Review: Scintillate (The Light Key Trilogy, #1)

Scintillate (The Light Key Trilogy, #1)Scintillate by Tracy Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book was wonderfully written and totally engaging. It was a unique story that had lots of twists and turns. The characters, writing style, and pacing all combined to make a quick and easy to read book that completely sucked me in. As the start of a trilogy, this was a very strong book that left me eager for more.

We dive right into Cora's story without much preamble. She's changing, she can see auras, and she's not sure who to trust. Her friends are hilarious and helpful, earning smiles and laughs from me during almost all of their interactions. Enter hottie Irish exchange student Finn. He's dreamy and wonderfully poetic in his declarations of love and infatuation. The chemistry between them is off the charts! There's a lot of secrets and mystery that keep them from being 100% honest with one another, which only leads to more trouble.

The story travels all over the world and does not give a neat and tidy ending. There's no promised puppies and rainbows to give this book a very happy end for the characters. There are tough roads ahead, but with a trilogy you really should expect there to be a building plot. This book is most definitely worth a read if you're interested in YA romance with a paranormal twist.
