**This review has been done in conjunction with NerdGirl. For more information - find them on Facebook! ** Outstanding. This read, geared for YA audience, captivated me as an adult and didn’t let go! She has the perfect blend of paranormal and fantasy in this book, and it really kept me reading! I liked that it wasn’t just focused on the romance, and really kept a good solid grounded in its other genres. Well done Wells! Great debut book! The main character, Logan, really interested me. I was glad to see a really strong female without much wishywashyness (is that a word?) to her. She really held everything together, and really reflects well to the reader. Her development throughout the book was well done, and very interesting. I related to it. The character struggles to understand some of the twists and turns thrown at her, but she doesn’t do the typical YA girl move and pout about it. She could, because she’s leaving her sunny home and going somewhere she never planned, but she’s strong and that’s what I loved most about her. She does face major challenges, changes, and some crazy far out stuff, but she takes it in stride and really becomes a beloved character. Luke is also great. He’s a great romantic lead, and the mystery surrounding him was very well done. He’s interesting, and more close to your typical hero in a story, but this story is so much more dynamic with Luke and his brothers and everything that goes on that you don’t even mind his broody moments because you’re just captivated by the story. He’s got an interesting backstory, and I’m looking forward to more of Luke and Logan in the next book. I don’t spoil but there are a few twists and turns I didn’t see coming! You are so drawn in, and you really want the answers to some questions that you get left with. I’m glad there’s no major cliffhanger, but I’m still really excited to see what happens to Logan next. Great read! It exceeds the YA genre to appeal to anyone of any age who enjoys a good paranormal romance that’s completely acceptable to be read by a 13 year old as it is to be read by a 25 year old. It’s a great read that will grab you from the beginning and pull you through until the end! Very excited for the next book! *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I was lucky enough to get a reader's advanced copy of the book through the Facebook page, which everyone needs to "Like"!! I took my time reading this book so I wouldn't miss any details, as when I get excited for a new book to come out that I have been waiting for I tend to rush through it due to the excitement!!! I thought this was an amazing book! When I was reading, the book definitely keeps you wanting more after each time you turn the page! It has moments of suspense throughout the book not knowing what the character was going to do next. I honestly have started to re-read the book over again to make sure I catch every detail in the book. The author is so detailed when describing characters, their reactions, facial gestures, and matching their thoughts with their actions. I cannot wait until the next books in the series and see what is in store for Logan and the other characters! Great book and a great amazing author!!
I usually read horror and action novels but my girlfriend got me interested as she's been reading this the past few days. This was my first YA fiction as I stayed away from the Twilight scandal, although I didn't mind the movies. I was surprised at how much I actually liked this book. I was expecting it to be an easy read and I did finish it in one afternoon, but mostly because I couldn't put it down once I started. I really, really liked the characters and the more I thought about it afterwards, I found myself flipping back to a few pages and rereading some sections. I was warned ahead of time that there were a few unexpected reveals in the book, but I thought it was pretty obvious because I knew there was a supernatural-something going on and I just figured it was about a girl that falls in love with a vampire/werewolf/monster/whatever. Just when I had it figured out, about 20 pages later the story took another unexpected turn. It is a fun read and breathe of fresh air after usually reading heavier novels. I’m glad it was my first young adult novel and I’m going to give the rest of the series a try since I already know I like the author.
