Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life, not allowed the same freedoms as the rest of the teenagers in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, she feels every urge she's ever denied burning through her at the slightest glance from Haden Black. Theia knows she's seen Haden before-not around town, but in her dreams.
Theia doesn't understand how she dreamed of Haden before they ever met, but every night has them joined in a haunting world of eerie fantasy. And as the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her forward one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels toward him is stronger than her fear. And as she slowly discovers what Haden truly is, Theia's not sure whether she wants to resist him-even if the cost is her soul.
I DE-VOURED this book. This book is like a mix between Alice In Wonderland and Romeo and Juliet. It has the scary yet magical upside down world and two star-crossed lovers fighting the odds. The dream sequences were very visual, so easy to imagine. Something i really appreciated in this book is the supporting characters were well developed, they didn't just fill in the gaps of the book they were really a part of it and i became attached to all of them, especially Theia's two best friends Donny and Amelia. It was an amazing read and i am dying for the sequel. It's gonna be a long year. My suggestion GO BUY IT!! This book gets a big 5 stars out of 5.
