For years, Kadence Sparrow has been trying to hide her true self. Now secrets and loneliness has become her best friends. That’s all until she literally stumbles onto Cole Spires. 

Cole has always been about duty. Honing his fighting skills, fighting bad guys, basically he always had to be at his very best. But all that changed when an accidental bump with the newl girl unravels his world. 

Celestial Gods and Demon childs have been gighting an ancient war amidst the humans. When the whole world is at stake, can love between two opposites survive?


Well this has been an interesting discovery. I am not a big fan of the whole teenage/young adult books that are coming up in spades, but the book has kept me in a mid-range of emotions. While the plot line is definitely invigorating to say the least, the characters are all teenage with their whole family of teenage dramas which does gets annoying. The only saving grace is the fact that the plot-line doesn’t let go in its intensity and pace. It really does make it difficult to put the book down. 

The cover image definitely lives upto the description of a mystical lonely girl and the title simple is enough to keep the intrigue going. But am I a fan of it? Not really. 

My opinion: There is only one way I can describe this book if I have to recommend it further; Reasonably better Twlight Overload. 

My rating : 2.5 out of 5
