New Release Book Review: Envy by Dylan Allen
“It’s just us ... the sun and her star.”
Dylan Allen has such a way with words that I find myself just getting immersed in the story and in the lives of her characters. Envy is a beautiful story.
We first meet Apollo and Graham during their childhood. Not only did they meet in the most unique way, but we get to see the blossoming of a most beautiful friendship among the desolation of a lonely and harsh life. As the years go by we see Apollo and Graham grow, learn, suffer losses, and have successes. And as strong as their friendship is, forces are in play that create cracks in what was once an unbreakable friendship.
There are so many highs and lows in their lives that my emotions were seesawing along with those of the characters. These characters are authentic. They’re genuine, flawed, serious, fun. I laughed with them. I cried with them. I supported them when they were lost. I cheered for them when they finally found not only friendship but the deepest love with each other.
Dylan Allen is a Texas girl with a serious case of wanderlust.
A self-proclaimed happily ever junkie, she loves creating stories where her characters chase their own happy endings.
When she isn’t writing or reading, eating or cooking, she and her family are planning their next adventure.
