A mighty flame follows a tiny spark.
Cora Sandoval’s mother disappeared when she was five and they were living in Ireland. Since then, her dad has been more than overprotective, and Cora is beginning to chafe under his confines. But even more troubling is the colorful light she suddenly sees around people. Everyone, that is, except herself—instead, she glows a brilliant, sparkling silver.
As she realizes the danger associated with these strange auras, Cora is inexplicably drawn to Finn, a gorgeous Irish exchange student who makes her feel safe. Their attraction is instant, magnetic, and primal—but her father disapproves, and Finn’s mother orders him home to Ireland upon hearing he’s fallen in love. After a fight with her father, Cora flees to Ireland, both to follow Finn and to look for her missing mother.
There she meets another silver-haloed person and discovers the meaning of her new found powers and their role in a conspiracy spanning centuries—one that could change mankind forever…and end her life.
Scintillate is the first book in this lush and exciting new trilogy, full of romance, adventure and metaphysical mystery
- The storyline was interesting, the auras and energies were unique and an original for a storyline.
- The main character, Cora, and her family were interesting and likeable.
- Ireland, I have always wanted to go to Ireland so it was fun to read about a place I want to travel, like living through the book.
- Insta-love, argh. I understand by the end of the story why it happened, I just wish it would have been portrayed differently.
- World building was lacking, I really was so excited about Ireland, but it just felt like the detail of the green countryside and ancient buildings, ect were lacking
- The meat of the story, the part I was really excited for didn't develop until the last 150 pages. I really wish I could have cut out most of the first part. I know this is going to be a trilogy and there is more to come, but it was a slow lead up.
