It's All Things Bookish....
Because Life is short and there is so much to read, read fast!
A witch’s magical orbs. Clan Wars that have lasted centuries. A heritage shrouded in secrecy.
Welcome to seventeen-year-old Banon Andreeta’s world.
Banon is a child of Clan Genae and can do things most people can’t. Which might account for her rebellious behavior. Or maybe she’s just a magnet for trouble. Either way, she’s in hot water more often than the average teen.
When she rejects Fred, a random creep at the mall, she makes an enemy who will bring unwanted attention from Clan Julae, her own clan’s mortal enemy.
She also makes a friend in Clan Julae – the intriguing Hadley. Drawn to each other, neither understands the forces behind the attraction. Or that they are from opposing clans. Hadley only knows Banon is in danger and he must protect her.
But the long-standing Clan War is not as much in the past as the Genae thought. Their very existence is threatened by enemies known and unknown. And the only thing between them and death is Banon. A secret weapon even they don’t know they have.
This is a story that started centuries ago and now it's time for it to end. However, things are rarely predictable in the real world, especially when magic is involved. I absolutely loved it for a number of reasons. Firstly, it's a very imaginative story that kept me on my toes through out the book, nothing predictable happened here. Secondly, I loved the characters, Banon more than anyone else. She is a teenager who doesn't know how to act normal, her character is quite interesting and fun to read. She made me laugh quite a few times. Thirdly, Jordan Elizabeth's way of writing is just as good as always. I have yet to read her book that I didn't like. She is among the authors I'd one-click without even reading the blurb. So, there is that. It's a great fantasy novel with lots of twists and turns, adventure, romance, action, and a hint of mystery. All is all a perfect mix. I'd definitely recommend it to all my fellow readers, hoping that they enjoy it as much as I did.
Banon is not a normal teenager. She has always been able to do things that no normal girl of her age could. Her parents think that she doesn't know her origin, but she knows more than she lets on. Life isn't perfect, however, it's not bad either. She has caring friends, a loving boy-friend, and amazing parents (even though they get on her nerves from time to time). Then suddenly everything that can go wrong goes wrong. She angers the wrong person and a lot of skeletons come tumbling out of the closet. Apparently, there was more to the story than anyone knew. And they're about to find out.
Hadley has never been a brave person. Even though he hates himself for his weakness, but it's better to go along with his brother Fred than cause trouble. Fred would kill him in an instant. There was no love lost between the two. So, even though it kills him inside he cannot do anything against his brother or his clan. That's about to change though. As soon as he meets Genevieve he knows that he must protect her, no matter what, this time he won't let her dies... because now it's time for them to live...
This book made me cry as much as it made me laugh, it's a tragedy as well as a happily-ever-after story. I'm glad that I got a chance to read it. There wasn't a single boring moment in this book. It's definitely a five-stars read that, I think, everyone would love.
P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book.
