Oh the surprises you find on amazon.
Arianna was born on the wrong side of the tracks. Her mother is a freeloading drunk who picks up men at every chance she gets. So Arianna is use to moving from town to town and cleaning a bit of her mom’s mess. Tomboy all the way even down to the bike she owns, Arianna moves to a new town, falls for the cute rebel with a story also exactly like hers and then begins seeing a strange man in the middle of the street.
But of course that is never it. At a night out with her new friends she discovers she has abilities that are of course not human. She is swept away by the strange man who knows more about Arianna than she knows herself. ANDDDDD this is when the book ends.
This book is part one to what I am assuming the first book. I really didn’t appreciate that because the book was picking up. Granted it is a great thing for the author now everyone would have to buy the second part. But I am weary of that because if it stops like part 1 did then I probably won’t buy part 3.
But anyway over the book was a good read. There was a lot of clichés in the book. 18 year old tomboy, who drives a motorcycle, smokes cigarettes and lives in a trailer park with her drunken and promiscuous mother. Arianna has no dreams for the future, no plans, simply graduate high school. I thought this was way too cliché in regards to her being this portrayed bad girl.
What I did like about the story was the build up and the fact that Arianna wasn’t a reckless girl but was grounded enough to not have a screw the world attitude.
Overall the book gets 8 out of 10. The biggest problem with the book is it stopped when it was getting good/to the point and that was a let down because for 12 chapters you watching it build and then it stops. Also the book is not labeled Young Adult although it centers an 18 year old.
