Isle, Jes Dory

"During a blue moon a child will be born. She will become the hidden child and emerge from the ashes of darkness."

When I started reading this book, I had no idea what it was about. I didn't even read the synopsis. I was surprised at the world Jes Dory created! Such a dark, magical world. Full of secrets, lies, death, powers, love, anger, family, enemies, friendship, betrayal, and bounds. What more does a book need? Awesome creatures and a great story, you might say! Well, this book has awesome creatures, a great story, and so much more!!

What do you do when your aunt is constantly moving you different places? When you find out things about your past that don't make since? What happens when your family history just doesn't add up? Nora is in for a crazy surprise the day her aunt moves her back to Stone Isle. Nora learns that she is destined for greatness. She is the girl that the island has been waiting for. she is the girl from the prophecy. she is the daughter of a lamian and the daughter of a sireni.

"The weight of the world was swallowing me and my heart ached, beating as though to tear itself apart."

I absolutely loved this book! I loved the story, the characters, the personalities, the creatures, the darkness, and just about everything! There is so much going on in this book. There is not a good time to ever put this book down. I can't wait for the second book! Jes Dory has an amazing mind and I crave more of this world she welcomed me in to.
