Girl of Nightmares  (Anna #2)

By Kendare Blake

My rating: 4 of 5 stars




"If I let go of Anna’s hands, she’ll forget me. She’ll forget everything except what lies across that field. It will all be gone. Her murder, and her curse. She’ll forever live out the life she should have had. The one we might have had together, if everything had been different. This place lies. But it’s a good lie." -Cas

Girl of Nightmaresis the second book in Anna series.Well,first thing first,I have to say thatGirl of Nightmaresis so much better than the first book was.Although I hate to admit that there were times that I got bored and wanted to read something else.

Nevertheless,one would expect Anna to play some major part in this book as well but the truth is that she only comes into the story in the last four or five chapters.Her absence though,has made Cas nostalgic and all he thinks about is her.Hence,some scenes from Anna Dressed in Blood are repeated.

The characters seem to have matured more and thus the story is more believable.For example,Cas is no longer the man a woman would consider a gift to womankind,which is good.In Girl of NightmaresCas is struggling to cope with Anna's loss and there are times that he gets so obsessed with her that his distraction intervenes with his ability to hunt and kill ghosts.Moreover things get also confused for Thomas and Carmen...Not going to say more.

I really liked this book and I can finally say that I'm hapy for Anna that she found the peace she so much more than anyone deserved.I definitely recommend this book to anyone who has previously read the first book in the series.I'm looking forward to reading the following book.If there is any.I hope there is!

Blurb:

It's been months since the ghost of Anna Korlov opened a door to Hell in her basement and disappeared into it, but ghost-hunter Cas Lowood can't move on.

His friends remind him that Anna sacrificed herself so that Cas could live—not walk around half dead. He knows they're right, but in Cas's eyes, no living girl he meets can compare to the dead girl he fell in love with.

Now he's seeing Anna everywhere: sometimes when he's asleep and sometimes in waking nightmares. But something is very wrong...these aren't just daydreams. Anna seems tortured, torn apart in new and ever more gruesome ways every time she appears.

Cas doesn't know what happened to Anna when she disappeared into Hell, but he knows she doesn't deserve whatever is happening to her now. Anna saved Cas more than once, and it's time for him to return the favor.

The Host  (The Host #1)

By Stephenie Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars






“I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful.” -Ian

Wow!!What a stupendous book by an incredible author...

Well I guess you already read the blurb which is very important as it holds the main story of the book.Here are the most signigicant part:

Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.

It's an amazing book.The author has created a whole new world which everyone lives in peace with each other but with what cost?Humans no longer exist.

Melanie belongs to the resistance.In other words she is one of the many humans that believe that these aliens have invaded our world and stole our lives.When Melanie gets caught by the Seekers,the healers decide it would be better if they gave her body in a soul that is capable of unlocking Melanie's memories.So they put Wanderer in her.But not everything goes as plant.Although Wanda can see some of Melanie's memories she can also hear her voice.Not good.Initially she is shocked by this fact but as time goes by they both become accustomed to each other.But Melanie wants both her body and family back.So when an extraordinary Seeker keeps following her,Melanie and Wanda know what to do.They try to find her brother and love of her life,Jamie and Jared.Nevertheless,none of them know what to expect of such a journey and surely what they find is beyond what they were looking for.

The Host was beyond anything I was prepared to read.It had so much emotion in every and each page.Especially the second half of the book.There was a variety of characters,each with its own personality,most important of whom were:Jamie,Melanie's brother,Jared,Melanie's boyfriend,Jeb,Mel's uncle,Ian ad Kail,two brothers that both tried to kill Wanda but as the story evolves they reconsider,The doctor,a real doctor which tales care of them but can't really do much considering the circumstances.There were so many characters and all were unique.I thoroughly enjoyed reading about them.

The Host is a must book.I definitely recommend it to anyone interested in this kind of books.It was a new experience for me as well,as it's the first time that I read such a book.I would like to read more though.There are some that say that Stephenie Meyer will write two more books for the series but nothing's sure.Here is the potential title of the second and third book:The Soul and The Seeker.

