Publisher Description

"Part mystery, part fantasy, this beautifully-written page turner explores guilt, mercy, and love."—New York Times bestselling author Holly Black

Briony has a secret. It is a secret that killed her stepmother, ruined her sister's mind, and will end her life, if anyone were to know. She has powers. Then Eldric comes along with his golden lion eyes and a great mane of tawny hair. He is as natural as the sun, and he treats her as if she is extraordinary. And everything starts to change . . .

Jane Eyre meets Harry Potter. I loved it!

Breath of fresh air in bog of twilight clones.

This book has restored my faith that there are still books worth reading in young adult fiction after all the twilight clones that we've been seeing. The writing style is pretty unconventional but is easy to get used to and works well to convey a unique mood. The plot kept me guessing to the end which has also lead me to hope that I can still be surprised by a supernatural murder mystery. This is definitely a new favorite!

Clever, witty dialogue. Great characters. An entire book of quotable quotes. The plot was confusing at times and I thought the setting could have been explained better. That said, it was the best book I've read in a great while. A breath of fresh air in the YA genre. Loved it!
