Blog Tour Review + Giveaway-Glow of the Fireflies by Lindsey Duga

Glow of the Fireflies

Publisher: Entangled: Teen
Release Date: October 1st 2019
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy


Briony never planned to go back to the place she lost everything.

Firefly Valley, nestled deep within the Smoky Mountains, is better kept in her past. After an unexplained fire gave Briony amnesia, her mother disappeared and her dad moved them to Knoxville.

But now her grandmother needs a caretaker and Briony's dad volunteers her to help. The moment she returns, her whole world shifts. She feels a magical connection to this valley, as if it's literally part of her somehow.

And when she meets a hot guy who claims he was her childhood friend but now mysteriously keeps his distance, Briony starts piecing together her missing past...and discovers her mother didn't leave to start a new life somewhere. She's trapped in the hidden world within the valley.

Now, Briony will do whatever it takes to rescue her, even if it means standing up against dangerously powerful nature spirits. Even if it means giving up her first love.

Soooo... This was kind of weird, magical, and whimsical all at the same time. But it was still more weird than anything. It took me awhile to truly get in the book but when I did, I was able to appreciate it as a whole.

Briony has lost ten years of her life after a fire that almost took her and then her mother just up and disappears. Briony’s whole life changes and she can’t even remember how; all the while she and her father move away from her hometown.

When Briony is asked to go and take care of her grandmother, who broke her leg, things start changing again. Only this time, Briony could possibly get the answers she’s desperately wanted.

We are thrown a curveball when we find out that Briony’s mother is somehow alive but in some spirit world that’s neither here nor there—and she needs help escaping.

Briony, along with a super hot dude that was apparently a childhood friend before the whole amnesia thing, go and try to save Briony’s mother. Along the way, readers are taken on a fantastical ride filled with pretty words and a world you can fall away into.

I thought the story was a very interesting concept, the characters were engaging and at times relatable, and overall, I thought it was a fun read.
