Firefly (Cicada #2) by Belle Whittington
Published Date: February 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal
The Story: “The darkest days are ahead of us,” Andrew whispered as the drape of shadows slipped away, allowing Blair to awaken. And in her heart of hearts she knew it was true. The unmistakable signs were all around her, growing within her. She was becoming something more than human. All she could do was accept the inevitable.
“I’ve become a freak … an alien. I no longer belong to the human world,” Blair told her true love, and he held her close, determined never to give her up.
“I’d stay in this darkness forever as long as I could be with you. Wherever you are … that’s my home.” Everett meant every word. In fact, he’d willingly give up his own life to protect the girl he’d always loved.
But there was a storm brewing … a firestorm so strong and catastrophic that it could keep them apart forever.
That storm roared into town wearing a brown leather bomber jacket and riding a motorcycle.
Ash was like a secret in human clothing … a dangerous secret. Everything about him was mesmerizing – right down to the swirls of ink that flowed over the smooth muscles across his chest and around his arms. Being with him was like playing with fire.
Blair knew all about playing with fire.
She knew something else, too. A small quiet voice deep within whispered that she really would be separated from everyone and everything she’d known and loved.
Because some secrets run too deep.
My Review: WOW! I loved Firefly! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. It was truly amazing. Cicada ended with Everett and Andrew going off to "college". At least that's what the parents thought. Blair struggles with being alone, and then she realizes that the others are still out there. And she has some strange powers going on.
There are many twists and turns in this book. It's hard to know sometimes too, who is good and who isn't. I cannot wait to see what book three will bring! Check out next with with a guest post from Belle Whittington on how she came up with the ideas for the titles- Cicada and Firefly!
