I really enjoyed this YA novel. Something about Llona drew me in from the beginning. She is living with her Uncle as her parents were killed (at different times) by a Vyken. A Vyken hunts Auras because if they drink the blood of an Aura then they can walk in day light. Problem is, you don't really know who they are. All that Llona knows is that she thinks one has found her, probably the one that killed her parents, and she is tired of running.
All the way through this novel I kept asking myself - is it him? or is it him? It wasn't until the very end that we find out for sure who the Vyken is that is after her. But upon learning that secret, we also learn another secret - one that I don't think Llona really processed at the end of this story, but I am sure will show up in the next book.
I really liked Christian and Llona's relationship too. It would be so hard to hold back from a first love, especially when you are sure they have feelings for you too. I like the way that they learned about each other and from each other. I have a feeling that Christian will show up in another book as well.
Llona could do some very creative and interesting things as she learns to manipulate her Light. I can't wait to see what she will do in the future! One of the things that I really liked about this book is that it really kept me guessing. I sort of knew who the Vyken was, but had no idea what he was going to do next. I didn't see the ending coming at all - but it was pretty cool!
