After her first day of meeting her new best buds, Arriana and Penn and oggling this total jerk Daniel. Luce realizes she really hates this place and just wants to go home, but sadly this is home now. A guy in her class starts giving her the attention that a girl really wants, the proper attention, he is sweet and charming, and of course good looking, Cam. Even though Cam is all of these things, and he does not try to hide it, she just can't help but still feel a pull towards Daniel, even if he was a jerk to her that first day, and has been again everyday since.
Days go by and Luce feels more and more drawn to Daniel, after he saves her, and they are able to steal a few minutes alone, she knows now that there IS something more to what she feels, she just doesn't know yet, with the help of her best friend Penn, she starts to research Daniel, his family, his past, and even though she continuously comes to dead ends, it doesn't stop her. After a terrible accident at the school leaves one student dead and her injured, Daniel again saves her, even though she feels like she knows he saved her in a more magical way than what everyone else knows, she can't prove it just yet. Daniel is different, she is different, but she doesn't know what kind of different they are.
After the accident, Cam takes Luce on a trip off campus, and Daniel saves her... again. He tells her a story that she can't possibly believe, but she does, for some reason she does believe what he's saying. Then all hell breaks loose on campus, and Luce has to decide who, not what is reality, Daniel or Cam, and what she should do. Because her very next kiss could be her very last, it is definitely life and death.
I loved this book, it is definitely Young Adult material, and I know they say " you are only as old as you feel. " and technically I'm not THAT old, lol. I'm still not considered in the ' young adult ' category. Anyhow, like I said, I loved this book, I like the mystique, and intrigue. I also like the love story that was there, the way true love can last for hundreds of years, that was sweet, especially since I really will not sit down and read a romance novel, lol go figure. But I do recommend this book to people who like the fantasy world of books, I read them all the time, and I'm definitely looking forward to Torment.
