“When sixteen year old Charlize finds herself unmistakably lost in the forest with no memory how she got there, it was easy for her to assume the angel face boy who saves her was there to. But little did she know that couldn’t be further from the truth.
With a brush of death, she finds new reasons to live after the unexplained death of her father. Her only regret in last three years was letting the one boy she could have loved get away.
Plunged into a world not of her making, there are those that will hunt her, a foe that calls her Little Queen, and her torn heart. Most of all, she will have to remember and face her memories if she is to survive.”
Reading the first part, questions clouded my mind. The strong need to find answers- even if the story’s just starting, it was there, it was truly intense. This reader was held captive.
Another factor that made me admire the book is Charlize- ladies and gentlemen, the main character. You know that feeling of intensity as well as the stimulation? it was heightened when the character actually reflects you.
As the story flows, I and Charlie are on the same page.Both puzzled, not knowing what to think, who to trust, what to believe and what are the necessary things to do.
The romance on the other hand wasn’t quite what I had expected. It wasn’t dreadful neither terrific. There should be more passion, more feelings. At least chemistry, but there’s none. Thank goodness it wasn’t that awful, actually the love interest of the characters was rather pleasing, more realistic.
Answers finally came at almost half of the book. This reader was very anticipated, she’ll kill for answers because the situations itself are making her crazy. MIND BLOWN! Who would’ve thought that there’d be a bunch of combined shifters, skin-walkers, werewolves, vampires, demons, time weaver, and mind you people, angels. No, this is too much.
Only few questions have been answered, and holy hell as much as I wanted to get mad because of that, it was actually a great thing. The story’s flow was really inviting, the plot was satisfying, also the way it was written, really exquisite.
THAT ENDING! SUCH A CLIFFHANGER, I WANTED MORE. I NEED THE SECOND BOOK ASAP! LIKE RIGHT NOW. I MEAN, WHAT HAPPENED TO PETER? WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO ALEX AND CHARLIZE? WHAT WILL BE HER DECISIONS? QUESTIONS, THERE ARE PLENTY OF QUESTIONS AND THE PILE IS ADDING UP. BOOK TWO, RIGHT NOW! THE FEEEELS.
A PERFECT FIVE STAR FOR THIS ONE!
