Hello Readers, welcome back to my blog.
We have a new King, Prime minster and Commissioner of police; we pray the Lord guides them as they carry out their responsibilities.
Hunter Yee has perfect aim with a bow and arrow, but all else in his life veers wrong. He’s sick of being haunted by his family’s past mistakes. The only things keeping him from running away are his little brother, a supernatural wind, and the bewitching girl at his new high school.
Luna Chang dreads the future. Graduation looms ahead, and her parents’ expectations are stifling. When she begins to break the rules, she finds her life upended by the strange new boy in her class, the arrival of unearthly fireflies, and an ominous crack spreading across the town of Fairbridge.
As Hunter and Luna navigate their families’ enmity and secrets, everything around them begins to fall apart. All they can depend on is their love… but time is running out, and fate will have its way.
Luna is the only child of her parents and she is an academic overachiever which makes her parents proud. Hunter is the intelligent eldest son of his parents but he refuses to conform to their ideas of how they should live their lives. Luna and Hunter’s families hate each other since both heads of the families went for the same job years ago. Since then, the parents have despised each other and the children of each family have learnt to follow. But there are ties binding and pulling Hunter and Luna to each other.
As the story progresses, we discover that the view children have of their parents is either obscured by rose coloured glasses or it is a judgemental view without knowing the background information of why the current situation is as it is. Strange things continue to happen in Fairbridge and the POVs that we read from do not seem alarmed o question much why these cracks are appearing. Rather, the adult POVs do not question but the young adults are of course curious and are off exploring, they often solve the issue before the adults notice.
Luna’s parents remind me so much of my parents and how they talk about other people. I gave 2 out of 5 stars. It was very sedate and boring for me but if a reader wants to relax and enjoy the innocence of first sweet love, this is the perfect story. I got the book in my fairyloot box as the second book so it wasn’t something I would pick up myself. Whilst it is not my cup of tea, it was a good read. My rating is based on my mood and preference as a reader rather than the quality of the plot or writing which was great.
