My rating- 5 stars
Synopsis- Alexis Ames decides to learn who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their secrets closely. After meeting Tristan Knight and discovering that he's not normal
either, the secrets begin to unravel. Their union brings promise to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy. Because they are a match made in Heaven and in Hell.
My Review - Alexis, over time, wonders if the attack had been real or whether it was a dream or part of her very overactive imagination
and her mum shrugs it off completely. After moving away and starting collage she bumps in to Tristan Knight and from there a romance sparks, but its a romance like no other and many secrets encircle it and threaten to end it.....which of course just CANT happen because they make a fantastic couple!!!
There are so many things that make this book different. Firstly, Tristan's and Alexis' relationship. It is by no means a whirlwind romance where three days later they confess their undying love and they all live happily ever after....no, this takes time to build, weeks and months. The scenes during which they get to know each other kept me rivited! the tiny flares of romance knotted my stomach and then, when they finally kissed???? wow!
Secondly this book created a new species, actually two new species which is very refreshing. It moves away from vampires and werewolves and witches and all those other things that have become
very samey-samey. The author gave these species a culture, a hierarchy, a history and good reasons for why they are at war with one another.
Thirdly...the ending....I cant talk about the ending because you need to READ it! All I can say is its not all daisies and rainbows. This book is full of love, humour, hardships, broken hearts and action and its a MUST read for everyone. Though this book is not for young eyes! There are a few naughty bits that compliment the story very nicely.
I personally cant wait to read the second book and really wish I had discovered this book much early.
Number 2 here I come......
