Senayda Pierre

Unintentional Sacrifices, #1

Published April 30th 2015
A centuries-old legend foretells of twins who will one day save the earth. Lysandra and Leondra have been raised by their parents with the notion that they could possibly be those destined twins.

A once kaleidoscope-colored land is now brown. Water sources have become nonexistent leaving behind only lethal bodies of water. Animals and people disappear beneath the tempting waters never to resurface.

As the world falls apart the twins become separated. Alone and injured, Lysandra ventures forward trying to locate and reunite with her family. Instead she slips beneath the river’s surface discovering a new world where no human has ever survived before.

A prophecy. A dying world. Twins, Leondra and Lysandra are compelled to make the ultimate sacrifice for an entirely new world.

Book One of the Unintentional Sacrifices Series.

Containes mature content.

I want to start out by saying this is not my normal read. With that, I was pleasantly surprised with the uniqueness that is Willfully Compelled.

Hands down the world building is what made this book for me. Ms. Pierre has richly created this post apocalyptic type world. With a great eye for detail, she leads the reader into crumbling dismay and desolation.  And at the same time enticing the reader to continue on the journey to the stories end.
Mixing a prophecy with some sci-fi and some steamy romance makes for very interesting read. I have to say that this book is nothing like I have read this year. The uniqueness of the storyline and the world building keep me turning the pages.
