Eliyana is used to the shadows. With a birthmark covering half her face, she just hopes to graduate high school unscathed - that is, until Joshua hops a fence and changes her perspective. No one, aside from her mother, has ever treated her like he does: normal - and maybe even beautiful. Because of Joshua, Eliyana finally begins to believe she could be loved. But one night her mother doesn't come home, and that's when everything gets weird. Now Joshua is her new, and rather reluctant, legal guardian. Add a hooded stalker and a Central Park battle to the mix, and you've gone from weird to otherworldly. Soon, Eliyana finds herself in a world much larger and more complicated than she's ever known - a world enslaved by a powerful and vile man. And Eliyana holds the answer to defeating him. But how can an ordinary girl - a blemished girl - become a savior when she can't even save herself?
- Long-winded and poorly executed love-triangle
Wouldn't recommend this series. It is extremely long-winded, and the 2nd and 3rd books in the series get progressively worse. The very prevalent love triangle is poorly executed, and leaves you with a yucky feeling. The fictional world the books are set in is awesome and really intriguing; that was one of the few things I enjoyed about the series.
- Great book! Great CD version, too!
Love, love, love this book and the audio book narrator. Book: great word choices, quality characters, vivid details but not too wordy. Audio book: narrator able to personify a plethora of characters without them all sounding the same, great intonations, excellent pacing.
- I enjoyed this book
A really different kind of spiritual spin.
