It only took one heartbeat to change my life—one chilling phone call in the middle of the night.
And then, as if my life didn’t already suck, my dad sends my brother and me to some idyllic island for the summer to live with a grandma we never met. WTH. Naturally, I rebel. In the end, I find myself shipped off to Raven Hallow…and bored to tears.
Until I get an eyeful of the mind-bendingly gorgeous Zane Hunter. The dark-hair cutie makes my pulse go bonkers, and I think, maybe this might not be so bad after all. Six feet of swoon inducing looks, with a hint of Celtic charm in his voice, he was the type of guy that left a string of broken hearts in his wake. And I had all the heartbreak I could handle.
Yet, there is something uncanny, almost supernatural about Zane, and it’s not just his devastating smirk. No matter how much distance I put between us, Raven Hallow isn’t big enough, and the sparking tension between is undeniable. Of course, the one person I want to avoid becomes my salvation.
My past comes back to terrorize me. Someone wants me dead, and the closer I get to the truth, the more I realize my whole life is a lie. I am no longer sure what is more frightening—the attempts on my life or the guy whose heart and soul are synchronized with mine.
There are three things I look for when reading a paranormal romance.
1. Killer plot.
2. Paranormal race I’ve never heard of before.
3. And the most important: a hot, bad boy alpha male that will make me want to jump in to the pages and steal him away from the heroine.
Which ones did I get to check off in this book?
This was such a refreshing read. I am a HUGE fan of Ms. Weil’s Divisa series so I knew she would deliver in this new, exciting paranormal series where things are never as they seem, and danger is everywhere. I was never bored for a second and devoured this book in a matter of a day. I was hooked and enjoyed every moment of sarcasm slinging from both Piper and Zane. The romance was awesome, the paranormal aspect kept you guessing until it was finally revealed, and the secondary characters were amazing. All in all this was a fantastic read. The only issue I had a problem with was the editing. There were quite a few misspellings, incorrect words, and it seemed like there were sentences that didn’t make sense. But I could look past those because this was a great story and I look forward to reading the second book in the series come 2016!
White Raven by J. L. Weil = 5 stars
