A Measure of Serenity had me hook, line and sinker from the very beginning. I could not read it fast enough, but didn’t want it to end!
Disclosure: I received this book to review through iRead Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
A million thoughts, but only one right thing to do.
Eighteen-year-old Serenity Ashdown has a brilliant mind: she counts, calculates, and analyzes everything, all the time. Awkward. When her father suddenly disappears, Serenity follows his trail to a parallel dimension. The feds on the other side claim to want to help her go home, if she helps them reconstruct the right codes for the portal between worlds. But it’s soon clear they want something more: a gateway for invasion, because this version of Earth is dying.
When Serenity learns that her alter-ego was killed in battle, she assumes “the other Serenity’s” identity and uses her unique abilities to lead the resistance in a mortal fight against the tyrannical super-government that is poised to invade her universe. Serenity has no idea how to be someone she’s not, but she has to try—or she may not have a home to return to.

The prologue of A Measure of Serenity had me hooked from the very beginning. And then Serenity herself – she has traits of a savant and as a psychology major; I was done for. I could not and did not want to stop reading, but I didn’t want the story to end either! (Talk about a conundrum!)
Serenity is such a neat individual and I love that the book reads as though she really is the one sharing. The storyline follows her vernacular.
Serenity has been through so much and what she stumbles into… well, that’s what makes the story.
I also want to add, that Isaiah is my favorite character after Serenity. I won’t say why. You have to read the book to find out, but I adore him.
This is the second book I have read by Bryan Prosek – in a row even – and I find that conspiracies tend to be a theme in his writing and I really find that it adds to the mystery surrounding the story.
A Measure of Serenity gave me heartache, romance, mystery, suspense, action, conspiracy… an amazing read that I very much enjoyed!
