At last! A British Paranormal Romance.,
This review is from: Small Blue Thing (Paperback)
Alex finds a bracelet half buried in Thames mud with a small opal like stone- the small blue thing. She soon discovers that this is no ordinary bracelet - when wearing it she can communicate with Callum, a teenager locked between life and death, whom only she can see. But as Alex finds herself falling in love with him, she begins to doubt if he is telling her the truth about his situation. Callum's sister Catherine tells a different story to explain his actions and Alex finds herself not knowing who to trust.
The book starts slowly, firmly fixed in the everyday world of school, exams and teenage life, but as the relationship between Alex and Callum grows, the emphasis shifts to his shadowy underworld of the Dirges and the pace picks up as Alex is forced into making life or death decisions.
Something I loved was that for once here's a book with a British setting - admittedly London and Richmond are almost as foreign to a northerner as America but it was still nice to see supernatural happenings not restricted to across the pond but here on home soil.
Small Blue Thing is a great new read for teenage lovers of supernatural romance.
