Cait’s Review of “Emerge” by Melissa A. Craven

They claim she is Immortal.

They say he is her equal, the only one who can match her power.

But she’s just a normal girl.

Until she isn’t.

Allie Carmichael is just your typical socially awkward redhead with a smart-mouth that gets her into trouble—which it does the moment she meets Aidan, the boy next door who looks like trouble with a capital T—complete with tattoos and a mysterious secret.

That secret involves Allie in ways she could never imagine.

As a latent Immortal power awakens deep inside her, Allie must learn to navigate a dangerous world of secrets and deceptions, but with Aidan as her equal, she just might make it.

Don’t miss the chance to be swept away by Melissa A. Craven’s highly original, dark and gritty tale of Immortality, prophecy and fated romance, sure to take readers on an epic journey they won’t soon forget.


I don’t even know where to begin. This is one of those books that just consumes you. I finished it at like 3 am and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.

The amount of plotting and world building that went into this first book… it blows my mind. The way Craven interweaved the histories of these characters with our familiar world history was amazing. I don’t want to give too much away, but it was so fun seeing how historical events and figures related to the current storyline.

Characters make or break books for me, and I absolutely loved Allie, Aidan, and all of their friends. There are a lot of people–a LOT–but the more I read, the more I understood everyone’s connections. It was a little mind twisting in parts, but in a good way. I ended up loving a lot of the side characters just as much as the main characters, which I know is important in this series as some of the books and novellas branch off to focus on them.

Overall, the development was fantastic. Both the plot and characters kept me intrigued, making it hard to stop reading. Emerge is the first in the Immortals of Indriell series, and I think it is an incredible set up to a bigger story. I cannot wait to continue!
