Kellie Wallace is a new author for me and When Our Worlds Collide the first book i've read by her. I was more than a little curious to find out what this author had to offer and i don't think i was fully prepared for what she was able to deliver. While it was dramatic, it was also poignant, a science fiction that seemed more than a little realistic at times, but it was also captivating and i couldn't wait to read more and faster just so i could find out

This was a story that was not only gripping but realistic as many dystopian novels can be. The Argos army is occupying Amira's hometown, and no one really understands the point of it. They can't imagine what is so important about their land that it could mean anything to them. Amira is a young woman who spends her days trying to find rations for her family to get by. A chance meeting with Grayson, the leader of the resistance, while supplying the less fortunate with needed supplies changes her e ...more

When our Worlds Collide, by Kellie Wallace is a fabulous dystopian novel. The story revolves around Amira Frost, a young woman forced to adapt along with the rest of her city when it is invaded and occupied by a hostile military force. Being both intelligent and beautiful, Amira is offered a job she cannot turn down. In order to keep her family safe, she is forced to work for the enemy, eventually becoming the trusted assistant to the leader of the occupying force.

Amira’s position also makes her

This book was primarily about war and betrayal. There is plenty of action and manipulation. If you're looking for a love story, it's got a little of that as well, but the main focus of this story is the war for control of the city and how far each side is willing to go to win. The beginning chapters seemed a little slow and I had a difficult time getting into the story from the beginning, but about 1/3 of the way in I finally was able to connect to the story and get interested. Overall, it was a ...more

When I picked up this book, I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting. It definitely wasn’t what I got.

When Our Worlds Collide is a novel loosely based on war occupied France during WWII. Amira is the girl caught between loyalty to her homeland, and the desire to keep her family safe. She is the girl who has to choose between the man who took over her land, and the man trying to free it. And this choice is not as easy as it might seem.


This story begins with Amira walking to the market.

As war ravages a city lines will be drawn, fates will be decided and a city will be divided.

Amira takes a job that she does not want but will do what she needs to do to save her family. As she gets closer to the General she is pulled deeper into the war. She is given a chance to stand by the General or give information to The Raven's, who are the resistance to the military. This sets for a wild ride of betrayal, death, violence, control, and allegiance. All of this while battling feelings betwe

Amira's peaceful city is taken over by a military regime, while it seems that the entire world is fighting in a bigger war. Resources are thin and in a bid to be a help to her family, Amira accepts a position within the regime. Amira finds herself torn between loyalty to her family and to her beliefs.

This story has good bones and the overall theme is good. The love story within it left me a teeny bit sour though. The fellas were not likable by today's standards at all. I'm not sure what the tim

When Our Worlds Collide

This is the first book I've read by this author, and while it's not something I would normally read, I enjoyed it well enough.
Amira and her family are living in a city taken over by another stronghold and just trying to make it day to day. She is offered a job to help her family and in turn is approached by the resistance for help infiltrating. You never know 100% what she will do so that keeps you turning!

This wasn't a book I'd normally read, but I actually really enjoyed it. Amiera is stuck in the middle of a war, where men from both sides are trying to win her over to their side of things. She has some decisions to make and certain things happen to make that decision easier. I voluntarily reviewed a copy via Quirky Blind Date with a Book. ...more

YAYYYYYY! Another editing project is now a published book!
I participated this month in something called Quirky Blind Date with A Book, hosted by The Quirky Bibliophile and helped by one of my buddies from that time we used to go to Wizard Rock stuff, The Unapologetic Book Addict. Jenn was actually the one to introduce me to it and this is my first month participating. The basic premise is you get several sentence long descriptions of books and pick one, and then you get that book for an honest review. It’s a great idea, honestly, and a fun way to be in ...more

This is my first read ever of Kellie Wallace's writing. I have to say the story line of the book seemed familiar to me yet new at times. The overall book reminded me of the movie RED DAWN. I saw the movie prior to 9/11/2001 and vividly remember how uncomfortable it made me feel. When Our Worlds Collide caused me to revisit the uncomfortable feeling of not feeling safe in my own country. WOWC deals with occupation or invasion by a foreign aggressor. I felt at times lost because there were so many ...more

Hearts & Families Collide Too!
This is the first book that I've read by this author and it's a really good book for this genre. I thought there was a few things that I found confusing, but I recommend it to anyone who likes this genre! This book is about a city that has been taken over by General Cassius Knox and his Argos Army. They have destroyed so much, killed so many, and have separated the city into five different sections. Plus they take the teenage boy and young men, and bring them into

When Our Worlds Collide by Kellie Wallace

This story is about a girl trapped in a war and two hot and intense guys.
I love the characters sans Amira. I mean, she was ok, until she slept with both guys. I don’t like most of her reasons, and I was actually rooting for Knox because it was him who I felt her connected with. Gray’s character is also interesting, although he seemed off most part of the story.

The plot was interesting – I actually loved it! Dystopian stories are always mind-boggling, and

This is my first Kellie Wallace story, and I was not disappointed. The story, the characters, and their situation - they just made it difficult to put the book down. The action and the intensity of the story will definitely have you taking sides.

I've been on a dystopian kick and this book certainly filled it. When the evil Argos come to the peaceful town that Amira Frost has always called home, things become chaotic and life becomes nearly unbearable. The world is then divided into various classes and evil seems to overpowering good. Enter the resistance force, The Ravens led by leader, Grayson Roe. He realizes that the way to defeat Argos is to use Amira. When he makes her an offer she knows she can't refuse things become more chaotic. ...more

I liked the style of writing. I did get a little lost at one point in the story but was able to refocus and it all came together nicely in the end. I enjoyed the role of the strong female character. I would recommend this to any lover of dystopian stories.

Although the storyline held great promise I felt the writing went from here to there and back again leaving me very confused at times. Whilst the characters were interesting, to me they lacked the depth that could have made them jump from the page. The story was interesting enough but not one where I couldn't wait to turn the page to see what was going to happen next ...more

This book is absolutely thrilling. A really good start for reading books in the new year. Sometimes there can be too many details in a story or whimpering women, but Amira is definitely not one of those woman. She is a power all her own and I really liked her character. She's in a war all her own, but fighting for what she needs the most. She is caught in the middle of the war, and stuck in her own battle as well, especially when those closest to her are dying. I highly recommend this

First of all, this story sucked me in and I absolutely couldn't put it down for about the first 80% of the book. I literally wanted to do nothing but sort out what direction the story was going in and I desperately wanted to understand the characters. Dystopian fiction is a major favorite of mine, but the key to writing dystopian stories is making the world fictional, but believable. If we can see the potential for a world like this to exist, then the world and the characters become real. They b ...more
