*As spoiler-free as possible*
The story begins when a wonderfully witty, kind, fiercely loyal outsider suddenly finds herself in the unenviable position as the newly anointed ‘popular girl in school’ after saving the life of a mysterious, handsome stranger. What follows is one jaw-dropping revelation after another.
Characters: Loved them all. A few standouts for me include Mya, John/Daniel, and Charlie. Mya, the main character, just screams ‘huggable.’ She wears her heart on her sleeve, is 100% loyal to her loved ones, and wants to do what’s right and just. So huggable! John/Daniel is Mya’s leading man and is quite the charmer. Then, there’s Charlie. I’m just going to say it: I’m a total Charlie fangirl. LOVE this character so much! He’s got the perfect mix of smart-alecky fun and endearing charm.
World & Story: Susan has created a deep, dark, layered world where the creatures are at odds and the characters find themselves caught between love, history, and family obligations. I’m looking forward to spending more time in these supernatural societies as the series progresses.
Overall: Wonderful character connections, intriguing mythology…and an incredible ending that will leave you gasping.
