***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW*** I have noticed that this book may be a second addition and there is a copy with a different cover - so I would like to point out that I reviewed the Book with the White Cover with the Face and Owl and it has more pages (206 pages) and is published by Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing and that the other edition that was found was Published October 13th 2012 by Tribute Books (first published August 21st 2012) . This is not unusual for series books and I can say that this edition was well done, edited well and formatting was good I expected this book to be a Paranormal/Shifter plot line to begin with, but Emma Michaels has given a new twist to the idea of a human/animal hybrid which was refreshing, and I look forward to seeing how the series progresses. I really couldn't put this book down and a late night was involved, with an early morning rise to carry on - This is a series and it does leave it on a cliffhanger. So what can I tell you without spoiling the book for you? The Main Female Character is Iris, She has lead a sheltered life, home schooled and an Asthmatic so her health is a major concern for her father and the housekeeper who looks after her. Iris has a confused past, her mother is dead and she doesn't remember much about her, and her father is vague at answering any questions. She is a very deep character who is wanting to spread her wings, the only escape she has are her dreams and these are always the same - she dreams of flying to Never Never land (no not Peter pans island) but this island feels like home to her, she always gets to a certain part but then wakes up. Then one day she gets news that she is to go on a journey to an island... and the mysterious journey begins. There is a romantic interest for Iris in this story, and his name is Falcon, now there are a number of secrets that will be unfolded as the story progresses But Falcon is and always has been in love with Iris - even if she doesn't remember. The author has told this story with little background information in the beginning, so you find out what's happening in real time, at the same time as Iris I loved the mystery and it kept me engaged and excited to find out what would happen next. The world building and character development made it easy to get lost in Never Never land and the suspenseful storyline. This book has an individuality that will engage any reader - young or old, the budding relationship between Iris and Falcon and his unfailing desire to do anything needed to keep her safe touched my romantic soul. There will be some moments in the book that make you grab for the kleenex but on the whole the story is quite optimistic and I look forward to seeing how Iris and her comrades deal with the upcoming events in book 2. Sorry for being so vague - BUT this book is best read blind, as I did. Well worth 5 stars - and I want book 2 ASAP ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.***

This was a beautiful read. The writing is gorgeous right from the beginning. The pace was quick, dynamic, but not confusing as it exposed truths about Iris's past and memories. They were big revelations. Iris though is such a sweet, innocent character. Falcon was awesome (and handsome) too. I really loved his and Iris's attraction to each other. Iris's dream of flying through the landscape and visiting a mysterious snow covered island was mesmerizing, and only got better as the story continued. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a different kind of fantasy story; something that will take you to a great setting with great characters. Loved it!

*I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review* Owlet is definitely a one of a kind book. This unique read was short and enjoyable, and I can't wait for the next installment. But first, it all starts with a girl named Iris. Iris grew up with asthma, confined to her home. Her father loved her dearly, and her helper Diana did as well. Iris always believed her mother had died of childbirth, always blaming herself for her mother's passing. But when her father has Diana take her to an island that she has often dreamed about, secrets start unraveling. The truth is sometimes a harsh thing. A few quick turns and you might not be able to get your bearings. Unless there's someone to guide you. Especially a someone who has loved you for all his life. I enjoyed the story, though sometimes finding it a little confusing or muddled. It is truly like nothing I have ever read before. And the next in the "Society of Feathers" sounds just as intriguing...

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review* ----------------------------------------------------------------- Iris has a secret. She lost her memory eight years ago and never told a living soul. After an asthma attack one night she finds out that her dreams of a strange house on a snowy island may be a memory resurfacing but the more she learns about the past the more she realizes the life she has been living is a lie. -------------------- This story has a unique take on the animal/human pairing - there is no actual shape-shifting involved. As a member of the Stryx, Iris was born with two souls - her human soul and an avian soul. Each type of avian soul has very specific characteristics tied to it such as strength, loyalty, or wisdom. When the two souls work together they can make one very strong and intelligent, but when they are at odds... Raised by her father, Roger, and Diana, a woman she believes to be only her nurse, Iris also has severe asthma and a large portion of missing memories - including the fact that she is Stryx. When her father learns she has been having reoccurring dreams about an island and what looks like snow, but is in fact white feathers, her world as she knows it starts to crumble. Roger sends Diana and Iris to the island, which is actually where Iris lived as a young girl, and she reunites with Falcon who helps her to learn about herself and her people; come to terms with the changes that have occurred; and gain the strength to overcome what lies ahead. -------------------- I enjoyed this book. It is mild enough for young adults, but engaging enough for adults who enjoy paranormal literature. I plan to suggest it to my daughter who loves reading as much as I do, and loves owls even more.
