Story Line: This book seemed like a cross between the Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan, Significance by Shelly Crane, and Storm by Brigid Kremmerer. This book had some greek mythology, which I love, it had paranormal elemental powers, which I love to read about, and it had soul mates, which I absolutely adore reading about. The concept of the book was well thought out and the story line was easy for the reader to following along with.
Writing: The book was written in both Brielle and Jace's perspective, which is something I love in books. The readers get an inside look into both Brielle and Jace's inside thoughts and emotions. Sometimes the same scene is described in both their perspectives, which just makes the scene complete and utterly amazing. I loved Nikki Narvaez's choice to write in both perspectives and it definitely made me love the book more.
Brielle: I loved reading about Brielle character from the beginning and especially through out the book because of her resilience. All the obstacles and challenges that were thrown at her and yet she still bounced back and managed to keep herself together and fight back.
Jace: Jace was the perfect balance between badass, romantic, protective, cocky, and gentlemanly. I definitely knew that I would love his character since the second chapter, where we get introduced to him. I just have to admit that if I had to spend an eternity with someone without aging I would definitely consider Jace, plus I just love his name too.
"He stepped closer, only a couple of feet away from me. He smelled heavenly, like rain and citrus. “Every night. I've been trying to figure out a way to find you, to save you, and here you are, so close all this time, and I never knew,” he sadly said.
It was my turn to step closer. Tears pooled in my eyes as I said, “I didn't think you existed. I hoped that you did, but I thought I was crazy to believe that I could find you.”
I reached out my hand to touch his face. When I did, a jolt of electricity sparked between us, spreading what felt like burning honey throughout every inch of my body. What was happening to me? Whatever it was, I didn't want it to stop; it was one of those pains that felt amazingly good, almost addictive. Jace's eyes widened as an astonished smile spread across his face. “Unbelievable,” he said as he grabbed a handful of my curls at the back of my head, pulling my face to his to crush his lips to mine.
His kiss was desperate, just like his gaze in my nightmares, only multiplied. I opened his mouth with my tongue, tangling with his as our passion increased. I had never had a kiss come close to this one, and it had just started. He tasted exotic, a subtle sweetness present as he caressed my tongue with his. I clutched his shirt, twisting it in my hands as I tried to pull his body to become one with mine. Heat rushed in-between my thighs and pooled there, sending tendrils of burning warmth up my stomach. I never wanted this to end; the world could stop turning right now, and I would be oblivious, deliriously happy in Jace's lips."
Overall: Overall, this book had all the elements I would want in a book and paired with the writing this book was a definite hit for me. I definitely suggest giving this book a try.
Rating: I would give this book a 9!
