    2. Friends or family Desire or responsibility This is one of those books you re so happy reading, you don t notice you ve reached the end until you turned the last page, and you suddenly start freaking out because there s NO way it s going to wrap up and answer all your questions Annexed certainly whet my appetite for the Refuge trilogy For me, one of the most attention grabbing aspects of this book was the inner struggle outlined by the two lines I quoted at the first of this review I believe thes [...]

    3. i % hate cliffhangers i finished this in a nearly silent study hall and when i found out that that was it, i think i actually screamed but i got the second one right away, so its all good i m still kind of freakin out about it though

    4. This book had a very interesting premise to it Narissa is a teenage girl, uprooted from her troubled home life and annexed into another realm called The Refuge Here, a small plot of Utopia is runned by The Council and life is much simpler While trying to find a way back home to her younger sister, Narissa emerses herself into The Refuge, becoming a type of foster child to a loving family and undertaking certain responsibilities in the town Unbeknownst to her, Narissa begins falling in love with [...]

    5. This is a 3 1 2 star book in my opinion I liked it and will probably read the rest of the trilogy, but hope the next two books are better than this one The concept is what is carrying me along as well as the cliffhanger in the final chapter.The downside Neither the characters nor the plot showed much depth in this opening book of the trilogy Everything seems to float upon the surface.I have vague general ideas of what the characters look like but don t remember having a true description of anyon [...]

    6. My review of Annexed can also be found here Review of Annexed by Rebecca McKinnonI really enjoyed this book It was nothing like I thought it would be, it was better So lets start off with The Refuge The Refuge is like I don t know how to describe it, like an alternate dimension They have their own place, and when they need space they Annex it, but only things with a certain venom in their DNA are annexed with the land Which made it really odd that Narissa somehow ended up being annexed Anyways, [...]

    7. This book was so imaginative with this level of realism that I was not expecting McKinnon creates this well thought out world that is just different enough to give that level of mystery but also doesn t through out main character Narissa off balance.This book throws you into the action, which is great because it grabs your attention, but for the first two or so chapters had me trying to catch up The rest of the book isn t quite as fast paced but still held my attention because of the choices tha [...]

    8. At first this story confused me, because the author takes very little time to jump into the main story, and I felt like I was running behind trying to catch up Once I did though, it was a really interesting take on science fiction, alternate reality, and society I didn t feel that the undertones pertaining to society were politically or religiously motivated which allowed me to draw my own feelings about the authors words, and I appreciated that immensely Narissa is a great character that deals [...]

    9. This is an interesting book For some reason, I thought or maybe just hoped it would be a bit heavier on its science fiction aspects than its chick lit aspects The author develops an alternative culture to ours, but set in our space time, with a mysterious sort of wall that keeps outsiders out and insiders in Somehow the main character an outsider gets inside, and the story takes off from there One aspect that detracted a bit, in my opinion, was the description of a moneyless, barterless economic [...]

    10. This was a great book, Narissa finds herself in The Refuge, at first she is confused and wanting to go home She finds that won t happen for a while She tries to make the best of it, she makes friends with Mac who she ends up living with his parents She also meets Daman who forms an unlikely friendship She also wrongs Crissy, who is out to get Narissa into all sorts of trouble.Narissa also has to be careful not to corrupt the locals with what she knows and as she learns their history she learns t [...]

    11. This is one of the better edited self published novels I ve ever read McKinnon s style of writing is light and refreshing When I finished reading the 1st chapter of Annexed, I was bouncing up and down in my seat, excited to see what would happen.So why only 3 stars I should mention up front that I only made it to page 50 before I stopped reading Half was the believability or the lack thereof The protagonist was WAY too accepting of HUGE change in lifestyle Actually, accepting probably isn t the [...]

