REVIEWS
"Amazing! Sundial is an incredible adventure of a book! I loved it from page one. The authors keep the readers on their toes, especially in the end of a book. The plot just gets thicker and thicker..." - Carole, The Life of Fiction

"Fantastic read!...there was never a quiet moment in the book and I was always guessing what would happen next. Sundial had me from the first page, and I was lost in its pages." - Erika, Moonlight Review

"Loved it! PG Young Adult Romantic Intrigue! I really recommend this one, as an adult lover of young adult fiction. Great characters and plot, and romance without making me blush...” - Busy Busy (Amazon review)

SUMMARY
It is 1988 and teenager Whitney Forbes thought her biggest problem was surviving high school and determining if there was more to handsome Reid Wallace than just his looks and popularity. She was wrong. Her problems were about to get a lot more complicated.

Whitney always knew she was special. But when she discovers she is more “special” than she ever imagined, surviving another school day outside her posh D.C. suburb takes on a whole new meaning. Caught in the middle of a CIA plot and her undeniable magnetic attraction to Reid, she will need to decide who she can trust and what it means to become the Sundial…before she risks her heart and an alarming plan goes into motion.

Sundial is an epic adventure full of romantic intrigue that questions the bonds of love and trust as well as social and economic issues. It unflinchingly dares its characters to overcome adversity to survive and nothing is quite as it seems in this character driven suspense that has a high intensity ending!

Sundial is a 2012 nominee for the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) "Adventure Seekers" category and is the first book in The Light Bringer series. Book Two of the series, The Light Bringer's Way, was released July 2012.

HASH(0x9b432e04) out of 5 stars Good Idea, But Has Some Flaws Oct. 21 2011
By Andrea T - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I read the synopsis for Sundial, I was definitely curious. A girl with unique abilities who is involved with secret government agencies sounded like a good time. When you add in a good-looking, mysterious guy? Even better.

I'll start with what I liked about Sundial. I thought that the idea behind the story was very interesting and extremely intelligent. The fact that so much apparent thought and brain power went into writing this book is what appealed to me the most. I wasn't quite sure what was behind Whitney and Reid's extra abilities, but then, I like a mystery.

There were a few characters in Sundial that I really liked. Whitney was strong, capable, and definitely not a whiner. I also liked Reid. He seemed to be very much like Whitney, super smart, athletic, capable. Both Whitney and Reid really seem to have it all. Whitney's best friend Blair was undoubtedly the most fun character to read. She was funny, a little pushy and could be frivolous. Those aspects to Blair made her the perfect counterpart to Blair, who was ever practical.

So, here's the hard part, because I have to admit, there were a few things about Sundial that I had issues with. Starting with, the characters. I know I said I liked Whitney, Blair and Reid, and I did. But it seemed that every single character was rich, athletic, smart, just too perfect. There was a lot of clothing and accessory labels mentioned that I had never heard of. Maybe I'm lame, I dunno. That made it hard for me to identify or empathize with them. To be fair, maybe the area in which Sundial is set is exclusively wealthy. But still, hard to identify with.

Another issue I had was the transitioning between paragraphs. For example, several times Whitney would suddenly pass out at the end of the chapter. Then, in one instance, at the beginning of the next chapter, she and Reid are on a boat with friends and she's mad that another girl is coming on to him. That left me flipping back and forth, making sure the pages weren't stuck, or missing. I found that to be very disorienting and distracting.

So. I've been trying to sum up exactly how I felt about Sundial. I didn't dislike it, but I had issues. Issues I could just not overlook. I still think it was a very interesting idea with a lot of potential.

Favorite Quote:

" 'You are no ordinary girl but you are still a teenage girl,' Dr. West said with a twinkle in his eye. 'Love is
something no of us have any training for, but love and empathy are what make us uniquely human.' "

HASH(0x9b54cea0) out of 5 stars Couldn't finish it Aug. 26 2012
By B. Kirby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I picked this book up as part of a free promotion for the book. I felt that it started off very strong. The dialoge may have a been a bit too good, but it was entertaining. This a true especially for the dialogue between Whitney and Reid. As the story progressed, it began to wane and slow down. Every chapter was another boat ride or another fancy get-together. I just tired of the same occurrences. The end of each chapter would hint at something coming...but it didn't come quick enough and I gave up on the book. I just could not finish it. It was very easy to read so I have no complaints there. I just wish it had moved at a quicker pace.

HASH(0x9b3eb57c) out of 5 stars A fun, page-turning read! July 10 2011
By Running mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A truly fun, well-written and suspenseful book! The main character, Whitney, is a fiercely independent and strong willed heroine - a very likeable character. The authors not only do a fantastic job of capturing the tension of a budding romance between Whitney and Reid, but they also keep the reader intrigued with unexpected storyline plots of secret CIA operative missions and food allergy twists. I found myself cheering on Whitney and Reid as they bravely tackled each new obstacle. I look forward to the next book!

HASH(0x9b28c1d4) out of 5 stars Not great May 11 2013
By Megustaleer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The author had an interesting concept, but told more than illustrated the story. There were problems with the facts. For example, Africa is a continent and there is no language called African. There are many countries in Africa and each one has multiple languages. Too much of the book focused on an immature crush and not enough on the sci-fi concepts.

HASH(0x9ba4045c) out of 5 stars Like the local town theatre group doing Chekov Feb. 28 2012
By S. D. Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thought I would try a free, self published ebook and give it a go. I know why this was free. The idea is ok, and kudos to the authors for their commitment to writing and publishing their book - better than I have managed. The problem is that the writing is so amateurish. The thesaurus got a heavy workout and let's see how many 80's brands we can remember. I liked the main character overall, but the amount of poorly written dross to get through was terrible. Maybe I am not the target market for this, but the first half was some weird teenage love story that I am guessing was the authors rewriting their high school days with what they wished they had said and done.i kept waiting for the book to actually get somewhere.
This appears to be the first one star rating so there are many people who liked it but I was not one of them.
