Summary: Ever since she can remember, Sonia has had to abide by her parents’ ridiculously unfair rules like not being allowed to date or even kiss a guy. The only reason she thinks she’s being held to these rules is when Sonia was eight, she took a sip of her friend’s drink, causing her friend to do everything Sonia asked.
As her eighteenth birthday approaches, Sonia is finally about to learn why; she’s a Huldra, a dangerous, yet seductive and magical Norse forest maiden who with just one kiss, has the ability to control humans and appropriate parts of their souls. Keeping the rules hasn’t been a problem for Sonia because she’s never really been attracted to any guy.
But when Anthony transfers to her school, every last rule flies out the window. There’s just something about Anthony that she can’t resist—the way he seems to be hiding a deep, dark secret that is connected to her, the way his mysterious blue eyes cause her heart to beat more rapidly, his athletic, god-like physique.
The closer she gets to her eighteenth birthday—the moment she matures into a fully realized Huldra—the harder it becomes to follow her parents’ rules. As graduation day approaches, Anthony starts to show interest in her, but she would never have guessed how life-changing and how dangerous Anthony’s secrets are, and how overwhelmingly intense a relationship with him could be.
Suspenseful, passionate and gripping, E. J. Squires’s contemporary paranormal YA romance brings you on a highly entertaining adventure that you w want to continue on forever.
Review: 4 stars
Wraithsong is a fairytale with a dark twist. I loved reading this book, and honestly I have a hard time writing a review because I liked it so much. The supernatural creatures were very original, which is saying something because I read a ton of books in this genre. I think that the concept of Huldras was great and the background on the creatures was done really well. I found the book fascinating.
I wasn’t 100% sold on the romance, or some of Anthony’s actions, but overall I would say that this was a great book. This was one of those books that I saved like 30 pages at the end because I didn’t want it to be over. I have myself convinced that my boyfriend is a Huldu! I would suggest this book for someone who likes paranormal romance, but is looking for something original. I can’t wait to read the sequel!
I received this book from the author for an honest review
