Blurb from Goodreads: A girl with an unknown destiny.
A boy from a hidden world.
When Celeste starts at a new school in a small, Kansas town, she hears whispering voices, has vivid nightmares, and swarms of blackbirds follow her every move. She is oddly drawn to aloof Rylan, the other new student who has his own secrets.
The exact moment she turns seventeen, she wakes to a bedroom full of strange creatures, purple light emanating from her hands, and Rylan breaking in through her bedroom window.
He knows what she is . . .
Review: This book was so different that I didn't know what to expect. I thought this would be your everage Sidhe book. Well boo-hoo for me because it totally wasn't what I thought it would be. However, it was great.
Celeste was a pretty average heroine but she was easy to relate to. I loved her relationship with her parents. It was really refreshing to see a heroine that has a close relationship with her parents and isn't somehow scarred by terrible parents or a lack of one. I thought she might be weak because she wouldn't really handle things head on at the beginning but I was wrong halfway through the novel she really stepped it up.
Tink... okay so he is not the love interest but he was so amazing that he deserves his own paragraph. He was the perfect friends and well this guy was hilarious. In short Tink is like one of my favorite characters.
Rylan, oh Rylan. I liked you then I hated you( but kind of still wanted you) but then I loved you, so its all okay. He was really sweet towards Celeste and I loved how he wasn't willing to really trust anyone. It was a totally good move on his part since it saved Celeste's life in the long run. I want to know if there is some sort of a deeper explanation for their attraction. It wasn't insta-love or anything but I just have that feeling that there might be something paranormal to their love.
I did not expect what happened in the plot. Actually I guessed totally opposite of what happened. ( That kind of surprised me because usually I'm pretty correct :) so yes the plot is amazing )
I give this book
