IN HER DREAMS HE’S SEDUCTIVE, CHARMING AND UNDOUBTEBLY DANGEROUS . . .
Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life, but when a devastatingly handsome boy appears at her school, she feels every urge she’s ever denied burning through her at his slightest glance.
Theia does not understand why she dreamed of Haden Black before they met, by as the Haden of both the day and the night beckons her forward, Theia knows she cannot resist him – even when she discovers what he truly is; and even if the cost of that knowledge is her soul.
. . . IT ONLY TAKES A MOMENT TO FALL
My Thoughts: Falling Under begins with Theia witnessing a burning man plummeting from the sky and from that moment I was hooked. It starts out similar to other YA paranormal novels, an awkward teenage girl, who has lost her mother, her father is overbearing or doesn’t pay much attention to her (in this case he is overbearing), falls for the hot new guy who turns out to be just a little bit bad but falls for her anyway. But things start to happen as you read that make this story take on a life of it’s own. I love that Hayes doesn’t follow the typical YA paranormal formula and has created something unique and highly entertaining.
Falling Under is a little darker than what I am used to reading but I really enjoyed that dark side.
I particularly enjoyed reading from Haden’s perspective especially towards the end of the book, where we got to know Haden in a whole new way.
I recommend Falling Under to any YA paranormal fans.
About the Author: Gwen Hayes lives in the Pacific Northwest with her real life hero, their children, and the pets that own them. Baffled by the fact that not everyone has people talking to each other in their head all the time, Gwen decided maybe she should start writing down what they say. She told her family she wanted to be a writer in 2007, they all nodded, and the adventures began.
She writes books for teen readers about love, angst, and saving the world, FALLING UNDER is her debut novel.
