Reality by Dani Hart ~Review~

Book Title: Reality: The Life of Arie series (book 1)

Author: Dani Hart

Genre:  YA (mature 15+) Urban Fantasy Romance

I am Arie Belle and up until my mother’s unexpected and mysterious death my life had been pretty simple, but then things became dark and, at times, hopeless.  Even my uncanny ability to communicate with nature had turned its back on me.  My only saving grace is my lifetime friendship with the boy next door, River, whom I had always thought of as my soul mate up until my eighteenth birthday when everything seemed to change.  My body tingles with heightened sensations and my emotions veer out of control.  They are further tested when Ashe, a beautiful stranger with a powerful draw, enters my life and challenges my heart and soul.  Amidst the rush of feelings after years of numbness, my true destiny slowly unravels and my journey to find out what I am, to find my mother’s killer, and stop my own death becomes a frantic rush before the next full moon.

This powerful story encaptures the true meaning of love and the dark corners of life that can either suck you in or save you.

My passion for writing started at a very young age.  It started with a multitude of diaries as soon as I could, then poetry, then short stories.  I received my BA at USC in Theatre with an unofficial minor in writing.  While at USC I wrote my first screenplay and post-graduation I was hired to write another screenplay, which I did successfully.   Life got busy again and my passion was pushed aside, but then I met an amazing person who loved my story and encouraged me to start writing again. With that said, I am in a happier place now.  I am fulfilling my inner desire and passion to write.  I just self-published book one in The Life of Aries series and am currently working on book two.  I am also working on an adult dark romance.

I was given a copy of Reality by Love Romance books in exchange for an honest review.

I liked this book. It was a good fantasy story. Arie is a great character. I really enjoyed how she grew and had to figure out things about her mother’s death. She has this connection with nature and her only saving person is her best friend River. Then she meets Ashe and he challenges Arie. She wants to find her mother’s killer and stop her own death before the next full moon. I thought this book was intriguing and interesting and I really enjoyed the way the book flowed. I look forward to the next book in this series. I give it 5 out 5 stars!
