Review ~ Duality by J Kowallis

Duality by J Kowallis
Genre: YA/New Adult, Scifi, Dystopian
Published November 18th 2016

Trust No One.
In this world, nothing is as it seems . . .

Reggie’s visions turn to horrifying hallucinations. For weeks she’s tortured with starvation and nightmares that vex her resolve. Her only companion is a mysterious shadow—a figure with no shape, no substance—that seems to have a mind of its own. It’s a presence that prickles her memories and plants a feeling of familiar dread in her mind.
Where she is, she doesn’t know, and the organization delving into her mind is more threatening than ever before.

With the help of shady contacts from his past, Nate struggles to travel half way around the world, facing his own demons and dreadful revelations. But when a stranger joins the team, the duality of this newcomer's actions sets everyone on edge, leading them through a trial one of them . . . will not survive.

Terrific third book for the series! I have just one criticism... it had been so long since I read the first two books that it took me a long time, and a lot of confusion the first fourth of the book, before I began to piece together what happened from my memories. More flashbacks, more recaps of what happened previously would have been helpful. Other than that.... 

Just as captivating as the first two... but far more heartbreaking.

Please tell me the end events aren't permanent, that a certain character comes back in the next book! The preview for Dominion kinda seemed like it features this character, oh please tell me they come back! Please! 

This character was the glue... for both the story and for many of the relationships... they can't be dead for good... can they?

I NEEED the next book!




J. Kowallis, the only girl of four children, grew up in northern Utah with a head full of wild stories (most often unreal). At the age of 9, she wrote her first poem, a dedication to E.B. White's Charlotte's Web. It was so intriguing, her Third Grade teacher requested to keep the original (THAT is a true story!). Between living in fictional worlds, she managed to graduate from Weber State University’s creative writing program. She now lives in Utah with her Mini Schnauzer, Etta, and spends most of her time still bouncing between this world and the fantastical while enjoying delectable ├╝ber-dark chocolate and lavender baths. She enjoys dreaming about, flying to, and writing about distant lands (real or unreal).
