Synopsis:
A mighty flame follows a tiny spark
Cora Sandoval’s mother disappeared when she was five and they were living in Ireland. Since then, her dad has been more than overprotective, and Cora is beginning to chafe under his confines. But even more troubling is the colorful light she suddenly sees around people. Everyone, that is, except herself—instead, she glows a brilliant, sparkling silver.
 As she realizes the danger associated with these strange auras, Cora is inexplicably drawn to Finn, a gorgeous Irish exchange student who makes her feel safe. Their attraction is instant, magnetic, and primal—but her father disapproves, and Finn’s mother orders him home to Ireland upon hearing he’s fallen in love. After a fight with her father, Cora flees to Ireland, both to follow Finn and to look for her missing mother.
                                                                                                                                                                                           There she meets another silver-haloed person and discovers the meaning of her newfound powers and their role in a conspiracy spanning centuries—one that could change mankind forever…and end her life.

My Thoughts:

Rating: 5 Stars

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.

Firstly I would like to thank the author and the tour organizers for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this book.

Wow!!! I loved this totally!!!

What a great plot and the story line is so good and new that I just got absorbed in this fantastic world that the author created for us. The events that slowly unfolded made me so interested in this story and with each turning page I lost myself completely in this breath-taking book.

The writing style of the author is so rich and detailed that I fell in love with her style of expressing her thoughts on a piece of paper. Moreover the characters are so mature and developed that I couldn't even spot a single flaw in them.

There is mystery, suspense and on top of everything there is true and selfless love that made me cry at times and squeal in joy the other times. I was really anxious to know the truth and cause behind the super powers of our heroine and why her love for Finn wasn't accepted by others but the author kept the secret hidden till the end and I had to read faster to know it.

This is a great and entertaining read that will surely touch your heart and I would definitely recommend this book to others as well. Hope that you guys will love it too.
