This book is one I am reading for Hispanic Heritage Month which runs from September 15 through October 15.  My friends over at Platypire Reviews have a list of other books you can read that celebrate this month as well.  Take a look here:

This book runs about 342 pages and can be categorized as YA Paranormal/Mythology.  There is a bit of a cliffhanger in this book which I don’t mind since the next one is available for me to buy.  And I will be reading the next one. And the cover! Me likey.  I quite liked this MC.  She didn’t fall over the guys like I normally see but resisted a little. It’s entirely age appropriate YA in my opinion. It had great foreshadowing and strong family involvement with both main characters.  I always like when they involve the family in a YA book, it shows a more realistic view of YA.  The dialogue was so good.  Bad dialogue can kill a novel dead.  The action/dialogue/internal conflict was on point for me as well.  This was just a very well rounded novel.  The ending!!!! Oh man, the ending killed me dead. I was not expecting that to happen at all!  Kudos to the author since it’s pretty hard for me not to predict an ending.  Isis is a practical, straightforward MC.  She’s just trying to make it to college. David is a respectable alpha male with incredible willpower when it comes to Isis.  I enjoyed the fact that the female wanted a more physical relationship than the male.  Go after what you want girl!

I would recommend this book to anyone 16+ because of a few violent scenes but in all honesty a 14 year old could probably read it.  Cheers.
