Book Description

It could be worse for Sylva Lark. She could be dead. A coma was nothing to that. Or her family moving across country for the treatment, leaving her with a big blue mark on her back.
She can handle it.
Mostly.
Except the mark glows and tingles, especially whenever transition helper Atticus Plot (Attic) is close by. She suspects he’s hiding something, and when she stumbles across a torn body bearing the same spiral marking as her own, that suspicion is confirmed.
After a few shaves with death, the truth finally comes out and the battles begin.
But not all her fights are external; her biggest one is the decision she has to make between doing the right thing for the world and giving up her beloved family for good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story and Memorable Characters October 5, 2011
By Brenda
Format:Kindle Edition
What to love about Veined? Attic. LOVE him. It seems at first like he's going to be the stereotypical hot, mysterious guy. I love a hot mysterious guy as much as anyone, but there's definitely more to Attic. He really made this book for me. He's funny, sarcastic and cocky. His relationship with Sylva, the main character, starts out as antagonistic when he's assigned as her "transition helper" after she returns to school from being in a coma. Neither of them want him there and the relationship between the two is fractious, to say the least. I don't want to give too much away about what happens, but suffice it say that Attic is not at all what he seems -- and when Sylva finds out, it changes everything. Because it finally explains the blue mark that covers her back and the rising dead body count that Attic may or may not be at least partly responsible for. The ending left me reeling...and really really really dying for a sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars My kind of story August 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow. I've forgotten just how good this story is. Right up there with everything I love to write and read. I know the story may not be perfect, but it's my type of thing. So it's perfect to me.

Where to begin? Oh, yes:

The Plot: Is pretty basic for an YA paranormal, though with a twist. Sylva Lark wakes up cross-country and from a coma. Her family has moved there to allow better treatment. Little do the know that Sylva's doctors, as well as Sylva herself, are Guardians - bearers of Angel blood (in their Veins - hence the title) and demon hunters. Sylva must adapt to her new life, find out what's wrong with her and why she has the Vein mark and then decide whether she wants to be a Guardian or not seeing as she'd have to let go of her family and friends. Then, there's Attic, her supervisor and transition helper, soon to become trainer and love interest, and you just KNOW sparks will fly.

What I loved:
- the characters. All of them are awesome and I felt like I really got to know them. Sylva is a protagonist with personality I enjoyed following around. Not ONCE did she piss me off or make me want to scream at her to grow a brain. Even if there were times when she kinda avoided asking the right questions, she at least was aware of it.
- Attic - is not a jerk. He's a tease, which is a lot different. It's Sylva who kinda misjudges him and pushes him around emotionally. He doesn't have that annoying I'll-be-a-jerk-to-you-to-protect-you thing going on, for which I am forever grateful
- the whole process of Sylva making up her mind about becoming a Guardian or not - felt very real to me how her emotions bounced and it made sense.
- the world building - loved everything about it - including the familiar settings of forest and small town.

5.0 out of 5 stars A heroine deserving of the name November 5, 2011
By mareenz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this story. It's so fantastic to see a heroine that is passionate, intelligent, kind, ambitious, and just selfish enough to be real. I love Sylva's independence and her focus, how she values her family and friends. Through her eyes we are gradually introduced into another world - like Sylva, we have it revealed to us piece by piece. And like Sylva, I feel at the end of this novel that I still have a lot to learn. I can't wait for the sequel.

Sylvia Lark, Albelin, Jason, Maddy, Marcus, Attic

A Young Adult Paranormal Romance and coming of age novel, the author, Amyta Sunday, has brought us a unique and interesting take on the tradition angels and guardian stories.

When Sylvia Lark wakes up from a coma she is unable to remember what happened to her or how she came to be in the hospital. Her memory is clouded and much of what she remembers either doesn't make sense or seems somehow fantastical. The doctor isn't much help either, treating her oddly and increasing the surreal feeling she has had since she awoke. But happily for Sylvia, her family soon arrives and she is allowed, oddly, to leave on the same day she woke up. In fact, much of what surrounds her is odd. From the fact that her family has moved while she was comatose to the student who has been assigned to help her transition back into the mainstream in a new school.

Sylvia does have a knack for making friends and is soon surrounded by distraction in the form of Maddy, an offbeat endearing and fun classmate and Marcus, who is the best friend to Maddy and a romantic from his heart to his soul. Then there is Jason who Sylvia connects with initially and is claiming a piece of her heart.

While strange things are beginning to happen around her Sylvia feels she is almost being stalked by the mysterious and drop dead gorgeous Attic. He is in her dreams and is awakening thoughts and desires that have not been part of her life before. But she is Jason's girlfriend, isn't she?

With a complex plot, characters who compel interest, a good storyline that flows with ease, the author has created both human and paranormal characters who interact with ease. The mystery is both believable and complex enough to hold the attention and keep the pages turning.

I would rate this 18+ due to adult sexual situations.

5.0 out of 5 stars On the edge of my seat! May 18, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have NOT finished reading this book yet but I am totally hooked! This is one of the best books I have read in a long time and I got it for free, go figure! fI you want something in the Young Adult area of writing and you want something that is going to keep you guessing, this is the book for you. This is a story that starts out with a young girl in a hospital who wakes up from a coma. The Doctor assigns her a 'transition companion' to help her cope while she is getting back to living her life. HE is also around her age and enrolls in her school to 'keep and eye on her and be there if she needs it', BONUS he is gorgeous! He is also edgy and challenging. She wakes up with some sort of blue circle on her back that 'tingles' whenever he is around. Something is going on in town, people are getting killed, mutilated and she senses it when it happens.

That is as far as I am going to go or I will spoil it. READ IT!
