No one ever accused Penelope Jackson of being normal, nor did they suspect the dark secret she kept. A dangerous web of deceit and secrecy unravels when news of a stranger's death puts Penn on a collision course with the very person she's been hiding from her whole life. Her fragile world is shaken to its core with the sudden arrival of Vacavious and she soon discovers the bizarre and magical world surrounding her seemingly ordinary life.
No one is who they claim to be, including those closest to Penn. A mysterious security detail emerges from the shadows scrambling to protect her as powerful forces await the fall of her protective veil on her eighteenth birthday.
Penn prepares to fight against unseen evils before it's too late. The world of Nighmerianotte and its population depends on her survival, for she is the Sanguine, the Black Five.
Yeah! It was really great to read this book! It was different, and the synopsis was intriguing, and it's why I signed up to be a part of this tour! I wanted to know what was going to happen, and I'm glad that I did, because it was just so enjoyable!
This was a book about secrets. The things that you know the secret is there, but you don't know what it is. The ones were you have no clue that there was a secret, let alone its contents. And discovering/unraveling/understanding them was just great to read!
I really enjoyed Penn and her mysteries. There was more to her then met the eye, and then we started to see those sides of her, and they were a great part of this book, and a really interesting one at that! Just loved reading about her!
This is the first book in the series, so we learned a bit about this world, but there is still a ton that we don't know. And I felt the ending was really great for the start of the series, closed some threads while starting others for the next book!
Yeah, this book was really fantastic, and I'd love to read more of this series!

I live with my family in a small town tucked away in the redwood forest located on California's northern coast.
