Amazing!! For a debut novel, the complexity and development of the characters and plot is incredible. I loved Alexa, the female heroine, from the start. She is a very strong, smart young woman who discovers her entire life has been riddled with secrets and lies. She is thrown into a totally foreign world (in the NJ Pine Barrens, gotta love it!!!)and handles things with such strength, maturity and grace.
H.D. Gordon has created a world of supernaturals and put a fresh spin on the old theme. A truly unique world has evolved that offers the reader so much from suspense to love to mystery to fear and on and on. I was drawn in from the beginning and was disappointed when I realized I was at the end. There is so much more of this story left to be told and so many directions it can go. I will be downloading book 2, Half Black Soul as soon as it's available on January 31!!
