Publisher Description

A dark and lush paranormal romance set in a richly reimagined New Orleans—now in paperback!

Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.

Her search for answers uncovers a message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.

She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.

Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.

It was awesome.

Yes, if you look at other reviews of this book, Ari can be unrelatable, with her strange appearance and kick-butt attitude and all. I'm not even completely sure what Sebastian sees in her (oh come on, you just KNOW they'll get together). But the writing is fast, nicely-paced, and engrossing.

Sadly, the part that made me love this book so freaking much, the best part, is absolutely full of spoilers. I can't tell you what happens. But it's so heart-wrenching, so perfectly written out, that I'll guarentee that it'll make you a fan of this book.

Exciting ride from beginning to end, Fans of Sarah J. Maas will enjoy

Beautifully descriptive and well developed characters and plot. While this is technically a youth novel (I’m well beyond anything resembling “youth”) I think adult lovers of the fantasy genre will enjoy this book from beginning to end. So entertaining I completed the read in less than 24 hours and prepping to download book 2. If you’re a fan of Sarah J. Maas (Court of Thorns and Roses & Throne of Glass series), The Red Rising Trilogy, The Broken Earth, Red Queen, Mortal Instruments, and the like, this will be right up your alley.

Go for it

Don't hesitate if this is up your alley and you're looking for a book. The plot is complex and exciting; the characters mysterious and relatable; and the setting beautiful and captivating. I absolutely loved reading this. There are so many different facets of this book that can be found from Greek mythology to vampires to voodoo. Not to mention of course, a bit of paranormal romance mixed in.
