There are so many secrets in this book! I was hooked straight away because so, so much was kept from both the reader and Ellie; I was so excited to find out more!
Ellie was a badass from the beginning. She’s strong – both physically and mentally – she has awesome one-liners. She is a fighter through and through. I’m so happy that she’s our main character, rather than some whiney brat!
Will, Will, Will. What can I say? I love him. He reminded me a lot of Dimitri from the VA series, except he talked slightly less and was even more dark and mysterious. And brooding! We can’t forget brooding.
I would also LOVE to see more of mysterious bad-boy Cadan. He only showed up during a couple of scenes, but my god he was amazing. I can’t wait to find out more about him, and to find out what is going on between him and Will! I may be hoping for some Dean/Castiel-esque action!
Another thing I would like to note down – just to say I called it in advance if anything does come of it – is that I’m very suspicious of Ellie’s father. I’m sure that if you read the book, you may realise why, but I will say nothing more other than Ellie’s dad was an ass. Ugh. I actually wanted Will to turn up and punch him in the face. Several times.
You know those secrets that I mentioned at the beginning? Pretty much all of them are still present! Courtney Allison Moulton has really only touched the surface with this first book.
Phenomenal debut from a very talented author! Ms. Moulton has made a brilliant start to this trilogy.
So, guys, do you have this on your TBR piles? I hope you do! If you’ve already read this, I’d love to hear your theories! Are you suspicious of Padre as well? Did you love Cadan? Leave comments below, but no spoilers por favor. We can’t ruin it for anyone! If you would like to discuss theories, email me or tweet me! *grin*
