After her father dies, Rachel realizes she is scared and stuck. Scared of heights, of cars, of disasters harming the people she loves. Stuck in a life that is getting smaller by the minute. Stuck with a secret she has kept all her life: Someone has been watching over her since birth. Someone who tends to show up when she needs him the most. Someone she believes is her guardian angel.
Eaden is a 1,500-year-old immortal who wants to die. Drained by a life stretched too thin, he has requested his final reward – a mortal sacrifice bred specifically to bring him death. But something went wrong. Rachel’s ability to grant death has mutated in ways that threaten to upset the uneasy alliance between mortals and immortals. And utterly beguiled, Eaden discovers that although Rachel is the key to his death, because of her, he no longer wants to die. And he will do anything to protect her.
Swept into a world of legends, caught between the warring political factions of immortals, and carrying the future of mortal kind in her flesh and bone, Rachel must risk everything to save her world and the man she loves.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*
This book was a very fun read! With the dark and deep themes in this book it was surprisingly fun and easy to read. Rachel is a great character to follow as she is a simple wallflower book worm who ends up the center of attention in the immortal world.
Although this book had themes of Romeo and Juliet, it also reminded me of Twilight in a way. When I first noticed the similarities I wasn't phased though, simply because the way this book was written. The language and ease of which the immortal story line is brought into the book is very well done.
Teen girls, wallflowers, book lovers, adult women-all can enjoy this book! The ending alone pushed me along, just so I could get to it and see what happens! I wasn't sure how the book would end and the made turn each page all the more exciting.
Here's where you can pick up this awesome book!!
