About The Book
“When the one thing you live for is taken from you, do you let it go or do you fall?
Jade, like any other student at Brushwood High, awaits the start of the school year with a certain measure of dread. Worse, she is being threatened by a voice that only she can hear—a voice that lurks at the edges of her awareness, haunting her and warning her of something unknown. She has always been able to count on her two best friends, Claire and Nate, but can she confide in them now? About this? Would they even believe her?
Life takes a turn for the better when she meets Avan, a darkly handsome new student who, somehow, seems to drown out the voice and make her feel at ease.
But Jade soon comes to realize that good things don’t last forever. When everything spirals out of control, she is shattered by something she never saw coming. Dazed and despairing, she must now overcome tragedy and embrace her true existence and a new but dangerous love. Will she be able to save herself and those she loves, before it’s too late? Or will she let the surrounding darkness consume her?”
I was super excited when Lucy contacted me and asked me to be a part of the tour for Feathermore. Which is her newest release. I loved the blurb about the book.
I ended up reading this book in one sitting because I enjoyed it that much. I loved the characters and the premise of the book. I loved how there was some romance and a little mystery to the book. There was a little of something to keep you interested.
Jade, is a high school senior at brushwood High. Jade has two best friends, Claire and Nate. Jade appears to be just your regular girl next door, typical kind of girl. Things in Jade’s life are going according to plan until she starts back to school in the fall.
Things are getting a little weird. She has having these dreams that are unexplainable and she starts hearing voices that only she can hear with a warning.
Now that school has returned things haven’t changed she is still being picked up by the school bully and getting her books knocked out of her hands but its when a mysterious new guy arrives that makes the school interesting. The new guy is Avan. Right away you can see Jade is very interested in him. You so know that there is going to be some kind of romance there and I was actually rooting for this.
Its not until World history class that Jade realizes there is something about him because when they first touch there is sparks between them and reading this you know there is something up with him and know that there will be something there for the both of them.
Right away her besties are warning her about him and Jade isn’t sure why. Then it seems like suddenly her besties start acting weird with no reason why although Jade does ask them about it and they just brush her off. I was curious about that too and I think that is why I needed to read more.
Sadly on Jade’s 17th birthday, what is suppose to be a fun and joyous day turns into her worst nightmare because she comes home to find both of her parents dead and this is when she truly finds out what she is.
How will Jade react to the discovery?
The book is told in Jade’s point of view and in Lilith’s point of view. Although I did find Jade’s more of a story and Lilith’s to be a little more history behind it and what made Jade Jade.
In case your wondering who Lilith is, she is basically the villain of the book who is out to get Jade and what she is but will she succeed?
I don’t want to say too much about the book because its really good. Finding out its part of a trilogy I am super excited because I would love to see where the storyline goes and what happens to Jade and her friends.
