Book Review: Unforeseen Beings *Vol. 1* - Lilith's Garden of Madness (N.L. Johnson)

Unforeseen Beings Vol. One: Lilith's Garden of Madness
by N.L. Johnson
Genres: Fantasy

Hidden away behind the doors of Kelton Mental Institution is a power unlike any the world has ever experienced. It has been locked away for so long that many no longer believe it exist. That was until Hannah finds it down the South Hall of Kelton. But should it have been found or forgotten along with the remainder of the "untreatables". What Kelton kept locked away is only a taste of what is to come as a completely unknown world of angels, demons and the unforeseen beings, opens up or rather wakes up with the release of Room 102.

This book was really good. It pulled me in right from the start. I was intrigued by the big time jump, and I wasn't sure it was going to work...but it did.

   In Lilith's Garden of Madness you get to glimpse behind the doors of the reality of how some psychiatric facilities are. It was intriguing and terrifying at the same time. I know many facilities aren't like that, but there is always one that will be and it's terrifying.

The shortness was appealing. In all honesty, I've grown to tire of these long-winded books. It was nice to take a break and read something a bit thinner. Which is a big deal because I used to only pick up books that were 200 pages or more.

 Although it was short,  it was really amazing and well written. N.L. shoved so much into those sixty pages, and it just worked. You knew everything you needed to know, but you were still questioning everything. You wanted to know MORE, and I think that's a  bigger deal than knowing everything and not really participating in the story.

I like the whole mystery behind it. "Room 102". I assumed she was the little girl from the beginning....but which one? What happened, I thought the people understood? How could someone treat someone like that? All of these questions swirl through your head, but never really get answered. You kind draw conclusions yourself with what you're offered, but you never really have time to focus on your unanswered questions because new ones keep popping up and getting answered and there's all this action.

I haven't been able to start a new book yet because this one is all I can think about. I thought I had it figured out and then *boom* new information that totally turned the world upside down. Despite a baby's handful of grammar mistakes (which we don't review. We review the story), I didn't find a single thing wrong with this book. It just worked and flowed and was a really great read.

Now, for the question we always must answer with series: Will I read the next book? You always say you will but then they're never reviewed.

Well, yes, I would very much like to read the second book. Whether or not it is read always depends on the author and how many reviews are still on our lists (spoiler alert: there are always at least five new a week, so we never catch up). But yes, yes I would love to read Unforeseen Beings Vol. 2. I really want to see where 'Room 102' ends up.

You guys need to read it, honestly. The links will be below, why don't you click them?

What's the longest book you've ever read? What's the shortest book you've ever read? Which did you like more?

Are you a short book person or a long book person? Does size REALLY matter?
