Helen Hamilton has always tried to hide how different she is—no easy feat on an island as small as Nantucket, and only getting harder as she finds herself haunted by hallucinations and vivid nightmares.
It's not until she crosses paths with Lucas Delos at school that Helen's true heritage is finally revealed. Yet even as Lucas helps her awaken to her startling powers, they can never be together—not unless they can break free from the tragic destiny the Three Fates have in store.
This book managed to completely steal like two nights of my life. I've been incredibly busy, so when I finally managed to eek out some time to read before bed, I didn't have any intention of staying up super late. Um, yeah, not what the book was going to allow for. I read far into the night and loved every minute of it. The characters and setting in this book were just way too much fun. There were some serious similarities to the aspects that I enjoyed most in Twilight (I know, I know, but I really enjoyed the warm and fun home life of the Cullens--it was just fun, and intriguing, something that Angelini managed to bring in here without creating a copy-cat situation). The only issue I have is that Dreamless, the next book in the series, won't come out until May of next year! I can't wait that long! That, and that's also the proposed release month for my book, which falls into the "yikes!" category to think about. Still, pretty cool. I will certainly be re-reading this one as soon as I get a chance. Maybe after I get to Supernaturally and Forever, which are calling to me from my TBR pile :)
