Among the many things to change for her that evening are: her physical appearance—from ghastly to breathtaking, an epidemic of night terrors predicting the future, and the blue-eyed man’s unexpected infusion into her life. Not only do his appearances precede tragedies, but they are echoed by the arrival of ravenous, black-robed wraiths on moonless nights.
Unable to decide whether he is one of these monsters or protecting her from them, she uncovers what her father has been concealing: truths about her own identity, about the blue-eyed man, and about love. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with the man of her dreams and risk becoming one of the Soulless.
This was a great read! I was drawn to this book by page one and read it quickly. You cannot help but get pulled into this story with its intriguing methodology of telling its tale. It leaves your wanting more when you put it down (to do things like sleep!) and makes you pick it up to finish its tale. I highly enjoyed and appreciated the writing style, characters, story line and pace of the book. It has mystery, romance, suspense and supernatural aspects. Very much like a Gothic Romance. I do think there will be more books released regarding the extension of this story line (or I hope so!) but it did have a nice ending as is. I would highly recommend for anyone young adult and up.
