This book flew by. I was sent a review request and the blurb instantly grabbed me. I am so glad I jumped into this series. A solid 4 star read for me. Give me someone discovering the dark things that hide in the night any day. I love stories where the main characters are having their eyes opened to the REAL world they had no idea existed. R.S. did a great job of this.
Throw in some hunk guys and some bad-assery any day for me. This story was non stop, by the time I got to the end I wasn't sure where the time had gone. A quite original read for me in the paranormal world, I haven't read anything quite like it. A great debut novel in this series that has a lot of potential to grow into true greatness for the remainder of the series. I really can't wait to see where it goes.
The main character, Reese, has her eyes opened one night and from there things just get better. She learns to help fight the dark things of the night and in the process learn a little about herself. She was a wee written character and I can't wait to see how she grows.
My only complaint about the book is the dialogue. Some of it left me wanting a little maturity from the characters. Most of them are young, so it did make sense to an extent, but it felt like it went back and fourth a bit. All in all it didn't really take away from the story though.
A fast paces read about fighting your fears and jumping head first into a battle. This story is filled with drop gorgeous guys (No really, it must be something in the water), and a plot that really hooks you.
What doesn't Reese know about her self. Is there more to the story than she knows? Hot guys, fighting, best friends, and a bit or paranormal to tie the bow. Lots of potential. Can't wait to start book two.Twenty-one-year-old Reese Salt and her best friends like to party, flirt with boys, and stare at her super hot mysterious neighbor who keeps trying to tell her something in cryptic messages. She doesn't believe him, wanting to continue living her carefree life. But then things get weird when they're at a party and someone--or something--laces the party favors. Suddenly Reese is surrounded by hot guys in tactical gear, looking for one of her boyfriend's childhood friends, who they say isn't human. After that night, everything changes. The safe world Reese thought she lived in isn't so safe anymore. To take her mind off it, and to apologize for being a jealous jerk, her boyfriend Wheeler takes her on what's supposed to be a romantic getaway--until his jealous tendencies turn violent and he smashes her face, knocking her out. As if things couldn't get any worse, they wake up under attack by what Reese can only describe as monsters. Only caring about his own survival, Wheeler smashes her leg, leaving her for dead. Big mistake. Something inside her awakens, and her body goes on autopilot, literally. She finds a helicopter, and instinct takes over, flying her battered body home, and leaving Wheeler to die at the mouths of the monsters. Reese and her friends then seek out the help of her hot neighbor, who is the leader of a training program that fights the things that go bump in the night. Reese goes to the facility in search of answers, but she ends up finding so much more. Reese learns about weapons, fighting, monsters, and most of all, herself. Then there's Oliver Steele, her trainer who becomes much more. Reese is scared to open up, afraid she'll only get hurt again. Can Reese save the world, learn to trust her heart, and find the strength to learn about who she really is? She better. Her life depends on it.
