Caitlin and Leah are content with the slow and steady pace in their small Texan town. They have the typical challenges of any American high school - evil girl cliques and oppressive ex-boyfriends. They see themselves as painfully ordinary but that soon changes.
The arrival of two newcomers at school sets Caitlin and Leah on an explosive path of magic, betrayal, secrets and forbidden love. The discovery of Caitlin's true identity causes tremendous upheaval in her painfully ordinary life. Caitlin must learn to embrace her birthright and trust in her friends or she risks endangering them all.
I really enjoyed this book - probably more than I thought I would! First off, I loved the relationship between our main characters: Caitlin and Leah. These two girls are closer than sisters - they completely understand each other and become so close that they could read each other's minds. The jokes that they made were laugh-out-loud funny, and there were times that I couldn't help but smile at how much they cared for each other. It made me think of me and my best friend/sister.
Now....let's talk about what you really wanna know - the guys! LOL I loved them!! The two guys' names are Talon and Jace, and of course, they are instantly drawn to our two female characters. And in most novels, instant attraction is an easy way to create a bad & cheesy love story, but I feel like Stephanie Amox did a great job of avoiding the cliches. The love between all four of these characters just felt so authentic and fun. It was a blast to read and I enjoyed watching their love grow stronger throughout the story. Now...did it also move a little too fast, too soon? I would say yes. But then again, I've read enough paranormal romance to know what to expect, and so it actually didn't bother me.
I look forward to reading the next book in this series. I feel like Stephanie Amox has only just scratched the surface with this book, and I can't wait to find out what happens next! Read it and LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!!
