Iris has a secret. She lost her memory eight years ago and never told a living soul. After an asthma attack one night she finds out that her dreams of a strange house on a snowy island may be a memory resurfacing but the more she learns about the past the more she realizes the life she has been living is a lie. As the façade her father has built starts to crumble around her she will have to decide which means more to her; the truth or her life.
“Today is a special day,” Falcon said, watching Iris’ every reaction.
“Yes, it is,” she replied, smiling up at the sky.
“Your eyes still come alive when you watch them,” he mused softly.
“What?” His odd words snapped her out of the hypnotic daze that the beautiful dancing had put on her.
“You...I...uh,” Falcon stammered as she looked directly into his eyes. For once she had the upper hand and wasn’t the one stumbling. Her heart skipped a beat, feeling the giddiness come upon her.
You have always had the upper hand when it comes to him. He has always loved you. That is why...
For the first time since Iris could remember the voice stopped, holding back, keeping something from her that Iris knew she wanted to know. Soon...the giddiness faded back into confusion. As though the voice had changed its mind with Iris’ reaction, it softly continued.
...he waited for you. Why the past is, what it is.
Loves me, Iris thought.
Yes, the voice returned.
First, I loved the concept of this book. It is 100% original, so I've never read anything like it. The hardest part for me was that the story was extremely cryptic until over half way through. That made it hard for me to connect with the characters at first. Especially when names would pop up and I had to go back and make sure I hadn't missed someone. Once I finally made it to that point where I could figure some things out, the book got really good and I was glad I hung in there. I definitely want to read the next book to see how the story develops and how the author's writing improves. I only say that because that seems to be the way all series go. I'm so glad I got the opportunity to be apart of this tour.
