Book Description:

A million thoughts, but only one right thing to do.

Eighteen-year-old Serenity Ashdown has a brilliant mind: she counts, calculates, and analyzes everything, all the time. Awkward. When her father suddenly disappears, Serenity follows his trail to a parallel dimension. The feds on the other side claim to want to help her go home, if she helps them reconstruct the right codes for the portal between worlds. But it’s soon clear they want something more: a gateway for invasion, because this version of Earth is dying.

​When Serenity learns that her alter-ego was killed in battle, she assumes “the other Serenity’s” identity and uses her unique abilities to lead the resistance in a mortal fight against the tyrannical super-government that is poised to invade her universe. Serenity has no idea how to be someone she’s not, but she has to try—or she may not have a home to return to.

My Review: 

I have had the pleasure of reading previous books by Bryan K Prosek and was excited to have the opportunity to read his release, A Measure of Serenity. I was not disappointed and enjoyed reading this story. I am not a huge sci fi and fantasy fiction fan, but glad that I wanted to give this one a chance. I really liked reading it. It was a fun journey to take to whole different world and away from the stresses of every day life. The character of teen Serenity Ashdown was a great one to know. I admired her bravery and determination. Her tale was entertaining with a unique plot. It was refreshing to read something different. I found the author’s talent really shines through. There were a few scenes that were a little over my head but I was quickly able to catch on and keep reading. I liked it. 

I am giving A Measure of Serenity four and a half stars. Fans of the Young Adult, Science Fiction, Fantasy Fiction, and Paranormal Fiction will want to give it a try. I think it is worth a read. I am looking forward to see what other books from Bryan K Prosek to see where else he takes his readers, fans and characters to next in his upcoming releases. 

I received a paperback copy of A Measure of Serenity from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
