Jax and the rest of her friends felt a little on the thin "side" at first, they were flat. Therefore my connection problems. There was no real depth in the emotions they displayed. Especially from Jax I expected more, besides her daily anxiety for discovery, since she's our main character. Besides the lack of heartfelt emotion I had also problems with the whole running away scheme. I know it's not easy, running for your live and building a whole new existence somewhere else. But everything went too smooth, to the point that it made me skeptical (I know, maybe watched a bit too much movies, but still...). Fortunately later on everything changed for the better and was I fully connected to lively, full characters and a story where not everything went as Jax thought it would go.
Talking about Jax, I really loved her honesty. When she arrived at the point where she could not hide her identity anymore, she didn't postpone the inevitable, didn't try to come up with excuses, but just told the truth. Even if it might be the end of her friendships. Cause who can be friends with the hunter, when you're the one he hunts?
The plot was nice too and it was not the usual story where someone transfers to a new school. No here we have a young girl running for her life. Only so she can be different, so she doesn't succumb and gives in to the dark side (oooh Star Wars moment ;) ). It was amazing to see how thorough Jax had considered everything. Nothing was left to chance. Much attention was paid to the temptation of giving in, to become evil, to use her powers again. And Jax had to try to refuse, cause otherwise she would be found.... Throw a very handsome Hunter in the mix and some romance and I'm in.
A light and enjoyable story, once you're able to get across the halfway point. Before I felt the characters a bit on the "flat" side and had some trouble with getting into the story. But from the moment when there's some puzzle the solve, the real story finally began and I was genuinely glad that I kept reading. It did help that there was a cute hunter and an even cuter witch, with a not so common story and I was a happy reader.
Jaxina Pherson a.k.a Jax Taylor is on the run from her family, an evil coven of witches. Leaving is the ultimate betrayal, punishable by death. A fact that Jax was made all too aware of when she witnessed her father take her mother's life, years before, when she'd tried to escape.
Wanting nothing but a normal life, Jax runs away to a small town, but with the threat of her coven discovering her wereabouts always in mind. She daren't use her powers as that will leave a signature which will lead them right to her.
Jax soon finds out that her coven is not the only thing to worry about, though. An almost run-in with a Hunter and her life changes forever. Especially when the Hunter turns out to be, Keller Dawes, the gorgeous guy whom she instantly feels an attraction for. Jax's wish to lead a normal life as a teenage girl brings a whole new set or problems as well. Her drop-dead gorgeous looks have every boy in school following her like puppy dogs, and almost every girl hating her for this. She finds an ally in, Toni, Keller's cousin and they become best friends. But Jax isn't so lucky with the Queenbee of Baker Gap High , having stepped on her toes one too many times she finds herself the ridicule of Stacey's jealousy, which quickly stirs the deep, dark emotions, Jax has tried her best to ignore.
Just as Jax starts to settle in to her new existence, a life or death situation forces her to reveal what she really is. Will it make any difference to her friends? And what about Keller? Will his Hunter instinct turn him against her, or will she be able to persuade him otherwise?
The appearance of another deflective witch raises more problems, and when Jax's new friends find themselves face to face with the evil she is evading, does she have the power to save them? Jax's biggest decision comes when she must decide if staying and putting her friends in danger is the right thing to do, or if leaving the only option.
I loved the flow of this story. It was filled with so much emotion and at times I felt a spasm in my heart. Each character is wonderful in their own right, and I enjoyed the banter between the girls while getting ready for Homecoming, and the even the relationship between the male characters. It felt very real. Keller is a total hottie, and his sincerity and protectiveness is like a warm blanket on a cold winter's night. The ending leaves the promise of great things to come and I cannot wait to read the other books in this series.
I recommend this book to all lovers of paranormal romances. Although the characters are teens, and the setting is highschool, I believe the story will connect with readers of all ages.
