Her heart races, her muscles coil, and every impulse in Alessa’s body screams at her to run… but yet she’s powerless to move.
Still struggling to find her footing after the sudden death of her parents, the last thing college freshman Alessa has the strength to deal with is the inexplicable visceral pull drawing her to a handsome ghostly presence. In between grappling with exams and sorority soirees – and disturbing recurring dreams of being captive in a futuristic prison hell – Alessa is determined to unravel the mystery of the apparition who leaves her breathless. But the terrifying secret she uncovers will find her groping desperately through her nightmares for answers.
Because what Alessa hasn’t figured out yet is that she’s not really a student, the object of her obsession is no ghost, and her sneaking suspicions that something sinister is lurking behind the walls of her university’s idyllic campus are only just scratching the surface…

→ Opinion | Stitch had a very original concept, but it lacked character development and a more balanced plot structure.
I’m sad that there is very little romance to talk about. I couldn’t connect with Isaac, we had very little time inside his mind. I wish we could’ve seen the moment where they fell in love, or that the author made them fall in love again. I sense that love will play a big part in the future, but we were only allowed to see a glimpse of it.
The story begins very slow paced with only tiny developments in the story till we reach chapter 22. By then there’s only 40% of the book left, and that’s when things get interesting. A lot of questions weren’t proposed and most of the ones who did weren’t answered. I expected more from this first book in the trilogy. i wanted more sci-fi The prose was good though, I was curious enough to read it till the end.
I enjoyed that we had a mild closure, a conclusion without a cliffhanger, but a satisfying one.
This debut has a great potential, but unfortunately, is overshadowed by a lot of elements that didn’t quite work out. The next installments in this series can be very promising if the same errors don’t happen again. This series deserves to have it’s chance to shine!
