A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies
A Beautiful Dark centers around Skye, an orphaned teenager experiencing strange occurrences such as flashes of silver eyes and destroying thermostats without touching them. Growing up, Skye has been oblivious to what she truly is until meeting 'cousins' Devin and Asher. These guys are strangely competitive when it comes to winning Skye's attention and we soon learn that they have their personal and strategic reasonings why.
The ending of the book is what saved this story for me and brought this book up from 3 to 4 stars out of 5. Davies was able to pull the story together and create such a chaotic mess between Skye, Asher, and Devin that really got the blood pumping and wheels turning in my head. Jsut when I thought I knew what was going to happen, everything just blew up in my face. I love when a book can surprise me it was just frustrating that I got hooked at the very end! I will be checking out the sequel to learn more about Skye, Asher and Devin!
