Book Description:

Lilli sees things no one else does.

Desperate to make sense of the dreams and visions that have plagued her since childhood, Lilli confides in Devin, her closest friend, and the boy she’s fallen for.

Instead of questioning her sanity, Devin confesses to secrets of his own, which are far darker. His revelations about magic, witches and demons stun Lilli. But it’s what he knows about Lilli’s mother, long believed to be dead, that leaves her feeling betrayed. Despite her anger, Lilli will have to learn to trust Devin again, because he is the only one who can protect her from a dark danger that’s coming for her from a world away.

My Take on the Book:

This was a really fun and interesting read. It starts off on a pretty sad note and definitely tugs at the heart strings but it gradually picks up speed and pulls away from the realm of sadness and into a new mysterious and magical world.

I loved all the little nuances that made this ‘magical’ book different. The 2 different worlds and the way that magic is explained. It all makes for an intriguing and unique read.

And while, for the most part I loved this book, there were times where I found myself annoyed at the main characters. I’ve never been one to hate on romance, on the contrary, I am always rooting for the couple but the speed of their love and the development of the relationship just made what I felt was a really well thought out and fleshed out story seem rushed. It wasn’t the characters per say, as I really liked them, but just the general rushed aspect of them as a unit. They already had some pre-established history but I guess I didn’t feel like I had enough of a back story.

4.5 Quills

With the exception of what I felt was a rushed romance, this book is a solid read. I can only assume that this is just the beginning of a series and if that’s the case then I really look forward to reading more about The Wilds and seeing where Lilli’s journey takes her next.
