But when Dante Alexander, foreign-exchange student from Italy, arrives, he turns her life upside down and Abby finds herself drawn into a mystery whose roots reach into sixteenth-century Florence and she uncovers a dangerous truth that threatens not only her future, but the future of those she loves.
I thought this was a good read. I liked it better than Twilight. The characters were more likeable and believable.
I liked it better than twilight too for several different reasons. I think the time traveling plot was done in a really clever way, also.
I loved this book! I read it in one day. Wonderful story. I can't wait for the sequel.
Looks like what I wanted to say has already been said. Way better than Twilight. Good characters, intriguing story, much better writing in general. I'm looking forward to the sequel as well.
