Professional Reviews

Amazing!
This was an amazing read. The characters, the storyline, the plot - everything just blew me away. It was so interesting and still filled with just the right amount of action. Being in my twenties myself I could really relate to the characters and their problems. I fell completely in love with Aiyana and her family. Plus Christian is so hot! I don't want to spoil it for others so I will not go into details but only say: Pick this one up! You are in for a ride. I could not put it down. By Booklover


LOVE this book. Very different than most book. Great story!
I have this review and more at my blog for a book tour, go see all the extras, first chapter too. See my profile for the link.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author as part of a book tour in exchange for my honest review.

Wow, this book was amazing. Let me say now, this really is not a YA book, just want you to know, due to the adult relations in it. But mature teens may enjoy this too.

This book has a good over all lesson to learn, and I really liked that about this book. It is also told in a different way than most books I have read. Its really told from an older Christian, telling his tale from his early 20's and on. Like a flashback, but found this to be a nice way to read about it too.

I have never read a whole book from just the male's perspective. I thought it was pretty cool, and it wasn't like the few I had read, its totally male, very nice.

This book does start off a bit slow, and its about half-way into it, before anything supernatural happens, and I will not spoil that for you, lets just say, its quite interesting.

I really liked when Aiyana came into the story, and her family, and loved all their unique names and the meanings of them.
This book will really tug at your heartstrings. I do not want to tell too much about it, except that it really, really is worth reading. Its an amazing story overall, and it had me thinking about it when I was not reading, and dreaming about it too. It just really stuck with me in a way no book has for a long time.

You need to give it a try, I promise you will not be disappointed.
5 out of 5 stars for me!

WOW! By the way did I say WOW!
This is not really a YA book due to the adult relations. I just wanted to say that right away.

As many books that are the first of a series the author needs to set the situation and tone with the first few chapter. We need to meet and get to know the characters, so yes it is a bit slow in the beginning but since it is the first of a series that is expected. So, don't be surprised and stay with it learning about the characters and their situations and BAM! The story gets REALLY GOOD.

One of the unique aspects of this book is an older version of Christian the main character is narrating his story. At times it really stood out that he was reminiscing but most of the time I was so engrossed in the story I forgot he was telling his life story and I was just in the moment.

I really got sucked into the story once Aiyana and her wonderful family join the story. I so want them as next door neighbors! I can't say too much about Christian and Aiyana without busting out the story.

I loved all the supernatural things about Aiyana and her family and their names were sooooo cool. I was going a bit nuts wanting the shifter aspect to kick in and thankfully it finally did or I may be in a straight jacket right now.

This quote really rang true for me and has stuck with me:

"This is your soul we are talking about. Your soul wants this; it craves to become an artist. You can't demy your soul for very long, my friend. That will only lead to misery and bitterness. Look at the world outside these windows. It is filled with people who never followed their dreams. People who gave up. Mediocre people living small mediocre lives filled with bitterness and resentment because their heart wanted to do something completely different. You, my friend, you could be something truly great. You have an amazing gift. You need to listen to what is inside of you. What is your heart telling you? Only the heart knows your real purpose in this life."

I have been thinking back on this book al day and it has been a long time since a book has stuck with me in such a way. Thank you so much Willow for writing this book! 5 HUGE stars!
