Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz

Amazon Publishing: Skyscape, 2015.

Noa is just getting back to school after the unexpected death of her beloved sister. She’s doing her very best to be strong at school and at home—places that still seem filled with Isla’s presence. But soon after she arrives, a new student begins to fill her thoughts. Before she can avoid it Noa, has fallen for Callum and becomes tangled in a world where Fae are real and dangerous, and Callum and his needs could prove the most dangerous for Noa.

This book drew me in with its emotional intensity. Noa is shouldering a huge burden, attempting to keep her family functioning in the face of terrible tragedy while also trying to make her way back into school. She’s an admirable and sympathetic character. Every conflict in the story revolves around love and loyalty, which I found extremely compelling. It’s a complicated love story–the best kind in my opinion. I read through the story quickly, and I’m already eagerly awaiting books two and three of the trilogy.

I read Shattered Blue as an electronic Advance Reader Copy given to me by Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
