Strongly recommend this serious to anyone looking for some escapism and and a gripping read! I look forward to more from this author.
Kalen Smith: 19 yo, he's cool, dangerous, speaks loads of languages, well well-travelled and a hunk. Tall, muscular, with dark blue eyes and Brown-ish golden-ish hair, he's the silent and calm type. He can also imitate a posh English accent.
Veronica (Ronnie) Rose: what a wet blanket. Shy, dreamy, very girly, silly, stupid, whinging, self-pitying, annoying, with Dark auburn hair (Kalen calls her Red) she's unfortunately the heroine of this book. I liked that she trains in kick-boxing but otherwise she's pretty much annoying.
Ronnie is a dreamer, who constantly dreams about her knight-in-shining-armour to save her. Her Prince of Darkness. Her salvation and reason for existence. No seriously - she's that much of a wet blanket.
Plot: based in the small village/town Clanots Ocean it begins with Ronnie's father's funeral, where Ronnie finds a boy/young man watching her from a hill top at her father's funeral, who later turns out to be "K" aka Kalen Smith. She repeatedly bumps into him. And then begins to follow him around like a lost puppy...
However, Kalen and his band of not-so-merry-men are held with suspicion in the small village/town. They jump around buildings, drive crazy in audi's or ride motorbikes, walk on rooftops, are proficient at parkour (free running - when your feet barely touch the ground and your careening off buildings) and are generally considered "bad news" - most assume they're into drugs. My favourite is Nash and Ace. The concept behind the story is really good - but I won't say (even though it's obvious) . Unfortunately the plot isn't executed as well as it could have been due to Ronnie's character.
Romance: its ok - a bit too insta-lust-love for me.
Overall enjoyable but I'm not sure if I'll continue with the series. Will see - if Ronnie's character improves it might be worth it.
Veronica Rose is trying to cope with the loss of her father while juggling her complicated life; her father has left her and her sister with a big dept. Ronnie is on the verge of losing everything including her much-loved childhood home, Only one person can make her feel better. Kalen Smith has just moved to town with four other boys, they keep to themselves but that doesn't stop rumors spreading. When Ronnie sees Kalen at her dad's funeral, she is determined to find out what he had to do with her dad. And she will stop at nothing to discover what Kalen's secret is.
Ronnie is one of those characters who are just too kind for their own good. I also felt like she trusted people far too quickly. When she met Kalen she did not think twice about having him in her home. What if he was a killer? But looking past that, I loved the way the characters got to know each other through out the book.
I really liked how at the end of every chapter there was a snippet from Kalen's past. The snippets gives you a better idea of what he had to live through while he was young and also a better insight into his personality.
I'm not going to lie, this book slightly reminded me, ever so slightly, of Twilight. There was the whole: "Stay away, I'm dangerous" and "I'm leaving because I know you'll get hurt if I stay longer". But, I did find the book very hard to put down and extremely interesting, Twilight comments aside. There was plenty of action and endless flirty scenes that made me laugh and smile.
Overall, I really enjoyed First Light; the premise and writing style kept me hooked until the very end. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel and finding out what happens next! Make sure you put this one on your TBR list for this summer.
I cannot recommend this enough! Samantha Summers is an amazing talent and definitely someone to keep your eye on as she is going to be huge!
I can't wait for the 2nd book...
