Their love was meant to be.
When Megan Rosenberg moves to Ireland, everything in her life seems to fall into place. After growing up in America, she's surprised to find herself feeling at home in her new school. She connects with a group of friends, and she is instantly drawn to darkly handsome Adam DeRÍs.
But Megan is about to discover that her feelings for Adam are tied to a fate that was sealed long ago—and that the passion and power that brought them together could be their ultimate destruction.

Let’s be honest, hands up who hasn’t read the Twilight Saga yet . . . So, you agree with me that it’s kinda difficult not to recognize a copy of it, right? And doesn’t this bother you? Because I gotta say I have a hard time when it happens and when it’s something so obvious, like this book, I explode in a very disappointed mood. The events follow step by step the Twilight story, the characters are practically the same except for the fact that we have no vampires and no werewolves here, the similarities are so disturbing that I seriously took in consideration the idea of stop reading it. But since I’m a stubborn person I have to finish the book I picked and so I went on until the very end . . . It wasn’t an easy thing to do, the simplicity of everything and the way the characters acted and interacted didn’t make me feel a single emotion during all the reading except a huge, deep disappointment.

It’s a shame because it even had potential, but unfortunately it didn’t see the light, it was ruined thanks to the Twilight clone the author chose to do. And the way I see it, you can like or dislike a book, but have an original plot with its own characters is what makes you respect any book, good or bad.
