A mysterious, secluded island with secrets. A brilliant teenage girl whose driving curiosity leads her to probe too deeply. A detached father who goes missing. Stalkers at every turn marked with a disturbing tattoo. An unreachable castle that holds all the answers.
Genny Hazard is on a plane to the Isle of Man, a curious island in the Irish Sea. Little does she know that she is not only going to be the new kid in a strange, foreign world, but her new life on the island is going to force her to rethink her beliefs, confront her past, and face her deepest fears.
A mysterious urban fantasy for young adults and adults alike, Tracy Abrey's debut is a fascinating coming of age tale that explores the importance of family, the influence of our past on our present, and our need above all to find the truth. Incorporating and molding existing Manx folklore to create a new, unique mythology, its layered, intricate use of character and plot gives it the complexity and richness it deserves while never losing its pace or inventiveness. Filled with riveting mystery and almost unbearable suspense, Blue Sun is a first-rate page-turner that will leave you anxiously awaiting the next adventure.

I loved this book from beginning to end. In fact, I can't wait until book two arrives because this one left me on the edge of my seat and wanting to find out what happens next. I bought this book for a 2 day car ride upon recommendation from a friend who had read it and loved it. I had it finished in 2 days and passed it on to my preteen son, who finished it in 3 days. We both like this genre of book. Some of his favorite series are Percy Jackson and Harry Potter and my favorite author is Dean Koontz.. I would liken this book to these authors works. It was an excellent find.