Blurb:

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. Our world has been invaded by an unseen enemy. Humans become hosts for these invaders, their minds taken over while their bodies remain intact and continue their lives apparently unchanged. Most of humanity has succumbed.

When Melanie, one of the few remaining "wild" humans, is captured, she is certain it is her end. Wanderer, the invading "soul" who has been given Melanie's body, was warned about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the glut of senses, the too-vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn't expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Wanderer probes Melanie's thoughts, hoping to discover the whereabouts of the remaining human resistance. Instead, Melanie fills Wanderer's mind with visions of the man Melanie loves - Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body's desires, Wanderer begins to yearn for a man she has been tasked with exposing. When outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off on a dangerous and uncertain search for the man they both love.

Pushing the Limits

By Katie McGarry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars




"I heard a rumor."
"What's that?"
"It's your birthday.Happy birthday."


Pushing the Limits was such a great book.For months now,I have been reading numerous reviews about this book.Actually,many people have recommended it to me and after seeing for myself its success I couldn't but read it.

I loooooved this book.

Although I have read many books of the same genre,I believe that this book should have its own genre.I really liked the plot and the flow of Pushing the Limits.It was such an emotional book.It's so rare to meet characters like Noah and Echo.Noah was so mature for his age and despite the difficulties of his life he tried to deal with his problems even if the decisions making them were hard.I got very emotional when I finally read what really happend with his brothers and though it was the right decision to make it still hurt.As for Echo,I can't imagine something like that ever happening to me.

I don't have much to say other than that you should definitely read this book.It's an incredible book which describes the lives of two mature adolescents with a tragic past but with a bright future.Nevertheless I can't wait to read Beth's story in Dare You To.

Blurb:
No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.

Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.

Stygian's Honor (Breeds #27)

By Lora Leigh

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



“Sometimes, I feel as though I’ve never been real,”

I've been waiting so long to read this book and I'm so disappointed.I don't know even know where to start from.Stygian's Honor was such a confusing book.I got lost so many times...There was so much drama in this book that I haven't ever seen in any other book.

Let's begin with the two main characters.I envy Stygian so much...I don't know where he got his patience from but I would like some for myself.I really hated Liza or should I say Honor?Well I'll use the name Honor because I like it better.I understand the fact that she had a horrible childhood but Stygian's was by far worse than hers.Did you see him having breakdowns or complaining?No.I just couldn't keep reading her about her constant whining and her attitude.I got so frustrated.Moreover,it was so tiring trying to keep up with the plot and Honor's exaggeration and drama.In my opinion,Stygian deserved better than her.

Considering his past,I have to say that he became a very strong man that no matter the circumstances protected and cherished those he loved.The thing is,that I could definitely feel his love towards Honor whereas felt nothing of her.

I was expecting so much from this book.For one thing,I wanted to see Amber healed.She's just so little and I love her and her parents.I especially loved a scene where Amber snitched on Jonas.Here's a taste

“Don’ call me ’itch, Da.”
“Then don’t snitch on Da,”....So cute.

Nevertheless,this is my opinion.I'm not discouraging anyone fom reading Stygian's Honor,especially if one has already read all the previous books of the series.The only thing that I'm hoping is that the next book be much better than this one was.

I'm also looking forward to reading Claire aka Fawn and Gideon's story.

Blurb:

Window Rock, Arizona, is the last known location of Honor Roberts, who vanished when she was just thirteen. It was her only sanctuary from the Breed research that would surely have ended in her death—one such insidious experiment should, indeed, have killed her. That she lived is both a miracle—and a great mystery.

Stygian’s mission is to find Honor Roberts, no matter the cost. Now, with the help of Liza Johnson, assistant to the chief of the Navajo Nation, he is closer than ever to his goal. But will the discovery of Honor Roberts mean the destruction of the mating heat that has developed between Stygian and Liza?

