"Shadow Scale" by Rachel Hartman
Seraphina has kept her mind safe from intruders, but that also means she’s held back her own gift. It is time to make a choice: Cling to the safety of her old life, or embrace a powerful new destiny? See more

Book Description

A girl totally unaware of her destiny.

Two men who will stop at nothing to take her power.

One family who will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.

After graduating from high school, Meredith is ready to leave the place that has been a constant reminder of what happened to her as a child. She was just eight years old when her family died in a mysterious car accident, taking the secret of her destiny with them. It’s not until a new family moves to town that she realizes leaving may not be as easy as she once thought.

Meredith feels an instant connection towards the Harpers, especially the good-looking, mysterious Blake and his overly friendly sister, Abby. After a series of bizarre events that happen too often to be coincidence, Meredith begins to realize that she is at the center of something larger than herself—possibly the same thing that killed her parents and twin sister many years ago. Nightmarish visions and resurfacing memories push Meredith closer to Blake, leading her to discover her destiny and other buried secrets.

As Meredith tries to understand her new world, she will be put to the ultimate test, and her strength and courage will be challenged more than she ever imagined.

Swift is full of romance and mystery, keeping you guessing until the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal Fantastic September 30, 2012
Format:Paperback
Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Meredith, an eighteen year old girl, has never fit in with anyone around her after the deaths of her parents and her twin sister when she was eight, but she could never figure out why. That is until Blake and his family came to town and then the mystery is slowly revealed to her.

This book was amazing! It was an extremely quick read with in-depth characters and an interesting story line. The story was cute and the relationship between Meredith and Blake had me giggling like a school girl. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Zzzzzzzzz August 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The huge flaw you ask yourself? There is no discerning plot in the book, which is a major problem, like building a house without a foundation. The majority of the book goes by with the reader going along with Meredith to work, sleep, a party, a dinner, a couple of shopping sprees, work again, maybe not such a big problem if Meredith had an interesting voice or thought but she is one of the most blah characters I've ever met. Somewhere near the end something FINALLY happens! I thought I was going to go through reading about another session in the hardware store and choosing colors for the house, but thankfully something happened to break the monotony of the 3/4 of the book,

If I have to read one more book with a misunderstood, hot-but-I-don't-know-it, socially awkward, angst-ridden, I-am-so-different-from-everyone-else heroine I might cry.

Meredith is a loner (surprise!) she has only one friend who she pretty much spends the entire book ditching when she meets him. She spends the majority of the book having dreams, nightmares, unexplained slow motion moments, blinding headaches and awkward conversations. The girls cannot string two sentences together! One would think it normal behavior to be shy around the guy she likes but she is pretty much unable to speak in front of everyone. Between her moments of rudeness, wishywashyness about leaving the town in a few weeks to go to London (I want that library job if she can afford to travel after two months of working) and unreliability as a friend and family member she ended up being a character that I would like to dislike but she is so boring that I cannot even muster the energy to feel that much for her.

Blake and Abby are pretty much a carbon copy of Edward and Alice Cullen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant New Series and Author October 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
When I received this book from the author, I had no intentions of starting it for a least a week, due to hierarchy on my to-do list. However, when went to test the file to make sure it opened on my Kindle, I decided to just take a peek and fell face first into the book until I finished. Oops!

So, this is the 3rd time I have rewritten this review. Sometimes I struggle with what to say about a book because I want so desperately to do right by the author, but feel like anything I write will fall short of my goal. What is my goal? It is to get you to read this book and believe in Heather London's potential. It might not have gotten a "Five Star Must Read" label from me, but I see the big picture here and it is so much more.

Her characters are all likeable. Every. Single. One. Well, maybe not the bad dudes. The story is mature and believable as a paranormal/fantasy novel can be. Not once did I roll my eyes. Chemistry. Blake and Metedith have it and I got that bone aching feeling I crave from books. You've got me hooked if you can evoke those feelings in me. Somewhere towards the end I lost a little of that connection. I am not sure if it had to do with the writing or my distracting children. I suspect the latter.

There is also not much I can say that won't spoil the mystery of the book. It isn't a mystery that is frustrating, but it is intriguing and pulls you in to turn yet another page. I found certain elements of the plot unique and can't wait to see where she takes them in the next book.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit dragging and uneventful, but an okay storyline November 6, 2012
Format:Paperback
One thing you should keep in mind going into this book is that things don't really pick up until well after halfway through the story. That's not to say the first half is boring or anything, just kind of uneventful and you're left wondering what is going on and what exactly the author is trying to write about. The "big mystery" doesn't surface until pretty much two-thirds of the way, and even then, it's a bit vague and I was left with many questions. The story was promising enough, but I felt like author spent too much time on frivolous details and the whole "build-up" only to lead to something sub-par. The paranormal aspect of the story wasn't as monumental as I would've liked given the mysterious synopsis and time spent with the background story.

Meredith is a typical female lead, a little closed-off, which is to-be-expected after such a tragic loss. I liked her character and could see her growth and change throughout the book as she slowly started realizing who she was and her destiny. Blake is the typical brooding male lead and although I liked him enough, I didn't really believe in their love and relationship. It felt rushed and there weren't enough pieces to the "love puzzle" that I would've liked to see. Still, there were some sweet and intimate moments that I always get a kick out of.

You do see some paranormal events happen, and you get to see what exactly is Meredith's power and the mystery behind the Harper family, but it was all rather "blah" for me. Don't get me wrong though, I finished this book rather quickly and with a content feeling, so I liked it enough, just probably not enough to continue with the series.

Swift is, if anything, a decent start-off novel if you're just getting into the paranormal genre.
