Start your review of Escape into the Blue (The Sophia #1)
I'm an ardent fan of suspense and multi-book series. When the debut novel, Escape into the Blue A suspense thriller, from the Sophia series published in 2015 by Bibiana Krall, crossed my desk, I needed to give it a chance. What an intense ride!

The novel is a slow-burner until it's NOT... Sophia is on a plane seemingly only to escape some drama going on in her life. She's been hurt physically somehow, but also emotionally. We don't know why. An escape into the blue sounds amazing, right? Unfortu

Escape into the Blue is a combination of character and prose unlike anything I’ve read before. I’m not sure what genre this one falls in, and I hesitate to call it literary fiction for fear of scaring off those in search of the simpler form. In short, Bibiana Krall’s writing is hypnotic and her characters addictive. I found myself reading passages over and over again from shear amazement and at the same time longing to get back to the story.

Sophia is the kind of protagonist you find yourself ro

Clever, Beautiful, Unique, and Witty. Those are the words I'd use to best describe this book. Escape into the Blue is definitely a story unlike any other I've ever read. The writing is very descriptive and deep. 'Poetic Even'. The storyline was very intriguing and kept me on the edge of my seat. When Sophia, a very beautiful and complex woman, tries to escape her tragic past, she soon finds major trouble in paradise. I will definitely be reading other titles from this author. Simply superb.

As I started Sophia’s Caribbean journey, I felt elated as I thought she was embarking on a tropical island adventure. However, when Sophia steps off the airplane, I realize this isn’t a typical vacation getaway, but her escape from a painful past, an adventure of self-discovery.

"A particular speck on a map became the promised land… Serendipity would be found. Leaving her old life like an unwanted pair of shoes."

Underneath Sophia’s youthful, golden blonde façade, lives a splintered soul seeking a

Interesting. Entertaining. Fast paced. Great, detailed settings that make you almost feel like you're on an island. And hopefully women can learn a lesson or two about life from this story.

Escaping into Bibiana Krall's "Escape into the Blue", is as close to a Caribbean adventure as it gets. I was reeled into the story from the very first page until the last, where I could feel the warm island breeze on my face, taste the strong Caribbean rum, and smell the salt of the sea. I was there!

The more I read, the clearer it became that the author has a deep knowledge and connection to this region. This felt more like someone who was living the story, not just telling it. From the moment t

Escape in to the Blue with its 21 Chapters captures the reader’s attention from the first page on. I must say the way Bibiana writes and uses the English language is in my eyes exceptional. The story itself is interesting from minute one and I felt like I was watching a movie. That’s how good Bibiana describes every single “scene”, the characters and the story.

Taking a flight to a new place and starting a completely new life from zero somewhere new like the Caribbean sounds really tempting. Lea

The mastery in writing the author achieved is impressive. I really liked the poetic, descriptive flow of “Escape into the Blue”, playing with the reader's imagination … It definitely played with mine, especially that amazing nature you can connect with just by reading.

You would think it will be a great vacation time for Sophia. This journey is far from that. It feels more like a consciously taking up initiation of a young woman who is determined to deal with every challenge the beautiful Caribb

This isn't your bog standard book...if that's what you're looking for this book isn't for you. The author's style of writing is different from anything I have come across before, it felt as though I were peeling back layers of an onion (I don't mean it made me cry!). I never knew where the book was going which wasn't a bad thing at all. The beginning was beautifully descriptive but to the point if it had carried on it may have been too much, but it changed and kept changing. Hence the onion, lay ...more

A sexy, heady, intoxicating journey into the Caribbean following the adventures of the young and beautiful Sophia. Sophia, the main character, is a mystery herself; a girl who's trying to escape from her past only to head onto a dangerous path, full of shady men with their own agendas. There was definitely that element of suspense every time she got herself into another sticky situation. You couldn't help but look out for her as a reader hoping she'd be alright. The descriptions in the book of t ...more

Leaving her past behind her, Sophia finds herself in a tropical paradise where she prepares to make a fresh start.

The author’s writing was so beautifully descriptive that as I was reading I felt like I was basking under that Caribbean sky myself!

Young and beautiful, Sophia soon becomes a magnet to the wrong kind of attention from the wrong kind of men and finds herself embroiled in the criminal underworld.

This story flowed nicely, keeping me on the edge of my seat. There were so many twists and
