Left for dead at the side of the road in an outlawed town, Nicholas is rescued by a human girl. Plagued by fevered dreams and a lethal illness, Nicholas doesn’t know what to make of her kindness. If she knew what he was, death would be a merciful gift.
Ardin Patterson is a gifted author and storyteller. I say both because being a great author does not always mean that the audience will be focused on every word, or invested in the characters. I don't think I skipped a single passage, I was so worried about Nicholas, Rose, Diana, Roland, Zanna and Micha.
The author does an excellent job of portraying deep, flawed beings who love and (in some cases) hate in equal measure. These people (like us in real life) are so easily swayed to cruelty as long as they feel justified, but in the same moment, they will show compassion. I am invested in what will happen next. I want the best for Nicholas and Rose. Their blossoming romance is sweet and true, but I don't trust those villagers.
This is not my genre but a teen recommended this book and being twice her age I decided to humor her. I picked it up and kept turning the pages LOL ! For some reason the vibe, feel , moral message and images that it invokes for me are a combination of Avatar, twilight and Harry Potter, I suppose you have to read it to see what I mean. Main message makes you think about how you treat others who may look different or may very well be different. Good read, enjoy !
