So what's it about?
Some people sing at night to drive back the darkness. Others sing to summon it . . .
Bron Jones was abandoned at birth. Thrown into foster care, he was rejected by one family after another, until he met Olivia, a gifted and devoted high-school teacher who recognized him for what he really was--what her people call a "nightingale."
But Bron isn't ready to learn the truth. There are secrets that have been hidden from mankind for hundreds of thousands of years, secrets that should remain hidden. Some things are too dangerous to know. Bron's secret may be the most dangerous of all.
I got the ebook (back when I only had a Nook Color) when it first came out. I read it aloud to my hubby, and we were totally immersed in the story. I really felt for Bron who just wanted to have a chance at a normal life. But he has no idea how far from "normal" he is. The story spirals into a dizzying array of surprises.
I loved Olivia and her sweet husband. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the high school at Tuacahn since hubby and I attended the play there that's described in the book. I look forward to the next edition in the series, which will include three more books: Dream Assassin, Draghoul, and Shadow Lord.
What's really cool is that the enhanced book is now available.
