Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.
Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.
Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only are she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.

This book was epic! I could not put it down at all. I love Ednah's writing and seriously, this book got me hooked from the start!! So when I finished this book, I was literally sitting there with my mouth hanging open while I wait for the last word to sink in. OH MY GAD CHRISTO!! I NEED TO THE 2ND BOOK NOW!!
So we meet Raine Cooper, she's a lively girl, aka normal. With her father's disappearance and her mother's strange behaviour, she kind of have a messed up life. Raine was the type of the girl-next-door in some ways, and she was kind of tough in another.
We also meet Torin. OOOoooo Torin!! I love Torin, and also very jealous of Raine. I mean, he ives next door to her for ef's sake. Torin sounds like the player type but really, he isn't. He's kind, a jerk in some ways, and also he has great (thick sarcasm) friends.
I love the whole plot of this book, and I also love Raine and Torin. But most of all, I LOVE ANDRIS!! Seriously! That guy is such a jerk. But he's really funny. He's the sort of guy who you would immediately hate at the beginning, then suddenly love straight away!!I love him, I love his jokes and I love the way he's so....like, you can't tell what he's going to do next.
The pacing of the story was just right, it wasn't too fast, or too slow, and it didn't miss out any parts. There were some part when I just totally wanted to shout "NOOO!!" but as if they were going to listen to me. LOL!
This book was an awesome read, but really? CLIFFHANGER? Are you trying to kill me or what? I cannot wait for book 2 and the release date better hurry up!! You need to pick up this book now!
