Good Reads Summary

Maddie needs a hero.  Her hero comes in the form of Chase Donovan; the love story begins from here.  Chase makes for a great hero, he's charismatic, handsome, protective, loving, etc... and the author doesn't overdo these qualities-he still seems human.  The novel switches the point of view from Maddie to Chase, giving the reader the opportunity to view both of their thoughts and decisions.  Maddie has a few rough edges, but this just adds to the appeal.  The plot is very unique for a fantasy YA novel. The novel contains humor, romance, action, drama, and mystery <-the best qualities for a terrific YA book.  The dialogue was easy to follow and kept the readers interest.  There were no lengthy descriptions and the book itself was fast-paced.  This book is recommended for young adults who enjoy fantasy novels.
