A review by Terri Kinckner
At first glance, this book seems to fit the same mold as most YA Paranormal books out there. Girl grows up isolated, girl turns 17 and finds out she’s different, girl meets boy, girl falls in love. This book is that…sort of. Although it has all of these elements, it’s quite different!
Iris (Izzy) grew up isolated and home-schooled by her father and caregiver because of, she thought, her severe asthma. Her mother passed away but she had no memory of her. In her dreams, she would visit an island covered in white feathers and a home she could not enter.
Her father informed her that she was going on a trip, which happened to be the place that she dreamed about. Once there, she meets a boy she used to know but now doesn’t remember. Little by little, through some internal dialogue, she remembers that he is her mate, and what she is… an owlet. She is in danger, her father has been protecting her all of her life from those who wanted her dead.
I’m not going to give away any more of the story, but the owlet thing wasn’t your typical werewolf, witch, or fae. I took the journey of discovery with her, not quite fully understanding until the very end, but enraptured. I can’t wait to read the next one!
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
