This book has gotten a lot of praise since it was released and I'll be completely honest, I was shocked when I first saw it. I had no idea that Hilary Duff had written a work of fiction. I was immediately skeptical, not because she, in particular, wrote it, but because it was written by a celebrity. I wondered, as with all books written by celebrities, about how much of the praise was in direct response to the actual quality of the book and how much had to do with the face that the author was already famous and had a substantially large fan base.

I was shocked to discover that I was sucked into the book as soon as I began reading it. It was very well written and the characters were believable and easy to relate to. I fell in love with the story and finished the book very quickly. There was action, romance, paranormal qualities, and a lot of other stuff to keep you entertained. I definitely plan to read the next in the series,Devoted, and hope I enjoy it just as much.

Characters: Sage.
Rating: 4 Stars.
