Fabulous Freebie: Book Review - What Lies Inside by J.L. Myers

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Amelia always thought she was just a human. She didn’t even know that other species existed. She and her brother were turned when they were very young to save their lives. Now that Amelia is sixteen her hunger for blood cannot be controlled any longer. When she’s out with her best friend she almost kills someone. Amelia is very shaken up about this, because she doesn’t understand what is happening to her. Now that the truth is out Amelia and her family are moving across town, so that she can learn to control her urges and start over. Will she be able to adjust to her new life?

At school Amelia meets Ty. He’s gorgeous, she feels like she already knows him and he smells delicious. Amelia needs all of her strength not to attack him for his blood. When it turns out that Ty is also interested in her and knows what she is, Amelia has a choice to make. Ty is actually her enemy and it’s not common to form a relationship with them. When secrets are inevitably coming out will Amelia and Ty be able to stay in love?

Amelia has a lot of trouble coming to terms with the fact that she’s a vampire. She just wants to be normal. Even though she does like the positive changes, like enhanced hearing, smell and sight, she finds it difficult to control her bloodlust. Her twin brother has significantly less problems with his new life. Amelia is a typical teenager in a lot of ways, but she also shows that she isn't a pushover. She stands up for herself and is a loyal daughter and sister. Because of the vivid descriptions of Amelia's emotions I could easily imagine how it must feel to suddenly be forced to deal with a new world, one that is so completely different from the world of a normal teenager. Fortunately Amelia isn't alone and I liked it a lot to read about her family and the bond they share. They help each other in every possible way and that’s what a family should be like.

What Lies Inside is a story filled with action and suspense. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, because I wanted to find out what would happen next. J.L. Myers kept surprising me with many unexpected twists and turns. I love reading stories about vampires, which is why I couldn’t resist to read What Lies Inside. The main characters are well developed and this made it very easy to connect with them. J.L. Myers has written an amazing story, which kept me on the edge of my seat all the way through to the unpredictable end.


What Lies Inside is a gripping story about learning to cope with a new life and forbidden love. If you’re a fan of Twilight and The Vampire Diaries I would definitely pick up What Lies Inside.
