My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Kate seems to have it all: A great family, an amazing best friend, and the perfect boyfriend. But after a horrific accident that kills her parents, Kate has been gifted to see others auras. Unsure how to deal with this new ability, tries to muddle through her senior year of high school. Then Patrick enters the picture, and he has no visible aura for her to read. After struggling between trusting him and running away, she discovers that Patrick is her Guardian, and with his help, she starts to prepare against the Demons who are coming after her and her family.
I’ll be honest (always a good thing), and I almost stopped reading this book after the 3 chapter. For me, the beginning was too much like Evermore by Allyson Noel and I DID NOT like that book. But thankfully, through the peer pressure of others who had read this book, I kept reading, and discovered that I really liked this book. I mean, there is romance, adventure, mystery, and enough twists and turns to keep any reader guessing.
I always enjoy a good surprise when I’m reading a book, and Ms. Frost does not disappoint in this book. I really enjoyed the twists that Ms. Frost had in this novel. I didn’t seen half of them coming, which is always a wonderful surprise. The grandfather was a great character who showed surprising flexibility. And then Toni – Best character ever! He is both a smart-ass and a wise man, and Ms. Frost balances that out well enough that, as a reader, I didn’t find a conflict of personality. And best surprise of all was the set up for the next novel. Can you say cliff-hanger?
I got occasionally confused on who was the speaker in some of the chapters. Though primarily, it was from Kate’s POV, there occasional chapters of Patrick’s POV kind of through me, especially when I would have to stop mid-chapter.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I highly recommend this book, and I am looking forward to reading more by Ms. Frost.
