I love this story! I love the author’s writing! Ann handles so many things quite well, she has woven an intricate narrative with interesting subplots that stretch the story of Eris, trying to fit into a near human society, into a multi-volume set! She has nailed POV so well, no head-hopping from Ann. Eris and some of the supporting characters are in high school or college, so there is lots of relevance for high school students and YA readers. Even though I am an OA, older adult reader, I enjoyed this story a great deal.
I found a handful of spelling errors so I give this book 4.9 of 5 stars! A wonderful read for all but the youngest readers!

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I made no guarantee of a favorable review. Please note that after reading it I signed up to host the book tour.
Whether the word play with the title was intentional or not; it made it unique.
Eris is a young girl whose had it rough; abandoned by her father, an alcoholic mother and constantly being moved around. Now that she and her mother are settled into thier new place, it seems that she may finally be making new friends with the other neighborhood teens however; things are not meant to be.
Eris sees something that she possibly couldn't have seen so she quickly becomes the loner once again. From the minute she sees Matt her life begins to change and the things she discover lead her to life altering discoveries.
I loved reading this book! Mrs. Snizek's writing style quickly pulled me in and kept me captivated until the end. The story line moved along easily and the characters were well developed. Her vivid description of the Lucents and their living environment was extraordinary. I cannot wait to read book two!!!!!!!
