Wow! Casi McLean has wowed me with her amazing writing again!
I seriously can’t begin to say how much I love Beneath The Lake. I used to live in Georgia until last year and now I want to go check out that lake. If I wasn’t married, I would probably be wishing for that portal to open. Don’t let my husband know I said that! This story completely swept me away and stole my heart.
I have no idea how Casi wrote such an amazing story like Bobby and Maddy’s. I absolutely adored every last part of this book. Just so everyone knows, I normally don’t care for time travel-based books, but this book has officially given me a new perspective. I also didn’t have any problems keeping up with the clearly defined time jumps. Normally I would be lost. Casi did an amazing job creating such an enthralling tale with so much definition throughout.
Aundrea Mitchell was an amazing choice for the narrator. I feel that each emotion was reflected perfectly through her voice. I felt Maddy’s pain and determination as if it were my own. The overall production of audio was perfect. The whole story flowed so perfectly.
Seriously, if you haven’t bought this book yet, buy it now! I promise you will absolutely love it. This is one story that I cannot imagine I would ever forget. I’m pretty sure I fell in love with Bobby Reynolds. Maddy May have a run for her money with that one. I am super stoked to read the next installment, Beyond the Mist. I’m not sure how Casi can make this series any better at this point, but I cannot wait to see.
