Stitch by Samantha Durante Review & Giveaway

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...

The opening installment in a twist-laden trilogy, Stitch spans the genres of paranormal romance and dystopian sci-fi to explore the challenges of a society in transition, where morality, vision, and pragmatism collide leaving the average citizen to suffer the results.

Stitch is the story of Alessa. The former perfect grade A student, until her life was thrown into chaos. Both her patents were tragically killed in a car accident during her senior year of high school and naturally it has left Alessa broken. Starting college is daunting enough, so when she is assigned a campus sorority, thankful not having to live in the lifeless standard dorm rooms, until she sees what appears to be a ghost... Or is it?

On a mission to discover the history of the house and the connection to the ghost who wears turn of the century attire, Alessa's entire existence is blown apart and life as she knows it may not be the reality that she quite expects.

Well written and the plot twists will not only surprise you, they'll blow you away.You can't give this book the review it deserves without giving away the surprising, yet shocking, storyline.
