Sep 20, 2011 E.M. Ragland rated it it was amazing  ·  (Review from the author)
It is rare when an author manages to take a popular topic and twist it into something new, original, and fresh. E.M. Ragland has accomplished just this in the novel YOKE. This is a tale of many levels. It transcends YA literature. This allegory blends fiction and nonfiction into one, unforgettable story that will make you look at yourself and the world differently. It is beautifully and delicately written. The characters come alive in this novel of substance. I am anxiously looking forward to th ...more

I could not put this book down and when I did I could not wait to get back to it. Finally a story that evokes emotion on many levels. E.M Ragland's choice of words and detailed description made "seeing" the story in my mind's eye so clear that I could envision it on the big screen. I cannot wait for the next book in the sequel.

I got this book in the giveaway and I am so glad that I did! I have always love books about the supernaturals and this book is a terrific read! The protagonist Sophie is a likeable heroine and you can't help but like her. The plot is interesting and stands out among the numerous series about supernaturals. One terrific read and looking foward to more!

watch out sparkly vampires and topless werewolves, there's a new monster in town! really enjoyed this book, from the gutwrenching beginning to the twisting middle and end, though i think it could do to be abit more descriptive, apart from afew butterflies, i didn't get a good sense of the love between the 2 main characters. cannot wait for the next installment in the trilogy!

Okay I loved this book! I read it in two days! (I don't usually have time for that, but for this book I made and exception) I usually don't like main characters who become obsessed with a boy that treats them so badly (at first) and an author who write stories that hinge on being Twilightesk (only similar in the beginning). However, this indie author,(I believe she is self published) Ragland surprised me. I actually enjoyed Sophie through out the whole book with the exception of one part.

E.M. Ragland's debut novel is like a beautiful song you cannot get out of your head. The characters, both human and angelic, are so real their images will imprint your soul and their words will echo over and over in your mind. With one foot firmly planted in each of two totally opposing worlds, Ragland's protagonist, Sophie, struggles to solve the mystery of her life and the meaning of her existence. Ragland's writing is well researched and wonderfully executed. I highly recommend Yoke and anxio ...more
