About the book:
Grace Lynn Stevenson is an eighteen year old girl who recently moved with her wealthy, but busy parents to a new city. She's popular, pretty and rich - what more could a girl want? But deep down, she's sad, lonely and plagued by nightmares.
When she meets Sebastian Caldwood at her new private school, she's inexplicably drawn to him and his strange tattoos. Sebastian always gets what he wants - he simply has to wish it; but he's fighting his own inner demons, and struggling to remember a past that eludes him. When he remembers that he is much older than he looks, he realizes that he's seen many people live and die, including Grace.
Once Sebastian realizes his true nature and finds what he has been searching for the past hundreds of years, he also realizes that it is now up to him to protect Grace from the dangers that have plagued them throughout eternity.
Suzi Amber creates a very magical world of love and sacrifice. While a slow start the novel picks up in intensity and intrigue. The main characters are charismatic and attractive. Grace being the picture perfect beautiful young girl; surprising carries a heavy load of doubt and darkness that will allow readers to relate to her character. Sebastian on the other hand is unique and mysterious that will grab readers with intrigue. Honestly I had a hard time not picturing this character as a young Jack Sparrow in the beginning; with his jewelry and tattoos I kept finding myself being carried toward this humorous comparison. As the story continues it become evident that he is nothing like a “Jack Sparrow”, but rather a very attractive and mysterious young man. The story a fresh new twist in the paranormal that I very much enjoyed. The romance between our two main character is honest and true; giving romance lovers a thrilling experience. Readers will enjoy being overcome by this story and its characters alike. I look forward to seeing more about this journey in books to come.
