-- My Thoughts --
Fantasy has always been my genre. Add a bit of paranormal, a touch of romance, and everyone will get hooked. Although I am not a fan of long series, this one looks like it might get to the top of my favorites shelf. No wonder it's a New York Times bestseller...
Ethan thought he lived in a small town where everyone knew every one's secrets. Where boredom lurked in the shadows and nothing new happened. But he was wrong. Everything changes in Gaitlin, when the mysterious Lena Ducheness arrives. She will turn Ethan's life upside down. Steal his heart away. And he will learn that his small town is build on secrets darker than a moon-less night.
The mystery and the revelations were the first thing that captured me in this book. The anticipation of the end, of the first kiss, of whatever was next, was wonderful. I don't know how the two authors worked it out, but it flowed flawlessly.
These reviews for the popular books are always the hardest to write, since there are so many reviews out there, that you don't know what new things to write about it. One thing that is sure about this is that I am dying to go back into Lena and Ethan's world. Such a diverse bunch of great characters...
