Glimpse
by Sara Daniell
Series: The Dwellers #1
Genre: YA - Dystopian
Purchase: Paperback | Kiddle

Orion Draper is not your typical Dweller. She is a non-conformist with an insatiable appetite for adventure. And trouble. So it is no surprise when she finds herself eavesdropping on a Constable meeting. One word that makes no sense, "Earth", sends Orion on a quest for answers.
What is this "Earth"? And why has it never been mentioned before? Her search is soon over, but not without a heavy price to pay. Forced to leave behind the only home she has ever known, Orion fights for the chance to return. Every corner holds a new danger, and every shadow hides a secret. No one can be trusted, and no town is permanent.
Will Orion ever return to Dandux? Or is she forever condemned to repeat this hell she now knows?


*I received this book from the author as part of the blog book tour. I have not received any reward for my review, this contains my most honest thoughts.* 
My thoughts
I just loved, I want wishing to read something like this but I haven't find anything until now, and I'm more than happy of have read it. But I want to be honest, at first sight I was hoping to find something more... dark. I was totally wrong the history is just hilarious, intense and with a love-hate relationship that had me on the edge from start to finish. 
Sometimes felt the story was a little fast from chapter to chapter, and this is where must I do a stop and explain myself. If you are a person who like slow stories and details of almost every second that happens, this story is not for you, but if instead you're like me and you like fast stories, in which the story progresses and light without major entanglements, this book is strongly recommended for you.
Orion is a fearless girl says when she thinks it is. One of the things I most liked about her was her sense of humor, mixing it with the personality of Plath, the hottie who saved his live mo than twice, turn out to be a perfect odd couple.
What I can say? I wanted have a paperback edition! I enjoyed this book as I did some time ago, I laughed as could be though in the end there were several parts that made cracks in my heart.

My rating: 4/5
Interview
Please tell us a little bit about you.  Who is Sara Daniell?

I am a 27 year old wife and mother.  I have two amazing daughters, one 6 and the other 1 year old.  I am currently going to college to get my Masters degree in Special Education.  I have published four books.  The Holly Nather Trilogy (Visions, Secrets, and Choices) and Glimpse, book one of The Dwellers series. 

I am obsessed with Coke and Twix – together.  Best snack EVER. 

What is your favorite part of the writing process?

When I finish the first draft of a book.  This is my favorite part because then I have something to work with and perfect.  Until that first draft is done, you have nothing to work with.  

Describe your book in your own words.
On a quest for answers, Dweller Orion Draper finds herself trapped on a strange planet known as Earth.  Fighting to return to the world that she left behind, every corner holds new dangers and every shadow a secret.  Orion wonders if she will ever get to return home to Dandux, or if she will be condemned this hell she now knows. Forever. 

Where did you get the idea to write Glimpse?
I can’t pinpoint the exact thing that inspired me to write Glimpse.  I had been playing with the idea of the story line for a while but couldn’t get anything to really make sense.  Then one day, the whole story came to me.   

Can you share with us your favorite non-spoiler quote or scene from Glimpse?
        He looks down at his feet, and then looks up at me with a playful grin. He slowly walks towards me, slowly taking off his jacket.  He then slowly removes his shirt, exposing his bare chest. As he gets closer he runs his hands through his hair and bites his bottom lip. Oh my damn, he is hot. I swear the temperature in here is rising as he gets only inches away from me.  He cups my face in his hands, and I am too shocked to pull away. He brings his lips close, gently brushing them against mine.  He smiles against my lips and starts laughing, quickly pulling away. 
        “You were going to let me kiss you?!” He asks in pure shock, while still laughing.
        I look away.  Embarrassed as hell.  “No I wasn’t!”
        “Yes you were. Don’t lie.” He has a cocky smile plastered across his face.
        “Go put on your shirt.” I say while not making eye contact with him.
        “Sorry I know my sexy body can be intimidating.”  He is seriously amused by this.
        I roll my eyes and take off my shoes.  “I never said anything about your body being attractive.  It is just weird you standing here, shirtless.” 

Are there any songs you could list as the theme of this book or any of your characters?
Barton Hallow by The Civil Wars

Can you give any details about the second part in The Dwellers series?
It is called Sway.  I hope to have it released by spring 2013.  

How many books do you have planned in The Dwellers Series?
I am not sure yet. I should have a better idea of how many after Sway is done.
