Ari can’t help feeling lost and alone. With teal eyes and freakish silver hair that can’t be changed or destroyed, Ari has always stood out. And after growing up in foster care, she longs for some understanding of where she came from and who she is.
Her search for answers uncovers just one message from her long dead mother: Run. Ari can sense that someone, or something, is getting closer than they should. But it’s impossible to protect herself when she doesn’t know what she’s running from or why she is being pursued.
She knows only one thing: she must return to her birthplace of New 2, the lush rebuilt city of New Orleans. Upon arriving, she discovers that New 2 is very...different. Here, Ari is seemingly normal. But every creature she encounters, no matter how deadly or horrifying, is afraid of her.
Ari won’t stop until she knows why. But some truths are too haunting, too terrifying, to ever be revealed.
My thoughts: This story is about an orphan who was put in foster care by her mother. She assumed her mother didn't want her, but truth be told she was trying to keep her safe.
She ends up going away to find out more about her past and when she does she finds her mother is dead. She finds out things about her mother that she never would have guessed. She also finds love...in unexpected places.
She helps the love- Sebastian find his father. Although that was by accident, her father was there too, but she didn't realize that at the time. But she did try to help him escape but he chose to stay in the prison alone.
And she find out that Sebastian is a vampire, his mother was one as well and his father is a wizard.
I just have to say that most of this is good. Parts of it were a little too weird for me, you'll see that if you check it out. I also am so glad she found Sebastian. He seems like a really great catch.
My rating: 4 stars
