My copy was supplied to me by the author in exchange for a honest review. Thank you so much Christin! The fact that it was an ARC does not affect my review of it.
This was a pretty good book! Usually, Fantasy is difficult to write, but Christin Lee pulls through. The book was written simply, with no fancy words trying to impress the reader, and that is what makes it so effective. Although the story starts off pretty slow, it's good enough to keep reading. It begins like a YA high school story, and evolves into the fantastical elements. There aren't many cliff hangers or anything, so it was a pretty relaxing read (though I do think it would be better if there were more shocking moments). But when we begin to find out all the secrets... that's when things began to pick up the pace.
For me, the characters seem so normal and average in the beginning, it's difficult to think that there will be anything interesting that will happen in their lives, but I was so wrong! Kate seems like the average girl: smart, has an overprotective family, great friends, and falls in love with the mysterious boy. Seems like any YA novel, right? Wrong. Christin Lee manages to take a cliche plot line and twist it into something very original. Okay, the only really cliche part I didn't very like was the 'love at first sight'. Literally, love at first sight. They even felt sparks. Woah :O
What I was a bit unsure about was Lucas. Sure, he and Kate are a cute couple, but sometimes, his personality rubs me the wrong way. I can't blame him though, since he does have a different upbringing. Lucas is easily angered and
This is a really good debut novel and I recommend it for anyone who wants to read about a different side of Fantasy! Nothing like the faeries, werewolves or angels we see much of these days, but something completely different. I really enjoyed it and I can't wait to see what happens next.
