Love a good mystery novel and Surgebound did not disappoint. I was captured from the start by our very likable teen storyteller Noa and the author's ability to feed me just enough information (and vocabulary) to keep my brain spinning. Hmmm, is this a clue? Is that encounter one that I need to remember? These characters seem so real until....
I won't spoil any of this story for you but I can tell you I totally enjoyed the build up to - and the excitement of - that first kiss. More please.

I had the immense pleasure of voluntarily reading an ARC of Surgebound. I am in shock, I need more! For the debut novel of a new author this work was amazing. The rollercoaster of emotions between the characters and the notes of romance through tumultuous incidents make a beautiful story that played like a movie in my head. I only wish I had more to read! Really hoping the next installment is on the horizon, not sure how long I'll be able to wait to find out what happens with Noa's story, like, ...more

On the whole, I enjoyed reading this debut novel that left me waiting impatiently for the next book in this series. It took me some time to get into it, though once I was hooked, I didn't put the book down till the end.

I liked the hero and the heroine but for a long time, I wasn't completely sure who the male main character was. Alright, it was rather obvious on the one hand but on the other hand, it didn't really fit. I would have loved some more chemistry and, all circumstances considered, I

I was a little conflicted when reading this book because Noa reminds me a lot like Sara Gray from the relentless series. Her powers and all. The story is very interesting yet also confusing at times. I wanted to get to know the characters more and Also I don’t really feel the chemistry between the two main characters. I feel like the story was also being rush on important parts. I don’t want to say much because of spoil alerts but all in all it’s a great read and I can’t wait to read more. I’ve ...more

This story is about a young girl whose mother and sister went missing when she was 12. 6 years later. She still doesn't know where they are. On the 6th anniversary of their disappearance. Her friends take her on an outing to help keep her mind off of it. When one of them gets hurt. Noa heals them. She has no clue to what had happened. From there, her life changes in ways she never sees coming.

I really enjoyed this story. It's fast paced, and full of mystery. I can't wait for the next book! Would

What a great start! This is Ms. Griffith’s debut novel and it blew me out of the water! Such great world building, tons of mystery and even some paranormal aspects tossed in. It is the first on a series so some slight cliffhangers at the end. But I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Noa and can’t wait to see how her story continues!

I really enjoyed this book! It’s definitely erudite and I loved the writing. Definitely well written and not for the lowest common denominator, so thank you for that! It’s very different from a lot of other books I’ve read recently, and it took a while to understand what was happening. I felt like the Noa must have felt. WTF is going on?? This is unusual but totally awesome!

“Surgebound” is a great start for a debut book for authors Celeste Griffith and Ramona Carter. From the first page it was quite intriguing. Full of mystery, the story line kept me intrigued. These authors have done an excellent job with the writing style and captivating the reader with this book. I was fascinated by the story of Noa as she navigates her summer, just before college, with many strange occurrences and obstacles. I’m very much looking forward to the next book in this series. I’m int ...more

Surgebound is the first book in a new series by new authors Celeste and Ramona.

We meet Noa on the 6th anniversary of her mother and sister’s disappearance. Her best friends Nadia and Jack want to distract her, everything changes for her that night.

I enjoyed the story, a lot of mystery surrounding Noa and her family that leaves you wanting to know more. I’m interested to see where the next book leads. The book is fast paced which I liked, but feel that it did leave somethings out. Nadia left

I need more. This book had me intrigued from the start. So heavily shrouded in mystery it leaves you grasping for more. At times I did feel like the story was rushed in a couple places and could have used more detail to build more depth especially when it comes to the characters and their bond/relationships but other than that I thought this was a great read. I’m not sure I can wait until the next book to know more, I need answers now! The supernatural aspect was so subtle you don’t even realise ...more
