Krista’s emotions are put to the test when a move to
Struggling to appear normal, Krista enrolls in a new school and finds it to be nothing like she thought. Her new life is sent spiraling out of control from a strange connection with a boy, Mark, who claims to know all her secrets.
As Krista begins to explore the emotions that Mark evokes in her, secrets about their mysterious past and their predestined purpose threatens to separate them just when they have found each other.
I really like King's writing style, I found myself emotionally involved with the story at the end; really unusual for me. There is a smoothness of transition and story-telling that reminded me of Karen McQuestion. That's what she'll be in a few more books. King drew me in to feeling for, rooting for, caring for the characters. I loved her premise and the roles the respective characters played. Finally, an "alpha" male lead in a YA paranormal romance I could "sink my teeth into!" Sometimes, the males are written to be "wimpy," and it doesn't resonate for me. Mark was a real dude and should feel that way to chicks that read it.
I *loved* the ending with the action and violence! I wish YA's were written with more of this contrary interaction. So many are too sappy and slow-paced to get a reader's blood pumping! The ending more-than-made up for the slow start!
I will definitely be purchasing any future installments. Keep writing, Tiffany!
