Sometimes you just dont know what to expect when you begin to read a novel. That is where I was with this one. Adrian knows what she wants and that is and has always been Nikolas. Unfortunately, when they finally have their moment, he tells her they should have never taken that step. Adrian is devastated and decides her long friendship with Nikolas must end. This part of flows a little too fast and we don't g et to connect as much with the heartbreak and feelings of both Adrian and Nikolas.
The Paranormal aspect of this book comes out of nowhere. Nikolas has a "friend" who visits him every couple of months and when she gets wind of Nikolas's feelings for Adrian, her jealousy leads to the death of Adrian (Via demonic summoning of a Jinn). Nikolas is devastated having lost the person he only just realized he loved.
Adrian is held captive by the Jinn and not dead as anyone believes. When Nikolas finds this out, he decides to go on a mission to save her, after recruiting some help from unlikely sources.
This was not a bad book, there were parts of the book that seemed a little disjointed, but overall I think it was a great premise and story line. I wish we would have had more of a connection to the characters and I would have felt more invested in what was going on.
Action packed, this story is definitely a paranormal thrill ride.
