Description: The wound inflicted only a few minutes before was nearly healed. A small cut was the only sign that anything had occurred. I watched in disbelief as it finished closing and eventually disappeared.
“What are you?”

Gods, demons, fiends, eighteen year old Alina Taylor doesn’t believe in any of them, until she meets Samuel Grant and Duncan Michaels, and discovers a world that could destroy everything she loves.
Review: This book was a gift from a very close friend. She was reading the book and told me that I just had to read it, and I understand why she told me to read it. This book was fantastic, and for Laurens first book she did a great job. I really enjoyed her writing style. It was an easy read and everything flowed perfectly. I did not have any trouble following along with the story.
The first thing I enjoyed about this book is that I share the same name as the main character so that drew me in immediately. This book also takes place in Gainsville, FL and I live in Tampa, FL. As I was reading I was imagining this was me and all these things were happening to me. The main male characters Samuel and Duncan are great. They are very handsome, and their eyes are very breath taking. Samuel is very old school. He is polite, has manners, and is every parents dream for their daughter's. Duncan on the other hand is a player, arrogant, and a bad boy. He is every girls bad boy that they cant stay away from. While reading this book in the beginning I was team Duncan and halfway through the book I quickly became team Samuel, but its hard not to love both boys though.
This book will throw you for a loop. In the beginning you think its going to be a book about a love triangle and then its completely goes to left field. Once you think you figured out that curve ball it goes to right field, and you are left with your jaw dropped saying to yourself "did that just really happen."
