When Ania moves from London to Swansea city in Wales she is hoping that her life will get a bit more exciting, after all she is running away from her controlling mother to taste more freedom and feel more independent. Everything seems to be going the way she wanted until she almost dies while taking a quiet walk around the beach in the late evening.

When she opens her eyes, nothing seems the same…

She starts seeing people that no one else is able to notice. An enchanting looking man keeps following her and Ania’s life seems to getting more exciting than she ever wished for.

After the attack something changes inside her, she has been blessed with the new frightening gift of seeing and hearing sprites all around her… the magical creatures that only existed in folklore, myths and legends of Britain.

Gabriel is attractive and handsome but no … he is not a vampire. He keeps coming back and Ania feels an instant connection between them but this might get her into more trouble. Supernatural romance is not on her mind right now.

Because he is forbidden to even touch her … the line between the death and love has never been so thin and the sprites won’t stop whispering until … she will choose to love or abandon Gabriel.

This book makes me so sad. Not because the content is sad, but because I couldn’t finish reading it. I absolutely love the cover and the summary sounds exciting. Unfortunately, the story itself doesn’t live up to either. I made it most of the way through the book, but gave up when I realized there really wasn’t any plot developing.

The start of the book was exciting. Ania’s overbearing mother is a mess with her leaving for school, and on the very first day away Ania is attacked. But that’s about it. There isn’t really much else that happens. Other than a lot of sex. And not clean, YA-style sex. Be warned there is an erotic-style sex scene.

It seemed that the whole story revolved around Ania either crying and pining over a boy, or she’s freaking out at a boy, or she’s sleeping with a boy. Not my cup of tea, and so I quit. I’m still going to sigh and pet the cover though, because I still utterly adore it.
