Alessia lives in Twin Willows, a small town in Maine. She visits her favorite place, a waterfall near the farm where she lives, a place her father showed her before he passed away. As she sits there, watching the water, she notices a black panther staring at her.
One night she has a dream of being a falcon, and then after skipping school one day, she becomes that falcon she dreamed of as the bridge crumbles, killing several people and wrecking the bus she was on. And to complicate things further, there is a new family in town and she falls hard for the son, Jonah. His father is head of a group of people that want to put a power plant where her favorite place is, the falls
She learns of the Benandanti and since she is one, decides to follow them. Their counterpart, the Malandanti are evil. What are they up to and what does Alessia find out about herself and the boy she loves.
I really like this book and cannot wait for the next one so I can continue reading the story. The characters are real and the scenery that the story takes place is beautiful. I would recommend this book to those that like fantasy and nature, and those concerned about the environment.
If you're not familiar with this story or what it's about, let me fill you in a bit. Alessia grew up in a small boring town of Twin Willows on the family dairy farm. Nothing exciting happens there until the alluring Wolfe family moves to town and brings with them their handsome son, Jonah. Alessia is drawn to him and he is to her. She soon finds out that she is part of the ancient group called the Benandanti, who are mortal enemies of the Malandanti. They are shifters who shift into animal form and protect magical places.
In this book, Alessia is not aloud to speak of her Benandanti side. She starts to try to speculate who is Malandanti after she is targeted in a bus crash. it leaves the reader trying to figure out who is on what side as well. But if you are a quick study, you can pick up rather quickly who is on what side even before you get half-way through the book. Once I got to the half-way point, I couldn't wait to finish the book to find out what was going to happen. However, with the slow start and the guessing right off who is who, I could only give this one 3 stars, but I still can't wait to read the sequel, In the Mouth of the Wolf, due to hit shelves June 9th 2015.
I really liked this book, I could not put it down and stayed up late reading it. This book was amazing, I am super sad that I finished it and have to wait for the next one. I would recommend this book to anyone who liked Otherkin by Nina Berry or to anyone who likes animals and worries about the environment.