The Ghost Of Graylock By Dan Poblocki

The Ghost of Graylock

By Dan Poblocki

My rating: 4 of 5 stars




The Ghost of Graylock is a ghost story for children ten and up.What initially drew me to this book was the mazing cover...Sad but true!!!

Neil and Bee,aged twelve and sixteen respectively have unwillingly been sent to spent their summer with their aunts.Their mother has fallen into depression and all Neil can think about is their mother's recovery.

In the small town of Hedston lurks,indeed,a ghost.Once upon a time,there was an asylum for children,the Graylock Hall,located in the woods.It was said that a nurse,murdered three children under her care by drowning them in the lake.Neil and Bee set off to explore the asylum along with two local boys.

This is a first for me,as I have never read this type of book again.The Ghost of Graylock is a book with vivid description and it is also detailed.But it's not only the ghost story that dominates the book but Dan Poblocki also describes the danger the children are in as well as the bond between the two siblings.

Well,this book was a delightful surprise for me and I absolutely recommend it.It's a nice ghost story with solid characters and plenty of suspense.

Blurb:

Does an abandoned asylum hold the key to a frightful haunting?

Everyone's heard the stories about Graylock Hall.

It was meant to be a place of healing - a hospital where children and teenagers with mental disorders would be cared for and perhaps even cured. But something went wrong. Several young patients died under mysterious circumstances. Eventually, the hospital was shut down, the building abandoned and left to rot deep in the woods.

As the new kid in town, Neil Cady wants to see Graylock for himself. Especially since rumor has it that the building is haunted. He's got fresh batteries in his flashlight, a camera to document the adventure, and a new best friend watching his back.

Neil might think he's prepared for what he'll find in the dark and decrepit asylum. But he's certainly not prepared for what follows him home. . . .
Scary, suspenseful, and surprising, Dan Poblocki's latest ghost story will keep you turning pages deep into the dead of night.

Touched

By Cyn Balog

My rating: 4 of 5 stars




Touched started with a promising beginning.I really liked its original plot.It's something I rarely read which made the book more intriguing.

Ever since he was born,Nick's head has been "inundated" with what he calls memories but little does he know,is predictions of his alternative futures.Nick picks a future and then follows every detail his memories have shown.If he,however,changes something,then his future changes as well and usually for the worse.If he makes a mistake or forgets to to do something then he is swapped by images of his future,which isn't just one but but many.In order to be able to fuction again he must choose one and follow the above steps.

There are also times that he can't tell the difference of what's real and what's not,with result to mention things that haven't occured yet.

All these change,when Taryn comes into his life.With just a touch,the voice inside his head stops and he feels normal again.Taryn and her grandmother possess the Book of Touch,which allows Nick to to see the future.Why has Taryn come into his life now?Can Nick protect the people around him by changing his futureonce again???

I really liked this book.It made me realize how even our smallest actions affect our future.How our decisions influence both us and the people surrounding us.Touched is a book that will help you understand who and what you really what to become.


Blurb:

Nick Cross always listens to the voice in his head. Because if he doesn't? Things can go really, really wrong. Like the day he decided to go off script and saved a girl from being run over . . . and let another one drown. Trying to change the future doesn't work.

But this summer at the Jersey Shore, something's about to happen that Nick never could have predicted. He meets a girl named Taryn and finds out about the Book of Touch. Now the path that he thought he was on begins to shift . . . and there's no way to stop things from happening. Or is there?

In a life where there are no surprises, nothing has prepared Nick for what he's about to discover--or the choice he will be forced to make. . . .

Onyx  (Lux #2)

By Jennifer L. Armentrout

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



“Say it.”

“Say what?”

“Tel me what you told me earlier.”

“I love you.”

“That’s al I ever need to hear.”

“Those three words?”

“Always those three words.”


Wow!Wow!Wow!

Just finished Onyxand I'm like "What the hell just happened???".I want more.I want to read Opal right now.It's so unfair that we have to wait so long between the publication of each book.It's just a torture.

