Overall this was a good story. The writing & dialog is a bit formal for teenagers, & the romance gooey, but otherwise I enjoyed it. In the fantasy department I tend to read more books about werewolves & shifters so the Huldra concept was refreshing. This wasn't an "I couldn't put it down." read, but it still delivered. Not bad :)!

[SPOILER ALERTS] I found this to be a highly intriguing and very captivating book. The author managed to snag my attention from the very beginning by throwing me as the reader straight into the story. Soon I start learning more about the deep dark truth of who and what Sonia is as she learns who and what she is as well. She always knew that she was special, but as she got older and closer to her 18th birthday, she started to understand a lot more about what made her so special. Immediately when Anthony entered the picture I was alarmed and skeptical of his intentions. As the story went on and Sonia and Anthony grew physically closer I started to truly believe he had ulterior motives – especially with the recent killings of young huldras. As I learn later on that I wasn’t wrong to assume that he had ulterior motives but as the story progressives things take an interesting turn. We learn the true nature of Anthony and more about his family as well as Sonia’s family. Anthony and Sonia must work together to fight the Almighty huldra and Olaf in order to save huldras and huldas. There’s romance, secrecy, mythology, and danger all wrapped up into one story. The story doesn’t end with that though, there’s so much more mystery, corruption, digging for information, and … tragedy in this story. Your heart will break in the end.  With Sonia’s flair she is able to control them for the rest of their lives which puts her young self in a very confusing position, especially as she nears closer to her 18th birthday where her powers will encompass her entire being and will then become much too difficult to manage without the proper training that can only be achieved through the Academy on the invisible island. There’s so much more though to her powers then this. With all power comes a sense of responsibility as well as there being those that will take advantage of that power.  One of my favorite quotes from the book is this one: “In life, the test comes first, the lesson later” as said by Sonia’s mother. This quote rains true throughout the entire story but it’s also applicable towards life outside of the novel as well.  One of my favorite things from this story is how huldras and huldas appropriate certain qualities from people with desirable qualities. I loved the scene that the author created when Sonia appropriated self-restraint and faith (not temperance) from the young apprentice priest. The author made it seem so beautiful and as the characters discussed, humbling.  I feel that this book is a great novel for those that love fantasy and romance genres and makes a great read for some mature young adults and adults. It’s a unique book about a young girl coming of age and having the doors of childhood close while the doors of adulthood open fast. It’s a really great book with a lovely plot and amazing writing that truly grabs the reader’s attention and heart. All that’s left to say is that I am really looking forward to reading the sequel!
