Evanescent is a young adult/paranormal book. I read this within a day--unable to put it down. It is slightly different than your usual young adult books with a paranormal theme. Although you can see traces similar to retelling of fairytales and stories like Twilight, this book is its own.

Characters: The book is written in third person narrative mainly following Bronwen. Bronwen is cast into a paranormal world that she didn't know existed when her grandmother had a psychic vision that something was hunting her. Bronwen is sent to an abandoned castle where three boys reside. These are not your typical boys; they cannot die. No, they are not vampires or werewolves or anything like that, but I'll let you read what happened to them. Felix, Alistair, and Loki are friends but more like brothers after spending over two hundred years together. They are fun loving and compassionate. Bronwen is also easy to like and relatable. The characters were fun and complimented each other well.

Plot: The plot moves along well and would be an easy read for most young adults. Unlike most British reads that I have read (yes, I am American-but probably born British in another lifetime), I hardly noticed the few British terms and phrases in this book. The book keeps you wondering the why's and how's at a steady pace, but eventually answers everything by the end. It also has a sweet romance, not heavily done which made it realistic and nice to read.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was a great fast read, and I hated to see it end. If you like young adult books with a paranormal twist, then you should try this book out.

Another great book from Gabriella Lepore. Beautifully written, well thought out and once again, I was absorbed into another time, another world thanks to this Author.

I started this book a little earlier today and read it in one sitting. I absolutely loved it.

Such humour, such wit and yet such a powerful and emotive piece of writing that leaves you with the realization that sometimes we all just... exist. I know I do. My days roll together and I share the feelings these three boys have felt. But finishing this book pushes me to think, maybe I should learn to live. After all, ours is only a fleeting existence.

This is the type of book I'd have loved to pass to my daughters to read. A gorgeous and efficacious lesson is hidden within these pages. A lesson I feel is universal, suitable for all...

Evanescent is about a girl named Bronwen who finds protection with three teenage boys after she discovers she is being hunted by a creature known as a Severen. The three boys aren't ordinary boys though. In fact, they've lived for 200 years already because of the dragon's blood coursing through their veins that gave them eternal life. As Bronwen falls for one of the boys and realizes there might just be a cure for them, she has to come to terms with the fact that life was never meant to be lived forever.

My favorite thing about Evanescent was Felix, the boy Bronwen fell in love with. He was funny and sarcastic. I was giggling from the very beginning because of him. I thought his personality stood out from all the characters. That being said, I can't say I ever really connected with him, the rest of the characters, or the story. I also felt the romantic feelings between him and Bronwen evolved rather quickly. I'm not sure I found their love quite believable. I guess it worked for the pace of the story though.

Speaking of the story, it was bittersweet. I kind of had a feeling where it was going by some of the reviews I read. How everything played out seemed fitting, but I still wish it had ended differently. If you don't mind bittersweet endings, you might enjoy Evanescent even more.

This is a poignant and touching tale any publisher would be proud to publish. It's para-YA with a haunting surrealism to it. I don't need to tell you what it was about, what i will tell you is that it is an emotional journey, one which left me with tears in my eyes. To know peace is the greatest gift, and love is eternal. Love should give peace, but after all their tribulations I hoped they'd age - then die.

I really love the cover of this book although I’m not really sure how it’s connected to the story. But look at it. It’s so lovely, and I’m glad that it is because it made me download the book in the first place.

The book starts out with Felix, Alistair, and Loki. Three young boys that have been poisoned by the witch, Margo Bates. Instead of killing them, they were cursed with immortality. From this prologue, I was already connecting with the three of them, and I really felt sad for them. Yes, they were foolish, but they’re not really terrible people. I think love at first sight is possible because I loved these three from just that one scene.

Fast-forward to hundreds of years later~ Ada Snow, Bronwen’s grandmother has the gift of foresight. And when she sees that Bronwen would be in grave danger, she sends her away to Felix for protection. But things aren’t so simple because Ada has a lot of secrets that she isn’t willing to tell Bronwen. She merely asked Bronwen to trust her, which of course Bronwen did because Ada was her only family left.

There’s a lot of action because of what hunts down Bronwen, and I was definitely scared. It was really powerful, and defeating it was definitely not simple. But I also really wanted to know that everything would be okay. I mean it’s a book so it should be, but of course I need to know exactly what happens. There were so many secrets and mysteries that I just needed to know about! I was just so captivated by the story, and it turned me into an emotional wreck. I got so hung over by this book.

I think that Bronwen has erratic behavior, but it didn’t stop me from loving her.
