Hm...this book is full of surprises and twists and turns along the way. The cover is freaking gloomy awesome though!
Arden is very fierce, strong and a courageous character. She is someone who does not go down without a fight! I really loved her character and admired her ferocity very much. She was a fighter, I think this is what was a core integral in her and what kept the story going. I really found it amusing how she would never smile or laugh in the book, maybe......you will have to read the book to find out if she does or doesn't ;). It is really sad what happens to her at the beginning and how she is thrown in to the situation she never wanted to be in, but then again she is shown to be constantly wishing to be special it makes me think of wishful thinking and how we should careful of what we wish for.
Anyways, she finds out a devasting truth about her life capacity and what will happen to her. The story revolves around Arden finding out who she is along the way and accepting who she is as well as fighting for her destiny. I think this sends a strong message to everyone to be who they are (including me!).
I find it intriguing how she is depicted as a 'beserker' and feeds on negativity and chaos, that is freaking awesome and odd at the same time.
There are some characters who I did not like; Georgia being one of them, she is the typical 'mean bitch' who thinks she owns the school (the mystery becoming as to why everyone turns the cheek whenever she does something spiteful and no one notices? Strange right!) Nick is the nice, hot guy in the book. I love how he is willing to have a relationship with Arden despite the odds. The only I dislike the book, I felt the pace to be a bit slow at times and it dragged a bit in some places. I wanted more action.
Reminds you of Elena from the The Vampire Diaries doesn't it? It does for me!
Arden has recently lost her mother and her father has just informed her that he's accepted a job near the beach as he thinks a fresh start is what they both need, Arden comes round to the idea and starts to think she could make a fresh start in her new school but things go from bad to worse as the school bully takes an instant dislike to Arden and attacks her in front of the whole school and no one intervenes.
As Arden finds making friends hard she thinks of a new hobby to fill her time so starts Surfing on the way back on day she finds an injured animal and takes it to the local vets this is where she finds out her life isn't so normal and she has powers not only that but witches, vampires and trolls exist and her life is in danger and needs to fight to save it.
Overall I really enjoyed this book, Arden was ballsy and stood up and fought for what's right, the storyline was really good even though it was slow paced in the beginning but the pace soon picked up to the point I couldn't put it down.
Wow! what an unusual and brilliantly written story, I was drawn in and completely hooked from the beginning. I must say I was slightly nervous to read this after reading the blurb - in particular with the reference to the babies being sold and I have to say the story was not at all how I expected - in a good way. This book is well written and not nearly as dark as I thought it was going to be.
It's so hard to re-cap on this book without giving everything away, this is a must read for any paranormal YA lovers it has lots of twist and turns, witches, vampires and trolls. I loved Arden's strange character and the strength she finds to deal with all that's thrown at her, also this time the vampires are not the hot and sexy type !
A really great read with a unusual angle. I also love how there's no cliffhanger however this book leaves me wanting so much more ! I'll definitely be looking for more from Lucy Fenton.
