Half-human, half-angel, Meridian Sozu has a dark responsibility. Sixteen-year-old Meridian has been surrounded by death ever since she can remember. As a child, insects, mice, and salamanders would burrow into her bedclothes and die. At her elementary school, she was blamed for a classmate’s tragic accident. And on her sixteenth birthday, a car crashes in front of her family home—and Meridian’s body explodes in pain.

Before she can fully recover, Meridian is told that she’s a danger to her family and hustled off to her great-aunt’s house in Revelation, Colorado. It’s there that she learns that she is a Fenestra—the half-angel, half-human link between the living and the dead. But Meridian and her sworn protector and love, Tens, face great danger from the Aternocti, a band of dark forces who capture vulnerable souls on the brink of death and cause chaos.



Someone, somewhere, should invent a radar that goes beep, beep, beep, very fast when a good book is close by! With all the other stuff that was being piling up in my list I almost lost this book, but after months of searching I found it and read it, and it was good!

Meridian is the story of a weird girl who discovers she has this connection to the supernatural. Bang, totally on my radar. She has been around death her entire life; little insects dying, cats who have babies at her feet and then die along with their kittens, and most recently? People. Things dying close to her is completely normal, until her 16 birthday comes along and her family completely flips out, sending her away to live with her great aunt and this completely alluring guy who she is pretty sure hates her. Life couldn't be worse right? Wrong, as it turns out she is a Fenestra, the window, and/or bridge, to paradise, and someone is after her. But the truth is that her worst enemy in reality, is herself.

I reeaally liked this one. I am amazed at how little press it got actually, it is an interesting enough story, and the sequel promises new territory to be covered. The main character, Meridian, is a weird and very relatable girl. Tess, the guy, is charrrming in a very dark way. Auntie is the nicest lady ever!! I would love to have her as my great aunt. And the connection between them 3 was amazing, a lot of people hope for something like that.

The story is covered with the supernatural, religious, and romantic aspects. I think they blend very well together, they balance each other and don't overpower the story. Though at times it could go slow it was a roller coaster ride. A nice Roller Coaster ride. And OH MY GOD, so gory at times!! I really enjoyed the goriness actually, it was just right and it gave it the perfect blend of reality. Amber wasn't scared to go hard core on this book thank the Creators!

I am really looking forward to Wildcat Fireflies, I am so curious as to what route Amber is going to take the story on, and how it will work out.
