Although this book is a paranormal romance it was nothing like I expected! I thought it was very refreshing to read something totally different than the other paranormal romances I have read. Sadie is what every young girl should want to be and the relationship she has with her mother is wonderful. Rayne seems like the perfect guy, he is HOT and caring and thoughtful...yet he has a secret or two. One thing I really enjoyed about the book was that it was a clean book. It didn't have teens doing things that they really shouldn't be doing. I loved the mystery and can't wait for book 2!! I highly recommend this easy read.

Anderson offers a creative alternate world that will give a readers a relax from the the typical paranormal story. Admittedly, I found found this book slightly frustrating. While I loved the characters, and could see the potential growing through this book; it was obvious that the climax was not going to be reached in this particular book. Sadie is a very special and down to earth character that readers will enjoy. This mystery of her past will keep readers guessing with this easy paced story. The alternate world that Anderson has previewed throughout the book still remains a mystery holding my attraction to this story. My overall impression of this read is a enjoyable and imaginative read.

    Read better

    I was unable to really feel the connection between the characters. The story felt fragmented and frankly dull.

    more from this reviewer

    Needed less detial and more of the story

    This was a very simple story that will appeal to those 15 years old and under, I found Sadie's repeated introspection about her feelings for or from Rayne annoying. This story is VERY descriptive to the point I felt to losing the reader. I found myself skipping pages and not missing anything but scenery. This book at 800 plus pages could have been wrapped together so much nicer, because beyond all the description there wasn't too much else, the plot was lost among everything else, and at the end you are left going "that's it?" I know it is part of a series, but it is lacking and needed more story and less detail.

    BORING

    2stars and I'm being generous. I had to force myself to read this book but i couldn't i stopped finish it i stopped at 672. Best way to discribe this book is BORING.
    Shakespeare wrote plays shorter than this book. By 672 i had no idea of why Rayne wasprotecting our heroine, no idea as to why Vos as in prison or why he is after our heroine. The book just rambles with no story development.
    This book needs a good editor they would of cut this book down from iits 700+pages toabout 200 pages than have the writer start telling the story who, what, where, why and how, presently thisbook is missing most of this.
    I'm thankful this was free for it will be deleted ASAP
    Do yourself a favor dont read this BORING book

    Confused

    I'm on page 108 n I'm so lost. I don't see the point in the book yet. Normally by 108pages u would have a since at what ur reading. The writer is very detailed in the color of the paint on a wall or the way the sea looks. But isn't detailed on the chars in the book or how the main char she almost dies? I don't even no how old the girl char is. I don't get who she is. Also she is to happy. No normal teenager acts like that..
