About the Book:
Sixteen-year-old, Skyla Messenger is a dead girl walking.
When her newly remarried mother moves the family to Paragon Island, to a house that is rumored to be haunted, Skyla finds refuge in Logan Oliver, a boy who shares her unique ability to read minds.
Skyla discovers Logan holds the answers to the questions she’s been looking for, but Logan’s reluctance to give her the knowledge she desires leaves her believing Logan has a few secrets of his own.
Skyla’s bloodlines may just be connected to the most powerful angelic beings that roam the earth, and the more she knows, the more danger she seems to be in.
Suddenly an entire faction of earthbound angels wants her dead, at least she still has Logan, or does she?
This was a Kindle free download that has been on my Kindle shelf for a while. Having highlighted this series for it’s awesome covers, I finally decided I needed to read it. Definitely as good as the cover looks. It has been a while since I read a young adult book and I was glad I enjoyed this one as much as I did, so I quickly grabbed the second book, Tremble, and have that on my TBR pile coming up very soon.
This book reminded me a lot of Shiver (Wolves of Mercy Falls) by Maggie Stiefvater, but mainly for the relationship and paranormal element. It isn’t about wolves or running away, but Skyla definitely deals with a lot of the similar situations as Grace did.
Skyla and Logan are a great couple. It’s interesting how the paranormal elements guides the relationships, etc. While inside I’m routing for one thing, once the guidelines of the angelics become known, I knew it couldn’t be that way. But why?
I’m excited to continue the next book and learn how the angelic realms will affect Skyla and Logan. I highly recommend this book to young adult and paranormal/urban fantasy readers. Well worth the money and time. A very quick read. Grab this first book while it's free and get hooked on yet another series!
