Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson
What would you do if you woke up in a psychiatric ward, with no memory of how you got there? That is what happens to Allison at the beginning of Ultraviolet. We meet Allison when she awakes, restrained in a bed in a psych ward. As she remembers more and more about what happened to her, the mystery is revealed as to the strange and unexplainable event that occurred that landed her in that bed.
Allison witnessed her classmate Tori’s death. However, this was a death that was like no other because Tori literally unraveled before Allison’s eyes. Allison does not know if what she saw was real, she thinks it is, but is too scared to tell anyone. Even worse, the police suspect that Allison may be guilty of Tori’s murder since she was the last one to see her alive.
Ultraviolet is an exciting read! It is one part mystery and one part science fiction, and I guarantee you will never guess the truth of what Allison saw. This novel definitely kept me guess up until the end of the book. One cool thing about this novel is that you never really know if Allison can be trusted, but the story is from her point of view so you wonder if you are getting the true story. I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone who likes a good mystery, and also to those who like sci-fi, action and adventure reads. Click here to find Ultraviolet in the Library!
