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.
First. I am not a fan of present tense books, so when I started reading, I groaned. I was like nooooo, but the author handled it well, and I hardly noticed it as I was swept along into the story.
Second. Although the protagonist is 16, the book handles hard issues that many teens face such as suicide, sex, divorce and dealing with grief, so parents might want to preview it first. Here again, I think she handled it well while keeping it real.
Now for the story. Kim Welles finds her older sister dead, wrists slashed. She freaks out, runs to get help, trips down the stairs and slams into a man. He touches her forehead, tells her to sleep, forget. The next thing Kim knows she is waking up in the hospital and doesn't remember any of it. When her parents tell her that her sister committed suicide, she refuses to believe her happy-go-lucky sister would do such a thing, and Kim is determined to find out who killed her and why. As Kim unravels the mystery, the story speeds up and the tension builds, and we are in for one wild ride.
The characters felt real and kept you guessing whose side they were really on. The paranormal characters seemed like angels to me, but with different names & their own history. Although, I don't like to read books about angels, fallen angels, I liked how she explained their existence, giving us a feel of living an alternative reality, helping us to suspend disbelief rather than trying to apply our reality to the book's story.
It was a good, thought-provoking read, and I'm curious to see what is next in this series.
