The Summer Solstice by K K Allen

Title: The Summer Solstice – The Summer Solstice Book 1The Summer Solstice

Author: K K Allen

Rating: 5/5

Kat lived with her Mum, never having contact with any other relatives. She was also home schooled so when her Mum tragically dies, Summer initially lives with foster parents and attends High School where she struggles to ‘fit in’ and be accepted. Then she goes to live with her Grandmother, Rose, and her companion, Charlotte, neither of whom she has met before. She is full of trepidation as she discovers just how huge her new home is and how wealthy is her Grandmother. Kat isn’t a materialistic girl, she’s nervous about fitting in, starting yet another new school, making friends and her new life and expectations. Not surprising she starts having nightmares, is it? The story unfolds through Kat’s experiences and so the reader learns alongside Kat about her secret heritage, magic and mystical powers!

This is a great story about a teenager’s coming of age. It involves Greek mythology, a goddess, good v evil and secrets slowly being revealed. It is a brilliant start to a new series and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is supposedly written for young adults but is still really enjoyable for not so young adults, too! I’ll be looking out for the next books in this series soon!

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review.
