My review

Delaney is just a sixteen year old girl that just wants to do what she wants for once in her life. All her life she has been sheltered b/c she is a Ekloge Warrior, that has a special gift. They were made to one day to fight the Sarafites in war when they try to take over Edenly. Delaney doesn’t want to be a part of any of it. She just wants to be a normal teenage girl, but she knows she can’t. Until she starts talking to Sam, but does Sam have another agenda on his mind or does he really like Delaney. She was always told it was dangerous to get involved with someone that is not a follower, but Delaney is tired of it all and doesn’t care. What Delaney dosen’t know is that she is about to find out how dangerous it is to let your guard down.

 OMG dude this book was the bomb!!!!! There is no other word for it. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. All of the characters were very well developed and everything was believable. And to top all that awesome off, they also have gifts. How freaking cool is that?!?! I really didn’t want it to end and I kept looking and hoping that I had a lot more pages left. LOL When it finally ended. My first response was NO NO NO NO, How can you do this to me. That ending just left me wanting more. I need to know what happens, like I need oxygen to breathe, that’s how good it was. Before this book, I was in a rut, but Dazzle pulled me right out of it. :D I highly recommend you read this book.

Delaney was a delightful character. She just wanted to be to live her life being normal. Sure, I would like a gift, but everything comes with a price. She has a big responsibility on her shoulders. I like to think that me and her would be great friends, even though she’s not supposed to talk to other people. I still try and befriend her. Overall, she was a very likable character.

Micah was a bit of a…..IDK. I don’t really know how I feel about him. Yes, I like him and I think he is a really good friend for Delaney, but he is just indecisive…kinda like me LOL He doesn’t know what he really wants, except to find the others like him. Once he sees Delaney with someone else, he gets all jealous, even though he is with someone else and continues to see her. I mean really, come on!!!

Sam was a little bit rough on the edges. He had the whole bad boy persona going in the beginning and then you find out that he is a big softy underneath. He just thought he had to act like that b/c he thought everyone expected it of him b.c of his dad. I don’t really know when I started to fall for him. It could have been a lot of different times. And then there were times, where I didn’t know what to think. Who am I kidding, I totally love the bad boys. LOL
