The story begins with Dahlia a 17 year old girl who has been fostered into a family after having gone through a few homes. She is a very shy.. and I say that as most of the story she has her head down..yet she also has a very defiant mode to her. Her foster home I'm sure is unaware of her past history and the reason Dahlia is so special. Her foster brother Sam although comes across as a bit brash in the beginning tends to show that he has true concern over her in the rest of the book. Dahlia has dreams many dreams that she cannot understand and has NO idea they are actual past clips of her life. One night she's aware she's not alone and turns to see Mr. Green Eye's.. the one that may have to end everything. He lets her know her past secrets throughout the story. Knowing how important she is he does his best to do the job he is supposed to do but he begins having feelings for her. Sam has done his best in the story to bring Dahlia's shyness out and rid of but putting her out there amongst his friends. During these visits things always happen something or someone is trying to take Dahlia down. Unsure who she should trust she manages to accept her past history and the shocks that come with it. There is a lot of unpredictable events in this book that just takes you off guard. I loved it!!
Let me first start out by saying, I am completely surprised that Dahlia is Christina’s first novel. This book was beyond amazing, and I really hope for more on the forming relationship between Dahlia and Greyson as they make their way to Fallon. Dahlia is a seventeen year old girl who just finds out that she is part lapsus and part lamia, which are terms you are probably unfamiliar with but in all reality you are not. Just read the book, and you’ll figure out exactly what I mean. When she was younger and living in an orphanage, she saved a wolf and this is something that haunts her dreams still and she tries really hard to make herself believe it was just her overactive imagination playing games on her. One night Dahlia meets “Green Eyes,” and from that night forward she starts to learn more and more about her past and who she really is. She will even learn that having a family isn’t necessarily a good thing, and that the people you care about are the only family you need. Dahlia threw some wicked curve balls to me as the reader, because I didn’t expect what happened in the end to ever happen. I was completely shocked by how things planned out and was saddened for Dahlia and all the emotions she would have to deal with. In the end I am glad that Greyson (aka Green Eyes) was there when she had no one left to help her. Had he stuck to the plan, this book would have not been on my top favorite list. While at the end of Dahlia a second novella (Fallen Tears) is introduced featuring Rowan, who is introduced briefly at the end of the book. While I have not read this novella and am not sure that anything else is published for this series, I know that I will defiantly be adding those to my to read list when the publication dates are released. I plan to stick with this to the end! My rating for this book is 5+ stars!!
