Kenzie Brooks needs to vanish.
All she has ever known is a string of misconceptions, including her name. Upon her mother’s passing, Kenzie is left with no other choice but to disappear without a trace from all she has ever known which is The Society.
She must vanish.
Will Kenzie be able to fool The Society into thinking she’s dead? Or will they put the pieces together and discover she’s learned the truth about where she came from?
***In exchange for an honest review, I received an ARC of Dissipate from Kristin Mayer and InkSlinger PR***
First off, this was a deja vue book for me. Not the names, necessarily, but the concept. At least the first few chapters. Whether it was similar to a movie, or a dream, Kristin Mayer put it into words.
Kenzie Brooks, aka Sarah, was raised in what we would call a cult. Daily life was restrictive and as a woman demeaning to today’s standards, and she is expected to obey without question. When her mother passes away from a mysterious illness, she learns the awful truth. Sarah is who she was at the moment, but she had always been Kenzie.
Literally running for her life, Kenzie enters into a brave new world following her mother’s last words. What I loved most about the characters is that they seemed real. Knowing people who have escaped the clutches of someone like the Keeper, Kristin brought Kenzie’s journey to life. Entering the college world of the Razorbacks, Kristin doesn’t diminish, or dwell on the good and bad of what can happen in a fraternity/sorority, but she doesn’t skip over it either. It was refreshing for her to put it out there in a way that didn’t judge.
The main characters Kenzie, Aiden, Brooklyn, Mike and Matthew are believable and give one hope for a happily ever after. Of course, the bad guy has to make an appearance, but in this case, he is a really, really bad guy with a gun. I absolutely love the twists and turns within the story and though I found a few editing errors, wish Kristin Kelley had expanded the novel to full length and given us more. Oh, and you can get your copy today to find out whether Kenzie or Sarah - Dissipates.
