I’ve been looking forward to reading Velocity by Gun Brooke since I consumed Yearning, the first book in “The Dennamore Scrolls” series. I fell in love with the characters and the story in the first novel. This second book has only added to my enjoyment of this tale.
This novel is like a combination of some of my favorite reads. All of the major characters and most of the secondary ones have an undeniable yearning to return to the small town of Dennamore at some point in their lives. That was the original mystery they had to solve in the first book. There are also treasures to unearth, puzzles that must be completed, and a truly wild adventure. There are also hints of alien influences. In fact, it’s way more than just hints. The romance between Darian and Samantha in the first novel continues in this new book with the addition of a new romance starting with Holly and Claire in Velocity. The author did a great job with the setting for this unique story. The characters, more numerous with each book are well-developed and easy to remember.
This is truly a well-written spec-fic/sci-fi series with (so far) at least two lovely WLW romances embedded in the story. Yearning definitely caught my attention and drew me into the story. Velocity has totally hooked me, and I will be waiting impatiently for the next book in the series. I recommend that you get both of these novels and read them in order. Then we will all be ready for the third and final book in this series.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
