Synopsis : "Am I losing my mind?"
Paige couldn't help but question her sanity. What other explanation could there be for her hearing a conversation held barely above a whisper in the back of a classroom full of students? What about coming home to find one of those very classmates lying in wait in the darkness of her home, ready to attack her?
Confused, frustrated and feeling every ounce of her social ostracism, Paige confides in the one person she's always been able to count on: her mom. But when her mom reveals a deeply rooted, unbelievable family secret, Paige discovers her world is filled with more than she ever imagined possible. A world where fairytales live alongside nightmares and secrets are the glue that binds them together. Suddenly no one is who they seem and Paige is faced with more questions than answers. Can she survive in a world filled with creatures scarier than anything she could imagine and where deceit runs as thick as blood? Or will the truth send her over the edge?"
O.k. I started reading this book and I was really interested in it. As I was reading I found Paige to be a typical yet incredibly immature 17 yr. old. Even though the entire book was seen through her p.o.v. I never felt even a flicker of I interest in her as a character .
When she discovers her first abilities / powers the ensuing fight with Rachel should have given her a CLUE a out her heritage from her fathers side of the family. Why was this never brought up?
I also thought the use of the Internet and the description of Paige's bedroom and general personality completely didn't flow with the way she acted in her Mother's home dimension. Even people who have the most limited education would never be so rude to royalty. Paige is supposed to be in the running for valedictorian at her high school? I had to wonder if I missed something huge in the plot line?
Aside from the constant annoyance of Paige and her inconsistencies as a character there was also the unusual romance/ friendship between her mentor/ friend? I think , and this is a stretch that this tale could become a good story, but as it is I have no interest in following the ins and outs of Paige and her upcoming adventures. This book was just not for me. That's saying a lot, usually if Fae are involved I find some enjoyment . The only thing I enjoyed about this story was that it was over. I say this not to be mean, but in hopes that maybe with more effort it could become great.
