Leeny is the next in line to be a Moon witch, one of a long line of powerful witches. On the night of her initiation, she has to witness her mother turning into a different person while fighting a vampire...those of whom the witches set out to destroy/protect humans from.
Although a short story, K.B. Miller has packed this story with witches, vampires, action and intrigue. I was pulled in right from the very beginning and didn't want to it to end, I wanted to find out more about Leeny and what will happen next. If you are looking for a great short read, this is the one for you!!
I can say that I only got through about half of this book and had to stop. I couldn't get into the story and I think it was because of the attitude of Syd and the sexual predator type of teacher in the story. There are very few books that I will not finish even if I'm not interested but I just couldn't force myself to continue.
All I'm going to say is that you don't have to go by my review as this may be your type of story. If you read it and you think definitely I would love to hear your thoughts.
Growing up Joclyn was different than all the others kids, she has scar on the side of face. She doesn't know how it got there it just is and since she doesn't like it, she doesn't want anyone to see it...the only one that knows is her mom.
Ryland is Joclyn's best friend, her only friend. He likes her for what she is, not what she looks like. Joclyn's mother has worked for his father ever since they were 5 years old, so they have grown up together.
Things change on Joclyn's 16th birthday when she gets a letter from her father. A new girl shows up a school, who friends Joclyn and there is strange man that is always around but she doesn't know who it is.
Jocelyn wants to know what is going on and who this guy is and while looking around, her scar is revealed to Ryland and than that is truly when Joclyn's world changes.
I have had this book for a long time now but never sat down to read it, well I finally did and let me let me tell you I don't know why I waited so long! Right from the beginning, you felt something for Jocelyn...a young girl who has no friends, is bullied because she is "different" and just wants to be with her best friend. Than there is Ryland...the best friend that any girl can ask for...he is there when she needs him, boosting her confidence and taking care of here however there is more feelings there that neither of them want to admit too (gotta love a romance).
The story line was fantastic! I thought it moved along at a great pace and I kept wanting to read on to see what would happen next and see what the scar truly meant if anything....and god you can't forget the mysterious man...Illyan, her protecter *sigh*. As the story goes on you will find out more about who Illyan is, her new friend and why Edmund is after Joclyn.
I feel in love with the story right away and was very anxious to read book 2...Definitely a must read!!!
