Arcadia's Gift

Arcadia's Gift (Arcadia Trilogy #1) - Jesi Lea Ryan

(I read this book as part of the Nine By Night set, which I got on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Since I'm not going to read all nine books in one go, I'm posting short reviews separately.)

2.5 stars: mostly an OK story, but one that I wouldn't really qualify of "urban fantasy" (see my above comment, though—if not considered as part of this bundle, then disregard it). More like YA paranormal romance. I liked that the romance part developed more naturally than in most novels pertaining this genre, although I admit I'm not a good target audience for that in general. I also liked how it took into accout the whole family after the tragedy, not only Cady and her feelings for a boy. However, I didn't like the way she reacted in the end (I would've expected such an outburst sooner, but not after everything that happened). Overall, it was an alright story, yet one that won't leave me with much of an impression, I'm afraid.
