Review: Flame by Mari Arden

Some secrets change your life forever.

Have you ever felt invisible? I do. Everyday. I can't get close to anyone, and people can't get close to me. Everytime I feel a friendship beginning, something inevitably happens, and I become invisible again. Unseen. Ignored. It's been a part of me for so long that it's hard to imagine anything different.

Then the Saguinox arrive, and my life is forever altered. People are fascinated by these beautiful creatures who look and talk like us. They're alluring. Seductive. Intoxicating. And two of them are going to my school. Rhys is everything I shouldn't want, but his eyes are like something from a memory. I can't help but be intrigued. He's the only one who can really see me.

Some secrets you're better off not knowing.

I had been found on a cold winter night with nothing but a blanket, and ashes covering my skin. My mother saved me from death, and took me in with love. But she couldn't save herself. I didn't think heroes were real anymore until the day Kaiden saved me. I couldn't believe in miracles until the day he revealed I was the miracle they had all been hoping for. Deep inside I always knew my past mattered.

I just didn't know my life would depend on it.

My Review:
I finished this a week or so ago but haven't gotten to do the review until now, but what really strikes me is how I still cannot get this story out of my head.  It's an incredible read.  Crazy creativity and an amazing story explodes on the pages of Flame.  The world building, the unique characters, the plot twists --bunches of "I so did not see that coming"-- and loads of mystery pretty much will glue you to your Kindle until completion.  I'd go into more detail, but I don't want to give anything away.  So put out some snacks for the kiddos and lock yourself in your room when you get this baby!

Cover Art:
This gorgeous cover was what first drew me into this book.  Now that I've read it, I see it's more than just pretty art, it hints at this amazing story within!
