“Alice Ayre is no ordinary teenager. She took her first name from a statue in Central Park, pulled her last name out of the air (literally), and she’s actually almost a thousand years old. In fact, the only “ordinary” thing about Alice is that she’s in love.
Alice was a sylphid—a winged air spirit—when she spotted Daniel Field camping in the Adirondacks and lost her heart to the handsome NYU student. Intangible to the human senses, her only hope of winning his heart resides in becoming mortal, even though transmutation is forbidden by Paralda, ruler of the air. Risking punishment, however, seems a small price to pay for a chance at true happiness.
Tracking down Daniel in New York City ends up being surprisingly easy. Getting noticed by him for all the right reasons is another story, especially when the human world keeps tossing challenges in Alice’s path. Just when she’s mastered zippers and buttons, she catches herself dropping a sugar packet into her coffee and mistaking a photo of John Lennon for one of Daniel’s relatives.
Her eccentricities raise the occasional eyebrow with Daniel and his friends, but her quirky charm, sweetness, and sincerity win out. Before long, she lands a job, begins a relationship with Daniel, and starts settling into her new life—until her past comes after her.”
While I enjoyed the plot line, I had a hard time connecting with the characters and her feelings for Daniel. I can understand her curiosity but some of the things she did was really elaborated. I just couldn’t connected with her when instead of getting the feeling of falling in love she was more obsessed with him.
I did enjoy the plot line. I liked that her past came back to haunt her and played a big role in an future decisions. I liked that she grew strong over a short period of time to fight for what she believed in. As the reader, the good vs. evil plot really help bring more out of the book. I felt the fight, but most importantly I felt the strength in the characters coming into who they are.
This is a great book for a fast read on adventure and finding who you are. If you like an different earth planes, newbies to earth, and fighting, then this book is just for you.
I give it 4 BITES!
