Douglass's story is not only inspirational, but very interesting to look at in terms of a persuasive piece for abolitionists. I read this twice in college, once for a history class and once for a lit class. I have considered teaching it along side Huck Finn giving a more balanced representation of slavery.

Zara’s father died, leaving her a lifeless shell. Her mother decides to send her to Maine, to her grandmother, to try and get her back. But once in Maine, Zara discovers that a man is following her, leaving behind a trail of golden dust. Is he something human, like a psycho stalker? Or should Zara believe her new friends? That the ‘man’ is, in fact, something otherworldly. Something that will not stop until he has Zara… This was a really new, inventive take on the faerie-pixie-were lore, a take I loved. The whole Shining Ones mythology was brilliant, and I really cannot wait to see more paranormal beings in future books. The writing was wonderful, the plot brilliant and the characters real. I can’t wait to see where the rest of the series takes me! Zara was a great lead! Kind, loving, brave and a pacifist, she had this habit – a quirk, really – of reciting phobias when she got nervous – something I found totally cute and really interesting. Plus I just loved her stubbornness, though it did make it slightly hard for to accept the blatantly obvious. She was just an overall great, quirky, cute, funny lead, and I loved being inside her head and seeing how she thought. Nick I also loved. He was just sweet, protective and strong; honestly, what more do you want? Overall amazing, and I loved his strength – I really could tell what Zara saw in him (‘cause I loved him too!). Zara’s new best-friend Issie had to be my favourite character. She was totally hyper, loving and just plain adorable! Basically, she was the exact kind of girl that I would love to be friends with. And their other friend, Devyn, was super-smart. When him and Issie were together – well, let’s just say they were so cute I could just die. And finally, Zara’s step-grandmother, Betty: I loved her! She was really strong and very protective of Zara – something I loved about her: how much she cared for Zara. For everyone. Now, admittedly I guessed a few of the twists, but there were others that completely befuddled me. Also, some of the characters’ reactions to certain revelations felt rather unrealistic. As did a few of the events leading up to those in the book… But, honestly, that didn’t matter to me. I was just addicted. There were great characters, the most amazing writing – writing that made me feel what was being described – plot, facts and an incredible twist on mythology. Addictive, descriptive, thrilling, amazing. I was left wanting – Needing – more. Thank goodness I have Captivate!
