Book Review

"Part mystery, part fantasy, this beautifully-written page turner explores guilt, mercy, and love."—New York Times bestselling author Holly Black

Briony has a secret. It is a secret that killed her stepmother, ruined her sister's mind, and will end her life, if anyone were to know. She has powers. Then Eldric comes along with his golden lion eyes and a great mane of tawny hair. He is as natural as the sun, and he treats her as if she is extraordinary. And everything starts to change . . .

  • Breath of fresh air in bog of twilight clones.

    By Karen Poon
    This book has restored my faith that there are still books worth reading in young adult fiction after all the twilight clones that we've been seeing. The writing style is pretty unconventional but is easy to get used to and works well to convey a unique mood. The plot kept me guessing to the end which has also lead me to hope that I can still be surprised by a supernatural murder mystery. This is definitely a new favorite!

    Clever, witty dialogue. Great characters. An entire book of quotable quotes. The plot was confusing at times and I thought the setting could have been explained better. That said, it was the best book I've read in a great while. A breath of fresh air in the YA genre. Loved it!

    This is a truly incredible book. I've read it at least twice already. The characters are all very relatable, especially Briony, who is outspoken, often snarky, witty, clever, and rather a feminist during a time in which such qualities were not as desirable as they are today. Eldric is quite the same, witty and clever, with a touch of arrogance. Despite her mental disability, Rose is an outstanding character. The supernatural elements of this book are very true to their beginnings. The entire story is gripping and full of excitement, desire, love, deception, wit, sarcasm, and all the things that make a wonderful book.

  • Wonderful!

    Why: -Briony is self-deprecating; not so much that she looks like shes trying to get attention, but she does it in a way thats seems perfectly reasonable. funny, even. -detailed descriptions that don't weigh the book down -engrossing voice -i can't remember the rest since i've read this a few months ago. but i still remember it was awesome. for a better review, look it up on google.
