I genuinely enjoyed the first book in this series. This one was a definite step up from the first.

What I like? The world Karen Tjebben has created. She has managed to use wonderful descriptions to paint a world in each of her books. She doesn't rely on her readers simply being familiar with the atmosphere already from the first one, she manages to keep the world fresh in our minds. 

What I love? The characters! They are so fun and real. I enjoy reading about them and their growth from book to book. Everything about this series just Gels together so smoothly. 

Something new? I really think that the surprises and actions were stepped up a notch in this installment. It was very exciting to read and try and guess what was coming next. 


Story time always captivated Karen.  As a child, she fell in love with books that transported her to different worlds and introduced her to new creatures. As a teacher, she encouraged her students to explore different times and new worlds through literature.  Now, when Karen isn’t living in reality with her husband and daughters, she can be found creating an alternate reality filled with creatures and worlds that she hopes will delight and raise goose bumps on her readers.

  1. I am so happy that you enjoyed SYMBIOSIS! I had a blast writing it and am excited to share a little more with you. The cover image is loaded with information. The background setting is actually Jordan Lake (a major setting in the book). There are two butterflies on the cover. In the reflection on the water, the butterfly that is the blue butterfly was on SCINTILLATE’s cover. That butterfly represents Kate and her transition. The white/black butterfly appears to be emerging from the blue butterfly. This butterfly represents Sarah. The body of the white/black body has 2 bows with an arrow in the middle. I used bows and an arrow for this butterfly because Sarah is an archer. I am busily working on the final book in the series. Please check out my Pinterest sight for a little insight into SYNCHRONICITY. I have a board with pictures that help inspire me as I write.
