Her father left when she was a baby, her stepfather just died and her mother's almost given up - in fact, she's sent her to live with her grandmother in cold and sleepy Maine to 'keep Zara safe'. Zara doesn't think she's in danger; she thinks her mother just can't cope. Zara's wrong. The man she sees everywhere - the tall, creepy guy who points at her from the side of the road - is not a figment of her imagination. He's a pixie. But not the cute, sweet kind with little wings. Maine's got a whole assortment of unbelievable creatures. And they seem to need something - something from Zara...Hide synopsis

I read great reviews on this book. People said it was "the best thing since Twilight." Turns out the first few chapters just have a lot of similarities as Twilight. This high school girl goes to live with her grandma, it's cold there, she complains about it, and when she gets there what else is in the drive way...a new car! The similarities are to numerous including the shape shifter boyfriend but there's no real meat to the story. The werewolf shape-shifter I can deal with but the eagle and tiger are a little odd. Right up there with stopping fey with kitchenware!
I had high expectations for this novel if only because heroine, Zara, seemed so quirky and atypical of supernatural romance leads, and the story itself seemed very intriguing.
The premise of the novel is good but the execution falls short of such. The emotions and motivations behind each character was rather shallow and I was left completely unconvinced about the sincerity behind the love, hate, desperation and fear the characters felt.
The story also moved at an odd pace, slow, then fast, and leaves the reader wondering what exactly is going on.
Overall, a rather disappointing experience.
