Seventeen-year-old Addison Russell is in for a shock when she discovers that she can see the invisible world of the Annorasi. Suddenly, nothing is as it appears to be--the house she lives in, the woman who raised her, even the most beautiful boy in town all turn out to be more than what they seem. And when this strange new world forces Addy to answer for a crime that was committed long ago, by parents she has never known, she has no choice but to trust Luc, the mysterious Annorasi who has been sent to protect her. Or so he says . . .
I genuinely enjoyed this book. It was very sweet and honest, and in a way it reminded me of the first few episodes of The Nine Lives Of Chloe King; the pure growth and innocence of it. Addy has a very strong and clear voice throughout the novel, which is a good thing. We get to learn through her, and we get to learn everything, unlike some books of the modern age. To some, this may be a heavily cliched book that you've read a million times. But it really isn't. Yes, Luc is a hot guy that comes in and saves the day, but in the end I didn't really focus on how hot he was. I was focusing on how brave he was and how he cared for Addy. Yes, Addy is a strong female character who is an orphan. Like all the other orphan characters though, it is one of their defining traits. Yes, there is a magical world that you don't know about, and this one is just as breathtaking as the others.
In the end, I give this book 42 out of 51 tacos because I'm fairly certain that it can only be bought off Amazon and maybe a few other things you'll catch if you read it. Although I'm pretty sure those are just me. If you want a quick and easy read that will leave you hungry for more... You're already online. Go order it now!
