Fantasy Book Review: Earthbound

Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike

Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told.

Tavia immediately searches for answers, desperate to determine why she feels so drawn to a boy she hardly knows. But when Tavia discovers that the aunt and uncle who took her in after her parents’ death may have actually been responsible for the plane crash that killed them–and that she may have been the true intended victim–she flees for the safety of Camden, Maine, where the boy she sees in her visions instructs her to go.

Now, Tavia is on the run with no one to trust. No one, that is, except for her best friend and longtime crush, Benson.

Tavia feels torn between the boy who mysteriously comes to her at night and the boy who has been by her side every step of the way. But what Tavia doesn’t know is that the world is literally falling apart and that to save it she will have to unite with the boy in her visions. Only problem? To do so would mean rejecting Benson’s love. And that’s the one thing Tavia Michaels swore she’d never do.

Tavia has gone through incredible trauma, emotionally and physically. She attends therapy regularly, but her only friend is Benson – since she moved to a new town and left behind her old life completely. But when she begins to see strange things and experience strange phenomenon, Tavia begins to suspect those closest to her. And she and Benson flee.

But Tavia isn’t an ordinary girl. And she has a destiny, regardless of her feelings towards Benson. The beginning is mysterious and confusing, but we learn along with Tavia towards the end of the novel what’s really going on. This is the first in a new series of fantasy, super powers, and romance. Earthbound is a surprising story with plenty of twists, mystery, drama, and heart-pounding suspense.
