Outsider is now live on Amazon!

Okay, as you can probably tell by that statement I’m feeling extra giddy. ūüôā

It’s the third book in the Outsider Chronicles a YA dystopia that as a friend says, features a badass girl with a baseball cap.

It already has one reviewer saying, ‚ÄúThe third installment in The Outsider Chronicles is probably the best yet.‚ÄĚ

Not to mention the fact that it’s part of a giveaway that ends at midnight.

So go on, hurry, you never know, soon you could be saying two glorious words…

The Plot

In The Six Train to Wisconsin by Kourtney Heintz, Oliver and Kai seem like your average couple living in New York City, he is a financial adviser and she helps at risk children. But there’s more to the two of them than what first meets the eye.

Kai is a telepathic and the pressures of blocking out eight million voices is beginning to get to her. After a particularly bad night Oliver takes her away from the city and to his childhood home in Butternut, Wisconsin, but there is more to that small town than what meets the eye.

The Faves

The Six Train to Wisconsin is one of those novels that has blurbs all over the back saying things like ‘evocative’, and ‘brilliant’, and ‘I couldn’t put it down’, praise that is well deserved. A richly layered novel The Six Train to Wisconsin by Kourtney Heintz gently pushes at the reader’s expectations then exceeds them turning what could almost become kitschy in other more inexperienced hands to something with an almost literary bent (if the literary genre ever decided to dabble in the paranormal).

It was an enjoyable read, and I can see why The Six Train to Wisconsin was the 2012 semifinalist for Amazon Break through Novel Award. My only complaint is that I wish the ending had stretched on a little longer. I was dying to know how everything was resolved with the characters but who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky and Ms. Heintz will pen a sequel (both fingers crossed).
