The Butterfly Code by Sue Wyshynski

The Butterfly Code by Sue Wyshynski. I was so conflicted with this book…

I really hate (too strong?) dislike the cover and had passed over the book on more than one occasion.

Late one night, not wanted to start a highly anticipated book when I had an early morning the next day, I found this title, conveniently at the top of my e-library shelf.

Boy was I in trouble, unable to put it down I read into the early hours and sleepily trying to concentrate the next day I found my thoughts drifting off… Who is the author, why haven’t read any of her books before…

Not my preferred genre, Sci-Fi has on the odd occasions clung to me begging to be read. Like Across the Universe, whose gorgeous cover was what attracted me, I often am so glad I branched out.

Butterfly Code was a book that, despite not really liking the futuristic side of it, was worth reading just for the writing style. Here I am, late at night again, typing this review and wishing… hoping the author decides to write more contemporary YA, because I’m going to want them all!4 Star

Aeris Thorne is expecting a restful vacation in the remote town of Deep Cove. But on a stormy night, she meets the alluring and mysterious Hunter Cayman, and her life takes an exhilarating turn. Aeris is both drawn to him and determined to find out what he’s hiding. But what Aeris doesn’t know is that he’s tormented by a secret: the truth behind his research. As he and Aeris are drawn together, the walls he’s built to protect himself threaten to crumble. At the same time, she uncovers clues to her own tragic past, answers she never thought to find–and a love she can’t resist despite the dark troubles it brings. When Aeris’s life is threatened, Hunter is forced to make an impossible decision about her future—one that could change everything.               — abstract from Goodreads.com

The fact that I received a free advanced copy of this book does not influence my policy to write an honest review.


  1. What an interesting cover… I’m not sure I’m gonna read it though.
