Theia Alderson has always led a sheltered life in the small California town of Serendipity Falls. But when a devastatingly handsome boy appears in the halls of her school, Theia knows she’s seen Haden before- not around town, but in her dreams.
As the Haden of both the night and the day beckons her closer one moment and pushes her away the next, the only thing Theia knows for sure is that the incredible pull she feels towards him is stronger than her fear.
And when she discovers what Haden truly is, Theia’s not sure if she wants to resist him, even if the cost is her soul.
This is my second time reading this book. When I heard book two was coming out, I just had to read it again. Which again is a benefit for you because I didn’t write a review of the book the last time I read it.
It’s not every day that you can say a book was beautiful, but Falling Under truly is. The imagery is amazingly detailed – you can’t help but be completely immersed in this world. The characters have their weaknesses, but they really complement each other well and make those weaknesses less obvious.
I have to admit, I LOVE Haden. His character is strong, charismatic, and dangerous. For me, this is one of the best male characters that I’ve read in a book written by a woman.
What I’ll tell my friends? Pick up this book today. It’s a fast read and dangerously delightful. Once you’re done, get book 2, Dreaming Awake – that’s what I’m doing.
