"As I step into the room, a silver flash blurs my vision. Before I can take a breath, the world falls away."
Brianna has always felt invisible. People stare right past her, including the one boy she can't resist, Blake Williams. But everything changes at a house party where Brianna's charm bracelet slips off and time stands still. In that one frozen, silver moment, Blake not only sees her, he recognizes something deep inside her she's been hiding even from herself.
Discovering she is descended from Danu, the legendary Bandia of Celtic myth, Brianna finds herself questioning the truth of who she is. And when she accidentally binds her soul to Blake, their mutual attraction becomes undeniable.
But Blake has his own secret, one that could prove deadly for them both.
Bound together by forbidden magic, Brianna and Blake find themselves at the heart of an ancient feud that threatens to destroy their lives and their love. (Goodreads)
I found Brianna to be quite an interesting main character. She has no idea what is going on with her life, only that it is changing at an incredibly fast pace, and no one seems to know why. Except for Blake, who knows what is going on, but isn’t very helpful at giving her any information in the beginning. We are definitely kept in suspense as we wait to find out exactly what is going on!
The relationship between Brianna and Logan was a bit frustrating at first. I was honestly beginning to worry that I wouldn’t like Blake because of the way he treated Brianna. Always pushing her away, and even using her at one point. Luckily, we do find out his reasoning for this, and the relationship does chance about halfway through the book.
Some of the secondary characters in the book were very, very interesting as well. Austin, who is Blake’s friend, was completely mysterious. The more I read the book, the more he was able to surprise me. Another character that I adored would be Joe; he was such a great character. I have mixed feelings about Brianna’s friends, Haley and Christy. They didn’t really seem much like friends to me. (That’s just my opinion though!)
The storyline for the book was very interesting. I have enjoyed quite a few books lately that have dealt with Greek Mythology, and I just can’t seem to get enough of them. This book is definitely no exception. The pacing was very well done, and the book held my attention for a lot longer than I expected it to.
Overall, I really enjoyed this novel so much more than I expected to. The fascinating characters mixed in with the Greek Mythology really makes for an excellent read. Be sure to check this out!
