was a pretty quick read and I finished it in one setting. The writing was simple and smooth and the pace was even throughout the book.
Michele Corriel lives and works in Montana’s scenic Gallatin Valley, surrounded by seven mountain ranges.
Her work is as varied as the life she’s led, from the rock/art venues of New York City to the rural back roads of the Rockies. With her fourth book just out from Leap Books, she’s also a prolific freelance magazine writer with articles regionally, nationally and internationally. Michele has received a number of awards for her non-fiction as well as her poetry. She also enjoys teaching, presenting writing workshops and speaking on panels across the country.
When she’s not writing you may find her on the golf course, hiking or slogging her way through the snow on what some people like to refer to as “skis.” You might also find her in the kitchen creating exciting new flavors or recreating classics.
