I was lucky to read an early draft of this novel. I couldn’t put it down! The premise is so original and really makes you think. I loved the supernatural elements combined with the cross-cultural themes. I am excited to read the published book.

This is the type of story that sticks with you even after you’ve finished reading. The voice of Siwar is distinct and compelling; her observations sharp; you can’t help but be captivated as you follow her through a journey that transcends all borders. I especially enjoyed the shift to Wyatt’s POV in the second half of the book. This transition felt seamless since the single thread that ties it all together is the one question that consistently remains on our minds: Who killed Siwar? And more importantly, why? Remarkably imaginative and original, I was engrossed in this story from beginning to end.

I was fortunate to be able to read this advanced copy of They Called Me Wyatt by Natasha Tynes. This was such an original and compelling read that I give this a full 5 stars as I managed to neglect my household duties and children while trying to finish this one. I just had to know what happened and why. This story is about a woman named Siwar who was murdered on her birthday unexpectedly and is woken up in the mind of a 3 yr old boy who is trying to remember what happened and who killed her. It takes place between the US and Jordan. I also loved the voice of Siwar and Wyatt and getting to know them and the other characters. Everything about this one was so intriguing.
Huge round of applause to the author for writing such a great book.
This book is a little bit of thriller, supernatural and mystery. I definitely recommend adding this to your tbr for summer 2019.

I received a complimentary ARC copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

They Called Me Wyatt by Natasha Tynes captivated me from the first page. The plot and the premise are extremely intriguing. A murdered woman’s thoughts/soul survives in the body of a child.

The scenes flowed well from chapter and chapter, and so I was easily able to keep turning the pages. I really wanted to figure out who killed Siwar. I highly recommended this book, and I can’t wait to read more from the author.

I received a complimentary ARC copy of this story, and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.
