Grasping at Eternity by Karen Amanda Hooper

Grasping at Eternity (The Kindrily, #1)Leave it to Maryah Woodsen to break the one rule that will screw up eternity: Never erase your emories.

Before entering this life, Maryah did the unthinkable—she erased. Now, at seventeen years old, she’s clueless that her new adoptive family has known her for centuries, that they are perpetually reincarnated souls, and that they have supernatural abilities. Oh, and she's supposed to love (not despise) Nathan, the green-eyed daredevil who saved her life.

Nathan is convinced his family’s plan to spark Maryah's memory is hopeless, but his love for her is undying. After spending (and remembering) so many lifetimes together, being around an empty version of his soulmate is heart shattering. He hates acting like a stalker, but has no choice because the evil outcast who murdered Maryah in their last lifetime is still after her.

While Maryah’s hunter inches closer, she and Nathan make assumptions and hide secrets that rip them further apart. Maryah has to believe in the magic within her, Nathan must have faith in the power of their love, and both need to grasp onto the truth before they lose each other forever—and discover just how lonely eternity can be.

X-MEN meets MY NAME IS MEMORY in Karen Amanda Hooper’s latest young adult release.


*Note I received this book in exchange for an honest review*

From the very first page of Grasping of Eternity I knew that I would love this book. And I was right. This book got me hooked till the very last page. At first I thought that it was going to be another angel book, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. The whole idea of the book was very refreshing. And I’m dying to know more about the Kindrily. All characters were compelling I every chapter I wanted to find out more about them. I still feel like I don’t know them completely and I don’t think that they could possibly ever bore me. Maryah loses everything in the first chapter and her whole world gets turned upside down twice, but still she remains a positive girl. Nathaniel is just drop dead gorgeous and if he was a real life person than I would definitely want to know him. He’s a nice guy with his heart on the right place. Faith is the over happy girl in the group, she always sees everything on the bright side.
Throughout the story you could see Maryah grow and I think that she can achieve many things. I also loved that you got to know bit by bit pieces of her past, just like Maryah herself did. And I think that there are still many things to discover in the next book.
So I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!
