Published: 6th January 2011
Book: For review
Format: Finished copy, paperback
Contains: Mild drug and sex references, mild swearing and violence
Deirdre, a gifted musician, finds herself infatuated with Luke, a mysterious boy who enters her life, at the same time she discovrs she's a Cloverhand-one who can see faeries. Trouble is, Luke is a faerie assassin-and Deirdre is meant to be his next mark.
Dee's been accepted into one of the world's best schools of music, so why isn't she happy? Is it because she found out that her best friend is in love with her? Or could it be that Luke, her boyfriend, is a faerie assassin, here to welcome her into a brutal death? She's a Cloverhand, therefore the only one who can see Them. They watch her sleep. They watch her eat. They follow her everywhere. Heck, even her dog's a faerie. And who can you trust, when who you trust is dead?
This book was brilliant, although it lasted a bit too long for me. The cover gives nothing away, yet is absolutely gorgeous. This book was breathtaking, and full of magic. By the end of it, you'll be questioning if everything you ever thought... is a lie.
I would rate this book an 8/10 and would recommend it for ages 12+.
It's watching me.
