BLURB: Stephen Wilson, a 17-year-old arrives at Minneapolis in search of a better education. However, he ends up getting more than he could dream of. Lisa Morgan, a gorgeous girl who happens to offer similar subjects with young Stephen. Her beauty, like a stirring fragrance that draws every male towards her – including Stephen. These two meet in an incident that not only changes their life but releases to them a whole new world.
Follow Stephen and Lisa as they travel through a world where romance and mystery intertwine.
COVER: This book is young adult fantasy, but the cover seems to focus more on the romance aspect than fantasy. Perhaps it would make sense if I had read further into the book, but if I were a fantasy lover using only the cover to judge if I made a purchase, I would probably pass this one by. I like, however, the font that was used for the title.
FIRST CHAPTER: Stephen Wilson arrives in Minneapolis via plane. Though he's visited before, this is the first time he'll be staying for a while. He even has a new house--his house. With the help of his cousin Stacy, he gets acclimated at school. His world quickly turns upside down when he meets Lisa Morgan.
KEEP READING: I hate to say this about a book I've had for quite some time, but I could barely make it through the first chapter. Between the grammar and how much information is jammed into this opening, I had to control myself to keep from skipping portions of it. There is a good deal of telling in this chapter, so I couldn't get into Stephen's head very well. I wonder if slowing the pace of the first chapter might have helped a bit. There's a lot going on and you meet several people. I honestly have no idea where the book is going.
