ARC Review: EPOCH by Jewel E. Ann

Some lives end unfinished, and some transcend time.

After a horrific incident, Swayze finds herself trapped between two lives. Patchy memories and fear for her own safety thrust her into a gut-wrenching journey to uncover the truth.

Will she let her dreams slip away to seek retribution and find the missing pieces to a puzzle that existed a lifetime ago?

“I’m not going to watch you self-destruct. I’m not going to watch you fall in love with another man.”

Or will she discover the only truth that matters?

Epoch pushes the boundaries of what we believe and what we know. It redefines fate and proves that the only thing separating the heart and the soul is an infinite timeline.

“I think a part of you will be mine to love in every life.”

REVIEW


My rating: 4 of 5 stars


“I think a part of you will be mine to love in every life.”

Who wouldn’t swoon over those words? Any of us would be blessed to be loved like that. However, this story made my heart bleed. I hurt and struggled and ached for almost 90% of this book. Why oh why oh why was this author torturing me so? My heart belonged to Griffin. He could do absolutely no wrong in my eyes. But he was only human and his compassion and understanding, although virtually limitless, weren’t endless.

“I said I would protect you. I promised to keep you safe. You were my world, even if I wasn’t yours.” - Griffin

Gah!! This is after suffering through the pain of Swayze’s confusion, her distance, and the emotional toll her journey was putting him through. And yet, he still loved her. All I wanted to do was punch this young lady in the face. Sometimes. I just wasn’t a fan of what she put Griffin through. Nate didn’t have it easy from her either. She was playing with people’s hearts and it made her an unsympathetic character in my eyes. However, she was the perfect piece of drama for this story. She was the angst, the turmoil, and the pain. So I think the way she was made worked well.

My heart still aches. I’m happy and yet I’m sad. When more than two characters are involved, chances are someone’s gonna get hurt, so I was expecting it. Doesn’t mean I have to love it. This author did an excellent job of keeping me entertained with this story and putting me through the wringer. Epoch was a bittersweet depiction of love everlasting.
