Daire doesn't exactly live the life of an average teenage girl. Of course having a mom that is a famous make-up artist how could she? She has trotted the globe growing up on movie sets ever since she could remember. So while traveling and hanging out with movie stars should be a good thing it's not all the glam it's cracked up to be. Especially when she starts having these weird visions that get worse and worse until she flips out in a foreign county and attacks her movie star crush. All this landing her in a small New Mexico town with a grandmother she never even knew she had a few days ago. Yea everything in Daires life is about to change...

This book was a little slow to start in the beginning. I mean there was action but it just doesn't really pull you in until about 160 pages of so. But after that it really starts to fly, sucking you into the plot. I loved the whole idea of the Seekers and the Native American background that is so dominant in the story. It was nice to see a new supernatural element brought to the Ya Paranormal world for a change. And Daire was perfect for the job. She is easy to like and true to her character throughout the whole book.

Then there is the whole take on the "good twin, bad twin" scenario between Dace and Cade. Where Cade is all bad and evil; Dace is all nice and swoon worthy. I just wish we would have had a little more time spent on the relationship between Dace and Daire. Maybe brought them together a little sooner so we could have watched that grow a bit more. The action definitely takes the front seat in this story. Still I'm thinking we will get more Dace and Daire in book two now that they have an established relationship, and I for one can't wait to get more Dace! lol

Overall, while I still miss the Immortals series, Alyson Noel doesn't disappoint with her new take on the supernatural.

Greta is Erikasbuddy awesome review!

Doesn't Riley have her own series? Have you read those?

Darkfallen Riley does have her own series but Riley is like 12. Which makes me thinkg that its gonna be more of a middle grade series and I don't read those.

Greta is Erikasbuddy YUP! I just checked on AMazon... it's for ages 9 and up. I was thinking maybe they grew her up a bit.

I want to read that book about the werewolf on the Titanic... I thought it was this author but it's not (haha! I checked)


It's from the chick that rights the Evernight books. Oh,.... that makes sense... Evermore... Evernight.

Darkfallen Yea Riley can't grow up bc she is dead. Lol

Greta is Erikasbuddy SHe died? LOLZ!! Wait... why does that make me laugh?

She just wanted to be with her dog lolz!!

Darkfallen No her and her dog all died in the beginning of the first Immortals book. The Roley series is from beyond the grave

Greta is Erikasbuddy Oh yeah!! I forgot that Riley was the ghost. DOY!!