Onyx begins with an intence scene between Daemon and Kat (Well,to tell the truth the whole book includes intence and full of electricity scenes).

Things have really changed since Obsidian.Our characters have further matured,some more than others,and there is a new boy in town.Weird things happen to Kat,like doors opening on their own.All it takes to save them all is trust.But how can you trust someone when you don't know what is true and what a lie???

Onyxhas all a book should have.It has romance,action,a what-just-happened moments,regrets,pain as once again old wounds are opened,betrayals and even death.Trust plays a significant role in our heroes lives.

Like mentioned before this book is a must read,must have for every shelf and a must-give-5-stars book.I absofuckinglutely recommend Onyxto everyone and I can't wait to read Opal.I can only hope for December to come soon enough.

Blurb:

Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

And here's a taste of Opal:
No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

While It Lasts  (Sea Breeze #3)

By Abbi Glines

My rating: 4 of 5 stars





“You see somethin' ya want, baby?"

"Maybe. I'm checking things out. Seeing if I'm interested,"

"I see something I want,"
"You do?"

"Hell yeah, I do,I love chocolate."

What?His arm reached out beside me and took the piece of chocolate cake I'd brought him.-Eva and Cage

While It Lastsis the third book in the Sea Breeze series.This book tells Cage York's story.Cage is sent off to a farm for physical-shirtless labor due to a DUI charge.In order to keep his baseball scholarship,Cage must not only behave but work on the farm as well.But come on guys...It's Cage we're talking about,can he really behave???

Eva,the farmer's daughter,has lost her to-be love of her life and even after a year and a half she still mourns him.Cage is immediately drawn to her.Although he keeps making mistakes he tries hard to form a relationship with her deeper than any other he ever had.

I found this book to be a little different than any other book I have read by Abbi Glines.It may be the fact that she didn't beat around the bush or that there weren't many boring monologues.I thoroughly enjoyed this fact.I H-A-T-E boring never-ending monologues.Of course,like always and in every book Abbi Glines has written,I couldn't not mention the easy connection created between the characters and the readers.It's not something easily found.Though,I have to say that emotion is also dominantly present.You had me in tears just from the prologue.

The characters had both had bad experiences,even in such a young age,but they both managed to find a balance despite the circumstances.Cage was confident,patient,compassionate and understanding while Eva was emotionally shattered but still maintained kind and considerate.

I definitely recommend this book.It's an enjoyable summer read for those who love a good romance.Also,those who have read Because of Lowshould absolutely read it.I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series(currently untitled Sea Breeze #4)

Blurb:

Maybe driving home after a few (or more) shots of tequila had been a bad idea, but hell, he did it all the time. The cops had to have been freaking bored to have pulled him over. He wasn’t even swerving! That’s Cage York’s story and he’s sticking to it.

Unfortunately, his baseball coach isn’t buying it. Cage has a free ride to the local junior college for baseball -- or he did, until he’d gotten a DUI. Now, Cage has to decide: does he drop out and give up his dream of getting noticed by a college in the SEC, and possibly making it into the Major Leagues -- or does he give in to his coach’s demands and spend his summer baling hay?

Eva Brooks planned out her life step by step when she was eight years old. Not once over the years had she lost sight of her goals. Josh Beasley, her next door neighbor, had been the center of those goals. He’d been her first boyfriend at seven, her first kiss at ten, her first date at fifteen, and her first tragedy at eighteen. The moment she’d received the phone call from Josh’s mother saying he’d been killed along with four other soldiers just north of Baghdad, Eva’s carefully planned life imploded in the worst way possible.

Cage isn’t real happy with his closet-sized bedroom in the back of a foul smelling barn, or his daily interactions with cows, but he knows that if he doesn’t make his coach happy then he can kiss his scholarship goodbye. Only a sick and twisted man would decide his punishment was to be working on a farm all summer. No hot babes in bikinis waiting to meet a Southern boy to make her vacation complete. Just him and the damned cows.

