Joclyn Despain has been marred by a brand on her skin. She doesn’t know why the mark appeared on her neck, but she doesn’t want anyone to see it, including her best friend Ryland, who knows everything else about her. The scar is the reason she hides herself behind baggy clothes, and won’t let the idea of kissing Ryland enter her mind, no matter how much she wants to.
The scar is the reason she is being hunted.
If only she knew that she was.
If only she had known that the cursed stone her estranged father sent for her 16th birthday would trigger a change in her. Now, she is being stalked by a tall blonde man, and is miraculously throwing her high school bully ten feet in the air.
Joclyn attempts to find some answers and the courage to follow her heart. When Ryland finds her scar; only he knows what it means, and who will kill her because of it.
This is a wonderfully written book. I LOVE Joyclyn! She reminds me of me now. She has walls up that she only lets two people into. I love that she understands that she is angry and hurt. Her father abandoned her no matter how she or anyone could spin it. She felt abandoned because of the things she could not control. Then there is her love for Ryland I thought that was a beautiful thing. That they have loved each other for so long. That their love is so Simple. It is just love in its most simple and purest form. You honestly would have thought they had been crazy intimate at some point but that is the furthest thing from the truth. I really enjoyed this book. I hated having to finish more than anything because I felt so much apart of the story. The magical aspect was a bonus. Rebecca Ethington is a great writer. She is very creative. This book was simple when I say that I mean you’re not dealing with lusty teenage hormones. It truly is a story about fighting to get the person you love back and dealing with loss. It has action, romance, and a few select comedic moments. This is a great book for anyone to read who enjoys magical beings being apart of their reading universe. I loved every moment. this is an amazing book for anyone to add to their collection and read.
