The title and the cover got my attention. I think the cover's cool and otherworldly. This author has been added to my list of authors that I want to continue reading. I probably should make an actual list because I have the brain of a goldfish. I love fairies but haven't read many books about them. The only one that comes to mind is The Dresden Files.
I wish this book had chapters because I'm odd when it comes to reading. Unless I'm out read walking I prefer to finish a chapter before I stop reading. This book is broken up into parts instead but that's a minor thing. I really enjoyed this book. I want to read the next one and the one after that right now. I want to find out what happens next.
This book starts after the death of Noa's sister Isla. They were both going to boarding school and lived there. After Isla's death Noa becomes a commuter. She continues to go to the same school but lives at home with her parents and her little sister Sasha. I really don't know anything about boarding schools but I found it a little odd that a three year old would be allowed to go to one. Obviously the parents aren't doing well since losing a child tops the list of worst things to happen ever. I do think it is great that Noa's dad seems to know his daughter better than the mom does since he knew Noa was the one that wrote the poems.
Callum enters the picture and things get a little wild. This is a fun read with fae, romance, betrayal, and a shocker with that huge plot twist that totally took me by surprise. I really didn't see that coming. I really love Lauren's writing style and it was cool seeing the poems that Noa wrote sprinkled throughout the book. This is another book in a long line of books that makes me wish for a Tardis so I can travel to the future and get another fix sooner rather than later. I am really looking forward to reading more by this author. This is her debut book and I have to confess that I'm already hooked.
