“Your daughter is special”

Special, that was an interesting word for it. More like broken. Broken and scared she was losing her mind. Or maybe she’d already lost it. Thoughts, images, ideas that had no business in the mind of a child raced through her brain, taking over her consciousness until all she could do was shut down and let them run. There was no room for her. Maybe there wasn’t really a “her” underneath all the noise. The only thing that tethered her to her body, to the here and now was the pain. Careful always to hide the marks, Natalie relied on her knife to feel alive. 

Sent to a college she couldn’t remember applying to on a scholarship she didn’t try for, Natalie clung to the hope that she could hide her madness from the family it was destroying. Alone at last she would finally have some modicum of peace, right? 

Luka took the assignment reluctantly. In his Senior year, she was the last “special” student he would have to work with before heading off to intern and hopefully land the job, start the life his family had planned for him. The same one they wanted for his sister before she took her life. 

Two broken souls with a rare ability in common, Luka and Natalie form a friendship that promises to heal them both until fate intervenes. Faced with a lie so great it threatens all Natalie has come to believe, she must make a choice: lie down and accept it or fight for those she loves.

About the Author:

HK lives in the frozen hinterlands of the far North. The long, cold months provide ample opportunity to hunker down with her computer and create adventures far more enticing than scraping ice and getting frostbite.

Between books HK reads voraciously. Anything with a good plot and compelling characters are her broad parameters. One is as likely to catch her with a copy of Don Quixote as with the latest Kristen Ashley.

When not writing or wowing the corporate world by day, HK practices martial arts, plays with her dogs and matches wits with her teen. Next winter she intends to brush up on her Spanish and escape the cold for somewhere more tropical.



I was expecting more from this novel than I received and I don't know if it happened because the synopsis and the cover were more intriguing or because in my head sounded better than in reality. 

I don't want to go in details about this book, but I was hoping for more: for a more original idea, I was hoping that Natalie was special because of another thing and not just that, I was expecting a more action packed and suspenful novel and I was expecting to feel more. Why all these didn't happen?

They didn't happen because me and the book had different thoughts about everything. I was hoping for more originality and that didn't happen, I wanted the characters to be more complexe and unique and to express more feelings and emotion and I really wanted some action. But for me, the book delivered somthing that I can find in a ton of different books, kind of the same plot scheme, same characters and I almost felt nothing through out the whole novel. 

Nothing was wrong with the book, but for me was just an average one, with a plot and characters that I felt reading and meeting for several times in different moments on my reader life, and I didn't like that. I don't like when I feel that I've read a book in another book or when a character is same with another one. I, as a reader, want unique characters, original plots etc. And sometimes this doesn't happen because the book is not written to be different and original or because I don't like and feel the writing style.

So, without blabbering added, this was an ok book for me, nothing special, another novel in a sea of new novels and yeah... I don't know if I should recommend this or not. But I think you can try it if you're not like me and you have read a lot and you have the feeling that is story was done and redone is another books.
