Thank you to the author for providing a free ebook copy of Eerie in exchange for an honest review!
I'm not really sure what to make of Eerie. I really enjoyed the beginning, but then after that it was a bit of a roller coaster for me. There are so many ups and downs that it made me dizzy trying to keep up. I really enjoyed the book, but there were things that I really disliked about it as well.
I like the main character, Hailey, and her personality is fantastic. However, she did drive me a little bit nuts because she seemed oddly accepting of all of the weird things going on. She would question things, but when she didn't receive any answers it's like she would then be like---Well gee, okay then! Weird things are happening, I have no answers, but eh let's just move on. What??
So there is a love triangle...and I hate both of the guys. Now, I am not a love triangle hater. I'm fine with it as long as it's done well. Which for me that means that I must like both of the love interests and understand why the MC is into both of them. Well both of these guys are horrible so the romance aspect really fell flat for me. Both of the guys are douchy and I ended up wishing Hailey would go lesbian for Giselle instead. Speaking of Giselle, I like her character a lot and she had me cracking up. That was one thing I really liked about the book for sure.
Another thing that I do like about Eerie is that it is definitely unique. I've never read a book about Envoys so that was definitely intriguing. The uniqueness of the book is definitely what kept me reading because that made it fun and I wanted to see where the story would go next. There is a lot of world building, which is great, but some of it did get tiresome to read in places. I really wish it was all condensed or something. Also, I really enjoyed the bit of Irish flair in the book.
Overall I liked Eerie, but I didn't love it. I am very split on this one. I can go back and forth with things that I liked and disliked for DAYS. I feel very 50/50 with this one. I did enjoy it though despite some issues. I wanted to rate it higher, but I just couldn't do it. Even though it is an enjoyable read, the issues are just too numerous.
I recommend Eerie for anyone looking for a unique YA/Fantasy/Paranormal read and doesn't mind love triangles.