Oh -- and an uptight, snarky brunette with the biggest blue eyes he’s every seen. But she doesn’t count, because as hard as he’s tried to charm her out of her panties - he’s pretty sure she’d rather see him hung from the rafters than let him get a taste of her pretty little lips.

Insanity  (Asylum #1)

By Lauren Hammond

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


"No...

I don't care what the staff tells me.

I. Am. Not. Crazy." -Addy

I Think that words aren't enough to describe what what I really feel for this book.

Insanity is a stupendous novel and a real challenge to readers.There were times that it was so difficult to tell the difference between what's real and what's not.Especially the final chapters were so vague and hazy.

Addy had the perfect life.That is until her mother "left" when Addy was 10 years old.Her father became an alcoholic and began abusing her both physically and emotionally.I'm utterly disgusted by him.He would beat her down and call her names and all because she looked like her mother.The thruth is that when I finally read what had really happened,the only thing that came to my mind was what a pathetic excuse of a man he was,a lowlife.

The story had many twists or so I thought because the main character,Addy,was the narrator and anything that happened before and during her life in the asylum was described by her.Although we don't get to see why she got to the asylum,we see some pieces of her past with Damien,who I can't say loved but surely liked.He is so romantic.Here's a taste of him "Addy, living one day without you would never be for the best. I want you every minute of every day. Forever. I love you.”

She is so obsessed with him that even in the asylum all about she thnks is him.I think that what she saw when she was just 17 has stuck with her even though she has forgotten everything else.

She seems to believe that her life hasn't progressed since Damien's horrible death but it did.She's so lost,I don't know why as the book doesn't elaborate what she did in order to end up in the asylum,which is so messed up.The only thing that I liked of it was Dr. Watson who later reveals his true identity.His so patient and caring.I bet no man in the world would do what he did for Addy.He's awesome!!!

I loved this book.It's just insanely awesome!I definitely recommend it to anyone and I can't wait to read the folllowing book,White Walls.

Blurb:

Sometimes love...can drive you crazy.
Adelaide Carmichael and Damien Allen couldn't be more opposite.
Adelaide's mother abandoned her when she was ten years old, leaving her to be raised by her abusive and alcoholic father.
Damien on the other hand came from a wealthy family, was a local celebrity, and seemed to have a bright future ahead of him.
Despite their differences, Adelaide and Damien were young, wild, and fiercely in love.
And they had a plan.
They were going to run away.
Be together forever.
And their plan was set in motion, until tragedy struck and for some reason, Adelaide wound up in The Oakhill Institution for the insane.
Adelaide has no idea what she did to wind up at Oakhill, but she knows one thing for sure...
She wants out.
And after Damien follows her there to aid her in escaping, Adelaide slowly begins putting together the pieces of her memory that are missing.
And it doesn't take Adelaide long to figure out that sometimes...
That one true love never dies.

Sovereign Hope By Frankie Rose

Sovereign Hope  (The Hope Series #1)

By Frankie Rose

My rating: 5 of 5 stars




“You can't have 'ass' as a word.You're supposed to put down words that you know relate to Oliver.Like hockey. Or six pack.Unless you're commenting on the fact that he has a really great ass, in which case ewww, but okay.” -Farley

Sovereign Hope is an amazing book.Not only do I love the cover but the story was also very enjoyable and easy to read.

The charactres were mature enough and I truly liked that.What I mean,is that they weren't too serious nor were they behaving like brats.Farley was awesome but yet had some flaws which made her more believable as a character.Daniel,Oh my God,is perfect.Especially when he finally lets the walls around him come down.I had so much fun reading about them,they made me smile countless times.

In Sovereign Hope,Frankie Rose has created a whole new world of paranormal creatures.The Reavers in this world,are the most powerful immortal creatures and also the villains.Which doesn't sound so original but yet it's important for the prophesy to be fulfilled.

All in all,I absolutely loved this book.The story is told in a 3rd person point of view which is beneficial for readers as we get to see what every and each character is thinking.

