Book cover for Foreign to You

Synopsis: The harmony between humans and fianna, a species of shape-shifting deer, begins to wither as racial tensions and deeply rooted resentment turns violent. Finn, a hunter of the feral (fianna that turn crazy and go mad in half beast/half human form) must work with fianna leader Adelaide to find the God of the Forest.

Genre: Fantasy

Hook: Two enemies must work together to save both their kind.

Fun Fact: Jeremy is also from Pennsylvania, just like me!

Full Disclosure: Jeremy reached out to me and asked to send me his ARC (advanced reader copy) for Foreign to You. I read his manuscript and provided some edits, so I haven’t read the revised and final book yet.

Time of Year to Read: Anytime...although I'm partial to a hot summer day.

Would I Recommend This to Other Busy Parents: Yes, as long as he took my edits to heart. The writing is a bit choppy at times, but gets better towards the middle of the book.

Similar Reads: It's got a little of a Twilight vibe with the shape-shifting, but I don't think I've read anything very similar, which is refreshing!
