This story follows twin sisters, Ava and Hannah as they are taken from their normal lives and brought into a world of magic. They struggle to understand their past, while learning to control their budding powers, before it is too late. The story does have a solid ending, but gives enough of a hint at things to come that you want to find out what happens in the future books.
While the book has some magic elements, the main story really revolves around the relationship between Ava and Dalton, a magician who is charged with her protection. The perspective change between Ava and Dalton helps the reader get some insights into both characters as their attraction grows and develops.
I gave it four stars for a couple of reasons. I'm not a huge fan of love triangles, I know it's a YA romance thriller, so I should get over it, but with the perspective change from Dalton to Ava, the outcome seems obvious, so having the third wheel in there just doesn't do it for me. (just a personal preference) Also, although I like the story, and the world Cervantes created, some polishing edits are needed to make this a five star rating. Definitely looking forward to some great things in the next book!
Ava and Hannah, seemingly normal New Jersey teenagers, are ensnared in a secret that isn't evident to them or the world as they know it. The soon-to-be graduates find themselves thrust into a realm of fear and anxiety. Protecting them from an evil that could disintegrate their lives forever, unexpected family and new friends whisk the beautiful twins to Shadow Hill where their lives take on a new set of twists and turns.
Dalton, Aiden, and Patrick are at the girls' side, but who can really help them? Heady romance and surprising entanglements abide in this frightening yet sensual thriller. The rolling hills of emerald Ireland put the characters at ease, but not for long because the Sabatinos' darkness is quickly upon them.
An epic final showdown transforms their world upside down and back again with a spine-tingling finale that will leave you wanting for more.
Team Dalton, I'm waiting!
I hope you enjoy the characters as much as I did, I can't wait for volume 2!!
