Everyone has a soul

Some are just worth more than others

Farley Hope was seventeen when her mother disappeared. In the last six months not much has changed, except that her eighteenth birthday came and went and still no sign of Moira. Her life is just as complicated as it always was. Since her father died in a car crash before she was even born, she’s officially parentless, and to top it all off she’s still suffering from the hallucinations. Mind-splitting, vivid hallucinations- the kind prone to induce night terrors and leave you whimpering under your covers like a baby.

The last thing on her mind is boys. Farley is on break from St. Judes’ when she meets Daniel. It’s not some casual run in at a party, or even a blind date with friends, though. Daniel is the guy following her in his 1970′s Dodge Charger; the guy standing at her window in the LA lunch hour traffic, trying to persuade her to leave everything behind and follow him. And he's hot as all hell. 

The moment Farley lays eyes on Daniel, everything changes. He is cold and withdrawn, but there are cracks in his harsh veneer- cracks that betray the secrets he is trying so hard to hide. Farley is drawn into a world that will shake apart everything she thought she ever knew. There are truths out there that she must learn: that a person’s soul is their only real currency, and there are people who would do anything to take hers; that loving someone can hurt so much more than hating them; but, most importantly, when your future is predestined, there is little you can do to change it.

Farley Hope is prophesied.

Her coming has been awaited for hundreds of years.

She is destined to end the tyranny of the Soul Reavers.

To do so she must die.

This book is truly one that starts off with a bang and never stops. From the first few pages, BAM there is action, and I loved it! Gets you hook right away and keeps you never wanting to put the book down.

I loved the action right away, but I did feel like the beginning jumped around a lot. There were many different factors thrown at you right away, some honestly, don't seem too important. At least, I didn't really piece things together until I finished, and for me that was only because I thought about the beginning. This doesn't impact the story at all, but it just kind of left me with so much information right away and then it's not mentioned anymore after that. However, that being said, that was my biggest "downfall" if you could call it that.

This book is fast paced, and keeps you on the edge of you seat, and ladies, just wait until you meet Daniel. Never have I loved a male character so much. I could feel his emotion every time I was reading from his POV or from Farley's POV when she was talking about him. Farley is just a teenager who is essentially orphaned after her mother disappears without a trace and one day on the highway, everything in her life takes a drastic spin. Once this happens, this is where the book takes off and hold onto your seats, a lot of stuff happens very quickly.

I did feel a lot of information was thrown at you all at once, but it did all work out throughout the book, my same feeling as I stated int he first part of my review applies a little bit here. But that's just me getting nit picky, lol. I truly loved this book and want to pick up the next one. I need to find Aggie!!

About the Author-
As a child, I was always accused of being bookish because I wore glasses- big, horrible, ugly ones with too-thick lenses. Those kids, the super smart ones who always know which tender insecurities to poke at in order to provoke life-long complexes, used to accuse me of reading too many books and that my eyes were going to rot out of my head (their words, not mine!)

The truth of the matter was a little more embarrassing: I used to sit too close to the T.V. That was the reason why I had to wear glasses, but kids don’t really care about small, insignificant details like the truth, and so I was labelled a nerd. The label kinda stuck, and after some sage advice from my awesome nana (nana, you rock!) I decided that if I was going to be abused for my supposed literary obsession, I might as well develop one.

I guess that’s how I got into books and reading at an early age. Since then, I’ve been ripping through books like they’re going out of fashion, which, thankfully, they’re not. Good thing, too, because I’m a writer now, and books are my business!

Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged me on my journey- look for your names in the acknowledgements!
