Review: Mortal Sight (The Colliding Line #1) by Sandra Fernandez Rhoads

About the Book
When Worlds Collide, Shadow Wrestles Light

Seventeen-year-old Cera Marlowe wants a normal life; one where she and her mom can stop skipping town every time a disturbing vision strikes. But when a girl she knows is murdered by a monster she can't explain, Cera's world turns upside down.

Suddenly thrown into an ancient supernatural battle, Cera discovers she's not alone in her gifting and vows to use her visions to save lives. But why does John Milton's poem Paradise Lost keep interrupting her thoughts?

In a race against time and a war against unearthly creatures, will decoding messages embedded in the works of classic literature be enough to stop the bloodshed and protect those she loves?

My thoughts

Mortal Sight was a great YA urban fantasy. I was fully invested from the very beginning. It grabbed me and didn't let go. The fast pace didn't let up but just kept building. The intrigue and mystery surrounding Cera's “visions” were so compelling.

Cera was the kind of character who was easy to root for. She's dealt with a lot in her life, but every time she got knocked down she got right back up again and fought even harder. She's fierce, kind, and giving...most of the time. She's also the typical teenager, too, with an attitude that could sometimes get on my nerves. It was quite the combo, lol. I'd go back and forth between wanting to scream at her in frustration and then wanting to give her a big hug because I was so proud of her.

As soon as I finished this book, I rushed to my computer to preorder the sequel, Realms of Light. I'm very eager to find out what happens next. If you're a fan of YA and/or urban fantasy, I recommend giving this book a try. It was so good.

Four stars


  1. I do want to read this one. Do you know when the sequel comes out?

    1. It actually comes out next week on April 13. I'm excited it's so soon. I'm kinda glad I waited to read this one until closer to the sequel's release date. Hopefully, now, everything will be fresh in my mind. :D
