Trisha's debut novel is an exciting whirlwind of action, romance, and supernatural powers. I couldn't wait to read this from the moment I read the description, and I definitely wasn't disappointed.
Dez Harkley is a part of an ancient and nearly extinct race of shape-shifter guardian's, and she was a Shythe. They protected the Egyptian pharaohs and now protect humans. And with Dez's seventeenth birthday coming up the only thing she thought she had to fear was the Change.
That was at least until their enemy race, the Narcolyms, arrived in their haven and began integrating into their society. Dez and her friend's know that theirs more going on then their being told, but they aren't sure what it is. And with Dez's new out of control powers, she'll have to figure out how she fits into it.
I absolutely loved this from the moment I started reading it. The world Trisha created was fresh and imaginative, with a little steampunk twist. Everything from the background of the Shythe and Narcolyms to the powers they possessed was incredibly thought out and wonderfully delivered.
The relationships that Trisha developed with her characters was a major part of what I liked about this book as well. You could really tell how everyone got along and how strong their connections were. I had a difficult time keeping from crying in certain places and screaming out in others.
This was a remarkable debut and one that I'm so glad I got to read. One thing that I would have liked was to have gotten a bit more background on the Shythe and Narcolyms. We learn a lot about their powers and shifting and how neither likes one another, but for me, personally, getting more information about why they had such a hatred and such would have really added to. Maybe we'll get more in the next one *hint, hint* *cough*
But seriously, I definitely recommend this book and can't wait to read more for this author. She has a wonderful way of weaving a story and drawing readers in!
