My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I really love a good YA Fantasy novel that takes a reader in and makes the magic realistic, but equally takes you on a journey through the emotions of the main characters. Davies doesn't disappoint with the deep emotional insight she provides for the main character, a young teen named Dea facing a difficult time in her life. I loved the friendship that the book starts with between her and her best friend Ana, and the way the story pulls you in makes you feel like you're actually in the room with them sharing their experiences. There are many vampire books out there, but this one has a refreshing angle that I really enjoyed. Davies gives the reader rich details that help in understanding the "whys and "whats" of the dark side of the lore, and that makes it all the more enticing to read. There's a balance between action, suspense, and romance that I found very entertaining. Let me also say that Santi is amazing and the romantic aspect keeps you turning the pages. The ending takes you to the suspenseful edge of the next book and I'm definitely interested in finding out what happens next!
