***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Erin Tait is a 15 year old girl, who thinks of herself as a freak. She’s moves to her parents home town of Galladale, where all is not what it seems On her first day at school, she meets Sean Jackson. Instantly she is besotted with him. But this results in her being targeted by a girl called Jessica Watson. She has one warning. Stay away from Sean! But he is everywhere she goes, even in her dreams. Which are soon taken over by Jessica’s threats and actions against Erin are taken in school. Erin is scared, lonely and confused. Who can she turn to? Will Jessica stop this hate campaign? and can Erin control the fire within?
What a clever story! I think Lavinia, who I let wait on this review too long, has done an outstanding job giving us a fresh YA book, with a good message, and interesting characters. The first draft does have some editing errors, but the author re-edited the book and it’s much smoother read, and really lets the reader stay completely engrossed in the story without being pulled out by editing issues.
Erin is a lovely character, she’s strong, resilient, and she really trying to keep her head up despite everything. I love seeing that in YA, because we really need as many strong women as we can get to combat the Bella’s of the world. The action in this book was good and it didn’t seem forced, it seems to flow well and working in a YA paranormal book. I was interested and on the edge of my seat for a lot of the book and have to applaud that, because usually YA books do not keep me on edge, as so many tend to be overly predictable and just have the same underlying story. This book kept me interested with strong story, great action, and a little bit of romance. Sean is such a teenage heart-throb and I thought the bond between Kaseyrea and Erin was beautifully done.
I’d highly suggest this book to readers of YA and even NA, who have a love of paranormal and action with some romance. It’s the beginning of a series, and I can definitely say it made me interested to read the rest of her books!
