Piercing the Fold: Book 1

Review 4/5 Stars!!

Jesca Gershon-Sera has an average life on the surface. She is a sophmore in college, has a loving family, and holds a part time job at a local bookstore with her best friend. Her life is pretty normal. Except, under the ...surface she feels like she is losing her mind. Reoccurring nightmares have plagued Jesca for most of her childhood. She thought nothing of them, until they began intensifying and finding their way into her waking hours. Voices, vivid images and supernatural abilities in her nightmares are beginning to seep into her reality.

Ezra Kahn is one of her college professors. Lately, Ezra happens to be everywhere she is; like he is watching her. Along with the slight fear that her professor is stalking her, Jesca fears that she won't be able to handle much more of the insanity that is blurring her reality. On a chance encounter, Jesca confides in Ezra about the crazy happenings. Jesca thought that he would think her to be insane or a freak. But, to Jesca's surprise, Ezra Kahn reveals that she is not a lunatic and that all of the insanity is very real.

Instantly, Jesca's reality is set askew. Ezra reveals that he has been sent to help her. He tells her she is experiencing these events in her life because of her inherited purpose to protect humanity from inconceivable catastrophe.

I started out Piercing the Fold a little slow wondering if I was going to be able to finish it and I am so glad I did.
I loved Jesca, she is wondering if she is seriously losing it with all the nightmares. What she thinks the nightmares are just something she has delt with since childhood is actually who she really is. Once Jesca meets Ezra he helps her figure out she really isn't all that crazy but that her life is about to completely change.
Piercing the Fold has alot of twists and turn and really picks up towards the middle of the book. Venessa writes a great story and will keep you wondering what is going to be revealed next. Piercing the Fold left me wanting more and I can't wait to see what happens in the next book in the series.
