Strange Luck


Strange Luck by Amie Irene Winters

(Excerpt from Goodreads) A mysterious letter. An idyllic world. And a peculiar collection of antiques. It all waits to be discovered in Strange Luck, an imaginative novel that mixes fantasy and mystery for a thrilling reading experience. Hopeful that her father can be saved from a chronic condition, seventeen-year-old Daisy sets out to find a cure, but accidentally lands in a wicked world called The Nameless. As Daisy explores the moaning caverns and encounters people who refuse to go above ground, it becomes clear that the world’s inhabitants are more than just strange. They may be keeping a dark secret. They may have been lured and trapped here for a reason. And somehow—impossible as it may seem—they may still have a chance to regain what has been taken from them.

A daring adventure complimented with vivid imagery, Strange Luck will delight adults, teens, and anyone who can’t resist an imaginative escapade.


My Review

4 Stars

Daisy works at her families store Strange Luck, where they purchase oddities with great stories. But she doesn’t believe in any of it and doesn’t want to be stuck there. But one of the items will have Daisy going on a quest to help her sick father. Her best friend Roger goes along to help and protect her. They find themselves in a land ruled by a wizard that is stealing people’s memories. Without any way out it looks like Daisy ad Roger are going to be the next victims of the wizard as they both start to lose memories.

Daisy doesn’t believe in magic, all she wants to do is travel and write books but she is stuck at Strange Luck. But once she learns the truth, her whole world opens up for her. I loved Roger; he loves Daisy so much that even though she is so oblivious to things he still keeps trying. There are so many great characters both meet along on their adventure. You can’t help but feel bad for them, your memories really do make you and without them you are nothing more than a shell.

Although I was not a fan of the ending but it does work for this book. Everything does work out well. Those that like young adult stories will really like this one. Make sure to get a copy, you won’t be disappointed.

To purchase Strange Luck make sure to check out Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Amie Irene Winters’ website.

I received Strange Luck for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
