Pyxis: The Discovery by K.C.Neal.

Corinne lives an average teenage life working at her dad’s cafe, hanging out with her best friend, and trying to forget a falling-out with her almost-boyfriend Mason. Things take a strange turn when she uses her late grandmother’s food dyes for a bake sale, and her customers suddenly find her irresistibly alluring. Then she discovers she and Mason are haunted by the same dreams of a dark force that consumes everything in its path. 

Pursued by shadowy figures and a crazy woman with secrets from the past, Corinne must find out who her grandmother really was. In her quest to unravel her family’s history, she learns she is destined to protect this world--and the dark world of her dreams. She races to find the answers she seeks before her nightmares break free.

  So, I was sent this book on my kindle to review and since I started reading it just before the end of my exams during the dark age of no reading, it took me a while to get through.
  First off, I did enjoy this book; it had a good concept and it was written well, although, to me, it felt a bit wooden at times and I didn't feel connected with the characters, which was a shame because the concept was something new and unique, but I guess that it might be a better book for the younger teens - a 12-14 age range perhaps, but, although I thought it was a good book, I wasn't really exstatic about it - but maybe that's just me! So don't let that put you off if this is something you're interested in.
  Another thing that came to my attention was that in this book, not much happened really, although it did start to pick up at the end; but when things started to get really interesting and there was more action, it was pretty much the end of the book - but again, that may just be me being an adrenaline junky.
  So, overall, although it wasn't really my thing, it was still a good book and I think it would be great for the age range I previously mentioned.

*** 3/5 stars ***
