I also wanted to add that I received this digital copy of the ARC through netgalley. Thanks!
Skye never questioned the story of her life. Her Aunt Jo adopted her after the death of her parents when she was just a child, and together they flip through memories the way some people flip through photo albums.
She never questioned if the stories were true.
Until the night of her 17th birthday, when the arrival of two strangers intrudes on her cozy life. Polar opposites, like fire and ice, Asher is dark and wild, while Devin is fair, cold, and aloof. Skye has no idea what they want—only that their presence coincides with the beginning of some shockingly strange events. Events that Skye, if she dares to think it, might be responsible for causing.
High up in the mountains of Boulder, Colorado, Skye finds herself caught in the middle of an ancient battle, one that began untold millennia ago. Torn between unpredictable Asher, whom she loves, and the infuriating Devin, who she can’t stay away from, her fate is murky as a starless night. And as the secrets of her true identity are revealed, Skye realizes that her destiny may reside in the Heavens—or somewhere darker.
DeLibrarie (Del) Summary:
Holy Hannah! I LOVE this book. Not only is there a cute boy that I totally adore... but there are 4! Asher, of course, being my favorite because he's the dark-haired bad boy. He actually reminded me a lot of Patch... only just a little less bad. ;) It has been a really long time since I had the sensation where I like physically could not put a book down... that is until I started reading this one. I loved this book because you are so in tune with Skye that you completely understand her... and her indecisive behavior towards Asher and Devin. This book was just so easy to read and sooooo suspenseful. The ending is KILLER... lets just say if Davies doesn't come out with a sequel... I might have to cry a lot... just sayin'. Overall... Love it... You should buy it when it hits shelves!!!! :)
