Review of The Vanishing Girl by Laura Thalassa

The Vanishing Girl (The Vanishing Girl, #1)

Author: Laura Thalassa

***New Adult Science Fiction/Fantasy***


Every night after Ember Pierce falls asleep, she disappears. She can teleport anywhere in the world—London, Paris, her crush’s bedroom—wherever her dreams lead her. Ten minutes is all she gets, and once time’s up, she returns to her bed. It’s a secret she’s successfully kept for the last five years. But now someone knows.

A week after her eighteenth birthday, when frustratingly handsome Caden Hawthorne captures her, delivers her to the government, and then disappears before her eyes, Ember realizes two things: One, she is not alone. And two, people like her—teleporters—are being used as weapons.

Dragged off to a remote facility where others like her live, Ember’s forced to pair up with her former captor, Caden, to learn how to survive inside until she can escape. Only Caden’s making escape seem less and less appealing.

But even as Ember falls for the boy who got her into this mess, she knows that she is running out of time. Because the government has plans for those like her, and those plans might just cost Ember her life.


5 Alien star Review:

The Vanishing Girl is a mix between dystopian’s ruthless The Hunger Games and the amazing alien world from The Lux Series. I seriously fell in love with Laura Thalassa’s Unearthly series and after reading The Vanishing Girl, she has now been selected as one of my must-buy-regardless-of-genre authors. *yikes, that’s a mouthful*

Let’s get on with the story. So, we have Ember, a young 18yr. old who, at the start of puberty, flashes to different places the second she falls to sleep. These flashes last approx.10min, but long enough to cause potential problems. Ember never knew why she had this crazy ability, until the government knocks on her door.

Let’s skip to the hot guy, and when I say hot, I mean like holy shit, he is lick worthy hot! So, Ember is taken away by government officials to be trained and partnered up with her pair, Caden.


See, hotness!


Caden is a smart-mouthed, egotistical…sweetheart, who could totally kill you in a heartbeat. Caden attempts to explain why Ember is being held in a government institution and why they were made for the other, but she doesn’t buy it.

Ember is thrown into one training session after another, all the while government officials are keeping dangerous tabs on her progress. Once Ember has reached a specific level of readiness, she and Caden are given their first lethal assignment.

Ember wants out. She wants her friends, family, and life back. Escape is the only solution. Problem is, she never expected to fall for Caden. Now, Ember has to decide if freedom is more important than the sole person designed to be her other half?

OMG! I hate writing reviews for one reason, I always say too much and leave little to potential readers imagination. Basically, I suck ass at keeping secrets. O_O The Vanishing Girl is awesome, but is left in one hell of a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to read what happens next in this series! Eeeeep!
