15 year old Anastasia Adams has spent her entire life on run. She and her mother have never spent more than 18 months in any one location, often times leaving with just the clothes on their backs. Despite the havoc that this is wreaking on Ana's social and academic life, her mother offers no explanation as to why it is they're constantly moving, or even what it is they're running from. But that all changes one night in the woods of Pelion, SC--the night the terror catches up with them.
Fearing her mother dead, and having barely escaped with her own life, Ana is whisked away to world of privilege and tradition. It’s a fairytale come to life. The poor girl used to living out of a suitcase is now a resident of one of the most exclusive addresses in the world. The people there adore her and she catches the eye of a young guardian who sees her as a refreshing change to the girls he’s grown up with.
If only they could find her mother. If only she knew the consequences of being born a “conjurer.” If only she knew who that green eyed stranger was, the stranger who’ll tell her about a past too romantic, and too tragic to be real. In the end, she’ll have to choose between the boy who has captured her heart and the stranger she can feel down in her soul, assuring at least one of them an almost certain death.
The first thing that came to my mind when I read the synopsis for Grey Eyes was that this book could either be horrible or really really good, and in this case it was the latter.
This book is like something I have never read. Sure there are some things that a lot of books have in common, like the romance aspect but this was just such a refreshing new experience for me.
As, I said before with the romance aspect, there are somethings that are similar to books we read today, but Brandon Alston and Q. Ramey were able to create and unexpected outcome, that the reader can`t help but either love it or hate it.
In Grey Eyes Ana is faced with so many new things in her life that in the next two novels, of the trilogy, could either break who she is as a person or change the world.
With this book there are some many twist and turns that you just don`t expect that, but for me I think they made the book that much better.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars
