My rating: 4 stars
Lou and Dacia, cousins in two of the most influential New York families, are on their way to meet their Romanian family. But what they thought was going to be a family reunion becomes so much more when they learn about the dark family secret and their destiny. Not all destinies need to be followed and not all princes are charming.
This review might be a bit biased since I love anything by George, but this book was like a breath of fresh air. A book dealing with the paranormal that presents it in a unique but classic way. No sparkling or dark angels in this book. I think that setting it in the late 19th century really helped to make it that way.
It was a lot of fun to see the changes throughout the book of Lou and Dacia, their ups and downs and how they react to the revelation of the dark family secret. One thing I love about George's books is that her strong female characters don't have to sacrifice their femininity in order to be respected by the other characters.
No sex, no swearing. Great for teens who love fantasy and the paranormal.
