Half-human, half-angel, Meridian Sozu has a dark responsibility.
Sixteen-year-old Meridian has been surrounded by death ever since she can remember. As a child, insects, mice, and salamanders would burrow into her bedclothes and die. At her elementary school, she was blamed for a classmate's tragic accident. And on her sixteenth birthday, a car crashes in front of her family home—and Meridian's body explodes in pain.
Before she can fully recover, Meridian is told that she's a danger to her family and hustled off to her great-aunt's house in Revelation, Colorado. It's there that she learns that she is a Fenestra—the half-angel, half-human link between the living and the dead. But Meridian and her sworn protector and love, Tens, face great danger from the Aternocti, a band of dark forces who capture vulnerable souls on the brink of death and cause chaos.
So I loved reading this book! It was different, and so awesome to read! The idea of fenestra's, well, was really awesome, though it's going to be hard journey for Meridian, as this book illustrated, and this is just the beginning!
So it would suck that for your whole life, for dead and dying things to be attracted to you, to the point where your family says that your a danger to them, and you need to leave, to go to someone that you've never really met. That would suck. But Meridian deals with it!
I enjoyed these characters Meridian, who's gone through all of this not knowing what was going on. Tens, the guy that is connected to her, for more then a romantic reason, for practical purposes, and her great aunt, who's lived this long for Meridian to be ready for what's coming.
Because something big, dark, and bad is coming. And it sucks that Meridian has to deal with it, but someone has to. And a lot of awful things happen in this book, from the train wreck, the mob, the fire, her aunt's death, and having to run away. But there's hope for the future!
Such a fantastic book, and I'm so glad that it's a series, because that means that we get more, yeah!