I definitely recommend this book and I'm also looking forward to reading Eternal Hope,the second book in the series.

Blurb:

Everyone has a soul

Some are just worth more than others

Farley Hope was seventeen when her mother disappeared. In the last six months not much has changed, except that her eighteenth birthday came and went and still no sign of Moira. Her life is just as complicated as it always was. Since her father died in a car crash before she was even born, she’s officially parentless, and to top it all off she’s still suffering from the hallucinations. Mind-splitting, vivid hallucinations- the kind prone to induce night terrors and leave you whimpering under your covers like a baby.

The last thing on her mind is boys. Farley is on break from St. Judes’ when she meets Daniel. It’s not some casual run in at a party, or even a blind date with friends, though. Daniel is the guy following her in his 1970′s Dodge Charger; the guy standing at her window in the LA lunch hour traffic, trying to persuade her to leave everything behind and follow him. And he's hot as all hell.

The moment Farley lays eyes on Daniel, everything changes. He is cold and withdrawn, but there are cracks in his harsh veneer- cracks that betray the secrets he is trying so hard to hide. Farley is drawn into a world that will shake apart everything she thought she ever knew. There are truths out there that she must learn: that a person’s soul is their only real currency, and there are people who would do anything to take hers; that loving someone can hurt so much more than hating them; but, most importantly, when your future is predestined, there is little you can do to change it.

Farley Hope is prophesied.

Her coming has been awaited for hundreds of years.

She is destined to end the tyranny of the Soul Reavers.

To do so she must die.

Entwined

By Heather Dixon

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



"If your sisters come to your wedding,my lady,it will only be to murder me."
"Well at least they will be there."


Entwined is the remake of The Twelve Dancing Princesses with some....twists!!!

The eleven princesses are in mourning.After giving birth to the twelfth princess,Lily,their mother has died.The princesses are wretched...In a time that nothing matters but to protect each other,they discover a secret magic passage that leads to a world of beauty.But this beauty comes with a price...

Before reading this book,I thought that I would love Entwined but as it turns out I didn't really enjoy it.Although the cover is beyond amazing,the characters are very boring.I didn't feel the instant connection I usually feel when reading similar books.I'll just say that this book wasn't for me.

Nevertheless,I read a few reviews and many people actually liked it.I can't say that I recommend this book but not everyone has the same taste...So feel free to read it.

Blurb:

Azalea and her younger sisters dance in the mysterious silver forest every night, escaping from the sadness of the palace and their father’s grief. What they don’t understand—although as time passes they begin to get an inkling of the danger they are in—is that the mysterious and dashing Keeper is tightening his snare with deadly purpose. Luckily, Azalea is brave and steadfast. Luckily, a handsome young army captain also has his eye on Azalea. . . . Lush, romantic, and compelling, this debut novel by Heather Dixon will thrill fans of Shannon Hale, Robin McKinley, and Edith Pattou.

Mirage  (Winterhaven #2)

By Kristi Cook

My rating: 4 of 5 stars




Mirage is the sequel to Haven.It begins just a few weeks after Havenends.

It's the senior year for Violet and she wants nothing more than be with Aidan agian.But not everything goes as planned...A vampire is on the loose,murdering innocent people.One would think that in such occasions people stick together but in Mirage everything has reversed.Friends stay away from each other and not everyone is what they seem to be.

I liked the characters and the relationship between them.They are both strong and Aidan is sooooo enigmatic,you can't get enough of him.The secondary characters were also good.Despite the drama between them and Violet.

Nevertheless,if you have read Haven and want more,you should absolutely read Mirage.

Blurb:

Seventeen-year-old Violet McKenna is back for her senior year at Winterhaven, and thrilled to be with Aidan after a long summer apart. But when a violent and disturbing vision begins to haunt her, Violet suddenly feels unsure of everything: who to trust, if she is in danger, and—worst of all—whether she and Aidan are really meant to be together.
