After entering a mysterious tent at the annual Augury Carnival where the words: Come Inside and Discover Your Fortune are persuasively written, seventeen-year-old, Madeline Morgan and her best friend, Dara, come face to face with Madame Anca, an ominous fortune teller who portends the girls’ futures. For Dara, the experience is superficial. But for Madeline, things are different. Her fortune promises that she will soon find true love.
Spurred by Madame Anca’s enticing prediction and a coincidental attraction to an elusive new stranger, Madeline starts to believe that true love might actually exist. But love—like most things—isn’t always what it seems…and for Madeline, this discovery takes her on a dark and mystical journey that forces her to deal with the illusions of love and her own inner strength.
This book will interest the reader right from the start. Madeline is the main character and the story is told from her point of view; the latter feature makes it much easier to connect with the main character. She is an easy character to connect with; she tends to be inquisitive, smart, and kind.
The secondary characters are just as fun to get to know, particularly Dara. Dara is outgoing, mouthy, and sarcastic; she lends comedic relief to the novel. The love interest, Stefan, is charismatic and a bit of an enigma. His secrets cause problems between Madeline and himself. The reader will have fun predicting the outcome of the unusual and mysterious events. Stefan's sister throws in a curve ball that will have the reader scrambling to guess at the villain once again. The book takes off quickly, after the first few chapters.
The plot contains magic and a fortune teller who is not what she seems. The reader will be drawn into the story quickly and have a hard time putting this book down. The characters serve to make the novel more entertaining, the events are fast-paced, and the ending promises a second novel to this series. This book is highly recommended to young adult/teen readers...or anyone who believes in a little bit of magic.
