Told as a paranormal fairytale, with science-fiction and dark-mystery/thriller overtones, the main character, Ellie, has discovered an ancient world that exists within, and alongside, our own. To survive the mysterious and dangerous, she has to learn what she has become since her death, where her strength really resides, and how to love and be loved. Unbeknownst to her, destiny’s stop watch is counting down, secret organizations are watching her every move, and her family’s past may destroy her future.
Well, well, encountered feelings toward this book that ended up in a very good sentiment.
I say this because at the beginning I honestly wasn’t sure what I was reading, each chapter talking about different people and things that didn’t seem to connect at all but then as the story develops I understood a little bit more and the ending really gave closure to those loose ends that were bugging me. And it was like OMG!
The story goes around two main characters that are Ellie and Christopher, both have complex personalities and some personal baggage that make them incredibly appealing as protagonists.
But there are many other characters, not as important but entirely interesting as well, such as Ann and James, our green eyes bad guy or Lune (the most incredible dog I’ve ever read about!) He is just A- MA – ZING!
As weird as it sounds, the dog is probably my favorite character in the whole book!
You’ll understand what I mean if you read it.
Anyway, my feelings went up and down, I laughed with them but also felt their sadness. At one point my heart just shattered! And the end… oh that end! What will happen next???
The plot is completely ORIGINAL and left me wanting to know MORE!
Luckily I have the second and third book in the trilogy to satisfy my curiosity! YAY!
