White Raven by J.L. Weil
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Received a copy via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
After the death of her beloved mother, Piper and her younger brother have been shipped off by heard dead-beat dad to live with her mysterious rich grandmother on Raven Hallow. Piper is determined to make her summer as miserable and sucky as possible. Or so was the plan until she met zoe and her her sexy, devil may-care brother Zane Hunter. There is something strange about Zane, however, aside from the electric passion they share(read as: insta-love). They've got their work cut out for them when Piper's destiny ends up being much larger and more important than she could have ever imagined.
Insta-love. god I hate it. soulmates, yes I don't mind that plot. But I really get a stick up my butt when "soulmate" is the reason they fall in love. The only reason I let it slide is becausee their banter is hilarious and this new mythology is fairly interesting.
This was a great YA fantasy read, though I'd definitely recommend it for ages 16+ as there are some mature themes such as loss and possible sexual themes.
I'll say that it was definitely interesting enough that the moment I finished it, I hopped on Amazona and bought the second book. After that, I started on this Author's first book series, Divisa.
In short, for anyone older than 20, in my opinion, these are quick fun trashy reads that will make you smile. No hard thinking. We all need books like that once in a while :)
