Dissolve by Andrea Heltsley

Book description:
"Everything seemed to be going right for Cora. She had a wonderful fiance, a great best friend and a fulfilling life. One day, a tragic event caused that life to crumble around her. She turned to her best friend in her time of need. They embarked on a search for answers, delving deeper into a web of magic and destruction. The closer they got to the truth, the more questions they had. To Cora, magic was the stuff of fairy tales. Immersed into a very different kind of world, the real storm was just beginning to take hold.
“It felt like I was nowhere yet everywhere all at once. I was invisible and completely panicked. The millions of pieces I had dissolved to drift on the breeze and away from my nightmares. It was kind of like floating weightless in a pool, perfectly relaxing. The warm breeze from the window embraced and soothed me. I let the air current carry me as far as it could through the summer city.”
“Defeated, I closed my eyes and took a few calming breaths trying to relax myself. I pictured the dandelion in the park today and took a deep breath as to blow the fluffy seeds in all directions. I pretended I was light and fluffy and started to feel a tingling in my body. I began to feel as light as the dandelion seeds and soon I felt like mist floating. This time, I tried to keep myself in the room, swirling in a humid block.”

I enjoyed Dissolve, the concept was interesting and unique. The story was well written and most of Dissolve was at good fast pace. The characters were good but I needed just a bit more development, I wanted to learn more about them. There was a great mystery aspect to Dissolve, however the mystery isn't solved, meaning Dissolve ends in a cliff hanger! I'm not a fan of cliff hangers but I enjoyed Dissolve enough to continue reading the next book, Detour, which will be published next year.

4 out of 5 stars
