When Celeste starts at a new school in a small, Kansas town, she hears whispering voices has vivid nightmares, and swarms of blackbirds follow her every move. She is oddly drawn to aloof Rylan, the other new student who has his own secrets. The exact moment she turns seventeen, she wakes up to a bedroom full of strange creatures, purple light emanating from her hands, and Rylan breaking in through her bedroom window. He knows what she is.
I enjoyed this novel. It was not what I was expecting at all. I came across this book while looking for novel that explore the Fae mythology. This is not your typical Sidhe interpretation. But, I kind of liked that.
Celeste was spunky and smart. She was cautious and strong. She worked to learn how to control her powers so she would be able to defend herself.
Rylan played the part of the mysterious rogue. He was so sweet to Celeste, yet he was also serious about their situation. He was very intuitive, and I really appreciated that about his character.
The characters were relatable and the plot flowed smoothly. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Rua.
