About the Book~
Jessie moved from New York to North Carolina one week after school let out for summer break. Her newly single mother and Jessie move in with grandma Gayle. Being a teen in a retirement area, is one more thing to add to her ‘this sucks’ list. It’s bad enough to have to move, but even worse her alcoholic father left them as he went on a quest to be an artist in Greece.
Things begin to look up when she is reintroduced to Caleb, the dorky boy that saved her life one summer at the beach. Caleb is no longer scrawny and nerdy, he is now tall, dark and handsome. Caleb is a Light Tamer.
Jessie and Amber become fast friends. Amber is a no frills girl, her snarky comments and sassy attitude will raise a few eyebrows and have you laughing out loud. Amber is rough around the edges, a light tamer with only two years left to find the one she is bound to. Her father’s surfing accident left her dad paralyzed and her brother dead.
This paranormal romance will keep you on the edge of your seat with humor, romance, and determination. Fall head over heels for Caleb and Jessie.
My Thoughts ~
I must confess that reading this particular title I was reflecting upon how much I love to read young adult (YA) books. They tend to be quicker reads than some novels, but can also contain rather compelling stories.
Devon Dawson has done a wonderful job bringing the main characters to life and getting the reader ‘hooked’ on them. This is one of the review books I’ve recently read and enjoyed to the point of wanting to hear more about the characters without having to wait for another book to be written.
While this is a paranormal book, you won’t be finding the typical vampires or werewolves on the pages. Instead, Devon pulls from other areas of mythology and has set the stage for a battle between light and dark. To liven things up and possibly emphasize how humans have free will, those that possess power for great good (the light tamers) can ‘go dark’ and cross to the other side.
With the suspense created in this first title of a planned trilogy, I am joining the ranks of book lovers waiting for the next one to be released.
