Romantic, beautiful, touching, and suspenseful. I love it. While the plot and twists were incredible, I really fell in love with the relationships in this book. When it comes to relationships, there is just this great variety. You get to see relationships that are built on nothing but lies, you get to see relationships with this deep, consuming love, you get to see the Romeo and Juliet type love story, you get to see the childhood best friends love story. I love how every relationship depicts love so honestly.

This book is a breath of fresh air. It doesn't have the same tired, overused plot that so many other books have. It's insanely suspenseful, and I can now say that I have an emotional attachment to every, single character. One of my favorite things about this book is that at the very beginning, I didn't like all of the characters. In fact, I almost hated the main character, Lily, because I just couldn't understand her. Then, as the book went on, I just fell more and more in love with Lily. She was flawed, but she was so realistic, that I could identify with her. I came to love the fact that she wasn't one of the perfect main characters that are in so many other books. She makes countless mistakes, she's hard to love, but she's so herself, that you have to at least admire and appreciate her, for who she is.

I have been completely in love with this book from page one. I got hooked into this dark, suspenseful, stunning story. Every time that I thought I knew where this was going, I was surprised by something crazy and different happening. Honestly, this book has everything, a book really needs. It has characters that you relate and love, it has relationships that you fall completely in love with, and it has all of these crazy twists and turns. In short, i would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. A book as good as this deserves to be read

I love how when you buy this book, you don't just get one story. You get three stories. This book is focused on the youngest generation in this large family. This latest generation is made up of Lily, Michael, James, Sapphire, etc. While you're reading their story, you get flashbacks to the stories of the two generations before them. The result of all of this is this beautiful story that started centuries ago, but continues to twist and transform into modern days. This is a story that utilizes flashbacks beautifully, when they have some effect on what's happening currently in the story.

From page one, I was hooked on the story. Unlike some other books, I was able to completely relate to every character. At times, I felt like I was even part of the story. The plot and the characters and the relationships just sweep you into this crazy, new bubble. There were so many twists and turns that I could never see coming. I also loved that this story had so many different elements. It was a mystery, an adventure, a romantic, suspenseful tale. I also loved how I could feel the genuine emotion behind this story, and I loved how even when the story got really dark, there were still elements of hope and there was always this sarcastic humor. In short, I would recommend this book to everyone out there.
