Into the Myth by R.L. Weeks is a fantasy tale for teens or young adults. I loved the story but it seems to go at a very slow pace. The characters were very interesting but lacked the depth she puts in her other stories. I still liked the story, don't get me wrong, just not like her others. ...more

Please don't waste your time on this poorly written, rambling plot, magical girl YA novel. ...more

**review done on ARC copy**

This YA novel is an interesting roller coaster. The main character is a teenage girl names Lily who, in the midst of high school and an absent mother, is forced to deal with death, forgiveness, love, and her own potential. None of which are easy but become harder when thrown into a situation and world you know nothing about. The story starts off great and climbs to a nice crescendo but it doesn't end where it feels like it should. Unfortunately the story goes on throu

This is an interesting paranormal YA novel. The main character Lily is a somewhat typical teenager in the sense that at times I couldn't stand her and at times my heart broke for her. Lily deals with bullying at school, a neglectful alcoholic mother and on top of that she's thrust into a paranormal world that she knows nothing about and goes through gut wrenching sadness and loss. R.L. Weeks definitely did an excellent job when developing this character. The story has interesting twists and turn ...more

**review done on ARC copy**

Lily seems like the average girl until a series of events upsets her life. Mystical forces attempt to win her to their side as she learns more about herself and her destiny. But she soon finds that she has other things in mind then following the path set out for her.
The main thing that I loved about this novel was the plot. It took many an unexpected turn and I just couldn't put it down. I enjoyed the buildup between each climax and the fact that the book actually made

Into the Myth by R.L. Weeks is an Urban Fantasy. It is filled with suspense. The twists and turns in the plot will keep you quickly turning the pages to find out what will happen next.

The main character is Lilly. She cannot wait to finish school and go to college, so she can get away from her mother. She has a few close friends and life is pretty ordinary, until Kyle a new kid at school takes interest in her. Suddenly unexplainable things start to happen in Lilly's life. The worst part is, they

Into the Myth is the story of a teenage girl who discovers her hidden magical abilities and sets forth on a dangerous quest to find out the truth about her father's death. Lily is thrust into a world she hadn't believed existed outside of the books she loved to read.

The storyline might sound similar to a lot of other urban fantasy novels, but it is captivating and unique in its nature. I loved the character development of Lily from the beginning to the end. Lily is a strong and sensible teenager

I was given this book for an honest review.
Brilliant novel from a young author and I look forward to reading the next book in this story. This story was fun to read and will probably appeal more to a younger reader but I was still greatly entertained.
Lily is the main character and falls in and out a love a lot for a teen I got a bit of a head spin.
Lily's life is turned upside when she finds herself thrust into a world that she thought only existed in her books. She discovers she has magical pow

INTO THE MYTH is the story of Lily, a girl who grows up in an abusive home and escapes through her fantasy novels. When strange things start happening around Lily, she learns she’s a sorcerer, something she’s only read about previously. The characters weren’t as well-developed as they could have been and I alternatively liked and disliked Lily. Perhaps some back story, before dropping the readers into Lily’s story, would have been helpful. The magical world the author created was intricate and s ...more

**Received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review..**


Well...at first it was hard to get into..it got started kind of slow. BUT...when I got to 20% (I think) it really started to get interesting. Lily thinks she's an ordinary 16 yr old girl...but when the new popular guy Kyle starts showing interest in her and weird things start happening she doesn't know what to think. Then one day Kyle tells her she's a sorceress. She thinks he's crazy of course. Lily is then thrown into a world were Bers

This is a new author for me, so glad to have found her! She really rocked it with this book!
Lilly is the teenaged main character of this book. She is pretty much a normal high school girl with a few friends including Kyle the hot new transfer student. Her mother sucks, her step father she adores, her biological father she has never met. Unexplainable events occur that make Lilly have to leave it all behind to go live with Kyle and his hot cousin Jay. The story is full of twists and turns with p

This is the story of 16 year old Lily, a girl who grows up in an abusive home and escapes through her fantasy novels. Lilly is thrown into a world she didn't know exists. She is told her life is in danger and she must let go of her present life and reach out to people from her past to get through it. She doesn't know which way to turn or who to trust. The start of a great series, I'm looking forward to the next one. ...more
