Review: In The Beginning There Was Us by Ingrid Jonach

Title: In The Beginning There Was Us
Author: Ingrid Jonach
Publication Date: April 28, 2015
What would you do if you were God? If you had the power to not only give life, but take it away in the blink of an eye? These are the questions that haunt fifteen-year-old Abbey Baxter after she resurrects a boy, long lost to the ages. 

The achingly beautiful and eternally melancholy Cole not only serves as a welcome distraction from her long-time crush, Elwin, but also eases the heartache that persists since the sudden passing of her younger brother, Junior, four years earlier.

As the intrigue of her relationship with Cole deepens, so too does the mystery that surrounds a growing phenomenon sweeping through her small West Virginian town, transforming the lives of its residents. Around her, two bedroom cottages are transforming into mansions without explanation and residents are waking up to bank balances that have tripled overnight, all under the watchful gaze of the sinister American Laboratory for Particle Physics, located on the outskirts of town.

As Abbey searches for answers in a bid to solve the mystery in partnership with Elwin, she’s forced into a realization that that some things are better left buried, including her newfound love, Cole.

This cautionary tale of heartache and obsession explores the endless possibilities of the universe and its devastating impact on two young lovers from different worlds.

*I received an epub copy for an honest review

In The Beginning There was Us was an enjoyable read, especially if you like science! Though sometimes I got bored while reading it.

The concept of the story was awesome. The God Particle was one that kept me on reading it. I like Ingrid’s writing style.

The characters didn’t appealed much to me. Sometimes, I don’t understand Abbey. And I knew from the start the Cole will do no good.

The ending was fine. I think I need to read the next book!
