Intrinsical is one of the most engaging and fast-paced novels I have read. Every single page made me want to keep reading and I hated when I was too busy to do so! Lani Woodland’s writing is beautiful and fresh. Her descriptions are well-written, never over the top, and create such vivid images. She has given Yara, the main character, a funny, beautiful, and realistic voice that makes the narration all the more enjoyable.
Speaking of Yara, I really liked her. Her reluctance to accept her Waker abilities is believable and understandable. But when she starts to accept them and learns more about her powers, she grows as a person. She doesn’t start off as weak necessarily, but towards the end of the novel, she’s stronger and more assertive.
The romance in the novel is clean and sweet. I liked that Yara and Brent didn’t fall in love the moment they clapped eyes on each other. Their relationship grew naturally and Ms. Woodland illustrated their feelings for one another wonderfully through their actions and words.
Ms. Woodland wastes no time throwing the reader into the story and letting Yara’s story take flight. The events of the story are sometimes confusing and glossed over, but overall, everything fits together to present a fresh and exciting story.
I cannot stress enough how much I enjoyed/loved reading Intrinsical! If you don’t purchase a copy or request one at your library for you to check out, then you’ll be missing out on an incredible debut! For more information about Intrinsical and Lani Woodland, please visit the following sites:
