Synopsis:Raised by unorthodox
parents, Kasey Reese has always struggled to be invisible, to not be
noticed, to avoid conflict. Running from a broken relationship, Kasey
flees to Spain on a scholarship, to restore the comfort she finds in
anonymity. Destiny, however, has other plans for her - a life
threatening, life-altering journey into the supernatural when she meets
the men of the cave.
My Review: I'm so glad I read this book. It was unique and once I started reading it I couldn't stop.
is spending the school year in Spain so that she can avoid her
relationship with Teal, her ex-fiance. While in Spain Kasey meets Dion,
an immortal with the ability to run extremely fast. It seems that Fate
has brought them together because no matter what happens Kasey and Dion
always find a way to make everything right between them.
book was good, really good. I don't think I normally read books like
this because I've been trying to think of a similar book to this but so
far I have yet to come up with another book.
The only reason
this book didn't get five stars was for only two reasons. In the
beginning of the book there is a lot of Spanish and I'm probably not the
only person out there that doesn't understand Spanish. I chose to take
French instead of Spanish so during the parts in the beginning when
almost everyone was speaking Spanish I was kind of lost. But I didn't
stay that way for long. After maybe a paragraph or two I could figure
out what the person had said before so it wasn't all that bad. My other
problem with the book was how Dion acted/talked. As I said before I
loved all the characters but the way Dion spoke and acted was strange. I
get that he's supposed to be really old because he's immortal but he
didn't even try to sound like he was from this century. He was really
formal and he sort of acted like a goody two-shoes. The only time he
didn't was when he was fighting Sam and defending Kasey.
thing is that the good parts of the book far outweighed the parts that I
didn't care for. I liked all the Kleon brothers, yes even the "evil"
ones. And I really liked Kasey's brother Nolan even though I only got to
know him through Kasey's phone calls with him. And how could I forget
the lovely family Kasey was staying with? I loved those characters too. I
also really enjoyed the story. I really want to know how Kasey is
related to Pandora and how the Kleon brothers are going to deal with Sam
and James. I also liked how there wasn't really a love triangle and I
sort of hope that it stays that way but I feel like there might be a
love triangle between Kasey, Dion, and Teal.
Can't wait until the next book! I received this book from the author. Thank you!
