The take on this subject is what sets it apart from other books. I was a bit confused when I first started reading it but just when I thought, huh? or I thought I knew where it was going-- I get dealt a total curveball that I totally don't see coming. It's so contrary to everything else, I don't want to spoil it for you so I'll leave it at that. Let's talk characters a bit.
The story is told from Evangeline's POV. I found her to be very likeable and appealing. I often wanted to hold her & make things alright. She goes through a lot before and during the events of this story. In many ways, I feel that because she did go through so much...it prepared her for the challenges she now faces.
I fell in♥love (yeah, I know...I do that a lot. I just can't help myself. lol) with Caden. Love that name. Caden. Okay, I'll stop saying it. He's pensive, good-hearted and so spicy-hot. I didn't quite know what to make of him in the beginning but by the end...I wanted him for myself.
The other characters were pretty awesome, too. Sophie-you never quite know what she's up to which keeps you on edge and then there's Amelie & Fiona-I want friends like this. I found all the characters had depth and intrigue.
So if you are seeking a paranormal YA read with a killer twist this is the book for you.
I want to thank Kathleen for providing an e-copy of Anathema in exchange for an honest review.
