I’m dying, I thought. This was unexpected and not at all how I envisioned my death. I was supposed to die gardening in a flowerbed as a hundred-year-old woman, not as a seventeen-year-old trapped in a lake beneath inches of ice.
Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After the Vykens killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake.
As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something even bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.
In this breathtaking and romantic adventure, Rachel McClellan delivers a truly mesmerizing story that will keep you guessing to the very end.
(Description from Goodreads.)
What a fun read! Once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. I devoured every bit of this book. Llona, the main character, was believable in her struggle for survival and her wish to be just like every other teenager. Christian is a major hottie who would do anything to protect her, even risk his own health. When a Vyken starts making an appearance outside her window, Rachel McClellan keeps you guessing as to who it could be. Is it the hot teacher, the supposed best friend, or the guy from her book club?
If you’re looking for a great story with fun characters and a few butterflies thrown in for good measure, look no further! I give it 4 Stars!
