GREAT START TO A NEW SERIES March 25, 2013
MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS..
Jonathan has me Hook Line and Sinker with this Amazing story and has left me wanting more this is one series I will be keeping up with.
The story line is great it has a nice flow there are a lot of things going on but you don't get lost in them you know exactly what is happening.
The main characters are written beautifully you connect with them especially Conner's character he is just so easy to like.
Image if you will being a 18 year old boy who doesn't know who his father is, who works for his mum has not long been dumped by his girlfriend Katie, meets another girl (Laren) while out for a run and suddenly Conner's world changes forever and that's not even half the story.
Conner is so lovely he doesn't lose who he is at any time in this book even though his world is turned upside down. His ex-girlfriend Katie dumped him but yet he is still there for her and when she calls upon him in her darkest hour he's there and Katie does play a big part in this book.
Then he meets Laren another great character who works for her father they own land and businesses and this is where the back story lies as others feel they own the right to that land.
There is a quick bond cemented between Laren and Conner and when Conner is caught up in trying to save her and her brother Lu she is the one who risks everything and goes against the council and their rules.
Morrigan is another great character I loved her she also plays a bit part in this story. She is not what she seems and has been watching Conner all his life and stands by his side when he faces the council.
Faust believes the land belongs to him and his family and believes he is better than the council and takes matters into his own hands and is involved with the dark power that is yet to come. Faust is the one who goes against the council and breaks their rules and he is the reason why Conner ends up facing the Council you think he is evil I don't think we have seen evil yet but it's coming.
The book doesn't end on a cliff-hanger it just leaves you wanting more and to follow Conner on his journey but I am left with few questions. One being Who is Conner going to choose Katie or Laren ? And yes I know who I want him to end up with.
This is a thrilling read and a great first book in what I can see to be an Awesome series well done Jonathan you certain have a new fan in me.
