Review: Feathermore by Lucy Swing

Title:  Feathermore
Author: Lucy Swing
Date Published: 3/2/12

When the one thing you live for is taken from you, do you let it go or do you fall?
Jade, like any other student at Brushwood High, awaits the start of the school year with a certain measure of dread. Worse, she is being threatened by a voice that only she can hear—a voice that lurks at the edges of her awareness, haunting her and warning her of something unknown. She has always been able to count on her two best friends, Claire and Nate, but can she confide in them now? About this? Would they even believe her?
Life takes a turn for the better when she meets Avan, a darkly handsome new student who, somehow, seems to drown out the voice and make her feel at ease.
But Jade soon comes to realize that good things don’t last forever. When everything spirals out of control, she is shattered by something she never saw coming. Dazed and despairing, she must now overcome tragedy and embrace her true existence and a new but dangerous love. Will she be able to save herself and those she loves, before it’s too late? Or will she let the surrounding darkness consume her?

My Rating:

My Review:
Jade just coasts through life. She is not super popular, but she is also content with the friends she does have. I love characters who bring sarcasm and humor into stories instead of just brooding and self-pity. 

Mysterious new guy starts at school? Nothing new there, but the mystery in this novel in general is taken to a whole other level from most YA Paranormal books out there. I definitely feel like this one was a little darker and keeps readers on their toes a lot longer than most books. It was refreshing!

The romance in this book kinda takes a back seat to every other aspect of the story, but is still definitely there. 

Overall I loved the way this story flowed, it didn't seem to have any slow parts everything went very smoothly. I really felt connected to Jade and invested in her life. I liked the way the secondary characters shined in their own ways. But warning, be ready for a HUGE cliffhanger!
