Stars: 4/5

Blake Duchamp...

He's all that Winter Adams can think of. Ever since their fateful meeting at Pilgrim's Lament. Ever since he looked at her with those emerald eyes. Ever since he saved her life.

But Blake isn't all that he seems. There is a strangeness about him, something dark and otherworldly. Something dangerous. In his attic is a secret he would kill to defend, but Winter seems to have a special ability to make him forget his duty. And he is her only protection against the gathering darkness.

The only problem is, to protect Winter, Blake must risk exposing her to an even greater danger. Himself.

I've waited a very long time for this one and finally I got this book! The cover is just stunning! It's the first young adult paranormal romance book that I've read that's been written by a man. I only found out at the end of the story that is was written by a man!! It starts out familiar. There is a dark brooding hero and a girl with a sad past. And ofcourse they are drawn to each other. The romantic hero has a secret and must keep the girl away from him, just to keep her safe. But.. thinks get very interesting in this book. The main character Winter is a very nice girl and your typical shy girl. She lost her parent in a tragic accident. She has insecurties about her looks and likes to be invisible. I liked that she was so self aware. She knew her faults and recognizes other's faults. She meets Blake, the dark romantic hero. He's mysterious and I really wanted to know what his secret was! I liked the fact that there where glimpses into someone's past. I really liked reading about Madeleine and her love, it was very unique. Where things got an interesting turn, was when the cats showed up. Picture an garden full and full of cats. I really liked the aspect of cats as guardians. The ending took a great twist and I really want to read the next book in the series!
