When the one thing you live for is denied to you, do you let it go or do you fall?

Jade, like any other student at Brushwood High, awaits the start of the school year with a certain measure of dread. Worse, she is being threatened by a voice that only she can hear—a voice that lurks at the edges of her awareness, haunting her and warning her of something unknown. She has always been able to count on her two best friends, Claire and Nate, but can she confide in them now? About this? Would they even believe her?

Life takes a turn for the better when she meets Avan, a darkly handsome new student who, somehow, seems to drown out the voice and make her feel at ease.

But Jade soon comes to realize that good things don’t last forever. When everything spirals out of control, she is shattered by something she never saw coming. Dazed and despairing, she must now overcome tragedy and embrace her true existence and a new but dangerous love. Will she be able to save herself and those she loves, before it’s too late? Or will she let the surrounding darkness consume her?

My Opinion

My first thought of the book was, "wow, this is great!" Why did I think this? Because the prologue was gripping. A prologue can be life or death for an aspiring writer. If it's bland and boring a reader will not hesitate to put it down. I'm even guilty of doing it. Is it cruel? Maybe. But, a book is supposed to entertain, to draw the reader in and if it doesn't, well, who's going to read it? Ms. Swing wrote a successful book that I am convinced will be best-seller someday, even if it wasn't my favorite novel.

I loved reading Feathermore, but I did have a couple problems with it. From the very beginning, I was drawn to the characters, the paranormal feel, and most of all the story itself. It seized me and I couldn't put it down until the last chapter. Notice I didn't say "the ending." That is because I was disappointed by the ending. It just stopped. Like a cliff hanger.

Another thing I was let down by was Ms. Swing never let's us know who the other guy was. There were two guys Jade was attracted to, Avan and the other boy. Sure, we are told his name, but we never know how he keeps appearing into her dreams, or why he did. Tres annoying.

I do still want to read more, but I can't help but feel let down by the unanswered questions. However, there were a ton of great things that happened in the novel that keeps a readers attention.


To all teens and adults that like a good paranormal book, with a lot of emotion.

Lucy Swing lives in sunny Florida with her husband and two children.

She is a YA Paranormal/ Romance writer, whose works include: Feathermore #1 (Feathermore Trilogy), Bloody Valentine, the novella, and Bloody Valentine is also offered in "Death by Chocolate," an anthology consisting of 6 fantastic YA short stories with a chocolaty twist.
She is an absolute book hoarder and must always have a book at arms distance. Music is her muse, and there is always a soundtrack that plays along her life.
