MY REVIEW: I give this book a 4*
This is set in Salem Massachusetts, great setting for a group of friends who have special powers. The “normal” residents have no idea what is going on around them, they are shielded. Celeste and her best friend Gena have powers, they can summon the wind and use nature as an ally. When they are being normal 16 year olds they have the usual discussions regarding boys, sweet sixteen parties and their basketball games. Outside of this they learn more about the battle of the millenia. A battle between Elementals and Spirituals, with an Adjudicator overseeing. But Celeste starts to have very odd vision like dreams. A new boy starts the school and is attracted to Celeste, a new girl starts and hates Celeste for no apparent reason.
Overall this is a good book, it is aimed at YA readers. The characters are well presented, though I did feel that at times they were very stereotyped. The plot was very good, easy to keep up with, with a few good twists included.
I would recommend this to YA readers aged around the 14-16 ages. Though as an adult, I did enjoy it. My initial thoughts were that it had a Twilight feel to it, I by the way enjoyed those books a lot. The book kept me engrossed right the way through and had a very satisfactory ending.
I read this book for Readers Review Room my review is my own, my opinion is honest and unbiased. http://www.readersreviewroom.com/