    12. This book got me hooked almost from the beginning It is about a 17 year old girl, Narissa, and the alternate reality that she confusingly finds herself trapped in Narissa is a well fleshed out character who really makes you care about her and her journey The book starts out where she suddenly finds herself out in the woods, injured, and sure that she is being followed She learns rather quickly that she isn t in Kansas any She is now in a place called The Refuge and she doesn t know if she will e [...]

    13. I thought this was a very interesting read McKinnon has created an alternate world of sorts in which a group of people physically removed themselves from the world in order to start over It s a really cool concept, and the explanations McKinnon gives are imaginative and very well thought out The Refuge, as it is called, resides way out in the mountains and is protected by a dense wall of fog, keeping unwanted visitors out, that is, except Narissa, who somehow ends up inside the Refuge, discombob [...]

    14. I didn t get interested in the story until maybe the second chapter At first, I was confused and thought this is just a new author who was struggling with developing the plot but when Narissa meets Daman, things changed Daman was enigmatic and it showed Even without a blatant description of his appearance, the reader can easily imagine him as someone who has dark wavy hair and brooding eyes the kind that ladies fawn over The fact that he was a bit of a loner made him all the appealing I liked h [...]

    15. I had planned to read this book little by little but I got so involved in the story and so attached to the characters that I stayed up almost all night to finish it and then started over again The characters have fun personalities and are full of life The culture found within the Refuge is creative as it supports and defines the characters The story is engaging and kept me eagerly involved to the end The struggle Narissa faces when choosing between helping her sister or living the life she so de [...]

    16. I m totally biased because the author of this book is a very special friend of mine But I usually rate books on how much I cared about the characters, how hard it was to put down, and how much I wanted to keep on reading when it was overd her book did all of those things It was a fun adventure with a little mystery and romance my favorite formula for fun reads and I could seriously read it in one sitting if only my children would let me I can t wait to have book 2 and book 3 on my shelf too

    17. I am not sure how to review this book It was a really good story I think it will get interesting as books come out and my thoughts aren t left hanging I would probably appreciate it better if I didn t have to wait for the next book LOL We all hate a wait, right Overall good writing, good story, strong characters I will be purchasing for our libraries The Author is very kind too

    18. Annexed is a delightful story about a young woman who finds herself in a culture just different enough to keep her off balance She must learn how to stand up to prying busybodies, jealous young men, and politicians used to nearly blind obedience Ultimately her biggest challenge is her own emotions, torn between love and duty, so torn she sometimes can t see what s right in front of her like most of us at her age.J Z Colby, author of the NEBADOR series

    19. 5 Stars This is one of those books that have you hanging on the edge of your seat just waiting to turn another page and find out what happens next It is one of the best books I have ever read and I think the author should be very proud of herself I would read every book this author wrote without hesitation Great Job BRAVO

    20. Yes I m biased I ll admit that right at the start The author is an amazing person that I m also able to call a friend That asideis book is still great I loved it the first time I read it as a rough, rough draft I was walking on the treadmill and reading at the same time Let s just say it was a great workout because I couldn t stop reading I m so excited for books two and three

    21. I started this book this morning and couldn t put it down It was really well written The characters were nicely developed and the plot went smoothly I am really looking forward to the next book to see what happens.

    22. Loved this book I must say it starts out slow and you will be thinking I am up in the night but give it a couple of chapters and you will be in love with this book It has twists and turns and is so fun I am ready for the next one

    23. Hmmm I wanted to rate this a 5, it should be rated a 3, so I gave it a 4 I really liked this story It s unique and creative However, there are loads of holes in the plot, and the character development is pretty weak I m hoping her writing style improves with experience.

    24. I honestly am rating this as if I didn t know the author I can t wait to read the final edit of this and am going to read it and then do a real review, because a lot of things have changed through the drafts can t wait

    25. This was one good book I loved Annexed from start to finish It takes real talent to hold the attention like that The characters, and plot made it so difficult to put down I can t wait for the next book to come out This author has a long, positive career ahead
