Just my rambling, plus whatever book I've recently read!
Young Adult, Paranormal
“Then it is settled,” Felix declared. “Come hell or high water, when this is all over, at least one of us here will not make it out alive.”
When Bronwen Snow is pulled from her cottage in the middle of the night, she finds herself seeking the help of three mysterious boys who reside in an abandoned castle deep in the hillside. With only a hasty handwritten note and a vague sense of dread to guide her, Bronwen is forced to put her trust in the eccentric and willful Felix Cavara and his eternal curse – immortality.
Evanescent is a sweet story about a young girl who follows her grandmother's visions and ends up having the adventure of her life. In it, she meets Witch Hunters and Immortals, and even falls in love.
Felix is our main male, although he is supported admirably by Alistair and Loki. This trio of friends have been together since they were cursed by witch who was either incredibly bad-tempered or who had had enough of being taunted, presumably by the boys' fathers too. Anyway, these three try to help Bronwen survive being hunted but uncover a web of lies and hidden truths along the way.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. It is young and engaging with Felix leading the front with his witticisms. To be honest, I didn't feel much between Felix and Bronwen until the end but then it was a punch to the stomach. The ending was bittersweet and I loved every moment of it.
A brilliant story that I have no hesitation in recommending!
