Editorial Reviews

Review

McAtee tossed out all of the traditional rules of the paranormal romance genre, making this story fresh and unique. While it may be refreshingly different, fans of paranormal romance won't be disappointed! This is a fun, entertaining story with remarkable and memorable characters that you will root for, fall in love with, and cry over. Even the ones you are supposed to hate you will love because Martina McAtee is that good! -- Reader's Favorite


McAtee's tale is a cut above most attempts in the popular supernatural YA genre.Her characters are considerably more complex than the norm, which makes themfar more believable, despite their superpowers. --Kirkus Review

The story has all the paranormalcreatures you can think of that give it an eerie and creepy feel, andthe diverse characters make the plot adventurous and at the same timeenchanting. Definitely a must-read for all readers who like paranormalactivities. --Reader's Favorite
