Review The Wanderers

The Wanderers by Jessica Miller

Book One in The Wanderers Series

Bookologists Analysis: This book picks up with mystery and romance as it rolls
New Adult (just a warning, there is some mature content)

Thank you to the author Jessica Miller for the e-copy she gave to me. It’s greatly appreciated.

What do you do when you learn your family is the one who's holding all the secrets? Secrets that could get you killed... 

Ella is looking forward to starting college in the fall with her best friend Josie. She’s looking for a place where she can get away from her overbearing parents and two older annoying brothers. Unfortunately Ella realizes that sometimes the past comes back to haunt you. 

Ella soon learns that the man who terrorizes her dreams is in fact real and coming after her. 

When one of her classmates is murdered, Ella slowly recognizes this is not some strange coincidence. Ella fears that the boy she’s falling in love with is the one who stalks her dreams and no longer knows who she can trust. 

When she finally learns the truth of her families’ deepest secret, Ella has to face her demons by taking out one of the people she thought she could trust…before they kill her.

This book’s title seems to be following the usual trend to pick titles that are not related to the actual subject of the book such as Shadow and Bone, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, or you get the idea. The book in the beginning is quite slow as it is just a typical story of a girl going to university getting over the death of a boyfriend. It really picks up with Tristan (are they mates?? is that a thing in the vampire world).

This book starts off as a slow read that makes you want to quit the book, but hold on I promise it’s a great book. Ella ends up at college with her best friend Josie and they end up rooming together without planning to. There is this cute guy named Tristan down the hall is an obvious player, but he still is pursuing Ella. She tries to resist his charms, but what would a romance book be without romance, after all?

I liked the writing after all and it was actually a tolerable book in ebook form. Most books I just lose interest in them over a couple of days because flipping pages has a certain feel to it (despite it being unsustainable). This book the romance triangle was believable with her best friend also finding a really cute guy named Billy (where do authors come up with these names?). I also liked the gay guy because putting minorities in is very good. This was a superb supernatural college romance book that picks up right in the middle.

The decision to fall in love is an abrupt one that Ella only makes after doing the stupid thing and spending time with Tristan. I found that kind of unrealistic, but it was okay because they were meant for each other. This book was an absolute doll in its way of unveiling the mysterious world of NA vampire novels.
