What do you do when you find out your whole life wasn't true?
Kira Dawson comes home to her mother, father and sister from boarding school. She's going to start going to the public school and trying to be a normal teenager. This doesn't happen. Oh, she meets new friends at school, gets in with their group. Has a little crush on Luke but he turns out to be more like a brother and she gets a crush on one of the evil misfits, Tristan. But is Tristan all that he seems? Is he really as bad as his friends? Possibly not.
He was the kind of boy you wanted to comfort and to kiss, the kind you knew would break your heart yet hoped against all odds wouldn't. The bad boy with a soft heart, the sort of trap a girl knowingly jumped into.
I saw a lot of Twilight in this book (I love Twilight and that's not a big deal) and it threw me off at first. The blurb mentions Twilight, The Vampire Diaries and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I can see Kira being a strong female character like Elena in VD and Buffy. She gets told she's a conduit and she can do all of this stuff, she might can destroy the world. I think she handled it all pretty good and she does kick some butt in the book.
I liked the book well enough, I loved Tristan and I loved Kira's character. She is a kind person that takes on what she has to take on and does it good. There are just random things that didn't make this a 4 or 5 star book for me and I can't quite put my finger on it. Either way there are plenty who love the book and plenty who will love it more than me.
FYI: at the time of this review it's free on kindle =)
I might continue with he series later on because I do have a crush on Tristan and I love the concept of the Conduits. Hopefully I will love the rest of them more.
