Great new author Book was amazing Couldn t put it down, and keeps you wantingLooking forward to book number two in the series I couldn t wait to receive my copy of The Sentient and I m glad when I did finally get it To start, The Sentient, is an easy read and it falls outside of the usual fantasy paranormal romance parameters set by the mainstream It is a refreshing mature take on this genre I was surprised by the book.Anna, our heroine, is nurse at a birthing center undergoing life changing circumstances and tragedy In her attempt at juggling loss she tries to focus on her work only to be drawn to a patient named I couldn t wait to receive my copy of The Sentient and I m glad when I did finally get it To start, The Sentient, is an easy read and it falls outside of the usual fantasy

circumstances and tragedy In her attempt at juggling loss she tries to focus on her work only to be drawn to a patient named Cassandra who begs her to take her baby to keep him safe When Anna is interrupted by Cassandra s brother, she leaves with a feeling of I should have doneWith this feeling tugging at her, Anna can t help but become all Nancy Drew love Nancy Drew by the way and it s a major compliment and try to find out if Cassandra is ok And this is where the story truly picks up and we are swept away into the lives of the Dorn family They are no ordinary family, and unfortunately I can t spoil it for you because I don t even know what type of species Nor would I want to because this is a book that you should read Anna embarks on journey of discovery, from meeting the handsome Jameson Cassandra s other brother to the very creepy children of Victor and Zahira, and learning about The Sentient, makes you the reader feel like a fly on the wall The Dorn Family and their past feels very American Gothic and I love it.To be honest, I really enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to read book 2 I hope it answers all the questions that I have regarding the Dorn family and I hope to see the forbidden romance between Jameson and Anna blossom The only downside to this book is that I felt it could ve beendescriptive of the physical features of the characters I am sure book 2 will satisfy.Well done Jessica Crawford I look forward to readingfrom you Don t really have a full review for this, here s some scattered notes Nothing wrong with it, but perhaps not my thing Nothing particularly interesting, slow moving, no real atmosphere Despite being very character focused, there is ENTIRELY no character development Nothing really to enjoy but the characters of Reza

personality besides obvious villain There s no moral grey area or anything about them that doesn t scream obvious the cause of the bad things in the world The writing is fine, good, nice I enjoyed the little diary entires at the start of each chapter that show something had happened and left our MC alone, it added a little suspense and mystery It kept me wanting to read to discover what huge thing could have happened but the truth is actually lackluster.The love interest in the book thankfully isn t a LOVE interest, but they have sex, and he is really quite bland.The end has a little hook in it for a sequel, but it feels a bit cheap and not particularly exciting.This book is okay The genre, notably, is very different from my typical tastes I picked this up because it was free, sounded a bit dumb from the backcover text, and was short My mother actually looked at the book while I was reading it and said the backcover text sounded fascinating, so again, It probably just Isn t My Kind Of Tale The Sentient is one of those books that has you hook right from the first sentence, not from the first action scene or the fist bantering argument, but the first sentence I d give this book 3.5 stars, Jessica Crawford writes amazing characters that takes you on the journey there going through, but I m one of those people that like to know all information in the type of species, etc In my opinion The Sentient doesn t have enough information, it s all limited from the protagonist s point of view The Sentient is one of those books that has you hook right from the first sentence, not from
