Kim found her sister dead and while she ran down the stairs she fell and a man was there which made her forget what she saw. Kim woke up two days later in the hospital. She found out her sister Charley was dead by suicide and that she found her. Kim had no memory, but the one thing she knew was the fact Charley was happy and would have never committed suicide. At the funeral while she spoke for her sister she spotted a man whom she later found out to be Michael.
She goes around and asks all of Charlies friends if she was happy or if she was hanging with someone new or what not. She goes and speaks to a guy named Kevin cause she remembered Charley yelling at him and his co-worker. She later found out that Gage who was Charlies ex-boyfriend was the first creation and was out to hurt humans with magic. He was dating Tia whom Gage taught magic to along with her cousin Kevin.
Michael and Kim decides to work together to stop Tia whom is on a killing spree because she has taken the power of magic to far.
This is a must read. I highly recommend it. I couldn't put it down.
Kim's life is not the norm, but the sadness of being ostracized by teenagers is something readers, young and old, can relate to. That is the magic of this book. Even with the haunting paranormal aspect, elegant and unusual, readers recognize themselves in its pages.
I loved the back-story of the Non-angels and the forces around human life. Clare Davidson develops characters well, leaving the reader engaged, pulled by the nuanced writing.
Continuing the series is a must.
This book is a an original story with a suspenseful storyline. The way it's written, the reader is sucked into the story in such a way as if they were living it with the characters. When the characters mourn, the reader mourns with them. When the characters speak, their words resonate off the page. The story goes through the motions of real life while adding in aspects of magic with magical characters. It's hard to put anything about the storyline in this review without giving something away.
The characters are well written and the details keep your interest throughout the whole story. The story kept me turning the pages and the ending left me wanting more. This story is what happens when you combine teenage angst with magic and mystery. The realization that magic is real is where the story takes one of the many unexpected turns. I honestly couldn't figure anything out and it left me wonderfully guessing. Everything we learn and feel is as the main character Kim experiences it which makes it even more suspenseful. I'm totally happy with the fact that there wasn't a lot of romance in this YA novel because it wasn't missing anything without it. I can't say enough how much I enjoyed it, and I can't wait for book 2.
