Review by Greta van der Rol:
This book starts off with a fairly routine YA premise - asixteen year old girl (TJ) finding herself dumped on her estranged father whenthe mother she despises dies. Coming from a wealthy, upmarket life style and aprivate school, she's faced with a new life in an impoverished, dying miningtown where Latinos do what they can to survive. TJ's brother, Tony, the onlyperson who cares about TJ, is a serving soldier due to return to activeservice, leaving her to cope on her own. Before he goes, he makes her promiseto keep away from Roman, a young man working for her father.
It's obvious TJ isn't going to keep away from Roman. Butmany things about this novel are not obvious.
And then there's Roman. He's described as a seventeen yearold juvenile delinquent who is sent to live with Ben as a form ofrehabilitation. From the outset it's obvious he is dark and dangerous. But howdangerous? And who to?
In a way this is the usual YA coming of age story, but it isso much more. There's a thread of dark fantasy - or call it myth - which beginsas a hint, then coalesces in the latter part of the book and brings it to athumping, heart-stopping climax. It's a book about love, acceptance, sacrificeand redemption on many different levels. The characters are all well-developed,real people with pasts and futures and reasons.
The writing is sensual and evocative. This is no skim read.You have to pay attention or you'll miss things. Perhaps that is my onlycriticism. The description is rich and real.
I really enjoyed this book. My YA days are far behind me andit would be sad to imagine that this is just a story for 'teens'. It's not. Igive it *****.

At first I wasn't really sure what to think about this book, the story absolutely floored me. I was never quite sure where it was going, but was very willing to keep reading to figure it all out. The electricity between Roman and TJ is so immediate you just "feel" that there is more than meets the eye there. The trouble being TJ promised her brother Tony to stay away from Roman. Add in TJ's mom has died, and she is being moved in with a dad she hasn't seen since she was five. From a wealthy life to an impoverished one, TJ must make a lot of changes.
I most certainly never expected the twists and turns this book took, it took my breath away and left me filled with absolute admiration for Kennedy Streath. The style this book was written in was also new to me, I must say I truly enjoyed it, it's almost a rough and gritty form of story telling. I look forward to the next book, you have made a fan for life! Many thanks for gifting me this ebook so I could read and review it.

When I started reading this book, I wasnt sure I was going to like it. It begins with a teenage girl who has just lost her mother, if you could call her that, and then had to go live with a father that left her when she was an innocent 5 years old and had no idea what was going on. I expected this to be a story of her finding her place in a small town, learning to love her father and all peaches and cream in the end. this was not the case at all! Much to my surprise and excitemnet, it was anything but peaches and cream. We fairly quickly learn that there is another plot entirely at work here. The father is an ex drunk just trying to get by, relying on a priest to help him make decisions and his son, who we find out the priest practically raised because the of the fathers habits and that's just the beginning. We meet Roman, a dark soul who appears to be a troubled teen but in reality is so much more. He becomes the unsuspected hero and protector to the girl who really has no idea what she has walked into with this family and town. All this and we havent even talked about the brother and his girlfriend!! The brother seems like there is so much more to him but it is held back. We get just enough to keep us wondering about him. I am really anxious to see his story in the upcoming book!
this book is full of twists and turns and I just could not put it down! When it ended, I was like "what!! that's all? There is so much more that I want to know!" I highly recommend this book, just keep going past the teenage girl coming into her own thoguhts and before you know it, you will be transported into something deeper, darker and so much more intriguing!!!

When I started reading this book I had the impression that it was going to be a coming of age story about a teenage girl dealing with the loss of her mother.It kind of had a bubble gum feel to it.But boy was I ever wrong, because it turned out to be much,much more.Indeed it is about a teenage girl dealing with issues, but not by any means issues any of us had to deal with as teens.Kennedy Streath has written characters with many marvelous layers and by the time those layers are peeled back you are knee deep in paranormal magma.Kennedy gives you just enough information to make you yearn for more.When all is said and done this book was an amazing read,very well written and had all the wonderful qualities that made it into a bonafide page turner.

This was a book that immediately twisted my expectations. At the beginning it seemed like a typical coming of age saga, young girl goes to live with her estranged father - but it was so much more. Roman is darkly dangerous, a smouldering hidden threat that TJ's brother warns her to avoid. Like all teenage girls, of course she doesn't listen and is plunged into so much more than she ever expected. The description is lush, evocative, sensuous. Kennedy Streath paints word pictures that plunge you into the heart of the conflict. This isn't writing for the faint of heart or the 'easy' reader - but it is well worth the trouble. This is the kind of prose that makes you sit up and pay attention and I couldn't tear my eyes away until the very last sentence. I'm eagerly awaiting more in this world and from this writer.

3.5 stars.

I didn't get the hype. I tried...I really did. I wanted to like this book. My official blog review...

I was intrigued by the synopsis for this story as I’m a big fan of the Paranormal genre, be it television, movies and now books; however, it pains me to say that I wasn’t able to get into this story as I had hoped. The book started off too past faced leaving me confused. Characters were introduced so quickly and I was losing track of who was who at first. Internal monologues threw me off. I couldn’t tell if the characters were remembering past conversations or just pondering to themselves. I also had a difficulty relating to the characters; which made it difficult for me to follow along with the story and feel for these characters. I neither liked nor disliked TJ and Roman, I just didn’t feel an instant connection with them as I have with past reads. I had high hopes for this read and it’s possibly just me but I wasn’t a fan. Everyone has their preferences and I know this book received many 5 star reviews but based on my experience with this story, I’m only able to give it 3.5. It pains me to do so as this is my first 3.5 review.
