Dear Michele Hurley,

We were impressed by your cast of bright, young teens; dark, brooding vampires; and charmingly mysterious shape-shifters, and were quickly taken in by your fast-paced, action-packed plotting. As a protagonist, Megan is charming and captivating as she punches up the prose with funny one-liners and blush-worthy romances.

We admire your talents and hard work, and wish you good luck in all your future creative endeavors.

All best,
Liz T.

Fabulous! – by Laura Cooke

I was enthralled by this book from the very beginning. It caught my attention and kept it. I couldn't put this book down. My children were hungry, my dishes got dirtier, I had to see what was happening to my characters. Definitely recommend this quick sexy read! You will love it!


★★★★★

Awesome Book!!! A Must Read!!! – by Jenn D

I really loved this book and couldn't put it down. The author did an amazing job of creating engaging characters that I couldn't help but love. Megan is a witty teenager that seems to draw everyone in literally. Her role as Guardian gives her a heightened sense of good and evil but there are twists throughout the book that keep you guessing who can be trusted.

If you like vampire romances you'll love this!! Awesome book-can't wait for more!!!

wow – by chel73 "michelle mcqueen"

Why in the world this book doesn't have more amazing reviews...I just don't know. Megan's story is a delightful read. She's a smart and witty teen, who actually acts just like a teen!!! Even after losing everything in her life, she still keeps on going forward. Her lingo and situations often found me laughing out loud. Especially when she starts interacting with Jay. The story was very unpredictable. Every time I thought I figured it all out, well the next page I realized I was dead wrong.

I don't honestly know much about this author but this story is excellently written. My only gripe is I get to the end....and there is the mother of all cliffhangers.....so now I must wait for book two......ow the pain!!!!!

Great work here. It's one of those that you read that you realize that this is why we read....to never want the story to end !!!

Fun read for the summer! – by L. Taylo

Pick this one up! A great, fun summer read. The heroine, Megan, is full of spit and vinegar, but maintains her sense of humor. Full of an interesting cast of characters, especially her love interests, a lot of sexy, suspense and some funny thrown in for good measure. My heart went out to Megan and I ended up rooting for her at every hard decision she had to face...got a little sad when I finished the book! Definitely awaiting the next one.


★★★★★

Highly Recommended! – by Jennie Dehn

I would recommend this story for teens and anyone else who is interested in romance and the struggles between good and evil. There are vampires, werewolves and other forces vying for possession of the Tree of Life. Sprinkled with humor, this book is a quick read and had me captivated by its characters and the twists and turns in their lives. I cannot wait for the next book to find out how Megan protects the Tree and how her love interests unfold.

Para-normally Pleasing – by Heather L. Alexander "Muzz5"

When Megan loses her boyfriend Jeremy and her family in the same year, it sends her into a tailspin. She starts to come out of her funk when Ben, Jeremy's friend, starts coming around. Unfortunately, she also starts having strange experiences. She will soon find out from her aunt and Ben, that all is not as it seems. There is a whole world of supernaturals out there and she is dead center. She is supposed to be the Guardian of the Tree of Life. Vampires want it and need her to get to it. She isn't sure who to trust between her aunt, Ben and her very strange teacher Jeliel. Jeremy may or may not be dead and she will end up having to pick which guy she will trust and be with. Her survival will depend on an unlikely hero. She will eventually be confronted with some horrible truths and lies. Is she strong enough to survive it all? "Evil wants to feel despair, so we will give up. If good people gave up, all that would be left would be...fear...and fear creates more evil. Without people donating their fear and negative energy, evil would die."

I loved this book, it has vampires, shifters, angels, psychics, romance, lots of action and a great story. You think you know who the good and bad guys are, then you aren't sure, then it switches again. I love that it kept me guessing. Cliffhanger ending left the book open for a sequel.


★★★★★

Enjoyed the book – by MMW

Enjoyed the book, I had a hard time putting the book down. The characters were interesting. I really like Megan. The author did a wonderful job telling Megan's story. I hope there will be another book soon.

Unexpected – by tinagoof

Michele Hurley has created a world where a human girl is torn deciding between her love for a vampire and a werewolf. Does this sound familiar? I was also skeptical while I read the first few chapters and kept expecting that this book was going to be more of the same story we have heard before. However, Hurley surprised me as she threw twists and turns in that made this book hard to put down. The addition of other elements such as magic necklaces, trees, and the concept of guardians added to the intrigue of the story. The characters were interesting and Megan really acted and made decisions like a typical teen her age. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.


★★★★★

Brilliant from start to finish – by Theresa Spencer

I thoroughly enjoyed this book the characters drew me in and the story was gripping from start to finish, its fair to say I'm completely hooked and can't wait for book two 'The Awakening'. This book will suck you in, a must read for anyone who likes all things supernatural, xx.

I couldn't put it down! – by Miss BeeBee

The title and cover of this book intrigued me. I was curious to read what the possible connection could be to "Immortal" and "Lost". I was hooked after the first chapter! I could not put the book down.....the suspense built with each passing chapter. I developed a "love-hate" relationship with some of the characters, only to be totally surprised by their actions, purposes and emotions.

The descriptive prose, painted a vivid picture. So much so, I would cringe or yell-out, "Oh, no!" The suspense carried through to the very last page and to the very last word.
The author didn't disappoint me...WOW! What an ending. I'm begging for a sequel!

Great entertainment – by C. Toste - Buecher wurm

I was a First Read Winner of this book and I really enjoyed it very much. It had wonderful characters and a good plot line and I had a real hard time putting it down. Also plenty of intrigue, a new spin on Vampires and the supernatural world, some raging hormones and plenty of action and humor. Can't wait to find out what will happen next in the series. A great and entertaining read.

From First-Reads shelf on Goodreads.com – by Cathie

I received this book from the author in a Goodreads giveaway. Thank you for the opportunity to read & review it. I have to admit I'm not sure why this book received so many 5 star ratings. It's not that I hated or even disliked the book but I found it just... ok.
I did find it was predictable in places but also amusing & funny at times.

However I didn't like how it ended at all, huge cliffhanger... guess I will have to read the second book to see how it turns out.
