I made it to page 2 and couldn't stand the constant halting sentences that weren't proper sentences. Please learn comma usage. I'll try to read more, but it's seriously annoying and bad already, and it takes a lot to put me off a book (especially free one).

It was an okay read.

I really loved this story and the characters. The author has created an interesting world where magic is real and can help or hinder even the best intentions. Even the background story/history about the Cinerians is interesting and would make a good series. There are a lot of secrets in Hawaii and most of the time Grasiella and Tatiana really dont know much of what they are looking for but they stay strong and pull together and solve the mystery while learning not only secrets of these ancient beings but also some about their own family history. Its not a hard story to read. Pretty easy really and you do get hooked early. Even with its touch of mythology you dont get lost in what is going on. There are a couple of scenes where the dialogue mainly seems a little awkward. But it doesnt take away from the actual story taking place.

[E]very time a child says, "I don't believe in fairies," there is a fairy somewhere that falls down dead. - James Matthew Barrie, Peter Pan it is the summer of 2045 and sixteen-year-old twins Grasiella and Tatiana are sent to Kauai, Hawaii to visit their grandmother "G". they each know of their special abilities but what they find out and who they meet during their stay on the island will make their holiday something they will never forget. in this fast-paced book, i was treated to some mystery, magical creatures, gods and goddesses, secrets and age old battles. the book's prologue drew me instantly to the story. the last few pages were exciting as well and obviously hint at a sequel. the lines between the world of magic and reality are non-existent. mythical beings have no trouble blending in with the human population who seems to be oblivious to what is going on. only a handful, like the twins, know that there is more out there beyond the surface of things. despite their limited powers, knowledge and their grandmother's disappearances just when they needed her, Grasiella and Tatiana go out of their comfort zones to find answers. it does put them in danger but i like the idea of the teenage twins taking part in something heroic that could bring about the world's salvation from an alien threat. overall, it was a fun read. author M.M. Shelley's writing debut is wholesome and imaginative. although i feel that the book would cater more to a younger audience, adults would also enjoy reading this as i have.
