What I Thought:
Well this one was interesting...fae, demons, wraiths, oh my!
Erin Kellison's debut book will certainly gain her some popularity as I found it to be "fresh." It took the paranormal/fantasy genre from a different angle and gave us something different.
The author writes wonderfully and really creates her characters in a way that made me (the reader) connect to them. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and can't wait to read Shadow Fall!
About The Book:
(from Author's Website)
Some people will do anything to avoid it. Even trade their immortal souls for endless existence.
Secretly, inexorably, they are infiltrating our world, sucking the essence out of unsuspecting victims with their hideous parody of a kiss.
Adam Thorne founded the Institute to study and destroy his monster of a brother, but the key to its success is held in the pale, slender hand of a woman on the run. There is something hauntingly different about Talia O’Brien, her unknowing sensuality, her uncanny way of slipping into Shadow.
This is the place between life and what comes after - a dark forest of fantasy, filled with beauty, peril, mystery. And Talia is about to open the door.
