A little while ago, Christi Whitney asked me if I would please review her book, Grey. Christi is a great friend and I love everything she does (we’re Whovian friends and you know that means a special sort of friendship, right?) so I agreed.
Though I really enjoyed the story, I was honest with Christi about not being a fan of supernatural books/romance. Vampires, werewolves, zombies…just not my thing. So I didn’t feel like I could do a review of the book since I’ve made a pretty public stand against those sorts of books. (Confusing eh? Because I did like this book – the writing is excellent and the storyline is VERY a-typical for this sort of book.)
So rather than do a review, I told Christi that I would be happy to do a book spotlight here and let others choose for themselves. So here it is!
Sebastian Grey always thought he was a fairly normal teenager – good friends, decent grades, and a pretty sweet job in his foster brother’s tattoo shop.
But when Romany gypsies arrive in town, Sebastian discovers his world is not what it seems. There is an age-old feud between his family and the gypsies – and this isn’t the only secret his brother has been keeping from him. His life is not his own. The girl he’s been dreaming about has just turned up at school, and he feels compelled to protect her at all costs.
Even if that means life might never be normal again.
