Zoe is not happy. On her 25th birthday she heads up to Santa Cruz island. She wants to pick a beautiful spot to end her short life.
The handsome man, Evan, seems to be following Zoe around the island. He catches a glimpse of her on top of the cliff and in that moment he knows what she is going to do. Using a power that is not known to anyone on Earth, he saves her.
Zoe is unsure of what happens. She demands answers from him, and end up finding out more then she wanted to know.
This is the start of a great paranormal series. I can't wait for the next book to come out!
Zoe Thanatos is one of those books that kind of grabs you like a boss and drags you along for the ride of your life, dropping you off at the end to leave you breathless, exhilerated, and totally wow'ed. Seriously, this book rocked my FACE off!
When I read a YA novel, the first thing I look at is the female lead. Is she spineless? Like Bella Swan or Ana Steele? Or is she a freaking bad-ass with nothing better to do than kick butt and dominate (you guessed it) like a boss? Zoe Thanatos is the latter. Her character goes through a HUGE transformation that's absolutely fascinating, and I just loved how just when she thought she had given up, something happened to make her soften her resolve.
Speaking of that "something," we arrive at Evander Nero. Gahhhhh!! <3 That man is SO darn sexy that I just might die. His green eyes sound so beautiful, and his personality is so reserved...he does what he has to do, no matter how much it hurts him to do it. And his relationships with Zoe and the Queen are SO crazy! There's so much tension inside him because he can't choose between one or the other. Personally, I think he should forget about both of them and marry me instead ;)
I absolutely LOVE the concept of this book, too! Alternate universes, nutrition replicators, transporters, royal families intent on destroying one another... Something I don't think I've come across in quite a long time. The action was awesome, and the course of events left me intrigued! It wasn't so difficult to understand that I ended up getting lost, but it wasn't super easy to figure out either. In my opinion, Crystal achieved the perfect balance there.
While there were some grammar mistakes (which, let's be honest, every book has them) and certain things that made me turn my head like "huh?", most of the time I was too engrossed in the story to notice that stuff.
Loved, loved, loved this! I recommend this to anyone who enjoys an action-packed sci-fi fantasy, and just anyone looking for a great read! Fascinating characters, premise, and story-line, leaving me with just enough to want to die in anticipation for Book 2! :)
