Secrets and survival in the Amazon
Emily Duran is the sole survivor of a plane crash that left her and her teenage friends stranded and alone in the jungles of the Amazon. Lost and losing hope, they struggle against the elements, and each other. With their familiar pecking order no longer in place, a new order emerges, filled with power struggles, betrayals, secrets and lies. Emily must explain why she’s the last left alive.
But can she carry the burden of the past?
Discover the gripping new adventure novel that explores who we are when no one is watching, and how far we’ll go in order to survive.
Emily wakes in the drowning waters of the Amazon, not able to recall what had just happened to her. Then to her surprise, she’s not alone. There’s a small band of survivors that managed to live through the horrible plane crash. They set out to find a village, desperate for help. They trek through the Amazon, unaware that the real danger isn’t what creatures are found deep inside the deadly rainforest, or the starvation that gnaws at their bellies. The real danger is much worse than that.
This book had me hooked at page one. Emily Duran is the sole survivor of a plane crash. We’re first introduced to Emily as she is healing from her encounter deep in the Amazon, a place that brought out much more than fear in Emily. James Morris tells the story through a series of flash backs, giving us bits and pieces of the story as it unfolds. Throughout the book I couldn’t help but keep asking “What happened to Emily?” “What happened to the other survivors?” Eager for the answers, I finished this book in one day. These characters literally transformed on the page, from who they were, to the survivors on the Amazon. And their transformation is truly the beauty in Feel Me Fall. Not to mention it had quite a marvelous ending.
This survival story is gripping and intense, with quite a few unexpected turns. Layer by layer, James Morris reveals to us just a little more of each of the characters that has you questioning their morality and honesty as you race to finish the ending. This book is fast paced, and places you on the edge of your seat. Each character has their own story to tell, and each of them demands to be heard. Their past, their present… They’re the kind of characters whose story seems to leap of the page.
If you like stories that are suspenseful and intense, filled with amazing characters, a captivating survival story, and a kick ass ending, then be sure to check out Feel Me Fall!
